What Readers are Saying About Guilty Pleasures:

"5 stars all the way. I love how kitty writes. no shame. it's everything I didn't know I wanted." - Drew P.

"Such a sexy submissive story. I love Vivian and all the many characters that are thrown into her life. Sequel please, would definitely love more about these characters!"  - Kenzie

"I read "Comfort Food" and wanted to read more from the author ... "Dark eroticia" is so much more exciting than the "50 Shades" type story lines!

With this book and Comfort Food, I questioned if I could handle reading about the things the character's were subjected to but that wasn't an issue, I was captivated.

When about one quarter through the book, I thought it's not going to be as good as "Comfort Food" but that definitely wasn't the case ... It's a hot book and I loved it!"  - Megan

"This book is definitely not for the faint of heart. Very intense BDSM but if you have a depraved mind like me, you'll love it!" -AsianCocoa

"Kitty Thomas is an incredibly talented erotica writer and storyteller, and she really turned up the heat and the kink in her latest release. Guilty Pleasures is a very erotic and twisted tale that sucks the reader in from the first paragraph. Ultimately, it is a look at one woman's sexual awakening and the drastic steps she must take to arrive there. She must question what is the worse existence, a lifetime of dull, passionless sex in her husband's bed or being "forced" to experience orgasmic kinky sex with strangers. I am so very pleased with the book's ending. Perfect! Highly recommended to those who like darker, BDSM erotica" - Book of Secrets

"Guilty Pleasures is a lovely and sweet BDSM story about how a bored, rich and sexually shut-down wife gets her game back. " - Sheri Johnson

"In Guilty Pleasures, Kitty Thomas' second novel, she has once again produced a wickedly arousing tale of nonconsensual submission that turned me on, satisfied me and left me wanting for more." -Zelda Gillian
