They are the Fallen.
A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.
Control. Diel has spent his entire life under it. His childhood years were spent in the sadistic captivity of the Brethren. Now the Fallen are free, but the monster that lives inside Diel is not—can not be. The darkness within is curbed by an electric collar, the only thing that stops Diel from killing everyone in his path.
Diel’s monster yearns for freedom—the freedom to tear apart Brethren priests, as many as possible, one after the other in a frenzied, liberating spree. When Diel is granted a taste of that freedom, he expects bloodlust, violence, death.
He didn’t expect to find her.
The Fallen are not the only ones chasing the destruction of the Brethren. They were not the only ones to suffer at the priests’ hands. This Diel discovers when he stumbles upon Noa, second in command of the Coven, a group of women who are intent on bringing the Brethren down.
From the second they collide, Noa seems to understand Diel in a way that no one ever has before. She is unafraid of his rage, the bloodthirsty monster that dwells within him.
Because there is a darkness inside Noa too, and it recognises the one in Diel as if it is the missing half of her soul. For years she has tried to suppress it, but as she is inescapably drawn to the fury-filled man in the collar, she starts to wonder if she can keep up the fight.
She starts to wonder if she even should…
Dark contemporary romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

Plot Summary :
I won’t be going much into the plot of the story to avoid spoilers. All I can tell you is that Jugediel along with a few other fallen angels have met their match and holy shit , it’s one hell of a ride!
Overall Opinion :
Have you ever heard of the word “BOOK HANGOVER FROM HELL”? Well , kid you not , that’s the exact phrase I would use to describe this booK! It utterly consumed me and before I knew it , it was knocking off all my books from my top reads list and making its place at the very top!
Tillie Cole is the literal queen of Jegudiel and omg , I can’t even tell you guys how amazing it is. Everything about these characters consumed me. Not only the protagonists but the side characters have wrecked me too. I just need their stories so badly.
Tillie Cole always manages to make me shiver with her words. The emotion , god , it’s like nothing I have ever read before. Like I said above, her books are hauntingly dark and there are a lot of triggers. One of the best things that I like about her books is that she doesn’t sugarcoat the dark stuff. She gives it to us and it’s not like that dark stuff will make you uncomfortable. At Least that’s not the case with me . Her words always make me feel the pain of the characters and all their emotions. Which is why she is my top author of all time.
If you are a fan of dark romance books then please for the love of god , give this author a try. Start this series and there is no way you won’t be hooked completely. That’s her magic. But please make sure to look at the triggers since she does have a lot of those , specially in this series. Highly Recommended. This author destroyed me and I want you all to be destroyed with me lmao.
