The first rule is obey…and she already broke it.
Francesca “Frankie” De Luca always pays her debts. Even when it means stepping inside Serve, the sensuous Manhattan club that caters to particular adult desires. For Frankie, it’s a taste of something she’s always wanted—and never received. Until a sharply dressed Brit orders her into his room, and instructs her to undress before delivering the carnal punishment she so desperately needs…
She wasn’t the woman Porter Evans was expecting. Not this wild thing with the pale, silvery eyes. And such cheek. But she violates Porter’s strict rules of control. Temptation is a dangerous thing indeed. Yet everything about Frankie cries out for schooling about the tantalizing interplay of pleasure and pain. So Porter offers Frankie a deal she can’t refuse—and the only thing she owes him is submission…
"Overall a sweet and hot read, and I recommend to lovers of hot contemporary romance." - Geeks in High School
"I freaking LOVED this book. It will definitely be joining my "reread" collection." - Megan Loves Books
4- 4.5 Stars
Nothing about this was familiar. Nothing controlled or simple. Just messy, chaotic need, and relief was short-lived because he already wanted her again. And he couldn't foresee a time when he wouldn't.
“Driven by Fate” is the fifth book in the “Serve” series and like its predecessors it can be read as a standalone.
Francesca 'Frankie' De Luca is a tough girl. She’s not very girly girl, she plays hockey with her guy friends and she drives a cab for a living. The book starts off with Frankie goin... ...more

If this is not a good reminder to pick up any of the Tessa Bailey in my to-read pile, I don’t know what is… HOLY SMOKIN’ HOTNESS!!!
For some reason, this one worked for me on so many levels.
For starter, I got Frankie, a heroine who’s funny, witty,... ...more
I loved that book and to think I put it away for so long because some of reviews suggested Porter is far from usual Bailey heroes.
It was great story, the only problem I had was that Porter never really shared the issues of his childhood with Frankie.
And what was up with Frankie not even accepting... ...more
Whoaaaa. I have just two words to emphasize the best parts of this book: Dirty talk.
I read a lot of romance, but this book impressed me in its ability to make me blush! Porter is a British dom who meets Frankie at Serve when she decides to sneak in and pretend to be a sub for a few minutes. As yo... ...more

Driven by Fate is the fifth book in the Serve series (the third by Tessa Bailey as the other two were written by Katee Robert) and although we've briefly met both of these characters in a previous instalment you don't actually have to read this series in order to be able to enjoy each story.
First of all, let me say how much I enjoy Tessa Bailey's writing style. Her dialogue is always original and funny and wow, the dirty talk. Filthy, filthy goodness. She completely shattered the proper British stereotype with our hero, Porter. He is a very naughty boy indeed. Not proper at all.
"Reach back and feel the stiff cock you've earned. Put your greedy hand on it. Worship it."
OH YES!!! Tessa Bailey is the QUEEN of the durtyyy talking hero and she did not disappoint with Porter! Great chemistry and emotion as well as a strong, sassy heroine and one hell of a sexy, dominant Brit... ...more
The darkness in Porter with his dominant nature make him a force of nature that you can not fight.
Damn...the author has drawn me into her dark web and I'm unable to untangle myself from the need to read more.
Frankie has her own strength in her and I love it but .....I love that she feels free eno... ...more
Driven by Fate is Ms. Bailey's third contribution to the Serve series for Entangled Publishing's Brazen imprint, and like the two that precede it, I was blown away! Her signature "dirty talking hero" in this book is a smoking Brit with a need to control who takes a street-wise taxi-driving heroin... ...more
When I first got a preview of Frankie's character in an earlier Serve volume, I was not impressed and thus not looking forward to this installment. She turns out to be pretty likeable though.
Porter is to die for. Seriously. He hits the buttons. Alllllll the buttons.
The story is not bad. I cried.... ...more
Driven by Fate was exceptionally good and I just couldn't put it down. It was intense, hot and sexy and I just wanted more. From beginning to end I was engrossed and just couldn't get enough of Frankie and Porter. These two were hot together! But not only that, they just had great chemistry toget... ...more

Tessa Bailey continues to work her magic with two delightfully combustible personalities who come together by chance for an erotic adventure into the thrilling domain of dominance and submission. The only question is...who is submitting to whom? ...more

5 hot burning stars!
Tessa Bailey knows how to set you on fire on cold days! The moment you met Porter, your panties will leave. You won't need them anymore. He's a force of nature, dominant to the bone, always in control, strikt rules. But his past had tought him to build up walls and that no one... ...more
Another great read from Ms. Bailey! I liked that Porter wasn't her typical hero. He seemed to have more depth than most. And I don't know what it says about me that I like gruff, emotionally stunted heroes who think they aren't good enough for the heroine but are secretly obsessed with her, but i... ...more
And there it is... I was not kidding when I said Tessa Bailey had a gift for writing super hot stories. My favorite books in the Serve series are the ones she wrote, they're just soooooooooooo good.
I hope she'll write the next one too :D
