I have no idea what to write, what to say. How do I even start a review when even after putting this novel down, breathing is hard and my very soul has been touched in a way that words just simply seem useless. But I know that I need to give you guys something...... So here it goes........ Reading both Caged and Uncaged being released for a limited time, I cannot express to you how much these novels impacted me not only psychologically, but emotionally.  In brief we meet Cage. Held captive his whole life, all that surrounds him is cold concrete and glass.  Held prisoner by the one person that Cage trusts unconditionally.  It's all Cage knows. The outside world doesn't exist in Cage's life. No color, no ocean, no blue sky. Just sterile walls. Cage will obey to anything, no matter the consequence, he doesn't know any different. But there is one thing he wants. No there is one thing he needs. And he will have it, no matter the cost. He will have her no matter the cost. Her name.......Ella. Welcome to Cage and Ella's world.  A world so dark that light is simply unobtainable.  A world of torture that pain becomes normal living. A world of starvation and thirst that it's hard to think. A world of depravity. A world of torment both emotionally and psychologically.  A world where hope just simply doesn't exist.  But does it? Can hope be found? Can trust be given? Can freedom be obtained? Guys these novels simply broke me. My heart ached from beginning to end. The ache I felt took my breath away. At times it left me feeling completely empty, but on the other side of the emptiness it left me feeling at peace with a calmness that I can't describe. Cage my heart was with you from the very start, and you will stay with me always. Ella, I have nothing but love for you. To Clarissa.....Thank you for sharing their story with us.  And i'll end my review by asking people this.... Have you ever stopped just to look at the color of the grass, stood on it with bare feet? Have you ever stopped what you were doing to just look up into the sky? Have you ever just stood in the rain and felt every drop touch your skin? You should, because you never know when it will be taken from you. A HUGE 5 star read.

Inhaling both books in the duet within one day, I think it’s safe to say I have found a new absolute favorite by her – oh my!

Inhaling both books in the duet within one day, I think it’s safe to say I have found a new absolute favorite by her – oh my! Adulting was just not possible while more pages of this book were waiting for me. I adore this woman’s writing – dark or not –, but with this one she hit it right out of the park. He’s a savage. A barely tamed beast who has been living in a glass cage his whole life, born to obey, to fight, to kill, to win. That’s his whole world. He knows nothing else. Not what’s right or wrong, what boundaries are, how to read or even what it feels like to have the sun kiss your skin. What he knows though is that he wants Ella. That girl with the long white hair that he saw on a picture. Years ago, Ella lost her voice after tragedy struck and took something much more precious than that. They call it selective muteness – she is only able to talk to the people she trusts, and to this day, this only includes her parents. And then she is taken – abducted and thrown into a glass cage next to the brute of a man that is Cage. Her purpose one only – to copulate with him and breed future fighters for their captor… Two people who find each other, who fall for one another in the direst of situations. And somehow along the way, Ella is even able to find her voice in front of Cage. They are as different as can be, yet so perfect for each other. Their love is pure and sweet – and everything that it shouldn’t be given the circumstances. Cage – all caveman, rough and possessive, and yet incredibly empathic, protective and even sweet. A child’s heart trapped in a grown and very dangerous and manly body. A walking contradiction, yet the perfect package. So innocent … yet not at all. My heart beat for him from the very beginning. Ella – pure, beautiful and broken, but also so strong and determined. Those two grow so much throughout the course of the two books, the scenery changes, and so do they. It is beautiful and powerful to watch. Seeing them both adapt in different ways, always being exactly what the other need. My heart ached for them, beat for them, broke for them. A captivating – no pun intended – and riveting story from beginning to end, and I am glad to have accompanied them on their journey. Clarissa Wild, thank you for giving us this untamed and wild beast of a man. I cannot wait to read more about Lock! But let me be clear: Cage is *MINE*!!!

