The cage is broken…

But not everything is perfect in paradise. Mary, Matt’s young daughter, has started having nightmares, Octavia’s sister Gigi is having boy trouble, and Merc, their brother, trouble with girls.
Then Evan, Matt’s best buddy back in Destiny, asks for help after an accident—and the trip turns complicated when Octavia makes it her mission to locate and save her half-brother Ross from himself.
Octavia wants everyone around her to be happy. Matt is determined to safeguard their family’s happy ending.

One way or another, love will find a way…

Author note: This is NOT a standalone novel. It is the epilogue to CAVEMAN and UNDONE. You need to read at least CAVEMAN before you read MANCAVE. Novel-length book.

Warning! You must have read Caveman to read this book!

This book is a few years down the road since Caveman. Matt and Tay are doing well but their pasts seem to still be lingering in the background.

Matt gets a call from Evan an old co-worker asking for help. Evan has had an accident and Matt is worried about him. He decides to go back to their home town and look after him for a few days. Tay decides she wants to go with him. She's pregnant and Matt isn't keen but he relents as he can't say no to her. 

Tay has her own reasons for returning to her old home town. Her half brother Ross. Her mom has told Tay some things she heard about him and Tay is worried. So much so she has a really bad feeling her nightmares might come true. He was always mean to her but she needs to reach out to him. Surely there's good in everyone? If she can just talk to him.

Matt is still suffering with anxiety that something is going to go wrong. He's so happy now but he's had that before but then lost it. He's worried about Evan and his brother Kaden. He's stressing over Tay and his kids Cole and Mary and basically everything. He's doing his best to deal though and Tay always grounds him.

It's amazing to catch up with Matt and Tay again! It's great to see them building their lives and still being so much in love! Also to see the kids growing up and all of them becoming a solid family they all deserve.

It did really quite upset me seeing Matt still struggle though. It was heartbreaking reading his stress about basically everyone he loves. He's so committed to making sure he's there for everyone and at times it felt like he had the weightof the world on his shoulders. I know there are more to come in this series and i'm hoping as the series unravel's we'll see Matt more relaxed and able to enjoy his family without stress.

This book is a what happened next story and also a prelude of whats to come. I'm pretty much intrigued by all the characters, Gigi who is Tay's sister, Evan and his big secret he revealed, and Ross!!! Not sure if he can be redeemed but i'm looking forward to finding out!! And also Sydney who is Gigi's friend.... Now that's one that can't come soon enough! lol

Great read which has teased me ruthlessly with what's to come from the rest of this series!!
