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.

    "Slow moving but necessary to the foundation!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes and I have already!


    What other book might you compare Captive in the Dark to and why?

    None I have ever read but it has awake a whole new world of erotic to me and I cant get enough.


    Did Emily Durante do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did well but I felt like something was left to desired


    Did Captive in the Dark inspire you to do anything?

    Download more dark erotica!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    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.

    "Couldn't and wouldn't stop listening!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Captive in the Dark to be better than the print version?

    Honestly i Love both, but listening bought more of my imagination to life. i was focused on the characters and their interactions, the raise and fall of the narrators voices. i could feel what the characters were going through. great narration.


    What other book might you compare Captive in the Dark to and why?

    I'd compare it to Twist Me by Anna Zaries. another dark romance.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Durante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no i don't think so. but she did a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes i did.


    Any additional comments?

    i couldn't wait to read and listen to the next book.

    Story
    "Not for the faint of heart "

    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!

    Very dark but very human. My second time listening and it's as good as the first time.

    "these books are not easy reads."
    Any additional comments?

    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

    "Not the best"

    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.

    "The narrator ruined it for me"

    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

    Story
    "something different"

    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.
