He’ll train her to lure another man. She’ll lure him instead.
When interior designer Eliza Ballas accompanies a friend to New York’s premier BDSM club, she’s taken aback by the sheer want that overruns her body—especially when a sexy Brit assumes Eliza is adept at dark, sensual arts. If she’s going to play, she’ll need an erotic education, and she knows just the man to teach her how to submit…
Oliver Preston isn’t one to turn down pleasure, but Eliza’s his sister’s best friend, and he’s torn between a sense of duty and his rock-hard need to find out if she tastes as delicious as he’s dreamed. Unable to handle the thought of another man owning her body, he draws Eliza deep into his world of exquisite pain and pleasure.
He has three lessons to instruct her. Three lessons to drive them both to the brink of ecstasy. And three lessons before he must give her to another man…if he doesn’t lose himself first.
"One thing that I admire about Tessa Baileys books are that she sure can write a Alpha Male like no other. She puts enough possessiveness and jealousy in her leads that just wants you wishing they were for real. Her heroines are always strong and vulnerable, and you just want to be them or be their best friend. Because what I have learned from all of Tessa’s books is that the best friend always gets a hot alpha of her own. ;)" - Cocktails and Books
"Ms. Bailey can write a dirty talker. ( This is not a new development) Not only that, she can make me LAUGH. I feel like I’m talking to a friend when I read the things her characters say in their heads and the conversations they have with each other. I often find myself laughing one minute and swooning the next. .Not only did Ms. Bailey hit this one out of the park, she broke the bat, then set it on FIRE." - Straight Shootin Book Reviews

“Just two consenting adults getting it on, passing on some gold old BDSM knowledge, nothing to see here. Moving right along.”
It would be the enactment of a fantasy, something they would wink-wink-nudge each other about next time they were in the same room. That's what he'd thought. Expected. He hadn't anticipated her to reach inside his chest and rearrange everything.
3.5--It's Called a Conversation--Stars!!
This one could have been a lot better....if the whole plot hadn't been centered around a lack of communication!
Oliver and Eliza are old friends.....Oliver is king of the one night stands and Eliza is two encounters shy of being a virgin. They run in to eac... ...more
So I think everyone pretty much knows I have a complete infatuation with Tessa Bailiey! I one-click her more than anyone else...I know exactly what to expect with each book...I just sit back, cold drink in hand, and let it go! But HOLY HELL!
I do not think that this woman can write something that... ...more
Another H*O*T story from Tessa Bailey! Oliver Preston is YUMMY. We first met him book one of the Serve series, Owned by Fate, as Caroline's playboy brother. (Each book, though, is a standalone story, which is another reason why i love this author.) Oliver is growing tired of the same... ...more

I love Tessa Bailey's Line of Duty series so I had high hopes for her new Serve series which is set around a BDSM club. Unfortunately I wasn't a huge fan of the first book but that was more down to the fact that I hated the heroine than anything else so I took a second... ...more

Tessa Bailey has brought another sexy addition to the Serve series with Exposed by Fate and whilst it's predecessor, Owned by Fate had the edge for me (Jonah, need I say more), there's no denying it was a hot yet heartfelt read. And who falls the hardest is unexpected...

Eliza is Caroline's best friend. Caroline's brother, Oliver, has always known that Eliza was off limits - until Eliza needs a little help learning the BDSM world so she can hook up with a sexy British guy that frequents the BDSM club. Oliver agrees to teach Eliza some kink but they both agree to... ...more
Holy ghost on a bicycle. HOT doesn't even begin to describe this book. Delicious would be an understatement. Opening line and then boom, I'm a goner. New York City’s Most Eligible Bachelor is sure worth the wait. xo
Another great book. Dang it, Tessa. You really ROCK. Thanks for creating Oliver 'P... ...more
Reeeeeeeally not a fun thing when you're trying to land the guy you've had your eye on for a while and your best friend's older brother who's basically YOUR brother (yeahhhhh keep telling yourself that) shows up and calls you by an embarrassing pet name in front of The Guy.

This is the second book in this wonderful new series by the talented Tessa Bailey and it is just as phenomenal as the first one. If you like your romance books with a touch of BDSM and a whole lot of alpha male then this is the one for you.
This book is about Ol... ...more
I loved this book. Tessa has done it again. Taken a well-used trope (best friend's brother) and kicked it up a notch or ten. Her characters are complex, damaged yet strong, and sexy as hell. This book gave me the "feels" and it's hard for me to put that in to words. Oliver was dominant, yet so vu... ...more
I know I should have read this author way before this, but I think I was saving my first taste for this series. I. am. in. love. In love with these characters and in love with this authors writing. There are not many books I would re-read but Exposed By Fate is one of them. Tessa Bailey is now on... ...more

Y'all, I think I have a new favorite Tessa Bailey book. Exposed by Fate takes readers back into the world of Serve from Owned by Fate, but this time it's all about Caroline's best friend, Eliza, and her brother, Oliver. And oh my god, did I love t... ...more
In this scorching second book of the Serve series, we are treated to the story of Oliver and Eliza. Eliza has always been off limits to Oliver as his sister's best friend, but finding her in his BDSM club means all bets are off. When she agrees to let him teach her the ways of a submissive, he fi... ...more
I didn't love this one nearly as much as I loved the first one. Maybe I just have a thing for Jonah. Who knows
But this review isn't about Owned By Fate so I'm gonna put all thoughts of Jonah Briggs to the side.
oh my god. I didn't really have much thought on Oliver from the first bo... ...more
The first book of this series, I didn't fancy much to the point of marking it as a DNF. This book, on the other hand, did a lot better than the first, but everything about this book was just instant.
Eliza, as introduced in the first book, is Caroline's best friend and also had her "sec... ...more
In the second book of Tessa’s Serve novels we meet Oliver and Eliza. I have to say that I enjoyed this book so much more than the Owned by Fate which was the first in the series. When a book makes my heart go pitter patter I know it is going to be good. Eliza wants to learn the ways of BDSM to im... ...more
Leave it to Tessa Bailey to add a humorous bend to her dirty talking heroes! I loved Olliver and Eliza. The push-pull between them keeps the reader on the edge of her seat. The heat shimmering between them keeps you squirming in that seat, as well. The glimpse we get of Oliver in OWNED BY FATE le... ...more
3.5 Stars but I decided to round up.
I think I liked the first book in this series better. Oliver is the rich playboy that isn't taken seriously by his family and Eliza is an interior designer who wants to explore submission. Eliza wants Oliver's help preparing for a date with someone else.
