Tatiana Stone has worked hard to establish herself as one of Sector Four's most skilled crafters. All she wants is peace--but the sins of her father haunt her. He ruled the sector as a petty tyrant before the O'Kane takeover, and plenty of people harbor bitter memories of his cruelty. Especially now that Tatiana’s beloved baby sister has fallen in with a man who wants to start a revolution.
Zan failed his boss once, and it won't happen again. So when Dallas O'Kane asks him to defuse the rebellion brewing in the sector, he’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done--including seduce Tatiana. It’s the perfect opportunity to get closer to the pretty crafter and complete his mission. But what he discovers is a fiery, passionate woman--and an affair that could destroy them both.
Beyond Possession is a novella (#5.5) in Kit Rocha’s Beyond series. This book takes place shortly after the events of book #5, Beyond Addiction, occur. I am hopelessly addicted to this series and the fantastically kinky world this pair of authors has managed to create. Further, I highly recommend that you read this series in order as all the books flow into one another with overlapping storylines and world building. The raunchy and gritty dystopian world that this pair of authors has created is unmatched in its creativeness and uniqueness. The main focus of this short novella is the hero and heroine themselves, vastly different from the main series with complex and intricate plotlines that encompass so much more than the romance focused on in each book. Although this pair of authors does touch on the political unrest within Sector 4 itself in this addition to the series. Have the sins of the father trickled down to the daughters he left behind?
Tatiana Stone is the daughter of Matthew Stone, the corrupt tyrant who ruled Sector 4 before the Dallas O’Kane took over. Ever since her father died Tatiana has worked hard to carve out a name for herself in the sector often shielding her younger sister from their harsh reality. As a skilled crafter with a thriving business, Tatiana walks a fine line between those that support the O’Kane’s wholeheartedly and those that have yet to succumb to the O’Kane way of life. Neutrality and impartiality is the name of the game for Tatiana. However, with her sister now in love with a man who wants to start a revolution, Tatiana may have to take a stance.
Zan is slowly recovering from the ambush that left him gravely injured and also left him feeling like he failed Dallas O’Kane, something he is determined to never let happen again. When Dallas asks him to get closer to Tatiana in hopes of getting her to commit to their side as they attempt to diffuse the brewing revolution, Zan is all for this project considering he has harbored unspoken feelings for the beautiful crafter for quite some time now. But, Tatiana is not willing to enter into a game of politics, particularly after the destruction her father caused this sector.
This novella was very sweet compared to many of the books in this series. However, this is a Kit Rocha book so you do indeed get the fuck-hot sexy times that we have all come to love and crave in this series. I loved how Zan was determined to win Tatiana over for himself and to show her what a true family was really like. With this being said though, he also understood her need for independence and he was willing wait until Tatiana made up her own mind about whether or not she wanted a future with him. Can Zan and Tatiana find their way to something lasting and heartfelt even in the midst of political turbulence and unrest?
All in all, Beyond Possession was a treat for fans of this series. I loved how we got more insight as to what Sector Four was like prior to the O’Kanes coming into the picture. Every time I pick up a new book in this series I am giddy with anticipation and every time these authors deliver. Every. Single. Time. I loved Zan and Tatiana’s story. Essentially this book left me wanting more of the O’Kanes. Damn, it is going to be an excrutiating wait until the next book makes an appareance. Sigh!
