BOOK TWO OF THE DARK DUET
The exciting, titillating, and action-filled conclusion to Captive 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? It seemed to Caleb, the nature of human beings revolved around one empirical truth: we want what we cannot have. For Eve, it was the fruit of the forbidden tree. For Caleb, it was Livvie
My honest review:
Ok move over Christian Grey.. Caleb is the new dark man in town. I want to hate this sick sick man, but i felt just like Livie drown with Stockholm syndrome, and i just keep hoping that Caleb would leave the dark side, and i actually fell in love with him. I finished both book in one day. This series can’t be put down, period.
I must say i was utterly shock reading this book, it was nothing like the first book. The first book could be consider PG , compare to this one. The x-rated scenes just quadruple.
The only big complaint i have about this book is, that CJ Roberts decided to change her style of writing by adding 2 other side Character Sloan & reed, and then she decided to flicked through the present and past. I thought Capture in the dark’s writing was amazing, so i really hated the fact that i find some part of this book too draggy and repetitive. I don’t think Sloan & Reed’s Character were necessary at all, she could half the book and still deliver a thrilling and compelling story without exploring these characters much. (may be she’s doing this because reed sequel is coming out). I mean I’m not interested in Sloan’s knitting hobby or Reed’s fantasy i just want to know what’s going on with Livie & Caleb. Thus for that I’m giving a 4.5 stars.
