“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.
“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.”
REVIEW: Holy Hell! This story was a terrifying trip to hell and back, in the most unlikeliest of ways. Nothing about the book was predictable and I read through gritted lips as the absolute worst case scenarios played out.
Quintessentially Q was heart-wrenching, gut-clenching romance in the darkest sense. These two people's love -albeit so very different from the norm- was incredibly strong and deep. Their dark place they find with one another is a place of redemption for two floating souls... so, so beautifully overwhelming.
Yet there were so many times when I paused to question my own sanity that I understood their motives. Then there were the doubts of humanity itself at such acts as Tess endured in her captivity, acts that had me murmuring "holy shit, holy shit, holy shit" as I read. The moments between Tess and Quincy were amazing though, and the author's ability to convey their needs was nothing short of masterful. These characters got each other, were made for one another and together, they made their world make sense. I can't wait for the next book!!
Here's the line that has stayed with me since reading the final page...
