The Gilded Cage (Surrender #2) by Lauren Smith *Review*

*I received a eARC of this book for my honest review*

that takes no prisoners, and love that tests the limits of ecstasy . . .

Fenn Lockwood comes alive in the shadows. Though he might have physically survived the kidnapping that stole his childhood, the trauma and pain he lived through have marked him forever. Now the only place where Fenn can be himself is within the walls of his private BDSM world—a place of erotic obsession, where desire isn't just captured . . . it's bound.

Hayden Thorne knows that behind Fenn's hardened exterior is a man worth fighting for. Yet to save him from the past that still haunts him, Hayden will have to abandon every inhibition she's ever had and venture into Fenn's intoxicatingly sensual world. Each tantalizing second she spends in Fenn's searing embrace is more delicious than the last and soon Hayden begins to think that she may never want to leave such torturous bliss . . .


This book sounded interesting but I had never read the first book in this series so I was a little worried I might be confused but this was not the case because it can be read as a stand alone.

It took me 2 days to read it but that is just because we had company over for a few days so I couldn't do a lot of reading.  If I couldn't have read it all in one sitting I would have because I just didn't want to put this book down at all. The Gilded Cage has suspense, mystery and passion.  I loved the main characters from as soon they are introduced. 

I need to get my hands on the first book (Gilded Cuff) and the third book (Gilded Chain) as soon as I can.

I highly recommend The Gilded Cage by Lauren Smith.

I give this 5 out of 5

If you want to purchase this book at Chapters/Indigo,,, Book Depository and other book stores.