That beautiful girl from the picture on my prison wall. Now she’s finally here, sharing a cell. So close. So hard to resist. But one thing’s for sure… Even if she doesn’t know it yet, she’s already mine. Cage was like a little boy in a grown and sexy man-body. He was incredibly naive. He didn’t understand what most of us consider normal expressions or colloquialisms. He wasn’t socialized, he had never even been outside. He didn’t understand the world around him because he wasn’t a part of the world. He lived in a caged environment and the only thing he knew was to fight… to the death. He had never had a friend and he had never known affection, however, when given the chance to meet someone, to have someone of his very own, he chose Ella. But when Ella is taken and wakes up to her new life in the cage, will she ever be able to forgive and love Cage the same way that he loves her? The ARC copy I received had both Caged and Uncaged. I personally thought this was awesome because I didn’t have to wait to continue this story and it read like one book. I did think it was going to be a dark read, and while it may be uncomfortable for some, it really wasn’t that dark at all. However, I’m a huge fan of the dark and twisted, so my opinion may be a little off. Both Cage and Ella are prisoners of a man who sees them as nothing but profit. Cage really doesn’t know any better and Ella has a hard time adapting to the life of a captive. Somehow, amidst the chaos, pain and devastation, a strange sort of love starts to bloom between the two and Ella vows to stop at nothing to allow them both a taste of freedom. The freedom to live and the freedom to love. While I very much enjoyed Caged, I felt that some parts were dragging in Uncaged. I also wasn’t very happy with the events that surrounded Caged. He was an unfortunate victim of circumstance, but instead of being treated as a victim, he was criticized, ridiculed and vilified as a monster. And because he didn’t know any better, he believed that he was unworthy. I loved this character so much and wanted better for him. I also wanted Ella to be a better person overall. I wasn’t a huge fan of hers but I was definitely a fan of their love. I recommend this story to those who enjoy romantic suspense with a touch of the dark side. Release Date: September 26, 2017 Genre: Romantic Suspense POV: Dual - 1st person Heat: 4.5 out of 5 Type: Standalone duet

In one of the cells is the beautiful 'beast' of a man who she can't keep her eye's off of. Cage is, well Cage is kept in a cage. Anyway he is kept in his cage until it's time to fight again and after each fight he wins his reward, except Cage needs a new reward so his captor lets him choose a girl he likes from a group of photo's. The thing is Cage thinks there is nothing wrong with any of this as he was born and raised only knowing the life his captor taught him, and only what his captor wanted him to know which wasn't much. Cage is completely dumb clueless to the outside world and most things really but he did know what a clit was so that was pretty incredible as many educated men don't have a clue about that. None of that really matters though with a body like his, doesn't hurt that his dick is................. So this read as a ridiculous OTT read to me, I hope that's what the author was going for. The sex scenes were hot but a lot of the plot I found had holes. This book thoroughly entertained me hence the 4 stars but it was in a 'boy this is ridiculous' kind of way, none of it seemed realistic. I have read this author before so I knew what to expect but I would suggest going into this expecting twisted and OTT and you will not be disappointed. 〰️ Reviewed on behalf of the 1-Click Addict Support Group 〰️

My lungs burn when I breathe through my mouth. A metallic taste lies on my tongue, and I swallow to make it go away, but it lingers. Everything hurts. My head. My mouth. As if I’ve been hit a couple of times, but I can’t remember a thing. And when I open my eyes, I’m still so dizzy; I can barely make out a thing. It’s dark as night. Not a single light surrounds me except the one at the far end of the room. The room … with no windows. No plants. No sunlight. Nothing. All I can see is a gray concrete wall surrounding me. I try to get up, but my feet don’t feel like they belong to me, and I struggle to get anywhere. But I don’t give up. I keep crawling across the floor, hoping to make it to the light, just so I can see where I am. But I can’t. Not because my muscles gave up. But because I physically, literally can’t. Between me and the light … is glass. I turn around, trying to find a way around it, but there’s no crack. Not a single one in all the glass surrounding me. Not even at the top as I try to stand on my toes. Nothing … but glass. A cage. My heart stops beating. The panic rises again, bubbling to the surface. I open my mouth and scream, but no sound comes out except for a faint sigh. Just like always. My voice was taken from me a long time ago. And I know no matter how hard I try that no one will hear me. Where am I? Who was that man? Where did he bring me and why? With my back against the glass panes, I sink to the floor. I can still barely make out my environment or feel my own skin. I’m numb from the drug he gave me and numb from the shock. But I still don’t cry. I close my mouth and stop breathing. I stop moving. Like a rock, I stay put and pretend I’m not there. Why? Because something across the room, not far from me, still captures my attention. Something lurking in the dark behind the glass. I’m not alone.

