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.

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.

Great read, I loved this book!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Owned to be better than the print version?

I read and listen at the same time. There is such tremendously elevated level of dimension added by having the audio that I cannot imagine and seldom read any book without listening to it. So I am a HUGE advocate of adding more books to Audible.com.

What other book might you compare Owned to and why?

All the books in this "Highest Bidder" series are comparable and I love them all. Each has a unique twist in one way or another that brings a different flavor to it.

Which character – as performed by Douglas Berger and Brooke Hayden – was your favorite?

Joseph was my favorite character; a completely unique individual who ends up in a loving relationship, despite having survived horrendously grotesque life events early on.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Why would anyone go the movies when they can stay home with audio books???
