“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 is Back in

I was so happy to learn there was another book involving Tess and Q. I read the other books and honestly loved them! I found this whole storyline very different and often very suspenseful. They are an extremely complicated couple, their connection through their love and the pain of their pasts is powerful. And yet, there were so many doubts that popped into each of these characters' heads at times.
I feared that one day my submission in the bedroom and my fight in every other facet of our life wouldn't be enough. That one day, he'd find another slave girl -- rescued from abuse and a life of pain -- and find her brokenness more desirable than unflappable strength.
We were convinced of our love for one another. Yet so distrusting of it, too.
Q has a secret and Tess is desperate to find out what it is. He tells her in time he will talk to her, but he drags it out whenever she brings it up. While I was super frustrated with Q over and over in this book, it was hard to stay that way when you felt his love for Tess. But Tess is a strong woman and I loved her for that. She tried her hardest to get Q to talk to her and come out from his darkness.
There isn't too much more I want to say because I don't want to give anything away. This is a great read....There was a point I hit that I couldn't put it down and finished it in one day. If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend it!!
Murmuring into our kiss, Q said, "Every hour makes me love you more. Every year, every minute, every moment we spend together. Tess...you do more than complete me. You heal me. And I'll spend my life making sure you understand that."
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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.
