Captive in the Dark (The Dark Duet #1) by C.J. Roberts

Captive in the Dark
Captive in the dark it's not for the faint of hearts. It's probably a good idea to understand that this is a dark series, with a controversial subject matter which is very real unfortunately. It's about an eighteen year old Olivia Ruiz, who is kidnapped to be sold later as a sex slave. She will be beaten and raped.
Her captor Caleb has a dark past too. He was kidnapped himself and was abused as a child. The man who saved him (Rafiq) has made him do terrible things in the name of vengeance.
In real life this situation would be despicable but for some reason the attraction between Caleb and Livvie is completely believable. It helps that we get Caleb's POV's too.
Actually I know why this book works. It's because of C.J. Roberts. Don't know how she pulled it off. As soon as I finished reading it, I started book 2.

In all honesty it took me a while to read this one. My friend (Rebecca) loved this series and when we met for our annual girl trip she kept talking about this series.
I thought I wouldn't enjoy them because of the subject matter. But, I kept on hearing about this series and decided well I can put on my big girl panties and read it.
It didn't disappoint me, on the contrary I was enthralled by the writing. Livvie is a very strong person, she is fighter even though she is so young. Caleb- where do I start. I hate him at the beginning I liked him by the middle of the book and by the end I needed to grab the next installment.
I like that they are both survivors. She never really breaks and that is saying a lot.
4/5 Fangs
