It isn’t easy being a Morgan. Especially when dead bodies start piling up and there’s not a damned thing you can do about it.
Quinn Morgan never quite fit into the family mold. He dreamed of a life with books instead of badges and knowledge instead of law—and a life with Rafe Andrade, his older brothers’ bad boy friend and the man who broke his very young heart.
Rafe Andrade returned home to lick his wounds following his ejection from the band he helped form. A recovering drug addict, Rafe spends his time wallowing in guilt, until he finds himself faced with his original addiction, Quinn Morgan—the reason he fled the city in the first place.
When Rafe hears the Sinners are looking for a bassist, it’s a chance to redeem himself, but as a crazed murderer draws closer to Quinn, Rafe’s willing to sacrifice everything—including himself—to keep his quixotic Morgan safe and sound.
Rhys Ford has done it again. She’s written one of the best Sinners books since the series started. Wait. I think I say that every time!
Truth though, Quinn and Rafe are nearly perfection. A long attraction that never amounted to much for either of them. Just causing them to go in different directions out of necessity, that necessity…. Quinn’ s age!
Rafe has fallen hard and fast from his band and its stardom. Now, he’s just trying to live and stay in control after being out of control for so long. Back home and trying to avoid his adopted family, the Morgans. Mama Morgan will have none of that. Neither will Con, Kane or Quinn. Of course they all have their own reasons and agenda. Only Quinn wants Rafe to clear the noise in his head, to hold the man he’s always dreamed of holding. Will Rafe want him?
Quinn is so full of static and knowledge it’s overwhelming for himself, let alone the people around him. Except Rafe. Rafe has always known how to calm Quinn. To let him talk and feed into the frenzy instead of blowing him off and asking if he’s taken his meds. Poor lamb has always felt trapped, prodded, sheltered and he’s sick of the condescension.
Out of Quinn’s need and Rafe’s understanding, a need grows that can’t be ignored. I love these two together. Seriously sensual and blazing. Creating vivid, bright colors together. Hues of a true and deep love. Rafe is just the man to take on Quinn and his quirks. Someone to listen, not judge and definitely adore and stimulate. They’re beyond compare.
I enjoyed yet another book that sheds light on a person struggling with being different. Different as in, hard-wired differently in the head. I know a person like this. A member of my immediate family and seeing Quinn’s struggle and hardship to put into words his feelings and needs hits so close to home. Loved Quinn. Loved that he had a soul mate in Rafe.
I liked where the Sinners stories have gone. The suspense really brings all the brothers in blue together and keeps readers on their toes. Also, we see a few brothers that were a bit more quiet in the first couple books: Brae and Ian. Between the new faces and a new band, I’m excited to see where Sinners will go from here!
Rhys Ford is a master writer and we are all at her mercy, screaming and pacing for the next book to grace our devices.
