Owned by Fate and Exposed by Fate by Tessa Bailey
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 realises Jonah might just be the man to break down all her defenses ... if she'll let him.
Caroline only intends to check out Serve for the new merger that her brother proposed, she didn't count on actually finding the club, or Jonah, a turn on. She keeps going back to Jonah, and she questions herself every time she does. But she has a family name to keep up, and to do so she can't possibly write the club in a good light - can she? But not doing so could lose her Jonah and her new found sexualconfidence.
Jonah is very dominant and a massive turn on - very well written. And Caroline comes across exactly as she should, a bit stuck up and looking down her nose at the BDSM scene without knowing about it ... until she gets drawn in and realises it's just what she needs.
I really enjoyed the opening for this new series and am looking forward to more from all authors.
Amazon UK: Owned By Fate
When interior designer Eliza Ballas accompanies a friend to New York's premier BDSM club, she's taken aback by the sheer want that overruns her body — especially when a sexy Brit assumes Eliza is adept at dark, sensual arts. If she's going to play, she'll need an erotic education, and she knows just the man to teach her how to submit ...
Oliver Preston isn't one to turn down pleasure, but Eliza's his sister's best friend, and he's torn between a sense of duty and his rock-hard need to find out if she tastes as delicious as he's dreamed. Unable to handle the thought of another man owning her body, he draws Eliza deep into his world of exquisite pain and pleasure. He has three lessons to instruct her. Three lessons to drive them both to the brink of ecstasy. And three lessons before he must give her to another man ... if he doesn't lose himself first.
Eliza may be in too deep when she goes to Serve and pretends to know more than she does, not wanting to come across as an amateur. She doesn't expect Oliver to offer to teach her the ropes before she hooks up with a stranger. Neither of them expect to like the lessons so much that they don't want them to end.
Holy. Fricking. Hotness. Batman!! This sequel to Owned by Fate is so much ... more ... than the first. As hot and dominant and ... hot that Jonah was, Oliver is that much hotter, that much more dominant and so much sex that I wanted to crawl right in my Kindle with him and make him all mine. Eliza is sweet and naive to begin with but she soon finds confidence in her sexuality and, as much as it shocks her, finds what has been missing from her life - I would have been more than happy to also make her mine.
This is the 2nd, and last for a while at least, from Tessa Bailey. And I'm looking forward to the next installment from Katee Robert.
