Quintessentially Q (Monsters in the Dark #2) by Pepper Winters

 Quintessentially Q (Monsters in the Dark #2)  - Pepper Winters

“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."

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.



5 Quincy Stars!!


This is a story of eroticism, horror and sweet tragedy, and so much more that wasn't mentioned!!





Comparing this to book 1 (Tears of Tess) I found it so much darker/grittier, times I found myself shuddering with what Tess yet again had to endure at the hands of a sadistic bastard..


Q always knew he was different, he never understood or knew where his black tendencies arose from, that urge to draw blood, leave a mark, scars, to posses her..



I thought this book was going to be all about Q, but then the unthinkable happens to Tess and it's like a replay of book 1 with more darkness thrown in..




This is where it started getting good for me, the story line started picking up and I was absorbed in the horrors of what Tess was enduring..I loved Q's drive to find Tess, to hunt the ends of the earth for her, to get blood on his hands if that's what it took..














"I want you to take me, You're going to do whatever you want to me. You're going to take everything I have to offer by any means necessary."




"I've fucked you, I've hit you, I've loved you in my own way, but it's not enough to fix you."

Surviving Raine (Surviving Raine #1) by Shay Savage

Surviving Raine  - Shay Savage

As the captain of a schooner catering to the elite on the Caribbean Seas, Sebastian Stark does his best to avoid any human encounters. Interacting with people isn’t his thing, and he prefers the company of a bottle of vodka, a shot glass, and maybe a whore. There’s no doubt he’s hiding from a checkered past, but he does well keeping everything to himself…

…until the night his schooner capsizes, and he’s stuck on a life raft with one of the passengers.

Raine’s young, she’s cute, and Bastian would probably be into her if he wasn’t suffering from alcohol withdrawal. As the days pass, DTs, starvation, and dehydration become the norm. Even the most closed person starts to open up when he thinks he’s going to die, but when she realizes their traumatic pasts are connected, it’s no longer the elements that have Bastian concerned.

He has no idea how he’s going to Survive Raine

VIP by M. Robinson

VIP - M.Robinson

The beginning- A point in time or space where something starts.

32 year old Sebastian Vanwell, was a very successful yacht broker, who always loved the design and architecture of a luxurious yacht. His only addiction was being on the water. He loved it, he thrived on it, and he needed it in his life. After a very stable, loving child hood with a few bumps, Sebastian married the love of his life. The one person that he knew would always be there. Julia was his rock, and he loved her more than life itself. Sebastian kept his addiction to the water under control, wanting to keep his time with his wife and son his number one obsession, that was until he saw her. This new addiction haunted him, the one compulsion that he couldn’t control no matter how hard he tried.

Ysabelle Telle hit him hard, knocking the wind from his lungs. Coming from worlds apart, beautiful, dark complexion Ysabelle Telle didn’t have the rich, protected background that Sebastian Vanwell had. Ysabelle lived a life of hell, in poverty, growing up with a drug addict mother that never cared, and horrific living conditions. Ysabelle lived for one person and one person only; herself. She was pure perfection, her beauty along with a flawless body had men lined up, driveling over her insuring her success as a VIP.

There are too many words that describe the effects when two diverse worlds like theirs collide. They both have too much to lose to get caught in the forceful pull, which could destroy them both.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and drug use. Intended for mature audiences.





This isn't a love story, but a story about love..


We first meet "Ysabelle Telle" who lived in the ghetto with a mother who was always high on drugs or booze and who did the unthinkable to her daughter at the age of 12, what this 12 year old Ysabelle went through broke my heart, something no child should ever have to go through and I think this is where everything broke down for Ysabelle, this incident was her undoing, it shaped what life was going to become for her..



Then we meet Sebastian who lived a life of luxury, and had a best friend Julia, these two did everything together, she was his yin to his yang, even at the age of eight he had that protective edge about him for her and that protectiveness never changed throughout the whole story, and I think that was his down fall..


Then add Olivia who was being adopted by Julia's parents into this story and that first meeting between Olivia and Sebastian, this is where things start to get complicated..

From then on  they became the three musketeers..Where you would find one, you would find the other two..

