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 12 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.

Yes and I have already!

She did well but I felt like something was left to desired
Download more dark erotica!
I like this book the least out of all of them because it moved so slow. And by the time I was excitedly caught up in the book wanting to know what next it was over!! I'm happy I read it because it laid the foundation and build up for book #2. Book#1 was necessary for me to fall in love with Caleb and Liv and make book #2 sooooo delicious!
This is not the typical romance story. The first two books cause you to share more pain and dispare, with the characters, then any kind of happiness or warmth. You must be a mature reader, to understand it. You must be able to handle the lack of resolution; especially from the first novel. Even the end of the second, leaves you wanting. The Epilogue, smooths the rough edges, but I must admit, I want more. I could not sleep until I had finished all three novels; almost 27 hours straight. I couldn't stop listening.
If you aren't capable of handling the tougher realities in life; choose another book/series. If you have never had any darkness in your soul; you likely can't handle this. If you have, you may soul search, after you're done reading. Another Fifty Shades? Not Really. Am I glad I listened? Absolutely!
The biggest drawback, in my opinion, is the narrator's attempt with the male voices. I had to to just accept the poor attempt, in order to enjoy the author's emotional writing. Is it worth the 3 credits? I vote, YES!

This book blew my mind. I’m seriously disturbed at how much I loved it.
There were parts of the book where I was just in shock at what was happening. The purest HOLY SHIT moments you can imagine!
The whole initial concept of how easily someone can just disappear is deeply chilling.
I don't know what else to say except if you can keep an open mind, LISTEN THIS BOOK!!! Its absolutely AMAZING!! The ending is most definitely a cliffhanger with many unanswered questions, but the sequel is out
To me, this was a Fifty Shades of Grey "wannabe". I did not really like Fifty Shades of Grey either, but at least it was to be an apology for Fifty Shades of Grey. Can't explain it better than that.
I do not recommend it.
I wish they had gotten a guy to do the male narration. The woman who narrated it killed it for me. I couldn't set up the scenes in my head the way I wanted all I kept thinking about was this woman trying to sound like a man. *sigh* overall it's a great book, but I can't deal with the woman narrating it
An average everyday girl gets taken by surprise and her world is flipped upside down in a world she never imagined. There were a few parts in the book that got a little steamy and when they did the author did a great job of making you picture it, but for the most part it's all story. The narrator however, didn't make me feel emotion at all. In my opinion she was very monotone even when there should be yelling or screaming. All together, worth the credit but I don't see myself purchasing the next in the series.
The story is beyond mommy porn and also requires suspension of disbelief, though there are no vampires or lycanthropes.
My greatest complaint is that, like too many books on Audible, Captive in the Dark is only the first part of the story.
It is a half of the book. Had I known that detail, I would not have rented Captive in the Dark.
"Better than the book"
The way it was narrated, having pitch and tone made the book feel more alive. I loved it, loved it, loved it.
I have read this book a number of times and each and every time it grips me in a different way and on a different level..listening to it just took it to another level again.
The way she seemed to 'feel' what she was saying.
Love isn't always grown from kindness.
Well worth purchasing.
this is a twisted story, it properly you into a dark world, turns your stomach
"Drawn out & boring"
This tale is, in my opinion not very well written, I found I could not relate to the main characters (Olivia is like a whiny 12 year old & Caleb comes over like a total sleaze bag), there is simply too much of the same kind of thing happening throughout the story.
No, I wouldn't say it has 'put me off' this kind of genre but I feel I won't be looking out for this kind of story in the future.
In all honesty none of the scenes stood out.
Mainly the scenes which involve Olivia's 'training' which were neither believable or enjoyable.
The one saving grace of this story was Emily Durante's portrayal of Olivia (she has a lovely voice) and I would like to hear more of her narrations but overall I'm glad I only paid £4.99 for this story but I wish I had spent my money elsewhere.
