Title: Je Suis à Toi
Series: Monsters In the Dark 3.5
Author: Pepper Winters
Release Date: May 27, 2016
Q made me the happiest esclave in the world. He gave me his heart, his empire, his ruthless unforgiving love. And life finally left us in peace.
A man like my maître has special needs though, growing stronger as our lives intertwine. The only way to survive his monster is to agree to all his desires.
Including his latest wish.
And I won’t refuse.
“Don’t struggle. You know I’ll keep you safe.” Q’s murmur danced down my back.
My panic receded as trust billowed fast and true.
Q was born into darkness, but he’d never baptized me in his blackest desires. And because of that, I could implicitly say he spoke the truth. No matter what he did to me, he would never truly harm me.
Q paused, his tattooed chest soaking. His feathered sparrows fluffing off droplets almost alive on his skin. “I told you once never to fall for me. That I didn’t want the curse of breaking your heart while I broke so many other pieces of you.” His hands landed on my breasts, cupping them reverently. “Yet you fought me, just like you said you would. You fell for me, just like you promised me you would. And now, you’re willing to give me what I need even after I tricked you and lied.”
I swayed as I fell even deeper for this complex husband of mine. Q was all my fantasies in one glorious lifetime. The fact he finally wanted to share me with his child spoke volumes about his capacity to love.
“I’m so glad you ignored me, esclave.” His fingertips branded my nipples with pain. “So fucking happy you married me.” Pushing me backward, he smiled harshly as my spine met the pool wall. His chest strained as he sucked in a heavy breath. “You’re so fucking beautiful.”
My heart hammered in my ears as he kissed me.
His tongue laced with mine, and I sank into the sweet embrace, knowing it would be the last I received tonight. The air crackled with an impending storm. Q’s control frayed every second, his eyes drenching in determination and the salacious need to hurt.
Breaking the kiss, he opened his hand, revealing the other item he’d retrieved.
A tiny pair of silver scissors.

I'm sitting here staring at my computer screen, because I just don't know what to say about this book. I loved it on one hand because it's the truly traditional HEA we have been dying for for Q and Tess. But on the other hand, I struggled with parts of it because it was redundant and felt like we were beating a dead horse. I found myself getting very very frustrated with Q and his inability to see anything past his own ideals, opinions, wants and needs.
But then on the other hands, this is typical Q, so it shouldn't surprise me.. but for this, it did. His reactions, or overreactions, they all just got under my skin and seemed irritating to me. But then I'm sitting here wondering .. is this just me. I mean I do have a lot going on in my life personally. Is that making me have a short trigger? Is that making me get irritated quickly? Is that messing with my bookmeter?
I love these two characters. I mean hands down adore them. And I am absolutely obsessed with Pepper Winters and her writing style. It is addictive, and this book didn't disappoint in that aspect. I still couldn't put it down. I just struggled with the characters. But the storyline, absolute perfection.
I gave this book a 4 Star review
