This time, all bets are off...

Penelope Carson loves to steal clients from Will Reaver. Yet something in her business nemesis's icy blue eyes makes Penelope...nervous. It certainly doesn't help that the man is the living embodiment of a Norse god. A controlled, powerful Norse god. Which she really should have remembered before she made a bet with him—because losing means be

Who do you belong to?" He stood, lifted her hips, and shoved into her. "Tell me, Penelope. Now.
"You."
"Say my name."


Ho-ly shit. This. Book. Was. Freaking. HAWT. I'll admit, being the Brazen junky that I am, I've read my fair share...and I do mean my fair share. So trust me when I tell you that this just may have been the most sizzling and kinky one yet.
We first met Will Reaver as Garrett's tamer and more reasonable and almost unassuming twin brother in Mistaken by Fate. Ha! T

3.5 - "I always take care of what's mine." Stars.

The fourth book in the Serve Series offers up a couple of tropes that I am not a massive fan of, I knew this going into it, and decided I would persevere due to the fact I like this authors writing style, and I have really enjoyed every book in this series so far.

I am glad I did because aside from that it was a bloody great read. I won't lie and say the tropes are now a favorite, and I still wouldn't actively go looking for (view spoiler)

I read this one because I love enemies to lovers. I liked it but didn't love it. There wasn't much banter between these two. They both seemed to want more pretty fast. lol I'm not a fan of insta anything so it was probably just me.
It's a quick read that's light on BDSM:))

“Betting on Fate” is book 4 in “Serve” Series and Katee Robert's second book in the series.

We met both MC, Will and Penelope in the previous book in the series. They are business rivals and both of them are Dominants at “Serve”. They both are attracted to each other, but of course they won’t admit.

Will and Pen find themselves going after the same client. They both are confident they are going to win, so they agree to a bet – if Will wins Pen will be his submissive for a week and if Pen

They both think they've got the contract in the bag. One will obviously lose. So, both being Dominant perso

Whoa. Talk about a quick and hot read. This was exactly that. Short and sexy.

Will and Penelope are business rivals and Dominants who play at the same club. By day they're one upping each other for contracts. And by night they're dancing around their blatant attraction to each other. They're both control freaks who despise the complication relationships can bring. But when they make a bet in which the loser has to submit to the winner for a week, things get complicated real

I had crazy high hopes for Will and Penelope. And Katee Robert definitely delivered another fantastic installment in the Serve series but I do have to say it's not my favorite. I enjoyed a lot more the other installments and I don't know exactly why. I simply did not connect as much with this couple as I thought I would. And I wish we had a different kind of ending. Still, the chemistry was super hot and it was great seeing Will and Penelope fall in love! I am excited to read

Betting on Fate is the fourth book in the Serve multi-author series but the story does work well as a standalone, we have already met Will in Mistaken by Fate though. Will is the twin brother of Garrett and I had a feeling he'd be the more dominant of the two so I was really looking forward to getting to know him better. I had very high hopes for this book before I started it and I'm pleased to say that Katee Robert didn't let me down, I think this was actually the hottest book in the series and ...more

"Betting on Fate" is the story of Will and Penelope.
Apart from being business competators, Penelope and Will are also Doms at club serve. When loss of a business bet leads to Penelope submitting to Will for a week, tables are turned and true feelings come to light.
Average book with lukewarm chemistry, good understanding of BDSM elements, and touches of voyeurism.
All was going ok until..menage attack!
I've said it many at times- if the author wants to bring a third person in the bedroom-please war

This series has been a true winner for me. Each story has a completely different edge, whilst weaving it’s way through the backdrop of the notorious BDSM club; Serve.

Tessa Bailey dished up the first 2 in this series, and Katee Robert had the unenviable job of continuing it, and boy did she do a great job with the Reaver twins.

Having loved Mistaken by Fate, I couldn't wait to dive into this and see what Katee Robert had in store for Will Reaver. The glimpses we caught of him in his twin's story (Garrett), left me tantalised for more.

