Review: It Ain't Me, Babe
It Ain't Me, Babe by Tillie Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this take on the MC lifestyle. Styx is basically mute. He suffers from a debilitating stutter and there are only 3 people that he could ever use his voice with; his father, now dead, his best friend Ky who serves as VP to him, the Pres, and the stunning young girl he met through a fence in the forest when he was a boy. Fast forward fifteen years, and that same girl ends up in his compound bleeding out and having escaped the sick cult she was born in to.
Mae knows nothing about the world on the outside. All she knows is that she can't take anymore abuse, rape, and torture at the hands of the elders in her commune. The final straw was witnessing her sister dying after suffering weeks of abuse and beatings. Her sister made her promise to leave, escape the commune and live her life.
Styx and Hades Hangmen live a dangerous,rough, and gritty life, but Mae has war scars of her own. They can't deny the pull they have always had for each other and together they face the future. I'm very excited to see that more books are planned!! Seriously, something is WRONG with Flame. I can't wait to find out why he is the way he is.
