Caged (Mastered Series #4) by Lorelei James

In the searing fourth novel in the Mastered Series, following Unraveled, only one woman can set a hardened fighter free from his past.…
In order to survive a life of tragedy, Deacon McConnell embraced his roughest edges and learned to fight on the streets. Then a life-changing jujitsu seminar led by Sensei Ronin Black led Deacon to become a professional fighter. With his muscular physique and his body covered in tattoos and scars, the MMA fighter defines mean, both on and off the mat.
But everything changes when innocent Molly Calloway signs up for his kickboxing class. Molly is Deacon’s opposite in every way: She’s kind, sweet, thoughtful, and educated. After a heated argument between them turns into a passionate encounter, Deacon realizes Molly is eager to experience more, and she looks to him to take her to the darker edge of lust....
The last thing either of them expects is how deeply their lives will be thrown upside down by the passion they find together.

I just finished this book and I loved it!!! I loved this whole series and if I could have given it a higher star I would have. Lorelei James is spectacular in her story telling. Her characters are very well developed and it only takes a minute to fall in love with them. Her dialogue is sometimes witty, sometimes full of love and sometimes filled with heartbreak but it is so engaging. I never want to put her books down and I only pray that this series is not done!!!!

Caged, #4 in Lorelei James’ “Mastered” series is a gritty, raw, tempestuous, super sexy, HOT addition to this series of BDSM and love in the world of mixed martial arts competition. Deacon McConnell is a man with a troubled, dark past. From underground, illegal fighting to the dojo of Sensei Ronin Black, he takes his fury out in the ring. But he’s off his game. Because Molly Calloway’s on his mind. The attack victim’s attempts to reclaim her sense of safety and independence take her to the dojo where self-defense jujitsu classes are helping her heal. But the supremely demanding Deacon elicits a whole different kind of battle in her body. When their passion is unleashed, it’s more than either can fight and they give in to the whirlwind of kinky lust. But Molly’s reliance on trust is shaken to its core when Deacon’s secrets are revealed. She’s going to have a whole different fight if she wants to reclaim the man as hers. And Deacon’s love will have to face the test of honesty and vulnerability and he’s going to have to let the woman he’s come to want forever into his past. In all its naked tragedy and pain. Gritty, tough, with returning characters from #1 - #3 in this series keeps the book moving along at a blistering pace, filled with loyalty, sex, sensuality, humor, and extreme fight scenes that rivet the reader. While the BDSM is on the light side in this particular romance, it is on display among other couples, as well as an overall alpha male hero who may have met his match in the lush, lovely and smart businesswoman, Molly. I loved the raw sensuality, the graphic language that is right at home in this tough, no-holds-barred love story. And now I have to go back and re-read some of the others because they’re THAT GOOD.

I thought this one was the best of the Mastered series by far. The heat from these two unlikely lovers steams up the pages and then some. Deacon is a very skilled at the art of knowing what he wants and getting it. If you can only buy one book, get this one. You will not be disappointed

Great book

I love this series. Each book is great but this book was a little different for me. It was good, I just felt like it was lacking. Usually I can't put this series down but this one I was able to. I love a good hot steamy book and this one has it but I felt like that's all it was over and over again. Then when they finally start opening up its rushed through to jump right back in bed. I loved con man in the other books and just wish there could have been more of a story live than just sex ever chapter. I can't wait for the next one.

4.5 stars ... I am an absurdly crazy fan-girl of anything Lorelei James and have been for years. She is auto-buy for me no matter what the book. This series has been a really good change of pace from the Rough Riders series and I loved it!! Deacon has been an enigma from the beginning and learning more about him was intriguing to say the least. Molly's growing confidence was a great thing to see. I loved seeing their relationship blossom and grow. Seeing Deacon's insecurities made him more realistic to me. Let's be real, we like these characters not to have the same weaknesses and flaws as we do and often those are the things that we complain about in negative reviews, but honestly, they have to be human. Seeing these insecurities, especially in a man, makes me want to cuddle him right up and fix him. Such a woman. Anyway, I thought it was a fantastic book and I, of course, can't wait to see more. If I had one complaint, it would be the relationship between Molly and Amery. I felt like that relationship has changed dramatically. I feel like Amery should have been helping Molly in her budding relationship with Deacon more since she understood Ronin ... maybe that's nit picky but women vent, chat, discuss. This relationship between these two friends could be better fleshed out and more realistic.

I loved the "never say die" attitude of Deacon with regards to his love and devotion to Molly. It was raw and soft at the same time!

Readers beware and wear asbestos gloves for this one. The chemistry between Deacon and Molly is so intense that the words melt off the pages. This book is vintage James and is written to entertain. Although it can be read as a standalone, Molly and Deacon are introduced in Book One of the series. It’s a pleasure to watch the development of their relationship, not to mention the sheer joy of reading the series as a whole. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a highly erotic read backed up by an amazing story. Molly is unsure of herself in any relationship. When the super-appealing and MMA fighter Deacon “Con-Man” McConnell shows an interest in her, she’s overwhelmed. He’s also her kickboxing instructor and shows her no mercy, which makes her unsure of where she stands. Little does she know he’s as uncomfortable as she in the male/female department, so they have a long way to go in the couple’s arena? They both have issues stemming from their childhoods that tend to throw roadblocks in their developing bond. In fact, they both have problems that might derail their entire love affair. Deacon continues to let Molly down in the honesty department, which leads her to believe he’s not fully committed to her. The fantastic sex might not be enough to keep them together. Constant interference from his family causes all sorts of complications. It’s up to Deacon to prove he is sincere when he says “I love you.”

Reviewed by Francesca and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog Take a little bit of the Rough Riders’ Southern sexiness and a little bit of kickboxing and you’ve got CAGED, the fourth book in the Mastered series by Lorelei James Deacon McConnell messes up big time when he stood up Molly Calloway on his one chance with her but he had a fight to prepare for and a woman like that would come with plenty of enticing distractions. Now he’s paying for it dearly when Molly has moved on and wants nothing to do with him. Deacon must try to win her affections again but that’s easier said than done with a firecracker like Molly. Molly feels like the typical ‘Lorelei James’ heroine. She’s smart, confident and doesn’t let any man try to fool her over. So when Molly and Deacon have an argument at a strip club, you can bet that she isn’t going to go down without a fight. Problem is, Molly still holds of big burning flame for Deacon ever since she met him in a kickboxing class but the fact that he stood her up keeps her from pursuing this lust. When I mentioned the Rough Riders series earlier, I feel like Molly is the type of heroine one would find in that series. She’s got that same personality that a lot of the other heroines in that series have and when you pair her with a Southern charmer like Deacon, well now you just have a Rough Rider in kickboxing gear, don’t you? It’s a lethal combo if I do say so myself. I found that this book moved at a quick pace. Molly and Deacon have this intense lust that gets turned up fully in just the first couple of chapters. The rest of the pages are saturated with dirty talk and incredibly hot sex scenes so you are guaranteed a scorcher with this one, that’s for sure. James also explores other areas of the protagonist’s life and I think those parts were more drawn out. James likes to take her time to really flesh out her characters though and that’s why I constantly come back to her books. While they are still hot as hell, behind that there’s plenty to relate to and explore. It sets it apart – and often above- the other Erotic Romance novels you will find there. I certainly didn’t anticipate some of the twists that occur in this book, but I did enjoy reading about that. So I’d say that if you like James’ Blacktop Cowboys and Rough Riders series, this series – but most definitely, this book – is one you must check out!
