Book Review: TWISTED TOGETHER by Pepper Winters

Genre: Dark romance
Publication Date: June 3, 2014


“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.



I've been waiting crazy for Twisted Together since I finished Quintessentially Q so when it was finally out I was more than thrilled to find out what was going to happen to the unforgettable Tess and Q. Their story has never been easy so a lot happens to these two broken, fierce, and beautiful souls as I expected it in this last installment. Their sanities and love for each other are challenged once again in more painful ways than ever before but it's the beauty of the darkness inside them that guides them to the ultimate light.♥
"The blackness tried to swallow us whole, kill us, ruin us, capture our soul."
I recommend reading the Monsters in the Dark series in order since each book follows the other for one full amazing story. This last installment is a combination of everything that happened in Tess and Q's past and how all of that now comes to affect their present and future.

Tess has been such a unique character for me since Tears of Tess; I have never cried so much, felt so much heart-wrenching pain, and wanted to avenge a heroine so much like I have with Tess. She has gone through so freaking much that her strength amazes me beyond words. In Twisted Together she showed that furious strength of hers but before that she showed how her past had broken her and the only person that could bring her back was her maitre Q, her one and only monster in the dark.

Q stole my heart in Quintessentially Q like no other hero has but in this book he completely outdid himself. This man is absolutely-madly-deeply in love with his esclave and the measures he goes to show it are heartbreaking, admirable, and sometimes quite scary. But that's Q, he's ruthless and unforgiving when it comes to protect what's his and I adored that about him. Just as Tess he's broken too but in a different way. His battle is with the demons inside him; his very dark desires and his love for Tess constantly conflict. This book shows how he struggles with all of that and how he comes to free himself at the end.

I fell in love with every single word in this book. Tess and Q's connection was again beautifully portrayed in a unique, exquisite, and dark-poetic way. Together these characters were explosive, raw, intense, and so ardently devoted to each other. Their love is like no other so they fight furiously to protect it until the end.
“We are blood of blood, echoing heartbeat and answering breath; nothing can break us, not even death.”
This was the perfect ending for a perfect series. I loved it! This book brought me to tears, excited me to no end, gave me delicious suspense and the peace I needed when it came to these amazing characters. This book had it all! Moreover, Tess and Q got a wonderful HEA of which I couldn't be more happy with so I'm more than content with how Pepper leaves the story.

Monsters in the Dark is a must read series from me. Pepper Winters is marvelous with her writing and the the journey she takes with this story and characters is just unforgettable. One of my favorite stories of all-times for sure!♥
