Review: Determined to Obey by CJ Roberts

Determined to Obey CoverTitle: Determined to Obey (The Dark Duet #3.5)
Author: CJ Roberts
Genre: Erotica/Novella
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Book description:

The character “Kid” appears in both Captive in the Dark and Seduced in the Dark.

This novella takes place in Mexico and follows Kid after he and his girlfriend, Nancy, are taken hostage by a group of men led by Caleb. Unbeknownst to Kid or Nancy, they are taken to the mansion of Felipe Villanueva, an eccentric crime boss with a taste for the taboo.

We join Kid in the dungeon, where he is about to meet Felipe and his companion Celia for the first time…

Warning: 18+ only. Very frank language, graphic sexuality and coercion. Do not read if M/M/F bothers you!

Determined to Obey is being published independently at the request of thousands of fans who already own Captive in the Dark, Seduced in the Dark, and Epilogue: The Dark Duet–known together as the Dark Duet series.

Determined to Obey was written as part of the bonus material for Dark Duet: Platinum Edition and not meant to be read as a stand alone. However, it is possible to enjoy it as such if one prefers.


I don’t even know where to start.

Well, yea, I do. I can begin by saying CJ Roberts is one HELL of a writer! The way she captures the dark (yet vulnerable) essence of each of her characters is incredible.

Every time I chat with friends about her books, we are always talking about how the heck she does what she does. How in the world does she make us love these characters that do such shocking, and sometimes horrifying, things!? And each time, the answer is plain and simple: because her writing is amazing. It’s raw, intense, thrilling, and full of heart. I mean, some of the things that are in these stories will make you cringe, but when you think about the books after you’re finished–and I mean really think about them– you’re left analyzing and counting all the reasons why this is one of the best series you’ve ever read! ❤

Determined to Obey (as it’s mentioned in the description) can be enjoyed on its own. However, to fully appreciate the story, it’s best to read the complete series. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed and you’ll be glad you did! 😉

I couldn’t wait to read this novella because, as you might’ve noticed already, I’m a huge fan of CJ’s. A new book (from a favorite author) that I can sink my nails into?! Count me in!

In this book, we become more familiar with people we’ve already been introduced to in the past “Dark Duet” installments: Kid, Celia, and Felipe.  Determined to Obey is their story, and is about the longing and acceptance of love.

Told from all three points of view, this novella isn’t about wanting and needing someone so badly, but holding back out of love and safety for the other (as in Caleb and Livvie’s story). No, this is all about knowing exactly what you want and finding ways to make the other person know and understand that they matter, and that they are needed and cared for.

From the very beginning, Celia and Felipe make it known to Kid what it is they see in him. He’s lovely to look at, but for them, he isn’t just a captive. He’s someone they want as part of their family. They see more in him than he sees in himself. Kid feels alone, and more confused than ever, now that he’s there out of his own will with nowhere to go. But as he gradually realizes, he’s never felt more wanted in his life.

Damn. This. Book.  Wonderful, and touching. ❤

Alright, that’s enough of my fangirling. Now GO and buy the book! 😀

**NOTE: The complete “Dark Duet” Series is now available in ONE set, a.k.a Platinum Edition. 🙂
