BLOG TOUR: Cage 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 heart ache. 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 nochoice 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.



Cage was Alpha-extreme. I'm not sure I've read many things that could be considered more alpha. Even Meli seemed a little alpha. So... if you're looking for alpha, I'm here to tell you that you have hit gold, jackpot, grand slam. You found it!! :)
There were things I loved about the story and things that I didn't. Let's start with what I loved... I loved that Meli was tough. She stood her ground. She kicked some tail. She said what she felt. She stood for what she believed in. She supported and protected her family. She was an AWESOME female character. I loved her! Plus, if you read Axel then you already knew that you were going to love Greg Cage. He takes care of his friends. Has a natural tendency to treat women like ladies. Like queens. All due to the fact that his sister suffered from a abusive relationship in the past and passed away.
So the main thing this book had going for it had to be the awesome main characters. They had great personalities and were just all around likeable. I laughed a lot.
When the characters meet there's an instant attraction, but Meli doesn't have time for men, so we're not dealing with insta-love here. Both characters have some things to work through and it leaves us with quite the story.   Now for what I didn't like... I didn't like that the dialogue of the characters was very much the same. Even Meli talked like an alpha male and I didn't dig that. I think that the story was really awesome, but that some of the alphaness could have been toned down just a bit. It drove me a little crazy, but I overlooked it for the most part. I did enjoy Axel more. I felt that the connection between the characters was a little stronger. That was probably due to their extensive history. Meli really made this story for me with her stubbornness and determination. SHE MADE ME LAUGH. Can't wait for more from this series.

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; 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.
