Review: Captive in the Dark by 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.


K so... when I bought this book, I knew it was going to be dark && it is no secret that I love book with dark effed up characters. 

It didn't disappoint. In fact, it was more than I expected. I've read a lot of books that were just hardcore slave/master situations that were full of rape. 

This wasn't so much like that. The line between what is right and wrong is severely blurred in this novel. There were moments when I hated Caleb so much I cried. 

There were others when I loved him, when I wanted to pull him close and never let him go. (Apparently I'm just as crazy as Livvie, lol) I struggled the entire book with my feelings for both characters. 
Livvie is the victim, but she is strong, and I believe she is very honest in her feelings. She doesn't want to feel anything but hate for Caleb, but she finds that the line between love and hate isn't as easy to define as she thought. 

Overall, I really loved this book and I would recommend to anyone who likes dark effed up romance, like me. :-)

Five Stars!
