Beyond Control: Dallas O’Kane and Alexa Parrino
Expected publication: March 19th 2013
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.
O’Kane for life! If I lived in this dystopian world, I would totally be an O’Kane! (I even ordered my O’Kane logo stickers off of Kit Rochas website. It’s free you should get yours too!) They are hedonistic, loyal, ruthless and sexy as hell! This is only the second book in the series but I’ve been hooked since the first! In the book we get Dallas, the leader of the O’Kanes. He is rough, tough and sexy. He knows what he wants and he always gets what he wants. Lex, has been leading him on a merry chase for years, but his time has finally come. Lex, wants Dallas with every fiber in her being but with Dallas comes strings, control, his… and she doesn’t know if she can give him that.
These two don’t do anything in half measures! They are explosive from beginning to end. The sexual tension between these two in the first book was insane! You knew it would have to come to a head at some point and you knew when it did you would have to watch out for the explosion that would follow and we were not disappointed. This book was HOT HOT HOT!!! One of the most insanely hot books I have ever read. The sex was a big part of that, there are some serious fantasies going on in this one, but the characters are a big part of it too. All of them, each and every O’Kane or other supporting role is just F’n hot and sexy. I’m always going back and forth which O’Kane I want more and damned if I could pick. But the good thing with the O’Kanes id you don’t really have to pick because they share. LOL. Well most of them do, Dallas is a bit more possessive then some of the others. I can tell you this, whatever your kink, this book has a little something for everyone. There is some light BDSM , some M/F, F/F, M/M, M/F/M and there is this one fantasy, I’m not going to give too much away but holy WOW! Whatever your pleasure, this books got it and a few surprises!
Ok so there is a lot of sex, I mean it is erotica and all. But more than that there is an actual story too. This is one of the reasons that I love this series so much. Although, it can be pretty hardcore, Kit Rocha remember that they are supposed to be telling a story too. So this one takes place a month or two after the last one left off. Dallas is searching for the man that shot Lex, he needs his vengeance. Sector Three is in chaos and Dallas is looking to make his move there. But first he has to survive a meeting with all of the other Sector Leaders and that’s always a gamble. With everything else that is going on, Lex makes a move that he has been waiting for and now is his time to MOVE! A challenge was issued and he responds. When his mind should be on the game, it’s on Lex and he makes some missteps with her. Lex and Dallas stay true to their characters, which I am thankful for, because I liked who they were. We also learn more about some of the other O’Kanes. Maddox, Bren and Ace are around a lot in this one and Jasper and Noelle haven’t gone anywhere. So if you didn’t get enough of them in the first book you won’t miss them in this one. One of my issues with the first book was I thought it was missing a bit on the world building. I think that Kit Rocha stepped it up in this book and beefed up the world. I felt like I knew more about the inner working of this world after reading this book. So, I don’t have a single complaint with this book. I will be impatiently waiting for the third book in this series and I hope I don’t have to wait too long.
