Title: Caged
Series: The Holloway Pack
Publisher: J Taylor Publishing

BLURB from Goodreads
If the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak. 

For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.

Not this time.

Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.

What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one. 

If he survives.

Because even Ethan’s not sure he’s strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself.

Especially one hell bent on exposing who and what he is in the name of sport.

I received an E-Arc of this one from J Taylor publishing in exchange for y honest review and opinion. I am part of J.A. Belfield's Blog Tour in September but had to read the book now! Everytime I went on my kindle it was there and the Holloway Pack were quite literally calling to me lol! So I read it rather earlier than originally planned.
So the cover is . . .erm .. .great, we have a  . ..  hmmmm....picture of the gorgeous Ethan Holloway on it. Though on the cover he is trapped in a cage (not good). I love the byline "His reputation precede's him" Ethan does have a reputation of not being beaten in a fight, and he would fight to the death to protect those he cares about. So I love the cover! Would I pick it up in a book store? Of course I admit to being totally addicted to this fantastic series.
In this book we are back to the Pack. It's all about fighting and sort of survival of the fittest.
Now the plot/storyline . . .So Gabe has gone missing, so of course the Holloway Pack are called by his mum Shelley and start looking for him. Ethan and Kyle are trapped and end up in cages. So they do find Gabe? Yes, just perhaps not the way they would have preferred and now I've given you enough . . . The blurb tell's us about the fight Ethan has to face, will he win, will he fight to the death as they people in charge want him to? We also learn about other shifter's in this book, there's Brook the panther, more wolves from different packs, and there's Lauren who even those that have captured her don't know what she is or can do. Not everyone survives, there are casualties. The "kidnappers" expect the different races to fight each other to the death.
This book concentrates mostly on Ethan, and we learn more about him as a person, though we did know he was a "good guy" and protective too. We also see a softer side to "Uncle Ethan" I think we can safely say whether boy or girl, Jem and Sean's baby will have "Uncle Ethan" wrapped around his/her little finger and I'm looking forward to more of that and the change in the dynamic of the pack that the birth will create.
Wow this book is action packed! You are literally sat on the edge of your seat whilst reading this one. What else can I say? "wow, Ethan!" In this book we had fun with the characters we know well, got to know some of the other characters better (Gabe and Shelley), and met some new characters (the Brosens Pack, and Brook, & Lauren). I hop some of these new characters continue to interact with the Holloway Pack family too. We even had a little bit of Jem's sister Jess in this book, just a brief appearance though. 
This book is... well as fantastic as ever, Yeay The Holloway Pack! What more can I say? When's the next one??
So did I enjoy this book? YEEESSS! Would I recommend? I'd recommend the Series! Would I read the next book in the series?Yes, when's it available? Would I read other work by J.A. Belfield? Definitely! One word description for the book? Exceptional!
