Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Dark and disturbing...yet captivating!"

    This book is extremely dark and disturbing… but I loved every minute of it! I wonder what this says about me? The content of this book is genuinely disturbing and perverse, and many times I had to take a break to clear my head. There is abduction, brutal beatings, rape, murder, and it’s full of humiliating events in very realistic detail. All of this being said it really is a love story. CJ Roberts really pulls this one off. She makes you care for Caleb and want him to get Olivia in the end even after all of the horrible and dehumanizing scenarios he puts her though. For me this book gets five stars across the board.

    It’s a very intense and dark listen but 100% worth my credit.

    Story
    "Just porn"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    What can I say? This book is just porn. Nothing of interest here. Shallow story that never really gets any better.


    What was most disappointing about CJ Roberts’s story?

    Besides the fact that it was just porn, you only get half a book. Thinking that it might pan out in the end, you reluctantly buy the other half of the book, only to realize, it too is just ridiculous porn. I really don't mind adult themes, if there's an interesting story to go with it.


    What didn’t you like about Emily Durante’s performance?

    The men's voices just aren't that great read by a woman trying to make it sound husky.


    What character would you cut from Captive in the Dark?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    The author was very clever splitting the book in half to sell you 2 books. The first book has no real focal point, no conclusion. You have to buy the 2nd half to "finish" the story.......and even then, it's so anticlimactic......just dumb, dumb, dumb. I don't know maybe you need to buy a 3rd book to get anything out of it......not.

    "Everything was perfect!"

    The narrator not only successfully voices the story, but does so in a way that envelopes you deep into the stories center.

    "Not what I expected. "

    it was very slow going. I felt obligated to finish it to see if it would get better. I would definitely not recommend this book.

    "Where is the rest of the book?"

    This story ended very abruptly leaving me wondering what happened ? Did I miss some parts? What happens next? Leaving me somewhat disappointed looking for the real ending.

    Story
    "On my toes."

    The storyline was a bit slow to pick up but I'm glad because it gave you a chance to learn a little about the characters. it also did flashbacks to learn how Caleb came to be who he was today. now, I need to find part 2. Im extremely curious to see how this plays out and what Kitten decides to do.

    "Love/Hate/Love"

    I purchased this book quite some time ago. I couldn't bring myself to listen. After reading other reviews I just kept putting it off. After finally listening I have decided I hate this book as much as I love it. If anyone else is hesitating I fully recommend you listen/read.

    "Not Romance"

    I was anticipating a dark romance. I got the 'dark' but not the 'romance'. In saying that, the book was well written and the narration was fantastic. The story just wasn't for me.

    "I felt like a Captive in the Dark Story"

    This is a dark story about a sick subject. The characters were not developed enough to be likable or believable.

    Story
    "morbidly entrancing"

    hotel is very well-told. It is a dark, erotic, entrancing story where you get to understand both points of view. The captor and the captive. As disturbing as some portions were it wrapped itself around my mind and pulls me into a dark place that I need to know what happens next. I actually bought both of the next two books before I even finish this one. Very well done!
