Publisher's Summary

A terrible accident left physical therapist Layla Matthews with no memory of her freshman year of college in Pittsburgh. Almost 10 years later, she returns to the city to solve the mystery of her own past; and one clue leads her to Nathan Sinclair, the rude, arrogant, and ridiculously handsome CEO of Sinclair Industries.

She doesn't remember him, but oh, does he remember her.

Something happened between them her freshman year. Something that made him harden his heart against her and all other women - something he refuses to talk about, even after their unexpected reunion explodes into a passionate love affair.

But even the hottest relationship this sweet physical therapist has ever experienced isn't enough to keep the demons of their shared past at bay. Someone's leaving her increasingly violent notes, and soon she doesn't know who she can trust. Can Layla solve the mystery of her past before it literally kills her?

Find out in this super-sexy BWWM standalone interracial romance from Theodora Taylor's wildly popular 50 Loving States series: a seriously hot, one-of-a-kind romance with a mystery that'll keep you on the edge of your seat!

    Story
    "Couldn't Stop Listening!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to a friend, yes. Theodora Taylor is a great writer and I listened to this audiobook as if I hadn't read the book already. It was so hard for me to pause it and go about life. I really liked it and I know others will too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best thing I liked about this story was the constant feeling of suspense. There was always something that had you thinking in the back of your mind "what happened then".


    Which character – as performed by Leyna Baltimore – was your favorite?

    My favorite character, performed by Leyna Baltimore, was Layla. I really like how she embodied Layla's character. Layla is sweet, nice, and polite. And her voice fit Layla, in my opinion.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did have an extreme reaction to this book. I was angry at a certain character because there was no way I would have put up with the things he made Layla put up with. He was heartless.


    Any additional comments?

    In addition, I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I found that I didn't want to stop it. It was a great experience.

    "A quick hot romantic suspense!"

    --I was given a copy of this audiobook for an honest review.

    This was a fun quick listen. It has a little bit of everything, passion, intrigue, suspense, family issues all rolled up in to one! The relationship between Layla and Nathan is sizzling from the very start. The fact that Layla is unable to remember Nathan, or his twin brother Andrew does lead you to believe that Nathan is up to no good for most of the book. Nathan is the kind of controlling man that you just want to fix, and I think Layla, while the damsel in distress handles him very well. It is nice to see a heroine that while needing a little rescue is not totally helpless. When Andrew comes back into the picture, I became a little concerned about where Nathan and Layla would end up(I knew where I wanted her to end up), and the twist of who was stalking her and wanting her to leave was quite surprising.

    Leyna Baltimore's portrayal of the characters was spot on for me. I enjoyed the passion and emotion in her voices and could easily tell each character apart. A fun read!

    Story
    "Great Writing-Unexpected Ending-Fantastic Narratio"


    Layla received a head injury her freshman year of college. She recovered well except for she had amnesia for the entire year preceding the injury. Now she wants to know what she missed.

    Her first clue is that her father owed a man named Nathan a lot of money. So she tracked him down to his office. When she gave the receptionist her name, she was stonewalled and told she would not get an opportunity to speak with him. Of course, she finds a way and they begin their troubled relationship.

    Before this listener knew it, they were in bed together. It was all the usual stuff these books are made of. He's handsome strong and big. She is confused but cannot understand this magnetic pull he has on her… He demands she signed a contract in which she will stay with him for three months.

    Layla begins to look for Nathan's brother (her second clue.) Especially as Nathan is not giving her any help in finding her lost year. For some reason that perplexes her, Nathan doesn't want her to get a hold of him.

    They have [descriptive] sex, all the time, and it is always wonderful. This is one of the books that I referred to chocolate (or any other vice one may have.) It is full of empty calories, but taste so good you can't stop.

    As Layla finally tracks down Andrew, there is a very important fact that the author purposely omitted until this meeting. This makes things more understandable but I was so little bit put off by it. From there, it seems like the drama, plot and writing would be more suitable for a young adult or teen audience (minus the sex).

    While I was disappointed with the route that Theadora Taylor chose, it seems the lazy way out, in my opinion. However, I am always quick to give kudos to any author good or bad for having the bravery and wherewithal to write a book, become published and have a large enough audience to get it on audio. It is very expensive and I am sure that those books making the cut face tremendous and daunting tasks.

    Leyna Baltimore's narration was very good. I appreciate the way that she was able to flow from one character to the next, male or female. Baltimore is a great narrator. This is the first book that I have listened to by Baltimore. She gives a solid performance and if I see her name on any books in the future, I won't hesitate to pick them up.

    Notes: Mature themes & strong language. Using the movie rating system NC-17

    *I was given this book at no fee in exchange for my review* If you found my review helpful in your decision to try this book, would you please select yes directly below this paragraph? Thank you so much.

    "Love the story, not the narration"
    What made the experience of listening to The Owner of His Heart the most enjoyable?

    I have read the story multiple times, it was great to actually hear the book. and be able to do something else while listening.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    both of the leads are equally my favors. I love the chemistry, I love the internal struggle they both have only wish the lead female stood her ground a little bit more. My heart goes out to Nathan, but he had way to much pride.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Leyna Baltimore?

    not unless it was theodara taylor book. over all I did not like the voice acting, it sounded like it was being read..... not like a story was being told


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the seen in the cottage is one of my favorites.


    Any additional comments?

    I have heard 3 books narrated by Michal Pauley in the last couple weeks he did a phenomenal job. please use a different voice actor, and can you do the Russian Billionaire next :)

    Story
    "Great Listen"
    Where does The Owner of His Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks pretty high in my listens. Kept me interested all the way through, listened to it in one sitty. Would like a book II to follow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Owner of His Heart?

    When Layla is kissing the wrong man and kind of realizes it.


    What does Leyna Baltimore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Leyna Baltimore keeps you interested. Narrates using different voices very well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes as I said above. I did listen all in one sitting! And did not want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    "Loved it"

    This story was definitely a good one.
    Living life without knowing exactly what has happened in your life can be a burden. She follows clues and follows them in order to put her life back together.
    I enjoyed the suspense and love in the story. It kept me listening.

    "It's a really good story..."

    I really like this story; the plot is interesting, the characters are finely sketched but with full texture. Though the narrator didn't bring the female lead to life in a way that resonated with me, the story was strong enough to outweigh that effect. Plus Ms. Baltimore's narration for the other characters (particularly the lead male character) was quite strong. In all, this was totally worth it...I'm just hoping Ms. Taylor goes with another narrator for future books (and especially for any from the Viking series!)

    "Slightly better than expected"

    Memory loss+arrogant CEO+interracial romance =a bit more interesting than your normal erotica. For me, at least. I was putting off listening to this book because of the arrogant CEO. It was better than I expected, but not as good of a story as it could've been if more thought was put into the story itself. The narrator did an ok job.

    I received a free copy of this audio book from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
