Comfort Food

 " . . . dark, provocative, and glaringly honest . . ." H. Turley, Reader

Emily Vargas has been taken captive. As part of his conditioning methods, her captor refuses to speak to her, knowing how much she craves human contact. He's far too beautiful to be a monster. Combined with his lack of violence toward her, this has her walking a fine line at the edge of sanity. Told in the first person from Emily's perspective, Comfort Food is a tale of erotic surrender that explores what happens when all expectations of pleasure and pain are turned upside down, as whips become comfort and chicken soup becomes punishment.


DISCLAIMER:

This book explores mature themes and is not suitable for those who can't handle them or minors. The author does not condone the behaviors carried out by her characters.

What Readers are Saying About Comfort Food:

"If you enjoy reading romance lightly drizzled with some vanilla sex and a dusting of fairy tale fantasies wrapped up in a happy ending, then this is probably NOT the book for you. If you want to expand your mind while reading a steamy hot BDSM psychological thriller with an mind blowing ending, then go ahead and give this a try. I dare you." - Wendy G


"This is a very unusual and good story that explores themes of power, control, dominance and enforced submission and the psychology of captivity, isolation and reliance, but as it turns out the story is told from the perspective of both the Dominant Master as well as Emily and her journey into submission." -Carocaro

"Kitty Thomas took me on a psychologically revealing roller coaster of a ride in Comfort Food. It's a story that explores dominance & control, forced captivity, sensory deprivation, non-con BDSM, & eventual forced submission..."  - Angela Wallace

"Comfort Food is crazy. Emily Vargas is crazy. Her captor is definitely crazy. And, after reading this book, I think I might be a little crazy. Can a book give you Stockholm syndrome by proxy? Because it definitely feels that way." -Letitia

"The exploration of Stockholm syndrome was insightful. To see conditioning techniques successfully applied was fascinating. This is a memorable tale; I certainly have never read a story like it. I read it in a few hours. The erotica was dark BDSM / master-slave."  - Sinfunni

" I wonder if perhaps I've read so much dark erotica that it's lost some of it's shock value for me. I know that the only acceptable feeling to have towards Mr. Tall dark and nameless is disgust yet I never quite made it there. I'm choosing not to look to far into what that says about me as a woman, but hey, its fiction. That makes it ok. Right?"  - Amazon Customer

"First let me start out by saying, this is DARK erotica. If you do not like this kind of book, don't read it...i get tired of reading reviews dissing the dark erotica/ dubious consent, stating it was "sooo uncomfortable" well don't read these titles, duh! Now for me, I love it. Dark Erotica is unpredictable, unconventional and most of all a whirl wind of emotions.
Furthermore, saying that you could not form an attachment to Emily and Master is like saying you didn't read the book, it was about nothing but Emily and Master. I guess if one is unable to get past the kind of twisted relationship they had, then it would be hard to form attachment." - Amanda Rae

"`Comfort Food' is dark erotica. Kitty Thomas is writing extreme BDSM erotic fiction - master/slave masochism without the simulated `tie me up, tie me down' sex games... The Wasabi of Erotica"  - Dee18

"I had read novels about bdsm and Stockholm syndrome but not like this. This one ruined many other books for me in that genre, lol, because it was that good (this is the one to beat). Comfort food crossed this little fine line between reality and fantasy . the majority of the books on the capture/kipnap/slavery theme you can view them like fantasy but Ms Kitty Thomas push the envelope taking it to a more realistic and plausible scenario. The severe case of Stockholm syndrome that Emily had towards Master is shocking, and let you wonder when does Stockholm syndrome grows into obsession or love."  - Jay Benitez

"My first dive into Dark Erotica and Kitty Thomas leaves me begging for more. As disturbing as Comfort Food is, it was also riveting. Emily Vargas has been taken captive, and in order for her captor to break her to his will, he removes the one thing she craves most--human contact. He tortures her with silence and offers comfort with chicken soup. And all too soon, Emily learns what it will take to get her abductor to give her what she craves."  - Love, Lust, Books

"riveting, sadistic, erotic in its own sense, and just plain excellent." -Kindle Customer

