Publisher's Summary

When introverted doctor Ben Hardy's high-maintenance girlfriend wants to introduce a little more kink into their love life, he doesn't expect it to come in the form of the hunky new EMT who just moved to Blackwood. Ben's not gay, but damn! He can definitely see why all the women turn to mush when he's around: tall, blue eyes, body of an underwear model. The prospect of being naked in the same room with him is horrifying. So why the hell is he considering it?

Corey Butler desperately needs to leave his shady past behind, and the microscopic town of Blackwood is just the place to do it. No drama, no danger, no sleeping under bridges. What he doesn't need is a huge crush on someone who's completely out of his league. When Dr. Hardy's gorgeous girlfriend propositions him for a threesome, he knows the smart thing would be to say no. Of course it would. But then, Corey's never been known for making smart decisions.

(A M/M Romance containing graphic M/M & M/F/M scenes.)

Even better the 2nd time with Audible!

I've previously read Owning Cory on my Kindle, but when Maris Black said it was being released on Audible with J.F Harding as narrator, I just had to get the audible version and read/listen again. I'm happy to say that story with the narrative makes it even more enjoyable! This a great mm story with a little angst, a little suspense and a whole lot of hot man action with a little m/f/m thrown in to get the balls rolling....definitely worth the 2nd read. Enjoy!

I would give it more stars if I could

so many reviews here got me worried I was going to hate the book. I found it pretty awesome, I don't want to give too much away other than the fact this book is worth every penny.

Ben & Corey So HOT !

If you could sum up Owning Corey in three words, what would they be?

Three Some Hot

What did you like best about this story?

Corey's struggle to feel worthy of Ben, and his plans to win the straight guy.

Which scene was your favorite?

In the pool house when Corey gets brave and walks up behind Ben. It was a do or die moment for the story line.

Who was the most memorable character of Owning Corey and why?

Corey, he had been through so much. He was such a mystery under the beautiful wrapper.

Any additional comments?

Wow !!! I have listened to this 3 times and it held my interest each time. No doubt Ben and Corey will draw me back again.

I enjoyed J. F. Harding's narration

I enjoyed J. F. Harding's narration and the scenes that portrayed Ben and Corey's attraction to each other.
Although it was well written, I found it hard to accept much of the plot and their background stories. So if you can suspend belief and reality, it's worth listening for a gay-for-you romance that develops between these two men.

Love the narrator, struggled with the story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I will quite honestly listen to JF Harding raed a shopping list and bought this book because I'm a big fan of his, but I struggled with the story. The characters fell a little flat for me and acted more like frat boys than extremely successful medical professionals.

If you’ve listened to books by Maris Black before, how does this one compare?

I am a huge fan of the Kage series and know that Maris Black does not always write easy characters. They are often flawed and sometimes difficult to like. BUt in this instance I honestly felt as if I couldn't get a handle on them. They were two highly decorated medical professionals who acted inappropriate and unprofessionally, spoke like college students and jumped from in love to conflicted from one paragraph to the next.

Have you listened to any of J. F. Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

JF Harding only has one setting, excellent. He never disappoints.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

I'm not sure...

Interesting storyline

It took me about a week to listen to the book but it was engaging. I felt the characters were a bit on the shallow side at first but then they grew on me.
