Captive In the Dark by CJ Roberts review by Nanee
BOOK ONE OF THE DARK DUET: 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.
This writer sure knows how to capture her audience and not let go. This story takes you on a trip through human
Trafficking and the scars it leaves behind. Its a dark story about abuse and violence but having said that its a amazing story of strength, determination, love and loss. It shows you how a person so broken, so messed up can have feelings and possibly love another person. The writer created two amazing characters that you can't help but feel for, want the best for them ( even though one is evil ...or is he?) I fell in love with Caleb; he is dark and tough but is sexy and caring all in one. It's hard to describe all my feelings through out this book but I'm in awe of the creativity it took to write this story , all I can say its not so different from everything out there....it's an amazing read..can't wait for book two to see how Livie and Caleb fair and is this the end of them?
