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?
I love Kitty Thomas! The disclaimer alone kills me:
“This is a work of fiction, and the author does not endorse or condone any of this book’s content in a real world setting. This work is intended for an emotionally mature, adult audience. Do not try this at home.” Okay!
I could not put this book down once I started reading it! Even though this story has the usual darkly erotic themes found in Kitty’s other books, Mafia Captive actually has more of a love story than some of her other stories.
Once our Faith almost literally lands in Leo’s lap, he struggles mightily with making her his sexual slave. She is young and very innocent. But Leo discovers that he might not be such a demon after all, as he tries to find a way to keep her alive and safe:
“I’m not going to fuck you for a while. Be a good girl and you have nothing to fear from me. And…you’re allowed to speak.”
I really wanted to dislike Leo, but I became totally enamored of him. He is handsome, sexy and very, very twisted. Kitty weaves an incredible story and I love the rich cast of characters she creates in Mafia Captive. She is a very gifted storyteller and whether you love or hate Leo, you will love this very dark and very sexy BDSM-themed book. Another great and twisty story from the mind of Kitty Thomas.