"You pretty much can't look up dark erotica without finding Comfort Food at the top of the recommendations, and I'm so glad I took the time to read it. As soon as I started I couldn't stop, and I don't say this lightly, but it was perfect. It was more about the mental stimulation than the sex, though there was sex. It wasn't as heavily detailed or the entire focus of the relationship, however. It was far more about the process of breaking someone, of making them something new, and Kitty Thomas managed this wonderfully." - Michelle

"While I have read some dark erotica, this book is the first of its kind. The BDSM world is pretty unknown to me. Aside from the fairly vanilla stuff we see on TVs or movies, this book does not pull any punches and pushes the audience into it." - acid_raine_burns


"My exposure to erotica has not been favorable. Enough is enough; and the graphic descriptions of conquests gets boring and overdone quickly. Therefore, I usually avoid it totally.

This work on the other hand, was very well done. The psychology of the captive/captor was very well presented. The material was well written and the erotica well placed in the story. The erotica was there but did not dominate or overwhelm the story. This is without a doubt the product of a talented author. I doubt if I will read more erotica; figure I'll quit while I'm ahead. However, this author is worth reading again."  Dan C. Boutwell

"The eroticism is in some ways explicit but not graphic and tastefully written to allow the imagination to work as well. At first I was afraid Emily's fear would remain the trigger for her obedience but it slowly evolved in to something else, something deeper that conveyed the steep emotions behind the erotic actions. When you strip away everything else, at the core Comfort Food is about a Master conditioning his slave." - Leontine's Book Realm

"I would say this story is not for the faint of heart. If you like "Consequences", "Seduced in the Dark" and more of the hard core erotica, Comfort Food will end up being one of your favorites. Even then, this is not a HEA/romance novel so don't go in expecting roses and candy for an ending." - Emily

"50 shades of twisted ; very compelling. Very dark and very erotic. Certainly a new twist in the erotic read." - Beckie

"I wondered if I really wanted to read a book about someone who was kidnapped but after reading all the excellent reviews and being drawn to BDSM themed books after reading 50 shades, I was absolutely capivated and think this is the best book I have read in a long time." - Megan

"Extremely interesting story!! The description is right - this is not HEA or Fifty Shades remake. This is much more of a psychological thriller/erotic story. I won't get into details to ruin it, but I recommend this book if you like to dabble in the dark erotic stories or if you are curious about them - This is a great place to start."  - CRFreads5012

"Wow, simply wow! I started this book last night and just finished it. I have to say I was blown away by it. It is not any kind of normal romance novel, so if that is what you're looking for, go somewhere else. The closest thing I can compare it to is Story of O. This is not Fifty Shades of Grey. This is an erotic novel pure and simple, very little romance is in it...If you want a challenging erotic novel, one that may remind you of Story of O, then this is a great book for you. If you want a romance novel featuring a cozy little love story, then pass this one by." - Charles M. Smith II

"I have read the Fifty Shades Trilogy and Seduced in The Dark, so the dark side of this book did not shock me too much. I really liked this author's writing, very descriptive and had me really into the book." - Kerri

"This was one of if not the most intelligent thought out and well written erotic stories I have ever read. The intelligence and well though out analytical voice of Emily was a welcome surprise to the usual flippancy most "heroines" in stories have. This was written in a way that I can share with friends who don't particularly share my interest in erotica or things BDSM (consensual or not). It was not overly explicit there was just enough to entice, to stimulate through subtlety rather than blatancy. All in all, Kitty Thomas has earned herself a spot on my must read list."  - C. Lauer


"I agree with another reviewer that it is not a BDSM book, it is about a women who is kidnapped and her control is stripped away one layer at a time. An immensely enjoyable, brilliantly written novel. Highly recommended. Not a romance novel, except in a creepy Stockholm Syndrome way."  - Lila

"I had an expectation of reading an erotic book loaded with BDSM themes, sex, violence and force. I didn't expect to have to think too much. While there were some of those components throughout, the book was so much more. For me, it became a psychological profile of someone going through an extremely traumatic experience and how she chose to deal with it. Surprisingly, the book changed my viewpoints in some ways, helping me recognize that themes such as a victims response to trauma, may not always be comfortable or conforming to society's norms. The probing of the character's thought processes was unexpected."  - Michael


"I would still recommend this to those with a particular taste for BDSM and kidnap type books...it was definitely a mind-blower...also I will never look at chicken noodle soup the same ever again."  - Sue B.

