Takedown Teague is the first in the Cage Trilogy and although some readers experienced his story as fan-fiction, this was my first meeting. One thing that separates Shay from other romance authors is her ability to tell a story from the male point of view. She feeds this need I have to get inside the Hero’s head like no other author.
The first book in this series sets up the story perfectly. Tria and Liam both have horrible pasts that they are running from and although we get a good look into the life Tria was living, we haven’t even begun to peel back the layers of what Liam has endured. And although I loved book one, I think the punch to the gut impact I was expecting is going to happen in book two.
I didn’t love this more than Surviving Raine, which is my all-time favorite Shay book, but I have strong feeling that this series as a whole is going to soon change that. I couldn’t help but be drawn into these two characters, Liam was expected to be this bad boy fighter that was going to be a hard shell to crack and although you know he’s seen plenty of ugly in his life, there is this thing about him that still remains soft even after years of hard. I can’t wait to see him broken down and discover all of his secrets, even though I feel like it might just break my heart to watch.
For readers who fear the dreaded release cycle for series, have no fear. We aren’t left with a desperate cliffhanger, we aren’t left wondering when the next book is coming out... it’s already up for pre-order and rumor has it, that part three will be released soon after.
If you have not read a story from Shay, you need to do that. Her take on romance is not traditional. It’s not hearts and flowers, it is gritty and criminal at times. You are going to get to the soft underbelly of the men who are featured in her stories, but you are going to have to work to get there.
I am going to be as patient as I can waiting the next few weeks until I can continue this story, but I can honestly say that I will be dropping everything once I have that book in my greedy hands.
Liam is a cage fighter, not the kind you see on pay-per-view but the kind that is found in seedy bars, throwing punches and kicks for just enough cash to cover basic expenses. He's no stranger to the decaying underbelly of society and vices along skid row, which is why he's surprised to notice a young and rather naive girl walking home alone through the worst streets at the worst time of night. His penchant for violence and unrestrained anger quickly reveals itself when he finds her in danger, and though their initial meeting is a bit on the terrifying side, he soon finds himself playing hero and protector to the girl who is revealed as his downstairs neighbor.
Tria is starting over, though it's obvious she never had much to begin with. Having left behind the archaic expectations of her tiny hometown, she's out of her depths in the grungiest part of the city, but it's what she can afford, and it's close enough to the university that saw to her scholarship. He upstairs neighbor is the last kind of person she would have seen herself spending time with, but as he comes to her rescue more and more, she can't help but see him as something more than the angry, purposeless fighter he first appears to be.
Told from Liam's point of view, readers are left to draw their own conclusions about Tria's thoughts, but she appears to be rather guileless and uncomplicated. Their relationship is more than simple attraction, though they certainly have that in spades. Tria seems to be almost completely unaffected by Liam, but it appears she's only enforcing boundaries on herself out of respect for him and the need to keep the only friend she seems to have in the city. Liam, on the other hand, is beside himself with raw want, but Tria is young and innocent, relying on him to help her, not take advantage of her.
Shay Savage pulls no punches when telling the story from Liam's side, making Caged: Takedown Teague a wickedly raw but simply romantic story that promises a sinfully rough road to an eventual happy ending. Having been broken into three separate books, this piece of the story ends on a cliffhanger, which is why I can't bring myself to give it five stars. While the next installment will be out within a month, there are few things that end a book for me on a more disappointing note than leaving everything up in the air. Even having read it in its original form, I'm itching to know whether the coming chapters follow the path I remember.
***FicCentral received this book from TRSOR Promotions for free in exchange for an honest review.
Liam is a cage fighter, he has a dangerous and mysterious past. Tria is a college student fresh from the wilderness trying to adapt to low budget housing in the big city. City life lessons continue to pull Tria and Liam together. But can they survive the cage match called love and life?
- There was no referee. There were no rounds. There was really only one rule—whoever taps out or goes unconscious loses.
- I was still kind of focused on her sticky lips and had no idea what she was asking me.
- A blanket hog. I knew there was a reason I never slept with women I slept with.
- Once she got a grip on it, it was a death grip, and I would sooner go into her purse looking for Tic Tacs than try to get it away from her.
