[Book Review] Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters

Tears of Tess (Tears of Tess, #1)Tears of Tess
Pepper Winters
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?

Her parents always thought of her as a mistake and only her boyfriend Brax can feel her loved and safe. But she wished that things would be better, hotter. & it’s not like she didn’t enjoy their regular missionary position – she just wanted him to slam her against the wall and take her right there and then.

When Brax suprises her with a vacation to Mexico, she knows that this is what she needs to feel normal. Maybe when they are out for a vacation, they finally have that spark that will make Tess feel like she has everything. But vacation doesn’t go the way that she expected and she is kidnapped. Losing hope is not an option and she wants to fight. Fight for her life, for her dignity and her name. Being in Q’s possession was terrifying but her body betrayed her. 

All I can say is wow. This has definitely been a crazy read and I had to take few breaks from reading because my emotions could not handle the story. I didn’t think that the story was very dark, there were just a lot of emotions that were involved and the whole concept of abuse is very overwhelming. The sex scenes were definitely hot and yes, they made me blush a couple of times. This is the book that give me hangover. FINALLY! A book that made me crazy. I’m still trying to get over it. Tess was strong and her attempt to stay alive and fight whatever came her way was absolutely insane.
