When I first joined Goodreads I was a super prude and never read books of the porny variety for fear that . . . .



But then something happened that changed everything . . . .



And now my only fear is that somehow I’ll forget to unclick that “share on Facebook” button and all my family will see that I’m a disgusting pervert.

It Ain’t Me, Babe is definitely not for everyone. As with most naughty books, you have to be able to leave your reality at the door – and I mean REALLY leave it at the dpervert.

This is the story of an escaped religious cult member, Mae finding refugee in the arms of a MC President, Styx. I think because I didn't get swept up with Styx and Mae as a couple the story fell flat for me.

The Hangmen Biker Club was an okay club I didn't find them any different from any other biker books. Their dealings with other organizations were broader but their compound ran the same as any other I have read. As for the commune, well I watched HBO’s Big Love and The OrdeStars

Ok. I honestly don’t know where to start. I’m in fucking AWE of this writer…just pure…utter…awe. I’m a massive fan of Tillie Cole, and this story just solidifies why I love her stories so much. She has taken a big risk writing this because it is extremely different from her previous work. This is NOT your typical MC story. Oh, no. There are so many other elements that make it stand out.

Well this one took me for a ride!!
I went into it with a little trepidation, having seen the mixed reviews.
The first 35% of it seemed to drag.
I had no clue what the hell this story was about.
Maybe it's because I kept starting the book late at night, when I was almost dead to the world.
At first I was thinking this was a paranormal read, with all the biblical and Greek mythological references.
But eventually everything clicked, and I settled in for this wild and crazy ride!!

Salome/MAE and Styx were destined to be together.
They meet up when they are young children nearby a gated fence deep in the woods. Styx aka "River" sees this beautiful little girl with black hair and the most beautiful blue eyes, he calls them "wolf eyes", and he is immediately mesmerized by her. She is crying and a little afraid of Styx, but comes closer to the fence when he calls her over. Styx has a very bad stuttering problem. It's so bad, that he uses sign language 95% of the time. Only his dad and his BFF, have ever heard him speak.
Something about Mae, makes him able to speak to her as well.
Unfortunately their little meeting is cut short, but neither of them has forgotten the other.
Styx spends the next several years obsessed with the girl with the beautiful wolf eyes in the woods, and Mae holds on to the memory of the beautiful boy she met by the fence.


Mae lives in a bizarre religious commune, and the things that happened to her for most of her life are just beyond horrific.
Styx grew up in the MC lifestyle his whole life.
Fifteen years later, fate brings these two together.
Mae escapes the commune, but ends up injured in the process.
Somehow she hitches a ride and ends up being dropped outside the "Hangmen's" compound.


 photo d6d06509bd072aaee2eb73dbe6932f16_zpsf43e5ffa.jpg


It was amazing how Styx seemed to recognize her, having last seen her when she was only eight.


I was thinking this is pretty much bull and when we learned all that happened to her at the commune, I was surprised that she was able to be with Styx so easily right from the start.


"I have only even liked one boy in my life. I have only wanted one man to have as my own. I have only ever had one dream since I was eight. Styx, the dream is you. You stole my heart fifteen years ago and you still haven't given it back."


BUT, I did let that go eventually and there was so much action that I was very much entertained.
STYX was super HOT and the sexy time had my temperature rising!!


There are a few other MC characters that I'm hoping will get their own books. The ending pretty much guarantees there's more to come for these guys and looks like the nightmare might only just be beginning for the Hangmen.

There are so many things I don't like about this book, that I don't know where to start.


Mae: The female main character. Mae’s character is utterly unrealistic, nothing about her was credible. Her character development, her behavior, her thoughts, all are completely incongruous with those of an abused girl who has been forced to live her entire life within the confines of a deeply abusive sect.

It Ain't Me, Babe is an okay read. I liked some parts (mostly the last 25-30%) and other times I found myself cringing at the cheesy dialogue. Overall, not amazing, just mediocre. I'm honestly more excited about Flame's story. This man was nuts, but I'd be lying if I said he wasn't my kind of nuts. <3 Can't wait for his book!

I'm not going to do a full review on this one.
It's older and been read/reviewed by some amazing people who have done it great justice.
Solid story, great writing with lots of spicy sexy times.
This is not a book to read if you have triggers... but, I think the blurb (and some other reviewers) made that clear.
