Captive in the Dark (The Dark Duet, #1)

Captive in the Dark - C.J. Roberts It's a good idea. The prose flows. There are no typos or editing problems. That said, I found it simply unsatisfying. Caleb is supposedly a great trainer of slaves and kidnaps Olivia to train her for the slave market. I was excited to read what this training would consist of - sadly, what actually followed was a confused muddle of waffling interspersed by a beating of two, followed by more waffling, and no training whatsoever. He doesn't try to teach her a single behavior, other than insisting that she call him master. After reading this book, my opinion of Caleb is that I wouldn't trust him to train a dog. No wonder the poor girl was so confused. Also, the story is clearly just the beginning of a series, and the end of this book was just too abrupt, without resolving even a small story arc.
