My rating: 5 of 5 stars
WOW! What a phenomenal read! I don't think I have ever read a book that left me speechless like this one has. Ms. Roberts did an outstanding job writing these two books! They involved some very dark people and subjects like human trafficking and sex slaves. I just cannot put into words how much I loved this book. Parts of the story were very difficult to read because I always think about the characters and what they are feeling as well as what they go through. This story picked up where the first one ended and we learn more about Caleb's history in this book. We also learn that Olivia has been through hell and back but she is so strong and courageous throughout everything she is put through. Such a sad story, what happened to the this man when he was just a boy. I don't want to give anything away but the twists and turns were amazing and the ending....sigh........
I highly recommend this book but you must read the first one Captive in the Dark or you will be lost. These cannot be read as stand alone books! I will warn you they are dark and cover some serious issues that quite frankly made me stop and say "oh my God" because this $hit really happens. A few words for you Ms. Roberts. You are an extremely talented writer, I cannot believe you were turned down but holy he!! I bet there are people out there now that are saying to themselves damn we f***ed up HA suckers your loss because CJ is the bomb!!!Some quotes that I personally liked from this story are: "I know what I want, Reed, and if you can't give it to me...you're shit out of luck. After what I've been though, I don't care what you think you can do to me."
"I don't want revenge, Caleb. I don't want to end up like you, letting some f***ing vendetta run my life. I just want my freedom. I want to be free, Caleb. Not someone's whore...not even yours."
I chose the path of least resistance and greatest pleasure.
and last but not least my dearest Caleb "I'm sorry," he whispered.
