The biker gangs passing through Lobo Norte don’t scare Ofelia anymore. All those men are the same: scarred, homeless, and broken…just like Ofelia. They’ve become a blur of forgettable faces watching her strip. She takes off her clothes, takes their money, and wipes them from her memory instantly.

But Trouble is different. A biker with a wolf tattoo and tortured eyes, he sees beyond Ofelia’s tough disguise to a more fragile woman within. She’s drawn to him like she’s never been drawn to a man before—at least, not since she survived hideous torture at the hands of her ex-boyfriend that left her scarred physically and emotionally. She can’t forget Trouble. And she definitely can’t push him away.

There’s magic between them that neither understands. But maybe if Ofelia and Trouble can find the truth, they can release each other from the chains that bind them to Lobo Norte, to the Fang Brothers biker gang, and to the dark secrets in their pasts…



My thoughts…

Lobo Norte is a place is not a place that people go to. Lobo Norte is a place where only bad stuff happens. All that consists of Lobo Norte is a whore house, a bar with a stripper pole inside, and a few trailers that house a few of the inhabitants. Lobo Norte is a place where people go to do drugs, purchase time with a prostitute, or do shady deals. Ofelia is there to lay low. She has the scars to prove the rough past she’s running from but she feels safe in Lobo Norte. That is, until Trouble and his biker gang show up. All of a sudden she’s not only attracted the attention of werewolves but her past shows up on a motorcycle ready to rip her life away from her again.

Hmm… I don’t really know what to say about this book. It started out really interesting. You have this place where it doesn’t actually have a location. It’s not on the map and people don’t really know it exists. It’s just this small strip of land between Mexico and the U.S that no one knows about. Shady stuff happens there but it’s nothing the residents can’t handle. Then a biker gang of werewolves shows up, one gets possessive of her, and just when things start to get interesting, the story gets weird… and not necessarily a good kind of weird. It went from being a paranormal romance to just shy of a monster erotica. It was so sudden that I’m still sitting over here with a perplexed look on my face. I just don’t know what to make of the story. It was good and then all of a sudden it flipped into uncharted territory really fast, through a bunch of random stuff at me, and then ended. For being such a short story, it’s definitely one that will stick with me for a while. Again, not sure if that’s a good thing or not. :\


Favorite quote…

“Not many people mistook me for a good girl in Lobo Norte. Good people didn’t live here. Especially not good people with so many scars.”


5 Thoughts on “Review: Caged Wolf by S.M. Reine

  1. I was like why is this one familiar???? I started reading it awhile back but had to put it aside! 😀 I’ll need to finish it up now lol Hope you had a great weekend!

  2. Lol, monster erotica! Now you’ve got me curious, mwahahaha!

  3. Hmm, I have this one…must have been a freebie. I’ve read SM Reine’s Six Moon Summer and it was pretty good. This one I may put on my maybe someday shelf. 😉 Monster erotica, huh?!?!

    • Let’s just say it went from a normal paranormal story into some pretty erotic scenes without much warning. LoL It’s definitely one that even a month after reading it, I still can’t quite put my finger on it.

  4. Oh weird that it would do that! I do love my monster erotica but the total change about would throw me too I think.
