“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 fifty-eight 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.
Quintessentially Q (MitD Vol 2) -- Pepper Winters
Theme song: "Mercy" by Shawn Mendes.
Book two leaps back into Tess's and Q's world, and now more than ever, the pair will need each other. Mr. Mercer is changing, and that scares the living hell out of him. Afraid that his dark desires, will break her, Q struggles with trust, having never needed to rely on anyone but himself. Until Tess.
There are elements of horror and explicit scenes of torture to several characters. The people who stole Tess are back and they will do *anything* to break her. Whether they succeed or not, you must find out. But one thing's for sure, Q's and his esclave will not emerge the same. There will be pain emotionally, physically, mentally and be prepared to have your heart broken, mended, and toyed with. Quintessentially Q focuses on pathos, and don't take the warning I'm giving here lightly. It's hella intense!
Again, Pepper is an insanely talented writer! Each sentence has weight, is talented crafted, the words woven and twisted and presented beautifully. If you're new to the dark romance genre, I'll recommend this series for an inspiration of sentence composure, literary device/element usage, and general 'how to write' prose.
