Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen #5) by Tillie Cole
TITLE: Damnable Grace
SERIES: (Hades Hangmen #5)
AUTHOR: Tillie Cole
GENRE: Contemporary/Dark Romance
PUBLICATION: April 18th, 2017


Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined... with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

Nothing I will say in this review will make much sense as I am still coming down from the emotional ride this book took me on.

I wanted a dark read and I sure got what I wanted with this one. I think Phebe broke my heart most out of all the leading females in this series. After knowing parts of her story from earlier books I knew it was going to be sad but shit this just tore my heart out. Phebe had every reason to find solace in any substance she could find to rid herself of her horrific memories, how anyone could cope with that is beyond me.

"Lies are the work of the devil. Lies. All I have ever known were lies."

Poor Phebe has gone from one hell to a much worse one. She is being kept by Meister who is running this weird 'town' that supplies women to his sick group of freaks. I felt Phebe getting stronger but as she came clean from the 'potion' and memories slowly returned there is one thing she can't ignore and must get back at any cost, even if she has to risk her own life for it.

"Ain't nothing better to me than family, defending our country and fucking riding the open road. It's what I want. For real."

I love AK's story, his connection to his family and his ingrained need to help everyone. Subtle reminders of how things went in previous books lead up to the present where the Hangmen are trying to come up with a plan to rescue Lily's sister, AK has been thinking of red hair and freckles since that fateful night at the commune so will stop at nothing to make her safe. AK is amazing and I fell for him in a big way.

I loved every messed up part of this book, it hooked me from the first page and I had so much trouble putting it down. Best Hangmen yet in my opinion. This series must be read in order otherwise you'd be totally lost.
