Summary (cr: goodreads)

(The final version should have 15 Chapters + an epilogue)

I’m writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging. In fact, you probably know too many things and know them far too well.

Who am I?

Well, that’s what I’m trying to figure out. I was a whore in my youth, a killer since my adolescence, and a monster as a man. I am the man who kidnapped Livvie. I am the man who held her in a dark room for weeks. But, most importantly, I am the man she loves.

She loves me. It’s quite sick, isn’t it?

Of course, there’s more to our story than can be surmised in a few short sentences, but I’m at a loss for justifying my behavior back then. I assume if you’re reading this, I don’t need to make those justifications. You’ve already made your own.

You’re reading this because you want to know about the rest of the story. You want to know what happened that warm summer night in September of 2010, the night I met Livvie at The Paseo. It was the night my life changed all over again.

It didn’t happen exactly as Livvie said. She’s been very kind to me in the retelling of our story. The truth is far more…complicated.
My Review: (also in goodreads)

Finally. I wouldn't even call it the third and final installment after Captive of the Dark and Seduced in the Dark. Since The second book ended that way, I guess fans wanted to know more. And I think that this book is sort of a gift from the author for the fans. And what more could the fans ask for but a book narrated by Caleb! This was sort of like taking peek into the mind of the captor Caleb and how he adjusts into Livvie's new life. There are some parts where it was a bit hazy since there were some questions like: so they lived happily ever after (sort of) how will they handle it when everyone knows he's alive? But I guess it was time for them to get their version of a happy ending.

Till the next read...