    It's rare I give 5 stars to a book cover but this one hits all the right notes for me. A good representation of the hero. Fantastic composition and title work as well. My ARC copy included both CAGED and UNCAGED. I am not sure if they are going to be released as one long book or as a duet, but I have included a separate review for both here.

CAGED -- 4-STARS I enjoyed this one a lot. The writing was great. The pace was perfect. The plot engaging and kept me turning the pages. It had no OW/OM drama. The sex scenes were hot. I didn't find this one dark in the least, but as you know if you follow my reviews I read and enjoy some seriously dark books, so do keep that in mind. This was light on secondary characters, but the ones that we get glimpses of were interesting, and there was one, in particular, I hope we will see more of. Both main characters were likable. The "romance" if you will was a bit insta, but I couldn't help but feel for Cage and fall in love with him. Ella was an equally enjoyable character. Lastly, this one ends on a cliffhanger which leads us into the next book. UNCAGED -- 3 STARS OK, so I didn't love this one as much as I did book one. A lot of my positive feelings from above remain the same for this book. That said, I thought this one dragged a lot, and I started to lose interest a bit as the book went on. On top of that, I found certain situations to be a bit...how do I say this? Farfetched I guess. Especially surrounding Cage. I can't explain any better than that without out giving examples and thus giving away spoilers. Suffice it to say that they bugged me enough to pull me out of the story. So there you go, a two for the price of one review. *lol* Book one gets two thumbs up from yours truly while book two still gets a positive one thumb up.

I just found by the second half of the book, it became very unrealistic. Normally, I am pretty lenient with unrealistic, mainly because I am in my fantasy land of whatever I am reading!!

Seriously, there were some very explosive moments in captivity with these two, and they shouldn't be overlooked!!! Other than that, this was a good read; but not a wow one for me!

It was the kind of thing I'd expect from a kidnapped/Stockholm syndrome book. Ella experienced something tragic when she was young which caused her to have selective mutism. Admittedly IDK much of anything about selective mutism, but Ella seemed to overcome it rather quickly in captivity. It would have made more sense to me if she were able to speak to Cage but not anyone else. Cage had been captive for his whole life and knew nothing about the real world. He didn't always do what was right but he didn't know any better. The second half of the book was so fucking ridiculous. For this type of novel I'm willing to suspend belief to a certain degree. The number of things that didn't add up were astounding. Warning: these are major spoilers for the second half of the book. Read at your own risk. (view spoiler)[Ella woke up in the hospital after escaping, but she was in the hospital near her home. Later on it was explained that she had been found about 8 hours away from where she lived. They would have brought her to the nearest hospital. Besides they didn't know who she was until she woke up so they wouldn't have been able to move her to one near her home anyway. Ella easily found the place where she had been held. You'd think a random place in the middle of the desert wouldn't be easy to find especially with incredibly vague directions. Cage and his dad went to the hospital after Ella escaped. Since they were both covered in blood and had been injured, the cops would have been called, which didn't happen. The hospital didn't even inquire about Cage's name or what happened to him. Cage went to find Ella, but he didn't know where to go. All he knew was that she lived near the woods, which could have been a hell of a lot of places. So once he found a forest he decided to live in it since he didn't fit in in society. Somehow he knew how to live off the land although he'd never been outside until recently. Then Ella happened to find the woods where he was. The chances of that happening were so slim it was completely unbelievable. After their happy reunion they went to Ella's home, the one she had been kidnapped from. Apparently they never gave any consideration to the fact that their captor was still alive. They would have been easy targets by going to the first place he'd look for them. Also Ella didn't ask about nor was she informed by police that her captor's body hadn't been found. Eventually Cage spotted their captor. Immediately they went home, which was the stupidest thing they could do. Of course the captor was there. Yada yada yada he died. They call the cops and they arrest Cage. So Cage, a man who had no understanding of the real world especially in regards to his rights and legal issues, went with the police. Ella told him to go but never once said don't speak to them until the lawyer gets there, which would have been the smart thing to do. Not only do they charge him with murder but also rape. They had the videos from when they were held captive of them having sex. If the police were going to charge him with rape why'd they wait until then to do it? Anyway he gets off on the charges, which wasn't even remotely realistic especially since Ella's testimony didn't paint him in a positive light. On top of all of this ridiculousness, Cage adjusted to the outside world fairly well. I expected him to be more traumatized, but nothing bothered him as long as he had Ella. Love saved the day! I call bullshit. (hide spoiler)]

