„A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
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 complex the 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.“

Style of Writing
Tessa Bailey’s style of writing is the best I’ve come across for a while! Often enough I’m quite picky when it comes down to that aspect, but the way she’s written this book was simply amazing. I couldn’t put the book away after I started and I really loved how you got to know the feelings and emotions of both, Caroline and Jonah, because of the alternating view. And though the dirty-talk sure as hell was hot, there’ve been so many more feelings and emotions in this story which were so well-worded I was crying at some stage.
Caroline, who doesn’t want to get in touch with the BDSM-Scene because her reputation is at stake, is quite a stubborn person. Sometimes I think, I wouldn’t have acted the way she did, but maybe as an ambitious journalist you think that way, who knows? Her behavior, though, often enough drove me nuts, but I guess, that was at least one aspect which made the story as thrilling as it was.
Jonah… Will you marry me, please?? He’s the hottest guy ever! He’s a superhot, good-looking, dirty-talking Dom. But besides his preference for BDSM, he also is sensitive and caring, which makes him even more adorable. I simply loved him!
Owned by Fate has been the best book for a while! I was feeling with the characters during the whole story, I was laughing as well as crying with them. Due to the beautiful style of writing the book has been easy to read and even though it wasn’t too long with its 228 pages, it lacked for nothing.
Even if you’re a bit unsure about the BDSM part which isn’t too dominant in the book (haha!), you should start reading NOW! This story is way better than Fifty Shades of Grey. Good news is, that there will be a second book from the point of view of Caroline’s best friend and her brother which will be published on October, 27th! So if you can’t get enough of Tessa Bailey, do not hyperventilate when you’ve finished Owned by Fate, there is more to come soon :-)!
