REVIEW - Caged - Clarissa Wild

TITLE - Caged
AUTHOR - Clarissa Wild


They call me savage. An untamed beast.
I was born in the cage. Born to fight. Born to carry its name.
Locked away, I’ve spent years waiting for my mate.
I'm pent up with need. Brimming with desire.
All I want is her... 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.

Jennifer's Review

Oh My Goodness. What did I just read??? Caged is one dirty and raunchy novel. I absolutely loved it! When it says this is a dark book, it is not exaggerating. If you don’t like dark reads with sexy alpha males and feisty females, then this book is not for you. However, if that sounds like paradise to you, then this is a MUST READ. 

This book is amazing. I cannot say too much about the plot as I feel it will give too much of the story away, but lord have mercy did this book throw me through a loop. I feel this book, while being dark and sexy, also leads the reader to start questioning how they view life. Things are so much different in this book than one would expect. Do you take things are face value or is the line between right and wrong more blurred than you once realized? This book has you questioning your own beliefs on the world.

The characters in this book were amazing as well. The main male is hot and sexy. I loved his character, even if at times I wanted to smack the living daylights out of him. He really has some things to work through and come to terms with. If he can make it through, this will be beneficial to him. The main female has her own issues to work through. She was damaged by an event that occurred in her past and has yet to heal. Then this situation arises. Will this be the reason for her healing or will it drive her further into despair?

Man oh man is there a ton of heat in this book. There is a reason I used raunchy to describe this novel. This book has dark elements to it that leads to some explosive scenes between these characters. While some of these scenes might be considered taboo, they are written extremely well and add a lot of depth to this novel. I think the author nailed this aspect of the book.

This author is an amazing writer. This was my first book by Clarissa Wild and I am disappointed in myself for waiting this long. This author has a way of writing that puts you right in the middle of the story. I felt heartbreak right along with the characters. I also felt their heat and anger. It takes an astonishing author to be able to put their readers in the front row and make them feel like they are living the story as well. 

In conclusion, I loved this book. I plan to go back and read more from this author because her reading spoke to me. I feel she did a wonderful job exploring this subject. I commend her on taking the chance to write such a brilliant story about a dark and sometimes taboo topic. Thank you for making me reflect on my own feelings and explore my own opinions on this subject.
