Blog Tour: Twisted Together by Pepper Winters; Review + Giveaway






Twisted Together (Monsters in the Dark #3)
Author: Pepper Winters
Release Date: 3 June 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.

Excerpt

I looked at my wrist, tracing the numbers beneath the barcode and sparrow. I’d once been merchandise for sale. But then the winds of fate changed and blew me straight to Q. His cage became my home. His love became my wings. I became his bird through and through.

Tears pricked my eyes. I was so utterly happy, so faultlessly content, so completely complete.


Review


It's fairly easy for me to say that I loved this book! I've loved watching Q and Tess battle their demons and their enemies, and come out of these fights together. That's certainly not to say that they've not come out broken and bruised, but they survived. One of my favourite things about Twisted Together is the sense of closure and acceptance for both Q and Tess. They both finally get a chance to resolve their monsters, or at least accept them. 

Q proves once again that there is nothing he won't do to help heal Tess. She has been left with scars that prevent her from being able to fully embrace life with Q. Tess has the chance to become a strong fighter again, stronger than she's ever been.
I loved the dual POV in this because I finally feel like we unravel the mystery that is Quincy Mercer. He has been straddling the line between light and dark, right and wrong, his entire life and my heart broke for him. He suffered through horrors when he was a child and I don't even want to talk about what he goes through during the book! I damn near had a heart attack/ nervous breakdown at points in this story.

This may be the longest book yet in the Monsters in the Dark series, but the story flies by in a whirlwind of lust, love, healing and hell. The first half has a slower pace as Q and Tess still struggle to overcome events from the past in order to embrace their future wholeheartedly. The second half was a lot more intense as consequences catch up with Tess and Q, and I read an awful lot of it with my heart in my mouth.
I loved the ending of the book!! It made my heart sigh with happiness and contentment, the epilogue was the perfect way to close out their story.

Overall, this is a dark and intense read as I've come to savour from Pepper Winters. If there's a more tortured soul in the book world than Q, I've yet to meet him and Tess is his perfect match. I loved this book and if you've yet to start reading this series then I highly recommend you read it very soon!
