Review: Twisted Together ( Monsters in the Dark #3 ) by Pepper Winters

Twisted Together by Pepper Winters

“After battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything—my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life. And for a while, I thought it broke me, that I’d never be the same. But slowly the beast is growing bolder, and it’s finally time to show Tess how beautiful the dark can be.” 

Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he’s still a monster inside. 

After surviving the darkness, a new dawn has begun. Twisted Together wades through black to grey, chasing the light of true love to banish the shadows forever. 

Pain is a requirement, connection a necessity. But ultimately Q and Tess must face their demons, before they can embrace their future.




We'll finally find peace in the dark - 

What an epic conclusion to Monsters in the Dark and for my favourite kinky couple, Tess and Q. Aside from the first quarter whereby I find it was repetitive and too much back and forth when Q was dealing with Tess' mental state, the plot do pick up after 50% and then it was pure awesomeness.

I thought Tess situation was dealt with by the end of book 2, but apparently it isn't and Q is still having a hard time trying to heal Tess and make her enjoy pain again. Now whenever he turn aggressive, Tess flinched from his touch. It pains him to see his enslave is no longer the strong woman he grown to love. But Q is always understanding the best lover ever, he rather hide his inner desire than to hurt Tess anymore.

Okay, the aforementioned problem was solve when Q came up with another bizarre form of therapy for Tess. And we can finally move forward to put the past behind us. 

Yeah, lets the hotness begin. I just love all their sex scenes. Q make it as though is an art form. He was damn creative when it comes to bondage. I wonder where did he got those ideas from, is there a handbook somewhere?

It wasn't a body orgasm. It was more than that.
It was a soul orgasm. 

I bet only Q can have that kind of capability. And I wouldn't be surprised if Q turned out to be a shapeshifter seeing he constantly talking about his inner beast. 

"How am I supposed to play footsies with you if you leap a fucking mile?"
"Did you just say footsie?"

I was laughing my ass off when Q said that word. It was just so out of character yet so funny.

Things were nice and dandy until Q life was threaten when he exposed the smuggling ring and human trafficking to the authorities during his previous search for Tess. Someone wanted him to pay and Q safety is in jeopardy. 

Will Tess and Franco able to get to Q in time? I just love seeing how both Q and Tess can so willingly sacrifices everything for each other without a thought. Their brand of love totally consumed one another and me as a reader totally got sucked into it as well. 

"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."

What a conclusion. Honestly, I'm now thoroughly exhausted after going through the 3 books marathon. Every books were so intense and mind blowing. If you like a dark romance with a hero to die for and some awesome plot beside of just hot sex, don't miss this series. Now I'm in need of a sweet YA read next to lighten up. 

"Je suis a toi. Je suis ton monstre dans le noir pour toujours." 

p/s: I'm ecstatic to know that there is a novella coming up for Tess and Q. I also wouldn't mind if Pepper write a novella for Franco and Suzette as well.

Rating 5/5
