BOOK: It Ain’t Me, Babe (Hades Hangmen #1) by Tillie Cole
My Rating: 3-31/2 stars
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, Harley’s, 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…
My THOUGHTS ABOUT IT
This book was one that I really wanted to read , the Blurb was interesting and the reviews were great, but for me was a 3 to 3 and 1/2 stars
I mean it was very good, don’t get me wrong !!! it´s just not as great as I thought it was going to be… i loved the previous Tillie cole’s books so maybe I was expecting a lot more sweetness ( my bad!)
The reviews for these one are so great that I think that maybe my problem is that this is the first book with biker theme that I have ever read , so maybe it will take a while to get used to this kind of story line.
I do have to say that the story was maybe a bit slow in the beginning but , god!!! the religious theme was hard to read ,it feel raw , and it was dificult, I mean the fact that these are things that actually do happen to people is very disturbing to me.
The love story was very nice, very passionate and the male character was as alpha as they come, it may have been a little to quick to develop, but it was hot nonetheless, the steam factor was HIGH!!IT WAS VERY STEAMY…
“It’s me babe… Ain’t no other man for you… but me.
But I do feel that given the religious background of the protagonist she was kind of to quick to give in to the background and all the sexual activities that where on display.
“We were always fated to be together. He is my everything. He is my entire world…
…Styx is my salvation.”
all in all i find it t be a GOOD read, just not the GREAT! read that I was expecting.
