My honest review:
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read this review if you haven’t read the previous books
Ohhh wow wow wow.. so frecking hot!!..The perfect epilogue to the captive series!!! It was short but I love it.
I enjoy reading the insight of Caleb’s head. I was completely swooned by him. This book is not a psychological thriller as the previous books were, but it’s more about Caleb struggles to win back Livvy’s trust and finding their happy ending.
“Caleb will always be part of me- probably the largest part. I want to be James. James is 29-years old from Oregon”
Finding a happy ending after what they been through is not easy, their struggles are raw but I love every moment of their journey, I love watching Caleb grow to find balance in the man he was and the man he want to be. My heart was pounding fast reading each declaration of their love, My heart ached reading their pain, and I can’t help laughing to the way Caleb see certain things.
“Yeah, but I’m the second most fucked up person I know, and when you put two negatives together, you get a positive. That’s math, Caleb. Math is the language of the universe. You can’t argue with the universe.”
― C.J. Roberts, Epilogue
“Claudia! That’s not for snacking, you bitch.” Livvie spanked the other girl on the ass and both of them giggled.
Girls are so strange. If another man called me a bitch and spanked me, it would not end in giggles.”
― C.J. Roberts, Epilogue
The story was heartfelt and written beautifully. And the sexing just make me squirm & go hot flushed! holy erotic smut-tastic ! that kinky last chapter will be imprinted in my head for ever!
I’m writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging. In fact, you probably know too many things and know them far too well.
Who am I?
Well, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I was a whore in my youth, a killer since my adolescence, and a monster as a man. I am the man who kidnapped Livvie. I am the man who held her in a dark room for weeks. But, most importantly, I am the man she loves.
She loves me. It’s quite sick, isn’t it?
Of course, there’s more to our story than can be surmised in a few short sentences, but I’m at a loss for justifying my behavior back then. I assume if you’re reading this, I don’t need to make those justifications. You’ve already made your own.
You’re reading this because you want to know about the rest of the story. You want to know what happened that warm summer night in September of 2010, the night I met Livvie at The Paseo. It was the night my life changed all over again.
It didn’t happen exactly as Livvie said. She’s been very kind to me in the retelling of our story. The truth is far more…complicated
