Shady has spent the last eight years of his life dedicated to the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club. But after losing the man who was both his brother and his best friend, he has a new purpose—to avenge the death of the greatest nomad in Sinner’s Creed history.
His plan is flawless. His mission is simple: seek and destroy. There is no room for distractions—especially a distraction like Diem.
She’s infuriating. Demanding. Complicated. Impossible. And for some reason, Shady can’t stay away. But he only has space in his heart for one love: Sinner’s Creed. And the club always comes first. Always.
Kim Jones has absolutely blown me away with Sinner’s Revenge. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly feel more deeply for the Sinner’s Creed MC, Shady’s story comes along and breaks my heart all over again. I couldn’t have imagined the kind of woman it would take to win Shady’s heart but Kim Jones nails it with Diem. She is his perfect match and so much more. The instant connection, scorching hot chemistry, and effortless banter between them made their story utterly addictive. Overflowing with raw emotion, Shady and Diem’s journey is unlike any I’ve encountered before. It was hurtful, passionate and maddening in the very best ways leaving my head reeling and my heart a bit bruised. Kim Jones’ writing is powerful, bringing to life the vibrant MC family she has so carefully crafted and making me feel this story deeply and unexpectedly. Sinner’s Revenge is undoubtedly one of the best books I’ve read this year and certainly one of my all-time favorite MC reads.
“And when her eyes lock on mine, there is no doubt—no fear, no walls, no ice, and no indifference. They tell me everything. They burn with desire and trust.”
I honestly didn’t know what to expect when it came to Shady. From what we know of him in Sinner’s Creed, he is mysterious, haunted, and unfailingly loyal – totally intriguing, to say the least. As Kim Jones unraveled Shady, I found myself steamrolled. There were so many layers to this character that I never expected and I loved the way in which Kim Jones brought them to light over the course of this novel. Shady’s relationship with Diem revealed an entirely new side to him. Not only was he deliciously filthy, but also inherently protective and fiercely loving. Diem was a breath of fresh air for Shady, allowing him to step beyond the darkness he seemed so content to resign himself to. With Diem, Shady could laugh, tease, flirt, and let go – a beautiful contradiction to this otherwise stoic and angry man. I loved the dichotomy Kim Jones created between Shady’s desperate need for vengeance and his deep desire to be loved. His dark and light were wholly enthralling and it was this complexity of character that ultimately had me falling hard for Shady.
“In another life, I could have made you happy. Really happy. I’d have done things different. I’d have made you my queen.”
Diem is the kind of heroine that is easy to invest in and still she takes you by complete surprise. I instantly loved her voice – strong, sassy, and sure. It was obvious from the moment they met that she would hold her own with Shady and I was definitely not disappointed. Diem was feisty and independent, yet there was a hint of something else beneath the bravado, a depth that made this character so enchanting. Through Diem’s relationship with Shady, Kim Jones revealed a surprising vulnerability that allowed me to connect significantly with this character. Diem’s struggle to relinquish control to Shady eventually exposed her uncertainty and insecurities, making this character feel entirely genuine. As the story progressed Diem proved herself to be a force of nature all her own, able to handle Shady’s darkness and fit flawlessly into his life. With so many facets to this character it would be easy to lose sense of her, but Kim Jones never falters, expertly pulling together the many sides of Diem into one cohesive, memorable, badass heroine.
“It takes a helluva lot more strength to walk away than it does to stay.”
I love an author that can make me feel at home in her fictional world only to rip the rug out from under me with an incredible plot twist. Kim Jones has done just that with this novel. Just when I thought I knew Shady and Diem, this story took a turn that left me speechless in an amazing way. Sinner’s Revenge brought forth so many emotions from me. I laughed, blushed, and cried, completely consumed by all of the feelings Shady and Diem’s story evoked. From the natural pacing and amusing exchanges to the plot progression and character development, everything about Sinner’s Revenge was done with careful thought and planning to deliver something truly special. Kim Jones’ writing shows incredible growth, her thoughtful prose and witty dialogue consuming me completely and leaving me wanting more from this talented author. Sinner’s Revenge is exquisitely crafted, a masterful mix of heart-pounding action, raw emotion, gritty dialogue, and toe-curling steam. Kim Jones delivers her best novel yet with Shady and Diem’s unforgettable story.