“When I win, you’ll wear my collar for a week.”

Will is a Dom and Penelope Carson a switch, although more used to being dominant than submissive. And when she loses a business bet meaning she spends 7 days as his personal sub, it's challenging to say the least.

Pushing all sorts of boundaries, this latest entry in the Serve series from the Entangled Brazen line is the steamy story of Penelope and Will. When these two dominant characters match wits and companies in an effort to gain a business contract, a bet between them results in Penelope agreeing to submit to Will for seven days. But while submitting in body may be what she had in mind, things take a more intense turn for both of them when they realize that seven days isn't going to be enough to exp ...more

I suppose the cover is a dead giveaway of what the theme of this book is. You got it! hehe… It’s a story of 2 consultant rivals who happen to be into the same lifestyle, entered a “business” bet where whoever loses submits to the winner, and basically, the h lost. What is even more interesting is that she’s a switch.

I would imagine this is more in the low to mid-range in the BDSM spectrum, because I myself who haven’t read too much BDSM-themed romance stories thought the scenes are manageable,

It appears I'm on a roll.



Of course, if a certain someone stopped reading erotic romance when she knows perfectly well she doesn't like it, maybe we wouldn't have this problem.

It might be time for me to switch to, you know, real books.

Oh, gorgeous Dom Will!

My second book from this author and book 4 in the Serve series, which has been really enjoyable. I knew I'd love Will when we saw him briefly in book 3, he was so different from his twin, cool, calculating and totes dominant. The Dynamics between him and Penelope were interesting, she was another dominant/switch and she loses a bet, and has to become his sub for 7 days. Intense sexy times and love happens.

LOVED it.

When I met Penelope in the previous book of the series and she briefly mistook Garrett for Will, I immediately liked her. I suspected a strong, sassy, defiant woman and that is exactly what she turned out to be in her own book.
When Will was decribed by Ridley as "ice" in the previous book (the one about his twin Garrett who was described as "fire") I was immediately intrigued. When he lectured Garrett about how stupid he was being towards Ridley and love, that's the moment I fell for Will and b

Two dominant natures clashing for power? It certainly was interesting to watch. Rivals for contracts, Will and Penelope find themselves betting a week of submitting to the winner. And it's her who has to wear his collar and submit to his erotic games of power.

I must say it was highly entertaining to witness these two proud characters tease each other, find their limits. She challenges her temporary Dom for all her worth and, to his surprise, he likes it. She's afraid to lose herself in the proce

Don't hesitate, just one-click it!

The whole BDSM thing is so not my cup of tea so it says everything about Katee Robert's talent as a writer that I was willing to step over the lines of my comfort zone to read her latest works. Once again, she absolutely slays it with a perfect balance of panty-melting love scenes and a brilliant love story.

I'd been a fan of Penelope since her mention in MEETING HIS MATCH and then her cameo in MISTAKEN BY FATE. She's driven, intelligent, and exudes a sexual conf

Betting on Fate is a very well-written romance novel. However, there was just something missing for me. The characters lacked much personality, despite their alternative lifestyle. And neither of them really made me feel anything other than mild annoyance.

First of all, Will should have been fascinating. I love a tortured control-freak, but he just seemed wooden (not in a good way) and immature to me.

Penelope showed real promise when she showed up in one of the previous Serve installments but she

Holy Mother of everything that is raunchy this book is HOT!!!! Dare I say this may be the riskiest/naughtiest Entangled Book I have ever read? I may or may not have had to repeatedly fan myself while reading this.

Twin Brothers... Garrett and Will Reaver.
Twins are known for either being fire and ice.
Garrett was explosive, he was fire.
Will is intense, he is ice.

What do fire and ice have in common? Both can burn. Well, the Reaver brothers will do just that.

The introductory peak of Will and Penelope in Mistaken By Fate was enough to lure your attention. Betting On Fate delivered just that. Two consultants competing in the cut throat world of business. Two dominants controlling the bedroom. The question in
