Caged D. H Sidebottom  
Judd Asher was taken from his front garden when he was just four years old. After an extensive search he was never found. Twenty-one years after a random call out, Judd is found chained and beaten in the basement of an old rundown farmhouse where he has lived the life of an animal for the last twenty-one years. Kloe Grant is assigned as Judd's personal therapist. It's her job to rehabilitate him, to guide him back to normal life. But as Judd's only emotion is rage, Kloe finds it both heart-breaking and challenging mending a soul that's not only broken but caged inside him by the demons of his past. However, when Kloe's relationship with her patient raises some eyebrows, Kloe can't fight against the powers that want to see her fail, and with an arm behind her back, she walks away, leaving behind a man who has come to live life again for her. Four years later Judd, now known as Anderson Cain, the darkest and most formidable cage fighter in a world where violence and crime are the only way to keep breathing, Judd finds there's not a lot in life that can abate the rage that still twists and prowls beneath his skin. Not until a chance encounter brings him to her door. To the woman with the bluest eyes and the most stunning smile, the woman who took his hand in the darkness and led him through the door into the sun. But Kloe Grant left him when he needed her the most. She took the only shred of hope and trust he had left and annihilated it. She starved his belief, and she fed his fury. She owes him. And he's going to make sure that this time, she pays. In blood. In lust. In pain. And with her soul.
My Review
Normal i'd begin a review with an overview of the book and the characters....Instead....this time i'm doing things a little differently! 
I'm going to start with a massive, gigantic and fairly riotous round of applause! It takes ALOT to give me a book hangover but i'm currently sitting here with my head in my hands contemplating ways that i can successfully kidnap Ms Sidebottom and force her to reveal the plot for the concluding part 'Chained' (current release date 15th July but up for preorder NOW). 
So what was it that got me so hooked? i hear you ask....Absolutely EVERYTHING!!!! I rarely like female leads in books, especially when there's a strong dominate male...they tend to be flaky and one dimensional and bow down far too easily (sorry but its true far too often at the moment!) which just irritates me! however, Kloe is a whole different kettle of 50 shades of fooked up. On the surface you have a super hot therapist with a shady past....dig a little deeper...well...i'm not going to tell you what you're going to find! read the me....If you're a fan of DARK, twisted skull NEED to read this book! the male in question...and my future husband....i do like a psycho with a soft Anderson Cain. A man so very broken that the fragments sparkle all over him like shards of diamonds, the one thing holding him together, the one thing driving him forward, fuelling him, is an undeniable animalistic rage. It burns so brightly that women's pants melt within a 50 mile radius.

Now for the boring warning segment of my review....This is pretty hardcore! so if you're looking for a story that has hearts and flowers and men on bended knee ( do get that once or twice -wink-) then this isn't for you! However....if you want a story as dark and gritty and lustfilled as a streetwalkers thong after a hard Friday on the corner? this is the book for you! 

Couldn't possibly love this story any more than i do right now......I'm a mess. 
5 stars just isn't enough!
