Review: I Do, Babe (Hades Hangmen #5.5) by Tillie Cole

Goodreads Synopsis:


Connected since childhood.
Two souls: one dark and one pure.
Bracing to take the greatest step of all.

River ‘Styx’ Nash loves his woman. Ever since he met Mae at the fence of the cult that had kept her captive as a child, he has never loved anyone else. He loves her black hair, her pale skin and of course, her ice-blue ‘wolf eyes’.

Since Mae came crashing back into his life, his only wish has been to marry her; finally to make her his wife. But now the wedding is booked, and only weeks from forever having Mae by his side, a lifelong problem is plaguing him.
He wants to marry her; he has never wanted anything more . . .
. . . if only he could speak the words and declare it to the world.

Salome ‘Mae’ Nash’s life had been filled with heartache and pain . . . until, at age eight, she met a strange dark-haired boy from the outside world. Years later, and reunited with her great love, Mae is ready to solder her heart to his. Finally, Mae is getting ready to marry her man. But her fiancé has become withdrawn. Something is deeply troubling him.
But Mae has no idea what.
Or what to do to help.

Can Styx open up and conquer his deepest pain? Or will the infamous Hangmen Mute allow his fears to overcome his love for Mae and watch their much-anticipated wedding crumble to dust?

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

Chick and Brain Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Because Amazon wanted to be a bunch of tools I had to wait pretty much all day for this bad boy, but man was it worth the wait. Words can not describe how awesome it is to be able to finally have Styx and Mae have their day. Styx and Mae have loved each other since they were young children separated by the confines of their circumstances.  This story honestly brings us all right back to the beginning and reminds us why we fell in love with this series in the first place.

The love that these two characters have for one another rivals that of the classics, it is just amazing for us to read. Their connection to one another goes beyond that of any of the other couples in the series. We are given a more in depth look into this couple’s love and devotion to each other in this short novella. Mae gives Styx courage that he never believed he would even find and Styx gives Mae the family and peace she never thought she deserved.  We are able to see how by these two characters finding one another against the odds cause a ripple effect one the lives of everyone around them for the better.

Without these two, there would be no Hades Hangmen series. They make the series. They made us fall in love with the series and they make us continue to love the series in this novella by reminding us how far everyone has come because of one boy and his desire to make the girl with wolf eyes smile.
