The sexual tension and relationship dynamics of a young Lex and Dallas were fun, interesting, and of course, scorching hot! ~ Java Girl, Guilty Pleasures
Before they were the King and Queen…
Six years before the Beyond series started, an ambitious bootlegger named Dallas O’Kane caught a very pretty thief named Lex with her hand in his safe.
The rest is very sexy history.
In Beyond Forever, follow Dallas and Lex through the turning points in their relationship, from the night he caught her trying to rob him, through his rise to successful bootlegger, to legend, to Sector Leader–with Lex always there, willing to give him the push he needs.
Beyond Forever is a prequel novella that jumps through time to tell the story of the biggest moments in the formation of the O’Kanes and their King and Queen. It will be far more enjoyable if you’ve already read Beyond Control, and contains spoilers for the entire Beyond series.
Beyond Forever is both a prequel to the Beyond series and a brief catch-up with Lex and Dallas, post-revolution. We get to see both the original opening as well as the re-opening of the infamous Broken Circle, the first meeting of Lex and Dallas, and a glimpse into their current lives. I did enjoy the younger versions of Lex and Dallas. The sexual tension and relationship dynamics between the two are fun, interesting, and of course, scorching hot! The hedonistic lifestyle of the O’Kanes, Dallas’ leadership style, his rise to riches and power all had to start somewhere–Beyond Forever chronicles that story. Right back to the beginning. Lex was a revelation to me. I’ve always known she was intelligent and strong, but her patience, instincts, and business sense were a joy to watch. It’s very clear Dallas O’Kane wouldn’t be who he is without her.
But I have a problem with prequels– they don’t really work for me. They’re a pleasant diversion,and I enjoy reading them, to a certain extent. But without a sense of anticipation or suspense, they leave me feeling disappointed. I know how it ended, and where these characters ended up. I liked Beyond Forever quite a lot, but I need a sense of mystery, and the tension of the unknown I just can’t get from a prequel.