His glass prison has always been Cage’s reality that and the ring he fights in. This life is all he’s ever known and until Ella’s arrival, he was content just following orders. He’s almost like a child in his basic understanding of how things work and his lack of normal life experiences. He has no reason to question or fight the status quo accepting everything he’s told at face value until now that is. Ella’s presence changes everything for him, moving his goalposts entirely. So this was initially interesting but things did start to get a tad unbelievable after Ella escapes the compound. I definitely preferred the first half of this to the second and it was actually the second half of this story that pulled my rating down it was just so farfetched. Still, I did finish and enjoyed it to a point once I managed to suspend my disbelief slightly but unfortunately there was just something missing for me with this one. It was OK and at times I liked it, I just didn’t love it. Reviewed By Beckie Bookworm https://www.facebook.com/beckiebookworm/ www.beckiebookworm.com

I was hoping it would be something completely out of this world that would literally blow my mind to pieces, but it was just okay. Cage and Ella are being held captive. Cage was born and raised in captivity forced into the fighting world. A world that he now only knows. Ella was chosen by Cage as a prize for when he wins the fight. There were times I rather enjoyed Cage and Ella's romance. For example when she would draw scenes of the outside world on paper and tell Cage all about her life. But then there were parts that were completely unrealistic and a little to far fetched. and I get this is fiction, but I love dark romances that have the ability to make me second guess the world and think to myself 'damn, you know this could truly happen'. This one however, did not do that.

    This author always creates surprising plots with a catch, or more. Caged features two tortured characters who find bliss and life force in each other. The female character has a strong will and fights for freedom until the very end like a real heroine. I didn't quite know what to expect from this story, but it's a little devious, a little hot and very entertaining. It's written in a casual style with a few interesting sentences here and there that make food for thought and great quotes.

Now, she finds herself trapped for unknown reasons along with a beast of a man who hungers for her touch. I liked this male character because he harbors an innocence that matches his upbringing away from many things we consider basic, but he's also dangerous in strength and purpose. There is enough heat between the characters to enhance this dark romance, but there is also a great deal of monsters, horrifying secrets, frustrating attempts to escape and passionate feelings. I wish I'd known this story was the first part of two, but after the shock, I'm curious about the fate of these two characters who suffer blood, pain and isolation together. Now it's time to be Uncaged.

    5 stars!! another excellent book by Clarissa Wild, i love both Ella and Cage. The epilogue nearly made me tear up, a beautiful ending to wrap up the journey of them both. i love how both Cage and Ella refused to give up on each other even in the outside world :( it was an emotional read too, especially the part where they (view spoiler)[ finally found each other!! so much emotions and feels in that scene!

    Gahhh! Clarissa Wild's books are legit like kindle crack to me. You know the minute you read them you will get sucked right in. They are dark, sexy, sometimes uncomfortable but ALWAYS delicious. This is exactly what we had with Caged. Ella and Cage were sexy and hot. I thought he was caring, sexy and growly. What a combination! I could not get enough. Cage is a savage.

He was born and bred to be a fighter and was locked away waiting for his mate. Enter Ella. A victim of a childhood tragedy, Ella is selectively mute and a victim of her own guilt and memories. But when she is kidnapped to satisfy the whims of a madman and become the plaything and mate of Cage nothing could prepare her for what happens. GAHH! This novel was sexy, erotic, disturbing and so addicting. I was absolutely hooked and now I can't wait to see what happens after that ending!!! All in all, this was a great novel and I look forward to reading Uncaged and additional books from this author in the future! Bravo! 4 stars! ~Ratula

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I almost rated this 2 starts just because of the 2nd half of the book. The 1st half was great. We have Ella who is abducted and held in a glass cell where she meets Cage, a man who was literally born and raised in his cell. There is a little drama back and forth as things are reviled, and there is a budding naughty romance. I throughly enjoyed that half. The 2nd half “uncaged” was so ridiculous I skimmed about half of it.