"This is an adult book with dark, disturbing themes of possession, BDSM, Stockholm Syndrome and more. But if you can take it, this book will definitely stay with you."  - Chris Jacobs

"This is not a run of the mill BDSM story that ends w/a fluffy happy ever after ending. This is a story of submission and surrender - the total capulation of one's self, mind and body to another through force and a will to survive. I had been warned that this was a dark story and it truly is. I wanted something that I could sink my teeth into and not wrapped up in a pretty little package...and I got it. If you looking for something that is soft this is not it. But if you are willing to step off the deep end and are ready for a intense story, this is it."  - Jacque

"I want to preface this review by saying that I've struggled to finish reading a lot of mediocre books lately. I didn't realize what a gem I had lurking under the benign title of Comfort Food.

There was no "struggling" to read Comfort Food. The narrative was smooth and easy to read, and pulled me in immediately. I knew by page 3 that I would not be reading anything else until I finished this book, even though the characters were sometimes difficult to like, and the story isn't exactly nice.

Apparently I don't require nice. Some didn't find this story erotic, but I did. I think this is GREAT erotic bdsm, although if you like BDSM light, sweet, 100% consensual, and romantic - then this one might not be to your taste."  - Sheri Johnson

"As a female reader of erotica I sometimes find, especially in the bdsm genre, the author is too quick to the 'spanking and chains' not this time. The author takes her time to build an actual story and relationship, allowing you to connect with Emily and what she is going through. She manages to touch on each aspect that make the Master/slave relationship so complex without exploitive sex scenes, that are often unnecessary."  - Butterfly

"Ah...reading this book by Ms. Thomas was like having a feast after being on bread and water. I'm an avid fan of BDSM erotica but it's so seldom that I find a book that a) surprises me and b) impresses me with the quality of writing. This book did both.

First of all, there are none of the usual tropes associated with non-consensual slavery erotica. No violence, no lurid fights and unrealistic cruelty, no blatant disregard for the well-being of the enslaved. This "Master" plans and proceeds with so much thought and intelligence (and gentleness) that you are at once both outraged and yet drawn in by this guy. Not that he is completely kind--he isn't. But there's no thoughtless and spiteful brutality, which placed me in a strange imbalance--hating him and yet feeling an unwilling attraction to him too."  - Annabel

"I love a dark read when I'm in the mood for one, which I was when this book came highly recommended to me. And it is dark. It is erotic. It is BDSM. All things I enjoy in a story." -JennieW

"This is very dark literature, unsettling, and not your standard erotica. It is not about BDSM, but rather a genuine kidnapping. It does have an "incomplete" feel to it, but in this case I felt that it enhanced the storyline. It's definitely uncomfortable to read, and yet I suggest it. The erotic scenes are still often steamy, despite the storyline. It's truly about two broken people in a broken society. This prompted me to read more by Kitty Thomas, which has proven to be entertaining." -Gail


"Comfort Food is dark, exotic and raw! Told in a very realistic tone, Kitty Thomas masterfully drops the reader into Emily Vargas' carnal and enigmatic tale: a kidnapped woman's journey of becoming a BDSM slave to her own captor.

It's not every day that an author can pull a reader across their normal genre and have them so emotionally invested that they can't put the book down, but Kitty Thomas skillfully weaves this tale with a finesse that is truly remarkable, especially given the subject matter." - Tom Wiseman


"Disturbing, twisted, and just plain weird . . . " Amy, GoodReads Reviewer

" . . . an intelligently written, well-researched and very erotic exploration of the extremity of power dynamics . . . It's refreshing to read someone brave enough to tackle erotic themes that are truly taboo and seldom published." - Remittance Girl, Reader and author of "Gaijin" and other works of erotica

"They are a match made in a twisted sort of hell. I don't, as a rule, like erotica, but I'm likely to check out Ms. Thomas' future work just to see how far she can push the envelope." - A Taste For Ebooks, Review Blog

" . . . beautifully written and exquisitely detailed . . . a brilliantly written book and I highly suggest it, if you're up for the challenge." -  Mama Kitty Reviews

" . . . the most twisted form of psychological conditioning, I've ever read . . . will stick in your brain for days after you read it." - Kathleen Gresham, Reader

Faith Jacobson was in the wrong place at the wrong time. After witnessing a mob hit, she's only moments from death when Angelo Raspallo decides to give his brother an unlikely gift.

