Have you ever believed you’d one day cross paths with someone who would sweep you off your feet and offer you a life right out of a fairy tale?

When you’ve spent your life hiding from monsters, it seems reasonable that you might cling to a magical, fabled romance.
I did. I found it was easier to look for the positive, to remain hopeful, and to sometimes imagine a fantasy-wor

I didn't want this story to end, especially knowing it is the last book in the Office Intrigue Series.

When I finished Their Fairy Princess, I knew I wanted Talon's story next but what I didn't know was that it would be the last of the series. When I found out I was in a panic...why wouldn't Ransom get his story too? What I didn't know at first was that this story is not only Talon's but also Ransom's story as well.

This story opened my eyes to so many different types of relationships and I ho

Book 8 and the final book in the Office Intrigue series and the first that I have read. Let me just say, I will be going back and reading the rest of this series because this story was so awesome. You will actually get 2 stories in one and it was so well written and flowed perfectly. Loved Talon, Ransom and Braelyn. This read had everything – suspense, romance and of course steamy scenes that will set your kindle on fire. You will be pulled in from page one and it will stick with you well after ...more

Owned might just be the best book Nicole Edwards has ever written. This story is about Talon and his dirty girl with scenes that will make your E reader melt. Ms. Edwards takes us back to the BDSM world and brings along some familiar faces from her past stories. Owned is the final book in her Office Intrigued series and it brings closure to everything you could possibly want. If I could make this a six star review I would.

4.5 Star Review Owned (Office Intrigue #8) by Nicole Edwards

The 8th and final book in the Office Intrigue series and it was a good book to end the series on. This is Talon, Braelyn and Ransom’s story and what steamy story it was.

We are back in the BDSM world and the scenes were intensely hot and it was good to see some familiar faces make an appearance. There was also mystery, intrigue and suspense as Ransom and Braelyn Bishop need to escape the bad guys which had me on the edge of my seat at t

WHAT DID I JUST READ...?!
THIS!! This is how you do it!!
An epic ending to a fantastic series.
This story was spellbinding and addictive as hell.
I think I spent 24 hours straight reading. I couldn't put it down! I fell madly and deeply in love with every single one of the characters.

This book/series is just one of the reasons Nicole Edwards is at the top of my MUST BUY list.

4.5 stars

While I know authors can often change their minds when characters speak to them, this is thought to be the last in the Office Intrigue series. Of course, it started out as a duet many books ago, so you never know. Although, I’d hazard a guess that some particular characters in this story will spin off into a whole new series sooner or later. This is all to say that Nicole Edwards did a fantastic job of wrapping this series up in a way that makes sense. We get to see the players that hav

Owned was absolutely the perfect book to end the Office Intrigue series. Nicole Edwards outdid herself with this massive story revolving around Talon and Braelyn and Ransom. As with the rest of this series this book can be read as a standalone but why not read the previous books because this entire series is one for the record books with the characters and story lines and the author's ability to make the reader look at a relationship that might be unc0nventional as one that is necessary and true ...more

I was given the opportunity to review Owned prior released date from Nicole Edwards.
First and foremost, I do not spoil contents as there is nothing worst than knowing the conclusion and tidbits. A description is always offered by an author.

Let’s start with the cover, Yes.... Hot, Hot, Hot. For me, a cover tells me a lot. Definitely was not disappointed, but also not what I expected. I am a fan of Nicole’s work and here I noticed a change in her writing. We read a lot about Doms/Masters - Submis

When I started reading this book, I began to have doubts that I would like it. The feminist and social worker in me balked at referring to human beings as possessions, and I was feeling unsure that I could get past that. However, as one begins reading these love stories Nicole Edwards amazing skills at portraying this concept through the eyes of her characters helped me to understand to a much greater degree than I imagined. This book is/are love stories, telling the love stories of siblings Bra ...more

4.5 Stars!! Wow!! What a conclusion to the Office Intrigue series. I have to admit that this series has not been my most favorite of Nicole Edwards, but oh, my oh, my, did she end this series absolutely perfectly. Owned was an absolute joyride of a roller coaster filled with ups and downs, twists and turns, and lots of intrigue, and yes, a whole lot of steaminess as only Nicole Edwards can write. You will not be able to put this one down once you begin it.

OH my what a way to end a series. I absolutely loved reading this book. It gave me intrigue, a bit of suspense, a lot of wondering what is in store for these characters and a whole lot of HAWTNESSS..... Nicole once again you didn't disappoint and what a great book this is.

Finally we get Ransom's story and his re-connection with Jasper is so sweetly written that you can't help but feel happy when they finally get their happily ever after. Ransom is a a strong and intense character but he's also

This has to be the most intense book Nicole Edwards has ever written. At times it took me out of my comfort zone but it's so well written and felt like so much research had gone into it to get the subject matter right I found myself truly engrossed. Although this book is BDSM it's a very specific type and I'm not sure what it's classed as but it's definitely not something I'd read about before. It's incredibly enlightening and although not something I'd usually read I found it fascinating. It's ...more

Completely enthralled.
That's how this book had me.
I mean, oh, my wow!

Mrs. Edwards has outdone herself this time with the uniqueness and unbridled, forbidden passion of this story. It was so debauched, yet sensual and romantic at the same time. A combination that only she can pull off so flawlessly. As much as I hate to see this series end, what a way to go out!!!

While I still can't fully wrap my mind around it all, I can admit it was hot AF to read. And I loved Braelyn's character. She was so l

Gay/Bisexual/Ménage: When I started this series, I wasn’t sure about the genre because it’s outside my comfort zone. This is (probably) not a book where you will relate to the book’s characters and see yourself in their world, but you need to read it anyway. If you’ve read the Office Intrigue series, this is a must-read. Nicole outdid herself with this final book, Talon’s, Braelyn’s, and Ransom’s stories.
It doesn’t matter whether the characters are M/M, M/M/F, or other. I feel these books opened

Ransom and Braelyn are brother and sister and are children of horrible parents that are into every awful crime you can think of. Ransom is eleven years older than his sister and has always taken care of her. Especially now that their parents are giving her to a monster of a man to do with her as he pleases, she is only nine.

