Not even love can conquer the demons of our pasts…
Flame and Maddie have found solace and safety in one another’s arms, two fractured souls beginning to heal. But no matter how strong their love grows, it can never completely vanquish the demons of their pasts. These demons are dormant, not defeated.
Now a new enemy threatens the Hangmen, and a new revelation threatens the peace Maddie and Flame hold so dear. Flame is fighting a multitude of wars – against the club’s new foe, against the horrors of his past, and against his fears – but the fire in his blood may be the only victor.
As Flame begins to spiral into his own personal hell, it is up to Maddie to bring her husband back into her heart. To remind him that, together, they can face any obstacle standing in their way. To show him that no one and nothing can tear them apart again.
The fight for their forever.

*** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review ***
I don’t know how many times my heart broke about this story of two tortured souls who had endured so much.
My heart cracked a little then shattered, almost like I couldn’t handle it, holding my breath, making my heart race and feeling the pain.
But in the darkness, the light still remains. Maddie and Flame took my breath away. I fell in love again with them, like a thousand times more, giving hope for a better future.
I adore the Hangmen world, with all these personalities who had found their home, fighting no matter what for their family. A patchwork of people who had been through a lot and from the outside looked like crazies, people you don’t mess up with. Seeing them fighting for their loved ones, so fierce and also laying their feelings bare, showing all the imperfections, flaws and acknowledging that part of darkness they had in them.
This journey was going into more depth, depicting a darkness and inhumanity that send shivers to your spine, beyond everything you might have imagined, scars left on human bodies and souls- especially souls.
The love they shared was just pure, magnificent and transcendent, the kind of love you could feel in your whole body.
Damn my emotions! New book, please!!
