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.


Lorelei James gives us yet another MASTERPIECE in CAGED, book 4 in her Mastered Series! I devour these books over and over again. You can’t beat James’ writing. It’s full of passion, intensity, and emotion. The alpha male MMA fighter in this book will make your pulse pound and your heart melt. CAGED is a book you will want to savor. You will want to take your time, take it all in, because you will NOT want it to end.

The love story of Deacon and Molly was fun, intense, and crazy passionate. A misunderstanding leads Deacon to try to win back Molly and boy does he win her back. But Molly is definitely no push-over. No way, James makes her heroines with some extra sass and I freaking LOVE it! CAGED is a love story about a man proving his worth and winning back the woman he wants as HIS. He will get down and dirty if he has to. To hell with the fact that he might come with some baggage. Molly IS his, and he will do what it takes to have her in his bed and his heart.

I ADORED these characters so much! I loved the fact that Deacon, this big badass fighter finds Molly intimidating. It makes for some interesting and hella sexy interactions between the two. A title fight…psssh! That ain’t nothing. Winning Molly back…no that is scary! They give each other the feeling of worth which adds to the sweetness factor in this yummy erotic tale. CAGED is an all around intense, beautiful, and erotic love story that will have you swooning from beginning to end. I LOVE the MASTERED series. Each one keeps getting better and better!

About Lorelei James

Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary erotic western romances set in the modern day Wild West and also contemporary erotic romances. Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closet full of cow girl boots.

Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