"I love you, but I also love Julia, I can't hurt her, but at the same time I am hurting  you and it kills me inside."


The day Ysabelle turned sixteen she left home and moved to Miami with $100 dollars in her purse and only the clothes on her back..


But the day "Ysabelle" met "Madam" changed her life completely...


"I want to make you a VIP, I would be your "Madam" I would have complete control over what you do and whom you are with. You would be with both men and woman, sometimes it would be a party of two, and sometimes it could be more."




The only time Ysabelle ever felt true happiness and at peace within herself was when she was using her body..


"I wanted the control and with that I get power."



Without giving spoilers away when Sebastian and Ysabelle finally meet it's explosive, consuming, heartbreaking and above all else it pulls on your emotions..



Going into this book I didn't know what to expect, I thought it would be smutty as hell due to the content matter and the blurb and worried that I'd find myself getting bored, wrong wrong wrong!!

This book took me by surprise, it didn't start off where I thought it would start off it started right at the beginning where it all started, this won't make sense to you until you sit down and read this book..And you'll know exactly what I mean..

This could've come across really dark with some of the content portrayed in this book but believe me it doesn't at all..


The author has such a way of drawing you into this book that before you know it you've devoured it..So beautifully written!! And I can't wait to read more from this author!!

All for Maddie by Jettie Woodruff

 All for Maddie  - Jettie Woodruff

I believe in love at first sight... because I am a mother.

Living a complete lie, holding on to a secret that could cost me the most important thing in my life was about to surface.


I couldn’t breathe without Maddie. Maddie was my life. The saying about dying for your child is the absolute truth. The other things you would do are comparable to that of death. I know, I did those things.


I did unthinkable things, all for Maddie.


I continued the lie, the secrets with the one man who had no right. People say you always have options. That’s a lie. I had no choice. I did it all for her... for my Maddie.

Adult content...Sex /adult language.






Finally!! Thank you for getting me out of my book funk and giving me a 5 star book!!


This book will play on your emotions, fuck with your head and pull on your heart strings, to say I was all over the place reading this is an understatement!! And that there is why this book gets my 5 stars!!


Sitting there and reading this it felt like all my emotions had been put through the wringer and spat out, times where I was fed up with Whitley and just wanted to shake her, then we have the pleasure of meeting Alex Wesson or not so much pleasure at the beginning and this here is what became my mind fuck!!

What he did to her was despicable, (won't say the names I called him, but you get my drift) then the controlling games he played made my blood boil, and this is where my mind fuckery came into play because towards the end without me realizing it I started liking the bugga!!


So all I can say to everyone keep an open mind whilst reading this!!


I want to say so much more but will wait until we're closure to release date and I will add to my review as I don't want to give too much away..


I just hope you love this book as much as I did!!




Breaking Elle (Break Me, #1) by Antoinette Candela

Breaking Elle - Antoinette Candela

How is it that the one person who you have avoided is the same person who could give you true happiness?

When Elle Bennett meets Reed Austin she can't deny the attraction. She discovers that certain people come into your life who make you question everything that you've ever believed about love and life. Will she risk everything for something exciting and dangerous or will she choose what is familiar and secure?

Reed Austin isn't looking for love when he moves to Boston. The distance was supposed to help him escape the trouble he left behind. Once he meets, Elle, everything changes. Reed can't figure out why he's drawn to Elle, but one thing is certain - he needs her.

Passion. Betrayal. Solace. Confusion. Desperation.

Love and life are not simple and emotions and relationships are tested. Will attraction be enough or will their secrets and past keep them apart?






Elle's been with her boyfriend Cane for two years which seemed a solid kind of relationship..


Elle is in love with Cane but can't fight the attraction she feels towards Reed


But then add bad boy Reed into the mix and their attraction towards each other is sky rocketing hotness!!



The things Reed says are swoon worthy: (Here's a small taste of a swoon worthy moment)


"I'm jealous of your pillow and sheets; I want this cheek to rest on mine and to keep this body warm," he whispers..Eeekkk!!


 She's owned me from the first time I set eyes on her



But what about her best friend Tyler, who has pulled her through all the rough patches in her life and has been her rock, her one constant solid person in her life..




