(The conclusion to Caged)
“I told you, Kloe. I warned you. You should have listened.”
I had once thought that when I found the light I had been searching for in that long, dark tunnel that it would finally give me the gift I had been holding on for.
I had scoured the joyless night sky for peace, a peace that only the brightness of the stars could grant.
And I had endeavoured to catch that single magic snowflake in the middle of a howling snowstorm.
I had been looking. Forever.
But little did I know that it WAS the sinister darkness in the tunnel that was the gift. It WAS the black reservoir of the deepest, darkest night that would be the very thing to give my chaotic soul peace. And it WAS the heaving rush of the bleakest blizzard that was filled with magic.
Anderson Cain WAS the darkness.
He WAS the black peace in my soul.
And within the raging pool of his wild green eyes WAS the magic.
The magic that saw me. The real me.
He made sure I saw me too. All of me. He’d told me he would make me accept who I really was.
I was Kloe Grant. And now – now I am the epitome of what he wanted me to be.
But when I finally let go, and I allowed that darkness to find me, neither of us was prepared for who I really was.
This book contains extreme violence, strong adult language and scenes of dark sex, including M/F/M.
5 Stars – get ready for a bumpy ride !
I have struggled so much writing this review because it was just so hard to find the words to describe it and do it justice. Yet again, Dawn has nailed it! I read this book in one sitting, unable to put it down and tear myself away and I spent most of my time with my mouth open as it was full of so many OMG and WTF moments. Dawn reached in, grabbed my heart and completely ripped it to shreds and i really did not anticipate it ending the way it did.
Chained picks up right where Caged finished and we get a lot more insights into both Khloe and Anderson’s past and how they came to be so intertwined. I ached for them, I wanted them to get their HEA as its no more then they deserved but whether this happens you will have to read and find out for yourself. The raw emotion in this book was palatable, Dawn has this way of just making you feel EVERYTHING along with her characters and I had goosebumps on more than one occasion with the anticipation at what was to come next.
There is nothing predictable about this story or in fact any of Dawn’s books, you will be kept on you toes, suffering whip lash with the twists and turns right up to the very last page. If you are a lover of dark reads then this is certainly the book/series for you but hold on to your hats as you are in for one hell of a ride.
