Souls Unfractured by Tillie Cole -Review

🌟🌟🌟🌟 Torturous Soul Stars

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.

Just… free…

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.

Therapy may be needed after this reading; this book is not for the faint of heart. Tillie Cole once again touches subjects that make you ache for these characters. She also gives us glimpses of her other characters that will be getting their own novels as well. Tillie doesn’t disappoint, she will make you feel every emotion within you.

“We are Flame and Maddie. And we have survived.”

Souls Unfractured is the third book in the Hades Hangmen Series, following Maddie and Flame, the surrounding plots are a continuation of It Ain’t Me, Babe and Heart Recaptured.

“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 highly recommend this book as well as the Hades Hangmen series. Keep a look out for Prophet Cain/Rider’s book, Deep Redemption, which will be releasing July 12th 2017.

YOU by Caroline Kepnes -Review

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Engine Number Nine Stars

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

We’re currently in an “everythingship” with YOU by Caroline Kepnes, an absolutely brilliant, well-written book. The story is told from the perspective of anti-hero Joe Goldberg. He’s obsessive, charming and manipulative…and we couldn’t help but like the guy and cheer for him.

“The problem with books is that they end.”

The object of his affection, Guinevere Beck, is an attention-seeking narcissist. But to Joe, Beck was perfect, everything he was looking for. But is the Beck he sees the real Beck or just another role she’s playing in one of her manipulative games?

“Happiness is believing that you’re gonna be happy. It’s hope.”

The pop culture references Kepnes uses throughout the book really set it apart and make it special. They intrigued us and had us running to our bookshelves or turning to YouTube every time  Joe would drop one of these gems.

“If you knew what I went through to get into your home, that I messed up my back trying to know you, inside and out, you’d judge me for it.”

YOU is not a book for everyone. Joe will have you feeling a bit unsettled, constantly looking over your shoulder. You never know who may be watching.

“You are a woman and I am a man and we belong in the dark together.”
