Beyond Addiction (Beyond #5) [Finn & Trix] by Kit Rocha

I'm not sure what went wrong in this one, but something did.. I just didn't find myself captivated by it, almost till the action in the end and I should say that most of what happened there was really predictable so I couldn't enjoy it as much as I wanted. I liked both Trix and Finn, I think I liked him better than I liked her. I think it's something to do with the fact that her personality wasn't clear enough for me. I got that she loves him, she loved him in the past but there was something missing, like in the first books in the series when the characters didn't feel developed enough and since the plot line wasn't that engaging I just felt it was sadly quite lacking.. 

In the end of the 4th book (Beyond Jealousy) we know Trix is kidnapped to Sector 5 where she used to live and where she came to know Finn in her younger years. Back then she was addicted to the drugs Mac Flemings distributed. Though there was a significant relationship between her and Finn it was tainted by both their addiction so it wasn't clear for the both of them what happened if/when they were both clean. While it was easier for HIM to get clean (he didn't use the addicting kind) it was for her. She ran away from Sector 5 leaving Finn behind to try and free herself from the binding of the drugs. Succeeding and living quite well in Sector 4 she find it hard to leave him behind yet she is afraid of what would happen if/when they meet again. 

They DO meet again when she is brought back to Sector 5. When Finn sees her he also sees black, he can't handle her being there again, he never did move on after her death (she faked an OD). Trying to find his demise in almost every battle he fought. 

Running together from Sector 5 to 4 gave both of them a taste of what they want to keep, question in, can Finn find his place in Sector 4 with her family and will the boss of Sector 5 allow Finn to get away.. 

As I wrote above, This book wasn't engaging enough though Finn was drool worthy indeed (I'm not talking only of the general ragged appearance). He did the best he could while he was in a really bad place so though some people consider him to be a sort of a villain in his heart he isn't or he's trying not to be. It was really nice seeing how he found his place with the O'Kanes.
