“No one needs bad people in their lives that make them question who they are.”
In 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.
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.
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.
The love story of Deacon and Molly was fun, intense, and crazy passionate. A misunderstanding leads Deacon to try to win back Molly and boy does he win her back. I ADORED these characters so much! I loved the fact that Deacon, this big badass fighter finds Molly intimidating. It makes for some interesting and hella sexy interactions between the two.
Caged is an all around intense, beautiful, and erotic love story that will have you swooning from beginning to end. I liked so much more than Unraveled.
