Captive In The Dark

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 3 Star Review!!

Olivia is kidnapped for the sole purpose of becoming a sex slave. She is taken to Mexico and forced to submit to her master. Caleb wants revenge. Revenge on the man who took everything from him and turned him into the person he was today. With Olivia’s help, Caleb can almost feel his revenge, but the problem is the connection he almost instantly felt with her. Training her to submit and become a sex slave for another man may just break him again. 

I struggled with this book, and not because it was poorly written or lacked plot. I struggle because I am not sure dark romance is for me. I couldn’t understand how someone could be involved with the sex slave industry and do what was done to Olivia. I give the author props for writing such a cleaver book filled with truly disturbing things, but yet at the same time there was this underlying love theme too. It took me forever to finish this book, since I kept quitting and then coming back to it, but I am so glad I finished it and would do it all again for the last 30% of the book. So much happens and I was just consumed by the story. Reading the excerpt from the next book was like someone stabbing me with a knife! It was torture, and I cannot wait to see what happens with Olivia. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes dark romances.
