Spotlight, Teasers, Excerpt & Review: Je suis à toi (Monsters in the Dark #3.5) by Pepper Winters

Book Blurb & Info

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.

“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
 Je Suis A Toi by Pepper Winters!


Book Excerpt

“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.


Toot's Review

Je Suis à Toi (Monsters in the Dark #4) by Pepper Winters is her newest addition to the series that launched her into superstardom, Monsters in the Dark. Her original dark erotica series really delved deep into human trafficking and all its ugliness then through her artistry as an author, twisted it into a beautifully flawed romance with a HFN (happily for now). The characters have become so bellowed by fans that Pepper has added a few glimpses into the life of these two as they grow and carve out their forever HEA and Je Suis à Toi does just that, it’s a “where are they now”/epilogue/ love letter to fans /next chapter in their life type of book. [Is there the super-hot-animalistic-beasty-drawing blood-BDSM sex scenes that we love from Q and Tess? Oh hellz yeah!!! Is there any outside danger to them? No not really. Are the two main characters getting in their own way blocking their HEA? Yep!
Ok enough with the Q&A (see what I did there? Q…get it? *wink wink* *audience groan*). Fine, fine, let’s get to a brief synopsis…..
So we find the two characters, Q & Tess a few years later and everything is right in their world except Q is hiding something from Tess and she wants to know what it is. This secret is tearing Q apart and because he’s a beast of a man, sharing his feelings is not in his wheelhouse. He has done something to Tess and she has no idea. Can the two overcome his secret? Can they move on from this or are they doomed to a life without spice and sentenced to be vanilla forever??? *theatrical soap opera music*
All kidding aside, it was wonderful revisiting these two characters and getting a glimpse into their lives again. We’ve seen Tess sold into slavery, we’ve seen Q buy her, we’ve watched as they fell in love, we’ve seen him loose her then get her back only to lose her again and get her back again. We’ve watched them get married/collared and now with Je Suis à Toi, they will struggle to take the next step in their lives together forever cementing their relationship.
As always, a wonderful 5 star read for fans of the series. Not sure it would be a good standalone as the characters are well established in previous books with quiet a history but I always recommend Pepper and any of her books!
