Sicko by Amo Jones
Publication Date: September 1st, 2020
He was my foster brother.
He swore to protect me.
They all failed.
I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain.
But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love.
He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore.
He answers to Sicko.
Holy Moly!! I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to read this book and it was SO WORTH THE WAIT.
I honestly think that this is some of Amo’s BEST work yet. She touches on a lot of hard subjects and taboo material that most authors stray away from, even in the dark romance realm. I love that she is always pushing the limits and with this one the limits are pushed to the edge. She does it in a way that you’re saying WTF, but also seeing what beauty and light could come out of something so dark and treacherous.
Royce is a force to be reckoned with and someone you do not want to cross. He’s your typical Amo alpha male who takes over what he wants and when he wants it. Jade is hands-down my favorite Amo heroine, period. She is put through absolute hell and comes out as this strong, thoughtful and compassionate woman. These two have such a strong connection to one another. No matter what they do from children all the way up to adults, they just can’t seem to get enough of one another.
I so wish that this book was not a standalone. My only gripe about this book is that the end was too quick for me. I felt like the beginning part of the book explaining the situation, Royce and Jade’s dynamic, and everything in between is a great piece but then towards the end it felt very rushed. I know Amo Jones said that this book was just gonna be a standalone but this would’ve been a great series with just Royce and Jade. Not only that there’s so many side characters that I want to know the stories about. I hope in the future that she also writes about them too. I would love to get a whole Wolfpack MC series that would be awesome. I WANT MORE.
This book is by no means for every person. There are going to be people who love dark romance that will not like this book. It’s A LOT. I mean Amo Jones puts in a trigger warning in the beginning of the book, which she never does. It’s a touchy subject, very taboo, and this is just not for everybody. If you don’t like dark romance or are a little iffy about reading this I would definitely consider thinking things through before you read this book. Because even for me who loves dark romance, I had to pause and center myself quite a few times while reading. It definitely pushes some of my limits but overall I loved the story and the characters. If you have it within you to read something very questionable but you’re able to read it with an open mind, this is probably going to be a book that you are really going to like. If you were looking for a book that will push your limits to the absolute max, and then bring it back down to a palatable level, this is definitely something you should read! Highly recommended!
I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
About the Author:
Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
