BOOK REVIEW: CAGED BY ALASKA JONES

33239498
Assaulted, murdered, and buried in a shallow grave. That's how I would've ended up, if not for him.

A hitman sent by the mob to find and kill my ex-boyfriend, he's rude and bossy, but he saved my life. He locks me in a room and tells me his name is Cage. Think about the irony.
Stuck with him and his demons, I learn more about him than I'd like to know. But it's the things I learn about myself that scare me. I find out that one look at his work-of-art body is enough to awaken wicked fantasies deep within me. I realize that I'm capable of falling for a rugged brute in a matter of days. I learn I like it rough.

He's haunted by his past. I'm terrified of the future. I know he will save me from the thugs that are hunting me. 
But first, I have to save him from himself.

*Thanks to the author for an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

description

I am a huge fan of alpha males and dangerous heroes. I have a soft spot for tortured heroes. So when I stumbled across this book and read the synopsis, I was like-*OMG I have to read this...as in, now!!*
  
description

So before I could stop myself, I approached the author with an offer to review the book in
exchange of an ARC (call me greedy, but I can do anything for books).

Caged had an interesting beginning.The story starts with JENNA(the heroine) waking up in a strange room and remembering the incidents of the previous night. Her ex-boyfriend ANTHONY(hunt) was involved with mafia and kind of cheated them, so the mafia was behind him.

And in order to get their hands on Anthony, they tried to kidnap Jenna but CAGE(the hero) saved her.

Cage is a hitman and is assigned with the duty to find Anthony.In order to do his job he saved Jenna from the other men and kidnaped her himself. You might be thinking that now he will torture the innocent girl--BUT no, nothing of this sort happens. Cage is really soft at heart and is enchanted by jenna's beauty.He would do anything to save her from others and most importantly from himself.

description

Remember--This is not your typical dark romance in which the hero tortures heroine. if you are looking for a dark romance then this book is not for you. 

Jenna is a strong willed woman and does not take Cage's shit. She argues with her on almost everything which makes Cage kind of frustrated. Their arguments are quite fun to read and adds humour into the story. Cage is Jenna's kidnapper but Jenna cares for him in spite of that. Cage is also attracted to Jenna and has a soft spot for her.He want to keep her safe no matter what. But Jenna is stubborn and won't leave him alone. Jenna knows he is haunted by his past and wants to save him from himself.


"HE NEEDS ME MORE, THAN I NEED HIM"

And at last they give into the temptation and accept their love for each other.

description


The story was interesting in the beginning but became somewhat boring towards the end. The characters were not well developed and I was unable to connect to the characters. But overall it was a good read. Cage never told Jenna about his past and she never ever helped him to heal and forget his past. So the tortured hero vibe was missing.


If you like mafia romance which is not too dark then this book is for you, go for it.

Cage- 4 stars
Jenna- 4 stars
Plot- 3.5 stars
Sexual Tension- 4 stars
Storytelling- 3.5 stars

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

REVIEW: You Came Like Hope by Jyoti Arora

Peehu:
“I heard them mourn my death. I lay in the next room. Motionless, silent, and staring at the ceiling.”

Adih:
“When it comes to a broken person, some of them are expert at blinding you. Spend an entire evening with such a person, but you may still not know how he is crushing inside.”

Uday:
“Who would say no to him? He is smart, intelligent, super handsome, rich, suave and sophisticated. He’s perfect!”

Pooja:
“Pooja gave no explanation. She asked no forgiveness. She just arrived in his home, resenting him for being her husband.”

Arunav:
“He had smiled as if nothing was wrong.
He had behaved as if he still had his dreams and hopes.
He had pretended as if it didn’t hurt.
But it did.”

Does Destiny hold the key to our happiness?
Is it always the feeble that is the victim?
Love can be the embrace of heaven. But what happens when it unleashes hellfire?

Lose yourself in the intense narrative of You Came Like Hope as it unleashes a rollercoaster of emotions, uncovers some bitter truths, challenges wides…

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families. 

Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca. 
Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power, but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile.

In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster within; a monster who ca…
