4.5 Stars for Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters

A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.

“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?

4.5 Stars

I finally gave in and read this book after hearing so much about it. I was pleasantly surprised. It was very well written and dark and sexy all at the same time.

Tess puts up with so much in this book. My heart bleeds for her! Not only is she put through situations that are hard and terror inducing, she is also on a path of self discovery that she finds it hard to accept.

There is a constant element of suspense in waiting to see what Q is going to do with her and what it is about his past and personality that makes him so self loathing.

The only thing that made this not quite a 5 star book for me is that there is elements that I would like to have had be further developed, then again some of them may be expanded upon in the next book in the series so I didn't want to close off the possibility that answers are coming in the next installment.
