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 four 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.

So, let me start off real quick by saying… I really shouldn’t see one single review saying “Ohhh myyy goshhh this book was wayyy to dark!” I mean come on, if the author’s note didn’t give you adequate enough warning, then the “To my darkness. Because the bitch really came out to play with this one.” book dedication sure as hell did!!! With that said, let’s get on with it, shall we?
❝𝑨 𝒘𝒆𝒍𝒍-𝒎𝒂𝒅𝒆 𝒍𝒊𝒆 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒖𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒃𝒖𝒓𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒕𝒊𝒑 𝒐𝒇 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒕𝒐𝒏𝒈𝒖𝒆 𝒘𝒆𝒍𝒍 𝒂𝒇𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒚𝒐𝒖’𝒗𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒆𝒏 𝒇𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒓𝒖𝒕𝒉.❞
Sicko, the epic dark and taboo, new adult, MC romance by Amo Jones is one story you will NEVER forget! If you are looking for a dark and dirty taboo treat, look no further! I’m never truly ready for an Amo read… but I was totally, completely, entirely, wholly, unprepared for Sicko. It’s unlike anything I ever could have imagined. Whatever you think is going to happen, just erase it from your mind because this book is about to blow you away! It’s been two days since I finished reading and I’m STILL absolutely speechless and still have no idea how to put my thoughts about this one in order without giving too much away. All I can say, Sicko is one hell of an epic ride, so grab a couple of tissues along with a change of panties and GET THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!!!
I’m calling it right now, Sicko is my TOP READ OF 2020!
Jade was abandoned as an infant and soon after was adopted by the Kane family who already had a two-year-old son, Royce.
The story starts off with Royce and Jade as teenagers, Royce 18, and Jade 15.
❝𝑰’𝒎 𝒂𝒅𝒅𝒊𝒄𝒕𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝑹𝒐𝒚𝒄𝒆 𝑲𝒂𝒏𝒆, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒊𝒇 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒕𝒓𝒚 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒐𝒄𝒌 𝒎𝒆 𝒊𝒏 𝒂 𝒓𝒆𝒉𝒂𝒃 𝒄𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒊𝒄, 𝑰’𝒍𝒍 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 𝒇𝒊𝒏𝒅 𝒎𝒚 𝒘𝒂𝒚 𝒃𝒂𝒄𝒌 𝒕𝒐 𝒉𝒊𝒎. 𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒄𝒂𝒏’𝒕 𝒔𝒆𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒆 𝒇𝒂𝒕𝒆, 𝒏𝒐 𝒎𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒉𝒐𝒘 𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒅 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒇𝒖𝒄𝒌 𝒊𝒕.❞
Very quickly we see that the relationship between Royce and Jade is much, much, more than just your average brother and sister relationship. Royce is very, VERY protective of Jade, and their interactions with each other straddle the very edge of the line of what’s appropriate for a brother and sister…
Their relationship is very co-dependent so when Royce suddenly disappears without a trace, leaving Jade behind… and she breaks without him.
❝𝑴𝒚 𝒔𝒐𝒖𝒍 𝒏𝒆𝒆𝒅𝒆𝒅 𝒉𝒊𝒎. 𝑼𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒍 𝒉𝒆 𝒍𝒆𝒇𝒕 𝒎𝒆. 𝑨𝒍𝒐𝒏𝒆. 𝑰𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒔𝒆. 𝑰 𝒉𝒂𝒕𝒆 𝒉𝒊𝒎.❞
Four years later… Royce is back. He walks in as if he had never left. But the Royce that walks back into Jade’s life is far from the boy she remembers. Royce has changed since he’s been gone… but he’s not the only one.
❝𝑯𝒆’𝒔 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝑹𝒐𝒚𝒄𝒆 𝑲𝒂𝒏𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒚𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒆. 𝑯𝒆’𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒃𝒊𝒈 𝒃𝒂𝒅 𝒃𝒊𝒌𝒆𝒓 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒃𝒊𝒈 𝒃𝒂𝒅 𝒇𝒓𝒊𝒆𝒏𝒅𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒂 𝒉𝒐𝒍𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒊𝒛𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝑴𝒂𝒓𝒔 𝒊𝒏 𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆 𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒕 𝒖𝒔𝒆𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝒃𝒆.❞
Life hasn’t been kind to Jade since her biggest protector left and Royce is about to find that out the hard way that the girl he left behind no longer exists.
❝𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒔𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒃𝒆 𝒔𝒄𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒅, 𝑫𝒖𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒔𝒔. 𝒀𝒐𝒖’𝒓𝒆 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒔𝒂𝒇𝒆 𝒇𝒓𝒐𝒎 𝒎𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒚𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒆.”
“𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒎𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝒃𝒆 𝒓𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕, 𝑹𝒐𝒚𝒄𝒆. 𝑩𝒖𝒕 𝑰’𝒎 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒂𝒎𝒆 𝒈𝒊𝒓𝒍 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒍𝒆𝒇𝒕 𝒃𝒆𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒅 𝒆𝒊𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓.”
