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 honest review:
Sheer Mind FUCK read!!! Disturbingly dark. What did I just read?! This book feels like the movie Taken fused with Fitty Shades of Grey. Just Outstanding!
Before you decide to read this book, just make sure you have the second book (Seduce in the Dark) ready, as the Cliff hanger in this book is brutal.
This book takes you from both Caleb & Olivia point of view. Caleb a man with a dark past has been plotting for his revenge for the last 12 years of his life. For his final plan, he needs to kidnap a virgin to act as slave offering for his arch enemy. He has trained many slaves before and this one job should be an easy one, but he underestimate his captive this time and unexpectedly harbour a feeling for her instead. Livie looks like an easy target, she comes from a poor family a perfect candidate to be kidnap & trained and sold as slaved, but she’s smart and wilful and try to do what ever she’s able to get her freedom back, but she couldn’t help to fall for his handsome captor. Will she escaped? Will she pull Caleb out from his dark side?
There’s some gruesome & disturbing explicit scene in this book. I really want to hate Caleb for all the awful things he did to livvie but i can’t , the stockholm syndrome is really getting in to me. Definitely a page turner, I can’t put this book down, and now I have to start reading num 2 straight away. Go Get a COPY !
