Driven by his vendetta against his father, Q swore a vow he would never touch a slave. Instead, he spent a lifetime battling dark urges, the need to hurt, and threw himself into saving broken birds. Dedicating his home and fortune to fix the wrongs of others.
After surviving everything life threw at her, Tess emerged from the ashes as a woman with fire and spirit. Her past didn’t break her, no matter how much Q tried, and in a twist of fate, she broke him. Together, they fixed each other.
Tess is his completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and that’s just what he’ll do.
He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.

**please note if you haven't read book 1 stop reading now this review now. **
This book was a roller coaster of emotions. I knew Tess and Q's life wasn't sunshine/roses but my goodness. I honestly don't know where to even begin with this one. This one starts basically where book 1 ended. Tess comes back to Q and their new life begins. Trust me it was rocky in the beginning and it was a rocky path throughout.
The chemistry between Tess and Q is still steaming hot. Their love for each other is an amazing read and the lengthens they go to to protect one another was on another level. Things take a turn in this one when Tess is kidnapped by our favorite criminals from book 1. She isn't just kidnapped they break her and it's heartbreaking to read what she endured. Q is like a wild animal during this. He is willing to move heaven and earth to find her but will he be to late?
After tess was rescued the story of her recovery was a tough read. She was broken and Q right along with her. She was there physically but her most powerful tool, her mind was left to question. Tess /Q 'a mental/emotional journey and ok physical as well was an amazing read. Mrs. Winters great job. You truly have once again outdone yourself with this one!
