Sinner's Creed by Kim Jones

Title: Sinner's Creed 
Series: Sinner's Creed MC #1
Author:  Kim Jones
Publisher: Berkley
Release Date: March 1, 2016

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.

"You're late."

I don't know where to begin. I'm still shellshocked. This book was not what I was expecting.

Our anti-hero is part of an MC. Dirk is a Nomad and his job is to travel and clean up after the MC. He has been murdering people since he was a teenager.  He lives and breaths the Club. He loves the Club and his loyalty is never doubted. His grandfather treated him badly and he learned to defend himself early on. The first time he met Saylor, she was young, seventeen. He helped her when she was stranded with a flat tire. Over a few years, he kept bumping into her. He felt attracted to her in a way no other woman has done before.

"You are all I need."

Saylor Samson believes Dirk is her salvation. Every time she has needed help, he has been there to provide it. He is a quiet man whom she knows doesn't live a legal life, but in her eyes, he's nothing but perfect for her. Saylor places all her trust in him. She gives her heart. 
At some point, I thought she had no backbone and I was getting mad until I found out the truth.

I was not ready for the turn of events in this book. It broke my heart into a thousand pieces. Even writing this review makes me feel sad all over again. 

Kim Jones delivers a powerful story with engaging characters. I know I won't forget it. 

Cliffhanger: No

4/5 Fangs

A complimentary copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Dirk is a nomad for the Sinner’s Creed MC. His job is to eliminate any threat or fix any problem that rises. He’s spent his whole life in the club and alone. When Dirk meets Saylor Samson he can’t forget her. He runs into her several times over 5 years and each time she has left a strong impact on him. 

When Dirk finally decides to take action and make Saylor his, he realizes that she’s more than anything that he expected and that she is running from something even he can’t take care of. 


SINNER’S CREED was fantastic. I will admit that it took about half the book to fully get into it. The story is told from Dirk’s POV and his whole personality is very reserved and a man of few words, so the conversations between him and Saylor were usually one sided. But when he did speak each word he spoke was meaningful. 

I also want to say that even though I saw the whole “problem” coming, it didn’t lessen the effect it had on me. When I got to the big reveal I couldn’t put the book down. 

Kim Jones’ writing is so meaningful. Every line delivered something new to the story. The writing gave the character’s depth that is rare to find in books. I’m truly excited to see what Kim Jones has coming for us in SINNER’S REVENGE.
