It Aint Me Babe by Tillie Cole reviewed by Melissa Rob

Sinning never felt so good… A fortuitous encounter. A meeting that should never have happened. Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever… Salome knows only one way to live—under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence—the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free. Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again. River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life—he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six—much to his rivals’ delight. Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away. Styx has one rule in life—never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot… a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go… Dark Contemporary Romance/New Adult Novel.
This was my first time reading a Tillie Cole book and it will certainly not be my last. Meet Styx tall, dark, and handsome, and President of the Hades MC. Meet Salome or as the MC calls her Mae stunningly beautiful and labeled one of the "cursed" by The Order. When Mae literally lands in the MC's backyard the MC isn't sure what to make of it. Is someone sending a message or are they being set up. One things for sure Mae isn't going anywhere for awhile. Styx and his V.P. Ky have to figure out if there's a rat amongst their MC or is there an outside threat. Just as you think you've got this book figured out you come to an unbelievable realization. I can't wait to read the second book!
