Kurzbeschreibung

Publisher's Note: Mafia Captive has more of a love theme than many other Kitty titles, though the work is still quite psychologically dark. Readers may also notice a "new adult" flavor as Faith is just out of college and trying to find her place in the world when she is thrust into Leo's life and home. As always, this work is not for everyone.

About Mafia Captive

Faith Jacobson was in the wrong place at the wrong time. After witnessing a mob hit, she's only moments from death when Angelo Raspallo decides to give his brother an unlikely gift.

Leo has avoided involvement with the family business, but it doesn't make him a saint. He's troubled and ashamed by his darker sexual desires, one of which is to own a slave. But when his brother throws Faith at his feet, repainting the scenario to make Leo the hero rescuing her from certain death, his moral fortitude will be tested. If Faith were kinky, it would be easy to live out his fantasy, but she's not. Not even a little bit. Even the mildest spanking sparks terror in her that Leo can't bear.

The gift soon becomes a burden as he fights with himself over how to handle the addition to his home. He could release her, but his brother doesn't do loose ends. The only thing keeping her out of the bottom of the harbor is Leo's mercy. She's like a beautiful piece of art he keeps in a glass case but can never touch. Is possessing her enough?

5.0 von 5 Sternen The psychology of sexual addiction 20. April 2013
Von Western Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ms. Thomas has done it again: created a journey of captivity (reminiscent of "Comfort Food") but with much darker overtones -- true sadism. Stir in a huge helping of a crime family (and everything that that includes!), and you have a novel that is very difficult to put down.

Faith, a damaged and gentle soul, is simply in the wrong place at the wrong time -- she witnesses a murder. Angelo, in his warped way of thinking, decides that he will either shoot her right there, or he will make her a "gift" for his twin brother, Leo -- a man who has long desired to have his own personal sex slave. After all, she has seen Angelo kill a man ... can't let her go crying to the police ... oh, no. Faith begs him to not kill her, but she is also someone who would not be able to live as a submissive ... or is she?

Leo is not overly enthusiastic with Angelo's gift, and yet...and yet there is the temptation to keep her ... to mold her into the perfect slave. She could be a burden, or she could be the answer to his dreams. But could he let her go without repercussions?

Of course, there's much more to the story, and many more characters to fill out the scenes. One expects the Raspallo family to be large, boisterous, and at times scary ... no disappointments there. The family includes the ultimate patriarch, the subordinate leader, the enforcers, and the women ... ah, the women! There's Leo's mother, all too eager for grandbabies; his sister (who really has her own back story with a vicious husband); and assorted cousins. Predictable? Well, a bit ... but their inclusion does make a whale of a tale.

Amidst the pervasive danger, Ms. Thomas has stirred in moments of tenderness and consideration ... the work of taming the skittish captive with soft words (which coat threats) and the surprise of sweet and thoughtful gifts.

"Mafia Captive" isn't just a story of a Mafia family; it isn't just a story of a kidnapping; it isn't just a story of sexual subjugation; it isn't just a story of a conflicted man ... it's all that and so much more. I recommend this book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Had potential 19. Mai 2013
Von Nutmom3_AG9598 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Really don't know where to start with this book. I love erotic novels almost to the point of obsession. Lol. I thought all erotica had some steamy sex scenes and a lot of male dominance. The male dominance was there in the end but no real sex scenes only the illusion of them. I would have been happy with at least one steamy scene. I have read a lot of D/s books so I understand the power exchange principle is not just about sex but also about full submission to a dominant whom you trust to take control of your body soul and mind, and to bring the ultimate pleasure in the end through a submissive's trust which is a beautiful and powerful bond. But This bond between the main characters was rushed and not very fulfilling to read for me because I didn't connect with them or their "journey". I did enjoy the end,but the "journey" was boring. Again no real connection. I wound up scheming through out most of this book. Confused on why it's in the Dark Erotica genre! Totally waste of money!!! If you are looking for steamy sex scenes Do Not Waste your money! I am just so disappointed by this book after reading all the awesome reviews.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dip your toes into the dark erotica world that is Kitty Thomas. 29. April 2013
Von Letitia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Rating: A ... Heat: Sizzling

I'll be honest with you, part of the attraction to dark erotica for me is the psychological aspect. The dichotomy it presents between love and hate, good and evil, force and consent... You never know what's coming and it makes you a little, or a lot, afraid.

Mafia Captive embodies all that in a slightly easier on the brain package. I say only slightly because the parts that are less only made me want it more. The way that Miz Thomas holds back only ratchets up the tension. I never thought I'd be on the edge of my seat waiting for the hero to take what's his. (Vague much? Sorry. I can't think of another way to explain it!)

