Caged: Takedown Teague by Shay Savage Review

This is not made for TV. This is the raw, brutal underground of no-holds-barred combat. Inside the cage there is nothing but me and the pain I inflict on those who dare enter. In the cage, I never have to worry about anyone but myself. Yet, when she began standing outside of the cage, everything changed. I was no longer fighting for the money or the glory – I was fighting for her.

Shay Savage lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her family and a variety of household pets.  She is an accomplished public speaker, and holds the rank of Distinguished Toastmaster from Toastmasters International.  When not writing, she enjoys science fiction movies, masquerading as a zombie, is a HUGE Star Wars fan, and member of the 501st Legion of Stormtroopers.  When the geek fun runs out, she also loves off-roading in her jeep, and soccer in any and all forms - especially the Columbus Crew, Arsenal and Bayern Munich.  Savage holds a degree in psychology, and she brings a lot of that knowledge into the characters within her stories.

Caged: Takedown Teague (Caged, #1)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don't know how to categorize this book. Yes, Liam is a cage fighter, and fighting is a major component of the story. There is also so much other happening. The current situation is Liam is crushing on Tria. He's a fighter. She's a college student. They both live on the bad side of town and struggle all the time just to survive. As their tale progresses, bits of their pasts are slowly dropped in with everything else. The reader is trying to figure out where they're headed and where they've been.

For me, some parts before the 40% mark were a little slow, but after that I was hooked. The more I learned, the more I wanted to know. There's lots of psychology which I'm really into. Liam is a great man so it's easy to fall for him. He's a tough guy without all the macho crap that comes with it often. Tria's background is very uniquely odd so that definitely got my attention. I will positively be reading the next book. I really want to know where this is all headed because I have no idea.
