It's uncertain which might crush her first: her debt or the buildings squeezed in so tight that they surround her like ominous sentinels. She can't breathe in the city. Her success is a lie, and her debt is coming to collect her-unless someone else gets there first.

When a stranger offers her a job at a ranch, it feels like salvation, but it could also mean her death if his motives aren't pure. Which door ...

Overview

Veronica Cason lives in a small apartment with no clear view of the sky.

When a stranger offers her a job at a ranch, it feels like salvation, but it could also mean her death if his motives aren't pure. Which door has the tiger behind it? The claustrophobia of the city or ranch life under an open sky?

    Excellent Dark Erotica Story

    This is a pretty quick read, but is really dark, as are all Kitty Thomas's books. I knew a little about this book because she blogged about it a couple of times. I don't consider this review to have spoilers because Kitty has blogged and tweeted about this issue a lot, but if you want to go into this story without knowing anything, then stop reading now.


    **possible spoiler, but author blogged about this part of the book**


    In this book, Luke kidnaps Ronnie while she is extremely down on her luck. He takes her back to his ranch and turns her into his homemaker and eventually into his sex slave for him and his ranch hands. It goes even further to give her hormones so that she start lactating. He and his farmhands proceed to milk her. It is a little weird to me, but people drink human milk all the time. I know people that have tried drinking "straight from the tap" after their wives give birth. I've never heard of taking hormones for this purpose, but to each his own.

    The part that kind of got to me, was the Luke was trying to use Ronnie to replace his ex-wife. He even calls Ronnie by his ex-wife's name. That creeped me out the most. Very serial killer. Ronnie already looks like her. He then makes her wear the same clothes, no shoes, etc.


    I really enjoyed this book, but it is not for everyone. It is extremely dark and includes some non-consensual kidnapping, and what amounts to rape. If you've read any of this author before and liked it, you will like this too. If you haven't read this author, just know that the stuff is really dark and will play with your mind.

    I really enjoyed this book. This was my second book by this author and will be reading others. The subject matter was unusual but I didn't find it objectionable. The story did end abruptly. I wish it had ended with more of a resolution.

    Had to read it straight through!

    Kitty Thomas had done it again. She's ensnared me in her web of dark and disquieting words. The dark subject matter of BIG SKY rivals that of COMFORT FOOD (a book that still haunts my thoughts years after reading). Let's just say that the antagonist/hero in BIG SKY makes Master from COMFORT FOOD seem like a well-adjusted individual. ;-) And, yes, in Kitty's world, the hero and antagonist are usually the same person. Ms. Thomas has this talent for making me see a little of myself in all of her heroines. How does she do that? Veronica Cason begins the book with a hardcore feminist attitude, very angry with men in general and ticked off that Cowboy Luke, her soon to be captor, would dare hold the door open for her. Yeah, there have been times in the past I've felt that way. Unfortunately for Veronica, she's not a successful, financially independent feminist. She's down on her luck, buried in debt, out of work, and days away from living on the streets of New York City. But Luke, a ranch owner in Vermont, is about to change all that. He offers her a job working on his ranch, and when she refuses, he takes her choice in the matter away (and that's all of the plot I'm telling!). Hands down, the dark and twisted story in BIG SKY gets 5-stars. Where I could see COMFORT FOOD as a very unconventional love story, BIG SKY was not, at least the love story was not between Veronica and Luke (read it and see why!). The ending was haunting, and that's the only way I can think to describe it. I took off a little just because the big kink that was explored at the end of the book just isn't my cuppa. Even though it didn't ring my bell, I thought it was well-done and rather eye-opening. Now, the rest of the book? Sinfully hot. Yeah, there's good reason Kitty Thomas is one of my top two most read authors. Overall, I give BIG SKY 4½-stars! Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.

    I was expecting an ending that would make sense of everything that happened in this book. BE FOREWARNED the ending is more than just a little lackluster! What a let down. Definitely not worth the trouble or the money.

    Definitely some crazy weird stuff going on in this book. I think my mouth was hanging open when I finished reading it. More of an ending would have been nice, but not a big deal for me. When I'm in the mood for dark erotica, I want to say "What the f**k did I just read?" when I'm finished. That's exactly what I said after this. Well written, recommend if you enjoy this genre.