I enjoy a far fetched tail... look at my reading list... but there comes a point when you should have just ended the book while your ahead. So the escape was fine, but after the escape, not only does Cage never get questioned by the cops when he is found, but he magically is pretty much adjusted to the outside world perfectly. This is a man who had never been outside!! Never seen the sun, a tree, a car.. nothing! And so he starts boxing to provide for Ella and then a few weeks pass and surprise his father is back and wants Ella and the baby... that all goes in the shitter when Cage kills him. Not the cops want him for murder and for getting Ella pregnant while she was captive.Then the trail starts like a week later and it lasts a day and then he’s found not guilty.... P...lease... I’ve watched a few episodes of NCIS and other cop shows and I could put together I better timeline for all that... I was truly hoping the 2nd have of this book would be a deep emotional read about Cage adjusting to everyday life and the struggle, maybe some ptsd... but no it was crap and ruined the book for me. Sorry my reviews is probably a little rushed... I should be working right now 😉

First off, let me state that there should be a TRIGGER warning for this book. Since there is not, let me insert one here for you. Yes this is a dark book that tried to be a shade of gray to light, but it doesn’t until the end. There is nonconsensual sex in this book. I do not care that the h ends up liking it or whatever else, she was forced into it. I will get more into that in my review. BUT know that there that this happens more than once. I want to say that this book stayed with me for awhile, but I can’t say it’s for the right reasons. I really can’t see how it keeps getting high stars, other than the writer is promising and the concept was good. The more I thought about this book, the more I realized that I had a longer list of issues with the book than love of the book. ** I will state that this will contain some spoilers as I just don’t see a way to review it without any. (This will also include the trigger scenes mentioned earlier, which I will clearly mark in case someone wants to jump to that.) It starts off innocently but then the h is kidnapped and thrown in a cell. She’s a selective mute and can’t speak. Next to her is a very big man who just stares at her. We see her thoughts and they are predictable, which is not a bad thing. Moving forward we find there is a captor, the man in the next cell and then another blind female. The captor is completely delusional and does bring up the terror of human trafficking, as well as underground fighting. The man in the next cell ends up being the H (I know right?). The other girl in the cell, well I don’t know because for someone who’s being abused (both physically and sexually) she seems pretty accepting/not scared (dare I say chipper) of her fate. The POV is told from both the H and h, with most focus on the h. I won’t say much about the side characters, because besides the villain they really play no role in this book. The H in the first chapters has picked out the h. Literally. Points to a picture and says kidnap her cuz I want her. Then doesn’t understand why she doesn’t want to be there. Why she’s not impressed with his fighting skills. Why she doesn’t want to have sex with him. Literally this is all he thinks about. You find out that he has been a prisoner for quite a while and there is a twist. The twist is important as it explains why he won’t try to escape. Going back to the h. She’s justifiably scared at the beginning, determined to get free. Somewhere along the line she starts to trust the man who stares at her. Why? My best guess Stockholm Syndrome. She knows that he picked her and put in that situation, but doesn’t seem to care. *spoiler* She starts talking to him, but the first time isn’t because she’s endeared to him. **TRIGGER** He wins a fight and she’s his reward. She’s still scared and is forced into a room with him. She’s a virgin and because of his stunted mentality, he literally thinks she will just fall on him and be thankful. Does she have a choice? No. She’s threatened. Let's just say things get mouthy. After she is punished for not giving it up. The second time is not much better. She’s drugged, degraded, strapped down and tells him there are “alternative” ways to go about sex. Does she have a choice? NO again, she’s threatened and guilted and then set up. END TRIGGER*** A normal person would be angry or violated. The h? She ends up cuddling with him and sleeping. I have a HUGE problem with this because what sexually abused victim snuggles with their rapist? Then telling the whole world she loves him and that she wanted to. Uh what? They fall in love over the series of days kept in the cage. But really that’s the author trying to make their relationship sweet. Some of it is, but would have been better if written in at a later time, not while in captivity building on nothing really. It snowballs from there. The author tries to make the relationship endearing, but I couldn’t see it. You find out the endgame for the sex and it does add to the story. **spoiler** when they get out the issues with this book really start. Her finding him again? Impossible. In the middle of some remote woods and he has no idea what’s going on around him, but makes it to somewhere close? Uh ok. Then there’s the paparazzi. Now you see them, now you don’t. They seem to be there when it adds to the story, then magically disappear when the H and h need space. Too inconsistent. The love story/ending? I can only shake my head. Then there’s his “career”. Plot hole. It’s mentioned and then basically gone. There are so many things mentioned in the book, one can only assume there will be a book 2. If there is, this reviewer will not be reading it. I was going to give this book 2 stars because the author has talent. The storyline and plot in this book would have made a better thriller than a romance novel. If it had been taken in a different direction or maybe developed over time that made sense, it would have been better. I’m taking a half star away for romanticizing the nonconsensual sex that happens between the two. If that’s your thing, then you won’t be bothered by it, but as for me I was. This book stayed with me for the wrong reasons. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

She hasn’t had an easy life, her past holds a tragedy when she was young to which she has never forgotten and has never forgiven herself for what happened.

