“I thought you said, ‘it ain’t you who’s meant for me’?”
“Oh it’s me, babe… Ain’t no other man for you… but me.”
I am kicking myself because I took way too long to read this! It ain’t me, babe is dark and gritty. It isn’t for everyone. I’m not going to lie, reading about what Mae and her sisters went through was disturbing and heartbreaking. But even with all the dark themes, there was enough romance and humor to make it that much more enjoyable!
Styx is the prez of the Hades Hangmen MC. He’s also known as ‘the Hangmen mute.’ Styx and Mae meet when they’re just kids. Styx is immediately drawn to her long black hair and blue wolf like eyes. Years pass, him trying to find her again, but each time he fails. Eventually he gives up, assuming he will never see her again. Not once does he ever forget her. His first kiss. The third person he chose to speak to. The girl with the wolf eyes.
Their paths cross again when Mae is found bleeding to death on his club property after she has run away from the religious ‘cult’ she was raised in. Instantly Styx recognizes her and is relieved to have finally found her after all these years.
“I-i-if you c-can hear m-me, p-p-pull through. W-wake the f-f-fuck up. I’ve b-been w-waiting on you coming back to me for f-f-fifteen fuckin’ years. No d-dying on m-me now, you hear me?”
Styx is a total alpha male. He’s completely protective and possessive of Mae the minute he sees her again. He’s rough and edgy but with Mae, gentle and caring. The things she endured as a child was devastating. Their worlds are entirely different yet they do everything they can to make it work.
We were alway fated to be together. He is my everything. He is my entire world…
…Styx is my salvation.
I could go on and on about how much I loved this but I don’t want to bore anyone to death. I’m just going to recommend you read the book if you’ve yet to read it because you are seriously missing out, people!
