A new romance by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Clarissa Wild!
People say I’m ferocious. Wild. Dangerous.
They’re right. That’s why I live on an island alone.
The jungle is my home. My personal prison.
Until she arrived.
The moment her helicopter crashed on my land, everything changed.
She’s the only survivor … And I’m keeping her locked up in a pit.
It’s been too long since I last touched a woman, especially one so beautiful.
It makes me hunger for her.
I want her … So I’ll keep her …
And I’ll make her mine.

He nods again and points at the shower. “Go on then.”
“What? Now?” I say, looking down at myself. I’m still dressed. “I don’t want my clothes to get wet.”
He shrugs. “Then take them off.”
My lips part, but I have no idea how to respond.
All I can do is stare in amazement.
Did he actually just tell me to take off my clothes?
“What?” I repeat, for clarification.
“Take ’em off.”
He’s serious. He’s dead serious, and that stern stare almost makes me want to do it.
But no, my morals have to get in the way again.
“No,” I say, folding my arms. “I’m not going nude …”
He frowns and shrugs again. “Suit yourself.”
He seems genuinely disappointed as he turns back around again. As if he’s upset that I won’t try his makeshift shower even though I want to. I just can’t … not when he’s watching.
“I’ll do it,” I say.
He stops in his tracks and glances over his shoulder, waiting for more.
“But you can’t watch,” I add.
His shoulders rise and fall, and he gives me a quick nod. “I’ll be down there.” He points at the small lake. “If you need me.”
Wait, do I need him? No. Maybe.
Fuck. I don’t. I don’t know anything anymore.
I peek at the shower, but my eyes still revert to him. And they stay there … glued … because he’s untying the rope around his waist.
And the banana leaves drop to the ground.
My eyes widen.
Butt naked and in its full glory.
Cheeks squeezed together, thighs muscular and thick.
And an enormous dick dangling between his legs.
I struggle to keep my tongue inside … struggle to even breathe properly.
Until he glances my way.
In shock, I quickly dive behind the wood and grasp my chest. As if that will help me from having a heart attack after being caught staring at a naked man.
And what a man he is … Wow. I still can’t get that image out of my mind, and I don’t even wanna try. All I can do is grin as I start undressing, wishing I wasn’t so easily persuaded to ogle a man because of his dick.
But Jesus Christ … that dick.
So I really enjoyed this story in a whole different way than Caged. Which btw I don’t think you have to read Caged to understand this book, but I would if you want to understand some of what is going on in the end.
This book with Lock is not nearly as dark as Caged was, but it a complicated and emotional story for him. I love Lock, I wanted his story when he was brought up in Caged and could not wait to read his story when we all found out it would be released and Clarissa did not disappoint. Lock is the kind of man you would want to find you if you find yourself lost on an unknown island. Even not growing up the way a “normal” man does he still has more compassion than anyone else would in that situation.
Jules is a strong independent woman that has gone through something very traumatic. She is very lucky that Lock is there to protect her and take care of her. I sometimes wanted to smack her for how she treated him, but then I had to get out of my head and into hers and understand that she wants to go home and that I probably am the same way. Especially with having no patience for being stranded on an island with someone I know nothing about.
This is a wonderfully written story that I was grateful to read for my honest review. I think Lock is my new book boyfriend. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.
