"Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was. Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, nave and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him." --Amazon.… (mais)

Hmm...Well this is a different sort of beast. It's not romance. It's not erotica. It's not romantic suspense. But it has elements of each. It's dark and rather twisted. But compelling. Don't read it for the sex 'cuz there's hardly any. It kind of ends in the middle of things without even an HFN much less an HEA. There is obviously to be a sequel which I'm going to have to read to find out if he redeems his humanity and if her tough and capable side wins out over her sweet and love hungry side.

Very readable and well written though. ( )

I chose this book after hearing about it from a friend. It was an interesting read. The author did a good job bringing you into the characters. I found Caleb to be more likable than I thought he would be. With this story we are brought into the world of Master/Slave and Human Trafficking. Two different worlds that collided though, I wouldn't doubt this collision happens frequently in real life. Livvie, (sometime referred to as Pet most often as Kitten), is a young woman who is captured for her beauty and her innocence. She is to be made into a sex slave and will be used in a revenge plot. Livvie was a damaged child that left her vulnerable but also a survivor. Caleb is her kidnapper and Master of her training. He is a man of several levels. Much like Livvie he was a damaged child who was forced to survive. On some level he loves Livvie and is teaching her survival as much as he is teaching her to be a sex slave. Both characters are complex. The story line by itself is average. The two characters are what makes this book so interesting. You want Livvie to be the survivor yet you worry what that will do to her. Learning of Caleb's upbringing makes him so much more than the cold, indifferent man who kidnaps women to train and sell them. The psychological makeup of both characters intrigued me. Though the story line was average to me, I have to know more about the characters. The sexual scenes were well written without going overboard. Livvie must stay a "virgin" for the auction yet must have sexual knowledge. More psychological complexity. I am on to the second book in this trilogy. I recommend the book to adult readers who are interested in human trafficking, submissive/dominant relationships and are not easily offended. ( )

I keep adjusting my rating. At first I felt bad that I could enjoy this book. Awful things happened to the main characters, how could I find pleasure in that? So 1 star. I sat on it and realized I read horror books all the time and watch crime shows and awful things happen to those characters and I still enjoy the story. So up to 3 stars. Today I realized I won't be reading the sequel for a few reasons.... I don't really care what happens and I'm not invested in the characters long term. And, the sequel is too expensive and I rather read something else. So based on not wanting to spend anymore time with the story my opinion is now set on 2 stars.

And, I guess stories that have sexual violence is outside my reading preference. Human trafficking is too horrible, as we all know, but for me personally, I can't read stories that include it. I will avoid books like that in the future. ( )

This book was just dark and crazy and had some twists I never expected.

I couldn't put it down, and loved the way it went back and forth to the dark memories Caleb had.

I couldn't wait to read the other two. ( )

Not for people who can't handle dark, uncomfortable subjects but despite the typos and the theme, I liked the story and will definitely keep reading the series. ( )
