Tears of Tess is a very dark read, very dark. If you have triggers with rape, non-con and dub-con, this book is not for you. But, I can admit that I couldn't resist reading this when a lot of GR friends talked about how f-ed up the characters were.
I have no idea what's going on in my brain during this upcoming holiday season, but I have been gravitating to some really dark reads over the last few weeks.
But, I digress. Tears of Tess is not for everyone. I will readily admit that there were times I had to put the story down for a bit to get over reading some really intense or disturbing scene, but I couldn't stay away for too long and ended up going right back to my kindle.
Needless to say, I'm glad Tess and Q found each other. It's interesting to me when a Sadist finds a masochist. I guess it just works out well for everyone that way. It just makes me nervous when two genuinely f'ed up people find each other. I worry about their psyches. I guess it's not for me to judge since I was completely taken in by their story.
I really look forward to reading what happens next in their story.
If you read this story and liked it, you may want to take a look at Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas as it had similar themes. If you liked Comfort Food, I think you will also enjoy Tears of Tess.
