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.

    I've read "Beyond Control" for a while now but to wri


    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.

    This one started out slow for me but got going hot and heavy tow

    This one started out slow for me but got going hot and heavy toward the end. This one was a scorcher!

    This Dystopian Erotica continues as boundaries are expanded and hard limits tested. We get to see Dallas and Lex in all their glory.

    In the first book we get to see that Lex has a soft spot for victimized women and helping others. She can't seem to stop herself from reaching out to help the underdog. Will she get herself in over her head?

    She and the King of sector four, Dallas, have a non-committed relationship and both are craving more. Will moving to the next level bring them closer or tear them apart?

    The writing duo that is Kit Rocha can write a scorching hot fantasy scene. I found the character development to be amazing. We gather insight into the minds of both Dallas and Lex. We also get to see the minds of several other side characters who I am sure we will see in the spotlight soon.

    There was a lot of political back-story in this one. At times I found it tedious but I know the authors are setting up the future books. I think I am the only one who found it tedious but even so it was still a four star book for me. Great job!

    Looking forward to the next books!

    I love this series! If this is the life of dystopia then yum and I'm moving in. The story of Alex and the King of Sector 4 isn't your happy ever after. However, their story is still amazing and hot. Lex and Dallas are crazy for each other and they make each other crazy. Dallas has to be in control. Any signs of weakness will put him and all of the people he must protect in danger. The problem is he has a weakness and she is named Alexa and she is under no-ones control. That is until she gives into her greatest desire, belonging to Dallas. Can she trust him enough to give him all the control? Can he put her needs before his own need for power?




    This book was just as amazing as the first. Waiting for the next is going to drive me crazy.








    Thank you to Kit Rocha and NetGalley for allowing me to read.

    BEYOND CONTROL is too hot for words! Sizzling, sensual, singe-your-eyebrows-hot doesn’t cover it. Read it for its worldbuilding, read it for its great characters, read it for its stellar writing. Whatever you do, just READ IT! You don’t be disappointed. ~ Under the Covers

    Oh Dallas! Dallas, Dallas, Dallas, you dirty boy! *looks around* Oh, sorry! Got a little distracted there. That’s what the kingpin, Dallas O’Kane does to me. If you haven’t read the Beyond series by Kit Rocha, you are SERIOUSLY missing out on some of the hottest men on the planet! A friend of mine called this book a “buffet of bad boys” and that is exactly what Dallas, Jas, Ace, Mad, Bren and Cruz are. Think the ultimate bad boys – all tatt’d up with brawn and brains. And the most important thing? Their willingness to do anything and everything and of course, their stamina

    I read this book for many, many reasons. The first thing that caught my eye was the cover. Beautiful in its simplicity, the cover stands out amongst a sea of others. Both sensual and erotic, it aptly describes the series without any words, painting a picture that helps me as a reader bring the world and its characters to life.

    The second thing is the writer. Kit Rocha is the other pen name of kickass writing duo of Moira Rogers. I’ve enjoyed many of their other books but this series has to be my favorite of theirs. I will admit that I was hesitant about the dystopian aspect of the series just because it isn’t my favorite genre to read. However, I took a leap and wow, did it pay off! I absolutely fell in love with the world that Rocha had introduced in the first book, BEYOND SHAME. Furthermore, I felt like this book added onto that, creating more and more layers to an intricate world. That’s all Rocha and their writing skill.

    The authorial voice is strong and poignant, capturing my attention from the very first page until the very end. I read this book in half a day and was pining for more afterwards.

    What sets this series apart from other works by these two authors is the focus on the sex. Sometimes, when you think erotica, you think sex, sex, sex. This series has plenty of sex to go around, you can bet on that, but Rocha manages to infuse the sex scenes with vulnerability, trust, total devotion and love. That alone is tough to do between a hero and a heroine, but Rocha manages to do it while involving other characters as well.

    As I mentioned before, there’s plenty of no-holds-barred sex. The six-way is ample proof of that but through it all, Rocha is able to make it also about Dallas and Lex and their connection. Dallas’ need for control is their greatest obstacle and taming Lex is both a challenge and a game. Amongst the warm bodies and the hotter-than-hell sex, it’s still really all about Dallas and Lex. I’m impressed that any author can accomplish that amongst sex that could incinerate you on the spot.

    I’ve been looking for a new erotic romance author like Lorelei James and Cherise Sinclair. Kit Rocha has made that short list.

    BEYOND CONTROL is too hot for words! Sizzling, sensual, singe-your-eyebrows-hot doesn’t cover it. Read it for its worldbuilding, read it for its great characters, read it for its stellar writing. Whatever you do, just READ IT! You don’t be disappointed.

    P.S. I AM CLAIMING DALLAS O’KANE FOR MY HAREM! Better yet, I’m claiming Jas, Ace, Mad, Bren and Cruz too!!

    OMG, where do I start? This book was so awesome. I loved it. It still pushed the sexual envelope for me a little bit, but since I had Beyond Shame under my bed I expected it and I think I dealt a bit better. But I LOVED Dallas from book 1, so my crush continued...deepened. I always have loved kickass females, and like in book 1, Lex didn't disappoint here. Neither did Dallas O'Kane. This book was everything I had expected of them both-and more. This story, this world, it's so fascinating. These books are a definitely can't-put-downs. I can't WAIT for book 3. I love Bren and Six, and I wish their book came out tomorrow.

    4.5 stars...Sex, Politics, Kink, and Power reign in Sector Four

    4.5 stars...Sex, Politics, Kink, and Power reign in Sector Four

    Beyond Control is Kit Rocha's second `Beyond' book, which left me with a positively languorous feeling. In this wickedly erotic dystopian romance book, Dallas, the leader/King of Sector Four, and Lex battle each others will, and surrendering each other's heart, body, and soul proves a stimulating and agonizing mission to the coup de grace. It's "All or Nothing," with a lot going on in-between.

    This Beyond book covers more territory - sectors, leaders, Lex's past, and secondary characters - as Eden takes a backseat. Within the sectors, leaders do not strive to create ideal little worlds, they rule personal empires or fiefdoms. They strive to survive, enforce, prosper, and gain and/or maintain their power. With Lex by his side, Dallas has made his sector prosperous, but their partnership is volatile. Their needs are complex, demanding. At first, their obstacle wasn't as obvious to me as Beyond Shame's heroine Noelle. (Noelle craved sexual freedom and discarded Eden's ingrained sense of shame, which made for many stimulating encounters with O'Kane members.) In this story, Lex and Dallas endure a prolonged sexual, emotional and political power struggle with internal and external forces. It's an engaging process, for sure!

    Kit Rocha's writing is a smooth and luscious ride! My face is firmly pressed against the window and I'm ready for the next journey! Is this book love or lust? Does it matter? I think not. I definitely recommend Beyond Control to erotic romance fans. The writing, characterization, and plot show expert skill. Be aware that `anything goes' in Sector Four, Ace's chair, the stage, the dance floor, the Cage, etc... Now for the long wait until the next book! Beyond Pain will feature two characters I've been fascinated with since book one - Bren and Six! Bring it on, Team Rocha!
