REVIEW: Caged by Lorelei James

Caged is No. 4 in James' Mastered series and is probably my favorite thus far.   Molly and Deacon have been dancing around each other in a frustratingly tense denial of their attraction for way too long.  Fans of the series will be thrilled when these two finally get together.  James certainly doesn't disappoint with the erotic factor.  Get ready for plenty of steamy moments.

I adore Molly.  She's come a long way from when we met her in book one.  She's learned how to overcome her fear following her attack and how to take charge in all aspects of her life.  It was interesting to learn about her family background and the areas where she's still vulnerable despite the changes she's made in the past two years.

I also really like Deacon.  While I love Ronin and Amery from Bound and Unwound, I get tired of Ronin's silent, broody attitude. Deacon reminds me more of other similar new adult and erotic fiction titles featuring the broody bad boy with deep scars and secrets.  A few that come to mind are similiar fighters like Travis Maddox from Beautiful Disater/Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Remy from the Real series by Katy Evans or even the guys from Jay Crownover's Marked Men or Welcome to the Pointe novels. I prefer Deacon to any of these other protagonists with the exception of the lovely guys like Rule, Jet, Rome, Nash, Rowdy or Asa as written by Crownover. --[Seriously, if you haven't discovered and devoured anything and everything by her, then go do so ASAP!]-- Deacon's backstory and learning to deal with guilt and moving on was poignant for me as a reader.

This book has a bit more of an erotic new adult vibe than the others, mainly because of the age of these characters.  Great plot, character development and writing from Lorelei James. I just adore her and since I've gotten a chance to meet her, she'l just lovely in person too!

Final rating: 5 out of 5 stars
