Epilogue: The Dark Duet: Book 3 | [CJ Roberts]

Epilogue: The Dark Duet: Book 3

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "It was one helluva unforgettable ride!"

    WOW... Epilogue is an incredibly, passionate, and oh, so very sexy ending to a compelling, sizzling, deeply felt, dark, edgy, twisted, devastatingly beautiful story that screwed with my head, ripped my heart out, and then put it back together by the end. I LOVE Caleb and Livie's story.  Epilogue is Caleb’s story- completely from his pov, it shows his innermost thoughts, his feelings, and his growth. Caleb give us his side of the story.. what happened after we left off in The Dark Duet. Overall, this story was entertaining, captivating, and a must listen for all who have invested in ‘The Dark Duet" series. If you haven’t started The Dark Duet, you are really missing out. Caleb is rough around the edges, but he is charming, funny, intriguing, and sexy as hell! It was wonderful to see Caleb and Livvie’s journey after everything.

    "Another good story ruined by the narrator"

    This narrator was like listening to a robot read a text book. There was no emotion whatsoever and no change from one character to the next. Definitely not a good choice for a romance/erotic story. This was a great conclusion to the series and I enjoyed the POV of Caleb but the narration just ruined it for me. If you enjoyed the first two books do yourself a favor and skip the audio - get the print version instead.

    Story
    "Good moments, but overall lacking"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I think I would have preferred reading this one, but overall, the tone of Epilogue was juvenile and it didn't match the first two books in the series. It felt like a quickly written response to fans who wanted more from a story that had ended so well already in the Duet.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked a few of the tender moments. I liked finding out what happened in the gap between the end and the epilogue of Seduced in the Dark.

    The least interesting is Epilogue's epilogue 2.0--it is the most juvenile of juvenile commentary in the book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Elmer?

    Let me say this first--I think Anthony Elmer has a good voice. I think he would bode well with comedy, or even the Brothers In Arms series. As Caleb/James, not so much. Another point in his favor is that I think the actual writing lent itself to a bubblegum interpretation.

    Mostly though, he needed the accent that Emily Durante, or anyone who could do it justice, could portray. He read way too fast, and the characters seemed way more comical than the serious ones we had grown accustomed to in the Duet. If he'd read with more even pace and sensuality, I think I would have been able to overlook the missing accent (some). Still, the tone of the writing was what drastically changed.


    Could you see Epilogue being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, but the Duet may bode well on Cinemax.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though Caleb and Livvie were "above ground" in this book, I think it was too light. It was difficult to go from an erotic scene, or a (borderline) anger scene, to most of the others, because it was so OMG--so Twitterverse--so Sweet Sixteen. I purposely used that terminology to put you in the frame of mind I was in as I listened, after expecting to read about the adult challenges of two broken people trying to make a twisted love work, without the comfort of seclusion. I don't think you can go back to being a bubblegum teen after being human trafficked. Thankfully, I don't know for sure, but that's my best guess. The series would have ended better at book 2.

    "Dark but addictive."
    Where does Epilogue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was shocked by the series and still can't let go of it, however Epilogue smoothed the edges for me. I'd give it an 8 because I was so effected by this series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I could actually feel so much of everything by reading this story. Fear, hate, pity, shock, betrayal, love, loyalty.


    Did Anthony Elmer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I enjoyed hearing a man's voice, however he was reading it and the emotion was just not there for me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love can shed light on the darkest hearts


    Any additional comments?

    Some how you can't put it down, dark and shocking but you come to the surface in the end, phew!

    "A disappontment"

    I loved the first two and listened/read (did whisper sync) both, but I just couldn't get into this one. I think part of it was the voice just didn't fit what I had in my head for the character and part of it was that the story was pretty good being over after book two.

    "So disappointed in the narration!"

    I really liked this series but this listen was very disappointing. I liked the idea of knowing what happened to Caleb and Livi and the story provided many answers but the narrator made Caleb, the murderer, sex trafficker and sadist sound like a boyscout...it was just hideous! Please no more until you can get the narrator right!

    Story
    "I Need Help because....I Love Caleb/James. Gah"
    Would you listen to Epilogue again? Why?

    Of course I will listen again. Just to hear Caleb/James grovel to Livie or Sophia. For once our girl has the upper hand in this relationship. She is also a survivor. She is okay.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Epilogue?

    When Caleb was not sure Liv wasn't playing him. He was not sure if she will send him to jail or not. He is not sure of himself! Hah, that's a first.


    Which character – as performed by Anthony Elmer – was your favorite?

    James/Caleb of course.


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

    Both of course. It made me cry to see these two damaged people happy at last, at the same time, I am ecstatic for them.

    Story
    "All I needed to to end on a satisfied note"

    Ok so this was the perfect way to round out this story. The way C.J wrote from Caleb/James pov was awsome and gave much needed insight into this book and the previous two. I can't say enough good things about this story. BUT! Who oked the narration I don't know but it was awful. Not the narrators fault, your voice is your voice, but having gone from a deep heavily acented gruff voice to a sarcastic young sounding voice just threw me. It made it really hard to get into it for me. The story was great but the narration really messed it up.

    "Surprisingly different than the first two books"
    Any additional comments?

    I was surprised to find a young adult story in front of me when I started listening to this audiobook. It is true that both of them were young and are now trying to start from scratch... The story is very light, yes enjoyable at times and funny, and very sexy. But its at a 180 degree turn to where the two left off. I did want Caleb and Livvie to have a happy ending somehow, but it sounded a bit too easy for my liking. I give 4 stars just because Livvie finds some peace at the end.
