I was looking for a fighter romance, saw the cover and jumped right in thinking it was an mma fighter romance, boy was I wrong but right in a way, Cage was also a fighter.
A dark gritty read that actually got me emotional at some points.
The story starts with Ella seeing her little sister being taken by a stranger, a man who she follows best she can on her bike but when she does find her she finds her dead, fallen off a cliff edge and the man running away.
From then Ella doesen't speak, consumed with guilt for not getting to her sister in time.
You would think one tragedy is enough but years later as an adult she herself taken in the middle of the night, drugged and wakes up finding herself in a cell, a glass cage.
Cage who is aptly named is in the cage next to Ella, born in captivity his sole purpose is to fight and make his captor money who is also his father and now he must breed to produce more fighters.
It's gritty and raw and contains disturbing scenes but at the same time I found I was wrestling with my thoughts over a man who had never see's the outside world and knows no better he only knows how to do his father's bidding.
Before Ella was taken Cage was shown pictures of women selected by his father and Cage had chosen Ella from her picture, she was to be his prize whenever he won a fight.
From even the darkest places love can grow and that's exactly what happened with Cage and Ella as she taught him, educated him as they sat facing each other in the glass cells and when brought together to reproduce a bond was formed.
The whole scenario reminded me of Tarzan & Jane.
Caged is an intense and gripping plot and contains twists you wouldn't expect, Clarissa's creativity was captivating.
I loved it, I loved Cages purity and innocence despite the things he was made to do and Ella's strength I also admired.
Told in first persons dual pov you get the thoughts and feelings of both characters.
Caged does lead to a hea but it felt like a cliffhanger with questions still hanging about another girl in captivity Syria a blind girl who disappeared and also Cage's mystery brother who they later discovered he had who also disappeared. I'm hoping Clarissa continues this somehow so I get the answers.
A gripping and emotional dark read.
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.
