5+ Stars



“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.

This is a story of eroticism, horror, and sweet tragedy. It contains graphic scenes, but there’s always light in the darkness.

Series Reading Order:

#1 Tears of Tess ~ my review
#2 Quintessentially Q
#3 Twisted Together


I just don’t think that I have the words to do this book justice. I mean I’m still trying to get my head around everything that happened. This book was just one huge emotional roller coaster.

I just couldn’t put it down and when I did, I soon wanted to be reading it again. Somewhere in this dark twisted world I fell in love with Q and Tess, two equally twisted and damaged character. I left everything that they felt. Pepper paints such a vivid world with her writing that I’m instantly transported to another world.

Quintessentially Q is so dark and twisted, but I loved everything about it. It was the perfect continuation of Q and Tess’s story. After everything that they went through in Tears of Tess, I was hoping for a happier story. But it was not to be. I didn’t want things to get worse, but they did. How is it possible for someone to go through so much and have to do it all over again. My heart wept for Tess.

Q is also much darker in this story and we get to see some of what he is capable of but I know he can still go darker. You can see glimpses of it but it’s never enough.

Quintessentially Q is the perfect sequel and I never wanted to end. Yet at the same time I did because I wanted see Q and Tess have their happy ending. However the author stole that from me too. Loved the epilogue by Pepper. Alas I will have to read the next book to find that happy ending.
