Book Description:

She refuses to be owned.

Alexa Parrino escaped a life of servitude and survived danger on the streets to become one of the most trusted, influential people in Sector Four, where the O’Kanes rule with a hedonistic but iron fist. Lex has been at the top for years, and there’s almost nothing she wouldn’t do for the gang…and for its leader. Lie, steal, kill—but she bows to no one, not even Dallas O’Kane.

He’ll settle for nothing less.

Dallas fought long and hard to carve a slice of order out of the chaos of the sectors. Dangers both large and small threaten his people, but it’s nothing he can’t handle. His liquor business is flourishing, and new opportunities fuel his ambition. Lex could help him expand his empire, something he wants almost as much as he wants her. And no one says no to the king of Sector Four.

Falling into bed is easy, but their sexual games are anything but casual. Attraction quickly turns to obsession, and their careful dance of heady dominance and sweet submission uncovers a need so deep, so strong, it could crush them both.

My Thoughts:

Beyond Control, book 2 in Kit Rocha’s Beyond Series is great addition to the first book. I am not sure if I can write a long review but as far as I am concerned I would recommend this book to every fan of dystopian and futuristic erotic romance. 

I was expecting Dallas and Lex’s story to be intense, but just not how much. It completely sucked me in. I really admire Kit Rocha to being able to imagine a world of such mixture of power, strength and pain brought together in both emotional and physical ground. Only a great author can play with such a bag of words and bring out something intensely excellent. 

Have you read Beyond Shame, I do not think you will need much coaxing on getting started on this book. In my review of book one, I have written that reading Kit Rocha’s world “you find yourself more and more enraptured with this book and its characters, hoping and wanting them all to come out of the pages to tell the story. But we all know that’s just possible in the bulk of only one novel.” That stands absolutely true for Beyond Control, too. Even though the authors base the book around a certain couple, you get a fair insight into some of the other characters that will catch your attention and not let go. It is the case with me. I cannot wait to get my hands on the book three, and I know there months to go until that one releases. 

What can I say about Dallas and Lex? Even though the story revolves mainly around them, they are there as if to prepare the reader for the next book, but that does not make them any less important. They are a complicated pair of people who I have fallen in love with from the beginning of the series. They are just perfect for each other, with their ups and downs, their complicated histories and their own temper to trick their judgments and almost send even the smallest step forward a hundred steps backwards. What I loved the most about them that even when their focuses were on other people, they still found a way to be glued to each other in ways that nothing and no one can suspect them belonging together. And that is a part of any romance book that will keep you up all night until you have unraveled all of its secrets. Even though Dallas and Lex had a lot of problems communicating with each other, emotionally, I had faith in them and they proved their passionate dialogues and intense episodes worth the wait. 

At a first look, the title, Beyond Control, may bring only associations of sexy times, but what I love with this book and these characters is that a lot of emotional control had to be set free. Without it, there is no real hope in the world to find that intense feeling you can find maybe once in a lifetime. If you’re lucky. That’s why I am grateful to have had a chance to read this book. The book contains intensely graphic language, and lots of it, but you never get a feeling that is all the book is about. Every situation, every power play, every political change and propaganda, other characters’ lives, only induces this book with more character of its own.
