„Love was a powerful remedy, but it was not a cure for some scars. They ran too deep. They were incurable.”
I’m a sobbing mess. I knew that Flame and Maddie’s book will rip my heart out, but still I wasn’t prepared for this rollercoaster of emotions. These characters are my favorite for a reason- they’re both incredibly strong, but also very fragile at the same time. Their love is raw and pure and they fought so hard to overcome all the obstacles standing in their way. So seeing that they need to go through another battle with the demons from the past brought me to my knees.
My dear Flame… I can’t even comprehend how he struggled to be the husband Maddie deserves. This tormented man has been through so much and he has so many demons that I was constantly worried about him. He doesn’t need much to snap on the regular, so when the triggers started to attack him from every angle, his mind brought back the past traumas.
Maddie was and still is what keeps him sane. She’s the fighter and fierce protector of their love. She doesn’t let anything nor anyone to threaten what she and Flame have. For such a delicate and scarred woman she’s so incredibly brave and strong. Her love is genuine and inspiring.
But Mads and Flame aren’t the only ones who brought tears to my eyes. My heart broke for Lil’ Ash, who was trying so hard to deal with what happened with his best friend. He reminds me so much of his older brother. The need for revenge and overwhelming grief were sometimes too much to cope. My chest ached for his tortured soul and the thoughts that were running through his mind were like a wrecking ball to my heart. I really hope that he’ll heal, because right now I’m devastated when I think about what he’s going through…
But My Maddie is not only heartbreaking. There were also moments of pure joy and delight. I was so happy to see that the Hangmen family is growing and that together they can face every issue. I was so glad that Maddie and Flame’s love is stronger than any obstacle. There were also hilarious moment thanks to our pineapple-loving ginger. I know that our beloved bikers can fight every enemy and push through every setback, because they’re surrounded by love and loyalty.
I can’t get enough of this series. My Maddie is a heartbreakingly beautiful addition to the Hades Hangmen and I can’t wait for the next books. Tillie Cole proved once again that she’s super talented author and that she can fill your heart, mind and soul to the brim with emotions.
