I was drunk, angry, and spoiling for a fight. The crowded bar was the perfect distraction until all hell broke loose.

She walked in. My world collapsed.

It wasn't supposed to happen like this. I never thought I'd see her again. Rae never should have been there that night . . . but 5 years of regret, loss, and vengeance have waged war inside me.

This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books.

I LOVE MC romances with a passion, I love the whole tattooed, bearded bikers thing, just hits all the spots for me. Plus the music you link up with this kind of scenario is inevitably right up my street. I also love Nikki Landis books period. She writes in a way that pulls me in and holds me captive until the book is over and I just couldn’t wait to read and devour this one which just sounded like it had everything I wanted.

What a wonderful piece of work , this book was filled with lots of amazing characters and Edge is intense sexy fierce and bloody gorgeous , he’s a caged animal whom will do anything to protect the woman he loves even if it means hurting her , Rae is a strong willed sassy woman , whom has suffered the unthinkable , my heart broke so many times reading this and I wanted to scream at the author, this book was absolutely beautifully written and I’m sitting anxiously waiting for book 2 , if you’re lo ...more
What has Nikki Landis been up to? How about creating another genre bending read that is guaranteed to entertain from its first page to its final word. SINS OF THE FATHER is a deliciously dark second chance romance that is raw, edgy and brilliantly unexpected!

Rival biker gangs, hearts and promises broken, dreams shattered, secrets buried and through it all, two souls will have a second chance at love if trust can be re-built. It all started with the nightmares created by the sins of two fathers, leaving an incredible

This is sort of a genre mashup. Contemporary romance, MC Club, and Sci-fi thrown into one book. It was an entertaining read, but I was left with a few questions at the end. Pete and RJ spend the entire book willing to risk their lives to protect Rae and with Pete, part of that was because his father and hers asked him to and the other part was because he was in love with her. With the twist at the end, I was kind of wondering how none of them knew except Mack. There's some time travel elements a ...more

Let me start by saying that I absolutely adored this book. It was so different. So unexpected. So brilliantly done that I could not put it down. I'm a huge Nikki Landis fan and this book is just another one of hers that I fell in love with. The bikers were tough. Big and burly with beards and tattoos and yet, soft and tender. Rae was a delightful character. Smart and sassy and I just couldn't get enough of her and Pete's story. Of the way Pete (edge) was willing to risk everything to protect her ...more

This was the first book I'd read by Nikki Landis. it definitely will not be the last. What an exciting read! Sins of the Father was action packed from the first page to the last.

The characters are well developed and nothing short of amazing. Rae is a determined, sassy, loveable young woman that has not had an easy life as of yet. Edge is a rough and tough biker who is willing to risk everything, including his own life, to protect Rae. This is in part because he was asked to by both her father a

Page turner

I hated every time I had to put this book down and adult. Rae anf Pete share a love that is intense, sexy as hell, yet troubled. The writing is strong, the characters are raw, and the story is unique. I love that it wrapped several genres together and am intrigued with the alien storyline that will need to be explored in further books. It was the ending that killed me. There are some awesome things coming from this series and I can't wait.

PLOT: 5 / 5
FLOW: 5 / 5

I want to explain why I have rated this book so highly. Usually books like this are what I call surface suffers. They have wonderful characters, great plot lines, and amazing world building and yet they do the minimum to draw the reader in, they give just enough to tell the story but they do not go the extra mile to really connect you with the book...surface suffers.

My review is 4.5 stars.

Whenever Nikki's books are concerned, few genres always comes into the mind automatically - Fantasy, Paranormal, Supernatural, Romance, Thriller. I'm thinking now to create a new genre comprising all the above 5 and name them Nikki's Genre. She writes romance in the harshest scenario and that feels like a breath of fresh air. And she repeated the same thing again very beautifully.

This book from the first page to the last page is absolutely amazing.

I have to admit I was leery about reading an MC book since my dad and first husband were both members of actual MC clubs and there is nothing sexy about them. Not. A. Single. Thing. However, I love everything by Nikki Landis and knew she would make it hot and fun. Thankfully I was right. Most of the men were not like bikers at all. They were sweet. Loving. Genuine good-hearted men. There was even one in the ‘bad’ club who I wanted to see more of.

Rae and Peter have the sweetest story.

Not Your Ordinary MC Story

Sins of the Father does a great job of leading you down a path you think you already know, only to throw in an extraordinary twist at the end. There are several hints along the way, yet the reveal is quite spectacular. This story follows several different viewpoints of the main characters, sometimes repeating a scene from a different perspective, but it really lets you see into the minds of the main players. The love triangle between Rae, Pete, and RJ is heartbreaki

You can always count on this author to give you a great story. Writing in first point of view allows the reader to feel and experience how and what the characters are experiencing.

