Review: SICKO by Amo Jones



Author: Amo Jones

Genre: Dark Romance


Release Date: September 1st


He was my foster brother.

He swore to protect me.

He failed.

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.

If I could give this more stars, I would because this book slayed me with the author’s raw and gritty story telling and unique characters.  There is intrigue, heat, and bursts of action and suspense will keep the reader engaged from start to finish.  To say that I devoured this book is an understatement.  Days later, I am still thinking about it!

Be forewarned, this is a dark romance and heed the author’s trigger warning.  It may not be darkest novel that I’ve ever read, but it is the definition of DARK with a big fat capital “D”.   Additionally, it is a forbidden romance that borders alongs the line of being taboo so a few readers may find it a bit uncomfortable in the beginning. I recommend that you stick with it because Sicko truly is a phenomenal read and the author will lead you on an incredible, mind twisting journey.  

Royce and Jade’s relationship may seem unconventional, but the author perfectly conveys the undeniable, passionate, and intense connection between these two.  It is fate.  They are two souls drawn into each other’s orbits and so intertwined that their relationship was inevitable.  Royce/Sicko is everything that I hoped for in an anti-hero.  He is the ultimate bad boy, depraved, and exudes an aura of danger.  He possesses many layers and edges that the author cleverly reveals.  Jade is both fierce and resilient.  I did question some of her behaviors and mindset at times, but nonetheless, she is a strong heroine and her story is heartbreaking.

True to this author’s previous novels, there are some spectacular twists and turns.  As I frequently read dark romances, I was able to decipher one of them towards the beginning of the book, but the way it all unfolds is clever. However, just when you think you have it all figured out - BAM! - the author throws the reader for an unexpected loop with more jaw-dropping revelations. 

Sicko is a fast-paced, dark, and gritty MC romance that is a standalone with no cliffhanger.  The story is enthralling with well-developed & original characters, kindle melting moments, intrigue, and suspense.  If you have loved this author’s previous works, then you will definitely want to check out this book! 

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.

New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.
