Sinning never felt so good…
A fortuitous encounter.
A meeting that should never have happened.
Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever…
Salome knows only one way to live—under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence—the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free.
Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again.
River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life—he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six—much to his rivals’ delight.
Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away.
Styx has one rule in life—never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot… a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go…

I am struggling to find the words to simply express how much this story has touched me, we are taken on an incredibly dark and soulful journey and it made me struggle with my own long held faith.
I loved how we were showed their history, it was done at the right moments of the storyline to help you understand their connections and where it all fit in and how they endured their youth.
The cult storyline is a bitter pill to take, it shook me to my core, made me shudder with the darkness but when we are given light, love, hope and faith by the author it shines and repairs those breaks that you are nursing for these two main characters.
Rider was one supporting character that I fell in love with and the light and darkness of his journey through the book was just breathtaking to unfold. Mae’s cult sisters, how they brought such strength and integrity to the story.
I finished this book and immediately downloaded Heart Recaptured (Hades Hangman #2), I cannot leave these characters, I need to know what happens next – this is going to be an awesome series and I think we are heading for some tough times ahead for the rest of the characters we have met.
It Ain’t Me, Babe (Hades Hangmen #1)
