My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ok ok.. I loved this!!
If you ever read my reviews and listen to my rants and ravs on the books I read and review, then listen to me here: READ THE MONSTERS IN THE DARK SERIES, I'm talking dark, epic, LOVE of the raw primal animalistic need of LOVE.. And Q MYYY Q you will want to meet him.. And boy have I missed him.. So did I enjoy this? Hell yes.. Actually this series made me love dark romances, I fell in love with edgier reads because of this series so if I can love them then I bet your Ass you can.. Just saying..
I didn't need sweet sincerity. I needed a man. A monster. A master to fuck me. I needed him to take away my choice because then I could give in. I could stop thinking. I could be nothing more than Tess with her Q and scream and cry and beg and pant and thrust and thrust on the majestic cock of my saviour and husband.
So what's it about?
To me this was an epilogue to their romance, and a great edition to closing what we've read up to now. Tess has been brought, been through the mill and Q has dark needs.. So they have a relationship that is full of need and want and boy do they still WANT AND NEED EACH OTHER. This ending is full of sexy moments. And there's also moments of them as a couple loving each other and seeing what any relationship worries about, yet for Q he worries he's too dark and twisted for a normal relationship..
My thoughts and feelings
Do not worry here, Pepper has still made us love Q and Tess and continue to enjoy their ups and downs as a couple, as a twisted couple, but also as a different couple.. There is the added notion of them being a normal couple in a normal relationship, butttt they have an edgier sexier need that is still there and is theirs.. I loved every sexy moment, every part that was full of worry and all those endearing moments.. I will forever love Q and Tess and listen to me read this.. It's a ride, at times hard but then at times wonderful, beautiful and this book was a perfect conclusion to their very twisted relationship..
I wanted her. No, I was beyond that. I was fucking obsessed with her.

“Life taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.”
“Don’t struggle. You know I’ll keep you safe.” Q’s murmur danced down my back.
My panic receded as trust billowed fast and true.
Q was born into darkness, but he’d never baptized me in his blackest desires. And because of that, I could implicitly say he spoke the truth. No matter what he did to me, he would never truly harm me.
Q paused, his tattooed chest soaking. His feathered sparrows fluffing off droplets almost alive on his skin. “I told you once never to fall for me. That I didn’t want the curse of breaking your heart while I broke so many other pieces of you.” His hands landed on my breasts, cupping them reverently. “Yet you fought me, just like you said you would. You fell for me, just like you promised me you would. And now, you’re willing to give me what I need even after I tricked you and lied.”
I swayed as I fell even deeper for this complex husband of mine. Q was all my fantasies in one glorious lifetime. The fact he finally wanted to share me with his child spoke volumes about his capacity to love.
“I’m so glad you ignored me, esclave.” His fingertips branded my nipples with pain. “So fucking happy you married me.” Pushing me backward, he smiled harshly as my spine met the pool wall. His chest strained as he sucked in a heavy breath. “You’re so fucking beautiful.”
My heart hammered in my ears as he kissed me.
His tongue laced with mine, and I sank into the sweet embrace, knowing it would be the last I received tonight. The air crackled with an impending storm. Q’s control frayed every second, his eyes drenching in determination and the salacious need to hurt.
Breaking the kiss, he opened his hand, revealing the other item he’d retrieved.
A tiny pair of silver scissors.
