Owned is book 1 in the decadence after dark series and that couldn’t describe this book better – pure decadence best enjoyed after dark. This book wasn’t what I was expecting but I wasn’t disappointed – insanely hot and definitely a dark erotic romance this isn’t one for the light-hearted.
Ellie Stevens has worked at Expo for a couple of years now slowly moving her way up the ranks. Having never been able to afford to go to college she’s been saving her whole life to fulfil her dreams, see the world and get herself a better education. For the last year she’s been lusting after their biggest client, Kayne Roberts. Drop dead gorgeous and intriguing as hell she’s always admired him from afar. But when he comes in for a meeting her lust gets the better of her and she can’t resist flirting with him over the mini cupcakes.
Arranging to see each other at a work party Ellie can’t believe she’s finally got the chance to be with the man whose occupied her dreams incessantly. But will the reality of being with him match her fantasies?
Kayne isn’t exactly what he appears to be. Turning up to Expo’s party he’s anxious to see Ellie after admiring her for a long time. Having never thought he could be with her he’s stayed away but after she practically offers herself to him he just can’t resist. When the two finally meet they don’t plan to stay for long but when an acquaintance of Kayne’s drops by and sees Ellie, the plan drastically changes.
In a bid to protect Ellie Kayne does the only thing he can think of – claims her. Kidnapping her and locking her away in his mansion he goes to desperate lengths to make her his and keep her safe.
Ellie meanwhile has no clue what’s going on, waking up in a strange place, held against her will with Kayne telling her she’s now his to control – that she’s his new pet.
Weeks pass and Ellie learns what being Kayne’s truly means – an idea that doesn’t seem as bad as it did originally. But something is going on with Kayne, she’s already learnt one of his secrets but what else is he hiding? And will she be able to forgive him when she finds out?
Owned was not what I was expecting – I was thinking girl meets guy, guy is a Dom, and he introduces her to his world. But oh how wrong I was. Full of twists and turns this book is much more than you think. Yes the first 60% has some pretty intense erotic scenes between Ellie and Kayne which some people may find difficult to read but it’s in the last 40% of the book you get the idea that everything isn’t as it seems.
Dangerously hot and darkly intense Owned is a shocking and erotic read you’ll enjoy best after dark. The dual POVs really help to develop the story and you’ll be screaming in frustration for more than one reason. The chemistry between the two character makes for a great read and it sure does end with a bang! Bring on Book 2!
