After reading and enjoying Quintessentially Q, I had to read this. Ms Winters has a reputation for putting her characters through Hell before permitting them a happy ending - or, at least, happy for them.
I'd give the first 90% of the book five stars. Q's crazy ideas to "fix" Tess, his hot-and-cold need to make her his wife, then the suspense that I could see building...and it was brilliant. I found the wedding and wedding night particularly weird - especially given the stress it caused the two main players in that particular performance - and the last chapter seemed a very odd, too-happy note to end on, for a couple as dark as these two. Admittedly, I've never entirely understood Tess and her relationship with Q - so perhaps this was always the way their story had to be. It was great to finally see her show strength in this book - for the first time, it seemed she really knew herself.
I would probably give this a four and a half star.
I feel like I have been on a strange journey and have survived the darkness. Q and Tess are forever imprinted on my soul. I loved this story but admit that I couldn't read all the torturous scenes describing Q's capture. It was way too dark and intense.
For me this story was a page turner and I was captivated from the beginning of book one. Pepper Winters is a true storyteller, but I do feel I have to go and read something a little more lighter next. I need some lightness.
What a series pepper winters is an amazing writer. I was captivated. I cried. I swooned. Just absolutely mesmerising xo and picturing Q in his black attire on his wedding day ggggrrrr as haunting and dark as this series is it is also healing and beautiful. Well done pepper I will read all from you xo
I could not get enough of this book! Being the last book of the trilogy I was blown away! Pepper, you are an amazing writer and should be proud to bring such heartfelt, courageous and breathtaking words to all readers. These books are addictive and satisfying. An intense, loving, beautiful series I have recommended to many. I'll forever be inlove with Q, tess and the story of freeing trapped birds ;)
Twister Together is emotionally deeper and more intense than the first 2 in the series. It's hard to describe the feeling when I turned the last page however I do know, I'll never have my fill of Q & Tess's story. Pepper... This series is one of the smartest series I have ever read. How you managed to write the characters, emotions and events is beyond me. You truly have a rare gift.
A truly ......oh hell I'm speechless. I don't know how to put into words what a great read this book, well all 3 are. I'm not a fan of bdsm etc but this is written superbly. If your a fan of fifty shades well this series stomps all over them and kicks them under the bed. It's brilliant.
Twisted together is the third and final book in the Monsters in the Dark Trilogy by Pepper Winters. Just WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW! I was blown away by what happens in this book, everything that they went through and how Ms. Winters wrapped up the story. Be still my heart! It is sheer brilliance. Ms. Winters is a true master of her craft!! OMG!! I love this series sooooo very much. I have read it several times now and still love it as much as I did the first time. Ms. Winters' work was the first ‘dark’ romance that I had ever read, and I was hooked. No ifs, buts or maybes- I was completely under her deliciously dark spell, and through her, my reading world expanded to include books with a darker and edgier tone. Her books are breathtaking, mesmerizing, and incredibly addictive. I was devouring each of her books and thinking to myself that I shouldn’t like what I was reading, but I DID- I loved it- and couldn’t put the book/s down. I had to know what would happen. In every book I read, Ms. Winters tears me apart and then slowly, piece by piece, puts me back together again. Her stories are definitely not for the faint of heart- they are not fluffy lolly pops and rainbow romances. They are intense, overwhelming, gritty, raw, brutal, erotic, emotionally devastating- with electrically charged chemistry that sizzles right off the pages. Ms. Winters made me want things that I had never considered before. And I liked it. Reading her books is a sensory experience, everything is heightened, at times I felt like my nervous system was in overload. My heart’s in my mouth and I am on the very edge of my seat with wide eyes, dry mouth and heart palpitations. Sometimes the story got so intense that I felt I needed to close my eyes, but still I kept reading. ALL of her stories are on my favourite reads list- and she is my go to, one click, I don’t care if it’s her shopping list I’m going to read it, author. If you haven’t read her work before, do yourself a favour and take a walk on the ‘dark’ side- she really is an exceptional author….but be warned, her stories contain subject matter that may cause triggers for some people. All I can recommend is to buckle up, because you’re in for a ride you won’t ever forget! I cannot recommend this book/series highly or strongly enough. If you like a ‘darker’ read, you will love this book- and if you are looking for something to add some intense flavour to your otherwise vanilla existence- then this book/series is definitely the one for you!! A must read!!!! KUDOS!!!!