She loves what she does and is awesome at her job. She hasn’t had an easy life, her past holds a tragedy when she was young to which she has never forgotten and has never forgiven herself for what happened. The only people Ella will talk about with what happened is her parents only, other than that, she will not talk about it. In fact, Ella cannot talk above a whisper—so she uses sign language to communicate but because she cannot talk, that makes it hard for her to trust people and be around others. Then there is Cage—OH MY Cage-- He has always been inside in this caged world that his father put him into and then left him in. Cage doesn't know how to read or write or really do anything unless his father tells him to do it. The one thing he can do is watch Ella and that isn’t something he was told to do. He falls hard for her and wants her bad. Cage wants Ella- He already knows it deep inside that she is his, no matter what anyone says to him. There are dark themes that run in this book and I have to say…WOW. I didn’t know how Ella was going to survive but Cage…wow. He wont let anything happen to her—unless he is the one doing it to her . There is so much happening in this story and then sudden surprise cliffhanger had me screaming at my kindle going NOOOOOOO!! I cannot wait to read UnCaged. This is going to be one awesome duet. Cage and Ella do make a surprising couple but not in a bad way. I do need to say there are some dark sexual themes and if dark ,twisted and sensitive may upset you, then this may not be something you would want to read but you would be missing out on an awesome book. Cage is raw and sensual and loyal towards Ella. Ella is beautiful, mute and sensitive. Her quietness hides a strength – these two don’t make sense but they really do. And I have to say, someone better get Graham and put him down…he needs a hurtin. Cant wait for book 2!! My Rating: 4.9 stars ***** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

    Mine, Mine, Mine, YOU - ARE - MINE!!! This book has left me with mixed feelings. I really appreciated how quickly the story pulled me in from the outset until around 25% way through when the mystery behind the story was revealed, then, for some reason, my interest started to wane slightly. I hadn’t realised that this book was written in two parts: Caged and Uncaged, and for some reason, this gave the story a slightly disjointed and mixed genre feeling.

I really appreciated how quickly the story pulled me in from the outset until around 25% way through when the mystery behind the story was revealed, then, for some reason, my interest started to wane slightly. I hadn’t realised that this book was written in two parts: Caged and Uncaged, and for some reason, this gave the story a slightly disjointed and mixed genre feeling. Gone was the darkness of Caged and in came your quintessential second-chance romance with Uncaged, with the odd hurdle or two along the way. I have to say though, Cage, and his limited knowledge of life outside of his cage, is extremely cute and his romantic connection to Ella is very sweet. Caged was literally about a man called Cage who was kept in a cage and his fellow inmate is the abducted Ella. Having lost her sister in similar circumstances as a child, although with a much quicker and more tragic ending, Ella, who is now a selective mute, finds herself caged in with Cage and another girl, who mysteriously disappears during the book with no hints at a reappearance or an explanation, yet. I say yet because Caged seems to lead into the next story, Locked. Although not marketed as a sequel, having read a goodly number of the author’s books to date, it is not uncommon for stories and characters to become intertwined, although Locked appears to be very closely aligned to Caged I may be wrong. Whilst it is not clear that you need to read Caged before Locked, there is an unwritten assumption that you will. Nicely housed in the Kindle Unlimited library, this option does provide hesitant readers, like me, an option of sampling the story without the frustration of it becoming another costly DNF. Whilst I find myself moving away from dark “romance” stories now, I do enjoy the author’s writing style. That said, the story behind this book, which on paper *boom, boom* should sing to me, barely made it above a whisper in my ear. I found myself speed reading the story as I was able to second guess what was going to happen next, something which rarely happens with this author’s books. Now, the darkness is dark, it is slightly disturbing and has a number of triggers so please bear that in mind. Forced submission occurs as do other non-consensual sexual activities although Ella seemed to get over her fears very quickly after seeing Cage naked! When it becomes clear what their captor ultimately wants from them, sensibility seems to go out of the window and is quickly replaced by a crazy acceptance. Whilst Cage and Ella’s developing romance was sweet, it was heavily jaded by the disturbing scenes they experience en route towards a HEA. I doubt I will read Locked, but I’m sure it will be another success for Clarissa Wild. We are proud to provide honest and unbiased reviews written from the heart.

