“After battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything—my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life. And for a while, I thought it broke me, that I’d never be the same. But slowly the beast is growing bolder, and it’s finally time to show Tess how beautiful the dark can be.”
Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he’s still a monster inside.
After surviving the darkness, a new dawn has begun. Twisted Together wades through black to grey, chasing the light of true love to banish the shadows forever.
Pain is a requirement, connection a necessity. But ultimately Q and Tess must face their demons, before they can embrace their future.
Pepper has a way of taking a story and turning it into an actual life experience, at least for me. When I first read Tears of Tess, I thought I had experienced everything I could in terms of darkness. I mean, imagine being kidnapped on a vacation with your boyfriend and being sold into the sex slave market! How insane would that be? Take in everything Tess goes through in the first book and you see just how horrible things can get.
Then I read Quintessentially Q and Pepper took me to another level of dark. Q is so incredibly intense and painfully fractured. I say fractured because I know he can heal and he is not fully broken. I wanted to know who Q really was, and QQ gave me that opportunity.
Twisted Together finishes the puzzle. What happens next? What new challenges, and rest assured, there are new challenges, wait around the corner? This book was a deep psychology of what happens when two souls who have only seen dark come together and try to bring light into one another's worlds. In some ways I felt this was a celebration of that dark love.
The first half of the book brings you back into the world of Tess and Q. And I have read some reviews that state they thought the first half sort of dragged. I agree it was a bit slow, but you needed that to balance out the insanity of the second half. It was a twist I didn't see coming. But one that was necessary.
Tess dealing with her nightmares, Q dealing with his own demons. Twisted Together was just that. Two souls finding a way to be for one another. Finding a way to make it to the other side together and doing so while trying to heal. This is how I wanted the story to end. I am sad to see it go, but I can always go back to the world of Tess and Q.
Pepper thank you. Thank you for taking me on this journey. I needed Tess and Q more than I realized.
I give this 5 lipsticks!
