Series Review // Sinful Souls MC by Amo Jones

November 13, 2023

Today's flashback is the Sinful Souls MC by Amo Jones. This series was my first read from Amo Jones (well, it was her debut) and had me falling in love with her potential. I could feel her get stronger with each and every book. This is a contemporary MC romance series with a bit of a dark vibe. It tackles sensitive issues so it's not for everyone. But if you enjoy angst and pushing boundaries a bit, you'll be entertained. Note that the following reviews were written in 2016, so take them with a grain of salt.

Have you ever read these books? Are you interested?

1. Perilous Love

What happens when you’re the daughter of the most feared assassin known to mankind?

After having to flee her family home in New Zealand at age eight, Alaina Vance knows very little about her parents. She now lives an uncomplicated life—in her final year of college—with her hardest decision being what drink to order.

That is until she meets Zane Mathews. The sexy and domineering president of Sinful Souls MC.

Her whole world as she knew it starts to flip before her very eyes. As everything that she thought she knew was really nothing at all.

Rating - ★★★

This book had tremendous potential. Based on the fact that it's this author's first piece of work, I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt. So here goes...

The story was good. However, it had some glitches. Everything read very textbook. Very clinical. Emotions didn't factor here and therefore I didn't feel anything for the characters. Even during intense scenes, I just didn't feel anything. There wasn't much detail given about anything. Words were thrown around and I had to make sense of them. From one chapter to the next, it was pretty hard to follow what was going on. Time passed (or didn't pass) and there was nothing to indicate that. With regards to time, there is one matter I can use as a frame of reference.
There were many times that I was confused about things that were going on because things were written in a confusing way.

I like details. The more information I'm given, the greater the chance of me connecting with the characters. We meet Zane's mom and find out his dad passed. How??? Alaina mentions she needs to focus on finals that are coming up, but school isn't done for another 2 months.
It was crazy how much information was given and not given.

I get that this book was short, that the author was new, but even the "sex scenes" were lackluster. Insert A into Tab B. Lick Section C.

I wanted more. I can see that this author has the potential for more. I'm willing to read book 2 simply because I have a feeling that the writing can only get better with time. I could see the strength in this writer's efforts and I would like an opportunity to see it shine through her future work.

2. Intricate Love

Vicky Abrahams has a tendency to get herself into tricky situations. But after a crazy spring break with one of her best friends, she has a bigger situation she needs to deal with—Blake Rendon.

Blake is part of the Sinful Souls MC. He has never been interested in anything serious with any woman, until Vicky. This interest results in him taking time to figure out his feelings for her.

Is it too late once he does?

Has Vicky already moved on?

Tired of all the secrets that almost broke her, she has every reason to be upset. But under it all, there’s no one quite like Blake fucking Rendon.

Rating - ★★★

I was right. I knew that this author's writing could only get better with time. With practice. This story was much more cohesive than the first.

To be honest, I didn't much like Blake or Vicky. The threesome scenes really threw me off and made me doubt the seriousness of their affection for one another. I think they were great side characters, but not strong enough to hold their own story, which was proven with this book. It just wasn't strong. It had parts that were interesting, but not enough to warrant their own plot.

I still found the issue of time relativity in this installment. I'm not sure how this problem could have been fixed because I'm no expert, but it wasn't a huge problem. I really liked that we got to see more of the other characters, such as Alaina, Zane and Ade. And this book did a really good job of going over the events of the first book without making it redundant. It provided a fresh and alternate perspective to what had happened.

I can only expect that book three is going to be even better. The writing definitely keeps improving with each book.

3. Tainted Love

Kalie-Rose is that girl.
She's that girl who calmed the storm within Ade Nixon.
She attained the unattainable.
She silenced his demons with her innocence.

Ade Nixon is the Vice President of Sinful Souls MC. His Hulk-sized body covered in tattoos and piercings - along with his don't give a fuck attitude - screams, "I'll suffocate you in your sleep". And he would.

Kalie-Rose is a popular dancer living in Hollywood Hills, she dances for some of Hollywood's elite. After giving Ade her viginty on a silver platter two years ago, a wedding brings them back together. Even if only for a short amount of time.

Rating - ★★★

This was definitely the best book out of the series. The writing, the character development, the details and descriptions, the scene portrayal, the feels... much better.

However, I didn't like the main characters. Crazy right?! Crazy, but true. Kalie was my least favourite of all the female leads and that's saying something. She was lacking something for me that I couldn't quite put my finger on. I constantly felt like she was putting on an act, whether to appear innocent or provocative, depending on the situation. So I don't think I got a good picture of who her character really was.

I liked things about Aidan/Ade. I liked his ruthlessness. He was just as coldblooded as Zane and Blake, which I enjoyed the heck out of. His alpha ways were cool too. But he lacked dimension. There was so much potential for this character and it fell flat to me.

The suspense was on point. The scenes with Alaina and Kalie were full of feels. So the technique definitely improved in this book. I would be interested in reading future work from this author because I can absolutely see it getting better with time.


  1. I will be honest Amo Jones terrifies me but I do love MC so I might try her through these books! Appreciate this post. I do love authors that push boundaries.

    1. Keep in mind that it's her debut work so it's rough, but you can definitely see the potential in her writing.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment because I absolutely love getting and giving them!
