Beyond Control by Kit Rocha

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Synopsis: 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.

Review: Beyond Control is a great addition to the Beyond series and follows along after where Beyond Shame left off focusing on the very interesting characters of Lex and Dallas. What I really love about this series is that the world building is not secondary to the sexy parts of the book, making this story much more well rounded than many of the romance/erotica novels I have read previously. Lex and Dallas are very complicated people, in my opinion more complicated than Jasper and Noelle, and this makes them and their developing relationship fascinating. They both challenge one another and neither backs down from that challenge but they also really understand and respect one another as well.
I enjoyed having the world expanded even more in this book. During a visit to another sector more is learned about Lex, who she is/was, and why she is the way is giving her more depth and making her an even more interesting character. Sector 2 is different then Sector 4 and it is interesting to watch the power play between leaders and see how the Sectors interact with one another. As with the last book other characters make appearances Ace, Rachel, Six, Jasper, Cruz and Bren all have a chapter or two and I am excited to see where their stories go in the next two books. The sexy scenes in the book are off the charts there is something for everyone in this book.
