Sick Fux

by Tillie Cole

Published October 9th 2017


Genre: Dark Romance




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.

Tick Tock.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for ages 18 and over.





This book was something different – in a OMG, WOW, CHILLING kind of way.

Tillie Cole managed to write a novel that didn’t fit any norm, or box. She wrote a book that changed my way of thinking of dark romances and twisted minds. SICK FUX was one crazy roller coaster ride and I’m still amazed by the sheer brilliance of the storyline and the characters that were some of the most unique I’ve ever read.

SICK FUX was nothing like I ever read before.

Not only was the storyline unique and spellbinding, the characters had me glued to the pages. Ellis and Heathen’s journey was heartbreakingly raw and emotionally shattering. Throughout the book, it was spellbinding to watch them change so dramatically in a personal and psychological way.

The darkness in Ellis and Heathen had me salivating for more – I never thought I could be so bloodthirsty and turned on by such twisted minds, but I was taught better by the author. She had me captivated and wanting MORE.

I think the aspect that stood out the most was the love story between Ellis and Heathen. I was floored by the strength and all consuming love that grew between the couple since childhood and later on reemerged and was rebuild into a bond that couldn’t be cracked. I absolutely adored Heathen’s ability to know exactly what Ellis needed and vice versa. It makes characters so much more appealing for me if they almost have a sixth sense about their partner, such a deep understanding that their bond turns unbreakable.

But at the end it all came down to the AMAZING ability of the author to pin an utterly unique, twisted and heartbreaking story that was all consuming. I’m still reeling from the dark aspects but also from the beauty that could be found throughout the entire novel. I can say one thing for sure – I’ll NEVER forget this story – TICK TOCK!!!

  1. I just bought the book…so i’m really looking forward to reading this… mixed reaction from a couple of people… but hey! Its Tillie cole! Can’t not read it hahaha

    1. lol – I’m not surprised of the mixed reactions – it’s not for everyone that’s sure. But the love story was amazing, and the creativity and imagination by the author was stunning. It was a crazy but bloodily good reading experience. 😀

      1. looking forward to reading it. I’ve been having such a bad reading slump… so i’m waiting for my ‘grove’ to come back or else I wont be able to enjoy this book as much hahaha

  2. I have recently fallen in love with this author and love the way she writes her books. I didn’t know about this one, so I can’t wait to pick it up. I do love those dark romances especially with the author at the helm.

    1. Oh, I loved her Scarred Souls series – it was fabulous in case you want to start somewhere. I would NOT recommend Sick Fux as your first book by Tillie Cole.😂

  3. I’d been meaning to read a Tillie Cole book for YEARS. I kept seeing reviews of her books and was intrigued. I have several on my Kindle (from the Scarred Souls and Hades Hangmen series). But A Thousand Boy Kisses happened to be the first one I picked up. It sounded sweet and the cover was gorgeous. And I disliked that book SO MUCH. Oh my gosh, I sent 95% of the book rolling my eyes at the cheesy dialogue and the overly sappy story. And since then I’ve been highly skeptical about picking up anything else by TC. I have a friend who swears ATBK is nothing like TC’s other books, but that one really left a bad taste in my mouth. Now I’m totally intrigued by Sick Fux but nervous to give her another try!

    1. I loved the Scarred Souls. And Sick Fux was so different from anything I read by her – it’s not even comparable. Now, I have not read Hades Hangmen, because when tried the first book I didn’t like the writing. Maybe she matured over the years. I don’t know. I also kept my fingers far away from ATBK because of the ending. I don’t like reading sob stories. But Scarred Souls is a series I recommend to anyone that likes alphas that are damaged to the extreme. They were deliciously animalistic. 😀
