ARC: Crux Untamed by Tillie Cole


A broken woman.
A damaged man.
A free spirit intent on saving them both.

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to.
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose.
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it.
Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts.
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive.
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.

Dark Contemporary MFM Romance. Contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. Over 18’s only

Tillie Cole does it again! Does what, you wonder? She ripped my heart out, made me cry, and put me back together again. I don’t know what to say or where to begin. Lets start with the Hangmen themselves. Every time I read one of these books, I’m in awe of the brotherly love every single time. Ky and Styx, AK, Viking, and Flame they all did me in. I cried over their bonds and friendships. But Cowboy and Hush were on another level.  I could have sworn I heard my heart cracking at some points. Cowboy and Hush’s friendship has been in question for years. I was so excited to get the answers, but I never could have imagined what their history entailed. Cowboy and Hush broke me. Add Sia to the mix and this book had ugly cry written all over it. Sia and Hush were so broken and lonely, but Cowboy gave them everything they needed. Cowboy, Hush, and Sia definitely had a love worth fighting for. I can’t believe this was the 6th installment because this series continues to surprise me. Its so freaking good!!!!!!!! #HangmenHarem

This story broke my heart and then healed me completely. It is unbelievable that there are so many books in this series and not only has it not gotten dry, but it actually has me excited for the next installment. This club is truly a family. The boys don’t always get along, but when one is in trouble, they all ride in support. The bond between Cowboy and Hush was beyond any of the brotherly bins we’ve seen this far. They were truly inseparable. Hush was so broken, and at times Cowboy was the only thing holding him together. It was such an odd relationship with Hush being extremely intense and Cowboy being equally laid back. But they worked. When Sia joined their duo, Hush made it as hard as Cowboy made it easy. Somehow, through all the bs they made it work. As usual, the underlying theme of love conquering all was there, but more with each story, Tillie is showing us that love is love, no matter who doesn’t like it and what odds are stacked against you, true love is with fighting for.

This was absolutely a cry tears of sorrow and joy, heart breaking and healing story.
