Does anyone know who did Miki's tattoo?
Sin and Tonic (Sinners #6) - Rhys Ford,Tristan James Mabry

If you've read this series and specifically this book than you know what tattoo, I'm talking about. But if you haven't I'll just share with you that Miki St. John has a tattoo and it's not pretty...actually it's a reminder of the life that he lived as a child. A life that no child should ever have and through out this series we learn about that life and the lives of those who have come to be Miki's family but it's here in the final book of Rhys Ford's 'Sinner' series that we get the answers to so many questions. Questions that have led me from story to story looking for the answers only to have one question replaced by another whenever an answer has been found.

 

I've loved this series heart and soul from start to finish so much so that I've read it all...more than once and when that wasn't enough I turned to the audio books for more and that my friends is what has me clicking away on my keyboard right now...I mean really how could I resist the chance to follow this last part of the journey one more time...with Tristan James once again bringing the men and women of 'Sinners' to life...the answer is 'I couldn't'. Mr. James has been the narrator for these stories from the beginning and along with the fact that he is absolutely one of my favorite narrators having the same narrator for every one of these stories has been so incredibly delightful. I couldn't imagine a better audio experience than this.

 

I'm going to borrow from my original review of this book at this point just to highlight how much I enjoyed this series and how absolutely delightful it is to  listen to the voices that Tristan James has given to the characters in these stories and have that automatic recognition of who you're listening to because it's been the same narrator from the very beginning...

So imagine if you will hearing these quotes being not only spoken by the characters but in a voice that you effortlessly recognize because you've heard that voice in each of the previous stories and it's always been the same voice...

From Brigid as she speaks to Miki about Dude the dog...
"I'm sure the dog cares, just in his own way," she said with a laugh.

to Edie, their manager...
"Now do you understand why you need me?" She'd said to the shocked band members. "You just lost an argument with the person who is willing to go to the mat for you. Imagine how far you'll get when you go head-to-head with somebody who wants to bleed you dry?..."

to Donal...
"Then maybe what ye need to hear from me is that no matter who comes into your life, I will not let them hurt ye, and I will always be there when ye call out for your da."

and everyone in between...but ultimately there is Kane...
"...You mean more to me than my badge and the dead. I love you. And if I have to, I would give up everything I've become--everything I've accomplished--just to hold you if you need me."

if reading these words left me reaching for the tissues than have no doubts that I was sitting once again with tissues at hand as listened to them in the voices that I've come to think of as Brigid, Donal, Miki and Kane's.

 

And as I also said in my review for the eBook...

It's been a hella' good ride with this series and I really can't think of anything more to say other than if you haven't read it check it out because you really don't want to read this one without having read the previous books and if you've read those books then I can't imagine that you won't love this final installment in the 'Sinners' series.

Thank you, Ms. Ford for writing what has become one of my absolute favorite series...EVER!!!

and thank you Tristan James for doing it all justice!

Sinful
Sin and Tonic (Sinners #6) - Rhys Ford

This is book #6, in the Sinners series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To fully enjoy and understand, I recommend reading this incredibly sexy series in order.

 

Miki and Kane's story continues with Miki working on things that bother him.  This is a hard move for him, as facing demons of the past always bring pain and suffering.  Wanting to be in a future with Kane without further issues, he is really trying.

 

Kane has stumbled into a case that is going to bring pain to his very sweet love.  When he delves further, he starts to worry that being involved is worth it.  The past always seems to knock on another door that no one wants to open.

 

I absolutely loved this book.  Even with how hard it was to read, I loved and devoured every word.  I often had tears streaming down my face, but this was an epic and very worth it ending to a truly phenomenal series.  My heart loved every cross over pieced in, and hope that we visit their world int he future.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

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.
