BLOG TOUR: Quintessentially Q – Pepper Winters + Review, giveaway & teasers!

Released: December 13th, 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.
"You'll have to face your past and move on if you want to have any chance of happiness."

My heart has been ripped out of my chest, shredded to pieces, hammered to bits and pummeled to oblivion. This book was terrifyingly dark but exhilarating at the same time. A love story about two beautifully broken people as they journey deeper into their relationship and overcome even more obstacles that threaten to break them apart. Breathtaking, heart-wrenching, and crazy fantastic.

Dear God. My feelings?

Not. A. Single. Fucking. Word.

The novel started out so peacefully. Tess was back with Q and they lived in this happy little bubble. Well, not so happy. But they were together.

Q was everything to Tess. Her master. Her lover. Her life. She was his esclave.
Q wasn't just my master in the bedroom. He was the master of my heart.
And the same goes for Q. He couldn't live without Tess. She was it for him.
I may be a controlling bastard, but the moment Tess stalked into my life I lost my balls to her.
But damn. In this novel, we see sides to Q we didn't see in Tears of Tess. Whereas there he seemed so masculine and in control, we see the vulnerability and fragility of his character here. He was terrified. Scared shitless that Tess would leave him and find someone better. The love he possessed was immensely profound and overpowering. It conquered him completely.
I dragged Tess into my lap, wrapping my arms tight around her. In my embrace, I held the moon and stars and planets. I held my future fucking happiness, and I'd kill myself if I ever fucked it up.
When we approached the 'hook' point where the story picks up, I couldn't put it down. I kept going and going and going. It took me like 3 hours to finish this book, which was pretty fast for me considering its length.

My heart broke as we venture through both's perspectives. Tess, as she is broken and tortured both mentally and physically, seeking for salvation. Q, in his desperation to seek his lifeline and the guilt that consumes him.

The last part absolutely tore me apart. I cried and wept and sobbed into my pillow. I will not spoil it. It was so heart-breaking and it was like a fucking punch to the gut.

But I have one thing to say to Pepper Winters, as I quote from QQ:
"Je vous remercie du fond de mon cœur."
Translation: Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for creating such a dangerously dark, yet incredibly beautiful love story. Thank you for giving us amazing characters to love and cherish.

I look forward to Twisted Together.

Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the hero, the better, and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters. Oh, and sex… her books have sex.
She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends.
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.
