Antichrist by Amo Jones–New Release and Review

AVAILABLE NOW

Oh. My. Fudging. Antichrist. Amo Jones, why? Why do I consciously choose to read your books again and again when I know you are going to break me over and over yet again? The answer is simple, you are a genius to the highest level. You know exactly what to write and how to write it. Bravo!!

Nik/Antichrist and Meraki are DEFINITELY not your traditional Heroes and heroines, even for a dark romance. They are toxic, darker than dark, and maybe slightly psychologically skewed. This book will rip you apart, leave you for dead, erroneously throw you back together only to rip you apart yet again…slowly and painfully!

The beginning was hit or miss for me. There were some timeline issues/jumps that made me feel slightly disconnected from the story, which made Amo’s writing style slightly different. However, the further you read the more it grabbed you and very quickly engulfed you in toxicity and demented pleasure all while carrying you along until you hit that ending. WTF do I say about that ending, except holy crap, you are good Amo Jones, you are good.

There are trigger warnings, many triggers, but for me, I wished I didn’t read them, because I was anticipating what would come next. I do not want to ruin your experience, so I will just tell you that dark can be done badly, or dark can be done so well that it will leave your rotten little heart happy. You will be confused and look for logic between the covers, but don’t, because you won’t find it. What you will find is Ms. Jones doing what she does best, messing with your mind and heart, while questioning if your soul is intact.

Meraki Mallory lived two lives.

The one that everyone thought she did, and the one she worked hard to hide.

She burned with her demons instead of running from them,

But when Niko Davis rode back into town with a bag full of secrets, she knew she would need to start hiding them instead.

Niko knew her inside and out, and if he saw even a smidge of her soul,

He would see that she was no longer the girl he left behind…

When the president of the New York chapter of the Seven Knights MC dies,

He passes the gavel down to Niko, but unknown to anyone else, that’s not the only thing he left him.

Niko fights for what’s his, and he’s only ever claimed one person in his life – Meraki.

So when he rips away the walls she built around herself with his bare teeth,

The secrets that she has so fiercely hidden away all of these years suddenly bleed onto the four unmarked graves laid out in front of his steel-cap boots…

It started with a bond that destroyed everyone around them,

And it ends with blood…

November 2021 Wrap-Up

November was one of those months where I didn’t have a ton of free time but I also didn’t get to read a lot either. What I did read though was SO GOOD, I had major book hangovers!

Books read:

In Silence She Screams by Amo Jones: I swear I can never get enough of Amo’s writing. She is gritty, dark, LOVES to push boundaries and I’m here to say, ‘Yes, Queen, I’m here for all of it.’

Used by Selena Moore: After the MAJOR book hangover, I was looking for something that was entertaining, yet easy to read. Used fit that bill.

Sinning Like Hell by Trilina Pucci: St. Simeon Prep duet completion and I’m still drooling over Calder and loving Sutton. This was another book hangover moment. The highs/lows and everything in between still lingers with me.

Totally Schooled by Nicole Dykes: A little teacher-student taboo for anyone? Umm, yes please!!

North Of The Stars by Monica James: Whoa. If historical romance is not your thing, this may not be for you, however, I’m not a HR fan, but ended up completely invested and loved it! Viking…✔️, Alpha…✔️, Ferocious Fighter…✔️. Beware, it does end on a cliff.

Step-Santa by Logan Chance: Who doesn’t want a little taboo Santa to read about this time of year? Come on, be honest!! Short, sweet, read with steam to keep you entertained.

Secret Projects: Oh. Em. Gee! I can’t wait for y’all to read these two little projects. SO GOOD, it will leave you salivating for more!!

Sancte Diaboli (book 1) by Amo Jones

Sancte Diaboli was ingrained into my brain and I could not wait to read it. This was
Bran Bran’s book with TEKC. He was back in all his quietness, aloofness, and piercing’s.

So, I have a question. How many of you are into puzzles? I’m thinking the 5,000 pieces and maybe higher. Sancte Diaboli is akin to doing a mammoth puzzle with small pieces. Amo is so good at her writing, that she inadvertently will drop those teeny tiny breadcrumbs throughout the whole book. The funny thing is these little nuggets will never directly lead you to the ending but keep you on the path that you need to focus on. She is so good at this that she’s bad😈. It’s wicked torture to keep us on the hook for the next book, but I swear she loves it.

Now, I knew before going in that there was a cliffhanger, so I thought I was semi-prepared. Well, thank goodness I wasn’t betting money over the cliffhanger, because all I could think of was, huh…whoa…OMFG! So much so that I read the ending four times and I was still shook!! That cliffhanger, you will never see coming! I had a SERIOUS BOOK HANGOVER for four days afterward. I was scheduled to start another book, but I couldn’t do it! I kept wandering around and replaying all the scenarios and situations in my head.

