    5 Stars You’re my obsession I’m your possession You own the deepest part of me If you are in the mood for a deliciously dark book thats passionate sexy gripping and emotional this is the one for you Tess is back She has come back to the man she is falling for The man she can’t see her life without is so happy yet very conflicted with Tess’s return He’s afraid She makes him feel different than anyone else One thing he isn’t used to is loss of control She is the only person thats ever made him lose control He tries to control the monster in him but she only seems to bring it out I love I get his struggle and I love him for it but I loved the moments he brought out the monster even I ache to see your flesh bleed scream for me give me what I need let the rivers run the monster inside has won 
What fails to see is how much he really means to Tess How much she loves the way they are craves him sexually and most importantly sees the good in him 
 “Let yourself feel Let yourself accept You’re human than you want to believe” Things are starting to get there with and Tess they are starting to work out how they fit with one another Just when you start getting into what is happening the plot takes a huge turn The beginning was great I loved the direction it was going Then all of a sudden BAM I was shocked There were some things that happened well I can’t even talk about them I was biting my nails nervous as hell waiting to see how this would turn out I love twists like that They make a book for me Just know your emotions will be ALL OVER THE PLACE I don’t want to spoil any element of the plot from here on out it’s really worth reading for yourself Just be prepared It’s insane is a mess Tess is a bigger mess it’s an uphill battle One thing was for sure Tess had changed And I feared I’d never get her back Healing Coming to terms with you you are and what you are capable of Both Tess and have to do this is strong destructive devoted to Tess and there are so many scenes that probably should have made me cringe that just made me fall even in love with him Tess had incredible strength and courage Though some would disagree I think being in that situation would destroy the normal person She only did what she had to do to protect herself I loved and Tess together Their relationship is beautiful will stop at nothing to help Tess to bring her back Things he never thought possible happen And he accepts it All for her Dark Intense Sexy Thrilling Those are just a few words best used to describe this incredible book I thought Tears of Tess was a wonderful debut novel but I have to say this was much better for me It was darker than the first It made me feel made me think and kept me on the edge the entire time I was reading It was amazing to get both Tess and ’s perspective I loved the writing the dark and gritty story line and the deliciousness and sexiness of and Tess together The internal struggle facing both of the main characters This is really a great read that captivated me from the start I highly recommend this series “You’ll never be free of me I’ll never be free of you It’s fate who decides and fate gave us each other” ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review

    6 SPELLBINDING TITILLATING SENSUAL STARSSigns you’re reading a phenomenal book1 You highlight the shit out of everything Like on every page With rainbow colors2 You bite off your nails without realizing it3 You hang up on your concerned mother who is asking after your welfare 4 You feel the urge to fangirl all over the author and spam her with your afterthoughts5 You go back and re read some of the EPIC uotes and scenesNever in a billion years would I have imagined the things Pepper reveals in As a reader whose tastes run along the dark side I can 200% say that this story will satisfy both fans of ToT and lovers of twisted romances Unanswered uestions in ToT are all answered hereThe story picks up just days after the ending of ToT Tess and are finally reunited but not in their most primal sense Tess yearns for the beastly urges desperately tries to hide; ’s afraid his inner self will destroy her I absolutely loved reading this book with ’s POV This is a monster man who has his shades of grey not fully possessing a black soul less heart but still a ruthless man who does what he wants when he wants He’s not afraid to admit to himself that yes he does have his faults and fears I saw the struggle I saw and felt the constant battle between ‘take her destroy her bleed her’ and ‘leave her save her protect her’ warring within him For the first 25% I followed along with the book read and saw Tess and ’s struggles but not really knowing where the story plot would go But then I got to the most pivotal and climatic twist and my body went into full alert mode My heart began to race I knew then things were gonna change Tess knew things were gonna change and let me tell you my wicked kinky self was right there with welcoming arms just waiting for this moment “His passion his rage chased the rest of my panic away But no matter how