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.
One Boundless Stars
I was provided a copy of Sinner’s Creed in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley; but had I know what the book was about I would have never read it.
First off Dirk is a dick with not a redeeming quality to him. Why Saylor is so enamored with him, is beyond me. Plus, it’s never really explained. Yet she is over the moon infatuated with a cold blooded psycho killer. Dirk isn’t much better. The story is told from Dirk's POV and he is obsessed with Saylor because of her innocence and beauty. The story rambles on and on and frankly for the most part I was bored and just trying to get through it.
Then came the big revelation. SPOILERS from this point forward be warned!!!
Saylor has cancer and the story goes into graphic detail of what going through chemo and those awful side effect entail. I will admit I cried at this and the end of the book. Not for love of the characters suffering but because it drudged up HORRIBLE memories of taking care of my mother. Thanks for that!
I honestly should have stopped when I couldn’t get into the book. I don’t know why I didn’t. I kept thinking, “This has to get better, right?” It didn’t. This story does not have a HEA. It’s heartbreaking and if you have ever lost anybody to cancer and had to help with their illness, be prepared to relive those memories in detail.
