Yes, but better read in order


A broken woman.
A damaged man.
A free spirit intent on saving them both.

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to.
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose.
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it.
Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts.
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive.
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.

Dark Contemporary MFM Romance. Contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. Over 18’s only.

Val’s Review

3.5 – 3.75 Stars

I love Tillie Cole and I adore this series.

Hush and Cowboy were amazing together in this one and I really liked Sia too.

However, I must say that it was weird reading a book where one of the love interests is referred to as “Val” sometimes and another as “Sia.” Obviously, Val is MY name and one of my nieces is named Sia.

It happens to us all at one point or another, I would imagine.
There are only so many names out there and all that jazz.

Not that big a deal, I just thought it was funny.
Moving on.


This book.

I truly did enjoy it, BUT…

Not gonna lie, I didn’t love this one as much as I have loved past series offerings.

I’m not sure if that had to do with the tripod of a relationship we had here (although I don’t think that’s it) or if I just felt like I didn’t truly get to know the characters as much as I would have liked to.

I do know that we didn’t get as much MC as I would have liked in this MC book.

I felt like these three characters kind of existed on their own separate little island and just weren’t that attached to the MC in general. Most of the scenes occur on Sia’s ranch or in flashback.

Even though Cowboy and Hush are technically MC brothers, they just didn’t really have as much interaction with the Hangmen.

But it’s all good.

Fans of the series will definitely enjoy this one, so long as they don’t mind the aforementioned tripod.

I’m definitely looking forward to the next book. I think it’s supposed to be Tanner’s story.

I also hope that we get some more “check-in” time with some of our previous characters, another thing that I felt was missing from this book.

But all in all, a solid read and a solid addition to the series.