Leo has avoided involvement with the family business, but it doesn't make him a saint. He's troubled and ashamed by his darker sexual desires, one of which is to own a slave. But when his brother throws Faith at his feet, repainting the scenario to make Leo the hero rescuing her from certain death, his moral fortitude will be tested. If Faith were kinky, it would be easy to live out his fantasy, but she's not. Not even a little bit. Even the mildest spanking sparks terror in her that Leo can't bear.

The gift soon becomes a burden as he fights with himself over how to handle the addition to his home. He could release her, but his brother doesn't do loose ends. The only thing keeping her out of the bottom of the harbor is Leo's mercy. She's like a beautiful piece of art he keeps in a glass case but can never touch. Is possessing her enough?

What Readers are Saying about Mafia Captive:

"If you've never read a Kitty Thomas novel, I think that Mafia Captive would be a great first book to try. Dip your toes into the dark erotica world that is Kitty Thomas" - Letitia

"If your a Kitty Thomas fan or a dark erotica fan at all you will love this book!" -Kellybear

"This would be an excellent read for anyone who is interested in exploring a captive-themed story with a smidge of darkness, but hasn't quite worked up the nerve to "go there." MAFIA CAPTIVE is definitively a "must read" for anyone who enjoys unique stories laced with BDSM elements, powerful characters and the slightly darker side of erotica."  - Bookie Nookie

"Mafia Captive held me captive from page one through to the end. I could not put this book down. Kitty Thomas understands how to engage her audience and keep their attention." - Lina Sacher

"Kitty Thomas is well known for her dark, literary erotica but I think this novel shows a slight departure for her. She's definitely showing her softer, more romantic side and if you've feared reading her books before because the content scares you a little, then I think you should give this one a try."  - Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews


"Kitty just keeps delivering dark erotica. Pain, pleasure, fear, control, mesh together to capture the reader's attention. True suspense of the erotic kind." - JMM

"As for Mafia Captive, I wasn't sure how I was going to like it. I had heard several people rumbling about how it was so different for Kitty. The main character, Faith, wasn't even kinky. Then I just found it amusing that so many people had just boxed Kitty into this kinky corner and rebelled when she wrote something different."... "And THAT is why this book is so great. It's not because Leo is into BDSM, because he is in a big way. It's not because he forces the lifestyle on this young girl, because he doesn't. As I'm sure you know, Kitty Thomas is Zoe Winters. And when Kitty is Zoe, she has a terrific voice and her stories grab you. But when she is Kitty, she grabs you and doesn't let go. She crosses the lines and flips the critics off from the other side. This story was complex. It was very emotional at times, sometimes even a bit funny. There are things that happen that will make you gasp and get angry at this person or that person. Sometimes you might feel like justice happened. And at others, you will fear for what's to come. And that is why I loved Mafia Captive."  - Liz @ Fictional Candy

" Kitty weaves an incredible story and I love the rich cast of characters she creates in Mafia Captive. She is a very gifted storyteller and whether you love or hate Leo, you will love this very dark and very sexy BDSM-themed book. Another great and twisty story from the mind of Kitty Thomas."  - Book Bellas

*If you enjoy Tender Mercies you will LOVE Broken Dolls.

Tender Mercies is a work of dark literary erotica.

“Grace. That word that finally meant something again. Mercy. Favor. Good will.”

Fed up with play kink, Grace Warner moves to an island that embraces erotic slavery to be with a man she met online. Within hours of her arrival, everything is ripped from her, and she quickly learns play is preferable to the realities of actual enslavement.

Asher Collins has spent the past year mourning and blaming himself for the death of his slave, Darcy. When Grace catches his eye at a showing, obviously abused, he becomes obsessed with buying her and finding a way to atone for his own past sins.

