Summary

Hannah

There are no good men, only bad ones. The men from my past have proven this time and time again. I have no reason to think this one will be any different. One minute, I’m having dinner with my father and the next, I’m locked in a dark room waiting to be sold to the highest bidder. I can only imagine what kind of hell my life is about to become.
 

Reed

I am what I am. A sadist with a soul as dark as night. I’ve accepted this long ago. I wasn’t always like this. A man can only see so much evil until it changes him, haunts him, and clouds the way he views the world. I swore to never let anyone get close to me, but there’s something about Hannah. She intrigued me. I wanted her. I needed to know what lies beyond that broken spirit. I had to have her...so I bought her.

Bought is book number one in The Owned Series. It does end on a light cliffhanger but I promise it is so worth it! As a special thank you, I'm including bonus content that will only be available during launch week! Enjoy!

Great narration!

This is a surprisingly enjoyable story. It's somewhat tame compared to most books in the genre. The storyline is well-paced and interesting, keeping the listener engaged. The characters are well-developed and intriguing. Hannah is innocent in the ways of the world with terrible luck in men. Reed is a contractor for the government, who saves Hannah from a trafficking ring.

The narration by Rodney Falcon is fabulous. His performance is flawless. He did a great job of bringing the characters to life. Overall this is an enjoyable book, and I can't wait to hear the rest of the series.I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

interesting cirumstances for characters

Disclaimer: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The main character for this book is really interesting. I really enjoyed reading the alternating POVs as they showed how each character viewed themselves and each other in the circumstances that they are in, and in that, showed their feelings, trust and emotions towards each other. Interaction is quite realistic as well, given the situation and I am glad it did not go in ways where the female starts behaving unreasonably since she seemed to be a smart character. I do find it irritating that the female character does not seem bothered by her circumstances or how she ended up where she is. Feels like she is strangely devoid of feelings or thoughts at certain point.

Their slowly blossoming relationship is cute to watch as well. The only downside is that the main character's career seems to border on being too convenient for him, and little is written about it eventually. Everything just seemed to be rushed over or briefly mentioned, which feels like a waste, since that was what made the story interesting in the first place.

Narration by Rodney Falcon is well done, he did a nice job in bringing forth the emotions of the characters and the pacing is nice. The calmness suits both characters well.

Compelling

This one is a fantastic introduction to the darker side of romance. It’s not as dark as others that I have listened to but is still very compelling and you get a fair dose of story for such a short novel. Loved Rodneys narration

Awful

First off..it’s kind of unclear but this is a series and must be read in order. All of the books are very short novella size books.

I read this book via audiobook. The narrator does this weird thing where every sentence ends with his voice going up almost as if each sentence is read as a question.

The story...where do I start? So girl graduates school. Her Dad wants to celebrate by taking her on a trip but then before they get on the airplane they’re picked up by guys that inform them her Dad has a gambling problem and either they can kill him or take her to sell. So naturally Dad gives her up so he can be set free and go gamble some more without saying goodbye. Meanwhile, hot cop that chases bad guys gets a list of women that are being sold and one girls name sounds familiar. He’s never met her before but because Las Vegas is such a small city he sees her all the time and knows a lot about her. The police won’t do anything to stop the auction. So hot cop goes in and buys her. Then he decides...she’s pretty hot and he’s already spent the money so he mind as well keep her for his own. Then heroine gives her entire life story to her capture day 2. She tells him about every bad boyfriend she’s ever had and he beats them up and takes pictures because why not.. then she finds the pictures and she’s terrified for her life and runs away but he catches her...and oh thank god he did cause really he’s saving her. But, he’s got a secret of his own. He’s a Dom looking for a sub and she would make a really good one. So like day 4 of being captured, sold in sex slavery, bought, escaped, captured again....heroine is TOTALLY into being blindfolded and flogged. Because duh. Who wouldn’t, right!?! 🤯🤯🤯

Intriguing

The heroine Hannah in this book was very naive. She has some strong characteristics, but she allowed her past to get in the way. Reid it to be more upfront with Hannah and not keep her in the dark. Over all this book kept me wanting more. As always I always love to hear Rodney Falcon narrate.

Addictive Start To This Dark Romance Trilogy

Hello dark romance, alpha hero! This start to a trilogy definitely did it's job at pulling me in and keeping me hooked. Hannah is a victim of her father's sins and selfishness. Reed discovers her while he is undercover for the security company he runs while at an auction. Something about her latches onto him and he has to save her. But don't go thinking he is your typical hero. Reed has his own selfish desires too. He wants Hannah, but first he wants to make sure she's safe. Hannah is confused and not willing to trust Reed who keeps her locked in a house. Survival kicks in and she will do whatever she can to survive. This story was fast paced and had a cliffhanger that had me clicking book two right away. This narrator has the perfect voice that sets the mood for this story. A definite read/listen for dark romance fans. I couldn't wait to see what happens next!

Hold onto your seat, this series is one wild ride

Hannah has not had an easy life and it is about to get even worse. In order to save himself, her father gives her to be auctioned off. Reed wants to protect her from this sale, and yet have her for himself. There is only one way to do this, he buys her. That is just where the books takes off running. Hannah and Reed are a very unlikely pair, but the sparks are flying. Hannah is a very storing woman. Her strength amazes me as she faces adversity with a poker face. Reed is a sadist. He thrives on inflicting pain. But can he convince Hannah to try his ways? I was hooked from the auction and I could not stop listening to it until the end. Suspense, action, steam, this book has it all.

Rodney Falcon is amazing in this performance. He brings out the dominance and roughness of Reed. Rodney narrated Reed exactly as I imagined him. Rodney has an easy to listen to voice. His female characters are easy to distinguish and smooth. Rodney brought this story to life and left me wanting more.

Story that will captivate you!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and voluntarily wrote this unbiased review. This a 3 part series which consists of 3 short novellas. The first book does end in a cliffhanger but the other books are already out. Reed and Hannah are both strong characters that carry heart-wrenching pasts. You can't help but fall in love with them. When life is at its worst, she finds hope but that soon shatters. Can Reed win her back?

Rodney does a superb job of portraying the emotions of these characters and brings them to life. He makes you feel their pain, hope, and then their utter despair. He will hold your attention throughout the story. Now on to Bent.

a small taste of the story

I wish it had been longer. Not what I expected. Like it's only part of a story and has cliffhanger ending but I need to know what happens so I guess I have to get the next one because I'm so intrigued and can't make up my mind about Reed.

A confusing storyline.

A cliffhanger that has left me scratching my head. It ended way too abruptly. The timeline was confusing. Reed has a girl at the club he wants to marry, yet he is attracted to Hannah. He wants to keep Hannah at home and safe.!? How could Hannah exist while Reed went out of town for 90 days? Why wasn't Hannah more upset about being sold out by her father? Why wasn't she more scared about being sold? Scratching my head here.....
I am thinking Hannah's lack of emotion could be the narrator's fault. Maybe he just didn't portray her correctly.

Great story

The story was good and so was the narration. Just wish it was a duo narration. i feel like a woman's voice was definitely needed for Hannah's part. All in all it was good.

Good story!💜

This was a good story but wasn’t what I was expecting.
A slight cliffhanger but the entire series is less than six hours and already released so you’ll be alright.
Narration was very good!
This is book one.
