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…

“It’s me babe... Ain’t no other man for you... but me.”


If you haven't read this book yet, I would highly suggest giving it a try, because

Seriously. It was intense, tragic, gripping, emotional, heartbreaking, and beautiful. It Ain't Me, Babe is a story about two people from completely different worlds who formed a connection the first time they met when they were just kids. Now, 15 years later they meet again under incredibly tense circumstances but their connection never faded...the beauty with the wolf eyes never left Styx's mind all these years and when she shows up battered and bruised at the Hades Hangmen MC compound, he decides to do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

“We were always fated to be together. He is my everything. He is my entire world... 

...Styx is my salvation.”

Mae and Styx were incredibly complex characters and I grew to love them throughout the story. They went through so much trouble and misery and I was rooting the entire time for their happy ending. However, neither of them were perfect and Styx made some huge mistakes....luckily, he redeemed himself though. Overall, this was an unputdownable and unforgettable read and I'm already anxiously looking forward to the next part of this series!
