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.
Steadfastly devout in her faith, and retaining the deep belief that her soul is innately tarnished as a branded ‘Cursed woman of Eve,’ Delilah is determined to find her way home to her people in The Order and away from the corrupt and damned outlaw motorcycle club—The Hades Hangmen—who hold her at their secluded compound for her protection—a ‘protection’ she strongly resents.
Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lord’s revealed prophet, can her Satan-spawned soul be truly saved. Conditioned her entire life to believe she is a witch… a life-long temptress… the devil’s whore… Delilah increasingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle club—a deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful man—is charged with her care, Delilah begins to see that this dangerous and moralless sinner from the ‘outside’ may offer her something she did not know could truly exist: unconditional love.
Kyler ‘Ky’ Willis loves his life: a daily abundance of brotherhood, liquor, the freedom of the open-road and—best of all—his pick of hot women. Raised a biker brat and now VP of the most notorious MC in the States, Ky has no shortage of club sluts warming his bed; a situation he takes full advantage of… until a certain blonde enters his life… a gorgeous pilgrim-blonde he can’t get out of his head… a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult… and a pilgrim-blonde he’s been ordered to keep the hell away from and his whorish hands off.
When yet another in a lengthy line of drunken blunders forces Ky to reluctantly take charge of the pilgrim-blonde’s care, he realizes that there could be more to this woman than just supermodel looks and a stacked set of tits. He begins to see that she could be the woman who could do the impossible—tame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.
But the unyielding bonds of Lilah’s past are strong, her ‘people’ determined and, with a new Prophet in charge and hell bent on revenge, they are mightily reluctant to let her go…
I first fell in love with the Hangman Series with River in It ain’t me Babe and from then on out, I was SOLD and I couldn’t wait, could NOT wait until Ky’s story came out. I was very Lucky to be a part of the blog tour and got to read their story early and let me tell you it’s been sooo hard to not just explode and tell everyone about it. Now that day has come!
We meet Lilah who has just been rescued, or kidnaped from cult waked the *uck out and is plopped right in the middle of all she has ever known to be sinful. Lila is one of the three ‘cursed’ women who are so beautiful that they can only be the off spring of Satan because they lure everyone under their spell and cause them to sin. Yes, you heard me, she is so beautiful that it’s an issue! When I first read about this I thought to myself, she just defined pretty girl problems right?
WRONG! Delilah ‘Li” has been so badly brainwashed she believes to the fullest extent that there is something wrong with her because of her beauty and she longs to go back to the cult she was rescued from as she feels it’s her only salvation to no longer be cursed.
“The Order was simply following the Lord’s will when the elders tried their best to rid us of the devil in our frequent celestial joining’s.”
Kyler “Ky’ Willis is like, sex on a stick, a sex Popsicle, sex walking all of it! He’s the epitome of the cliché biker, cocky as hell, rowdy and did I mention cocky?
“I’m honest. I’m hot as **ck and I know it. Why lie?”
He loved being a biker, having sex, getting drunk and on yea, having sex. When he lays eyes on Lilah for the first time, a seed is planted and even though Li is scared of her own shadow, they begin an unlikely friendship that blossomed into more. I loved this book for the entertaining story but as I was reading it I kept thinking that while this story is fiction it IS loosely based on some events that have happened. Not the whole biker saves the cult, but of what happens in cults and there was more than a few time where I defiantly needed a minute to process what just went down in a scene.
By the end of the book my we “pretty girl problems” thinking had done a total 180 and my heart wept, wept for Lilah! What she endured, her thinking, the brainwashing and the ultimately what she did to become “free” made this story so much more touching than It aint me Babe, and it will stick with me for a long while. I was very pleased to see Flame and Maddie had a lot of scene setting the stage nicely for Flame and Maddie’s book.
These books just seem to get better and better and I will be reading them until the end, although I may have to skip over Cain, effing Rider’s story cause, gross I hate him!
