NOVELLA REVIEW: Beyond Solitude (Beyond #4.5)


When a motorcycle accident leaves Derek Ford riding a desk at the O’Kane compound, the last thing he needs is a sexy new assistant upending his office and his life. But Mia isn’t scared of her domineering boss. The friction between them generates an undeniable heat—but Mia will not be kept, and Ford will do anything to protect what’s his. 
A few notes:
Unlike Beyond Temptation, this story stands separate from the main series plotline, with a tight focus on the hero and heroine as they travel through some parts of the Sectors we don’t usually get to show.

I loved the story of Ford and Mia. I loved that Ford was gruff and scowl-y but has soft spots for the people he cares about (although, he is one stubborn ass man). Mia went on a huge journey in this book, and I loved reading about the strength she finds living in Sector Four after living in Sector Two her whole life and being trained to do… what they do in Two. This novella is chock full of O’Kanes and I know the wait until the fall for Beyond Addiction is going to hurt like a mother fucker. Amazing novella. Kit Rocha does it again, people. 5 stars.
Favorite Quotes 
“A woman only had to be seen with him once to be safe throughout the sector, and that was seductive in dangerous ways. Power was attractive for a reason. You could curl up close to it and bask in security, in the warmth and safety… Until it went wrong. And then no one could help you. No one dared.”
“Strength. Tenderness. Holding her close without holding her down. That was the promise of Dallas O’Kane, of all the O’Kanes.”
“… because squeezing every possible drop of joy out of every spare moment seemed to be what the O’Kanes were all about.”
