Overview

Book Two in the bestselling, award-winning BEYOND series.

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.

Beyond Control is everything it promised to be! In the reviews for Beyond Shame, words like "naughty" were tossed around and, after reading books like the Vampire Queen series from Joey W. Hill, the first story in this series didn't quite hit the "naughty" bar for me.  That said, Beyond Shame was everything I wanted from the first book and more. The intense emotions, the unapologetic violence, the deepening plot, and most of all, the fulfilling of that promise of dominating, hedonistic, voyeuristic menage.  It's Sons of Anarchy in a dystopian future, except the women are part of the gang and the money comes from top notch whiskey rather than running guns... with way more sex and way less inhibitions.  Dallas O'Kane is the king of sector Four and Lex is his is queen. Dallas and Lex are outright explosive- emotionally, physically, and sexually- and their plot arc isn't marred by any clumsy, contrived drama or unnecessary filler events. Everything that happens has a reason and furthers the overarching storyline, and does so with signature O'Kane flair. I loved getting to see Dallas and Lex just be together for a chunk of the book, getting my fill of seeing them both unrestrained, souls bared without excessive unnecessary buildup. If you've read the first book in this series you already know how they smolder, and the building up of sexual and emotional tension between other characters in the gang was both satisfying and, in one case, shockingly appealing (shocking as in "I totally didn't see that coming and should have!" Love it when that happens!). One of the things I enjoy most about this series is how little regard the characters have for race or gender, focusing instead on the pleasure they'll all receive... no macho hetero stereotyping to ruin the moments. Ow ow!   If you love strong women and the alpha males who keep them fighting and coming back for more, who see their ladies as more than just playthings and allow them into their hearts and souls...  If you love violence for all the right reasons and vigilante law in a society scraping to survive... If you love seeing characters throw propriety out the window and just DO and BE and FEEL... YOU. MUST. READ. THIS. SERIES!!  Start with Beyond Shame and stick with it even if you think it's a little tame.  Or, if it completely shames you and you hate that you love it, you're going to be even more shocked and awed by the downright barbarian hedonistic feel of Beyond Control.  I SO cannot wait for the next one!

Beyond Control is the second book of the Beyond series by Kit Rocha. This is a very unique and dark story. This story builds a post apocalyptic society, and the main setting is takes place in Dallas’s sector four. I fell in love with the story in book one with the story of Jasper and Noelle, and found myself taken away in this dark and ruthless world that continues straight through this second book and follow up of Lexie and Dallas story. Both characters had front line roles in both stories, so I had been eagerly anticipating this second book. I had mentioned in the review for Beyond Shame that sexual content of this novel could be a bit intense. After finishing Beyond Control that book did not hold a candle to the intensity of this novel. Honestly, I felt it was a little over the top for my liking. I still relished in the continued storyline for Dallas and his sector, but I just felt out of my element when it came to the sexual encounters of the book. I would suggest this to readers with a very broad sexual interest. It is not for the light hearted. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer JO~

Jeez, this series just keeps getting hotter and hotter..... What we'll be like come book 4 is anyones guess!!! Cold shower anyone?!?! I stayed up most of the night to finish the book, I just didn't want to put it down!!! I'm gonna keep this review to mainly my thoughts & feelings on the story and don't want to give away any spoilers! Following on pretty much from where Beyond Shame ended, Beyond Control is Lex & Dallas's story. Will they ever get it together? Dallas wants her complete submission but, even though she seems to want more from him, Lex can't let herself go as much as her needs her to!! I am a HUGE Jas fan but in BC Dallas really hooked me & reeled me in... He's a total alpha male, smokin' hot and domineering, the man's got control issues... Lex is a fantastic character - strong, brave, sassy, intelligent and sexy as all get out. What a combination!! The gang are all back - including Jas & Noelle, Ace, Rachel, Bren and Mad - all still getting it on in their own inimitable style. We meet a couple of potential new O'Kanes - and we catch up with Six and find out how she's adapting to life away from Sector 3. A lot of the story takes place outside of Sector 4 and this is where the tension and violence really get going. We meet the other Sector leaders and find out a bit about them - how they run their sectors, their business and just how power hungry they are. We also find out just how political being in charge of the sectors can be and how duplicitous the sector leaders are behind all that front. Tension, passion, heat, lust, laughs, trust issues and violence are all included in spades. As you would expect from the KR girls the sex is hot, sweaty and down right dirty, with a bit of BDSM to boot - wait 'til you get to the party of six!!!!! ** over-heating **..... It's everything you'd expect from a Kit Rocha 'Beyond' book!!!! Towards the end of Beyond Shame I was in tears when Jas tried to send Noelle away for her own good - well hell, Beyond Control had me breaking out the tissues again .... I tell you, at one point I was just a teary mess - who'd have thought it!! There are some unforgettable scenes in BC - one in particular made me cheer, while another had me needing to put the kindle down as I really needed a breather & to pull myself together!! At points I wanted to slap and/or scream at both Alexa & Declan while at others I wanted to grab Lex and give her a hug!! Emotional hijacking at it's best!!! The girls really smashed my expectations with Beyond Control, it's a fantastic book and I can't wait for Beyond Pain (which I'm thinking could be Bren & Six's story!!). Bree & Donna keep up the good work, you gals are AWESOME!!! Thanks to Kit Rocha for an ARC of Beyond Control - which I received in exchange for an honest review.

This is one of the freshest aproaches to a post apocalyptic world I have ever read. Beyon Control is my favorite book of the Beyond series as of this time. The characters are bold and beleivable in their setting. Their struggles make for a sympathetic read and keep your interest going. You just can't wait to see what happens next in their relationship.

In ways, this series makes me think of an adult (and I mean very adult) version of the Hunger Games series. It's very dark and very erotic. The sex may have been over the top for some people, but I found it was just right.  It's not just sex, though. The characters are very solid. Once you start you'll want to keep reading.

I've read "Beyond Control" for a while now but to write a review and resume all that entails Sector 4, Dallas and Lex, is a task, which I found out every time I tried to write the review and gave up, very hard. This book is a magnificent book, I loved "Beyond Shame" but now the stakes are higher and to write Dallas and Lex's story and all the changes around such a dark apocalyptic world, I imagine it shouldn't be easy. They are two complicated characters, with an infinite depth and past, always trying to outrun each others will, trying to find a way to love each other, such a rocky road full of cliffs, and showing strength as an united front. As a whole, the book is fluid, with a proper speech from each character, and even when we should be shocked, the author finds a way to make us want more and out shock us from the harsh sexual words that fill the pages. There is no gap, no faults, nothing, everything is perfect and between the dark surroundings, the air charged with violence, the O'Kane sex feasts, and the larger than life passion that Dallas and Lex share, a rare jewel I'll tell you. Dallas is an alpha of the future, dark, dangerous, and irresistible. A leader that never back's down, fights for his people and showing signs kindness hidden in the depths of his soul. The love that he feels for Lex is enormous, the possessive links that they share are tightly weaved within the story, the fact that he will take it to the limit only with Lex shows the reader what kind of man he is. Lex, such a brave woman, a lonely soul that achieved to re-invent herself out of the ashes and turned herself into a leader to fly up to higher grounds. She is brave enough to face Dallas and fight for his love and his possession, his heart and all the troubles that come with it. Will she be able to be a partner and a leader in the remaining sectors and will she tame an untenable spirit ?   Overall, this is a book to not be missed, a passion larger than life, a dark world to walk upon your imagination and a great author that only get's better and better.
