“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.
Five Entwined Stars
Bippity Bobbity Boo! She's cast a spell.
Why who? Pepper Winters has.. I'm in a haze. I'm an addict. Her words are truly euphoric, metaphoric and potent. I fell hard for this Queen of deep, dark and TWISTED. There is no cure and I don't want one.
In this final installment of The Monsters in the Dark series by Pepper Winters Twisted Together - you will feel the passion, pain and the undying love between Quincy Mercer and Tess Snow.

She's taken on the duty of being his loyal esclave. He is her one and only MaÃ®tre.. Unfortunately, they have hit a bump in the road so to speak. They must face unthinkable challenges that threaten their happiness. Can they overcome these hurdles and dark demons? How much pain can two destined souls endure?
"Did I want to hurt her? Yes. Fuck yes. Did I want to make her cry? Yes. I loved her tears. Did I want to protect her and never lay a finger on her? More than anything."
"Tess deserved to be made love to. Not fucked. Not used by a man that had issues deeper than the fucking ocean."
"Q sacrificed so much to bring me back- it was sacrilege not to keep fighting- to be worthy of his gift. But I had no reserves- no more strength to live these nightmares and stop them from trickling into reality. My nerves were raw. My mind broken. My spirit ruined."
This book consumed me. My heart shattered for Quincy's perseverance to remedy Tess's guilt. I felt his worry, complete desperation and ultimate love. It was truly bittersweet!
Q and Tess have lived and breathed dysfunction, unfairness and survived. Finding their happily ever after is a challenge worth fighting for. May their timeless <3 prevail!
"Q made me into the woman I was but I'd also turned him into the man he'd become. Our past formed us and it would forever be a part of us"
Sigh, Eep, Eek!
They also have a distinctive group of friends. The supporting characters are integral in this series to some degree. Q and his clan is like an entity. They are each other's rock in good and bad times. Franco is ruthless when it comes to protecting Q & Tess. His faithfulness and abilities know no bounds. Suzette has continually demonstrated her loyalty, love and devotion to her boss and his Esclave. Frederick his friend and associate knows and excepts Q, his darkness and all. They are a family in a way that guide, protect, support and care for each other and it came full circle in this edition. They all in some ways have been tainted but have found a way to co-exist in harmony.
She is the quintessential author of dark, delicious and depraved. I find her words to be poetic and intoxicating. Her books are undeniably a piece of art at is finest. Her words are selected carefully and pack a lot of meaning and depth in each sentence. I'm humbled to be her friend and supporter, cheerleader and fan.
I experienced a riot of emotions while reading... I panicked, was elated, was twisted, sad and ecstatic. I even laughed... Yes, Queen of dark has a sense of humor too. It was unexpected but refreshing. See for yourself how incredible Pepper Winters epic tales are! They are an unforgettable experience.
I shook my head. I didn’t understand. All I understood was his voice had the power to make me come. The deep tenor vibrated through my heart, sending tiny orgasms exploding in my veins.I needed to be touched. I needed to be kissed.Kiss him. Let him know.Launching upright, I splashed a wave over the tub. Q jerked back, but wasn’t fast enough. Wrapping my arms around his neck, I dragged him down toward me. His hand slipped on the rim, plunging his arms into the water, landing on either side of my body.His mouth opened to curse, but I swallowed whatever he said. My lips stole his, and the moment I tasted him, I went a little mad.My core squeezed with delirium, demanding to be filled. My eyes rolled back at the sheer bliss of kissing.He tasted like freedom and violence and pain.“Esclave…wait…” Q tried to speak, but he only gave me the opportunity toslink my tongue into his mouth. Joy bounced and fizzed in my heart, demanding more.I moaned, dragging him closer. My hands dug into his hair, tugging with sharp-laced desire. His mouth opened, either in shock or passion—I didn’t hesitate. I thrust my tongue deeper into his mouth, willingly drowning myself in all things Q.
