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 complexthe 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.

My Thoughts

WOW! Just wow! What an intense, sexy read, which is not surprising at all considering who the author is. Tessa Bailey knows exactly what us readers crave in a dominant hero, and Jonah Briggs fits the bill perfectly. He is a whole lot of yummy goodness, and his dirty, beautiful mouth is what I will be dreaming about for days. 


What do you get when you put together a sexy owner of a high-class BDSM club in New York City and a woman determined to hate the very place he calls home? Raw, intense, no-holds-barred chemistry! Two VERY determined people, out to prove the other is wrong. It’s exciting, it’s ridiculously sexy, and it’s a fantastic read!

For a woman who is so judgmental, Journalist Caroline Preston, sure does fall head over heals in lust with Jonah Briggs. He is HOT, he is COCKY, and he is dominant to the core. Jonah is the type of man to make a woman shatter with just a wisp of his breath against your ear, a nibble on your neck, or a slight touch to your lips. The last thing that Caroline would do is submit to any man, but Jonah Briggs might just be the man who can bring her to her knees. Jonah brings out something in Caroline that she never knew she had in her. He makes her feels things that she never thought were possible. He sets her mind free and puts it at ease, and makes everything okay again.

OWNED by FATE takes us on a beautiful erotic journey that blossoms into a LOVE neither of them were expecting, but deep down craved with all of their being. It was a fast paced read that pushed my emotions into overdrive. This is a read that will bring pleasure to your mind, body, and soul. VERY well done Ms. Bailey!

About Tessa Bailey

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