Owned - Office Intrigue series

This is the last book of this series and it is hot, sexy and a truly great story. Actually, there are two stories in this book. Braelyn & Ransom Bishop are two siblings on the run. Because of a favour that Ransom did for a friend, their identities are discovered. Braelyn is attacked and the siblings must fake their deaths and disappear again. Ransom asked his friend Talon for a favour and Talon takes the siblings to hide at his home on Sapphire island.

Owned is the final book in the Office Intrigue series and what an amazing finish it was. This book was actually two HEA’s in one book revolving around helping Ransom & Braelyn leave their past behind once and for all. What very few people knew was that Ransom was hiding in plain sight from his past and that he took his sister with him when he left. That past has caught up to them so Ransom goes to Talon for help. Talon agrees to help and takes them to his private island while they put together a ...more

Super hot, but some parts were too much for me

No cliffhanger
Standalone though part of a larger series
Told from 4 POVs
2 stories in one
M/f, m/m, m/m/m, group, etc.

I absolutely love this author so I tend to buy all her books, even if I know they are close to the edge, or ever past what I actually enjoy reading about. This was one of those books. It was 1000% hot, but the fact it was centered around “possessions” was a little too much for me.

I won’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to

Ransom and Braelyn are siblings who have been on the run from their parents for over a decade. Ransom has protected his little sister and always wants what is best for her even if it seems like overkill at times. When the past begins to catch up with them Ransom asks Talon for his help protecting his sister. Talon agrees but it brings a blast from the past back into Ransoms life in the form of doctor Jasper. Fate has reunited them, could it be second times the charm?

Wow - I didn't know what to expect from this final installment of the Office Intrigue series, but Nicole Edwards managed to blow my mind as she dove into this complex realm of BDSM - human possession - in a way that only she can.

We finally get the intersecting stories for Ransom and Talon! Ransom and his sister, Braelyn have been hiding in plain sight when their past catches up with them, putting their lives in jeopardy. Ransom turns to mysterious billionaire Talon for help protecting his siste

Admittedly, I struggled when I started reading this. Not the consensual, various aspects of BDSM. This is what this series is. No spoilers, but I just struggled with some of the wording. Personally, it just didn't feel right, and I believed it could have been replaced, or even removed altogether, and the story wouldn't be affected in the slightest. But, I persevered, and I'm happy to say I finished the storym and was able to enjoy it. Under all the extras, this is a story about love, and there w ...more

Wow! Talk about finishing a series off on a high note! At its core this is a story about people who are looking to be accepted the way they are yet are still hoping to find that one person to love and be loved by who will own them heart, body and soul and vice versa. That is what Talon and Braelynn become for each other. Theirs may not be every person's idea of a typical fairy tale relationship, but hey it is what definitely works for them. Talon is who he is and totally unapologetic about his t ...more

Owned is the final book in the Office Intrigue Series and Talon, Braelyn and Ransom’s story is the perfect finale to this series. As always this author does a great job when she takes us to her steamy, intensely hot world of BDSM but in this story there is also some mystery and suspense which will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat throughout this read.

I have always heard the saying "Save the best for last". And author Nicole Edwards most defiantly saved up and gave us the readers the best of the best of the Office Intrigue series in the last book of the series in Owned. As soon as I started reading this book I knew it was going to be one of those books that I would not be able to put down until I read it from cover to cover. And that is the gospel truth. I opened it up and started reading and ate, didn't sleep or do much of anything else unti ...more

Ransom and Braelyn Bishop are in hiding due to their lives, more specifically Braelyn's life, being in danger. This book is really about Braelyn and Talon's relationship and also about Ransom and Jasper's story. This is the last book in the Office Intrigue series and I think it might have been my favorite. I really connected with all of the characters and it was SO HOT! This book has both M/F and M/M, which doesn't bother me, but if you are sensitive to M/M, be warned as there is plenty of it.

This booked really OWNED me from the very beginning! This story revolves around Braelyn and Talon as well as her brother Ransom. I cannot begin to say how excited I was to finally see Ransom get his story. I have gotten pieces of him through several other books in the series and it was well worth worth the wait for him to get his happily ever after. From the horror of their childhood to the fight to stay off the radar Braelyn and Ransom Bishop needed help and that came in the form of Talon. Talo ...more

Nicole has done it again and I went into this book not knowing it would be the last in the series and had no idea it was two stories into one. Braelyn and Ransom have a special bond and a secret that they have kept for years and not only did they know it was about to come to end and their lives will turn upside down for the good and Talon is at the center of this ride. When Office Intrigue started, it was a duet and it push some boundaries and took us out of our comfort zone and introduce us to ...more

I was given a copy of Owned to read and asked to give my honest opinion about the book and OMG I cannot even begin to tell you how good this book is. I found the beginning to be long and drawn out until i got deeper into the book it was needed to give the characters who they were(sometimes you dont get the whole story and this was needed to understand who they were and why they did what they did).

I was captivated from the very beginning. This is the story of Braelyn and her brother Ransom Bishop. It’s a story of horror, turned to a story of survival to a very interesting story of love. Ransom has kept Braelyn safe for the last 15 years after he saved her from a life of hell brought on by her parents. Talon is a man with a need he hasn’t filled entirely. He doesn’t know if he ever will, but one night a girl enters his life looking for her brother. He helps her out and never forgets her. A ...more
