Synopsis

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.

    Caleb's Darkness

    I read this book a long time ago, rated it 5 stars, but never reviewed it. Recently I did a reread and wanted to write some focusing on Caleb. I love Caleb, who is one of my top ten of all times in the book boyfriends department. The first thing that stands out to me in the beginning is how much pleasure he derives just from watching her, before anything has even happened (as far as the Livvie/Caleb situation). He was excited and instantly drawn to her. The reader feels suspended on the edge of their seat waiting to find out what will happen, how it will play out. After her abduction, she still can't hate him even though she feels she should. While he is completely consumed with her, she is not immune. She dreams of him, a perfect angel. Although he may look like heaven, he is equal parts heaven and hell. -He was my tormentor and my solace; the creator of the dark and the light within.- As more details of his past are provided, he becomes an even more complex character. He is so gorgeous and his been so tormented and is now fighting his desires, emotions, background, pain, fate, etc etc etc. I wanted to hold the little boy he once was and encourage the man he is that he could change his future. The entire story is up then down, emotional wave after emotional wave, surprise, sexiness, ugliness, doom and hope. It just doesn't get much better. I know this isn't a proper review, but as I stated I just wanted to write a little on Caleb.

    a painful part of a bigger journey

    Captive is deeply and profoundly disturbing, but mesmering. I wasn't sureif Icould keep going or if it would just break me, but the second act cannot happen without the first and this book takeyou through the emotional wringer you need to feel before you can appreciate the choices made in the sequel.

    My view

    Initially, it seemed as if the story was loaded with exotics. As the story progresses one would dwell into emotional feelings as well.

    Not your typical story

    When I discovered this booked, I wasn't sure what I felt. There was a mix of anger, shame, vengeance and love. I read along wishing for Caleb's death but wanted his humanity. CJ Roberts' exquisite wording pulled me into this world where everything was possible but nothing was. Where my breath was held on just about every page yet I wanted to rant and rave on the depravity of it all. I had to read it to the end and for that I am so glad I did. It lead me to an author that has made my list. The mind is not all dark and it isn't all light either...
