SYNOPSIS

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 explores what happens when all expectations of pleasure and pain are turned upside down, as whips become comfort and chicken soup becomes punishment.

MY REVIEW

COMFORT FOOD by Kitty Thomas

This was such an odd book, lol. 

It wasn’t the usual kidnap/Stokholm Syndrom story.

Yes, it had some BDSM and sex scenes in it, and yes she was held against her will but somehow, it wasn’t all that dark or erotic.

I can’t make up my mind if it was more thought-provoking or just a little slow and uneventful.

EMILY

Well, from the very begining I had a very clear picture of this woman and how she sounded. 

I knew she was intelligent, well educated and logical. Your average 30-something woman.

She wakes up tied to a chair and blindfolded. Her captor enters and unties her but doesn’t speak, At all.

That in its self would terrify me. My mind would play absolute havoc with me more than anything he could think up to do to me. 

Over the next few weeks, she goes through the biggest mind fuck ever.

Not only does he not speak to her but he makes it so that everything he does do to her, is something she askes for as she comes undone and breaks with a kind of sensory deprivation.

It is amazing what you can grow to get used to or adapt to. 

I had started to crave the gentle caresses that accompanied meals. I knew it was sick, twisted, but I needed to connect, to feel some sort of communication with him.

MASTER

There is not an awful lot I can actually say about him as we see almost nothing from his point of view. He’s an extremely attractive, physically fit man with a lot of wealth.

And for reasons you don’t find out until near the end, he has taken this poor woman to break her down and condition her.

He is a patient, intelligent and determined man, y’all.

It drove me batshit crazy trying to figure out what he wanted, lol. I wouldn’t last 24 hours in the situation Emily was in.

People sociopathic enough to break and condition someone properly don’t have the level of self-control required to do it. Most with the control aren’t big enough sociopaths. This was why I feared this man so much, not because I was his prisoner, but because I saw in him the blending of these qualities, which made the possibilities of what could happen endless.

SEX SCENES

The sex scenes weren’t the main focus of this story. 

Yes, there were a few but it was about how he managed to get her into that state of mind, where she was willing to submit to him in such a way and enjoy the pain he wanted to inflict on her when not long ago she had been terrified of the thought.  

It was all about the mind fuck.

FINAL THOUGHTS on COMFORT FOOD by Kitty Thomas

This is a really interesting read for those of us that are fascinated by human psychology and what it takes to break and then build up a person.

Yes, it’s a very thought-provoking book.

Still not sure how I feel about it now that it’s over though.
