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.
DISCLAIMER:
This is not a story about consensual BDSM. This is a story about "actual" slavery. If reading an erotic story without safewords makes you uncomfortable, this is not the book for you. This is a work of fiction, and the author does not endorse or condone any behavior done to another human being without their consent.
 I generally don't like S&M books but this one pulled me in from start to finish. It was one of those kind of books you can't put down and are morbidly fascinated with! Yes I said it, I was extremely pulled into their strange and twisted world. I really don't even know how to describe this book. It wasn't in your face S&M and I never really felt extremely disgusted. It definitely gave my brain some things to think over, because she did always had a choice, even if the choices were something she didn't necessarily like, but a choice none the less. Then when I got to the end it really took me by surprise and just added more to my morbid fascination. So I would say this isn't a book for just anyone. You would definitely have to have an open mind.
