Owned By Fate by: Tessa Bailey

Her mind rejects his world. But her body knows its master.
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 realizes Jonah might just be the man to break down all her defenses…if she’ll let him.

my-review
This is my first book by Tessa Bailey and I was very impressed. Loving BDSM, I chose this as my first. I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

Jonah and Caroline are the main characters. Caroline is a little more complex than Jonah. He knows who he is and what he desires, needs and wants. Well until she enters his club. Caroline is a prim and proper magazine owner and is more worried about her father and his old school desires instead of what she wants. The conflict in the story is Caroline deciding what she wants, needs and desires while trying to do the right thing. It takes her hitting rock bottom to figure it out.

It was heartbreaking to read Caroline’s struggle. I carried the two characters in my head while doing yard work. I couldn’t get them out and just wanted to go read more instead of working. The pace was pretty good keeping me wanting to know more and more. I was rooting for Jonah and appreciated his respect for Caroline in trying to do the right thing by her. Even when it hurt him.

I love the mix in the story as his daughter was introduced to the story. It showed a more human side to him but one where he needed a balance between work and family.

This will not be my last Tessa Bailey book. I look forward to more.

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

 Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

 She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of nine years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
