Book Review: Cage

Cage (Corps Security #2) by Harper Sloan: **Warning** This book is intended for a mature reading** Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister's shield against the world... until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around... until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control? Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing she will ever do is ask for someone else's help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength? The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes an unexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on another member of the Corps family. All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing threatens anyone Greg loves again.

Whairigail's thoughts: **4.75 Bad-ass, Alpha, Hot-Hot-Hot, Suspense filled Stars**

"I come face to face with Cage. Uncle Greg Cage. Well, these are certainly not familial feelings running through my veins right now"

Warning: This is the second in a series and whilst it could be read as a stand alone, I HIGHLY recommend reading these in order (noted below)

Locke Awaiting Release
Cooper Awaiting Release

I seen the release of Axel and bumped it up my TBR list and whilst I liked it, I didn't love it.

So I didn't immediately go and buy Cage on its release day.

To quote the Lovely Julie Roberts...

"Big Mistake. Huge."

From the minute I picked this up, I couldn't put it down again. It held me from the word go.

We first met Greg Cage in Book #1 and without giving spoilers, I don't want to go into too much detail but he is one of the good guys. Although in Book #1, he is more the Strong-Silent type. In Book #2...

Holy Sh*t Batman - Hello Alpha Male!!

Melissa is wonderful as a female lead - she is strong, family orientated, hard working, not too whiney, sexy and quite funny. One of my favourite lines was:

"I have to deal with another crayon not bright enough for the box"

These two develop at a comfortable rate throughout the book - there is no dragging of the will they/wont they scenario but they also don't just hop into bed together.

We hear plenty from all other characters in Cage - we find out how their lives are progressing and get just enough teasers as to what might go down in the next few books without making it blatantly obvious.

The only reason I have subtracted 0.25 stars is this. The ending - although it was hold onto your pants this is scary stuff gripping - was a little too far fetched. Just a teeny-tiny bit.

The only positive thing that came from waiting to read it was that Book #3 came out within days of finishing - woohoo!

A really well written instalment of the Corps Security Series.
