I fancy myself a big fan of Kitty Thomas and because of how much I usually enjoy her work, I was expecting a whole lot from Mafia Captive. Sadly, it just didn't pull through for me. I wasn't engaged in the story and couldn't form any feelings for the characters. I found the plot dragged too much for my taste and if I'm being honest the sex wasn't as dangerously kinky and strangely sexy as it usually is. I know this was said to be a bit more of a love story than Kitty's other books and maybe that's why it didn't click as well as for me--because I'm not used to this kind of plotline from her. Whatever the reason may be, I will definitely continue to consider myself a fan and will be reading her future work as well.
