I know, I know I'm running a day behind! *Palms face* I've returned to work this week, after being off due to an op so I'm a little all over the place. But hey this means grand numero uno will be revealed Christmas day! So really it's all good, when you look at like that...
Now those of you who know and follow me know how completely obsessed I am with Tillie. t's so mothereffing crazy that it's not even healthy or in the relams of socially acceptable, and you know what? I don't care because my love for her is too much minions. The first book on the Hades Hangman series was a gamechanger for Tillie, because it was so outside her comfort zone I had to double check I had the right author. There's that saying 'you'll never know unless you try', and Tillie didn't try people, she freaking stormed the gates and took over the Dark Romance genre *applauds*. This was a raw, gut wrenchingly beautiful read and to this day it's engrained in my mind, because it left that big of an impact. Mae and Styx's story was beautiful broken perfection, one of those books that soeaks to you on a higher level and leaves you speechless. It went beyond being another Biker Romance, because the level of research Tillie put into this book is astounding. It boggles your mind, and really makes you take a step back and think. Those are the kinda books that stick with you, but more than that teach you the value of life.
I know I'm so deep. Now my full review can be found on the Reviews page HERE, even though I kinda just wrote a mini one... If you have yet to pick up Tillie's latest series, well you're in luc I have the amazing cover and synopsis below, with buy links of course!
Sinning never felt so good…
A fortuitous encounter.
A meeting that should never have happened.
Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever…
Salome knows only one way to live—under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence—the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free.
Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again.
River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life—he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six—much to his rivals’ delight.
Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away.
Styx has one rule in life—never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot… a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go…

I talk about her so much, you already know her. But even so I have a a pic, bio and links for you.
Tillie Cole is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother -- a farmer's daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.
And of course the highlights of my full review...
"Tillie went above and beyond for this book, and by the end I was utterly speechless. I had to ask myself, is this the same woman who gave me my sweet Rome?"
"This was a battle for survival, a fight for love and hope of a HEA. Mae's relationship with Styx was anything but easy, but damn my heart would skip a beat when they were together. You'd have to be blind to not see they were it for one another, and their chemistry was smoking hot."
"There's nothing more beautiful than seeing something so wounded and broken, gradually put back together one step at a time. Seriously minions Tillie out did herself, she holds nothing back with either character."
"This is not your typical Biker Romance, it has a unique edge to it that draw you in from page one. The characters are well developed, and easy to become lost in. You'll miss them once you finish, and well the entire novel is sure to give you a serious book hangover."