What Readers are Saying about Tender Mercies:

"I discovered Kitty Thomas last year with her novel `Comfort Food'. I likened that erotica novel (about extreme Stockholm syndrome) to literary wasabi - sinus clearing and somewhat unsettling, but also incredibly, breathtakingly powerful. So I went into `Tender Mercies' excitedly knowing that Kitty Thomas writes at the extreme-end of the erotica scale. She intrudes upon reader's comfort zones and pulls you (kicking and screaming) into an abrasive and compelling world of fetishism and erotica . . ." -Dee18

"I've first read "Comfort food" by Kitty Thomas and was so exquisitely shocked that I went forward into the BDSM romance genre. So far, I've read around 26 genre books by different authors and can honestly say that Kitty Thomas is one of the best.
Her stories feel real in a psychological kind of way, the events recounted could be really traumatizing but they are set in environments that keep the reader "safe". The heroines suffer and endure beyond reason but somehow they make it through stronger and empowered in their own realizations." -Lenanena


"I recommend it to adults, particularly those interested in aspects of BDSM." -Carocaro

"Tender Mercies is the type of psychological dark erotica, BDSM book that will leave readers who enjoy this type of literary fiction in awe at the brilliance of Kitty Thomas' writing and concepts. I said it after her last book and I'll say it again -- I don't know how she'll top this! :)" -Among the Muses


"I can't believe I have put off reading a Kitty Thomas book for so long! I thought "oh I've read dark erotica this won't be too shocking for me" but I was definitely surprised just how dark this book was. Some scenes definitely caused my stomach to churn and the writing reaches a deeper psychological level than other dark books I've read."  -R Nicole

"Kitty Thomas is such a wonderful writer; her take on dark erotica is wonderful and refreshing. It's harsh, and raw - please use caution if you are not used to dark erotica." -Mel

"So my favorite BDSM theme is where the submissive is abused / mistreated by a former Dom / Master and is healing and learning to trust a new Dom. This one fits the theme perfectly. From the first few pages I was hooked and flew right through the rest of it! I love everything I've read by Thomas and this is no exception." -Mrs thj

"The story is beautiful, and I love the characters. While the book is essentially dark erotica and non-consensual bdsm, Kitty Thomas still manages to create a beautiful romance between master and slave." -lunaselene


"Wow! This book was well written, intelligent dialogue, graphic without being raunchy. I enjoyed the story and it was my second BDSM book. Kitty Thomas has "mad" skills as a writer and I look forward to reading her other books." - Maxine Holmes


"As I mentioned earlier, I am in awe of Kitty Thomas' storytelling abilities. I was deeply caught up in the psychological conditioning in her novel Comfort Food and was titillated by the kinky sexual training in Guilty Pleasures. But the plot twists and multi-layered characters in Tender Mercies have made this book another one of my favorites." -AsianCocoa

"I first became aware of Kitty Thomas's work with Comfort Food, a book I can honestly say I will never forget. While Kitty writes about subject matter that not everyone is comfortable with, she does so in a way that I find to be deft and almost lyrical. Though her current published stories are contemporary, she creates new worlds while drawing from very real elements of BDSM and total power exchange relationships." - Cari Quinn

"I didn't think anything could top Kitty Thomas's Comfort Food, but boy was I wrong. The minute I had Tender Mercies downloaded to my Kindle, I itched to read it. Had it not been for the fact I was deep in addiction with my last read, I could have easily ditched it like I have so many others in favour of what is fast becoming an obsession with Thomas's writing style and her darkly psychological / emotional take on the world of BDSM." -J. Valentino


"I'm always skeptical about erotic novels. I don't want to read it and be disappointed at how quickly the author can push through the build-up of characters, backstory, plot, and emotions just to get to the (seemingly) "good stuff".

