In the third book of best-selling ménage author Trinity Blacio’s Masters of the Cats series, Bengal tiger shifter Lacey must deal with the life changes that have happened in her female clan as they are wooed by an alien race of alpha shifters and pursued by an even deadlier race of shifter demons.

Three months ago all of their lives changed. Lacey hasn’t decided whether or not it was for the good. Could her life actually change for the better? Was it possible that the three males who kept following her around were truly hers? Could she really trust them? Was this true love? Or were they trying to cage the tiger seeking revenge?
Isaac Featherstone, Dan Edwards and Anthony Jefferson will fight anyone who harms their woman, including family. Isaac knows they need to collar their Lady Cat, but with betrayal still fresh on all their minds, is she going to trust them with her love? Were they ready to take up the mantel of leadership?
Surrounded by enemies all around them, Isaac, Dan, and Anthony try to protect Lacey the only way they know, showing her that they were not going anywhere. They were there to stay, and her men would not let her down like so many others had. They would prove their love by showing her that she could trust them no matter what is thrown their way.

Caging the Bengal Tiger by Trinity Blacio is third in the Masters of the Cats in the series.  This story is best read in chronological order. 
I love me a kick-ass female and Ms. Blacio did not disappoint with  Lacey.  Lacey’s life was a hard one but she has determination on her side.  Determination to do right by not only her family but her friends.  Seeing that determination come up against her kith was enjoyable to say the least.  Even as Isaac, Anthony and Dan struggle to gel as a cohesive unit, they must corral their fiery mate.  She may be attracted to them but she wasn’t one to just give in, they would have to work for her and I chuckled at not only Lacey’s antics but her men’s responses. 
I enjoyed the layers Ms. Blacio gave to the men in this story.  You had Dan who is struggling to accept not only his changed circumstances but his growing attraction to men, something foreign to him up to this point.  You have Isaac who struggles with the new responsibilities of being the head of a family.  And while his struggle isn’t so obvious you have Anthony finding his role within a family full of strong personalities.  I thought Ms. Blacio did a wonderful job of laying out the individual struggles while weaving four individuals into a cohesive unit. 
While this has been my least favorite of the series so far, I impatiently wait to see how Ms. Blacio will untangle the threads she has given as she continues this series.
