Je Suis à Toi by Pepper Winters Blog Tour

“Life taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.”

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.

I’m his.

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.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

You will, of course, need to read the previous books in order to enjoy this book. This book was everything you could hope for and then some. Tess and Q are an amazing couple, they love so fiercely and it comes through every page you read. Tess knows Q is holding a secret, her mind goes in a million directions on what it could be. The way they are still both afraid of losing each other and their desperate need to claim and mark each other is borderline obsessive, but that is how they work. This couple is so all consuming, just like the books are. I love this series, it will go down as one of my all-time favorites.

Characters: Well written
Sex: Oh yeah!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Dark Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

I am among the minority with my rating of this book, and I will apologize in advance to the die-hard fans, but I didn't love this.

I must admit that Tess & Q are one of my favorite "dark" couples, when I found out that their story was going to be continued, I was absolutely ecstatic!

The story seemed to drag along, there was way too much insecurity on both characters’ parts. This immediately bothered me, and it went on for the majority of the book. Q always questions his dark instincts, this is normal for him, but I feel his brooding was just too much (and seemed out of character). Then Tess's continual questioning of their relationship drove me insane.

This was a "novella" that just felt like it drug along way too long.

Once I was able to get past what seemed like two different characters constantly fretting, the story did pick up.

I want to believe that the reason I didn't LOVE this story was due to my own head-space and stuff going on, I will try to read this again in a few months and see if I still feel as strongly as the first read.
