Product Description

Product Description

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 (Featuring Determined to Obey) and not meant to be read as a stand alone. However, it is possible to enjoy it as such if one prefers.


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.

Wrongfully accused by Nancy of the attempted rape and subsequent assault of Caleb’s escaped captive, “Kitten”, Kid is tortured by his captors.

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

HASH(0xa4782c54) out of 5 stars Loved it! Nov. 11 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

This review might contain spoilers for the Dark Duet series:

I came into Determined to Obey with a visceral remembrance of Livvie and Caleb’s story from the Dark Duet series. It was a great story, and I felt like one of the strengths of Dark Duet was that it had several secondary characters with rich backstories of their own. I was intrigued to see how this new three-way dynamic would play out. This novella gave us a chance to wrap things up with some of those characters without adding an extraneous plot, or rehashing too many things we’d already seen in detail with Livvie and Caleb. It felt fresh and familiar.

Celia and Kid made a big impression on me when I read Dark Duet (I’m trying really hard not to put a lascivious winky face in here), and Felipe was a mysterious, scheming man that we only got a brief, naughty taste of. But it wasn’t nearly enough to satiate my curiosity about them. All you knew for sure was that Kid was paying the ultimate price for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that Celia and Felipe were head over heels in love with each other, even as they struggled to completely trust and give in to that twisted love.

Celia and Felipe were a crucial part of the Dark Duet plot, but more than that, they served as a parallel couple, a foil for Caleb and Livvie and a glimpse at the good and bad that awaited them in the future. So, where did Kid fit into this? Was this sweet boy doomed, or did Celia and Felipe have hearts? And if so, did those hearts have room in them to love one more person, someone that could be the glue that finally bound Felipe and Celia together in spite of the past?

Well, Determined to Obey answered those questions in a way that kept me reading until I finished it in one sitting. It was a wonderful indulgence, a hot, sexy, unconventional love and lust story that managed to be full of heart. It borrowed from the suspense of events we saw unfold for Caleb and Livvie because both stories are happening concurrently, but this story stood on its own two feet. By the end I was hoping for Kid, Celia and Felipe to find their kinky HEA. Each had suffered a great deal on their own and despite the seedy underworld they occupied and their seedy pasts, you wanted them to heal together.

I loved the glimpse into each character's motivations and desires. I loved the unabashed and detailed sex scenes. I loved it all, and I commend Roberts for giving each character room to move and feel within the confines of this erotic novella. It’s a great companion piece, a great singular piece, and it’s very much a product of CJ Roberts' brilliantly twisted mind.

BRILLIANT! The Dark Duet series, and all related books will forever be my favorite. CJ.. No words. You're amazing!!

HASH(0xa4782f84) out of 5 stars Yowza! This is one scorching hot read! Nov. 11 2014

Now this is how you write a novella from another character's pov! Absolutely amazing and third degree burns hawt! Seriously. This is not just a retelling. We get the real behind the scenes action of what else was going on while Caleb and Kitten were falling in love.

Kid really is a good, sweet boy. Felipe really does love him and his Celia. But most surprising was Celia's back story. I wasn't sure how to feel about her in Seduced in the Dark but I have a new found respect for her and what she's been through.

We get snippets of Caleb and Kitten but we also learn what Felipe and Celia really think of them.

All great stuff. Loved it.

HASH(0xa4782e7c) out of 5 stars DAMN. THIS. BOOK! Dark, Wonderful, and Touching. <3 Dec 2 2014
By Tiffany (TLC4YOU) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 STARS!!

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! <3

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.

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

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

This series is so addictive. Your heart races from the fear, from the pain and from the raw twisted love. You can't help but get sucked in and find yourself wanting more. It is not often that a writer can captivate your mind so that you feel all the emotions of the character. You feel the anger, the hatred,the evil,the fear and in the end the twisted love. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.
