Hot MMA fighter finds his girl! I enjoy a MMA story and this didn't disappoint! Zander and Savvy got together and stayed together. I appreciate that they never strayed!

HERO~ ahhh Zander "the hitman" Cage. What a hunky dreamboat. Sexy alpha MMA fighter and recent gym owner. I really liked him. Although it was mentioned that he had a "manwhorish" past, we didn't see him in action at all. He had said that when he first became famous, he took the women up on their offers but his mom finding him in a

This is a debut novel which is really hard to believe, I absolutely loved it. There's Savvy, her dad and best friend Ashlyn they are a lovable trio. Then you get the Cage men that can melt the panties of women. Then there's one character that needs a good beat down. There's insta-love, hot sex, jealousy, hatred and loads of sassy/witty humour in this book.

Savvy (Savannah) Jenks owns the Monkey Bars bar with her best friend Ash it is her pride and joy. Her business is

I was perfectly content with my life, or at least I thought I was. Then Zander ‘The Hitman’ Cage walked into my bar with those hypnotizing blue eyes and everything I ever thought I wanted flew out the window. Giving him a chance was the easiest decision I ever made. He ripped apart my safe little existence and took me along for the ride of my life. He was a fighter, a hero and every woman’s fantasy.

I didn’t need any distractions coming up
Savannah is going nuts with all the construction for a gym next door, it is slowing her business at the bar she owns with her best friend. Deciding to take matters into her own hands she tries to meet with the owner but is out of luck since he is not there, but she does leave him a note.

Zander sees Savannah once in a wacky way and he knows she is different than the other women he has been with. Zander is a MMA fighter known as "The Hitman" who is ramping up to his next bout for the title, he

Not a bad debut book, I enjoyed it. A little extra at times but hello! Loyal hero with minute OW drama!
I always appreciate writers who don't apply the overused, annoying OW plot in there books. There is a very small OW scene but frankly, it didn't have any weight and it was like a 0.2 sec one time thing (HALLELUJAH to that).

The h's dad was hilarious. Hero was really good, heroine though childish and annoying at times, was not a bad character.

Will definitely read the next book, it
A little birdie told me...
2.5 stars for this really good story. However, where the story was really good, the execution of it lacked.

I love reading newbie authors. I have no idea what they can do, so I go into reading their work with fresh eyes and no expectations. It's the expectations that kill books for me usually. I give newbies a lot of leeway.

Plot wise, this was a very nice story. The characters were sweet and good for each other, and the plot was plausible. I love it that it wasn't filled with angsty jealousy or

I wish there was an option to give this book more then 5 . Saying I loved this book is an under statement.
Savannah just thought she was content with life. Then one day leaving work, she sees this sexy black truck pull up, and a guy walk into the gym. Not even fully knowing what he looked like she knew there was something different about this guy. The next day "The Hitman" walked into her bar and changed everything.
Zander is getting ready for the biggest fight of his life. Never did he think he

The Book Cave  (Devon Farrow )
Savannah "Savvy" Jenks is the owner of a bar that is suffering do to renovations from next door.

Zander "The Hitman" Cage is a sinful MMA fighter who happen to be putting in a gym next to Savvy's bar.

The two share an instant connection that neither are willing to pass up.

When Savvy encounters Zander in person she thinks he is just another cocky celebrity but he is willing to prove her wrong.

Zander didn't think he would ever love anything or anyone more than his MMA career until he looks into

This book gets 4.5 stars! Oh I am loving the "Hitman" he's a gentleman and an incredible MMA fighter all in one delicious package. Savvy and Zander have this connection even before they officially meet face to face. We are given sexiness throughout this story and Zander's brothers are absolutely hilarious, Savvy's roommate and best friend Ashlyn is always by her girls side and I'm itching to know about her story. We're kept on our toes with events that take place and I love never knowing what's ...more

I'm going to be the bad guy and give this book it's first 1-star rating. This book just is not for me.

