Comfort Food

Rated 4.79/5 based on 19 reviews
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. More

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.

I found this book extremely fascinating. I've always been a sucker for BDSM stories that focus on the growing bond between the Dom/me and submissive, and this is certainly is one of those.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in perusing a greater interest in BDSM, especially those who are interested in the Dom/me Sub relationship. Though it would be nice if there could one day be a story about a female Dom.

This story is beautifully done, the characters are very engrossing, and the psychology behind it was really very interesting. An amazing job!

I actually read this book right after purchase but I always struggle with reviewing 5 star books - there isn't much to complain about!
I read a lot and there are only very few books that stand out, where I will remember title, author and plot for years.
The biggest compliment I can make is that this is one of those books.
I really would like to revisit Master and Emily and see if their relationship has developed and they have a "happy" ever after - but maybe that would lessen the impact of this story?

4.25 stars
This was very well written and it really messed with my mind (in a good way) because I found myself wanting Emily and Master to be together which is seriously crazy. It was so painful reading about Emily trying to find her place in "the world outside" and I could feel her pain and when she gave the edited journal to the psychiatrist that was fascinating. Excellent book with really compelling writing and great characters.

I am not sure what to say. It was chilling to see how methodically Master molded Emily, every single step. It was fascinating. But what really impressed me most was the sense that it was all psychological. Emily knew it. Master knew it. From beginning to end, I sensed the psychology behind everything, which to me brought this short book to another level. I really enjoyed it because of that, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

I started out with the free preview; once that was read I immediately purchased the rest of the book. I was very impressed with the character
development of Emily; her insight into her own plight is fascinating to be a part of. As one who is familiar with BDSM, Ms. Thomas accurately captured the eroticism in submission and masochism. I hope to read more by this author.

This is the first book I've read of this type. I've read a few fanfiction stories that had the bare basics of BDSM, but this is another thing entirely.
The writing style is engrossing and hypnotic, I started reading the preview on the recommendation of a friend and bought and finished it straight away. If it was on paper I would say it was un-put-down-able.
I kept expecting myself to hate him. Everything I know in my life, the way I live it, says that I should be outraged or disgusted that he could treat someone this way, but it never happened. I had more disgust for her family than for Master, in a way that scares me because I don't know what that says about me.
Despite the fact that this is not my normal genre - I would recommend this book to anyone, everyone. Some will have different reactions than others, some may even hate it, but there is no denying it's a well spun tale and Kitty is a fantastic writer. Do yourself a favor and read it.

Fantastically written. Every page captivated me. While this is not a genre or subject matter I tend to be drawn to, this book called to me and I am glad I listened.

"Comfort Food" is a lovely, elegant peek into the darker side of human nature. Through Emily's eyes, Kitty Thomas leads us on an emotional first-hand account of what it's like to be forced into what amounts to sexual slavery. But it's not only that – it's also the journey of a woman who knows she's being mentally trained and conditioned to accept her new position even as everything in her tells her to fight against it. She's fully aware of what's happening, but powerless to stop it, and I think most readers will be equally disturbed and fascinated by her plight.

Master is a man who merely wants to own...something. Yet unlike so many of these stories, he doesn't actively seek to cause pain, but rather adheres to his own strict rules of conduct and self-control even while breaking Emily, making him one of the most enigmatic and benevolent captors I've ever read.

It's a haunting work, and yet beautiful in the bond that grows between the Master and his prey. I think anyone who enjoys this genre will appreciate the fine craftsmanship that went into these characters and the situation itself, and I'll be looking forward to more of the same from Thomas in the future.