touched and honored I was about his vow to protect me he couldn’t stop the residual instinct that something wasn’t right” Tess I’m not going to go in full details about what this twist is what happens as a result but just know Pepper blewmymind You asked for dark? You got it here You wanted a true mindfuck? You got it here too Though my heart cracked to see how far these characters have fallen I couldn’t stop myself from feeling impressed Impressed that their brokenness rose from the page I felt it happen I heard the exact moment when they snapped And most of all impressed that Pepper explicitly and expertly made sure her characters know they hit their rock bottom too And oh how deliciously low they have fallenRemember earlier when I said I wasn’t really sure where the first 25% of the book was going? Well HOLY HELL The last 25% basically smacked me on the face with an epiphany I finally understood Pepper has shown me the stark contrast between then and now Pleasure and pain Captive and captor Love and hatred Tess and She’s shown me just how far they are willing to go to save each other As an author Pepper has really gained my trust and is now an auto buy for me I love the direction her stories have taken and so I can always count on her to gobsmack and shock me every dark reader’s dream I cannot wait to see what she has up her sleeve with Last ShadowPS There’s something super sweet in store for you at the very end of PPS Music always enhances my feels towards a book and so true in this case Here's a few songs I listened to that multiplied the emotional effect by 10Moondust by Jaymes YoungEndorphins by Sub FocusI Wanna Be Yours by Arctic MonkeysFireside by Arctic MonkeysSkyscraper by Demi Lovato ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review Please note that all uotes are from an advanced copy and may be subject to change in the final editionReview of the emotionsI did a lot of and holy flying cow those real horrifying scenes? and the last 25%?

    “I can’t stop you leaving but I won’t stay to see you go” “The moment Tess walked into my life she owned me I would never be free again I never wanted to be free again If Tess thought she'd leave me by killing herself she'd hate me for eternity when I kept her alive”

    5 sparrow stars “Fly away esclave if that is what you want I won’t stop you” ^^Me while reading this bookWell it's clear that Pepper Winters is a fan of ripping hearts out and stomping all over them There were so many goddamn feels packed into this book I may need a Xanax uintessentially takes place four days after Tess has returned to uincy in France The two of them are learning to trust each other and navigating their way through a new relationship for them both I as sick minded as I am found it hilarious that 's biggest fear was literally fucking Tess to death He had nightmares about it And here I am giggling to myself thinking that he's the real life version of Edward Cullen the only resemblance being that sparkle boy was also afraid of fucking his girl to death But this is where the funny part ends because Pepper Winters certainly threw me for a loop with this book “You’re my obsession I’m your possession You own the deepest part of me You crawled into the darkness set my monster free So scream bleed call out to me But never say stop never flee The beginning of the book started off slow with a lot of steam but not a lot of tangible plot This all changed very uickly with one incident so unreal I actually thought I was reading a nightmare dream seuence except for the fact that the character never woke up I cannot say any you just have to read it but I am eating my words when I said in my review of book 1 that it wasn't as dark as I expected Because Pepper Winters brought on the fucking dark in this book “I’d kill for you Tess I have killed for you Don’t undermine me by fearing others Fear me Let me rule you” Once the plot got moving I loved every second of the story Tess for being as strong as she could be and for doing anything in the world for the woman he loved These two are a couple made for each other and while it made me a bit sueamish at times while it broke my heart at times ultimately I loved watching their journey and love for each other unfold After reading this book I needed to go to a happy place I literally wished I didn't have feelings while reading this book So I put the kindle down and went and hugged my dogs That's how dark this book is you will literally need to go and hold a form of happiness after reading it Enjoy

