Series: Monsters in the Dark #3
Release Date: June 3, 2014
My Rating: 5+ Stars
Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he's still a monster inside.
After surviving the darkness, a new dawn has begun. Twisted Together wades through black to grey, chasing the light of true love to banish the shadows forever.
Pain is a requirement, connection a necessity. But ultimately Q and Tess must face their demons, before they can embrace their future.
I still need time to recuperate from this book. Without fail Ms. Winters blew my ever loving mind AGAIN! With Q and Tess and their trials, struggles, and heartache. It was utterly overwhelming. This is a dark, very dark, erotic romance. BUT there are those moments where Tess and Q just are. They're simply a couple in love. Those moments make any uneasiness you would ever feel while reading this series seem inconsequential. This book is everything. It puts me out of my comfort zone, forces me into a nitty gritty relationship. Most of all, it takes me out of my own head and thoughts and pushes me into Tess' and Q's. Which in my opinion is the ultimate achievement of the best books out there.
Q and Tess are back. They're home. No one is chasing them. The monsters are gone... except their own. The will fight, relive, rehash, love and do just about anything to exorcise the demons that have taken Tess away. She may be there physically, but mentally she can't do it. She can't be what Q needs, or what she, herself, needs. From broken and battered to whole and alive. These two continue on this screwy journey. They've never been whole at the same time. They'll learn to rid their lives of obstacles and not stand in their own way of happiness. It's trial and error. Neither knows what will work. And that's where you hit mid way through the book. Then it's a whole new ball game. If it were possible for me to love these characters even more it happens in the last half of this book. They become one. Q and Tess will be faced with yet another trial, but this one... Well this one may just not have the happy ending we all wanted it to.
This book is hard for me to describe in words. I tried. All I can say is "You just have to read it." It won't be easy, but it will damn sure be worth it. The ultimate escape with the best characters and the most twisted, yet fulfilling storyline. Ms. Winters will make you work for it. She gives zero excuses for Q and Tess. They are who they are. No changing them or making miraculous last minute turnabouts. I don't think I've ever read a couple that was more deserving of a HEA. Of course, back on that twisty note, you never know what Ms. Winters will lay out for her characters. Will it end leaving you satisfied, dumbfounded, or in complete awe of Q and Tess' love? That's for you to find out. This is one ending I refuse to spoil. All I can say is every thing felt right and at peace. I beg of you pick up this series, or book if you're all caught up. It's definitely one for my book shelf, and lord knows there's limited space on there by now :)
