Uncaged (Corps Security 3.5)

I didn't realize this was only a novella until I looked it up. It is shorter than the other books but not by that much, honestly. There are also sneak peaks of way into the future, too if you're into that.

Uncaged (Corps Security 3.5) - Harper Sloan

Greg Cage’s life is more fulfilling than he ever could have imagined. He’s married to the love of his life, has an amazing son, and in a few short months, his family will grow again with the birth of his twin girls.

The past year has been a tough one for the Cage family, but they are now on the road to healing by learning to let go of the past and looking forward to their future.

When situations beyond his control threaten to take away so much of what Greg holds close to his heart, he has to learn that he doesn't always have the control he tries to maintain in their lives. Will he be able to handle the stress of knowing his wife and newborn daughters are beyond his protection?

Join the Cage family as they embark on yet another one of life’s journeys with a rambunctious four-year-old, pregnancy complications, and the fear of the unknown.

Will the love that Greg and Melissa share hold true as they fight to overcome the obstacles that face them?

Let's get the details out of the way, this is NOT a stand alone. You should read the first three books as some of the details in this way give away previous books, but you absolutely HAVE to read CAGE, because this is a continuation of it. You have to. You know I don't mess around with that kind of thing, do it. 

You guys know I loved Cage and his book, even if Melissa was a total annoying damsel in distress. If anything, this novella was strange for me because the Melissa we know from the first book is 100% different in this one. She isn't whiny and helpless, but I suppose it's because she's the center of the drama. In this novella we find Melissa totally knocked up with twin girls but we know it won't be smooth sailing. Melissa gets into an accident and the her and the babies' future is in danger, leaving Greg to put it all back together on his own. 

Really fast read, but it was take it or leave it. I'm a 50/50 split on novellas, it has to be REALLY good, like enough to almost warrant a full book, for me to love it. This one wasn't terrible, and if you're a fan of Greg and Melissa's, you'll love it. I will say maybe the biggest meh moments for me are Cohen's chapters in the books. Honestly, can we just not with child point of view chapters? Please? It's just too corny and lame and to be honest, I skipped over them completely. I don't have time for that garbage. 

So I'm rating this a 2/5 stars. It's just ok. It isn't anything to write home about, but it is a fun addition to this series.
