Twisted Together by Pepper Winters

“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.

Twisted Together is the perfect ending to one of the most untraditional love stories I have ever read. Tears of Tess was her story, Quintessentially Q was his, and Twisted Together is theirs as they move forward in a life together. Despite the trials and tribulations they have faced and overcome, Tess and Q find that their happily ever after is threatened at every turn by factors within their relationship and the outside world. But something worth having is worth fighting for, and they both fight for their relationship relentlessly in this book.

Twisted Together is not a stand-alone book and anyone attempting to read it as such will be woefully lost and is cheating themselves from the beauty of the relationship between a sadist and his masochist. As this is the third book in the Monsters in the Dark series, you are already well-acquainted with the main characters and their lives. You know the literal tortures both Tess and Q have experienced as well as the inner demons that fight daily. While the sex is just as hot as in the prior books, it is also healing and loving as their relationship continues to strengthen in their shared needs and tragedies.

Ms. Winters possesses an astounding talent that leaves me wanting more – not because the story is incomplete, but because Tess and Q’s story is beautiful in its darkness and I’m not ready for it to be over. Her writing elicited the full gamut of emotional reactions as I read Twisted Together: I cried, I feared, I squirmed, I smiled, and I even laughed (when Q made sure that Lynx’s cuts never moved beyond his legs). There is so much that goes on in the book, that commenting on particular scenes risks revealing spoilers for this and the previous books. So I will leave you with this, if you enjoyed the journey through Tears of Tess and Quintessentially Q, then you will not be disappointed with Twisted Together.

“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect. 
Then it all changed. 
I was sold.” 

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility. 

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world. 

But lusty paradise is shattered. 

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror. 

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold. 

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?
Monsters in the Dark, #2

“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.