God this book had me all over the place, one minute I'm rooting for Cane, the next I want to bitch slap him, then I'm yeah go for Reed because he sounds hot, then he also has a few douche bag moments so then my last resort is her best friend Tyler!! I kind of feel like Elle I can't make up my mind who I want to be with lol..But then Tyler just seems like the safe option!!


I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for book 2 to be released!! *WANTS* Book 2!!

Tears of Tess (Monsters in the Dark #1) by Pepper Winters

Tears of Tess (Monsters in the Dark #1)  - Pepper Winters

A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.

“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?




"Tears of Tess" is the story of a young twenty year old named "Tess Snow" who gets kidnapped while on a romantic vacation in Mexico with her boyfriend Brax, that's when things take a turn for the worst, it gets dark, gritty and sometimes unbearable to read!!






"If anyone asked what I was most afraid of, what terrified me the most, what stole my breath away, and made my life flicker before my eyes, I would say three little words."




"I didn't belong to Brax any more, I didn't even belong to myself, I belonged to a bleak unknown, and terror filled future."


"Accept that you are no longer a woman. You are merchandise.And merchandise must have a barcode for sale."





My world ended as hands smothered my face, pressing a rag, reeking of chloroform against my nose and mouth.




I recognized the hum of craft engines, all I focused on was my survival, a black hood covered my head, as I sat there, hands bound and head aching from being drugged, I mentally prepared for the worst.




"Say hello to your new master."


A man in a grey chequered suit, complete with black shirt, silver tie, and short dark hair watched from the landing. His gaze unclothed and terrified me, everything about him screamed ruthless and power..


"You are no one's but mine. Do you understand?" "Your future is mine."


"Call me Q."


" I summon, you come, that's the only law you need to understand, I am your owner, you are mine."


"What is your name?" I crossed my arms, glaring, "Never!"




"Fine" he all but shouted, I will call you Dove, until you answer, like the grey-blue of your eyes.


You will from now on be known as "ESCLAVE!"



The truth hurts less than fibs and fakers. I had to abandon the truth and wrap myself in lies to survive. I had to change completely.



I really have no excuses why I didn't read this book sooner, I admit I did try but got as far as Tess and Brax's departure to Mexico at the airport and that's where I gave up as Tess was getting on my nerves..Then I looked at the reviews which are very mixed, it wasn't until 3 people told me to pick it up again and give it another shot, which is leads me here writing my 4.5 star review..I glad I gave this another chance, I picked it up again did a few eye roils at Tess but found I couldn't put this bugga of a book down!!

Jordan Matthews likes easy. Easy women. Easy life.

Then he meets Mia.

She’s damaged, troubled and has more baggage than any person can carry. But the more Jordan gets to know Mia-for the first time in his life-he finds himself wanting to try hard for something … for someone … for her.

And then life isn’t so easy anymore.

And when you stop, you get caught.

Recommended Reading Age 18+


This book doesn't hold back, some of the scenes in it are explicitly explained so your on a roller coaster of emotions which I guess is what Mia went through so it's a sneak peak into her abusive world..



We first come across Mia at the hospital being informed that he father "Oliver" as she calls him has passed away from a heart attack..

The instant she realized she was free she went a little wild, wild for Mia that is, drinking at bars, this is where she met Forbes. things moved quickly, dating morphed into Forbes becoming her boyfriend..


Her first boyfriend, Her first everything..


It seemed she'd jumped out of the fire into the frying pan when it came to Forbes, she escaped one life of hell only to land herself into another one just like it..And you can't help but feel sorry for Mia, you have to keep in mind she's led a very sheltered (abusive) life..


Mia explains why she stays with Forbes in her own words..Why do I stay? Because it's all I have ever known!!


"He beats me because he can, because I allow it, because I'm weak."


So imagine for a bit that your Mia, put yourself in her shoes, Forbes is all she has, she's got no friends, no family, no one to turn to..I couldn't imagine what that would've been like..


So she does the only thing she can think of and that's run away before he kills her, she drives for miles with a black eye and a cut on her forehead, numerous bruises marring her whole body..


She books herself in at an out of the way hotel, this is where Jordan comes into the story he's looking after the hotel..

