Series: Bound By Cage
I was perfectly content with my life, or at least I thought I was. Then Zander ‘The Hitman’ Cage walked into my bar with those hypnotizing blue eyes and everything I ever thought I wanted flew out the window. Giving him a chance was the easiest decision I ever made. He ripped apart my safe little existence and took me along for the ride of my life. He was a fighter, a hero and every woman’s fantasy.
I didn’t need any distractions coming up on the biggest fight of my career, but fate had other plans. Savannah was a breath of fresh air and the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. I never planned on meeting her, I also don’t plan on letting her go. I’ll do whatever it takes to show her that I’m more than just the name, and will stop at nothing to make her mine.
4.5 Stars to Caged (Bound by Cage #1) by author Brittany Crowley.
Savannah (Savvy) and Zander…….
Brittany Crowley is a new author for me. And as a matter of fact, Caged, is her debut novel. I can honestly say I am a fan. This book has hooked me in anticipation of the rest of the series. I adored all the Cage brothers. Zander, Josh, Jayden, and Kyle. Each brother is lovable with a unique personality. These men are sexy, alpha, and loyal. In addition, they can be romantic and sweet; the perfect all-around book boyfriend.
Savvy co-owns the bar next-door to the new gym Zander is renovating for MMA training. Zander himself is a professional, successful MMA fighter with wealth and celebrity status. Not to mention he is gorgeous and sexy!
Before Savvy and Zander meet officially, they have a brief moment in which a connection is formed. They have some seriously strong and magnetic chemistry. That particular moment in the book was hilarious. In fact there are scenes in this book that had me laughing aloud. There is one scene in particular that is a favorite standout of mine. I won’t spoil that for you however I will warn you that when the Cage brothers are together, prepare to swoon, smile, and laugh.
Another point I loved about this book was the family dynamics. The Cage family was very close. Savvy and her father had a close relationship as well. Savvy’s best friend and business partner, Ashlyn, were more like sisters. I want to point out that Savvy’s father was a fun-loving, witty, and outrageous character. He was hilarious!
Among the sexiness and humor in Caged was some suspense brought on by and ex-boyfriend of Savvy’s. He was certifiable to say the least! The suspense addition to the storyline played out well. The book was steady-paced and I didn’t find any flaws in the author’s storytelling. The only slight disappointment I experienced was that the majority of the book was in Savvy’s POV. I wished there were an equal amount Zander’s. That said, I’d like to add there were a lot of sexy times. Those intimate moments with Zander and Savvy were so sexy and erotic. This book had a great balance of emotions.
Savvy’s best friend, Ashlyn, and Zander’s brother, Josh are the next couple featured in the Bound By Cage series. I am really eager to read that one which is titled, Rampaged. I am happy to say that there are two more Cage brothers after that and I am looking forward to those as well.
