QUINTESSENTIALLY Q by Pepper Winters: Blog Tour Review & Giveaway

QUINTESSENTIALLY Q (Monsters in the Dark #2)

by: Pepper Winters

A Dark Erotic Suspense novel

Release Date: December 15, 2013


“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.


Star Rating: 4.5 stars

Heat Rating: DARK

**If you have NOT read TEARS OF TESS, you need to stop reading this and go read it first**

*Warning: It is not a joke when people say this book is dark, it is DARK and disturbingly horrifying at points, if you read Tears of Tess, it gets darker, so be warned!*

Wow.  Holy F*@k! This book messed me up for days after reading it!  I thought I knew where Pepper Winters was going to go with this installment, but I was WRONG!  I am still in shock with how dark, disturbing and heart breaking this book was.  And what is really messed up:  I LOVED it!

After I finished Tears of Tess I was dying to see what would happen  next when Q and Tess became a "couple" but I was not prepared for what actually occurred (no spoilers here I promise).  Pepper Winters, writes stories that take dark subjects to the dark side (and they even hide in corner) but somehow she can take these horrible things and make them beautiful (and that is a talent).  I will admit to being shocked at how much I liked this series, but I ate it up and asked for seconds!

Quintessentially Q takes the reader on an unforgettable journey and it will crush your heart, make you gasp out loud, make you cry (both happy and sad tears) and it will give you hope.  Hope that everything will be as it should (and that you will be able to recover after reading).  Q and Tess's story will show you that love isn't always rainbows and unicorns, but love is worth fighting for and holding on to.  Love comes in many different varieties and just because it is different, doesn't make it wrong.

It has been four days since I read Quintessentially Q and I am still replaying scenes in my head, hearing dialogue, going over plot points again.... that alone is why Pepper Winters is on my "I will buy anything she ever writes" list.  Q and Tess are unforgettable and I crave more!  I need to see what happens when it is just them, so I really hope this Monsters in the Dark series isn't done, I am not ready to say goodbye.  Q, sigh.

If you are a fan of dark themes and aren't afraid to branch out of your comfort zone (in reading) then this is a great series for you to try.  The writing is beautiful, the characters are memorable and the love is profound.  If you have read Tears of Tess, then you MUST read this (and you probably already are).  Either way Quintessentially Q is book you need in your read pile!
