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!!!
