SYNOPSIS

“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?

This is the first book I’ve ever read by Pepper Winters and it will not be my last!  

In the name of the wee man, this woman can write! 

This story has it all. Heartache, horror, passion, and a couple of awesome plot twists that I just was not expecting.  

Quite often I can guess where a story is going before it gets there, and that’s ok but this one didn’t go where I thought it was going to and I loved the surprises. 

The characters are so well written you can pretty much see them jumping out of the page at you (yes please Q!). 

In the beginning, I was a little apprehensive, because I wasn’t sure I was gonna like Tess, however, she evolved beautifully and now I love her

TESS 

So, poor Tess is a little bit of a complicated character. She has never really been truly loved for who she is, and it shows. Her parents didn’t really want her and her boyfriend wants a “nice” girl who is ok with the vanilla lifestyle.  

Because she is starved for love and has a desperate need to belong, she fits into Brax’s rather simple life just perfectly…for him. However, that leaves her desperately unfulfilled sexually. 

Sex with the lights off, no PDA’s and no kinky fuckery whatsoever. 

Still, Tess has this little spark of kink in her that she can’t quite seem to extinguish.

On a holiday to Mexico, they somehow get off the beaten path and go into a run-down little cafe and this is the turning point in both of their lives.

BRAX 

Hmm…I’m really not impressed with this guy. He’s the kind of boy (yes, he’s a boy in my opinion. Age, does not a man make) that needs a woman to really need him. And it’s not in a dominant/Daddy way. He needs an emotionally weak woman in order to feel good about himself…I think. To be honest I found him to be a bit of a wet noodle, lol.

He’s not a terrible person…it’s just that he and Tess have been together for 2 years or so and he has NEVER given her an orgasm! Like, ever…Not only that but when she tried to maybe bring something extra into the bedroom other than the missionary position he made her feel like there was something wrong with her!  

Q

Wow. Where do I begin with this man? (see, this is a real man) Even now as I’m at my laptop writing this review, whenever I think of some of the scenes with him in this book my heart flutters a little.

Tess is given to him as a slave by a man trying to sweeten a dodgy business deal. From the second Tess walks through his front door hissing and spitting like a wild cat his cock gets hard and the fun and games begin with surprises on both sides.

I mean holy alpha balls, Batman. 

So many inner demons though. Okay, so he is also an asshole. But aren’t all of the good ones? There are some dark and twisted secrets here that explain a lot but not until the very end of the book. I can’t say too much about him as I don’t want to spoil any of the story for you.

I will say, however, the depths of this man’s emotions are unfathomable. He is dark. He is twisted. He is alpha to the motherfuckin’ core. More pain? Yes please, Q.

  “I’m not afraid of hurting you. I’m afraid of how far I’m willing to go.” – Q

SEX SCENES

Okay there are great sex scenes and then there are these freakin’ sex scenes. *wipes sweat off brow*, wow. 

I am not ashamed to admit that I had to change my knickers a couple of times throughout this book…like…damn, dude. Seriously. Fucking. Hot. Ms Winters really takes you there with them, breathing in his scent, feeling her pain and just hanging on the edge of glory. 

I hated him, knew what he did was wrong, but my body, shit, my body didn’t care. Q gave me something I needed since I’d started dreaming of sinful things, started looking at images online of men fucking women with a fine edge of violence. – Tess

I wanted him so badly, but I wanted to fight just as much. The act of saying no did strange things to me, turning sex from mediocre to knee-wobbly and carnal. – Tess

Q bit my shoulder, fingers digging deep into my hips, jerking me back, thrust after thrust. – Tess

FINAL THOUGHTS on TEARS OF TESS by Pepper Winters

I enjoyed this book so much. I loved these two and the passion on every page!  The way it ended left me with a need to immediately download the next book in the series to see what happens next. 

It’s one I would suggest reading while you are safely locked away in your bedroom though, lol.
