***Edited to add*** Because I'm getting fucking tired of people's asshole comments on this, let me be clear:

I am NOT telling people not to read this book. I have read and loved a LOT of dark romance. I am merely saying that this books contains a HUGE no go zone for some people. And readers have a right to be made aware of that before they decide to spend their hard earned money on a book that has such a trigger. For the people that are aware of it and want to continue on, that's wonderf

I cannot WAIT to share this book with you all!

I will warn you now, this book is DARK.

Really. Bloody. DARK!

Do NOT read this novel if you have issues with violence (really inventive acts of violence), taboo topics (yes, this book goes down some seriously interesting routes), and an (un)healthy dose of effed-up-ness (yes, I invented this word just to help make this point!).

Our main couple are off the charts crazy. The story will have your jaws dropping and you shouting, "WHAT THE EFF????" frequ

It pains me to DNF a Tillie Cole book. She is one of my favorite authors. I was looking forward to this book, and I don't mind dark romance, so I had high hopes it would work for me. Sadly, it just wasn't the book for me. I had a few personal issues- but I think a lot of people will love it! Of course I'll continue to read everything else this author writes- I adore her and love most of her books!

"Something much darker and more sinister, caused by stripping a beautiful creature of its ability to fly, to thrive."


My grandmother used to always tell me, 'you will never know if a psychopath is sitting next to you on the train'.

This book killed me. I hated it. I hated everything about it, and the worst fucking thing I realized after I hit the final chapter was that I hated that I was going to give it a stellar review. It deserves it. Truly.

I'm pretty sure y'all wondering why I liked this book. Simple. Let me tell you why.

Note: This is a very dark romance.

This was one of the darkest romance book I've ever read. It was hideous, vile, and very disturbing. A book that I think only those who has the toughest mind could read. I swear, I almost dnf this because I couldn't handle the things Ellis and Heathan went through. It was so sad to think that probably there are people in this wor

SICK FUX is unlike anything I’ve ever read by the talented Tillie Cole. It’s a twisted and sinister version of the popular children’s fairytale, ”Alice In Wonderland”. The subject matter is dark and the Hero and Heroine are borderline psychotic but I found that it worked for them and th

honestly sort of a weird place to DNF this book since the first half is the truly disturbing part. but once i figured out the true direction this book was going i just didn't... care anymore?

this is an incredibly dark romance that dealt with child abuse/sexual assault. the two main characters are help captive by the girl's dad and repeatedly raped as children. in their adulthood they come back together to go on a killing spree.

This is horrible-horrible, nasty-nasty. I’m seriously sorry I even cracked it open (curiousity is my resident vice!). Thank goodness I had enough braincells to shut it back closed, glue it together and chuck it out my window (I might be exaggerating slightly at this point, though the temptation to do just this was strong with me!)

so this story started good... and by good i mean absolutely fucking disgusting i needed a lobotomy, an exorcism, and maybe the healing hands of jesus christ himself after that


but i mean this in a good way, because when i pick up a dark book i basically want everything to be so fucked up that i experience symptoms of physical illness from all the dread and anxiety im feeling. this book achieved that. i was disgusted. i was invested. i wanted revenge for these two children and was so excited f

Tillie Cole takes a walk on the dark side with a tale of two young children’s abusive pasts that gives way into a killing spry as they are adults. Ellis Earnshaw a homeschooled child meets Heathan James and through her love for the tale of Alice in Wonderland he becomes her white rabbit.

Nature vs Nurture? That’s the question asked in regards to serial killers. We’re they born that way? Or did they become that way due to abuse/neglect/exploitation? The question is always the same but the answer never is, because every case is different.

In the case of Heathen or more aptly, Rabbit; he was born with a sadistic, perhaps psychotic desires. But what really nurtured those desires into full blown needs, we’re the men who not only abused him but more importantly abused her, the

"Tick tock."

Sick Fux is a trip down the rabbit hole with dark romance, action, suspense, and complex characters living in a complex world. Warning this book is not for the faint at heart as the circumstances in which these characters live and breathe is violent and grotesque.

I’d read some of Ms. Cole’s work and loved them but they were Contemporary/Romance. This one was my first Dark read by her and I didn’t like it. I really tried and struggled so hard to finish it but couldn’t. I couldn’t feel the connection between MCs. I was so unattached to this story. It was just my opinion and you can pay not attention to it and read it, hope you enjoy it!

Two kids endure a horrific childhood. The boy physically escapes his nightmare when he becomes an adult and frees the girl from her hellish existence. This story's about alter egos and revenge with an abundance of Alice in Wonderland references.

No. Words. NONE! It took me a couple days to read this because it was fucking insane. But I knew going in that it was going to be cray. I don't even know how to gather my thoughts after that. I have to say, if you're a sensitive reader this is absolutely NOT your book. But if you like dark and you have a high tolerance for fuckedupness and you're not someone who is easily triggered, you might find this utterly enthralling. I was wide eyed reading it.

This was one of the darkest books I've read and just not for me.

Going into this one, I was actually really excited. I love Tillie Cole and I love a good dark romance, but I was not prepared for how dark this one would be.

The dark nature of this book has to do with both of our main characters being repeatedly raped and abused by adult men. These characters become so traumatized by the experience that they create separate identities for themselves from Alice and Wonderland. The premise of the bo

I first read Six Fux two years ago. I feel in love with this very dark book. I was fortunate enough to be at one of Stephen Kings talks where he said,” Why wouldn't you read your favorite book more than once, You will get a different perspective” he was right, so I re-read Sick Fux, where most people wouldn’t even if they love it. So glad I did. I missed a few details from my first time and whole new respect for their vengeance,

At the beginning of the book I was really intrigued by the story and I thought ahh he’s crazy, and she’s the good girl,, but boy was I totally wrong. I don’t have any triggers, but the first half of the book was really hard because these scenes were really graphic, but I think the whole book is hard I love me a good dark romance I love them, but this one is EXTRA.

I’ve decided to rate this book in it’s category of all kinds of OTT fuckupness, a word I’m borrowing from Monique.

I’m going to try my best to inform those who haven’t read the book without giving spoilers, but enough that you go into the book with open eyes.

So, anything that is out of this world that you would probably see in a dark psychotic, depraved horror movie happens here in this book.

I don't really like my romantic smut served with violence, cutting each other or licking each other's blood. And it's so painful and hard to read graphically detailed child abuse scenes.

Ellis Earnshaw grew up on a secluded estate where her only contact was with family and a limited number of childhood friends. After her mother died, Ellis relied on her father and forged a friendship with a boy whose father worked on the estate. At nine years old, Ellis would host tea parties while playing the role of Alice and her new friend would be Rabbit and play along every time.
