I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
It took me a little while to adapt to the biker lingo but once I did I was hooked! I'm warning you that you need to keep an open mind. This writer is bringing you into this biker world which means they have their own language. Lets just say they express themselves differently. The plot kept me interested. In a way, it reminded me of the show Sons of Anarchy. This biker club is about loyalty and family. Shy & Tabby are some serious hotness!! Shy is all Alpha but deep down has a sweet side. They took forever to show their true feelings for each other but worth it when the story ends with an HEA! This book had tragedy, comradery, passion, badassness, and heartfelt moments. I happened to like the book and found all the characters interesting. I will continue with the series.
Tiffany Reisz's storytelling abilities are extraordinary. It takes a talented author to take a reader completely out of their comfort zone, yet keep the same reader compelled not to want to put it in down. I’m not always comfortable with everything I read in this series. I do keep an open mind and I am captivated enough by the story to keep reading. Not only was the story captivating, but I was invested in these characters. Having read a few of these books I thought that I knew the characters well enough. Nope. Not a chance. Ms. Reisz continues to surprise me as I learn more and more about each character and the world they live in. This book is hard to review without spoiling big parts so I apologize its vague. Only con: narrator's voice seemed a bit young but still did a decent job.
This book makes you honestly feel horror, disgust, pity, anger, lust, shame, hatred, love...I promise all types of emotions. It's dark, twisted and disturbing on so many levels but still I just could NOT stop!! At times, I really hated some of the things that happened, but the story was so intensely addictive that I couldn't help but love, love, love it!!! Captive in the Dark starts off with two men planning revenge. Caleb & Rafiq both seek the death of one man by the name of Vladek Rostrovich. But first Caleb has to secure a slave. The only way to get close to Vladek would be to enter a virgin slave into the Flower sale in Pakistan. Caleb has to get a girl & train her in six weeks, then go across the ocean to Rafiq in the middle east. Caleb finds Olivia. 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... I loved how honest she was with Caleb and how she would rebel against him. She had a true fighter spirit that could not beat out of her through the whole book. I won't give anything more away. You will just have to listen to this story without any expectations. I want to tell you how much I truly LOVED this story, and convince you all to buy this book.
