Publisher's Summary

My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I'm the villain of this story.

I've decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you'll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn't there.

Don't mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.

She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he wants. That's me.

I'm the bad guy.

Wonderfully depraved and delicious

⚠️ warning ⚠️ this isn't a lighthearted rom com, it's not contemp romance, it's dark, it's depraved, and if you like that sort of thing (like me) then you'll love it like I did. It's literally about a psycho path who kidnaps the woman he lusts after. Somehow Celia does an amazing job at making me fall in love with bad guys. The narrators were perfect for these characters!!!

WOW, THIS AUTHOR CERTAINLY DELIVERS

After finishing Celia Aaron’s wonderfully dark and delicious Acquisition Trilogy I knew I wanted more of this gifted author’s work.. and this story certainly didn’t disappoint. Because she managed to make me swoon and fall in love with Sebastian, a handsome, sexy, psychotic, rich business tycoon who, from the moment he met Teacher Camille, became obsessed. And he handled it in the only way he knew how.. by kidnapping her, spoiling her and keeping her in his gilded mansion.

Camille had been torn away from the life she knew.. from friends, from her much loved career and from her boyfriend.. a boyfriend she couldn’t commit to because something was missing.. and Camille found that something in her kidnapper’s arms. Sebastian lacked the empathy gene but he made up for it with his caring words, his thoughtful acts, his possessive ways and his sexual touches. But she was still a prisoner and, until she was free and able to make her own choices, Camille was always going to run.. and Sebastian was always going to catch her because Sebastian couldn’t live, couldn’t love and couldn’t function without her.

Worth a credit? Yup 100% YES. It was unique, refreshing and a really enjoyable dual POV story.. it captured my thoughts and possessed me as the plot line slowly unravelled to reveal a real gem of an awesome story. This is my own personal take.. but I’ve listened to dark before and I just didn’t get that vibe from this riveting listen that had angst, drama, sexcapades and touching tender times as two souls connected and got things deliciously wrong.. before they got things oh so right. Well done Ms. Aaron (insert clapping sound here) another five star story.. and I couldn’t fault the excellent narration either.

Focused Alpha with kink

Who wouldn’t want a smoking hot alpha masturbating underneath her bed while they slept? This girl would! This story is hot, hot, hot. It was also emotional and spoke of real life issues such as emotional and physical abuse, OCD, and hoarding. This audio shined a light on things most people like to keep in the dark. I applaud the author for how well and honest she infused these issues into her story. The narrators did a good job of pulling out the emotions that were needed in the characters in order for it to flow and be believable. If you’re not sensitive to the issues mentioned above and love a side of kink. This audio is a great listen.

LOVED THIS PSYCHOPATH

OMG, I fell in love with this book and the author. This was such a great listen. There is some hot, steamy sex. Some of the things Sebastian did had me laughing out loud. I couldn't believe how he thought that some of the things he did was ok. Narrators did a fantastic job.

Celia makes you love the bad

You think good and bad is a clear cut line but Celia Aaron is so good at making her villains so incredibly appealing. Can a captive situation be love? See for yourself.

I want to scream I love this book so much. I read it before I listened to it and I highlighted a good portion because Celia makes so many thought provoking points. There are no lulls. Every minute is full of excitement, sexiness, suspense... I just loved it. My favorite. But I think I say that about all of them.

Lance, Stephen and Erin were great. They each depicted their characters perfectly and pulled off the secondary characters. Excellent narration.

Yes he's crazy but I kinda like it?😳

Wasn't sure about this one at first. Didn't realize there were two male narrators, silly me. Totally worth the credit in my opinion. Everybody needs a lil crazy sometimes 👍

WOOOOHOOO THAT WAS GREATNESS!

I was ify on the subject matter. I haven't read or listened to many kidnapp fantasy but I REALLY loved this one. I know the narrators made all the difference because if I had just read this it wouldn't have been as good. Defiantly a must listen!

Awful doesn’t begin to describe this work of fiction

First off, let me begin by saying I am in no way prudish, nor am I easily offended. I enjoy Cherise Sinclair, JR Ward, Kresley Cole, and Olivia Cunning as authors, to name a few. So this review is not based on ‘“OMG such dirty writing”. If anything, that might have helped it along if there had been more scenes. This was one of the worst books I have read and listened to on Audible. The male narrator sounded as if every sentence built to a crescendo, And if you could see him reading, the veins on his neck would constantly be sticking out everywhere. Way over dramatized. The story was definitely dark, but not sexy. This was psychologically dark. Stalking, invasion of privacy, kidnapping, Stockholm syndrome ensuing, having sex with someone in order to keep them from killing someone else... This explored psychotic behavior more than someone darkly romantic and misunderstood. I didn’t enjoy anything about this book, including the narration. I don’t even think Sebastian York could have saved this one. Bottom line, save your money and or credit.
