Tess started off in Tears of Tess as a strong character, kidnapped and trafficked into the sex trade she was given to Q as part of a business deal. Together they embraced their inner darkness and were a formidable couple. This part see's their level of perfect ripped apart as Tess is recaptured by the evil traffickers that took her from Mexico the first time. Her characters is dealt blow after blow of torment, assassinating her strong character, breaking her mind. Peppers writing is so descriptive and emotive that you are drawn into the story, feeling like a voyeur to Tess's torture. There is no author like Pepper that can write dark to this degree.
Told from a dual POV; Peppers books as always are slow paced. She develops the story and fine detail with finesse, it never feels rushed and a story of this magnitude and gravity shouldn't be either. Q is the anti hero, I am instantly drawn Peppers male MCs, she writes strong, dominant alpha males that you immediately fall in love with, care deeply for. She makes you deeply invested in her characters and their tribulations.
A truly addictive series and for all lovers of dark, if you haven't read this. you need too. Not much has come close.
Just how can a person find themselves absolutely riveted to reading on with Tess and Q's story? Well when the pensmanship is as good as Pepper's then it's easy to sink into this very visual and extremely potent story and be quite honestly mesmerised by what unfolds.
So you would think that Tess falling into captivity again would be kinda boring and a bit 'been there done that'. Well think again. What Pepper comes up with this time, is well, WOW, honestly how Pepper writes it this time is very powerful. And if you liked Tears For Tess then I pretty much guarantee that QQ will blow your socks off!
I am really looking forward to Twisted Together and watch and read on at how they can both settle into their demons and the monster and watch as they truly learn what their love is true and meant to be.
Pepper has an extraordinary talent at dark romance and whilst some content leaves you screaming at either the horrendous situation with Tess or the downright shock of a man with the needs that Q has, I don't think that anyone that truly enjoys dark romance can deny this is high end writing.
For me, this book was even darker and more disturbing than Tears of Tess but it is complimented by the way Q tries to return Tess from the horrors of her mind following her latest trauma.
Still trying to find happiness in the shadow of each other's demons, Tess and Q settle into their new life together for once with light peeping through the darkness. It's not long though before their happiness is thwarted once again and Tess is thrust back into the nightmare she had not long ago escaped from.
Tess faces even worse horrors in captivity the second time but as her captors try to break her once and for all her only hope is Q but even she has doubts that he will come to rescue her this time.
This is not an easy or comfortable read but one which I suspect is very close to real life for a very unfortunate few.

Pepper Winters must have crawled through a personal hell whilst researching for this book. I know that I was dragged through some form of purgatory reading it finally deciding I will lock my beautiful daughter in an ivory tower if she ever decides to holiday in the more obvious hot spots. BTW Brax is an a**e who does not deserve a good life.
That said this book was riveting and extraordinarily well written. I have bought the third book but I can't start reading it immediately. Q has pulled me inside out and I need to recover.
This is not a book for the faint of heart. It could easily be tagged as a dark thriller but for those of us with a stronger constitution it is a must read.
