Trust is something earned. Trust is something critical in a positive D/s relationship. It was something badly damaged recently when William ‘Billy’ Davern’s good friend, Oliver repeatedly hit Billy’s submissive partner Montana or Tanny after Billy had been shot.
Billy and Tanny are finding ways to get their relationship back on track now that Billy is on the mend and Tanny has returned. The couple has come so far, learning about each other while exploring their BDSM lifestyle. Billy is an educated, successful writer. A top yearning to find his counterpart in a submissive. Tanny on the other hand is the exact opposite, a runaway and a junkie or as he says ‘a loser’. A horrible accident several years ago left Tanny with deep scars inside and out, with nothing to live for until he met Billy.
Somehow this unlikely pair found happiness together. It will always be a work in progress for Tanny to stay clean and succeed, but Billy swears he’s in it for the long haul. Tanny has a good job, clean body, and a lover he adores. As they explore the BDSM lifestyle with each other their love grows stronger. Someday perhaps, Tanny will believe that he is accepted for who is by others in the lifestyle, Billy’s friends at his club The Hammer. Love may conquer all, but it’s going to be a long road getting there. Meanwhile, Oliver is missing and his submissive partner Jack is frantic.
Innovative and mesmerizing, Owned is a wonderful addition to the Hammer series. Readers are taken on a journey of tumultuous emotions, imaginative BDSM scenes, and the ultimate commitment between lovers. Billy and Tanny explore the depths of their love in Owned as they continue forward with a secondary story concerning partners Oliver and Jack. A new character, Jack Harrod, is introduced, hopefully as the lead in a future storyline, please. Owned is easily read as a standalone story while fans of the series are going to rejoice – visiting with old friends as well as watching Billy and Tanny become closer than ever. Strong BDSM context, extremely erotic scenes, and enthralling emotional depth, this latest installment in the Hammer series titled Owned is in a league all its own.
