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

Quintessentially Q by 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.




Woah! I thought Book 1 was good, but this Book 2 totally blew me away. I'm consumed by this story. I never thought I will cry so much for a presumably kinky read. This is one of the most epic 'dark' romance I've ever read.

Usually in a trilogy, Book 2 tends to be a filler book with inconsequential things happening. But for Monsters in the Dark series, Quintessentially Q might just be the most powerful book in the series. So many things are happening, it was a train wreck, it was devastating and horrible and absolutely hard to me to get through. But I held on to the believe that...

“there’s always light in the darkness.” 

This time the story was told in alternate POV between Tess and Q and it was absolutely amazing to be able to get into the head of Q. This man was really intense and I'm amazed that he haven't suffered from aneurysm yet from all this pressure and inner battles.

Tess and Q are now officially together, but they still have some obstacles in front of them. They need to figure out how their relationship works and how far can they can go with to feed their inner darkest desire.

"We both fumbled in the dark, trying to figure out the rules of our connection, and until we learned to read and believe in each other, we were doomed."

When the first quarter started off, everything just feel nice and dandy despite them working out their issue. Here I thought this might just be another filler book. But that was just the calm before the storm. When Tess was kidnapped by the second time, things just turned into total nightmare!

And I mean totally horrible, fuck up and mind blowing.

It was hard to read about torture and I sobbed for Tess for what she had to endure. But the part with Q turning berserk and Hulk smash his way to reclaim his woman, I just feel more and more in love with him. I'm cheering Q to kill every motherfuckers that came into his path. I've never been so bloodthirsty in my life. Kill 'em all, Q.

Will Q be able to save Tess before time runs out? Will Tess remain the strong fighter that Q had grown to love and adore?

Seeing Q so distraught make me want to cry. He got his girl back, but Tess is no longer who she is anymore.

The last quarter of the book was really shocking. Woah! I never thought they would have resort to that. I've never experience thing that can be so wrong and so right at the same time. It was freaking intense. I'm sweating and hyperventilating while I'm reading it. In the end, I'm pretty exhausted for Tess and Q and I still have Book 3 to go. Deep breathe. 

“You stole my loneliness. I may have given you wings, but you've become my gravity. I’ll never be free of your force.”

Rating 5/5
