"For fractured souls are like magnets.
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.
Review by: Amy C
"But maybe, just maybe, someone comes into your life and makes you question yourself. Makes you believe you are worth something." How does one value worth? Through wealth, good looks or is it more? Love can be the simplistic of a glance or gesture. Simplicity and purity is what captured their admiration. Faithful ness and a steadfast need to protect drew them closer. The unconditional trust brought everything home.
Flame is the scariest and the most courageous of characters. He can make a grown man shiver and beg for life. He can glance with his eyes as dark asand give strength. He is as graceful with a blade as he is deadly, yet he comforts and soothes. I absolutely love the complexity and raw courage of is character. I was rooting for him from the first time he was mentioned because he was amazingly loyal. His loyalty stuck out and I just knew he would find his reason for being.
Maddie....sweet and broken Maddie. Plucked from all that she knew, she had to learn to trust again. She had to give in to ways of the outside world and find solace. It wasn't until he paced and kept watch outside her window that she began to feel peace. He offered her safety and she couldn't help but take it. Watching Maddie struggle with faith and vitality was amazing. Her strength and courage made her admirable. Her ability to see the beauty in the horrific made her fantastic to read.
Together they lived and breathed each other. They attempted to heal together one another through developing trust and love. Their struggles were not over, but facing them together made them breathtaking to read. "What are words? Sometimes the flick of a pair of eyes or the flush of skin reveals everything you need to know."
This book captures everything that Flame and Maddie represent. Courage, devastation, salvation and rebirth. These characters are flawlessly thought out and written. I couldn't tell where one ended and the other began. The story was seamless and beautifully written. Tillie is the master of reflective feels. It isn't until hours later that I broke down and was able to fully absorb the story. It caused the ache in my heart to be soothed and comforted in knowing the series would continue!! I ABSOLUTELY without a doubt recommend this story and the whole series.
6+ stars!!! Well done love!
Tillie Cole is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain.
