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.

A “prequel” novella done right
I’m a huge fan of the Broken Circle books, so it was really fun to return to Sector Four and revisit Dallas & Lex. This novella builds on Beyond Control, and should definitely be read only after reading the main book. In fact, this story starts after the complete Beyond series ends, with the main story exploring the start of their relationship told as a flashback. It’s lovely to see the beginning of Lex and Dallas’s relationship, and the rise of the O’Kane empire. In addition to exploring the back story of the King and Queen, several favorites make appearances here, including Nessa, Ace, Rachel, Amara and more. I think my favorite part was seeing how “young” Dallas and Lex both are and how much they grow throughout the course of this story. Despite being short, it feels like you really see the development of the two. Definitely loves up to the quality story telling and character development I’ve come to expect from Kit Rocha.
Before the Reign 👑
Beyond Forever was amazing! It was awesome to see the story from the very beginning. Dallas has always made sure to take care of what was his. Becoming the King was inevitable. Finding out how Lex came into the fold and helped form the family was brilliant. These two have always had Powerful Chemistry! You will love Beyond Forever! Reading the Beyond Series is recommended. #OKanesforLife💋
How Lex helped define Dallas's vision for Sector Four
Beyond Forever is the story I feel I’ve been waiting for, as it provides incredible insight into the amazing relationship between Lex and Dallas. It’s a great story and helps tie up and connect all the Lex-Dallas relationship bits and bobs sprinkled throughout the other Beyond stories. Having said that, this is not a story that you’ll truly appreciate unless you’ve read the other Beyond books first. Without those, you lose the depth and breadth of the Lex-Dallas story. But if you’ve read the other books, this one will seem like the perfect story binding them all together.
I had no appreciation for how long it took for Lex and Dallas to become a team, and I certainly didn’t realize that Lex was the real architect of the Sector Four family vibe. She fought long and hard to become Dallas’s partner and equal, as she fought for recognition and parity for all women of Sector Four who were instrumental in forming the Kane community. She is a much bigger part of the Sector Four personality than I had imagined.
Like all the Beyond books, this is sexy story, filled with raw passion and emotions. And like the other books, there were many surprises sprinkled into a well-written story with well-developed characters. I totally enjoyed this book!
