About this ebook

"I would've paid 10x what I paid for this ebook... Grabs hold of you from the first paragraph and never lets go." - Pam Godwin, NYT Bestselling Author

"Sexy and twisted and masterfully written." - Julia Sykes, USA Today Bestselling Author


The first day of my captivity was like being born... or dying. They're both kind of the same thing with the long tunnel and the bright light at the end. Maybe it wasn't like either, actually. Maybe I'm remembering it wrong because for me that day all there was was darkness.


Today I found something beautiful and decided to break it. I wanted to see it shatter in my hand and crumble at my feet. Her name is Emily Vargas.She's bright and educated and stunning. Articulate. She'll want someone to talk to her.

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

Originally published in 2010 before dark romance was even a subgenre, Comfort Food very well may be the original dark romance!

Comfort Food is one of my all-time favorite books. It follows the theme of Kitty 's other books that I have read, ownership of a human. A while back I reread it and decided to share about it's greatness. First off, I have always loved psychology, my major. Comfort Food is chalked full of behaviorism. The writing style totally draws you in. Emily speaks directly to you, telling you about everything. You are reading a personal, sexy, dark science experiment. The story begins with Emily waking up after having been abducted and imprisoned. Master, we never learn his name, is one of my top book boyfriends ever. He is always so in control and put together. Nothing rattles him or causes him to deviate from his plans. He's gorgeous, intelligent, rich, sexy, patient, determined, focused and leaning toward psychotic. Steadfast in getting his desires met, he wants to own her and everything about her by her choice. He never forces her to do anything, but lays the options in such a way that she wants to please him. Comfort Food takes us threw the process step by step of modifying Emily's beliefs, desires and thoughts about her life and the world. I cannot explain how interesting this truly is. You must read it for yourself.

Far more stunning and entertaining than others I have found in the genre. The main character is dark, his actions uncomfortable yet still sexy in his utter possession and destruction of our heroine. Due to the disclaimer I felt like I was winding myself up for a letdown, so often in recent erotic reads, I feel this topic filtered, almost unexplored. Light bondage and spanking seems to be all that is required. This was an amazing read. DO NOT really do this, but omg so hot to fantasize about.

To be honest I only found the last few chapters interesting. The story may have been more compelling if it unfolded in flashbacks when Emily was freed. I felt no connection with her until she was let go.
