Even salvation can be delivered through the love of the damned…

Beauty can be a curse.

Faith can be a cage.

Only love can set you free.

A few long weeks after being reluctantly ripped from the comforting embrace of her sacred prophet’s religious commune—the only life she has ever known—a terrified Delilah is thrust into a world enveloped by evil and swimming in sin.

I thought I had my favorites list for 2014 all put together, then I read this book, and had to shuffle everything around. Tillie Cole is an amazing writer and she has this ability to make me feel so much when reading. This book had me awake all hours of the night reading until I finished. I sat there and read for five straight hours, my eyes glued to my kindle until I read the last page. I literally could not put it down. I looked like a zombie the next day at work, but it was so

So because I LOVE this book, and I wrote it, I'm gonna give it a whopping 5 STARS!!!!

Ky, I adore, but it's Lilah that broke my heart, made me want to save her, made me want to make her whole...kept me hoping and fighting for her salvation, peace and happiness.

I hope you all enjoy it too! I left a little of my heart behind with this novel.

So I have been looking forward to this thing for what feels like forever.


Now, being that was the case, I was a little bit...nervous.

Why you say?

Because I seem to have been in a bit of a book slump lately, with several books I have been looking forward to for awhile (like this one) being kinda, sorta, okay very disappointing.

So I kind of went in to this book like this:

Well, this escalated quickly..

I definitely did like it, but I can’t help feeling like the love connection between Lilah and Ky had something missing. There were moments when I totally believed it but then there were some when I rationalised some things, and it just made me doubt the genuineness of it.

I understood the need to highlight how beautiful and desirable Lilah was, because that was the source of all her misery. Her beauty w

In the last book we saw how Kyle was immediately taken by Lilah after their rescue from the cult. But she’s too much of a religious nut-case and he’s too much of a manwhore and badass biker to ever act on it. When Styx tells him that he have to help Lilah adjusting to the outside world everything changes for them and what begins with a strange friendship soon turns into something more.
But when two different worlds collide and Lilah’s past keeps haunting her, how does two peo

An emotional, raw, romance about two very different people falling in love.

"Before you I was vacant of love. Now I am replete. Before you I lived without hope. Now I am inspired. Before you I was broken. Now I am whole."

Kyler 'Ky' Willis is the VP of the Hades Hangmen MC, he is carefree and lives to indulge - sex, alcohol, violence. He lives his life the way he wants and makes no excuses, embracing the motto his father taught him.

We already have the background, have met it’s characters and it the nicest possible way sometimes it’s almost the same story being told; with just different people telling it. What

Lilah's been taken from the only place she'd called home, she is scared and doesn't trust these 'evil' men in black leather who came in guns a blazing and took her and her sister's.

"No, Maddie. I do not think we will be safe here. In fact, I think Mae has dropped us into the depths of Hell."

Ky is a manwhore, no other way to describe him but this manwhore has met his match in Lilah. Even though everyone else can see that Lilah was rescued away from very evil people she still

My heart broke and bled for Lilah! She was so confused, so distraught, so brainwashed, so damaged and tortured...she questioned everything, understood nothing, felt so deeply!

Lilah was ripped away from The Order, the only life she's ever really known. One of the Cursed, she was a devout follower, a true believer...of all the girls, the one most rooted in the teachings.

Ky is tasked with protecting Lilah, showing her the world, teaching her how to live out

This is book two in the hades hangman series and this the story of Lilah and Ky. The events in this book continue what happened after the first book ended and how Lilah still believes what they taught her at this cult and how she tries to adjust to the outside world and tries to blend in with this new life.

I liked this book not as much as I liked the first one but It was good. I liked Lilah and Ky’s journey and how they tried to heal each other from their past scars. At first, I didn’t like
★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★

Now Live!

Heart Recaptured starts off exactly where It Ain't Me Babe finished - Styx, Ky and Mae rescuing her sisters from The Order, which is a Apocalyptic New Religious Movement that focuses on 'the Lords Sharing' and the degradation of women. When they free Lilah and Maddie, it's clear that its going to be a long battle to help them integrate into the outside world. Ky is smitten with Lilah's beautiful face and body, which is the very thing that she believes is her curse.

“You are my unattainable dream come true.”

Heart Recaptured is a highly emotional and at times very difficult book to read given its vivid, dark and brutal descriptions of the happenings our heroine Lilah endures. More than the tender and utterly heartbreaking romance here though, what makes this tale successful is how brilliantly Ms. Cole captures and then effortlessly animates the emotions of Lilah—her anger, confusion, self-loathin

I think me and Tillie Cole are just not meant to be. Everyone else loves her books but my nickname stands true, I am the wildcard reader and they aren't for me.

I think the idea of this series is very interesting, cults and mc clubs. I just don't like the characters.
