I first off would like to thank the amazing Pepper Winters for giving me an ARC copy of this book for me to give an honest review of. I remember when I signed up to help with this Cover reveal and wanted to received this as a copy, so a HUGE THANKYOU!

Q stepped from the ruined jeans, closing the small distance between us. I couldn’t look away from his tattoo. I related to it and in a way, I knew what it represented, but the conclusion kept leaping from grabbing distance.
Rolling hips into mine, wearing only boxer briefs, Q murmured, “Tell me again you don’t want this, esclave.”
How could I lie when my body screamed the truth? My mind was lust filled, hazy, but I had a part to play. Q wanted me to fight so… I fought.
I leaned forward, snapping my teeth, coming within a hair breadth of his nose. “Go to hell.”
His cock jumped in his boxer-shorts, scalding me. Out of nowhere, his palm connected with my cheek, sending spasms of heat.
I gasped, glaring with watering eyes. “You fucking hit a woman when she says no? You’re perverted.”
He pursed his lips. “Tell me something I don’t know.”
Taking him up on his offer, I whispered, “You think you’re a monster. You’re not.”
He grabbed my hair, twisting my neck. Agony flared, and I whimpered in real fear. “Would a kind man do this?”
When I didn’t answer, he twisted further until I screamed. “No! Only a monster does that.”
Not pacified, he reached for the scissors, quickly snipping my knickers and his boxers. They fluttered to the floor in pieces. Q weighed the scissors in his hand, before tracing my naked stomach with the blade. “Would a kind man do this?” With a flick of his wrist, he nicked me. Blood welled in the tiny cut. I shivered, wanting to put my hand over the wound, to hide it, heal it.
Real tears dripped. I was an idiot to think there was something redeemable in this man.
“No, only a monster would do that.” My voice barely audible.
Q sneered. “Now you know the truth.” He bent and licked the blood off my stomach. His tongue lapped; my core clenched, reacting to the tenderness after inflicting pain. His saliva staunched the bleeding and he straightened, licking his lips.
Everything tightened, my mouth parted, desperate to taste his blood. Tasting him was fair. He cut me—a debt must be paid.
Q narrowed his eyes, our souls screamed at each other, unhindered by human words.
I want to hurt you.
I want to own you.
I want to devour you.
I want to make you mine.
I’m already yours.
First off WOW.! Seriously this book has rendered me speechless, if I had to sum this book up it would be : EROTIC & SINFULLY DARK
Here we have Tess Snow, a 20 year old university student. She is currently in a relationship with her boyfriend of 2 years Brax. They are both coming to a position in their life where they could make a change worth their while, Brax decides to take Tess on a romantic getaway for the two of them to Mexico, the land of the music.
Little does Tess know this is where their going. We start to learn that Brax is a simple young adult when it comes to relationships, he’s gentle, kind, loving and dotes on the women he loves. This we find out isn’t what Tess wants.
She wants dominance
She wants pain
She wants it dark & rough
Tess is kidnapped, drugged, tattooed with a bar code, micro chipped and taken to France
We are thrust into a world of slavery and female trafficking in Mexico. Tess is taken against her will, beaten until blue, demoralized and ready to be sold to the highest bidder – Oh so she thinks.
Yes at first I thought what had I gotten myself into with the story of slavery, but what Pepper wrote was truly beyond this world:
*Laced with anger & lust
I was amazed at this book, it left me wanting more, even when I was at work I couldn’t concentrate, all I kept thinking of was Q and his dominating alpha ego!
Seriously WOW, this rendered me speechless 🙂
I’m currently typing this review as we speak and I can’t get the images I have made up out of my head, I know this book isn’t going to be leaving my mind for some time, definitely left a imprint and I will be DEFINITELY spreading the word to read this book.
Here we meet the elusive Mr Q (so he likes to be called). He is rich, handsome and oh so very Dominant, such an alpha male character in this book. He wants obedience, submitance and for Tess to give in to him, to break, but oh no, Tess has other ideas, I think Q has picked the wrong slave to try and break here.
Although Q may seem domineering and an alpha male, he does show some softer characteristics, they start to show more around Tess, could she be his savior?
Tess hates Q but at the same time he gives her the pleasure she’s been seeking, the darkness she’s been looking for within Brax.
Some may say this isn’t for them, fair enough, there is a lot of graphic sexual violence in this as well as just hot sex. So you ALL have been warned.
This book has forever changed me and I LOVED every moment of it.
REVEAL OF THE SECRET AT THE BACK OF THE BOOK!
Now I’m not sure if you’ve read this book yet, but I need to share this with you all even if you haven’t read yet, so I do apologize in advance but this news it too FUCKING (sorry for swearing) juicy for me to keep to myself.
Now I know Tess didn’t want to reveal this until the 6th September, so its great that my review got posted today 12.09.13 🙂
THERE’S GOING TO BE ANOTHER FRICKING BOOK!!!! ***Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk***
Here’s a quick blurb that was revealed at the back:
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.
Driven by his vendetta against his father, Q swore a vow he would never touch a slave. Instead, he spent a lifetime battling dark urges, the need to hurt,
and threw himself into saving broken birds. Dedicating his home and fortune to fix the wrongs of others.
After surviving everything life threw at her, Tess has emerged from the ashed as a women with fire and spirit. Her pas didn’t break her, no matter how much Q tried,
and in a twist of fate, she broke him. Together, they fixed each other.
Tess is his completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, whilst 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 is coming soon!
