Review- Cage's Misconduct by Nikki Worrell

Title:  Cage's Misconduct  
Author: Nikki Worrell
Publication Date: September 28th 2015
Plot:  Dalton ‘Cage’ Booker is the number one goalie for the San Diego Scorpions. Most people describe him as willful and stubborn—sometimes even difficult to control. More often than not, words fly out of his mouth without the benefit of passing through his brain first. And women love him.

Karen LaGrange, little sister of the former enforcer for the Scorpions, lives in Canada, where she works with special needs children. After losing her job to downsizing, she makes an extended visit to San Diego, forming a friendship with the errant goalie.

Through frequent reminders that they are friends without benefits, Karen struggles to keep their relationship platonic, but the more she shuts him down, the more he wants her.

Can Cage convince Karen to slip under the sheets with him, or is he destined to be firmly entrapped in the friend zone? 

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

Aww, Cage, you little shit….how beautifully you've redeemed yourself…I couldn't be more happier for you. Finally.

Dalton “Cage” Booker, as most of all you remember, is the hot tempered, cocky, foul mouthed, ladies man that grates on everyone’s last nerves. Most particularly, Jody LaGrange.

He’s quick to talk as he is quick to act. And the last guy any brother would steer their sister far away from.

But, beneath all his rough, spiky edges, he has a heart full of gold, and that’s what Karen LaGrange (obviously, Jody’s little sis), sees in him.

At first, Cage being Cage, he hits on Karen. But Karen being the realist that she is, she rejects, and the two begin in a strictly platonic friendship with the other, despite Cage’s wanting to take his and Karen’s relationship to the next level.

I have to say, I really loved the dynamics between Cage and Karen as their relationship went beyond just feeling an inkling for the other and jumping into a bed to have sex. No. Their whole existence is built on growing understandings, trust, and the ever wavering faith they have in each other.

When Karen revealed her tragic past….when Cage revealed his background…and when both were at their highest of highs, and lowest of lows…they were always there for each other and each’s biggest supporter and light in the crumbling darkness.

I really loved them as friends, and when they developed into lovers, I was overwhelmed with excitement and sexual thrill. I mean, *cough cough* you can’t keep a girl hanging and hanging with that much tension and not want to jump and hump a leg after all of that pent up desire between Cage and Karen… Come on, I’m only human. *wink wink*

Anyway, Cage, it’s been real. Hope to see you again in Boardwalk Breakers!!

 About the Author 


I am a country girl at heart who tends to like the simple things...and hockey. Give me a hockey game and I'm set! During intermission, I read. Reading has always been a love of mine since I was a little girl. The books have gotten a bit spicier though. I also like moonlit walks on the beach, strawberries and champagne (ok, dirty martinis actually), and a strong man to hold me...etc., etc., etc. ;)

I live in Hammonton, NJ with my husband of over 18 years. It's not always easy but it's always worth it. 

I have a B.S.B.A. in Human Resources and work for a law firm in Philadelphia. The only thing left to say is....GO FLYERS!
