Monthly Smutty Book Club - Captive in the Dark by CJ Robert
Thank you to everyone who came to October’s Smutty Book Club! Thank you to Martina and everyone at Jack Demsey’s for giving us a home for the past year! And thank you to Geraldine for your first day as our waitress. We hope we didn’t scare you away! Welcome new members! Kate from Brooklyn Smutty Book Club who traveled over the bridge to join us! Mike from Beer Fest, who is really Tiffany and Helen’s friend! Ophir from Israel who has only been in New York for a month and a half – you found the right group to hang with! New business: Erin had so much fun throwing weapons at the RenFest, so stay tuned for an archery event listed by Erin for November. We’re going to Gotham Archers in Brooklyn (because Brooklyn is cheaper than Manhattan). It will be $35 for an hour lesson. Next month’s book is recommended by Audra and Lesley1. Captive in the Dark by CJ Robert. This is a human trafficking book, but it’s a really interesting story. Audra says, “Yes 80% of the book club, will not like the book at first. Please keep reading, push through. Audra and Lesley say that even if you don’t like the book you will have a lot to say about it. This is about a young girl who is 18 years old in a family that is 'overlooked' (meaning poor and violent). It also deals with the sex trade, human trafficking, revenge, and a bit of Stockholm aspect." Here’s what the publisher says: BOOK ONE OF THE DARK DUET: 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, naïve 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. WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, and graphic violence. Smutty Book Club!
