Book Review: Captive In the Dark by C.J Roberts.

Title: Captive in the Dark.
Author: C.J Roberts
File Type: ebook

I read this book because it's dark , compelling and I don't exactly know why.
Could be because of those shiny ratings or could be because I found the whole concept really cool..
I'm not into torture. Nor am I into pain.
I'm one of those people who believe in candies and chocolates and shiny rainbows and fairy-tales.
So when books that tread the murky waters of BDSM , kidnap or just simple plain torture..I usually proceed with caution. When it came to Captive in the Dark , I JUST JUMPED INTO IT! (without any hesitation.)

And OKAY!! I'll admit it!
Part of my book lusty attraction towards this one was due to the sole fact that it has a Caleb and an Olivia as main protagonists.
(Olivia and Caleb were the names of the protagonists of The Opportunist and I LOVE THAT BOOK SO MUCH!!)

This is your synopsis in simple , easy words...

A guy wants revenge. He has been through a really poopy childhood. The dude is well a beauty and a beast in a single body. So he comes up with this poopy plan like many other poopy things in the world, he plans to kidnap a girl.....He plans to kidnap her , train her and then send her into her own very sexy espionage sex game where he would finally exact his revenge on the bad guy.
The thing is , When he made up this poopy plan he never thought of it's effects on him.
He never thought for even that one not-so impossible moment that he would start liking the girl..
And as for the girl..well she's trapped , for hells sake! But anything can happen..so she falls for him too. 
But it gets more and more complicated and this is where are story flows.

My thoughts about this whole reading experience is in kind of a mumbo jumbo.
I'm still trying to sort out my feelings. Do I feel happy? Weirdly I do. Was it brutal? Hell yes. Did want to throw the book away? Totally. But could I abandon it? Hell no.
So here's how it's going to be..I love the book because it's mad and it's dark.
I love it because even though it's disgusting on epic levels ..it's wonderful.
And even though I think that Olivia is a grade A donkey when it comes to survival skills ..I'd still stand up and give her a huge hug and a motivating pat on the back.

Now onto the next book..*Rushes to buy it*


  1. The book is dark, but i loved it. It got under my skin, and in my dreams. :O

  2. I'm glad you loved it! Because I loved it too! The book was dark and I did felt like something was wrong with me because of the way I really enjoyed reading something so dark and brutal...I'm happy I'm not the only one!

  3. The cover gives off a seriously dark vibe. I am not one to read any books that are even remotely close to erotica. I am just not a fan. This sounds like it is so much more than just that though. How in the world can you fall in love with your kidnapper who wants to sell you, basically? I don't know, but I have a weird interest in it though. Hmmm