Faith Jacobson was in the wrong place at he wrong time. After witnessing a mob hit, said mobster gets a glimpse at her fiery red hair and decides she'd make an excellent Christmas present for his brother. A brother who, along with having a thing for redheads, has always wanted a slave.

But what Leo Raspallo gets is a terrified, barely-adult woman. His dream of owning a slave quickly becomes a nightmare. He wants her, he wants the perks of owning Faith, but is afraid his desires will end up breaking her. If Faith had just an inkling of kink in her blood, he could train her... but she doesn't. Having Faith in his house only brings his inner demons to the forefront.

Matters are further complicated when Leo's family visits for the holidays. Leo, who is a devout Catholic, and Faith have two choices: hide her in his dungeon or pretend she's his fiancé. Mama Raspallo would not approve of Faith living with him otherwise. Faith chooses the pretend engagement. But acting as his beloved-fiancé only shows her exactly what she wants from Leo--which is exactly what he's not capable of giving: tenderness and love. And, at the same time, it forces Leo to the brink in his want of Faith. Pushes him to make decisions neither can come back from.

Mafia Captive hit me in the gut, over and over. It hurt to watch two people, who should be fundamentally wrong for each other, try to make it work because they can't deny their chemistry and attraction. It was a different kind of hurt from Comfort Food or Tender Mercies, but no less painful. Miz Thomas did a great job staying true to who Faith was and who Leo was... even if it had me whining, "Faith! Why can't you just enjoy a little spanking every now and then?!" or "Leo! You're so good at pretending to be a doting fiancé, why can't you really be one?!"

I love how Kitty Thomas writes heroes capable of anything and heroines who are tested and pushed past the brink. The uncertainty, the unknown... the danger ever present... is thrilling. And terrifying. She makes you keep turning the pages, only blinking when absolutely necessary.

If you've never read a Kitty Thomas novel, I think that Mafia Captive would be a great first book to try. Dip your toes into the dark erotica world that is Kitty Thomas. If you're still afraid, I'll hold your hand as you read. *wink*

This is going to be kitty's break-out book. I'm very excited to see where this leads her career. "Mafia Captive" was quite different from her other books, although slightly repetitive, I did find it to be an exciting psychological thriller.

4.0 von 5 Sternen She missed an awesome opportunity.... 15. Mai 2013
Von Fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Loved the premise and it almost fully delivered but just missed. Love Kitty's books and they are evocative, but this one missed such an important opportunity to expand that for this book that I couldn't give it a 5.

Angelo, a mob guy, takes Faith captive after she witnesses him killing someone. He sees she fits the "look" his twin brother Leo, a sadist/dominant who'd like to own a slave, and decides to give her as an early Christmas gift rather than "get rid" of her. Although Leo is kind initially to her, she is scared, and rightly so. Leo can't bring himself to force the sex and S/M factors, so decides to put her in a pretty curio box (he can't just let her go - Angelo will find her and "get rid" of her) and let her be. Angelo, of course, disrupts that. He's gay, and with Xmas coming, doesn't want his sexuality being the focus of the very large, Italian family he belongs to and tells Mom Leo is engaged (to Faith). Sets the stage for the rest of the story.

All that said, what I couldn't figure out is why Kitty didn't explore the foster home abuse (seemed likely Faith had been raped and abused) factor she introduced as a lightly touched on backdrop for Faith. Instead, Faith was written off by Leo as non-kinky because she didn't like a spanking she got from him on their first night for disobeying him. She never indicated her fears of him & sex had anything to with anything specific and Leo, who actually seemed to clue in that she was extra-ordinarily scared of him/sex/beatings, and a doctor to boot, never even questioned it, just determined she was non-kinky. I found it odd that the abuse factor was introduced and never given any real weight in the story. It would seem likely to me as a reader that that would have factored into her reluctance and fear.

Regardless, the emotions were the key to the story and Kitty does do that well. She is especially good at the psychology of sexual politics, especially the forced sex type. This wasn't different. And Faith was exposed to things she wanted, like family, and loyalty and people to turn to as a result of her relationship with Leo. It came down to, what did she want more - those things with pleasing Leo in the way he needed to be pleased? Or death and/or being isolated? Those were the questions and they were very well presented and answered.

Really enjoyed reading this book....look forward to anything Kitty writes (even when they push me out of my comfort zone which they often do). This one didn't so much and was more lite romance with how do we fits our respective sexual needs together to get what we both want. I definitely recommend this one - it's not typical Kitty, but it is a romance that pushes you past the norm....
