C.J. Roberts-Epilogue (The Dark Duet #3)

Adult Contemporary-18+

(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.

{5 stars}

An epilogue book? Yes! And it worked, I finished all 3 books in one weekend.....1000 pages, Whew! And I loved every step of this journey. The beginning is hard to grasp, it harsh. It may seem a little too much for some vanilla readers. But once you fall in love with Olivia, you stop thinking about how she became captive and start becoming mesmerized by her will to survive. Her survival instinct captures Caleb's heart and shows him that there is more to life than his vengeance. This series is a powerful dance between the two and I have been thinking about them all day long.......
