Quintessentially Q: Monsters in the Dark, Book 2 Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted...screwed up to want something so deliciously dark - wrong on so many levels. But then slave 58 entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence where two wrongs do 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.

At more than one point, I thought to myself that there was no coming back from what just happened. I mean, how..? For both of them! It was savage.
So let me, first of all, say that Tess has come to be one of the strongest characters that I have enjoyed reading about. Like I said in my review of book one, Tears of Tess, she was a bit of a pain in the butt for me at the beginning and I wasn’t too impressed. However, by the end of Tears of Tess, she had impressed me and my heart was hers.
In this book, she blew me away. The feels. Oh My God, the feels!
Tess has decided that Q is the one for her and nothing is going to get in her way. Not even him. So, off she trots to his humble abode (ha, right!) to prove to him that he needs her as much as she needs him.
Just when it looks like she might be able to make things work between her and Q, life once again says “nope, not yet”, and her world ends, basically.
What she endures is nothing short of horrendous and you really feel like you want to reach through the pages and just hold her.
We finally get to see the world, and Tess, through Q’s eyes and it is as terrifying as it is beautiful and exciting! This man is so close to his primal instincts that he could almost be closer to animal than man.
He is scared to death of letting Tess in somewhere that no one else has dared to go. He feels that there is no way he can give her what she needs outside of the bedroom...or kitchen...or dungeon...or helicopter but he just can’t stop himself from having her.
Things are just getting interesting for them and then...life just stops. Tess is gone. Taken. And it messes this man up to a royal degree. We see the monster that he tries so hard to keep hidden come out to play. And play it does.
FINAL THOUGHTS on QUINTESSENTIALLY Q by Pepper Winters - I did not want this book to end. And I needed this book to end, ya feel me?
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.
***Strip me bare, pull my hair, I don't care, just take me there. I need that high, I need that pain, it's the only thing that keeps me sane.***
