Release Day Review: CAGED by J. A. Belfield

It's Hollway Pack time!  **fan girl squeal**  Woot woot woot!!!
If you hang out here at Known to Read, you likely already know
I'm a bit obsessed with Belfield's Holloway Pack.

And it's finally time to talk about the latest book in this awesome sauce series ....
Yay!  Woo hoo!!!  **cartwheels**
So without further ado, here it is in all it's yummy glory..........

Caged (Holloway Pack #3)
by J.A. Belfield  

If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.

For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.

Not this time.

Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.

What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one.

If he survives.

Because even Ethan’s not sure he’s strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself.

Especially one hell bent on exposing who and what he is in the name of sport.

My Review:

This is yet another amazing journey into the world of the Holloway Pack.  This time everything is told from Ethan's POV which gives us a chance to really get to know him and it also keeps the suspense at an all time high since we don't know what's happening with the rest of the pack, which totally killed me (in a good way).  From the get go the suspense is crazy high; I held my breath almost the entire book!  It's a slow simmer at first; you keep waiting for the inevitable to occur, knowing any moment we are going to be slung into the heat of it all.  While we are twitching in our seats from the suspense, an incredibly beautiful --and steamy-- romance is interlaced into the story. Once we hit the major action of the story, it's an all-consuming, can't put it down ride!  The intensity and frustration of Ethan's feelings really shine through and puts us right in the heat of it all.  On top of all this awesomeness, we also have a widening view of Belfield's supernatural world and are introduced to some incredible new characters that I hope we will see more of in future installments.  

Really, my only complaint was in the ending where the irrational behavior of Ethan's new love is a bit much for me to buy and then their reconciliation could have been more romantic.  Neither issue took anything away from this great book (hence the five star rating).

So to sum it up, READ THIS NOW!  It's freaktastically awesome!
