Sin and Tonic by Rhys Ford - My Thoughts
Sin and Tonic (Sinners #6) - Rhys Ford

Rhys Ford's books never disappoint me.  And this, the last of the Sinners series is no different. 

Miki St John and Kane Morgan finally get their totally happy ending.  Yeah, yeah, they got a happy ending in the first book of the series when they found each other and found their love, but there was so much of their story that still needed to be told.  Especially in Miki's case!

So here we wrap it all up.  We come full circle and everyone is there for the event.  Miki's band members, Kane's siblings and parents and for me, having my favourite of all the Sinners characters, Quinn, play such an important, albeit small, part in the story was the best.  And OMG, Brigid and Donal - they are the best parents ever!!

I have only one problem and that's why I didn't give the book another half star.  Rhys is desperately fond of her characters sneering and smirking.  I hate sneering and smirking heroic characters!  It doesn't make them tough and edgy and cutely cynical.  Sneering and smirking are for villains and icky people, not the ones I love, so...  not 4.5 stars.

But other than that one small (in the whole scheme of things) thing, the book was terrific.  The closing circle of the series was perfect.  And Miki and Kane got their for real HEA.  I'm a happy reader.

Book Review For: The Sinners Touch by Apryl Baker
The Sinners Touch (A Manwhore Series) (Volume 2) - Apryl Baker

3.5 Stars
'The Sinners Touch' by Apryl Baker is book Two in the "Manwhore" series. This is the story of Kade and Angelique. I have read the first book "Touch Me Not" which was really great..but this is easily a standalone book.
Kade is an FBI agent who has come to town to look into a serial killer case. Which lands him back in front of Angelique who he once had a relationship with. Back in the day when he was just starting out as a Cop he went undercover and befriend Angelique brother. There he and Angelique dated and married but when he ended up arresting Angelique brother everything when bad. Kade said some awful things to her and just left.
Now in the present day we learn that Angelique happens to see the serial killer and he is now after her. Kade comes forward to protect her and he knows now is his second chance to win her back. But can Angelique trust him again?
I had a few issues with this book so I am bouncing back between 3.5 stars and 4 stars. I loved the writing and fell in love with the first book so much so I had to read this book right after it.
But this book I just had an issue with Kade who said he forgot that he was married. Granted he was undercover back then, but when he first meets Angelique in the present day, he calls her his wife and tells her that he used his real name in the wedding. That period of their lives was very traumatic and I am sure he would like to forget but I just can't get past that.
Overall this was a great read that I didn't put down...I had to know who things went.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Vegas Baby (Lady Sinners Series, #1) by Katie Kenyhercz
Vegas Baby: Lady Sinners Book 1 (Lady Sinners Series) - Katie Kenyhercz

Katie Kenyhercz scores with VEGAS BABY, the first book of the Lady Sinners Series.  Las Vegas Sinners dance team captain and PR assistant, Miranda Evans, wants to give her squad more credibility.  She comes up with an idea to have the girls play in an intermural hockey league to prove that they are more than pretty faces.   However, to get the go-ahead to proceed, she needs to convince former Sinners Center, Ben Collier, who was paralyzed after an accident on the ice, to become their new coach.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences. 


I like Miranda and Ben.  They have great chemistry.  They are opposites that balance each other out.  However, they also have a lot in common.  For example, they are both hard working and loyal. 


I like Miranda’s character.  She is someone I would want to be friends with.  She is positive and genuine.  She leads by example.  She’s a fighter.  Ben is a complicated and interesting guy.  Hockey was his life, and it was taken away after a horrible injury left him paralyzed.  He is as determined with his therapy as he was with hockey.  He doesn’t want to be pitied. He’s on the anti-social side but a good friend to those he lets in.  


I enjoyed the plot.  It was skillfully executed and believable.  The story line was original and captivating. It contained some valuable life lessons.   VEGAS BABY is the perfect spin-off from the Las Vegas Sinners series to the Lady Sinners series.  I look forward to the next book.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Absinthe of Malice by Rhys Ford
Absinthe of Malice - Rhys Ford

And we return to the world of Sinners with this 5th book in the series.  :)  


The band is out on the road, getting to know each other, learning how to work together as a band and hopefully to bond.  There is music, many adventures, deep thoughts, a few threats and of course, amidst all this band stuff, we get the Morgan men being there for their partners, still learning about them and doing a lot of loving.


I enjoyed it!  The book was mostly a furthering growth of the characters, I thought.  I would have liked to see more of Rafe and Quinn, but I guess when you have 4 band members relationships, 4 couples relationships and then the whole Morgan family relationships to deal with, something's got to give.  


And then... then there's what seems to be the obligatory Rhys Ford cliffhanger.  *SIGH*  I love Rhys' books to bits, but I hate... HATE this need of hers for these damned cliffhangers.  Her books don't NEED them, they're good enough that they don't need this so very obvious hook to go on to the next one.  


That being said... I thought the Sinner's series was finished with this volume, but... I guess not!  *LOL*

Sloe Ride by Rhys Ford - My Thoughts
Sloe Ride - Rhys Ford

The 4th book in the Sinners series stars the 3rd of all those Morgan brothers (I think there are 7 brothers and one sister) and the man destined to become the band's bass player.



I think that Quinn and Rafe just might be my favourite of all the Sinners pairings.  I love how Rafe just gets Quinn and doesn't question the whys or wherefores of it all.  They really are quite perfect for each other.  


I also really enjoyed Quinn's interactions with Miki and Damie.  Although I did wonder when the two of them got so damned prickly (read bitchy.  *LOL*).


This was  a quick read and pretty much a comfort read for me, just what I count on a Rhys Ford to be.