Watch out he's going to turn into every girls new book boyfriend!!

He's lean, tall, tattooed, one covering his whole arm, dark long brown hair, surfer boy long which hangs in his eyes, with a strong jawline, everything about him screams male, he looks like sin, hot, dirty, incredible sex..


"Fuck me, Fucking, Fuck, Fuck, Fuck, the hottest chick I have ever seen in my life is standing before me wanting to book a room, she's stunning and I'm completely fucken screwed!"


"Mia isn't my usual type she's so much more, when I'm around her I feel alive, I'm going to make her see what I see when I look at her..


Incredible..Strong..Beautiful..So fucking beautiful..


I loved how things slowly brewed between Mia and Jordan, they both felt the attraction from that first meeting, but Jordan knew she was damaged/broken and to tread softly with her..Even though this was dark in places it was so beautifully written..

Fighting Redemption By Kate McCarthy

Fighting Redemption - Kate McCarthy

Ryan Kendall is broken. He understands pain. He knows the hand of violence and the ache of loss. He knows what it means to fail those who need you. Being broken doesn’t stop him wanting the one thing he can’t have; Finlay Tanner. Her smile is sweet and her future bright. She’s the girl he grew up with, the girl he loves, the girl he protects from the world, and from himself.

At nineteen, Ryan leaves to join the Australian Army. After years of training he becomes an elite SAS soldier and deploys to the Afghanistan war. His patrol undertakes the most dangerous missions a soldier can face. But no matter how far he runs, or how hard he fights, his need for Finlay won’t let go.

Returning home after six years, one look is all it takes to know he can’t live without her. But sometimes love isn’t enough to heal what hurts. Sometimes people like him can’t be fixed, and sometimes people like Finlay deserve more than what’s left.

This is a story about war and the cost of sacrifice. Where bonds are formed, and friendships found. Where those who are strong, fall hard. Where love is let go, heartache is born, and heroes are made. Where one man learns that the hardest fight of all, is the fight to save himself.





I've just finished this and it feels like all my emotions have been put through the wringer and spat out, this book will make you laugh, cry, you'll feel moments of anger you name it, you will feel it!!


Saying I loved this book is an understatement, I devoured it, it consumed me!!


Ryan's always dreamt of being a soldier just like his grandfather, he'd been ten years old when it had taken root in his head,even at that age his dream of being a soldier had already taken hold in his soul.


Life at home for Ryan was a nightmare, his dad was an asshole and a drunk, becoming a soldier would be Ryan's escape plan and something he had to focus on..


That was until Fin stumbled into his life and he nearly lost focus of that goal..A strong bond of friendship forms between Ryan, Finlay and her brother Jake is breathtakingly beautiful, they became fast friends..



Ryan was sixteen when he realized the tightening in his chest when he looked at Fin and that one simple word echoed in his head when he thought of her as "Mine" but that's where he kept on putting up barriers, he couldn't feel that way, Ryan had to keep his main focus on fighting his way out of town..


How could he do that if Fin owned his heart?

By eighteen Ryan ached constantly with the need to touch her, consume her, make her his..


What do you care about he asked her one night, "I want to be a scientist."

"What about you Ryan, what do you care about?"


"Being in the army, being a soldier, I want to get out, I need to get out, I can't live at that place for much longer, I want to be SAS", he replied.


"Your leaving", she choked out.

"I'm sorry," he said.


"In the morning."

"I have to do this", he whispered hoarsely.

"You understand, don't you Fin, why I have to do this?"

"Don't let anyone stop you from being who you need to be."


That was the last time he saw Finlay Tanner


A month later Jake joined him on the other side of the country, after three years of rigorous daily grind in the Army, they both made it through the SAS selection.. Two soldiers who may not share the same blood, but brothers in every sense of the word..


Brothers until the end



Six long grueling years go by



"Six years, Ryan, do you know how hurt I was, each day passing by and not even a note or an email? I didn't just lose you, I lost my brother too, both of you left me, but I was ok with that, I understood that this was what you needed to do, so I moved on."

"I'd have given you my entire heart if only you'd only asked, but you never did, but it's not yours now."
