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, na├»ve 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.

My Thoughts:  I went into this book knowing that it wasn't going to be a typical MC romance with badass bikers and their women, eventually finding their own version of a happily ever after.  That said, if I didn't know in advance, I would have been beyond distraught at the end.  Knowing, however, that the ending is not your run on the mill HEA, and even preparing myself, I was still completely overwhelmed.  Dirk is definitely not your typical hero by any means, and his story isn't pretty.  The one light in his life is Saylor, and her story is heartbreaking.  This is my first book by Kim Jones, and I was impressed with her writing, but be forewarned, this story isn't for the faint of heart.  If you're looking for something different, then you need not look any further, because you will definitely find it in Sinner's Creed, just be sure to put on your big girl panties and get ready for one helluva ride.
