*Quintessentially Q is the second book in the Monsters In The Dark Series*

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.

Wow. I have been left completely and utterly speechless after reading this book. Pepper Winters has done it again and created such a insanely mind blowing story which has you feeling both physical and emotional pain for her characters. You are instantly dragged into this intensely dark world, and are left asking yourself if you will ever be able to find your way back to your own reality. How is it possible that Quintessentially Q (QQ) was even darker and more fucked up than Tears of Tess was? When I had read Tears of Tess (ToT) I swore there was nothing that could possibly be more twisted than that. Now here I am, body shaking, and mind spasming, and I'm not sure if I can ever recover from this story. Honestly, A white padded room sounds really good right about now. I couldn't believe that I actually and to put the book down and take a break a few times while reading, just to try and calm my racing, heart and keep myself from shattering into a million unfixable pieces.
You were shown so much more of Q in this book than you were in the past, and the complexity of both him and Tess completely amazes me. I cannot express enough how much I loved being able to understand the depths of both these characters and learning the different ways each of them viewed the world. In addition to seeing the true depth of Q's darkness, and finally being able to see the actual beast that lived inside him, you were also able to see this softer part of him where the light clearly shone through.
"I wanted to own her past, her present, her future. I wanted to be her first and last and fucking forever."
With Tess having returned back to Q, she allowed herself to venture into the darkness which he had been fighting so hard to resist. Would she be able to not only accept the darkness that Q carried around inside him, but want it and crave it as well?
"Q was all my nightmares, fantasies, and needs rolled into one bestial package. He was my drug of choice and I'd been craving him for four long days."
One thing is for sure, I seriously did NOT expect the direction this story went. I expected dark. I expected fucked up. But I did not expect the complete mind fuck which was thrown at me. I couldn't possibly continue reading… there was no way I could stop. My heart raced… my heart ceased to beat. I was completely and utterly broken, and yet I would do it over and over to myself time and time again. I was left wondering which was more twisted… the story itself, or me for loving the book as much as I did.
"My soul burned with the urge to kill. No ounce of humanity existed- tonight it was all about death."
This was a must must MUST read!!!! If you thought you knew darkness before, then you are in for one hell of an awakening!
