Title: Sick Fux
When Ellis Earnshaw and Heathan James met as children, they couldn’t have been more different. Ellis was loud and beautiful – all blond hair, bright laughs and smiles. Heathan was dark and brooding, and obsessed with watching things die.
The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell.
Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.
Each one more deadly than the last.

Sometimes I need something a little different to break up the romances that I typically read. Tillie Cole delivers that. Please note before you purchase this book that it is a very violent book, a dark romance. Yes there is romance, a happily ever after even. There is also plenty of death and violence, and abuse of the cruelest sort. This is an extremely dark book. There are scenes that could very well be a trigger for many. There are also some taboo subject matters.
I’m not even sure where to start with this review. Sick Fux is something so different from anything else I’ve ever read. The book kept me engaged the whole way through their adventure. Once you start reading it it’s next to impossible to put it down. As a reader I had to see just how far they would go. The biggest thing to point out (other than the darkness of the book) is that the book is layered with Alice in Wonderland elements, heavily layered. And let’s face it falling down that rabbit hole is dark and twisty anyways.
“I didn’t want her sane mind. I wanted her like this: fucked up, and dark perfection.”
I just kind of loved Heathan. Not in the way that I do most of the heroes from my books. I loved his desire for Ellis to be free of what she has become. There was/is nothing that this man wouldn’t do for his girl. It was that drive and devotion that kept him going. He is over the top possessive but it is sexy as hell (and scary) that he would stop at nothing for her. After he is separated from her as a child he bides his planning the revenge they will have on all those that have hurt them. Heathan spends more than a decade waiting to go back for Ellis.
During their time apart Ellis found a way to cope with her abuse that has left her a wholly different person than the child Heathan remembers. Her mind has provided her with a shelter of sorts. Sadly the damage is done and there is nothing that can erase that. The rational reader will want her to get some psychiatric help. The help that Heathan provides is cathartic, and violently bloody.
There are a couple of secondary characters that are just, possibly more twisted that Heathan. I’m curious if Cole plans to pen there tales as well. I for one know that I would purchase their books.
