Book Review - Own by Katie Porter

My Thoughts

Katsu's father has been injured in a mission and Evan has been assigned to keep her safe. Years ago they had a brief affair that didn't end well and Katsu's heart was broken. That complicates their arrangement until Evan makes the decision to dominate her. What he doesn't know is that she has already accepted and explored her submissive side. The only problem is that she doesn't completely trust him with her heart after what happened before. She fully expects him to leave her again.

At the same time they are exploring their relationship, there is also the danger that Katsu is in because of who her father is. When her apartment is broken into it leads Evan and her into the battle to make her and everyone else on the team safe.

I so adored Katsu. When we first meet her, she is a tough as nails pool shark and then later we see the glimpse of her softer side in submitting to Evan. Holy hotness! Evan is delicious. He is just realizing his need to dominate, but not just anyone. Only Katsu. And he is one hot Dom.

The action in this story is the backdrop of all that happens within the relationships. From both Katsu and Evan's interactions with her father in the ICU to the moment when they go to the house of a fallen member of the team to help ease the pain of his family.

The is the first book that I've read by these authors and I am totally hooked. I can't wait to read another by them.

I give Own 5 hearts!

About the Book

When a mission against the Russian mafia goes south, Colonel Stafford, head of a deep-cover ops team, wrests a hospital-bed promise from his protégé. Although eager to return to the field, Evan Sommers swears to keep the colonel’s daughter, Katsu, safe from retaliation.

The task isn’t simple for the battle-tested Marine Corps captain. Four years have passed since his secret affair with sweet, compliant Katsu. Now she’s a streetwise pool shark who refuses to obey any command.

Kat resists the need for Evan’s protective shadow, until deadly threats expose her vulnerability. Her future depends on this hardened soldier, and their sizzling dynamic reveals what Kat’s bland college dating life lacked—a man with the will and desire to tame her.

Danger creates potent, unexpected scenarios that test their sexual limits, yet a real relationship is impossible. Evan is the warrior who could be her Master, but how can she fully submit? The next mission—even the next knock on the door—could rob Kat of the man she loves.
