DARK. Very brutally dark. Some twisted minds wrote Caged. And they should be proud of themselves.
Caged is the last in the Primal Obsessions books, and the series was so easy to devour in two days that I’m ashamed of my gluttony–lies, I reveled in it. I liked this entire series, but this book has some harsher visuals than the other two, in my opinion.
Aimee trespasses onto Pride territory with her boyfriend and his two friends and is met with brutal force. Taken prisoner, she watches the other members of her party be viciously murdered. She is then gifted as a prize to Blaze, one of the Pride Alphas by the Pride Mother, for bringing the trespassers to justice.
Okay, Marked is not as good as the book Captured. Or maybe I’m just not into bears–Goldilocks and all did nothing for me growing up. I thought it was a story about buying new beds. Marked is a Goldilocks story that, to me, is more porn-y than sexy, and less dark than it is kinky.
Rosalie has a very crappy marriage and a crappier husband. She has finally pulled the trigger on an escape plot to get away from the zero-promise future that is her life. Her escape plan is desperate, and the execution is bonkers. It’s no shock that she ends up in a car accident where there is a fatality who turns up to be a bear–yep, a bear. Then it couldn’t get more surreal, but she finds an adorable baby bear in the back seat, and crazy Rosalie is off on another hare-brained adventure.
The three main bears are easy to dislike and not find sexy–I only liked the most psychotic, go figure, and I think it was because he was the least bow, chicka, wow-wow. Brooks, Colt, and Lincoln quite quickly become ‘kitty’-trained to come whenever Rosalie has even a thought of straying. The bears mean to keep her close–but she doesn’t want to leave because her creeper husband is out there just waiting to kill her so, really, peeps.
