*****FIVE STARS*****
{BR With Dee}

“I used to wonder how two people – one broken girl, and one broken boy – could ever move on from their dark and tortured pasts. But now I know. Together, that’s how. They fight their way through… together.”

I LOVE the Hades Hangmen series!! I mean FREAKING LOVE it!!! Since book one I have been intrigued by the dynamics between Flame and Maddie! What I love about this series is that even though each book is about a different couple, all of these characters are very much a part of the story throughout the series. So when we get to their book, we already have a vested interest in the characters. Tillie kept our interests piqued throughout the first two books where Flame and Maddie were concerned. I just knew this was going to be a very heartbreaking journey and I was ready for the challenge.

Flame and Maddie both have had the most horrific childhoods. We knew what Maddie’s past had entailed but could only guess as to what made Flame the way he was. So full of anger. Unable to be touched by another human being. Not having the ability to hold a normal conversation with anyone, and yet he is drawn to Maddie. Ever since the day the Hades Hangmen rescued her from the cult, Flame has made it his sole responsibility to keep watch over and protect Maddie.

Something traumatic happens that triggers Flame to have an intense flashback and ultimately he loses what little sanity he had left. Maddie is the only one who is able to reach Flame. She proved to be quite a strong heroine. This little one , has to be the bravest woman in the entire series. She saw past all the crazy and found the beauty that was within Flame. He may have rescued her from the cult and the ghosts from her past, but she also saved him from the chains that tied him to his painful childhood.

I found myself crying so much while reading this one. Together, Flame and Maddie have endured things when they were young children that were so horrific I actually wished that I could jump into the story and go a little Hannibal Lecter on some asses!!! Ms Cole definitely went a little easier on us in this installment than she did in book two. Thank God because I don’t think my heart could have handled that level of darkness again, and I would have considered it a bit of overkill to put these characters through additional turmoil.

The romance was pretty beautiful and had an air of innocence. There definitely was some steam but not like in the previous installments and honestly I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Flame and Maddie were really experiencing sex in a healthy and loving way for the first time. It was a miracle that they could experience beauty in something that used to be the cause of pain and darkness.

This is definitely my favorite in the Hades Hangmen series so far! I am quite curious to see what Tillie Cole has in store for us in Cain/Rider’s book. I read someone’s predictions on Facebook about who his love interest will be and BOY WOULD I LOVE THAT!!!! I never even thought it a possibility but I truly hope that Ms Cole has that same idea running through her talented mind!!

I can’t say enough about this series. I would definitely recommend it, but warn you that you need a buddy reader to help you get through some of the rough parts. This is one hell of an AMAZING story!! Don’t pass this one up!!!

Go on and One Click if you haven’t already!!
