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.
COMPELLING but BRUTAL
I love a dark book i can get my teeth into but even i found this difficult to read at times,as this story was brutal,harsh and down right vile in parts but the pure brilliance of this Auther captivates you with the sheer magnitude of what can happen to make you the person you are and keeps you gripped in this story and how it unfolds.
Oliver is a ordinary 18 year old girl going about her mundane life, she has no one special in her life untill she is plunged into a darkness that will change her forever,her life as she knew will be gone.
Caleb is her abductor a man that has no morals and all he wants is revenge and Oliver (livvie) is the end prise after he has trainer her in the art of slavery.
This story is about these two characters and how Caleb gets to kidnapp Livvie and keep her looked up to train her how to become a slave for the very people that helped him get out of slavery in his younger years.
We should hate everything he stands for but as its Livvie telling the story you get to find out the person Caleb is and god forbid you grow to understand him even though he is dispicable,i started to warm to this character even though i wanted to hate him.
This was genius and brave of this author to take on a topic as dark and disturbed as this and getting us the reader liking the abductor at the end where i needed to find out how it all unfolded in the next book.Pure genius.
Seduced in the Dark
What is the price of redemption?
Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.
The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.
Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?
Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?
GENIUS and CAPTIVATING.
If i loved the first book this book totally blew me away as it draws you back in to what happened with Caleb and Levvie’s story.You get an insight into Caleb’s past and what he went through to make him the man he was,he had a brutal upbringing which neally killed him.
I have never quite read anything like this before, it felt like it was someone’s true story with these two compelling characters.It was hard to put down as it was a rollocoaster of a book as there was so many twists that i never saw coming the more i got into the story.
Caleb is such a tormented man,unpredictable as to what he is thinking and feeling most of the time,but he starts to warm towards Levvie and you see a softer side to him,you just wanted the ending to be good for her.
They are on the road to another location after three and a half weeks together,they are staying at a house owned by one of Rafiq’s business partners and this is where Levvie meets Rafiq (Caleb’s mentor and boss) for the first time.Rafiq is the one that got Caleb out of slavery when he was only 14 so he feels like he owes Rafiq everything.
Levvie is a strong character but i felt for what she had to go through at this house with the monsters that lived and visited here for cruel pleasure.There is a lot of erotic sex that had me cringing for what she had to do for the pleasure of others,but the feelings that she was developing for Caleb her abductor was boarding on love.You grow to feel for Caleb and end up liking him, as sick as that sounds as he comes good in the end for Levvie.He tries to right all his wrongs when he finds out how and why he got to be where he was,it was very emotional for him.
The ending was not how i visualised it to be and had me on the edge of my seat waiting for this to be the ending i wanted.
CJ Roberts has amazing imagination as this series has keep me on the edge throughout these two books.She is pure genius.