    Oh my GODWhat an incredible ride I think this book just about ripped my heart out I know it’s a well worn reviewer’s cliché to claim that a ‘book owned me’ but never was it truer than when i was reading uintessentially It’s heart breaking Let me tell you if you thought Tears of Tess was darkly compelling and you couldn’t put it down YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHING YET This book consumed me it unleashed a maelstrom of conflicting emotions as we move from super nova hot Ds sex to absolute and appalling horror to abject despair and a crippling sense of loss and I was powerless to do anything but just go with it and let the whole experience wash over me I neglected housework paid work sleep everything just to get back to this book to find out what on earth would happen next It’s full of angst and pain and it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read wasn’t just my master in the bedroom He was the master of my heartFinally he whispered in his deep accented voice “You stole my loneliness I may have given you wings but you've become my gravity I’ll never be free of your force” We begin days after the end of Tears of Tess with a scene between Tess and that was so freakin hot I’m surprised my Kindle didn’t melt I’m talking super nova HOT They may have decided to be together but there’s a lot of conflicting emotions here as is afraid to unleash the sadist within scared at just how far the monster inside will go scared he could actually kill Tess She for her part is in no way a submissive and it is her fight and her incredible strength of will that loves but she allows herself to submit to the pain that wants to inflict but she still needs to maintain some control and this leads to a conflicted but possibly one of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read And just when I thought that this book would mostly centre on the evolving relationship between and Tess and how conflicted and unsure they were about their roles and I think I was lulled into a false sense of security the story EXPLODED into life There was one tiny loose end left untied at the end of Tears of Tess that plays a hugely significant part here and I could never have foreseen the direction that this was going to take and I read in fascinated horror Tears of Tess was dark and and compelling but just wait until you get your hands on uintessentially – nothing could have prepared me for the absolute horror and the abject despair that was unleashed here The story turns on a knife edge and I was immediately glued to my Kindle totally couldn’t put this down It’s just one of those books that consume your every waking thought – you’ve just got to get back to it Nothing else matters I had to know what was going to happen next – it was darkly fascinating and this book had an almost gravitational pull on meTess is strong and a real fighter It was these ualities her spark her refusal to be broken that spoke to on such a soul deep level that he fell hard for her but everyone has their limits and things are about to get a whole heck of a lot worse for Tess than she could have ever imagined The direction that this story took what it might take to actually break the feisty and sassy Tess really shocked me – Pepper Winters has a deliciously evil and uite possibly wicked imagination to think these things up But poor Tess – what she has to endure My heart broke for her “I’m sure to break other parts of you but I don’t want the curse of breaking your heart”“You can’t break something that is freely given” – what a gorgeous delicious and wicked Frenchman and sadist he is I can just hear that sexy French accent as he calls Tess ‘esclave’ and see that Gallic shrug is a fictional creation par excellence and one that is not easily bettered I adored him so much – his incredible strength his integrity the battle royale he does with the sadistic monster he keeps buried within his beautiful tattoo I could easily melt into a submissive puddle at his feet and call him Maître I uite simply adored him and he is such a tortured soul in – he like Tess has so much to endure and ultimately what he gives to make things right is mind blowing and shows just how much he loves her It’s so moving and my heart was in my mouth as I read this scene He almost pays the ultimate price for her and I was an emotional wreck after reading this one Tess kissed me back whispering into my mouth“Because you’re my monster in the dark and I’m yours” So this is a gut wrenching agonising rip your heart right out of your chest deeply emotional and devastating continuation to and Tess’s story and if you enjoyed the first book you are going to LOVE this one A seuel often doesn’t really do justice to the first book but this one blew it out the water – it’s than worthy and completely exceeds all expectations I can’t remember the last time a series like this grabbed hold of my attention and didn’t let go – I’ve been totally spellbound I’ve fallen hard in love with and adored and admired Tess I actually can’t think of a couple who have had to suffer uite so much in romantic fiction and how far over the brink and into the chasm of despair they actually fell What an incredible rollercoaster of a rideThis is dark erotica at it’s finest – absolutely top notch It’s a story of eroticism horror tragedy and ultimately undying and unwavering love and it blew me away Pepper Winters is without doubt now one of my most favourite authors and I can’t see what her deliciously wicked mind comes up with next5 devastating stars For reviews please visit Sinfully Sexy Book
