Ego then stated that the one thing he did not expect was actually falling in love with Meredith Quill, and knowing that his love would get in the way of his goals, he decided to get rid of her once Peter was born, stating that "It broke my heart when I had to put that tumor in her head. Knowing that his son would never go along with his plans, Ego uses his powers to possess his son to absorb his power and starts activating the extensions.
Before his plans could go any further, Yondu and Rocket crash their ship directly on top of Ego, temporarily stunning him while the team freed Star-Lord and got away. After escaping, Yondu wished to leave the planet as soon as possible, however, Star-Lord stated that his father was too dangerous to be left alive and has Yondu fly down to the planet's core, as it is the source of all Ego's power and life.
The team tries to burn a hole in the core's protective layer, however, Ayesha and her Sovereign drones arrive and try to kill the Guardians again, at the same time, Ego manages to find them and uses his energy tentacles to try and kill them. Drax then manages to convince Mantis to use her powers to make Ego fall asleep, temporarily putting him out of the fight, although Mantis eventually ends up being knocked out during the chaos, allowing Ego to continue trying to destroy the Guardians.
Ego's physical form then surfaces underground and berates Star-Lord for trying to stop him, eventually managing to have all the Guardians at his mercy, starting to crush Rocket, Gamora, Groot, Nebula, and Yondu to death, drowning Drax in the sand and possessing Star-Lord yet again and beginning to re-spread his extensions, telling his son that there is nothing worth fighting for except power. After getting some inspirational words from Yondu, Star-Lord tells his father that he shouldn't have tried to hurt his friends or his mother, before harnessing his own Celestial powers, breaking free from his father's control.
Star-Lord then begins to mercilessly pummel his father into submission whilst simultaneously saving his friends and stopping the spread of the extensions. As Star-Lord and his father fight, Groot delivers Rocket's bomb to the center of the planet and arms it, allowing the team five minutes to escape, with Rocket regretfully having to leave Star-Lord behind in order to not risk the lives of his other friends.
Kiss Me, Daddy
Exhausted due to having fought each other at their full power, Star-Lord, too tired to use his powers, continues beating and holding down Ego in order to prevent him from ever getting to the core. Ego was mentioned when Thor explained his recent battle against his evil sister Hela , to which Peter relates this to his battle against Ego. Thor and the Guardians then soon learned that Thanos intends to collect all six Infinity Stones to wipe out half of the universe's populace, so they teamed up with the other Avengers to fight back against Thanos and his forces.
Unfortunately, despite the Avengers and Guardians managing to defeat the Black Order and the Outriders , Thanos managed to collect all six Infinity Stones and sends out a death wave. As a result, half of the universe's populace suffer Ego's fate as they disintegrate to their deaths; even Peter and the Guardians except for Rocket end up being dissolved away from existence while a triumphant Thanos oversees a sunrise from another planet. However, five years later, the surviving Avengers traveled back in time to retrieve the Infinity Stones and use them to reverse the death wave before wiping Thanos and his remaining forces from existence.
Ego initially appears to be very sympathetic and kind, a loving father and lover, but as his true intentions are revealed, the monster inside him comes to the light. He is a very violent, selfish, cold, dangerous, and horrifyingly ruthless monster, being one of the most vicious and dangerous villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far, and also the one with the most victims in one film, surpassing the atrocities caused by Ronan who was the most violent enemy the Guardians faced before the second film.
He is shown to have a huge amount of power and doesn't care about killing his own children; he also believes his form and intelligence is the only one that should rule the galaxy. This stemmed from his disillusionment over life he encountered, which he considered inferior and not reached his standard of species perfection, which made him consider expanding his own power by transforming the galaxy into extensions of himself and his progeny as the only meaning of his eternal life. Ego also strongly believes that friends, family or emotional connections are worth little compared to his end goal of The Expansion as well as the fact that unlike the Celestials, they will die out eventually.
As a master manipulator, he usually presented himself as a charming and respectable person, and hides his true nature by acting welcoming, friendly, and even humble, such as calling his planet no smaller than Earth's moon and stating himself as a god "with a small g" and other friendly facades.

When Ego met with the women he impregnated from different planets, such as Meredith Quill, he came off as an otherworldly traveler who only wishes to learn more about other species. However, he later describes himself as alternately "the sailor" and "the sea" from a song Peter's mother loved, demonstrating Ego's belief that he is the only thing that matters in the universe, at least from his perspective As well as further setting himself up as a kind of evil counterpart to his son, taking Peter's love of oldies music and turning it into a justification for his evil.
Upon meeting with the Guardians of the Galaxy and his son, Peter Quill, he posed as a cocky albeit wise father, sharing Quill's sense of humor and love of pop culture references to lull him into a false sense of security and eventually unlock his Celestial abilities. Even with his manipulative and charismatic attitude, his belief of universal cleansing was too powerful to hide completely, as Yondu Udonta ruthlessly remembers Ego as a "jackass" when he was hired by him.
Though not fully aware with how apocalyptic Ego can be, Yondu knows that bad things will happen to Quill had he reunited with his father, prompting him to adopt him as his son instead of giving him to Ego. Despite his egocentricity, insanity, and ruthless belief of universal cleansing, Ego genuinely fell in love with Earthling Meredith Quill. He went to visit her three times until it got in the way of his plans to transform the universe, so he "reluctantly" put a tumor within her brain to kill her. Ego also had a degree of fondness for Quill because he was a Celestial like him thus could help with his plan.
Ego also still cared for his son before his betrayal, and instead of immediately taking his son's energy the first chance he had, preferred to get to know his son and openly told him that he wanted to rule the universe together and didn't want to live alone, until Quill turned against him and forced his hand.

Sadly, this book didn't live up to expectations. Kiss Me, Daddy was not my tastes. Insta-love, daddy stuff introduced too quickly, miscommunications I struggled with the pace and the structure of the story.
I think there were a lot of issues that made for a very mediocre reading experience. I've only read one other book by this author, I'm a fan of certain kinds of kink, and daddy kink ranks right up there among my BDSM faves, so I had high hopes for Kiss Me, Daddy. I've only read one other book by this author, and though I enjoyed that one, I don't know if I'd be so eager to read Quinn Ward again. Maybe this author needs a better editor or some more betas to guide them because there were some strange transitions and time skips that made for an awkward reading experience.
I think the story was cute, but it didn't hit kinky nirvana for me. I wanted more. View all 4 comments. Mar 26, Cadiva rated it liked it. I'm not sure what happened here. I've enjoyed each of the books in the series which this one spins off from but something about this just didn't really work for me.
I liked both characters individually but each time they slipped into the kink, I really didn't feel the connection at all. A lot of the time it just seemed like a whole load of dirty talkin I'm not sure what happened here. A lot of the time it just seemed like a whole load of dirty talking and then the narrative would jump to some time after the event. Unusually for this author, I felt a lot was being told about what was going on rather than me being shown through their actions and dialogue. On a positive note, I liked the family set up, I liked that there was no drama with the ex-wife and their year-old and Andy's supporting siblings.
And if the set up for book two concerns the characters we saw at the end, then I'm totally on board as they were intriguing. ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review. Mar 21, Kirstin rated it liked it. I was quite surprised when I first started this book at how much I was instantly taken in by the writing and the characters.
