REVIEW - Captive in the Dark - CJ Roberts

TITLE - Captive In The Dark

AUTHOR - CJ Roberts


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.

My Review:

Very dark, still not sure how I feel about this one. So many things about it scream how wrong it is, but then at the same time the stupid-sucker-for-a-romantic-ending in me just wants the dark and nasty side of this to turn all undying love.

Plus the lover of all things wrong, nasty, and disturbing is completely addicted to all the action and tense moments.

I would like to think that this is going to end, in a crazy romance kind of way. The lead characters certainly have the chemistry, and it's heading in that direction, despite all the nasty stuff that Olivia has to go through to get there, it's just done in quite a brutal way.

Very screwed up that Caleb is, he seems to want her but it's conflicting with his revenge plan, that is so much bigger than everything else in his world. A good read if you like the disturbing and dark love stories.

I'm fast becoming a big fan of all the dark and nasty books, that are coming out, and this one is up with the good ones.