With that said, I want to read more of Ms. Thomas's work because it did everything but that. I was hooked within the first few sentences, and continued to read it straight through in one sitting (after a break or two for snacks, that is)."  - Renee


"this book was great in that it didn't hide the fact that BDSM relationships sometimes are dangerous and abusive. I liked the realism" -doo3477


"Kitty Thomas is the queen of darker reads and I love her for it. Tender Mercies didnt disappoint at all. If you like the darker reads you will enjoy Kitty Thomas and her books." -Lisa C


"One very good reason not to trust strange men you meet on the Internet. A dark story about the darker side of BDSM." - Joy Pelloquin

"Kitty Thomas writes darkly erotic novels that are not easily forgotten; Tender Mercies is no exception. Her psychologically disturbing yet erotic stories take the reader on a journey of submission and trust as a way to fulfillment. Comfort Food, Guilty Pleasures, and Tender Mercies all explore the slave/master dynamic, but she manages to make the story different and intriguing each time. Her stories are well-crafted and even though the scenarios are fantastical in a kinky, masochistic sense, I don't have any trouble falling right into her stories and becoming fully vested in the characters and their experiences. I am slightly disturbed by how much I enjoy her books; as if something this dark should not be enjoyed, but I do. Very much." -Loves FAB Romance

 

"...about building trust and showcase that dominance and submission is a game between lovers and not about abuse." - Booklover101


What Authors are Saying about Tender Mercies:

“Kitty Thomas’s hottest book yet . . . emotionally gripping and painfully real . . . impossible to read and remain untouched.” – Annabel Joseph, author of Owning Wednesday

“Tender Mercies is a heart-rending tale that proves Prince Charming doesn’t always come charging in with a white steed . . . Sometimes it’s just a piece of paper and a platinum collar.” – Claudia D. Christian, author of Devil’s Descent II: Impure

“I have never been more invested in a piece of fiction in my life. Kitty Thomas writes with a passion and purpose so pure she makes her readers live and breathe every word.” – Emma Petersen, author of Reign of Pleasure

“An eerie and disturbing story tempered with compassion and love. I couldn’t put it down.” – Fallon Blake, author of Wrapped Around Your Finger

“Intense and dark. Tender and sweet.” -Nattie Jones, author of The Street Urchin

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from “a superb craftsman of suspense” (Entertainment Weekly).

Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What’s one extra day? He takes the detour.

At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is.

The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place?

As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.

Praise for Past Tense

“Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”—The New York Times Book Review

“[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”—The Atlantic

“Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”—Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

“Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”—Booklist (starred review)

“With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”—Library Journal (starred review)

"If your a Kitty Thomas fan or a dark erotica fan at all you will love this book!" -Kellybear

"This would be an excellent read for anyone who is interested in exploring a captive-themed story with a smidge of darkness, but hasn't quite worked up the nerve to "go there." MAFIA CAPTIVE is definitively a "must read" for anyone who enjoys unique stories laced with BDSM elements, powerful characters and the slightly darker side of erotica."  - Bookie Nookie

"Mafia Captive held me captive from page one through to the end. I could not put this book down. Kitty Thomas understands how to engage her audience and keep their attention." - Lina Sacher

"Kitty Thomas is well known for her dark, literary erotica but I think this novel shows a slight departure for her. She's definitely showing her softer, more romantic side and if you've feared reading her books before because the content scares you a little, then I think you should give this one a try."  - Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews


"Kitty just keeps delivering dark erotica. Pain, pleasure, fear, control, mesh together to capture the reader's attention. True suspense of the erotic kind." - JMM

"As for Mafia Captive, I wasn't sure how I was going to like it. I had heard several people rumbling about how it was so different for Kitty. The main character, Faith, wasn't even kinky. Then I just found it amusing that so many people had just boxed Kitty into this kinky corner and rebelled when she wrote something different."... "And THAT is why this book is so great. It's not because Leo is into BDSM, because he is in a big way. It's not because he forces the lifestyle on this young girl, because he doesn't. As I'm sure you know, Kitty Thomas is Zoe Winters. And when Kitty is Zoe, she has a terrific voice and her stories grab you. But when she is Kitty, she grabs you and doesn't let go. She crosses the lines and flips the critics off from the other side. This story was complex. It was very emotional at times, sometimes even a bit funny. There are things that happen that will make you gasp and get angry at this person or that person. Sometimes you might feel like justice happened. And at others, you will fear for what's to come. And that is why I loved Mafia Captive."  - Liz @ Fictional Candy

" Kitty weaves an incredible story and I love the rich cast of characters she creates in Mafia Captive. She is a very gifted storyteller and whether you love or hate Leo, you will love this very dark and very sexy BDSM-themed book. Another great and twisty story from the mind of Kitty Thomas."  - Book Bellas
