** Review by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **

Guys......I am at a complete loss here.
I have no idea what to write, what to say.
How do I even start a review when even after putting this novel down, breathing is hard and my very soul has been touched in a way that words just simply seem useless.
But I know that I need to give you guys something......
So here it goes........

Reading both Caged and Uncaged being released for a limited time, I cannot express to you how much these novels impacted me

Clarissa Wild went dark again – and I loved it! Though love seems like too weak of a word. With CAGED, she stunned me, rendered me breathless and craving more. Inhaling both books in the duet within one day, I think it’s safe to say I have found a new absolute favorite by her – oh my! Adulting was just not possible while more pages of this book were waiting for me. I adore this woman’s writing – dark or not –, but with this one she hit it right out of the park.

4 I Need A Cage Stars

Ella suffers a tragedy when she's young, it devastates her to the point she stops speaking becoming a selective mute.

So Ella wakes to someone putting a rag covered in chemicals over her face and when she wakes again she is some weird cage/cell that's joined to other cells. In one of the cells is the beautiful 'beast' of a man who she can't keep her eye's off of.

UNEDITED EXCERPT:

ELLA

When I come to again, the first thing I feel is a roaring headache. My lungs burn when I breathe through my mouth. A metallic taste lies on my tongue, and I swallow to make it go away, but it lingers. Everything hurts. My head. My mouth. As if I’ve been hit a couple of times, but I can’t remember a thing.
And when I open my eyes, I’m still so dizzy; I can barely make out a thing.
It’s dark as ni

This was a 3 - 3.5 stars for me...basically the first part of the book is; "Caged" and that was worth a solid 3.5 starts...but the second part which was called "Uncaged" was in the low 3's. I just found by the second half of the book, it became very unrealistic. Normally, I am pretty lenient with unrealistic, mainly because I am in my fantasy land of whatever I am reading!! This time though, there were more than a few "eye rolling" moments for me, and I just couldn't over look them!!!

IDK why I keep reading Clarissa Wild novels. They always sound great but rarely grab me. This book was divided into two parts. The first part was okay. Nothing about it stood out. It was the kind of thing I'd expect from a kidnapped/Stockholm syndrome book. Ella experienced something tragic when she was young which caused her to have selective mutism. Admittedly IDK much of anything about selective mutism, but Ella seemed to overcome it rather quickly in captivity. It would have made mo

Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Caged' by Clarissa Wild is the story of Ella and Cage. Their story is just "WOW". It is a dark romance with some taboo/trigger scene. For me it was a book that takes you into their story and you don't want to put it down. Ella has had a tragic past that she doesn't speak about. In addition, she isn't able to speak with words as she should and does sign language. But now someone has taken her and put her in a cage.
Cage has been in a cage for as long as he can remember. Cage has not been school

2.5 Stars

When it comes to novels with prisoner/captured theme I look for specifics. I look for story lines that have never been told before and I look for eerie realism that sends chills down my spine. Caged was just okay for me. I enjoyed the dark and gritty vibe to this novel but I felt this story has been told numerous times before. I was hoping it would be something completely out of this world that would literally blow my mind to pieces, but it was just okay.

This author always creates surprising plots with a catch, or more.

Caged features two tortured characters who find bliss and life force in each other. The female character has a strong will and fights for freedom until the very end like a real heroine. I didn't quite know what to expect from this story, but it's a little devious, a little hot and very entertaining. It's written in a casual style with a few interesting sentences here and there that make food for thought and great quotes.

another excellent book by Clarissa Wild, i love both Ella and Cage. The epilogue nearly made me tear up, a beautiful ending to wrap up the journey of them both. i love how both Cage and Ella refused to give up on each other even in the outside world :(

it was an emotional read too, especially the part where they (view spoiler)

HOLY Stockholm Syndrome Batman!!

First off, let me state that there should be a TRIGGER warning for this book. Since there is not, let me insert one here for you. Yes this is a dark book that tried to be a shade of gray to light, but it doesn’t until the end. There is nonconsensual sex in this book. I do not care that the h ends up liking it or whatever else, she was forced into it. I will g

Gahhh! Clarissa Wild's books are legit like kindle crack to me. You know the minute you read them you will get sucked right in. They are dark, sexy, sometimes uncomfortable but ALWAYS delicious. This is exactly what we had with Caged. Ella and Cage were sexy and hot. I thought he was caring, sexy and growly. What a combination! I could not get enough.

Cage is a savage. An untamed beast born in a cage. He was born and bred to be a fighter and was locked away waiting for his mate. Enter Ella. A vic

OMG I Literally was blown away by Clarissa Wild’s newest book Caged. In Caged, we have Ella, who is a photographer. She loves what she does and is awesome at her job. She hasn’t had an easy life, her past holds a tragedy when she was young to which she has never forgotten and has never forgiven herself for what happened. The only people Ella will talk about with what happened is her parents only, other than that, she will not talk about it. In fact, Ella cannot talk above a whisper—so she uses s ...more

Mine, Mine, Mine, YOU - ARE - MINE!!!

This book has left me with mixed feelings. I really appreciated how quickly the story pulled me in from the outset until around 25% way through when the mystery behind the story was revealed, then, for some reason, my interest started to wane slightly.

I hadn’t realised that this book was written in two parts: Caged and Uncaged, and for some reason, this gave the story a slightly disjointed and mixed genre feeling. Gone was the darkness of Caged and in came y

Caged.
Imagine that all your life you didn't have the chance to see the sunrise, you couldn't see the rain or even know the meaning of the word "freedom".
This may be absurd, but it is from there that we know our male main character.

Ella Rosenberg lost her little sister on a beautiful sunny day while they played outside. A stranger appeared, took little Suzie and when Ella managed to find her, she was dead. From that day, Ella started to have a kind of selective mutism. She learned sign language.

To say that I loved this book would be an understatement! This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Turning page after page to find out what would happen next. This book is going to stay on my mind for days!

Ella lost her voice a long time ago. She has the ability to talk but only talks around people she trust. The books kicks up with her losing her freedom too. She wakes up in a cage with no way to escape.

Cage has never known life outside the cage. He has been there as long as he can re

WOW there was a bit of emotion in here that I didn't expect YET LOVED !! Ella had such a tragic past and it left her without a voice and a broken heart. Unknown to her she has been picked and once taken captive she realizes there is so much more to Cage than anyone could ever realize and although it is a painful and twisted experience she works to show Cage the world !! It was an amazing bonus to have Uncaged included in this book so it reads as a complete duet without any cliffhanger and as HEA ...more

Meh. This was so insanely bad.

I hated the plot, the heroine was a nutcase with serious Stockholm Syndrome. She had a hard life and getting captured and forced to "have a baby"/sleep with a handsome, muscular hot guy in a cage, certainly didn't help her.

The erotic moments were okay, I guess. If you are able to overlook the crazy scenario over all and the pure ridiculousness of them falling in love(when you are tortured/forced into having sex with a complete stranger. That's actually a huge red fl
