Review: Uncaging Wolves by Dakota West
Category : Reviews
Scarlet’s been a little too tied up to meet her true mates. Actually, she’s been getting reformed… in prison. Now that she’s free, she’s sworn that she’ll leave her old life behind. She’s got a steady place to live, a good job, and she’s minding the rules of her parole.
Maybe she’d be more convincing if she didn’t immediately sneak out of the house and head to The Den, a rough shifter bar. That’s where she meets two smoking hot, totally irresistible wolves, lies about who she is, and ends the night with quite a bang.
Wolf shifter mates Gavin and Chase have been on the straight and narrow for years, though they weren’t always so squeaky clean. On a night out at their favorite bar, they meet Sarah, the shifter woman of their dreams. They’re held hostage by her gray eyes and dangerous spark, and they can’t resist her, even when she disappears without saying goodbye. They have to find her. She’s the one, their fated mate.
That is, until Sarah shows up at Gavin’s office. Except Sarah’s real name is Scarlet, and she’s on parole – and that makes her Gavin’s newest charge.
Can Chase and Gavin forgive Scarlet’s lies – and forgive her for who she used to be? Or will Scarlet fade back into her old ways, losing her mates and her freedom in the bargain?
Uncaging Wolves is a steamy MMF romance about two mates, the woman they love… and the irresistible heat between the three of them!

POV: Scarlet, Gavin, Chase
Steam Level: Quite Warm at times
Uncaging Wolves is, at its core, a redemption story. For fans of Shifter Country Bears series, we rejoin a few characters while Scarlet redeems herself from her ugly past. You don’t have to have read the book where we originally meet Scarlet and her brother but it’s fun if you have. Scarlet, fresh from prison, goes out for the night, has good time with a mated pair, lies about her name, and disappears – only to find out that one of the guys is her PO. who has seen too many “changed” people go back to jail.
I love the intermix of personalities, the questions of whether or not people really can change, and the very real observation that everyone has something dark somewhere inside them. You feel Scarlet trying to remain positive and stay out of jail but also her loneliness and feelings of being adrift. Uncaging Wolves a heartfelt novella that makes you think about your actions and how who you surround yourself with plays a role in some of them but also how your choices and decisions also affect your actions. Beautiful and poignant. Definitely a lesson more people should take to heart.
I received an advanced copy of this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.
- Everyone has something bad deep inside them.
