Review: I DO, BABE by Tillie Cole

I Do, Babe (Hades Hangmen, #5.5)


Connected since childhood.
Two souls: one dark and one pure.
Bracing to take the greatest step of all.
River ‘Styx’ Nash loves his woman. Ever since he met Mae at the fence of the cult that had kept her captive as a child, he has never loved anyone else. He loves her black hair, her pale skin and of course, her ice-blue ‘wolf eyes’.
Since Mae came crashing back into his life, his only wish has been to marry her; finally to make her his wife. But now the wedding is booked, and only weeks from forever having Mae by his side, a lifelong problem is plaguing him.
He wants to marry her; he has never wanted anything more . . .
. . . if only he could speak the words and declare it to the world.
Salome ‘Mae’ Nash’s life had been filled with heartache and pain . . . until, at age eight, she met a strange dark-haired boy from the outside world. Years later, and reunited with her great love, Mae is ready to solder her heart to his. Finally, Mae is getting ready to marry her man. But her fiancé has become withdrawn. Something is deeply troubling him.
But Mae has no idea what.
Or what to do to help.
Can Styx open up and conquer his deepest pain? Or will the infamous Hangmen Mute allow his fears to overcome his love for Mae and watch their much-anticipated wedding crumble to dust?

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

***I Do, Babe: A Novella (Hades Hangmen #5.5) is to be read AFTER Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen #5)***

I loved this book. This book gave us exactly what we’ve been waiting for since book 1. I feel like I’ve witnessed the wedding of the century. I am so invested in these characters. And Tillie Cole didn’t disappoint. Mae was the same strong,  sweetheart we fell in love with. While Styx was the ultimate alpha male, who deals with a very humbling issue. Mae was right there loving him unconditionally.  My heart broke for him. Mae and Styx will forever be one of my favorite couples. I love all the couples in this series, but nothing tops the brotherly love. The love between Styx and Kai was palpable. I love them. Thanks Tillie for inviting us to the wedding! Can’t wait to revisit this world!

I love Styx and Mae, and I am so glad to finally see them get married. They have spent so much of their time together saving everyone that it was good to see them focus on themselves and each other again. Mae and Styx have such an undeniable connection. We thought Styx was willing to do anything for his woman, but now we know!! He pushed past his boundaries and limitations to show Mae and the world how much he loved her. Styx and Kai were so adorable in this book. The brotherly love between the brothers in this MC is so sweet. The juxtaposition of these men in this outlaw MC with the love that they have for each other and their women is so unexpected, but Tillie Cole’s writing makes it totally believable and relatable. So excited for what’s to come from this MC!!
