Quintessentially Q by Pepper Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You’re my obsession, I’m your possession. You own the deepest part of me.
If you are in the mood for a deliciously dark book thats passionate, sexy, gripping and emotional, this is the one for you!
Tess is back. She has come back to Q, the man she is falling for. The man she can’t see her life without.
Q is so happy, yet very conflicted with Tess’s return. He’s afraid. She makes him feel different than anyone else. One thing he isn’t used to is loss of control. She is the only person thats ever made him lose control. He tries to control the monster in him, but she only seems to bring it out more. I love Q. I get his struggle, and I love him for it, but I loved the moments he brought out the monster even more.
I ache to see your flesh bleed, scream for me, give me what I need, let the rivers run, the monster inside has won...
What Q fails to see is how much he really means to Tess. How much she loves the way they are, craves him sexually, and most importantly, sees the good in him.
“Let yourself feel. Let yourself accept. You’re more human than you want to believe.”
Things are starting to get there with Q and Tess, they are starting to work out how they fit with one another... Just when you start getting into what is happening, the plot takes a huge turn. The beginning was great, I loved the direction it was going. Then. all of a sudden, BAM! I was shocked! There were some things that happened, well, I can’t even talk about them. I was biting my nails, nervous as hell waiting to see how this would turn out. I love twists like that. They make a book for me. Just know your emotions will be ALL OVER THE PLACE. I don’t want to spoil any element of the plot from here on out, it’s really worth reading for yourself. Just be prepared. It’s insane. Q is a mess, Tess is a bigger mess, it’s an uphill battle.
One thing was for sure. Tess had changed. And I feared I’d never get her back.
Healing. Coming to terms with you you are and what you are capable of. Both Tess and Q have to do this. Q is strong, destructive, devoted to Tess and there are so many scenes (that probably should have made me cringe) that just made me fall even more in love with him. Tess had incredible strength and courage. Though some would disagree, I think being in that situation would destroy the normal person. She only did what she had to do to protect herself. I loved Q and Tess together. Their relationship is beautiful. Q will stop at nothing to help Tess, to bring her back. Things he never thought possible happen. And he accepts it. All for her.
Dark. Intense. Sexy. Thrilling. Those are just a few words best used to describe this incredible book! I thought Tears of Tess was a wonderful debut novel, but I have to say, this was much better for me. It was darker than the first. It made me feel, made me think, and kept me on the edge the entire time I was reading. It was amazing to get both Tess and Q’s perspective. I loved the writing, the dark and gritty story line, and the deliciousness and sexiness of Q and Tess together. The internal struggle facing both of the main characters. This is really a great read that captivated me from the start! I highly recommend this series.

“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… fucked up to want something so deliciously dark—wrong on so many levels. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence where two wrongs make a right."
Tess is Q’s completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and that’s just what he’ll do.
He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.
Her debut book Tears of Tess will be followed with Quintessentially Q. You didn’t think Q could stop so soon, did you? Her other two titles, Last Shadow and Broken Chance will be coming soon.Author Bio:
