"FOR FRACTURED SOULS ARE LIKE MAGNETS. DRAWN TO COLLIDE INTO AN IMPOSSIBLE BLISS…"
Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in. Free from endless years of physical and mental torment.
At age twenty-one, the timid and shy Maddie is content to live within the confines of her new home—safe from the outside world, safe from harm and, strangely, protected by the Hangmen’s most volatile member; the heavily pierced and tattooed, Flame.
The man who ceaselessly watches over her with his midnight dark and searing eyes. The man who protects her with a breath-taking intensity. And the man who stirs something deep within her numbed heart.
But when circumstances conspire for Flame to need HER help, Maddie bravely risks it all for the broken man who has captivated her fragile soul.
The Hangmen’s most infamous member, Flame, is ruled by one thing—anger. Plagued by haunting demons from his past, an all-consuming rage, and isolated by an abhorrent hatred of being touched, Flame's days are filled with suffocating darkness, pierced only by a single ray of light—Maddie. The shy, beautiful woman he cannot purge from his thoughts. The woman he has an overwhelming need to possess… ... the only person who has ever been able to touch him.
Flame’s mission in life is to protect Maddie, to keep her safe. Until a trigger from his troubled past sends him spiraling into madness, trapping him in the deepest recesses of his disturbed mind.
His Hangmen brothers fear that Flame is beyond saving.
His only hope of salvation: Maddie and her healing light.
Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and over.

Tillie writes raw stories. The way life is and how it is supposed to be. There is nothing beautiful about the life within an MC. The men have a rough exteria and they’re not always gentle to the outside. Her stories are very visual and I love that about her writing style. The perspective is from both Maddie and Flame, which gives you a good insight in their minds.
For fractured souls are like magnets…
Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…
My thoughts of Souls Unfractured
I couldn’t wait to read this book. From the moment I read the first book in this series I was drawn to Flame. The crazy brother of the MC. Flame cuts himself, murders like he’s in a slaughter house, and even the MC themselves are a tidbit scared of him. I wanted to know more. Everybody who knows me a little, knows I’m a sucker for the broken boys. And broken he is. A broken motherfucker.
The book surely didn’t disappoint. Quite the opposite. Tillie put Maddie’s and Flame’s broken souls perfectly on paper. She also sketched to perfection how it is seen in everything they do, and how they help each other. What they mean to one another. This is a beautiful story about heavy trauma and even more heavy subjects. This isn’t for the faint hearted, but when you can look further than just the exterior of a person, you’re in for the most beautiful story written.
Maddie and Flame hold a special place in my heart. They grabbed hold of me on page one and never let me go. If you love heavy stories, dark romances and everything in between, this story is for you.
What are words? Sometimes the flick of a pair of eyes or the flush of the skin reveals everything you need to know. Words can wound. Silence can heal.
Such a beautiful story
