Angie – ☆☆☆
Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas was one of the first dark books I read and loved it. I was SO excited to read this book. However, I think I will be one of the few who didn’t love it. I was honestly bored when reading it. Yeah, there were dark elements to it, but I just couldn’t get into it, I knew early on how it was going to end. I tried to like it, I really did, but it just didn’t grab me and draw me in. It was just an ok read for me.
Characters: The characters were well written but I couldn’t connect with any of them.
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Not sure
Genre: Dark, Erotica
Would I read more by this author: Yes

I absolutely LOVED this book!!
I could empathize with Vivian and I really enjoyed the storyline.
Don't get me wrong, this is a dark dub-con story, but I found myself liking the "bad guys" as well as the heroine.
I found myself despairing at moments, and elated with the ending!
I highly recommend this as the perfect introduction to Kitty Thomas's dark, dark writing.

Guilty Pleasures is my first Kitty Thomas read and has been on my “To Be Read” list for some time. So, I was excited when I got the opportunity to read and review it and I’m pleased I did. Who knew Vivian could go from a frigid ice queen to the naughty little sub Anton, Gabe and Lindsay trained her to be. I finished it in one sitting. I just couldn’t put it down. The twist at the end was expected, but it didn’t take away from the story. It was more like “AH HA! I knew it!” I loved Guilty Pleasures and definitely see myself visiting those HOT trainers again and again.

I knew the author’s style but had no idea going in how much this book was going to turn on me. Understandably couples who have been together years go through periods of sexual funk like these two but I have never heard of an ending like that one. Very unique twist, and maybe a bit much on the border of nonconsensual. Overall entertainment was three stars.
Coming December 23rd, the much anticipated sequel to Guilty Pleasures...

Kitty Thomas writes dark literary erotica that explores dominance and submission. Not really classed as romance, though some readers see it that way. It's a case of your mileage may vary. Romance genre conventions and rules are not usually followed but some books could easily be classed as "erotic romance" such as Mafia Captive or Tender Mercies.
Her latest work, Broken Dolls, is now available for pre-order. Official Release Date: December 23, 2014
This work is fiction and meant for an adult audience. The author does not endorse or condone any of the behavior carried out by characters in her stories
