Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters


A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.

“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?

What I Think

Tears of Tess puts you through so many emotions you are scared for Tess one minute then you hoping she finds her way. I really love books that to that to the reader, it was like being there with her it was written amazingly and i really cant wait until Quintessentially Q comes out.

The first couple of chapters i had one hand to my mouth thinking they cant do this to her nearly crying for her, they have to let her go but you soon find out that its doesn't happen and it like a rollercoaster ride.  

You soon find out that Q is a person who keeps his secrets close to his chest and only gives them to people he trust (loves in his crazy way)

I gave this book my highest rating 5 wings because of the way it is written and how it pulls you into it right up to the last word.
