Lieutenant Connor Morgan of SFPD’s SWAT division wasn’t looking for love. Especially not in a man. His life plan didn’t include one Forest Ackerman, a brown-eyed, blond drummer who’s as sexy as he is trouble. His family depends on him to be like his father, a solid pillar of strength who’ll one day lead the Morgan clan.
No, Connor has everything worked out—a career in law enforcement, a nice house, and a family. Instead, he finds a murdered man while on a drug raid and loses his heart comforting the man’s adopted son. It wasn’t like he’d never thought about men — it’s just loving one doesn’t fit into his plans.
Forest Ackerman certainly doesn’t need to be lusting after a straight cop, even if Connor Morgan is everywhere he looks, especially after Frank’s death. He’s just talked himself out of lusting for the brawny cop when his coffee shop becomes a war zone and Connor Morgan steps in to save him.
Whoever killed his father seems intent on Forest joining him in the afterlife. As the killer moves closer to achieving his goal, Forest tangles with Connor Morgan and is left wondering what he’ll lose first—his life or his heart
Connor is the oldest Morgan, he’s a tough cop and he’s straight. Right?
Forest is another tortured artist, a drummer, who ends up falling for this straight cop, despite his best intentions. And people are out to kill him. Don’t forget that part.
Connor has to come to grips with his feelings and goes to his dad – the best dad that was ever invented (IMHO) – and finds out that love is love and he should go out and get his man. And take care of the bad guys – don’t forget that part.
Forest finds out that Connor has feelings for him and not only that, gets him access to the newly forming band made up of super-stars Damien and Miki from Sinner’s Gin. And he has to stay alive – don’t forget that part.
This is a fantastic addition to the Sinner’s Gin series. I love how the new band keeps growing and the Morgans keep getting more deeply involved with each new member introduced. I love how the Morgan patriarchs help to heal these “boys” and give them the family they so richly deserve.
I can’t wait for the audio version of this to come out! Connor’s voice on the previous two audio books was super-sexy and I’m betting an entire book of him will be drool-worthy.
I also just loved the time Forest spent with Damien and Miki. I really feel like the formation of the band is almost more of the story than the individual love stories, it’s so heart wrenching and powerful. It almost steals the show, but not quite. Why? Super-hot sex scenes. Damn. Rhys Ford can sure write sex scenes. I just love the sensuality she infuses into each one. So deliciously hot.
I am excited for the next installment – I just know Quinn is going to be a riot!
I highly recommend this book, the entire series, the audio versions and anything Rhys Ford has written.
Ok – I’m a fan, so shoot me!
6 out of 5 hearts
Tristan James does the Sinners series and his Irish Cop Voice is to-die-for. Somehow he makes Donal different from Kane different from Connor and let me tell you, Bridg – the mom – is THE BEST! She is absolutely hysterical when she tells Forest she’ll take out his mom with a knife if he wants.
Though you it’s hard to do much better than a Rhys Ford book, listening to the series with Tristan James does just that. I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating – I just love his voice and he makes listening to the story even more interesting by infusing emotion, character development and timing.
I highly recommend this book on audio and give it 6 of 5 hearts.
