Publisher's Summary

She thought this was a game. She thought she could walk away.

She thought wrong.

I've lived a cold, unforgiving life. I've seen things, I've done things, that would break a man. If they didn't kill him first.

With my past behind me, I have nothing. No way to atone for my sins and nothing to lift me from the depths of despair I've come from. And no one to give me the control that I so desperately desire.

But as soon as I saw Lilly walk through the halls of Club X, something inside my cold heart flickered. With her large, blue eyes, and her seductive curves, I wanted her. Lilly, my flower. There's a sweet innocence about her that steals the breath from my lungs. She brings my darkness to the surface, and what's more...she craves it just as much as I do.

The danger is what lured her to me. But she didn't realize how intense this would be when she signed that contract.

She thought it was all fantasy and make-believe. But I'm not a knight in shining armor. I'm not a hero from a romance novel. I'm the villain.

And now she wants to leave?

I won't allow it.

I own her. And I'm not letting her go.

Owned is a full-length standalone dark romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.

Awesome Listen!!!

This book was so good! This is a standalone listen, yet part of a series. The link to this series is Club X and mention of a certain few characters. Each book spotlights a different set of couples and their story. I love that each book has a happy ending and does not end in a cliffhanger. This book (and series) opened my eyes to various aspects to bdsm. Trust is huge. Lauren Landish and Willow Winters write seamlessly together. They are very talented. The narrators (Douglas Berger and Brooke Hayden) did a great job with this duel narration. I loved getting into the minds of Lilly and Joseph. The narration adds so much more than just reading the book (which I previously did) can deliver on the feelings and emotions, and excitement. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. Highly recommend this book.

  • Story

He should be head of the mafia but...

He took the fall to escape his fate as the eldest son of a mafia kingpin. Now, just as he discovered happiness with his sweet virgin, Lilly, they've come back for him and she is caught in the middle of a terrifying situation.

Now Joseph must find a way to protect his sweet little Lilly. She is perhaps the only person who sees the light inside his dark soul and without her, he will never find his way out of the darkness.

The story is crafted with a passionate heat that burns between the two main characters. It has intensity and intrigue that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat wondering how it will turn out.

The narration is stellar and just as addicting as the writing is. I enjoyed this book and recommend listening to it, but be sure to save it until you have time to really kick back because once you begin this story you won't want to stop until you are completely finished with the book.

A not to miss read

The Highest Bidder series has been absolutely incredible. Wealthy, Intense, Dominant Men finding their match in a submissive relationship. The details and suspense are engaging, keeping your attention throughout the entire book. The characters are relate-able and you root for the happy ending.

Joseph has taken a risk, the fall to leave the family business. Things didn't quite workout how the "family" thought it would, Joseph still walks free, but no one trusts him. Thats ok with Joseph as he doesn't trust anyone either. He is looking for a submission but not just any submission, he needs someone that will give him her full trust.

Lilly is finding her way in this new world that she craves, but is scared to push herself to actually try. Joseph pushes her and she blooms like the flower that he calls her. She learns to trust him and heal him.

This is an intense read, Lauren and Willow have brought the imagination to life in this book and series. The story is engaging and can leave you breathless.

Love this series

The female narrator sounds to young for this dark of a story... however the overall is great! The male narrator is great for this role... I love how all 4 books relate to each other without needing one for the other... each book has a different dominant male and his torrid past... thru a dominant relationship they all eventually need each other but the journey is a rocky one... all 4 books worth the credits
Love how this one refers to an author named for both our writers... clever ladies!

HIs to protect

I done the whispersync with this book. I loved the narrators. They truly brought the characters to life and pulled me into the story.

Lilly is innocent in a way. Has not explored her sex life, she is a virgin. But like most of us women she loves her dirty romance. I loved that she was curious about a different life style. This had to be truly scary for someone as innocent as her. But going watching the BDSM role play was like her fix for on dealing with everything she had to deal with through the day.

Lily had a good heart. She wanted to help kids that were going down the wrong path. Her heart broke for them. I do like the fact that she knew she could only help them if they wanted help. She did not want them to pull the wool over her eyes.

Joseph was this bad boy that was super sexy. He had the scary feel to him. Men around the BDSM club knew he was a man that needed to be feared. He use to be in the Mafia.

While reading this story we will get to know Joseph more and more. His past is heartbreaking. For man that was in the mafia he truly had a good heart. I love that he needed Lily and was determined to have her.

There is so much chemistry between the two. Lily might be a submissive but she is one that has a rebellious streak and likes to show she will not be pushed around. I love how Joseph handle her. He never allowed his anger to get the best of him even when she was doing something she was not suppose to do.

There is danger around the corner and Joseph must do what he can to keep Lily safe. I love the bond these two had formed. Joseph will realize how much he really feels for Lily. It is a love worth dying for.

Don’t worry there are plenty of steamy parts. I truly loved this story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

must read

I started this series just a few days ago and I can't stop. Each book is a stand alone but you do get introduced to additional characters in each book. Joseph and Lilly stole my heart and I hope they will be brought back in future books just so I can see how they are doing.

Great read, I loved this book!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Owned to be better than the print version?

I read and listen at the same time. There is such tremendously elevated level of dimension added by having the audio that I cannot imagine and seldom read any book without listening to it. So I am a HUGE advocate of adding more books to Audible.com.

What other book might you compare Owned to and why?

All the books in this "Highest Bidder" series are comparable and I love them all. Each has a unique twist in one way or another that brings a different flavor to it.

Which character – as performed by Douglas Berger and Brooke Hayden – was your favorite?

Joseph was my favorite character; a completely unique individual who ends up in a loving relationship, despite having survived horrendously grotesque life events early on.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Why would anyone go the movies when they can stay home with audio books???
