Review: Owned: A Ripples in the Status Quo Story by R. Phoenix

Owned: A Ripples in the Status Quo Story



Elias Ivers was promised a slave recently captured from the Rebellion, and it would have only been a matter of time before the witch broke a mere human. His new pet would have been a beautiful match to his already enslaved werewolf, and the potential information gain was not something he was willing to pass up. However, when Malkhaz takes what should have rightfully been his in a single hasty decision, Elias is determined to make the vampire pay. No one denies an Ivers witch what he wants–especially not someone who’s little more than dirt beneath his expensive shoes.

(This dark erotica novella caters to those who cheer on the villains as they pursue their goals…no matter what it takes to get there. This includes Very Bad Things as well as Very Sexy Things.

Those with sensibilities will likely be offended and want to attack the author with flaming pitchforks. If this applies to you, save an author. Step away from the button.

Lightheartedness aside, this is dark erotica, and it does contain elements of depravity and cruelty that will be offensive to some readers. Please proceed with caution or skip this read.)


Please note that the RISQ world has little place for humanity, and as a result, content in these works may be offensive to some readers. They can be read as stand-alones or as serials in a larger story.

The suggested reading order for the RISQ books is:

1. Bought. [Dark Erotica]
2. Ravel. [Romance]
3. Recoil. [Dark Erotic Romance.]
4. Owned. [Dark Erotica. Follows events in Bought and Recoil.]



Book #4 of the series and I’m learning that, the more books I read of it, the more I love it. This one, so far, has been my favorite. It was great.

It started when Recoil left, which was perfect because I wanted to know what would happen. It had a nice sense of continuity, which wasn’t present between Ravel and Recoil.

Now, I know I said that Khaz and Noah weren’t my favorite characters from the series, but I have to admit that, this time around, I was feeling more attracted to Kahz than before (Noah still wasn’t right for me). His mixed feelings were so nice to read, it was good to see the internal struggle he had. I really loved that part.

This book was hard to read for me because I had a hard time trying to decide who I wanted to get what he wanted. In one side was Elias, so amazingly wicked, the reason I got hooked on the series and who make me smile just to think of how wicked he was. And in the other was Khaz, who I just learn to love and whose feelings were so very sweet, and I wanted him to be happy. It was so difficult for me, which make me loved the book so much more.

I felt the plot on this one was better than the other, it brought more surprises. It was very hard to put it down, so exciting, I even manage to go through the puppy play without too much issues about it and I would read it again if it was part of other book in the series. It finished with a lot of possibilities, and there’s already a book #5 out, so I’ll be going to it as soon as I can.

I Received copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
