#Review #Dark #DarkDuet – Seduced in the Dark (The Dark Duet #2) by C.J. Roberts

Seduced in the Dark (The Dark Duet, #2)

BOOK TWO OF THE DARK DUET
The exciting, titillating, and action-filled conclusion to Captive in the Dark.

What is the price of redemption?

Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.

The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.

Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?

Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

Quote:
It seemed to Caleb, the nature of human beings revolved around one empirical truth: we want what we cannot have. For Eve, it was the fruit of the forbidden tree. For Caleb, it was Livvie.

Goodreads

Holy broken and ruined for all other men….Caleb is the Anti-hero you love and have no business loving and then….and then ..and then you find out EVERYTHING and then…then…then you break for him.  Seriously I cried for Caleb at time or two.  I had a lump in my throat for this ruined man.  This soul who falls in love with Livvie knowing he can’t have her.  She can’t be his no matter what.

This book picks up and Livvie is in FBI custody…yay she didn’t get sold buuuuut then we find out *Gasp* Caleb is not around.  We are having to listen to Livvie retell the story after the end of book 1.  We learn so much about Caleb and his desire for Livvie but also wanting to make his mentor happy. He is a hot, confused mess.  I mean how do you turn your back on your mentor, your savior when your vengeance is so close at Livvie’s cost???  Caleb has a lot to think about and also come to terms with about his and Livvie’s future.

The twists are so crazy in this book.  The betrayals are so epic in this book. I was BLOWN AWAY when the bombs start dropping and all the secrets are spilled.  Caleb and Livvie have a lot of drama to contend with IF they are to make it out alive and make it out alive together.

Seriously, Caleb……can we talk about him.  I cannot wait to read book 3 because I am dying to know his POV on everything Livvie shared with us because he says she was “kind” in her retelling.  I am certain Caleb isn’t all hearts and flowers but since he feels he doesnt serve her to begin with I think he will be a bit harder on himself in the long run of it all.  But *sigh* he loves her and that is all I need to know.