Overall, the main reason why I did not like this book was that I felt like it was badly written. All throughout... as I was reading... I had the impression that the author thought of what she would like to read in a romance novel and threw together bits and pieces of everything she liked in other books and boom! thought she had enough for her own solid story. but oh man, the outcome... well,

I absolutely loved diving into a debut book by a new author. You never know what new treasures you will unearth and if you will discover a another author to add to your favorites. Brittany introduces herself to us with a story of a hotter than hell, dirty talking fighter and his sassy heroine that is his opponent both in the bed and in all matters of the heart. I absolutely adored every minute of Savvy and Zander's song and dance with one

First off, let me start by saying the ONLY reason I'm giving this book 4 instead of 5 stars was the writing. People use contraction when they talk. It's jarring and difficult to read when the author doesn't. "He will be there" vs "He'll be there" etc. Otherwise. I loved this story. Oh another thing that was a little weird was the switched in perspective and tense.

There's a little misunderstanding in the beginning and after that these two are head over heels. I love reading about a couple battle

Caged is the debut novel by Brittany Crowley, and I freaking loved it. This book had it all. It was funny, sexy and characters that you couldn't help but fall in love with.

Savannah is the co-owner of a bar that is currently suffering due to the renovations going on next door. Zander 'The Hitman' Cage is the MMA fighter that is building a gym next door. And after receiving an email from her, he goes to talk to Savvy. They have instant chemistry and even though she thinks he is just another cocky

Caged is the debut novel by Brittany Crowley and I absolutely loved it. I was hooked from beginning to end.

You meet Savannah, or Savvy as her friends call her, who owns a bar with her best friend Ashlyn. One night they leave and she sees a stranger pull up and she is drawn to him like no other without even seeing his face. The next day you meet Zander as he's the owner of the business moving in next door. From there you can feel the attraction as it builds but will they get their HEA?

Zander and Savy have off the charts chemistry. Savy and her bff Ashlyn own a bar together. Zander opens up a gym next door to train MMA fighters in. Really enjoy getting to know all of Zander's brothers as well in this book. All us ladies need a Zander in our life to woo us off our feet. Can't wait for the next book.

Great love story with the perfect mix of angst, flirty banter, laugh out loud moments, great chemistry and a dodgy ex thrown into the mix too. Thoroughly enjoyed Brittanys story telling ability while we follow the journey of our Bar owner Savannah and the MMA fighter Zander who is renovating the business premises next door to hers.
5 stars for perfect escapism!

Zander and Savannah are business neighbors who meet and fall for each other. When you think it is happily ever after time the trouble starts. This is my first time reading Brittany Crowley and I was given this to read for a honest review. I was kept captivated by a strong story, emotions and humor to start. I cannot wait to read the next story.

Caged is Brittany Crowley's debut novel but you never would've guessed it. We all need a Zander Cage in our lives can you say *swoon*. There's not much I can say without accidentally spoiling it, so I'll keep it simple. You really need to pick this book up and meet Zander and Savy their chemistry is off the charts. I can't wait to read more from this new author.....

This is Brittany's debut novel and what a wonderful job she had done!! Because I don't want to give away any spoilers I am going to keep this short and sweet. Zander and Savvy have chemistry that is off the chain and you will not be able to put this book down. There is drama, laughter, tears and some very sexy times ahead. So sit back with a cup of tea, some biscuits and enjoy!

This is the debut novel for author Brittany Crowley. Just out of the gate, she did a great job! Sports Romance fans will be thrilled with the detail to MMA that she gives. Romantic Comedy readers will also be laughing out loud with this one.

Savvy and Zander seem and unlikely pairing at first. She is a blue collar bar owner. He is a famous MMA fighter headed to the Championship fight. Money is not a problem for him. But Savvy doesn't know who he is from Adam and Zander finds that

I super duper loved this book! It's funny, romantic, thrilling, riveting, and more. I liked that there's some suspense, mystery, and humor mixed in the romance of MMA fighter Zander and bar owner Savvy. These two were sexy and awesome together and their love story was certainly hot, eventful, memorable, and not for the faint of heart. I liked the supporting cast of Caged as well, most especially Savvy's BFF and business partner Ashlyn. But OMG, what an epilogue! It was simultaneously ...more

I had the honor of reading this little gem when the betas were reading it. And let me tell you Savvy and Zander have stuck with me. Brittany did a fantastic job of not only building awesome, hopefully returning, characters but also giving us some seriously sexy moments that were FIRE HOT. The relationship between Savannah and her BFFL was like...GOALS.

Honestly, this book was such a good read that I blew through it with a HEA that left me wanting more. I don't know what your standards are, but
