“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!
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.

How much do I love this book? OMG!!! Tess and Q don’t disappoint in this novella. I had one gripe with this book…it was wayyyyyy tooooo short!!! I wanted more!! I loved being inside Q’s head, even though he is frustrating as ever!!!
This short installment of their lives revolves around a secret. Not so much a secret, more of a desire. A desire he is keeping a secret. And he is keeping this desire a secret because only a man like Q could have such skewed reasons…. It is hard to watch Q struggling with this as a reader because you don’t know what the desire/secret is until almost the end. Tess can feel he is hiding something and ever so carefully tries to get it out of him in ways only Tess can do.
It is so much fun and HOT to read the push and pull between these two once again and she tries to coax out what is troubling Q. Tess works her magic and is nothing short of HOT.
Can Tess get out of Q his secret? Will they be able to work through it or will this be the thing that finally tears them apart? Can Tess comply with yet another desire of Q’s? All of these questions are answered by the end of this book. It does not disappoint!! I didn’t realize how much I missed these characters until I read this book and I so hope there will be more in the future!!
“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.
