Editorial Reviews


What an incredible ride - I think this book just about ripped my heart out. I know it's a well worn reviewer's cliché to claim that a 'book owned me' but never was it truer than when i was reading Quintessentially Q. It's heart-breaking. 5 stars.--Sinfully Sexy Books
6 Stars

Dark, intense, dramatic, and outright shocking. And I enjoyed every minute of it!--Crave the Angst Reviews

Tess the girl has more balls then book 1, "what the hell, Q? That's the third time this week. You going to tell me what you're dreaming about to warrant howling like a werewolf?" Q he can admit things in his mind but NEVER out loud to where people can hear him, "I may be a controlling bas****, but the moment Tess stalked into my life I lost my balls to her." And the things that man says get me all hot and bothered, "tonight, I'm going to tie you upside down and force you to drink my come, esclave. Then I'm going to eat you until you forget your own name." Q he gets defensive about things, "I can take you to dinner without your permission. All I need to do is starve you until you effing yield." He's a possessive man, "damn right I wouldn't allow her to go to the hospital. She needed to heal here. Where I had a top of the line security system and a crew of men ready to kill and then ask questions. She would never be out of my sight again." I think for the first time in Q's life he doesn't know what to do or think, "does she still think I won't let her talk to the outside world! She isn't my effing prisoner. Of course she can have a laptop." I can't wait for the third book!

How can anyone give this 2nd book 5 stars???? In over half the book the heroine is beaten, tortured, starved, drugged until she gets pneumonia with lungs full of fluid, has her finger broken with pliers and is made to kill other broken girls. This was too much. WAY too much. This was on the way to a beautiful love story and then WTF? It was also ridiculous that after Q finds her he doesn't take her to a doctor right then. This woman has a cough so bad you can hear her lungs drowning in fluid and they have broken her finger off with pliers and it is bleeding profusely everywhere but he gives her to someone to hold while he talks to all the bad guys and then takes his time and slowly kills them.. That is just crazy!! I understand the need to tell a different story and make it dark and gritty. The author just took this too far. I was so sad because it ruined a story that was well on its way to being one of my favorites. You spend so much time reading these stories and feel like part of them and then to have it ruined was depressing.

The Review:
I'll never be the same again!

My Feels...
I dont even know where to start with this review. These characters... this story... absolutely flayed me. It cut me open, splayed me out and drained me of everything. I know that sounds dramatic but thats how I felt when I hit that last page. I went through so many emotions... so many angsty, darn emotions while I lived through the confusion, the happiness, the horror, the sorrow and then absolute awe and amazement while reading this book. And then finally, the stunning, powerful ending that left me in complete wonderment as the controlling monster did the unthinkable for love.

At one point, my soul completely shattered and my hoped died along with Q's and Tess's. This book wrenched tears from me I don't normally shed for fictional characters but I've been on this sordid, turbulent journey with these characters twice now and I've grown obsessed with them. So of course I felt their pain and anguish as clearly as they felt it in the story. Thats just how wonderfully written this series is. My heart hurt. It felt abused and ripped out and I wanted... no.. needed a happy ending for this couple.

Did they get it? I'm not telling :) Read the book.

So many feelings surfaced while gliding through these gut wrenching pages... one by one... all at the same time, they just bombarded me and left me knowing with certainty, that for me, this is my favorite book of 2013!

“She fulfilled my humanness. I could never let her go.”

I am sitting here trying to work out how to start this review. I finished reading QQ about six hours ago and I have thought about it ever since. You see, I want to write a review fitting of the best book I have ever read; I need to find the right words to convey to you just how amazing this book is. So, here goes.

I read a lot of books. Some are good, some are bad and some are added to my favourite list. Due to my capacity as a book reviewer for a blog, I often have to start one as soon as I finish one. So, I read them, love them and move on. I am not the kind of reader to gush about books or swoon too much over characters. Sure, I love them but I don’t go on and on about them like some readers do. However, every now and then a writer and a book come along and knock me for six. Usually these books are magnificent in their subtlety. The writer’s ability to convey character, emotion, trauma and growth is such that I find the story sneaks up on me and takes a hold of my heart gradually as the story unfolds. At some point in the story it hits me; it slams into my soul, grips me and doesn’t let go. Pepper Winters is such a writer and this book had me in its grips from the very start.

QQ is the follow up book to Tears of Tess and you do need to have read that one before you read this one. I was in awe of Pepper’s writing ability after that one. QQ has just solidified that for me.

In ToT, Pepper led me down the path to falling for Q Mercer. I didn’t think it could happen but it did. That book was Tess’s book; this one, for me, was definitely Q’s. At 61% of the book, I realised I had totally and unequivocally fallen for Q.