Readers have dubbed Amo as ‘Queen’ for a reason. She is a master at her craft. I was amazed, stunned, flabbergasted, and knocked completely off my axis after reading Sancte Diaboli. How does she take such simple individual words, yet meld them together perfectly to form an utterly amazing, multi-layered storyline with specific plot points, timelines, and consistent writing style? I don’t know, but I will gladly step forward to read any book she writes!! Congratulations, Queen Amo! Another book was exceedingly written!

***Side note: Ms. Jones is a dark romance writer!!! So, if this scares you, Sancte Diablo my not be for you, but if you’re up for it, you might learn a thing or two about ladders!***

Sicko by Amo Jones–Review

MAJOR. BOOK. HANGOVER!! Amo has taken her writing to another whole level!! Sicko is by far my new favorite read of Amo’s. It is so wickedly bad that you may question your morals. I LOVED IT!!

You know that feeling when you have received news that just shocks you senseless and drops to the pit of your stomach? Yeah, that feeling of whoa!! I’ve been done reading Sicko for a few days now and I’m still processing.

Before going any further, though, beware of the warnings, because Amo went and did it again. She went dark and I mean D-A-R-K. I’ve read, Midnight Mayhem and The Elite Kings series, and was still more flabbergasted, shocked, and utterly intrigued to want more from Sicko. The depravity that she wrote so her characters could come to life is remarkable. I, truly, felt as if I was living Jade’s life along with her and experienced all the things happening to her.

Then there’s Royce. Royce is just that yummy, delicious, a@@hole with a viciously dark side. Despite this, Royce somehow has wormed his way into my soul. He has a cruelly, deviant side which helps maintain the solid, impenetrable brick wall persona that encompasses Sicko.

Characters aside, Sicko (the book), is capable of tornado ensuing emotions. The twists and turns you will not see coming. Physically, I felt as if I was on a Sling Shot ride at a fair and developed lifelong whiplash. Emotionally, I was a wreck. I cried, I cringed, I got mad, I was horrified, and yet, I felt the love.

Amo’s pacing, storyline, and plotline were all consistent and solid.  Ms. Jones has a knack for taking you to the edge of your comfort zone and pushing just that little bit further so you’re uncomfortably comfortable. I went from horrified to in awe and in love to blushing like a virgin on prom night.

Sicko has permanently attached itself to my soul. The topics and situations that were presented are jarring, but also enlightening. This is what makes it a top read for me. Royce, Jade, the MC’s, and storyline will stay with me forever!!

Crowned By Fate by Amo Jones–Review

95468608_2876722135752900_4642622161054334976_o

Ok, everybody, visualize this. A young woman stares out into a vast countryside setting. She sees nothing but one tree and open spaces, so she decides that she is going to plant a tree. Now this would not be any normal tree, it would be her storytelling tree. This tree is named Crowned By Fate, which is eloquently written along the trunk. A book that she is pondering on writing.

As she watches her special tree grow, she notices that the trunk and leaves are strong, sturdy, and beautiful. Due to a special planting procedure, she can see what the root ball was doing. The root ball was twisted, tangled, anything but pretty with roots that go their own ways. These roots do anything but follow a predestined plan, they are confusing and intriguing, and this young woman finally got through her writer’s block courtesy of a tree.

Her books are anything but traditionally normal, but she is known for the sudden twists, turns, highs and lows, storylines that are entangled with others. Through the dark side, the beautiful is seen through her unconventional storytelling. I say this every time, ‘I don’t know how her books could get better and top this’ and every time they do, and she proves me wrong. She is dark, her storylines are convoluted, yet, through whatever pain, sadness inducing, ugliness the unconventional H/h in her books are beautiful. She may write dark romance, but all words from beginning to end are devastatingly exquisite.

Crowned By Fate is Amo Jones newest release. After a jaw dropping, hold you breathe for three years kind of cliffhanger ending, I could not even begin to imagine where this story would go. According to my husband, there was a lot of ‘WTF’, ‘Holy Sheet’ and 😲 coming from me as I read. The story of Isa and Bryant broke me. I was bawling. The amount of life they went through is simply heartbreaking. As bad as Bryant’s ‘life’ appeared to be, Isa, my poor homegirl Isa, went through multiple lives to end up where she did. Remember that twisted and tangled root ball and how you could not follow it, well, welcome to the world of Amo Jones. Do yourself a favor and don’t even try to guess the ending. You would not be able to figure it out. So many ups/downs, twists, and turns and and a little mischief thrown in.

CBF is a 5 ‘I didn’t want to ruin her. I just wanted to love her’ stars!!
