New Release – Review of Cage by Harper Sloan

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

Cage by Harper Sloan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mamma Mia, Greg Cage can be my super hero anytime. This was such an emotional rollercoaster of emotions. Two grieving souls that find out they have a common bond that ties them together and finally start the healing process but not before fate throws some more heavy duty stuff their way to conquer.

When Greg Cage lost his sister to domestic violence many years ago he took on a crusader persona to always protect women. He found another soul sister in Isabelle but now that she is married to one of his best friends who is as protective of her as he was, he’s feeling at a crossroads in his life. Then he meets Melissa Larson and his own thoughts of settling down with one woman and one day having his own family comes front and center. But Gage is still carrying the heavy burden of guilt over his sister and he has a ex-bed buddy that doesn’t want to let him go.

Melissa Larson knows grief well too. Her sister was also in a domestic violence marriage that ended tragically and left her young nephew an orphan. She is the sole provider of income for herself and her mother who at the moment has custody of him. She puts up a front of being strong and not needing any help and doesn’t have a high opinion of men. When she meets this beast of a man called Cage she’s attracted and only agrees to a one night stand. She had no clue that once a man like Greg Cage gets hooked on you it wasn’t going to be easy to walk away from him.

This story is multifaceted. Not only is there the hot smoking love story between Greg and Melissa, there is plenty of angst that is thrown their way from a variety of sources along with one huge secret Greg is keeping from Melissa.

There was plenty of face time from the rest of the crew from Corps Security and plenty of angst still going on between them. I’m ready to fall in love with the next in line of the Corps men as I have already with Axel and Cage.
