"For fractured souls are like magnets.Pages: 462
Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…"
Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in. Free from endless years of physical and mental torment.
At age twenty-one, the timid and shy Maddie is content to live within the confines of her new home—safe from the outside world, safe from harm and, strangely, protected by the Hangmen’s most volatile member; the heavily pierced and tattooed, Flame.
The man who ceaselessly watches over her with his midnight dark and searing eyes. The man who protects her with a breath-taking intensity. And the man who stirs something deep within her numbed heart.
But when circumstances conspire for Flame to need HER help, Maddie bravely risks it all for the broken man who has captivated her fragile soul.
The Hangmen’s most infamous member, Flame, is ruled by one thing—anger. Plagued by haunting demons from his past, an all-consuming rage, and isolated by an abhorrent hatred of being touched, Flame's days are filled with suffocating darkness, pierced only by a single ray of light—Maddie. The shy, beautiful woman he cannot purge from his thoughts. The woman he has an overwhelming need to possess…
... the only person who has ever been able to touch him.
Flame’s mission in life is to protect Maddie, to keep her safe. Until a trigger from his troubled past sends him spiraling into madness, trapping him in the deepest recesses of his disturbed mind.
His Hangmen brothers fear that Flame is beyond saving.
His only hope of salvation: Maddie and her healing light.

“For fractured souls are like magnets.
Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…..”
This book was breathtaking. Absolute perfection. And heart wrenching. I loved every single moment.
I want to start by mentioning that Tillie Cole is a clever woman who knows her stuff. She has studied underground, taboo and less-than-the-norm cultures and societies and when she writes about these subjects, she is spot on. Many times it seems odd or farfetched because it isn’t what we recognize, but when it comes to a Cole novel, you can trust that it is accurate.
In this third installment of the Hades Hangmen we FINALLY get Flame’s story. And let me tell you, it was worth the wait. He is the epitome of the tortured soul. His character is perfectly written. It was heartbreaking to learn of his pain, but at the same time, I needed to know more.
Maddie is as equally damaged, but because of that, she understood his pain. She was able to show the patience that he needed in order to heal. Their love was EPIC. Astounding. I had so many feels as read this book that I cannot even begin to list them.
“She was special to me. She was everything. She was all I thought about, day and night. I had to be underneath her window just to be near her.”
We knew their story would be great, but we also had to deal with club business. Let’s face it. We have a lot of bad guys out to get the Hangmen. This storyline was just as exciting and masterfully designed. There was thill and mystery. Suspense and surprises. Hot damn! Do I love this series!
I don’t want to give away too much. Being the third book in the series, the world building and character development is well established. This men and women are in it deep and we are dying to know what happens next.
I give this book 5 flame-lovin’ stars and pair it with a Flaming Sambuca
