Tillie Cole – Crux Untamed| ARC Review


Title: Crux Untamed ( Hades Hangman #6)
Author: Tillie Cole
Genre: Romance, Dark
Publication Date: February 27, 2018


A broken woman.
A damaged man.
A free spirit intent on saving them both.

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to.
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose.
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it.
Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts.
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive.
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.

I can honestly say that this book is not for the faint of heart. The Hades Hangman series is a series that I can’t help but enjoy. It’s darker content may trigger some and Crux Untamed is no different. It contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. So I’d advice you to read it only if you are over 18+.

I took me a while to review this book because this book truthfully made me really sad. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an addictive book but there were parts that broke my heart and the truth of the matter is, the context is real. The story may be fictional but it’s based on things that have happened to others in the past and is probably still happening (Granted the subject of the matter may have sobered down a bit).
It’s hard to explain the pain you, as readers, go through when you read the words in the book. It’s hard to explain the joy of having someone love you regardless of your colour, caste and creed.
Tillie Cole has written a book that makes you want to welcome this unconventional with open arms. FYI, Crux Untamed is an MFM romance.

Now that I have blatantly made it quite obvious that I really enjoyed this book, I will say that it wasn’t my favourite in the Hades Hangman Series. Sia, Hush and Cowboy make a beautiful trio but when it comes to the entire Hades Hangman family, there are other that will always be closer to my heart.

But nonetheless, I really hope you give this book a try.
Happy reading!

  1. Exactly, this book was all FEELS but then I felt like she should’ve written it as a spin off from the Hangmen series. In that case she would’ve been explore the characters more deeply, and built their relationships gradually. *sighs* But it was a beautiful book nonetheless♥

      1. Tillie’s definitely one of those authors not scared to fuck with the reader’s minds. Even more so, I feel like she’s unafraid of what people think and more like she puts that story out that she wants. I love that about her. She’s not a slave to her audience

      2. True. You need to have a little courage to read her books. You need to be more open minded to read and understand her books. I also applaud her for writing something that’s unconditional too because I see some authors who look down or throw shade on other authors who write books like Tillie does… hopefully she doesn’t take their words to heart.

      3. I haven’t seen anyone like that. What the hell?! I kinda don’t like sell out authors that write just for the sake of getting that 5 minute of fame. Their stories are so formulaic it’s gag worthy.
