5 Stars for Beyond Solitude by Kit Rocha
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.
Beyond Solitude will release in ebook and print on May 1st. ($2.99 digital, print price TBA.) But we've joined together with eight other authors to create the ALPHAS AFTER DARK anthology. All nine novellas in this collection are never-before-published entries into some of our favorite series, and we're offering the entire set for $0.99 during the month of April. It's a great chance for readers to meet some new authors--and for us authors to meet each others' readers. :)
What I thought about Beyond Solitude
Just when I thought I couldn't love this world created by Donna and Bree, the ladies of Kit Rocha, they write this little novella that give us a sweet love story and some new locations in Sector 4. I really loved this story. It had romance, it had action, it had a hot couple, and Dallas and Lex, too!
Mia is trying to make her own way, and with Lex's guidance, she does a good job of it. I loved that she was not totally confident about everything too. She struggled a little bit with her new found freedom, but she had resolve.
Derek Ford is a gruff guy, recovering from a serious accident. Even though he's smitten with Mia, he doesn't quite know how to handle her. He gets it right, especially when he's got her on his bike, but he ends up messing up. The question is whether he can find a way to make it right by Mia.
Dallas and Lex make a few appearances, and they made me want to go back and read Beyond Control all over again. I loved Dallas talking to Ford and "explaining" things to him. That was probably one of my favorite scenes.
A must for fans of the series!
