Round Three of the KAGE Trilogy continues with the story of Jamie Atwood & his MMA fighter boyfriend.


Trey started laughing. “Jeez, Jamie. Make up your mind. Do you want all of the eggs, or none?”
I looked down and discovered that I’d scraped every bit of egg back into the serving bowl. “Oh, forget it.” I slammed my empty plate down on the table and folded my arms across my chest. “Y’all just eat. I’m not hungry anymore.”

“You don’t need bacon anyway,” Kage pointed out. “And definitely not those biscuits. You still need to watch what you eat, even when I can’t be around to help.”
“Yes, daddy,” I said, bitterness making my voice tight. “Do you know how ridiculous you look trying to be all bossy while wearing my clothes that are too small for you? That shirt is practically a cutoff.”

“Yeah?” Suddenly the edge was gone from his demeanor, and his tone was playful. “You don’t think I look authoritative enough in your shirt? How about this?” He pulled it up over his head, balled it up, and threw it at me. I caught it without thinking, because all I was conscious of was his bare chest and abdomen, and the fact that we were standing in the kitchen with my friends looking on. I wanted to cover him with a dish towel or something.
He stalked toward me with a cocky swagger that had my knees melting, backing me into a corner formed by the edge of the refrigerator and the wall. “Can I be your daddy now?” he asked, resting his hand on the wall behind my head and leaning in.

I stared at him, swallowing around the dry piece of wood that was my tongue, feeling it catch in my throat. His dick was within inches of mine, and I could smell the soap on his skin and feel his breath against my cheek. I tried not to make eye contact with him, but I couldn’t ignore the proximity of his body. He knew it, too; the lecherous grin on his face was proof of that. He was purposely goading me, and I wasn’t sure what to do about it. My head was a swirl of confusion, and my cock was hard. I was within seconds of saying fuck it and wrapping my legs around his waist. I wanted to feel his steely length pressing against me through the fabric of those dangerously revealing sweat pants.

Tracy's Review:

5 Stars

*copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by author/publisher in exchange for an honest review*

I warred with myself about reading this book. I knew I had other ARC's to read that had due dates, but Kage Unmasked won out. After I finished posting my review of Kage Unleashed I moved right on to Kage Unmasked. I read it in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down.

This final leg of Kage and Jamie's journey begins just where Kage Unleashed ended. This book had something the other two didn't. Comic relief. As this book starts off I was surprised to find myself laughing out loud quite often at some of the antics that take place. Not just the antics and conversations between Kage and Jamie, but also Jamie's roommates. I loved that a portion of this  book takes place on Jamie's turf. I loved getting to see them interact with Trey and Braden, Jamie's roommates. I really wish one of them were gay, so we could continue.. Hint hint, Maris :D

This story, just like the first two in the series, was well written and flowed well. Jamie and Kage have a chemistry that is out of this world and that chemistry carries through all three installments. This installment wasn't as dark as the first two and we finally get the mystery surrounding Kage's awful childhood told to us. This was so heartbreaking, but it needed to be told and dealt with so Kage and Jamie can move on to their HEA. This story was funny, sweet, sexy and loaded with some smoking hot sex!! It had some mystery and action thrown in as well!

These characters are well developed and I've enjoyed getting to know these guys and I'll miss them. I haven't read a book by Maris that I haven't loved yet. I highly recommend this series and am looking forward to what's in store from her next!
