Publisher's Summary

"I like you collared, baby. I like you naked, I like you mine."

Ellie Stevens has lusted over Kayne Roberts since he first walked into the import/export company she works for a little over a year ago. As Expo's most important client, Ellie has always kept a safe distance from the man with the majestic blue eyes - until temptation finally gets the better of her. Impulsively, Ellie invites Kayne to one of Expo's infamous company parties her flamboyant boss is notorious for throwing. Unbeknownst to Ellie, the god in the Armani suit isn't just the suave entrepreneur he portrays himself to be. Underneath the professional exterior is a man with a secret life, dark desires, and nefarious contacts.

In a hidden corner of a trendy New York City lounge, the spark kindling between the two of them ignites. Unable to resist the sinful attraction, Ellie agrees to leave with Kayne, believing she is finally bedding the man of her dreams. Little does she know when she walks out the door, she's about to be Owned.

Content warning: Owned is a dark erotic romance. Please pay close attention to the use of the words dark, erotic, and romance. It has intense sexual situations, a Master/slave relationship, mild abuse, and some violence. Listener discretion is advised.

A wild & scorching ride!

This is not your run of the mill romance! Before pressing play be aware that this is a dark, twisty, BDSM story where "Nothing is as it seems".
I went into this story blind and am so very glad I did. This being said, M.Never does in this series what she does so well... Creating characters with a very solid background, unshakeable motivations & chemistry. She has created extraordinary circumstances to grow, bond and fall foreachother in the most unlikely of situations. To an ordinary listener this might just be an audio with very hot and dangerous circumstances for the sake of inmediate gratification (sex for the sake of sex). Having gone through Ellie & Kayne's full story I see there is so much more than meets the eye. These two people connected and teathered to eachother for every different reasons and as a listener going through this story with the performances of these amazing narrators you are experiencing every nuance of the ride. Both narrators took to this performance with full commitment and it is so clear how they aimed to give a true voice to these characters and truth to their circumstances.
Just when you think M.Never can't get more twisty, you are proven wrong over and over. She weaves a story filled with so many layers of unapologetic sex yet these characters have a hold of their own with their inner strength and vulnerability. You can not help but be owned by this story in every way. BRAVO!!

✫✫ 4 Star Story with 5 Star Narration ✫ ✫

I really enjoyed this dark, twisty story of betrayal, lies and sex. The story line was great and I think most people are in for a surprised for sure. I would have loved a little bit more of the history between the two main characters in the very beginning because that always helps me to feel the connection between them. I wanted to hate Kayne but just couldn't, he showed his good side a few times which made me like him. I was on the fence will Ellie in the beginning, she didn't put up as much of a fight as I would have thought considering. This book is about 75% sex, hot, dark, dominate, depraved sex, If you don't like dark not completely consensual sex in your stories maybe this one isn't for you. I loved the ending and I need to start book 2 asap!!

The narration is incredible! Muffy & Sam are both amazing narrators. I buy books just based on the narrators when it's one of them.

🔥WOW🔥 if you love dark, BDSM, and insanely hot then you will LOVE ❤️

I waited to review book one until I listened to the entire series, so this is more of a review for all 3 books but I won't give anything away! What an INCREDIBLE series. I've honestly never listened to anything like it. Sure I've listened to the same theme of story, but M. Never is very gifted and she did phenomenal on this series. It's definitely unlike any of her other audiobooks. And I would definitely heed the warning ⚠️ it isn't for everybody. I knew as soon as I read the disclaimer that it was written just for me 😍 I love dark, I love hot, I love passionate, I love BDSM, I love master/slave, I love EVERYTHING about this series. It stayed hot 🔥🔥🔥 and interesting, and not only held my attention until the end, but it left me wanting more! I've been in a book slump and nothing has been able to get me out of it, until now. This seriously may be my favorite series of 2018. It will take a hell of a lot to bump it from my favorite of the year. If you like dark listens then I beg you to give this a shot. It's worth all the credits!!!!

Not what I expected!

I will say that I almost gave up on this book. It was pretty dark and didn’t really draw me in right away. I really fell in love with the book once he started opening up to ellie more emotionally. Then I was full on addicted to it and couldn’t stop listening. I haven’t listened to a book like this and it was pretty intense, but I will say if this is your first time listening to a BDSM novel, stick with it because you can really feel the Love he has for her halfway through the book. It’s super hot too! I already bought the second book to listen to. Oh and the narration is SO GOOD. Probably the best I’ve heard.

DO NOT READ IF UR NOT INTO ANAL

No one reviewed that this is a book of rape, torture and a man in the closet. DO NOT READ!!! The narrator is good and would be a semi decent plot if not for the obsession of making this be full of queer fantasies. I couldn't even get pass chapter 2. made me sick to my stomach. just awful.

HOLY SHIT, I LOVE THIS AUTHOR!!

I had to finish the series before writing this so here goes....Before you buy this series,
I highly recommend you commit to the entire thing, or you really wont get it!!! Book one is quite Hard Core and maybe hard to listen to in parts, but nothing short of fantastic on all levels! The narration is spot on perfect. The Hotness level is off the chart and the story is heart pumping, can't put it down, stay up all night great!!
M. Never, NEVER disappoints me and has quickly become one of my top two writers. She has a gift of capturing and telling the underbelly of human need and greed!

On to book two........and two point five.......

too much for me

Too much BDSM for me, very dark. Would have liked it to be a little more light hearted
