While this is the fourth book in the Owned and Protected series, it can easily be read as a stand alone novel. Although, some of the former couples are mentioned in passing they really don't play that much of a role in the overall plot. This book pulled me in almost from the first page and never let go, making me wish I could simply read it in one sitting. Nice mix of romantic heat, suspense and a bit of kink you've come to expect from this series, made this another great read by Measha Stone. ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
His Captive Kitten by Measha Stone is book 4 in the Owned and Protected series. This is the story of Julie and John. I have read the previous books but I do think you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. John is a police officer who cabin Julie ends up being in when things go terrible wrong when she went looking for her Mom. John is know going to take Julie in to be his Pet since she was to hardheaded to listen to his warnings of the danger she was getting into. Enjoyed this ho ...more

This story was awesome!
Measha writes beautiful complicated stories with dominant men and women who are not afraid to soar.
There was so much emotion and drama and extremely hot scenes!
Louise H  -  ⭐ Life in the Book Lane Reviews ⭐
Wowsers, I've always been a bit your-kink-isn't-my-kink-but-that's-ok about pet play, but Measha Stone certainly makes it sound hot!

Despite what I'm sure some readers will think, this is a FULLY consensual BDSM romantic suspense. I've read all three previous books in the series so didn't even need to read the blurb, I just one-clicked on this. Whilst it very briefly mentions characters from previous books this can definitely be read as a stand alone, as can the other books in the series.

The latest story in the Owned and Protected Book did not disappoint. I really like the way the relationship between Julie and John developed. The beginning as basically anonymous play partners set the beginning boundaries of the relationship. He knows what turns her on and he finds her very appealing. Then when they meet again and he becomes involved in her search for her mother and protecting her from thugs that seem to be pursuing her for reasons neither understand, we see a relationship bloom ...more

I read this in one sitting and then started it again. The plot is wonderfully tense and suspenseful, with action scenes interwoven by intense punishment and play. The heroine is absolutely wonderful and my heart broke for her. She so deserved her HEA. John is perfect for her and I was delighted that he never abused her trust or broke from his role as her alpha - the last couple of series I've read have been really disappointing in that regard but this book didn't let me down for a second. It was ...more

Intense - Captivating
This is an engaging and suspenseful romance with all kinds of "OMG" "NO Way" and "He!! No, you didn't" moments sprinkled with plot twists you never see coming.
The characters are easy to connect with and the story flows smoothly
The chemistry between John and Julie is off the charts - there are times I am not sure if they are going to shred each other or love each other - seriously though kitten has some claws!
Julie is such a strong and quick-witted heroine - I enjoyed her q

When Police Officer John is sent to check on a friend of a friend he’s surprised to find the mysterious woman from the BDSM club he’d encounter a few nights earlier. He’s soon drawn in by Julie’s desperate mission to find her missing mother.

Julie is fiercely independent and impulsive. When she follows a lead to an apartment linked to her mother she ends up hurt when a meth lab blows up. John is called to the hospital and she must learn to rely on him while running from the men who are after her

Another awesome story written by Measha Stone that just sucks you in. You can feel all the emotions from John and Julie as they try to figure out why and who is after Julie. In the meantime, John ties to keep her mind busy by playing with her. THey met in a BDSM club after all. As things get dangerous and Julie gets more impulsive in her actions, it's going to take John to rein her in and keep things under control while he tries to figure out what is going on. There's danger, mystery and heartbr ...more
I stopped reading at 54% so I am not rating this book. It was okay, but as the famous break-up line proclaims, “it’s not you, it’s me.” Meaning... the book was decent, but it wasn’t as good as I had hoped. I love books with dom/sub themes and pet-play is a kink I enjoy reading about, but I did not find this book all that erotic. The characters seemed flat to me and I wasn’t pulled into the story. All this adds up to DNF.

Julie is in hiding after she gets in trouble while looking for her missing mother. She is hiding in a cabin with John, a police officer and he plans to make her his pet. Soon sparks are flying between them and she falls for his dominance. Will she trust him? Fast-paced read with intense chemistry. Plenty of twists and turns and lots of steam. I really liked it.

Pet play

John met her at the club and played a scene with her but that was only the beginning. His Kitten was trouble and attracted more trouble but he wanted to protect her and help her with her kinky needs.

Loved, loved, loved this book! The 4th in the series, though each can be read as a stand-alone, this is my favorite so far. I loved the relationship between John and Julie; they really seemed to be equals in the relationship. At every turn, Julie could have walked away from any punishments John gave her, but she didn't and I liked that. Looking forward to the next book (I hope there is one!) ...more

I love Measha Stone's books. I have read all the books in this series, and I love them more and more with each reread and each new book. I just can't get enough of the series or her writing.

