Publisher's Summary

"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?

    "Fantastic as Audio"

    Holy Moly Guacamole! This had me gripped from the first page! Intense doesn't even begin to describe this book. From the get go I had my ideas as to how this book should pan out, I had so many theories. I literally had no clue, everything I presumed, guessed, thought I knew was all so far from the actual plot that I found it completely and utterly refreshing. I always pride myself on seeing the outcome of books, I couldn't have been more wrong. This book is dark and deals with some extremely sensitive issues, (kidnapping, sex slaves, drugs, rape to name but a few), any bad thing you can think of, it happens. That being said it has to go down as one of my favourite reads this year. The synopsis gives you all the plot details, I just want to say, if you like dark this is a must read, the characters are perfection, the story beautifully written. Full five stars.

    Story
    "Powerful, so very dark.....simply incredible!"
    What did you like most about Tears of Tess?

    It is a topic covering one of the darkest, worst sides of humanity but here is also a dark love story of accepting deep desires, fighting yet coming to terms with wants and needs that humiliate, cause shame whilst at the same time allow the lead roles to live life in full colour for the very first time. It is not twisted to love such a story even though the socially acceptable response is probably to be disgusted by it, there is a little darkness in all of us!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I adore both the main characters. Tess struggles with her dark feelings and Q is burdened with guilt. Both are steeped in shame yet find acceptance in each other in addition to a deep connection that has always been lacking from their lives.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

    The narrators are amazing!!!!! The accent provided by Q (Jacob Morgan) is so wonderfully sexy, wow...wet pants all round; sorry to be crude but to have a lover speak to you with that voice and accent would be enough to ignite anyone's knickers!!!! It is not often that I comment on the narrators but I really feel that the two in this case helped make this story the success in audio format that it is. Without being patronizing...you both did an incredible job. Thank you.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were many reactions to this book, all powerful. The hope and despair sweep you along as do Q and Tess's feeling of shame and guilt. It is an exceptional story.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of the books to start with and thought that they were incredible but to see them in audio format...well, I had to buy. The rest of her books are equally as enjoyable. All are dark in nature but Pepper Winters is a truly gifted author. You will not be disappointed.Please invest but don't be sorry if you miss appointments as you are too caught up in their story!!! Be warned!!! :)

    "Dark & Twisty!"

    I'm on the fence on this one, parts were 4 stars and parts were 3 stars so I'm giving 3.5 stars.

    I liked the beginning of this book a lot. I was glued to it in the beginning but then about 1/2 though I started to lose interest then towards the end I was back glued to it again. I liked the characters and their background and history. This is one of those books that I'm having a hard time reviewing without giving spoilers and It's weird to say I liked specific things because of the non-consent thing but I will say that Q, when he lost himself, was hot! The narration was good but the main character was from Australia and didn't have an accent. I think accent should have been used.

    Story
    "TRULY A TWISTED LOVE AFFAIR!"
    Would you listen to Tears of Tess again? Why?

    IDK....This is a sick and twisted story...I am curious for book 2 though...


    What did you like best about this story?

    WOW...I dont know that this is a story you can say you like...its a bit overwhelming...its very dark...and well written...and the concept is just brutal..did I like this story? NO..do I like the book and the performance? YES!


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I felt for Tess the whole time...she is very strong willed...and I probably would have really hated this dom/sub relationship if it wouldn't have been Tess who really wanted this...and that is how true dom/sub relationships work.


    Any additional comments?

    ** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

    This book was a struggle for me emotionally...I have a hard time with dom/sub forced relationships...this is a brutal story of human trafficking and forced slavery....and if you can not wrap your mind around how some people like pain, crave pain and want pain in there sex lives, and that that is the only way they are satisfied, you do not need to listen to this book!

    Tess has always been missing something, she has dark fantasies and is not truly happy with her sweet boyfriend Brax, she also has parental issues and has never really felt good enough, or truly loved. Her and Brax take a vacation in Mexico and it all goes to hell, I mean literal hell...Tess is kidnapped and sold like property...she just so happens to end up in France with the dark and very sinister Q! Both these people are really messed up...he sees the fight in her, her intelligence, her passion and it is on!

    I had to review my feelings on this book several times, and although I really did like this book, and I want #2 asap...I dont like stories like this on the norm..I know a lot about this lifestyle...the extreme BDSM lifestyle and I probably would not have finished this book if I could not have clearly saw that Tess wanted this, needed this...she was actually more in control of this situation than Q ever really was, and this is what it took for both of them to be set free somehow...it is definitely a sick sick sick and twisted world out there...and don't just think this kind of stuff happens only in fiction, because you are sadly mistaken if you do!

    On the narration I think Hannah was ok, but the wrong choice for this book, and why didn't she have an Australian accent, if Tess was from Australia? Jacob was awesome!

    THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR WIMPS, DON'T EVEN TRY IT IF YOU CANT HANDLE EXTREME BDSM, IF SO...GO FOR IT YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

    WELL WORTH YOUR TIME AND A CREDIT, I AM TRULY BLOWN AWAY!

    "Tears of Tess"

    This is absolutely the most outstanding book I have ever read in the BDSM genre. I loved Tess' strength. No matter what was dished out she was up for it. As intense as was the pain and pleasure the search to understand was even better.
    I loved this book.

    Story
    "What a Trip..."

    Pepper Winters takes the reader on one woman's horrific journey. While her experiences tests every bit of her inner strength, they also allow her to actualize her deepest desires. The man whom she perceives as a monster, who twists her mind, and wrecks her sanity causes her to question everything she knows about herself.

    This rollercoaster story will cause you to question. The narrators convey the story beautifully. I especially liked the French singing.

    Enthralling, ensnared, "esclave" ...........
    Powerful gripping dark story. I usually don't read or listen to stories that are dark, but the reviews piqued my interest. The best spent credit I ever used. The best audiobook performance I've ever had the pleasure of listening to and a story so well written- that it will stay with me always.

    "Immediately Hooked! Outstanding performance!"

    Survival, instinct, ownership, dominance, submission, acceptance – each breathing life into the next. Light piercing its way into darkness.

    The writing by Pepper Winters makes all your senses come alive. Along with the beautiful narration, the story brought to life color, sound, touch, smell and taste. I felt transported while listening, a witness to each experience at every location. Winters puts you right in the middle of it.

    I look forward to listening to the entire Monsters in the Dark series. Pepper Winters is truly a gifted author.

    Duel narrations by Hannah Belle and Jacob Morgan were outstanding! They are perfectly suited and gave an amazing performance. I felt the pleasure, pain, happiness and sorrow in every inflection. I look forward to listening to more from this duo.
