Erotic Dystopian Romance Review: Beyond Control by Kit Rocha

Beyond Control by Kit Rocha (Beyond #2)

Egalley thanks to Kit Rocha

18+ only

Synopsis from Goodreads
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 have a feeling that if someone who doesn't know this blog looks at the way I rated books this week, they would think I give five stars to all the books I read. *grinning* But honestly, this week is exceptional for very good reads which I can't help but rate very highly.

Take Beyond Control. You might remember that I read Beyond Shame, book #1 in the series, few months ago and absolutely loved it?

Well, book #2 is even better.

I tried to discuss this with a friend on Goodreads and explain why I think so. As far as I can see, Lex and Dallas are much more complex, mature characters with mutual history together, than the previous couple.

Their relationship, their solitary quest for control over themselves and each other continues for 6 years until it reaches its boiling point, and something or someone has got to give.

And let me tell you, when two such strong-willed and powerful characters clash, it's explosive and scorching hot. There was something absolutely mesmerising about Dallas and Lex  exploring the boundaries of their changed partnership, making mistakes and coming to an understanding what their partner really wants.

What adds a lot of spice to the book is its setting. Dallas and Lex live in a dystopian environment of lawless sectors surrounding one of the utopian cities on the planet, Eden. Dallas's gang - O'Kanes, rules Sector Four, and he himself is embroiled in the game of power and violent clashes with other districts. Nothing is simple, Eden is corrupt, and district leaders have to take dealing with its greedy politicians and bribing them in various ways into their consideration.

Beyond Control is also teeming with delicious male and female characters in different stages of development, which makes me hope for many more gorgeous books in this series. 

All in all, this book is wild, dangerous, sweaty, full of underground fights, tattoos, kink, mind games and off the charts hot sex, - and none of it feels silly. Read at your own risk and beware of hot flushes.

Highly recommended.

Я уже говорила несколько месяцев назад как мне понравилась первая книга серии, За Гранью Стыда. Так вот, вторая книга, За Гранью Контроля, по моему мнению вышла ещё лучше.

Дело в том, что в отличие от Джаса и Ноэль, пары из первой книги, Даллас - лидер сектора Четыре и Лекс - его неофициальная партнёрша и советница, знают друг друга уже шесть лет.

 Учитывая насколько они оба волевые, сильные личности и насколько каждый из них зациклен на контроле над собственными чувствами, вот уже 6 лет они играют друг с другом в кошки-мышки и никак не могут решиться на открытые полноценные отношения, пока Лекс не делает первый шаг.

Всё, что случается дальше абсолютно взрывно, красиво, дико, грязно и опасно :) Секс сам по себе прекрасно написан и каждая сцена углубляет наше понимание характеров главных героев. Здесь нет сцен-пустышек, всё прочувствовано и несёт в себе эмоциональное содержание.

Построение дистопичного мира тоже замечательно выписано, и наше понимание различных секторов и как они работают только углубляется во второй части серии. За Гранью Контроля также продолжает сильные вторичные линии сюжета, в которых развивается череда превосходных второстепенных персонажей.

Каждая книга хоть и сосредотачивается на одной паре, однако мы ждём продолжения с большим нетерпением, так как успели узнать и полюбить остальных персонажей в предыдущих книгах. В целом, браво писателям! Очень хочу продолжения. Читать надо если интересуетесь качественными эротическими романами.

Ah, I love the clash of the strong willed characters, can be so much fun and frustrating all wrapped into one. Glad to hear that this doesn't have 2nd book syndrome and is better than 1st.

Brandi, I really recommend this series. Seriously good stuff! ;)

Blodeuedd, I know, but it very much depends on your mood and how good the writer is.

Glad you liked this one, too.
I totally understand what you mean about people just finding your blog, it seems like every book I pick up these days finds its way to my Favorites shelf. Lol(: I almost WANT to find a book I hate. :P

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Believe me, Marissa, you don't. Negative review are very stressful to write. I usually prefer to DNF the book and move on :)))

I love it when you hit a streak of great books and rate them all high! This sounds GREAT! I love a little erotic read everynow and then, as long as the writer is talented.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
