52 Book Challenge: Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas

{Proceed with caution, mild spoilers all up in this bitch}

I have mentioned already most of the “goals” I have taken on this year for the 52 Book Challenge. I want to work my way through series I have been putting off, and I want to read more scifi and short stories. There’s a fourth category, too: I am on the hunt for books that push me out of my comfort zone. Whether it is the genre, the author, the format or the subject matter, I want to broaden my horizons. It happened unintentionally last year and I found some amazing things, so I was hoping for a repeat this year.

Well, book 1 in the “out of my comfort zone” challenge was surprisingly… uh, comfortable to read. I was expecting this to be really, really difficult. “So disturbing I can’t finish it” difficult. Why would I even pick a book like that? Okay, looking back I have no idea what possessed me to give this one a shot. But it was so, so tame. Basically, a girl gets kidnapped by a guy who doesn’t talk and she gets wicked Stockholm syndrome and is turned into a minion of his pleasure. But, well, that isn’t how it goes down. At all.

First off, our narrator is never that unhappy about her circumstances. It is made very explicit at the beginning that non-con romance is her “thing.” She’s attracted to the man who kidnaps her right when she meets him. She begs him to touch her on their first encounter, while she is tied to a chair. I don’t even. I was not expecting porn, guys. This is straight-up erotica. And not, you know, well done erotica with great characters and a substantial plot (Tiffany Reisz, I’m looking at you!), it’s just ugh a mess.

There are plotholes like woah in Comfort Food. The kidnapper has fastidiously studied our plucky heroine’s life, but missed the part where she had a deaf sister? Plucky heroine describes herself as a “social butterfly” at the beginning of the book but later admits she hates being around people and making her own decisions and would rather be alone in kidnap-r-us with the captor? You could see everything being pushed around to suit the author’s goal, which was sex. Nothing made sense. Nothing was consistent.

On the plus side, Comfort Food sure has a nice book cover! I mean, it’s just so pretty. I think that is why I picked this book. “Ahh, wow, look at this cover! How bad could it be!” You think I would have learned my lesson after last year and Charlotte Featherstone’s Addicted.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

    I want to show my thanks to you just for rescuing me from such a predicament. Because of looking throughout the world wide web and coming across thoughts that were not helpful, I thought my entire life was well over. Living without the approaches to the issues you’ve solved as a result of your main guide is a crucial case, as well as the kind which may have adversely damaged my career if I had not noticed your web page. Your actual skills and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was crucial. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a step like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for the impressive and effective help. I will not be reluctant to recommend your web sites to any individual who should receive guidelines on this problem.
