A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint... 

Her mind rejects his world. But her body knows its master. Journalist Caroline Preston arrives at Serve, New York City’s hottest BDSM club, with one goal—to hate it. If her brother wasn’t trying to turn the family’s respectable financial magazine into a publication that features “lifestyle” pieces for the wealthy and adventurous, she wouldn’t even be there, trying to write an article about a world she doesn’t understand. But then she sees him. 

Jonah Briggs doesn’t leave his post for just anyone. As the owner of the club, his sole purpose is to ensure that his clientele get everything they need, but when he sees Caroline, his only thought is what he wants—to dominate the sexy little reporter and give the most exquisite pleasure she’s ever experienced. 

Caroline has no intention of entering that particular lion’s den—not with her family’s reputation at stake—no matter how dark, sexy, and complex the lion in question may be. But with every encounter, she craves more, and with every slide of his lips, she realizes Jonah might just be the man to break down all her defenses…if she’ll let him.



When I start reading a new Tessa Bailey book I always have the same reactions ...

Reaction #1 ----> I find out that a new Tessa Bailey book is coming out ...

Reaction #2 ----> I meet Tessa's new heroine and she becomes my new fictional best friend ... lol!!

Reaction #3 ----> I meet Tessa's new dirty talker .... Gahhhhhhh!!!!! *Panties melting*

Reaction #4 ----> Tessa's writing style is deliciously hot and unforgettable! A lot of this is going on while I read her books ... 

Reaction #5 ----> When I read one of her books, my reading escape always ends like this ... 

Tessa Bailey's naughty vault has once again opened. Sweet Pickles!!! What comes out of that naughty vault is always sexy, torrid and memorable!

Owned by Fate, by Tessa Bailey, exceeded of all my expectations! No matter how many times I read her books, I always feel the same emotions every single time! And, I'm not joking around if I tell you that I have read her previous book an embarrassing amount of times. I'm sure the characters are probably whispering '' Her again?!?!'' lol!!! I can't help it!!! I love them to pieces!!!

What do you get when a determined journalist and a sexy dirty talking BDSM club owner meet? An intense and passionate journey where opposites attract, personal boundaries are broken, and sensual cravings are satisfied. When Caroline Preston walks into Serve, the last thing she expected was to meet Jonah Briggs. Every word that comes out of his mouth sets her body on fire and every sensual touch makes her crave more. Will she be able to walk away of club Serve without looking back or will Jonah's promises to fulfill all her fantasies will leave her coming back for more? 

It only took me one chapter to fall in love with Caroline and Jonah. I loved how Caroline reacted to her attraction to Jonah. I don't think that it would have been the same story if she did not fight the attraction that was growing between them. Only somebody like Jonah could make her feel all these different kinds of emotions. These two complete each other to perfection! Jonah knew exactly how to get under her skin and make her step out of her comfort zone. Not only did he awaken her body with unforgettable kisses and his electrifying touch, he also found a way to her heart. He's a dirty talker with a tender and sweet side. Just the way I like them! ;) At at one point of the story my heart twisted and I went into *Swoon attack* mode! God!!! This man would do anything for the woman he loves. 

I have to admit that I haven't read many BDSM related books. The ones that I did read, I really enjoyed. Tessa Bailey did a fantastic job at making me fall in love with Jonah's world. It was intriguing, sexy and eye-opening. He's the perfect Dom in my eyes! He knew that Caroline was hesitant about crossing that line and exploring his world. He gave her quite the first experience! He made her feel things that she had never felt before and it took only one night in his arms to have her coming back for more. He never took things to the extreme and that's what I loved about him. 

Overall, Owned by Fate was everything I wanted it to be and more! The next installment will be Oliver (Caroline's brother) and Eliza's (Caroline's BFF) story. These already have a place in my heart. They had me falling for them in Owned by Fate. I can't freakin' wait to read their story!!! Tessa Bailey's books are the reason I love reading so much! The best way I can explain my love for her books is to compare it to my love for Nutella ... Yup! Let me explain ... If there is one thing that leaves me with a smile on my face and happy every single time it's my slice of bread with Nutella ... lol!! It does not matter what kind of bread I use, the glue to this happy sandwich is Nutella. And, Tessa Bailey is like Nutella. She can change the location and characters in her story, but at the end her incredible talent for making me get lost in the story leaves me happy every single time! So ... yeah ... Two things that make me happy in life ... Nutella & Tessa Bailey! lol!!! I highly recommend Owned by Fate and all of her other books. They are PHENOMENAL!!!


I give, Owned by Fate, by Tessa Bailey 5 scorching, sensual, naughty, all-consuming, red vines stars!

About the Author

Thank you for your interest in my books! I'm Tessa and I live in the crazy, loud, overcrowded borough of Brooklyn, New York. I love it here. This city is a constant source of inspiration, which is why I've decided to set my most recent books in the Line of Duty Series here. 

I moved to New York when I was eighteen, the day after I graduated high school. Threw my suitcase in the back of a Chevrolet Cavalier and drove across the country to find my adventure. I'm still finding it, little by little.