Julie's mom disappeared 6 months ago and now she's doing everything she can to find her. One night, she's at a BDSM club to get what she needed and she played with a new Dom. The next day, the same man showed up at her house to check on her, not knowing that Kitten and Julie were the same person. That's when

This was way more intense than I initially thought it was going to be. After the stress she'd been through, Julie was supposed to meet Jimmy at the club except once she arrived, she received a text from him saying something came up and he wouldn't be able to make it. There was no relationship there, just play partners, but she was hoping for some relief. So, instead of playing, she thought she would watch for a while but the couple performing seemed to be reciting a script. In discus and disap ...more

“The only kitten he wants to keep”

Review Rating: 5.0 out of 5 stars

I received an Advance Reader Copy for HIS CAPTIVE KITTEN (Owned and Protected, Book #4) written by Measha Stone and voluntarily reviewed this book. Julie’s mother has been missing for the last six months, and what little Julie has been able to find did not add up nor has her mother been acting as expected. On the night she really needed a Dom, Julie’s regular play partner was a no-show. Instead, she draws the eye of John, who was

Another wonderful story in the Owned and Protected series. This is Book 4 and can be read as a stand alone but I believe it is enjoyable to read all of them. Measha Stone intertwines the characters from earlier books and they are an integral part of the various stories and one feels comfy and cozy. Each book tells its own story, no repetition, no reiteration. In this story we meet another Sexy, Alpha, Dominant male, John and an independent, strong woman, Julie. The chemistry between them is amaz ...more

I am voluntarily leaving a review for a copy of this ARC.
Once again the inimitable Measha Stone does not disappoint with her gripping BDSM suspense read that I can highly recommend as a book you will not be able to put down without reading in one sitting! Julie does not have a filter and says it has it is, she is impulsive, and headstrong. Her mission in life is to protect and look after her drug addicted mom. Her mom has been missing for 6 months and all that is on

Julie is searching for her mother, who is missing for half a year now.
To blow of some steam she is going to a club, but her normal buddy there doesn’t show up and she is doing a scene with John. After it she goes home without giving him information about herself.
But through a friend of a friend John shows unexpected (from both sides) up at her place. Still Julie doesn’t want to involve him with her, since she is used to solving things herself.

Book 4 in the Owned and Protected series, but it can be read as a stand alone. It features John and Julie. Both characters made a short appearance in one of the previous books..

What I love about Measha Stone’s writing is that her characters are so complex and developed. She puts in a lot of detail and thought into the motives of the characters and their relationship.

Julie was a character who i wanted to hug and smack on the head at the same time. Something John wants to do also. She is strong

I enjoyed this fourth book in the series. This one focuses on Julie and John. A desperate search for her mother leaves Julie in more trouble than she is prepared to handle. A friend of a friend, John, steps in to protect her. Just like the other books in the series, danger sends these two on the run.

Julie and John were both likeable characters. Julie, at times, seemed to lack any sense of self preservation. It was nice to see her mature as the story went on, and really once her mom came on the s

Our heroine gets in over her head and our hero wants to save her by any means necessary. But she keeps doing the wrong things in an attempt to find her missing mother.

This is book four of the series, but it is written as a standalone. No prior reading is required.

You know how some books build, slowly drawing you into the story and the action, while other grab hold of you from the first sentence and won't let go? Well, this is one of latter. From the very first chapter, I was drawn into the the s

Julie and John meet at a BDSM club after Julie’s partner reneges. John sees her watching the play and moves to meet her. They agree to one play session and then Julie leaves. Through a weird set of “favors,” involving mothers and hoodlums, John ends up at Julie’s apartment. From there, their interaction gets more dangerous and involved.
Both John and Julie are extremely independent people. John is an exceedingly stern Dom: and Julie pushes his limits. I really enjoyed the whole premise of this s

Although this book is part of a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone. Julie, the heroine, was a character who I could empathize with, sympathize with, and yet still want to shake really hard. She is strong, impulsive and obstinate, always trying to control her own vulnerability. John, the hero, is clearly conflicted about her. He is determined and caring, and understands what Julie needs is to give up control, so that she can gain control over the chaos in her life.

I kept waiting for this book to become more exciting but it just never did. I want to like this author, I really do. Unfortunately this is the third book I've tried in the third book that has left me unimpressed. The author is a good writer however I just could not get into the characters or the stories. For whatever reason it just didn't draw me in didn't hold my interest I found myself skimming jumping past the sex scenes which are usually my favorite part, because I felt they lacked a

What do you get when you have a hot, alpha cop and a hardheaded submissive?? You get this phenomenal story! John is a cop who was asked by a friend to check in on Julie to make sure she was okay. But when he met her, wow, did sparks fly! He knew right then and there he would protect her with his life. She wants to find her Mom, who has suddenly disappeared, but Julie goes about it in a reckless way. So what is a Dom to to? You know!
