Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was.
Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him.
WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, and graphic violence.
Captive In The Dark (The Dark Duet #1) by C.J. Roberts
Caleb & Livvie “Kitten)
I. AM. A. DIRTY. WHORE.
Ok, first off… repeat after me… “I am a dirty whore!” No shit… just say it now cause once you’ve ended this book, you’ll be thinking it!! I will never be the same again! I am dirty. I am a filthy whore. I left a piece of me on the pages of this book and this book left a piece of it on me! I loved it, I hated it, I wanted to be it, and most of all I will treasure this story for the rest of my existence.
I read Captive in the Dark on the recommendation from another dirty whore, Chelle Bliss. She actually bought me this book a year ago and I kept pushing it further and further down my TBR list. Now I know why! Chelle knew too that once I ingested the words that make up this tantalizing tale that I’d be forever scarred and my heart would never be the same and if it’s all the same to you, I’d like to keep it that way!!
I’ll start with Caleb. Holy freaking hell, this guy is one of a kind. He’s alpha, he’s sexy, he’s as fucked up as they come, and he’s so dark and mysterious that you’ll never, and I mean never know what he’s thinking. He IS the “monster that no one thought to look for in the light of day!” Even after the unimaginable and unspeakable things he does to Livvie, I still crave him is the worst way. Have faith that he’ll turn your world upside down and inside out, he did mine! When he says, “Kitten, don’t let me find you!” a chill ran down my spine. A chill of fear, of excitement, or maybe a chill of the unknown and what would happen if he did find her! Yikes, the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up right now (*looks over shoulder).
Livvie, or should I say Kitten, well, she kind of drove me bat shit crazy. She cries all the damn time. I don’t know what I would do in such a situation, but I sincerely don’t think I’d cry so much. She’s stronger than she thinks and pulls that strength out of her ass at times. She’s not the battered dog she portrays herself to be. She’s more like a young woman who goes from one appalling circumstance to a poorer one depending on how you look at it. I personally think the entire event changes her for the better! She seemed to do a lot of growing up in four months, God knows she had to, but sheesh, the crying almost did me in!
Just so you all know, when you finish this book, you’ll be agitated, salivating, feeling pissed off, exhilarated, and above all dirty! This is a cliffhanger so have the next installment, Seduced in the Dark ready to go. This book was effortless to read and I finished it in two days. It was so captivating and compelling that I could NOT put it down. The dialogue flows and feels very natural. The pacing is perfect and the tension leading to the climax was invigorating to say the least. It’s 224 (Kindle version) pages long… and for me that equates to… not too long, not too short… just right baby… now get your asses over to whatever site you buy your books from and get this mofo immediately!!!
Thank you Chelle for opening my eyes to this dirty world!!!!
5 Stars because 10 is not available!!!
