Summary on 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.


Guess I'm the only one out of us four that was really blown away by this book. Since they were introduced, Dallas and Lex became a fascinating duo for me. The most feared but respected leader of Sector Four, a chaotic gang place; and Lex Parrino, the bad-ass, fierce queen that looks after everyone and learned how to keep the gang together and running, a sort of mother hen.

Together they held a good order in the Sector, but their personal relationship was always wild, delicate and full of danger. A woman who couldn't bring herself to let go of the tight control she has over herself. She was very tempting for a very dominating man as a true leader should be, such as Dallas. But..
"Control. Oh how she’d hungered to let go for a while, to have Dallas hold it all, but the way he spoke proved he didn’t know. Maybe not how much, or maybe not at all."
They developed very strong feelings for each other but never dared to give in. It was a play of dominance and submission and for Lex and Dallas it was the most important one. Their situation was so interesting to me. Yes, I know - there was too much sex in this book, I didn't like that, but I loved this book mainly because of those two. A clash of such strong personalities - it got me high. I think that Dallas was the most interesting one - all his life he fought to keep control and have the right decisions, he was so careful that he was afraid that his love for Lex will make him weak. But it actually made him stronger. Together they were stronger. When they slowly, tip-toeing, managed to get close, I just... It was amazing!
"I can't do this without you. I can't be Dallas without Lex...I've always loved you." A shudder worked through him, and he pulled her closer. "I've always wanted you. They don't have a word for how much I need you. Everything good I am, everything good I've ever done...it's all you. You make me a king. Without you, I'm just another psychotic thug."
And yeah, there were a lot of issues that came up through the book, but I expected that with these too. It's never easy for them.

5/5 stars !!!



Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex everywhere.
Sex on the floor. Sex on the table. Sex against the wall.
Sex in the shower. Sex in front of everyone. Sex with everyone.

That pretty much sums up the plot of this book. What's weird is that I actually liked more those rare parts of the book where they actually talked and where we found out more about the politics of the Sectors and their leaders. Don't get me wrong, the sex scenes were hot, a bit over-exaggerated, but hot no matter, BUT after the first half of the book I was like: dude, not again!-.- Dallas and Lex were one of my favorite characters in the 1st book, so I was looking forward to reading this book, and I thought that it would definitely be better than Noelle's and Jas' story, but in the end all the cheesy lines, sex all over the place, Lex showing more of her submissive side and Dallas being overpossessive jackass kind of ruined it for me. IMO the author should focus more on developing the story in the next book and reduce the sex scenes, because no matter how hot they are, after awhile they get boring. My favorite characters in this one were Bren & Six, their book is next and I hope the it won't disappoint.

3/5 stars !!!


This book was really good, but...also a little predictable and similar to Noelle´s story, maybe a bit cheesy, but very fun and worthwhile. I honestly had fun reading Beyond Control, but I can't wait for Ace´s book. He´s my favorite guy in this series.

4/5 stars!!!
