Wow! What an emotionally charged story!
I fell in love with the story and look forward to listening to the rest of the series; however, this was one of the darkest MC's I've listened too so far. It may not be for everyone.
Tillie Cole did an amazing job creating a heart wrenching story that captures the essence of the MC world, and the horrors of a depraved fanatical religious cult. Told from two POV's from different worlds, we follow the characters as they are reunited by chance, deal with the horrors from their past, hang on to each other with everything they have, and what one man will do to keep the love of his life.
Styx's whole life has revolved around the Hades Hangman MC. This club doesn't hold back, it's tough, crude, does illegal activities, and all the sex, drinking, and killing has shaped Styx's into one of the toughest MC's Prez. Due to a speech impediment, he's only been able to talk to three people, his dad, best friend and the young girl he's been obsessed with every since their unexpected meeting years ago. Because he doesn't talk around others, he's earned the scary reputation as the Hangman's Mute.
Mae was raised by a fanatical religious group, and due to her beauty, she was deemed a "cursed." As one of the cursed, it was believed they would more than likely sway a man from their righteous path. Due to these wrapped views, she suffered many horrors from an early age. Fearing for her life, she made a desperate attempt to escape, and was hurt badly. Barely alive, she found herself at the Hades Hangman's MC. Recognizing each other from years ago, a bound between Mae and Styx starts to grow. Styx would do anything to protect Mae, and she's never felt safe except with Styx.
While the journey for these characters was hard, intense and at times not easy to listen too, I found myself totally engrossed and unable to stop listening. The characters and plot were well thought out, developed, and had twist all through the story. This was one of the best MC's I've listened too; however, I have to warn you, it's dark, unapologetic, full of bad language, and has sexual abuse, but it's a story that will stick with you well after you finished it.
J.F. Harding and Annie Green's performance was AWESOME. Due to one of the main characters, this was not an easy story to narrate, but this dual nailed it. They really brought this story to life!
Definitely worth a credit!

This MC romance is definitely hard core. Women are bitches, there are club whores, there's gun running, torture and murder. Unfortunately, that's not the worst of it.There is also a look into a religious cult that santions rape of 8 yr old girls. If you are sensitive or gave triggers, this isn't for you. That being said, there are also some wonderful characters that develop beautifully throughout the plot. The thesis seems to be that the human soul can overcome unbelievable adversity. Worth a credit, in my book.

okay it's not the best bit of writing ever, and it did make me laugh at points unintentionally due to the cheesy writing, but I liked it full of sex and fighting. great!