“𝑶𝒉 𝒚𝒆𝒂𝒉? 𝑯𝒐𝒘 𝒔𝒐?”
“𝑰 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒕𝒆𝒆𝒕𝒉 𝒏𝒐𝒘.❞
Shew! You guys… this one was… I’m still speechless. What an epic read. The first few chapters of Sicko were released in the Love Loyalty and Mayhem MC Anthology and although I was soo excited and wanted to get my hands on it ASAP, I held out. I am sooo glad that I did! There is absolutely NO WAY I would have been able to wait for the conclusion of this story!
Amo Jones is a fucking genius and her dark mind without a doubt shined with this one! Sicko was everything you expect from Jones and so, so much MORE. The MC world, the forbidden aspect of Royce and Jade, the dark, depraved, wicked and sinister scenes, the suspense of not knowing WHO…, the steam, I could go on and on… and ON about this book! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Amo Jones is a master storyteller who knows exactly how to write a story that submerges you so, so deep into it that you’ll feel as if you are a part of that world and connected to those characters and that’s EXACTLY what she did with Sicko.
❝𝑻𝒉𝒂𝒕’𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝑱𝒂𝒅𝒆 𝒊𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝒎𝒆. 𝑺𝒉𝒆’𝒔 𝒂 𝒘𝒂𝒍𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈, 𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈, 𝒇𝒖𝒄𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒄𝒉 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒊𝒔 𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒚𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒎𝒚 𝒔𝒐𝒖𝒍 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒄𝒓𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒔. 𝑴𝒚 𝒃𝒐𝒅𝒚 𝒄𝒓𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒔 𝒉𝒆𝒓, 𝒃𝒖𝒕 𝒎𝒚 𝒔𝒐𝒖𝒍 𝒇𝒖𝒄𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒏𝒆𝒆𝒅𝒔 𝒉𝒆𝒓.❞
Royce Kane, he’s protective, he’s possessive, he’s savage, and he’s alpha as alpha can get! But his love and complete devotion to Jade shows us a much different side to him. Although he’s never really “soft” he does show that SHE is his vulnerability. He would do anything for her and he proves that without a doubt. Plus… he calls her ‘Duchess’ *sigh* 😍 Is that not the cutest pet name ever?!
❝𝑺𝒐𝒎𝒆 𝒑𝒆𝒐𝒑𝒍𝒆 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 𝒈𝒆𝒕 𝒐𝒏𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒊𝒓 𝒍𝒊𝒇𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆, 𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒍𝒚, 𝑰 𝒉𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒕𝒘𝒐.❞
Jade. This girl. I can’t even put into words how strong of a character Jade is. At first… that’s not what I thought of her. And I have to say, I was soo wrong about Jade! She’s feisty, she’s fierce, and her quiet strength is something every woman hopes to have. Without a doubt, Jade’s one of my all-time favorite heroines, EVER!
❝𝑯𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒏 𝒘𝒐𝒏’𝒕 𝒕𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒎𝒆, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑯𝒆𝒍𝒍 𝒘𝒐𝒏’𝒕 𝒘𝒆𝒍𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒆 𝒎𝒚 𝒅𝒆𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒔 𝒃𝒂𝒄𝒌.❞
Jade and Royce… the chemistry between them was undeniable even when they were kids. But now that they are all grown up… HOLY HOTNESS! No joke, the steamy scenes between Jade and Royce were some of the HOTTEST scenes I think I’ve EVER seen! No matter the push and pull, the love, the hate, these two are soulmates, and undoubtedly there was nothing that could keep them apart. #YouCantFuckWithFate
The secondary characters… gosh there are so many that were just as important to this story as Royce and Jade. They honestly made this story what it is. Lion, Wicked, and the rest of the guys… I’d love to see what happens now in their lives. (Hint, Hint Amo!!)
If you are a dark romance or MC romance lover, who likes your romance a little on the forbidden/taboo side with a touch of sinister along with it… then you’re going to want to get your hands on this one ASAP. I can’t recommend Sicko enough!
🌪🌪 𝓒𝓵𝓲𝓯𝓯𝓱𝓪𝓷𝓰𝓮𝓻 𝓦𝓪𝓻𝓷𝓲𝓷𝓰: Soo there’s not really a cliffhanger since Sicko is standalone… BUT we met several characters from the Wolf Pack MC that have their own stories to tell. So I’ll give this one two cliffhanger tornados because I have a feeling (or maybe it’s wishful thinking?) that Amo Jones is nowhere even close to being done with the Wolf Pack MC world. Keeping my fingers crossed! 🙏
⚠️ 𝓣𝓻𝓲𝓰𝓰𝓮𝓻 𝓦𝓪𝓻𝓷𝓲𝓷𝓰: Sicko is a DARK romance. As I said earlier, there is an author’s note, AND the dedication lets you know right away that this will NOT be an easy read. There are difficult subjects that could be considered triggers. I can’t list them because if I did it could give away MAJOR spoilers, so if you would like to know more, feel free to DM me!

Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong).
She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic.
She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner 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.