Imagine that all your life you didn't have the chance to see the sunrise, you couldn't see the rain or even know the meaning of the word "freedom". This may be absurd, but it is from there that we know our male main character. Ella Rosenberg lost her little sister on a beautiful sunny day while they played outside. A stranger appeared, took little Suzie and when Ella managed to find her, she was dead. From that day, Ella started to have a kind of selective mutism. She learned sign language. She tried to take a normal life. Years ahead, not knowing why, at first, she is taken from her house to a glass prison. Why? She was the biggest prize for the greatest fighter there. Cage - this was the name by which he was known - had fallen in love with Ella through photos, and now that she was there, a few yards away, he would do everything possible and impossible to keep her, to save her and to love her... forever. The book contains graphic scenes, but more than detailing what happens to the characters, the most important is the subject that the author brings up: there are still many unknown cases of slavery. Ella finds herself involved in a case far more complicated than she might suppose, and over time, she learns that being chosen had ulterior reasons. Cage is as much a victim as Ella. Together, perhaps, they can put an end to that absurdity. There were more people involved, there was a very elaborate plot, and when feelings collide, there is a need to make the right decision at the critical moment. There is romance, but do not just stick to it. The book is intriguing, it's emotional, it's so much more than just a cover with a sexy man. 5 stars

Cage has never known life outside the cage. He has been there as long as he can remember. He doesn't know how to read or write and has never see the sun. These two get thrown together. Will they ever get free? Why is Ella being forced to stay with Cage? Why was Ella chosen to be put into the cage? I will tell you that I loved both of the main characters. Ella is strong, hard headed, determined. Cage is everything. He is protective, loving, and kind that is unless you are in the ring against him. The side character Bo I just wanted to junk punch him. I am not even going to start on Cage's Dad. Loved, loved, loved this story! He is the storm in my calm world. The thunder in my clouds. The sun to my darkness. Right now he is everything I need to know

Unknown to her she has been picked and once taken captive she realizes there is so much more to Cage than anyone could ever realize and although it is a painful and twisted experience she works to show Cage the world !!

It was an amazing bonus to have Uncaged included in this book so it reads as a complete duet without any cliffhanger and as HEA as a CW story can get !! Cage was born into the world of captivity with his crazy and twisted father as the only family/love he knew. He was trained to fight and never shown the outside. He was given women and never shown the right way to treat anyone. Once the girl of his dreams shows up he quickly finds out his father has kept him from so much. It is hard to imagine beauty coming from anything so dark and twisted yet you will find in the little things a story of love and hope. Don't get me wrong there is way more dark than good BUT you do get to know Ella and Cage and the light they can create together. There are more than a few twists and at times you wonder if things will ever work out or if Cage will ever see the outside world but hang tight it is worth the ride !!

    Meh. This was so insanely bad. I hated the plot, the heroine was a nutcase with serious Stockholm Syndrome. She had a hard life and getting captured and forced to "have a baby"/sleep with a handsome, muscular hot guy in a cage, certainly didn't help her. The erotic moments were okay, I guess. If you are able to overlook the crazy scenario over all and the pure ridiculousness of them falling in love(when you are tortured/forced into having sex with a complete stranger.

Like when you start a bad movie, but still want to know how it continues...something like that happened to me, while reading this. I can't really say, that I enjoyed this read. I dont even know how I finished it. Somehow I felt obligated, since I received a free kindle copy in exchange for my honest opinion. Well, here it is: this story is bull and a waste of your time.

    Fantastic, wonderful, and just emotional. Those are the words that kept coming to mind while I read this book. I felt so emotional for Ella and everything she has and will go through. Cage has no fault of anything he has done or will do in the future because of the way he has grown up. Graham is in charge of everything that goes on in the compound and Cage has just happened to live in that compound all his life.
