Series: The Dark Duet #3
Author: C. J. Roberts

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.
Epilogue is the third book in the Dark Duet series by author C.J. Roberts.
I was looking forward to reading Epilogue ever since the first book in the series. I was sucked into the dark tale of slavery in Captive in the Dark. Seduced in the Dark took you even further into the story giving us the aftermath and the fallout from Livvie’s captivity. With Epilogue, we get to read about Caleb’s POV, the reunion between the two, and the ‘epilogue’ of their future.
This story started out with Caleb speaking to the reader of the story. We get to learn what happened after he finally finds Livvie and they reunite after being separated for so long. We get to see them both have to deal with the past and the pressure it puts on in them now. While I enjoyed the reunion and the couple dealing with getting over their past issues, I did feel like the last half of the book was repetitive and a let down. It seemed like the sex of the relationship took over and we started going in circles again. I feel that the story could have ended 3/4 of the way into it and it would have been fine.
Even if the ending was a bit of a disappointment to me, I still feel like the author did a wonderful job in giving readers what was needed for the final book. We get to read from Caleb’s POV and we get to finally enjoy the closure that we needed after the long journey we were set on.
