“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?
** Trigger Warning **
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.
This was my first book by Pepper Winters needless to say it is not my last.
This story is Dark and Beautiful and will set you on an uncontrollable roller coaster ride full of Raw and Mixed Emotions. The world Pepper created for us to traverse through is amazing and the depth of the characters is extraordinary.
Tess thought she was broken and settled for the man she thought she loved Brax that was until her life was flipped upside down and she found out what true happiness for her is and that was Q. She knew she loved Brax and that he loved her but she did not feel complete with him as her desires where more than Brax could handle. So while on vacation with Brax their life together become a roller coaster ride from hell. Though Tess eventually finds happiness though that was not an easy task as she endures more than anyone should but she overcame it and finally found where she belonged.
Q believes he is a monster and that he can not have what he wants that is until he finds Tess together they become one in the Monsters in the Dark. Q always did the right thing trying to fix his past and what his father did to women. HE had the monster within himself contained that was until Tess was delivered to him as a gift.
With all the twist and turns throughout this amazing book Tess was released from Q only to find her way back to him this time on her own.
There is so much I want to say but I refuse to leave spoilers all I will say is go now and add this amazing series to your TBR Pile.
