First in a new series—welcome to the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club, where hard bodies and hot leather are made for each other, and love gone wrong is the most irresistible of all...
“I was the demon-possessed monster and she was the innocent, naïve angel. But none of that matters. She asks, I give and right now, I'll kill anyone who tries to stop me from giving this woman what she wants—me.”
Dirk lives in the shadows—performing hits, maintaining order, and upholding the no-holds-barred legacy of the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club. A nomad with a restless spirit and a cold heart, the open road is his world. One of the few constants in his life: his desire for the one woman who has consumed his thoughts for years.
Saylor Samson grew up far from the harshness of Dirk’s world. But ever since she was seventeen she’s been drawn to this dark and mysterious man who always seemed to show up just when she needed him.
After years of fated encounters, he’s back. This time he’s taking her. This time she’s ready for the ride. But just when the darkness in Dirk’s life begins to fade, Saylor reveals a secret that puts them both to the ultimate test. Now, Dirk has to make a decision: submit to his destiny with the MC, or choose his own.
Romance hits the road in this overblown tale of a hardcore biker who finds his soulmate just when he least expects to. Jones (Saving Dallas) introduces readers to Dirk, a cold-blooded, roving troubleshooter for the Sinner's Creed Motorcycle Club. When his path repeatedly crosses with the beautiful, innocent Saylor Samson, he discovers an inexplicable connection; before he knows it, she's joined him on his travels and their mutual attraction blossoms first into passionate encounters, then into love. In his line of work, any sign of weakness can be fatal, and an encounter with a rival MC threatens to destroy Dirk and Saylor's newfound happiness. Dirk's voice is profane and raw, his tone uncompromising, as he accepts the grim reality of his existence as a soldier and killer for the only family he's ever known. Filtered through his perceptions, Saylor comes off as a passive enigma much of the time, more of a plot device than a full-fledged partner. When Dirk says, "Nobody could be as perfect as she seemed to be and still want something to do with an imperfection like myself," the reader is forced to agree. The looming sense of inevitable tragedy undermines the strength of the core romance and leads to an unsatisfying ending.
I'm really getting into the book and find it every interesting, but several pages in the 100s are starting mid sentence. There are gaps in the story line because of this! I don't know if it's a bug or if it's a error from someone entering the story or however it goes. I just know it needs to get fixed or other people may not be to happy either.
Wish I could get a refund
This book moves at a snails pace. Way too much internal dialogue. I have no idea why some authors write with that style because it’s boring and redundant. It got to where I was just looking for the “ to know something was going to happen. I read about 40% before I decided that I shouldn’t have to work so hard for what should be pleasure. It didn’t help that I read Nine Minutes a few months ago and have been searching desperately for another MC book that could even come close to that book.
What a huge disappointment this book was.
** spoiler alert **
I was provided a copy of Sinner’s Creed in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley; but had I know what the book was about I would have never read it.
First off Dirk is a dick with not a redeeming quality to him. Why Saylor is so enamored with him, is beyond me. Plus, it’s never really explained. Yet she is over the moon infatuated with a cold blooded psycho killer. Dirk isn’t much better. The story is told from Dirk's POV and he is obsessed with Saylor because of her innocence and beauty. The story rambles on and on and frankly for the most part I was bored and just trying to get through it.
Then came the big revelation. SPOILERS from this point forward be warned!!!
Saylor has cancer and the story goes into graphic detail of what going through chemo and those awful side effect entail. I will admit I cried at this and the end of the book. Not for love of the characters suffering but because it drudged up HORRIBLE memories of taking care of my mother. Thanks for that!
I honestly should have stopped when I couldn’t get into the book. I don’t know why I didn’t. I kept thinking, “This has to get better, right?” It didn’t. This story does not have a HEA. It’s heartbreaking and if you have ever lost anybody to cancer and had to help with their illness, be prepared to relive those memories in detail....Sara