I'd never read an MC novel before, but to add to that, there are additional genres that sneak up on you and slap you across the face. Yes, there are hints, but the explosive way the reader finds out is Landis showing her talent. I liked that Rae, the main female character, was not meek or too submissive to her 'alpha

Edge and Rae are the ultimate second chance romance couple! This was one helluva MC story with non stop action, adventure and suspense. I loved how throughout the story we’re experiencing both Rae and Pete’s POV’s you get to connect more with both the characters. The paranormal mix was one that had me hanging on wanting more and more. Without giving any details away I will say that this was a great read and I’m curious to see what’s in store for the club and everyone. Grab your copy now and come ...more

If you are a fan of MC romance you will love this story about Pete and Rae. It is fast paced and filled with action. Pete made a promise to protect Rae and he kept his word. He is deeply in love with her. This is an emotionally charged story filled with so many layers that you have to peel away to get to the heart of the story. The story is captivating as it is addictive.

Very detailed storyline and a surprise ending

There's so much going on in this story and the ending was very strange. This story revolves around more people than the main couple Peter Harding and Rae Stenson. This story also revolves around two motorcycle gangs. They are "Satan's Outlaws" and the "RRMC" which stands for Ravaged Riders Motorcycle Club. The Outlaws are a vicious group of men with a depraved leader Stricker. The RRMC are not as bad, but the leader Rafe is a very bad man.
Hmmmm. I'm really struggling with rating this book, though I'm definitely going to put it as 4 stars on Amazon, since they consider 3 stars a negative review. I loved some aspects of the story but was a little frustrated by others. However, I want to state right now that this is a well written and entertaining book. I cared about the characters and am looking forward to continuing with the series and finding out more about the RRMC, RJ, Jake and others.

My issues with this book though

Peter "Edge" Harding grew up around the MC world but he promised his dad at a young age that he would never join. Yet when it came down to saving the life of the girl he loved he joined up so her life could be spared and she could be safe away from the Ravage Riders MC (RRMC) and the Outlaws MC.

Rae Stenson was in love with Peter since they were kids and he promised he would always keep her safe. But in order to save her, he had to leave her after everything he did for her in the past

I was given this ARC for my honest review. It so exceeded my expectations by 100%.
Rafe was the president of the Ravage Riders MC, Edge, the Vice President. Pete "Edge" Harding was given the name "Edge" by Rafe because he was always on edge, ready to snap at any moment in a rage. There was bad blood between the two, but as the old saying goes, "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." Edge used to be a different guy, one who gave a shit and cared about doing the right thing but doi

I was tingling with excitement when I was given the opportunity to read this work from author Nikki Landis. The cover had me at hello. I had not read any of her writing previously and was thrilled she allowed me the opportunity to read my first full length MC book.
Then I read the first few pages, and admittedly, I was on the fence.
All of the pre read book excitement drained away in the initial violence. Honestly, I did not know what to expect between the pages of a Motorcycle Club romance and

This was a story rooted deep in secrets and danger. As any good MC story will be, we get a good bit of fighting and death between rival MC's, but it's all due to the secret that is only known to a few head members of different MC's and two father's who were killed before they could tell their secret to their children. What is the big secret? Well, you have to read to find out that tiny tidbit!

This is a fascinating and well-written story that refuses to be confined to a single genre. It's been a while since I've encountered a fictional couple whose love was tested as strongly as that of Pete and Rae, but this story really touched me deeply. There is plenty of action, and I was hooked on the first page. The changing POV allows the reader to get into the heads of the characters and really connect with them. Character development was superbly done. Pete does a lot of things that should r ...more

I’m not sure what I expected from this book but I can truthfully say I was more then pleasantly surprised. Such raw emotions are rarely encountered . Rea and Pete’s story pulled me in so deep I found it hard to stop reading so I can get some sleep. Life as members of MC club has danger lurking at every corner but in this book the author describes growing up in this lifestyle and all the challenges that come with it. The protagonists are three dimensional and well developed. The story is action p ...more

Sins of the father is a fast-paced book and action-packed, doesn't seem like there was a page that I turned that didn't have some action happening. Nikki Landis is one of those authors that can make you really love or extremely hate one of her characters just by using her words to describe them and the way they hold them self or even their little tics. So in my case, it's always a love-hate relationship with these fantastic people.

Sins of the Father is another excellent read by Nikki Landis. Only she is capable of spinning a tale within a tale and doing it so expertly. Mixing just the right amount of Sci-Fi/Time travel with a HOT MC romance. I never wanted this book to end!

Rae and Pete were not your typical high school sweethearts. Being, that they had an unbreakable bond that they thought would withstand the test of time. Until, the unexpected happenes and they're suddenly ripped apart...

Establishing a potentially fascinating story

Aliens, time travel and bikers? A veritable feast I thought. The author has done her research when it comes to MCs, which makes a huge difference to the story. The switch between Rae and Pete as narrator is done cleanly for the most part. The pace of the narrative means the narrator switch has to be within a chapter, but it is clearly labelled.

Storywise, the growing relationship between Rae and Pete has a hint of Romeo and Juliet. I wan
