When I first started reading Seduced in the Dark, I almost thought I had missed a Novella that should have been read in between Captive and Seduced because Livvie wakes up in a hospital and she’s talking to the FBI, which is definitely not how the first book left off. But, the further I read, I started to realize that we are getting the end of the book in the beginning and Livvie is recounting everything that happened from the moment Caleb rescued her from the bikers and everything in between. I both loved and hated the story being told that way, though. I loved how it kept the suspense and the momentum of the story moving along, but I thought by adding Agent Reed into the mix and his POV was unecessary filler. He proved not to be an important character and just an officer she had to give a detailed account of her story too... same goes for Agent Sloan too. I could’ve done without hearing their stories and personal backgrounds and felt like I wouldn’t miss anything important to the plot.. it just moved the focus away from Caleb and Livvie. But that was the only thing I didn’t care for, which is the reason why I didn’t give this a full 5 stars.
I did, however, love to hate Caleb. He is so cruel, yet also so conflicted and protective over Livvie. He does care for her immensely, but he is loyal and in Rafiq’s debt and is desperately seeking revenge for his life being stolen from him when he was a boy.. so he’s conflicted on how he can save Livvie and not betray Rafiq at the same time. I didn’t understand how Livvie could even have an ounce of love for him, but...Stockholm Syndrome.. and I have to admit that in the end Caleb grew on me too. The ending was bittersweet and there were a few things that were left unresolved, but there’s the epilogue novella after this book so I’m hoping that ties up some loose ends.
Caleb is left with limited choices, as he has the option to proceed with the plan of revenge or take a different course of action that also has serious repercussions. Feeling a tremendous sense of loyalty to the person that gave Caleb a second chance is overwhelming, yet for the first time, Caleb is beginning to feel other emotions he’s trying to process. Knowing the level of manipulation Caleb employs to influence Livvie’s behavior is enough to make him second guess the authenticity of what she feels, however, it doesn’t change his feelings.
In the short time Livvie was in Caleb’s possession, her goal had always been to survive and escape. With the way she and Caleb met, it seemed to strengthen Livvie’s hope at times but it also put her at a disadvantage. As they continue on this path, true feelings become clear and while trying to battle his demons, Caleb punishes himself yet stakes his claim in a way that is foretelling.
With betrayal, action and kinkery, Caleb’s hand is forced and his reaction sets in motion a series of events that cannot be reversed. Trying to keep his promise to Livvie has always been paramount, and in doing so, the inevitable must occur in order to move forward.
To say I devoured this book would be an understatement. The multiple levels of dimension in the character development and plot kept me riveted. Livvie’s determination and vulnerability made her such an intriguing character. The dichotomy between naïve Livvie and captive Livvie was a constant reminder of Caleb’s duality of kindness and violence. That ever-present contrast creates incredible chemistry between these two characters. I admired Livvie’s tenacity while with Caleb and when apart.
In addition, the focus on Caleb and his past is absolutely fascinating. As the darkest parts of the human condition are revealed, the need for revenge is compounded. Caleb’s decisions weren’t always the right ones but he adhered to a code for a reason. Ultimately, the progression for these characters involved pain, redemption and strength and I loved the ending.
This series delves into dark subject matter in a complex way that shows how people can process the worst of situations but still have the ability to heal and love. I highly recommend this duet!
