Being this bad has never felt so good.
Owned wasn't at all what I expected. A bdsm read with mafia connections. I enjoyed it, it was exciting and the flow of the whole plot was good.
Lilly comes across as sweet, with a caring nature she helps troubled children in her job. Lilly becomes a frequent visitor of Club X, a sex club, she is more curious about what goes on in club X than a partaker, stating that it's research for a book she is writing, an odd combination with her children's work but I went with it.
Joseph is ex mafia trying to break away from the family ties he wants out, he goes to club X. I suppose to forget. to let go, the men wear masks so he can be anyone he wants to be.
When Joseph first see's Lilly he intrigued by her innocence and is drawn to her.
A relationship develops as Master and submissive, not at the club though he propositions her to live in his home for a month.
I loved the Mafia spin on Owned, I'm glad it wasn't just bdsm content and that there was elements of danger when Josephs brother comes to seek revenge for him leaving the family.
A good mixture in the plot giving it the excitement needed to keep you turning the pages.
Owned is told in dual pov's and leads to a hea

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.
