Review: Cage (Corps Security #2) by Harper Sloan


"Alpha heroes you'll want to kidnap and keep, heroines to root for, and sizzling love scenes with emotional punch." Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author

Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister’s shield against the world…until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance

around… until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control?

Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main

priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing
she will ever do is ask for someone else’s help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength?

The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes an unexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on

another member of the Corps family.

All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing

threatens anyone Greg loves again.
CAGE is a complete story with a HEA.

I'm sorry but I have to say it...

Cage is so much better than Axel. 

Yes, I love Axel as a character (to be honest, i love all the corps men... and Sway). I can just see how Sloan as a writer becoming more confidence and have more control of her writing style. Kudos, chica!
Cage continues on from the ending of Axel. It began with a really awkward situation, which not surprisingly caught my attention *angel face*, it was set around the time of preparation on Axel's wedding and it was all hectic, nerve-wracking, and all that groomzillia. 
The prose has better writing style, readers can really see how Sloan as a writer playing out with different 'goods' from book one. It is still written in two POVs but we got to see a lot more of the cast, and what really nice was that we go to see Axel and Isabelle - what have they up to since the end of book one. 
Lets just say, there are hella lots of guns, drama, explosion, sex, drama, and did i mention scorching hot sex? 
The flow of the story was paced quite nicely, it was a slow burn and teasing in the beginning yet ascending to faster, and faster towards the dilemma, leaving us to a great climax.
Character wise, Cage has been my favourite cast since Axel, he cared about the people he was with and he's not afraid to show his Papa Bear's claws when his loved one get hurt. Trust me, all hell broke loose. *KABOOM*
In Axel, I really thought he'll be uber sweet kind of man, oozing charm and less Neanderthal. I was right...ish. Cage is a charming, charming man with a hot body and confidence with his debauchery. ONE THING readers, Melissa is one lucky gal, experiencing his quirky piercings on his, uh, down south. Not one, not two, but BIG FREAKING SEXY THREE piercings. Yes, readers.. you have read it right.

let just have a minute silence to appreciate this fortunate fantasy...

Anyway, Melissa~ sassy, sexy, and smart gal. Triple threat with sexual appetite bigger than a dozen starving camel (quite expected really, with Cage and all). Behind all that confidence, lays some vulnerability of which Cage needs to release from her. Not to mention, her responsibility with Cohen. Will he be their superhero? or would he leave all that potential and continue his no-strings lifestyle?
The ending was uber cute. I was gushing with awws and ooh. Readers who like HEA and big dramatic scenes would love Cage, more so the whole Corps Security series. 

I can't wait until the third book, Beck comes out *dances*

Author Info

     Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of
Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed
'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline
unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her
ereader attached.
As an ex-reviewer and blogger, Harper's passion for reading runs deep.
It wasn't until 'Axel' decided to take up residence that she realized her
true calling.
    She started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep
at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It
didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at
nothing to have their story told.
