This time, all bets are off... 

Penelope Carson loves to steal clients from Will Reaver. Yet something in her business nemesis's icy blue eyes makes Penelope...nervous. It certainly doesn't help that the man is the living embodiment of a Norse god. A controlled, powerful Norse god. Which she really should have remembered before she made a bet with him—because losing means becoming Will's personal submissive for a week. 

There's nothing Will would like more than to have Penelope kneeling before him in complicit submission, her fiery dark eyes inviting him in. Challenging him. But their bet takes Will and Penelope deeper than either of them have ever been. Where control is an illusion, and boundaries are pushed aside. And where hearts become the stakes in a game that neither Dominant nor submissive can win...

If you follow my reviews on the blog or know me personally, it won't come as a surprise to you that I love the Brazen collection from Entangled. It's a decadent reading escape every single time! These stories are written with such passion and they always deliver on the HEA that I want for the characters.

Betting on Fate is the fourth installment in the Serve Series and can be read as a standalone. The previous books in this series (Owned by Fate & Exposed by Fate written by Tessa Bailey, and Mistaken by Fate by Katee Robert) are all pretty steamy and captivating.  I highly recommend them! 

In Betting on Fate, we follow Penelope Carson and Will Reaver. These two are fierce competitors when it comes to business. The chemistry that has been building between them from the moment they met explodes when Penelope loses a bet. She has to become Will's submissive for a week. As days go by, Will and Penelope share moments of passion that will turn their world upside down. Are they ready to lose control and give into their feelings?

I really liked Penelope and Will from the first time I met them in Mistaken by Fate. Penelope only has a brief scene in the book, but she stole the show! I knew that the moment she and Will would end up in the same room, it would be charged with sexual tension. They are both intense characters that know exactly what they want, and they are not afraid to go after it! I am not a big reader of BDSM romance, but the Serve Series is a series that I absolutely loved! Well written stories with strong characters, steamy scenes and filled with romance.

The connection between Penelope and Will was strong. They both dominate in and out of the bedroom and when these two get together ?!?!?! Whoaaaa!!! Their chemistry set my kindle on fire! Katee Robert wrote some pretty scorching scenes. *Fans Self* Out of all the books in this series, Betting on Fate, is the book where we can explore more in detail the world that hides behind the doors of Club Serve. Will was in a constant battle to not lose control. He wanted to dominate every aspect of his life and giving into his feelings was making him run in the other direction and far away from Penelope. Penelope was such a strong heroine. Even if Will turned her world upside down, she never lost control of who she was and she wasn't afraid to express how she felt. 

I have no clue if Sara, Garrett and Will's sister, will get her own story. I really hope so! I love her to pieces and I hope we haven't seen the last of Club Serve!


I give, Betting on Fate, by Katee Robert 4 panty-melting, kinky, hot, page-turning stars!

About the Author

Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back. 

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published. 

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people? 

She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
