ABOUT THE BOOK
Reunited once more, the crew of Baal’s Heart must make the long and treacherous journey south to the towering spires of the Devil’s Isles. The path through the mountain range is fraught with peril; mayhem and tragedy plague the pirate ship, but what the men find beyond the spires is the most shocking of all.
In this sequel to the acclaimed Caged, the pirates are dragged into a dangerous new world by Captain Baltsaros’s all-consuming obsession. In the midst of terror and chaos, Jon learns that the captain and first mate have been keeping secrets from him. But will the truth tear them apart?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
⚓ Artist, Writer, Dog Lover. ⚓
Born and raised in a small coastal town in northern Québec, Bey spent his early summers on his uncle’s boat and running wild on the beaches of the surrounding islands, lighting fires and building huts out of driftwood and fishermen’s nets. As an adult, he eventually made his way to university and earned a degree in Art History with a strong focus on Anthropology. Primarily a portrait painter and graphic artist, Bey sat down one day and decided to write about the two things that he felt most passionate about: sex and the sea.
Bey currently lives in the wilds of Montréal with his best buddy, a spotty pit bull named Murphy. Caged: Love and Treachery on the High Seas is his first novel.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This series is majorly great. In the current installment, Baal's Heart of course gets into some very stressful situations. I had to stop for a breather a couple of times because I was nervous. The timeline switches from past to current, catching us up nicely. The adventures are extremely interesting. There are always clues that could possibly mean something. You never quite know where the storyline is headed. There is no downtime. This book has a bit of everything: action, mystery, angst, eroticism, BDSM, mysticism, symbolism, psychology...and a healthy dose of The Feels in my opinion.
"Hush, lovey. Hush, it'll be ok, Jon. Stop your fightin', it's just me. Old Tom's goin' to make things better..."
Umm, yes, please, I do need Tom to come make it better. Can I put a request in for that?
The kiss was endless, staggering. It was as if a dam had broken between the men as they strained against each other on the hard mattress. They were raw with desire and thoughts unsaid, both wanting to draw the moment out as long as they could, knowing that it might be a very long time before they had a chance to shed their skins and press their scarred hearts together again.
The more I learn about Tom, the more I love him. What a sweet soul he is under all that damage.
"He sees the good in me, Da, plain as day. That's somethin' worth fightin' for. Maybe even dyin' for."
Not only do we learn more about Tom, but we find out some more about the captain's little quirk. Can't say as that I'm not troubled, but I do see some good in Baltsaros.
Jon has really changed from the last book. He's more take charge which is great, but at the same time, he isn't as innocent.
The settings are amazing, ancient fictional lands and people. The sex scenes are off the charts hot (and some are very emotional). Everything is so extremely well written. Please do yourself a favor and pick up this series immediately. I often make fan pics for books I love, but the author is an artist and has already drawn some up under art on his blog. These are so much better than anything I could make and definitely not safe for work.
If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. 5+++
