Publisher's Summary

She thought this was a game. She thought she could walk away.

She thought wrong.

I've lived a cold, unforgiving life. I've seen things, I've done things, that would break a man. If they didn't kill him first.

With my past behind me, I have nothing. No way to atone for my sins and nothing to lift me from the depths of despair I've come from. And no one to give me the control that I so desperately desire.

But as soon as I saw Lilly walk through the halls of Club X, something inside my cold heart flickered. With her large, blue eyes, and her seductive curves, I wanted her. Lilly, my flower. There's a sweet innocence about her that steals the breath from my lungs. She brings my darkness to the surface, and what's more...she craves it just as much as I do.

The danger is what lured her to me. But she didn't realize how intense this would be when she signed that contract.

She thought it was all fantasy and make-believe. But I'm not a knight in shining armor. I'm not a hero from a romance novel. I'm the villain.

And now she wants to leave?

I won't allow it.

I own her. And I'm not letting her go.

Owned is a full-length standalone dark romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.

This book is edgy, and sexy and all the things a good dark romance book should be. I really enjoyed it!

Awesome Listen!!!

This book was so good! This is a standalone listen, yet part of a series. The link to this series is Club X and mention of a certain few characters. Each book spotlights a different set of couples and their story. I love that each book has a happy ending and does not end in a cliffhanger. This book (and series) opened my eyes to various aspects to bdsm. Trust is huge. Lauren Landish and Willow Winters write seamlessly together. They are very talented. The narrators (Douglas Berger and Brooke Hayden) did a great job with this duel narration. I loved getting into the minds of Lilly and Joseph. The narration adds so much more than just reading the book (which I previously did) can deliver on the feelings and emotions, and excitement. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. Highly recommend this book.

Not What I Expected

There was more fight in the heroine than expected. She takes risks throughout. I liked her. The dark but handsome brooding hero as expected kept me in the dark almost until the very end. I did like that I could not guess everything. And no cliffhanger and an HEA. Lilly the heroine would love that.

Female character nearly ruined it for me

First off let me say narrators did well with what they had to work with. Female character is tiresome. Couldn't deal with her back and forth. I would have put her in the cage too. Story was okay. Just fast forwarded through the female parts.

Some funny bloopers...

This one is third in the series and the only one I have written a review. Each could stand alone and all have HEAs so that's a plus. Unless there is something I'm missing, there's no warning that this series is BDSM. Criticism - Heroine is whiny, childish and immature -- doubt that anyone in the mafia would find that attractive but narrator's voice was perfect for her so there's that. LOL Seriously, though, it was hard listening to the heroine throwing tantrums. Male narrator was very good. A few bloopers---for example, scene where Joseph is arguing with his brother in the study. Brother is described as having a "shiny, bald head" and then as he's leaving, he suddenly has dark hair and looks like Joseph.

Brooke Hayden not so great

I loved the narration by Douglas Berger, but Brooke sounded like a 12 yo child the way she enunciated her script.

This story was hot and intense at the same time. The narrators were amazing and they depicted the characters very well. I loved it,

You never know when or where you will find the ONE

When you're trying to find yourself but doing research on a BSDM book you're trying to write. Then you see him you're scared to death till you actually get to play there is just one small secret that you're carrying that could change everything.

HATED IT! Ugh

I absolutely loath this story. I mean loath it. Please past this one by for you own sanity. Why I hate this story. 1. The main character put herself is such a dangerous position. 2. She whined soooo fringing much it simply got on my nerve 3. She was weak weak weak although the author attempted to fool the reader into thinking that she was strong by exhibiting a series of stupid choices. 4. Can you say repeat repeat repeat. The author said many of the same things over and over and over again. Book could have been shorter had cut/paste were avoided. 5. Simply annoying. Move to the next story and spare yourself the annoyance of this little number.
