Take a little bit of the Rough Riders Southern sexiness and a little bit of kickboxing and you ve got CAGED, the fourth book in the Mastered series by Lorelei James Deacon McConnell messes up big time when he stood up Molly Calloway on his one chance with her but he had a fight to prepare for and a woman like that would come with plenty of enticing distractions Now he s paying for it dearly when Molly has moved on and wants nothing to do with him Deacon must try to win her affections aga Take a little bit of the Rough Riders Southern sexiness and a little bit of kickboxing and you ve got CAGED, the fourth book in the Mastered series by Lorelei James Deacon McConnell messes up big time when he stood up Molly Calloway on his one chance with her but he had a fight to prepare for and a woman like that would come with plenty of enticing distractions Now he s paying for it dearly when Molly has moved on and wants nothing to do with him Deacon must try to win her affections again but that s easier said than done with a firecracker like Molly.Molly feels like the typical Lorelei James heroine She s smart, confident and doesn t let any man try to fool her over So when Molly and Deacon have an argument at a strip club, you can bet that she isn t going to go down without a fight Problem is, Molly still holds of big burning flame for Deacon ever since she met him in a kickboxing class but the fact that he stood her up keeps her from pursuing this lust When I mentioned the Rough Riders series earlier, I feel like Molly is the type of heroine one would find in that series She s got that same personality that a lot of the other heroines in that series have and when you pair her with a Southern charmer like Deacon, well now you just have a Rough Rider in kickboxing gear, don t you It s a lethal combo if I do say so myself.I found that this book moved at a quick pace Molly and Deacon have this intense lust that gets turned up fully in just the first couple of chapters The rest of the pages are saturated with dirty talk and incredibly hot sex scenes so you are guaranteed a scorcher with this one, that s for sure James also explores other areas of the protagonist s life and I think those parts weredrawn out.James likes to take her time to really flesh out her characters though and that s why I constantly come back to her books While they are still hot as hell, behind that there s plenty to relate to and explore It sets it apart and often above the other Erotic Romance novels you will find there I certainly didn t anticipate some of the twists that occur in this book, but I did enjoy reading about that.So I d say that if you like James Blacktop Cowboys and Rough Riders series, this series but most definitely, this book is one you must check out Check out my alternate review here at Fresh Fiction This review was originally posted on Cocktails and Books.Caged is the 4th book in the Mastered Series and I have throughly enjoyed the entire series Lorelei James is a master of the alpha male and exceptionally strong female leads as well Deacon and Molly do not disappoint I have enjoyed these two since we were first introduced in Bound Mastered 1 Deacon is an instructor at Black Arts and a MMA fighter Molly is a well educated, thoughtful, sweet person who was attacked and signed up This review was originally posted on

well Deacon and Molly do not disappoint I have enjoyed these two since we were first introduced in Bound Mastered 1 Deacon is an instructor at Black Arts and a MMA fighter Molly is a well educated, thoughtful, sweet person who was attacked and signed up for kickboxing to fight back against the fear that was choking her Deacon is tough on her when they met in Bound but it is just what Molly needs to face her fears.When we start Caged, the entire Black Arts crew has changed and evolved over the 4 books Deacon is no longer teacher kickboxing Molly has battled through her fears from the attack, is in fantastic shape, and the heat between her and Deacon has been slowburning for awhile Deacon even goes so far as to ask her out but stands her up Molly says she is through with Deacon but she can t get him out of her mind Deacon has never explained why he stood her up and he can t get Molly out of his mind either.Molly and Deacon constantly bicker and go back and forth They both are damaged from their pasts Their back stories make this book fly by I loved seeing Deacon s sweet side especially since he is alpha to the core The way he takes care of Molly and encourages and builds her up is beautiful Every girl wants a guy who is capable of taking care of them both emotionally and physically The true surprise was the unraveling of Deacon s past I honestly didn t expect some of the plot twists in his story and I loved reading it.If you haven t read the other books in this series, I would recommend picking those up first You can read this as a stand alone but you need to meet all the characters from the other books first This is an easy world to get caught up in Lorelei James is a master at world building and I thoroughly enjoyed all the Mastered Series This book was reviewed by a

wrong this is still a nice book, it didn t have the usual intensity I ve come to expect from Mrs James Having said that, I m still looking forward to the next installment in the series, a new book from Lorelei James always goes to the top of my TBR pile
