Blog Tour: The Monster Keeps Me Safe By Kitty Thomas [$200 Grand Giveaway]

I am a HUGE fan of Kitty Thomas. I fell in love with her books ever since I picked up Comfort Food, which is honestly one of the most phenomenal books I have read on sexual slavery and Stockholm Syndrome. Normally, I stray far away from dark erotica or non-consensual romance, because I think it takes a lot of skill to handle such subjects without being insensitive to victims of abuse.

Blog Tour: The Monster Keeps Me Safe By Kitty Thomas [$200 Grand Giveaway]

But, you see, this is where Kitty Thomas shines. Most of her books are dark and gritty and quite disturbing, and although they all belong in the romance genre, she never actually romanticizes the abuse because she never excuses the actions of the abusers in her stories.

And that’s why I cannot wait to get my hands on The Monster Keeps Me Safe. It was previously published under the name Tabula Rasa, but the content remains the same; only the cover art and title has been changed. Thank you Xpresso Book Tours for having me as a tour host for this book.
