Assaulted, murdered, and buried in a shallow grave. That’s how I would’ve ended up, if not for him.
A hitman sent by the mob to find and kill my ex-boyfriend, he’s rude and bossy, but he saved my life. He locks me in a room and tells me his name is Cage. Think about the irony.
Stuck with him and his demons, I learn more about him than I’d like to know. But it’s the things I learn about myself that scare me. I find out that one look at his work-of-art body is enough to awaken wicked fantasies deep within me. I realize that I’m capable of falling for a rugged brute in a matter of days. I learn I like it rough.
He’s haunted by his past. I’m terrified of the future. I know he will save me from the thugs that are hunting me.
But first, I have to save him from himself.
CAGED is a standalone, full-length novel. No cliffhanger. Guaranteed HEA. 18+
WHAT I THINK
I received an ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review.
So then. I read the first pages on Wattpad (I think that’s what it’s called) and was so excited to read romance book first time in a very long time! A little over three years ago when I was on mother’s leave, I only read romance books and usually cried my eyes out, lol.
This book was about Jenna, the ex-girlfriend of Anthony Hunt who stole from the mob and Cage, the hitman sent by the mob to kill Anthony Hunt. Cage saves Jenna one night and after that locks her in his apartment. Their life together isn’t actually all roses and joy but they still develop something between them, yet Cage still keeps her locked in his bedroom and tries to find Anthony.
I liked and didn’t like Jenna. I liked the fact that she was trying to get out of there and fought back. But then again I was a bit irritated that she tried it once and then it was all fine and she didn’t want to leave Cage. There were a few moments were I was like “C’MOON WOMAN! You’ve been there days and yet you stopped fighting and all is good? He did threaten to kill you, you know?”. Though she is a very strong woman, not any whiny little helpless girl.
Cage is *sigh*… I loved him okay? There’s not much to say, okay. He was just, ahh, give him to me now please!
The plot was predictable, if you’ve read a lot of romance books, you’ll know what I mean. But the sex scenes though! It wasn’t all awkward and that. It is very well written and damn it was getting hot in here! (This has totally nothing to do with this but I was just wondering while reading. It’s usually always mentioned in sex scenes that “he’s very huge dick” or some other way. There isn’t any books talking about small dicks, is there? This is stupid, I know. I was just wondering..)
Okay, back to the subject. Though the plot was predictable, I think it is still well written book. Special points for the sex scenes! I truly enjoyed reading them. Even though it took me very long time to read this (I have very little time to read nowadays) I really enjoyed it. There wasn’t any thoughts of putting it down to DNF shelf. But the thing that kind of left me hanging and thinking was that Cage never actually told about his past to Jenna. You would think that’s something you’d share with the person you love. She knows he has bad dreams and all but still he hasn’t told anything.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes alpha protector romances but if graphic sex is something you don’t like reading, then you shouldn’t pick this one.
All in all, I give this book a total 3.5 stars!
