Deacon Reid was born bad to the bone with no intention of changing. A lifetime of law-bending and living on the edge suited him just fine—until his baby sister died and he found himself raising her little girl.Staring down a family history of bad decisions and reaped consequences, Deacon cashes in everything he owns, purchases an auto shop in Half Moon Bay, and takes his niece, Zig, far away from the drug dens and murderous streets they grew up on. Zig deserves a better life than what he had, and Deacon is determined to give it to her.Lang Harris is stunned when Zig, a little girl in combat boots and a purple tutu blows into his bookstore, and then he’s left speechless when her uncle, Deacon Reid walks in, hot on her heels. Lang always played it safe but Deacon tempts him to step over the line… just a little bit.More than a little bit. And Lang is willing to be tempted.Unfortunately, Zig isn’t the only bit of chaos dropped into Half Moon Bay. Violence and death strikes leaving Deacon scrambling to fight off a killer before he loses not only Zig but Lang too.

Fish Stick Fridays by Rhys Ford is an MM mystery/ thriller/love story. All my favourite genres wrapped up in one fabulous package. I have read books before which promised this combination but fell way short of the mark, leaving me very disappointed. There is absolutely nothing disappointing here. I'm one of those readers who likes to guess who the bad guy/s are and work out how things will end. Then I'm disappointed when I'm right. Crazy I know. Fish Stick Fridays managed to keep me guessing throughout the book, and that's a feat in itself. It was incredibly well written, with fully fleshed out MC's that I was utterly invested in from page one.

Deacon Reid is my kind of bad boy motorcycle rider/mechanic. He's had a really tough life but has still managed to hang on to his humanity. His burly, muscled body, surly suspicious nature and often foul mouth, hide a soft heart and a generous nature. When his sister dies leaving her 8 year old daughter in foster care Deacon makes it his life's mission to rescue her and provide his sassy, incredibly bright, but slightly broken, niece Zig, with a stable home and a parental figure she can learn to trust. To do this he buys a repair shop in Half Moon Bay in the hope of starting a new life, safe from the horrors of their pasts.

Lang Harris is the polar opposite of Deacon in so many ways. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Lang owns most of the shops in Half Moon Bay and has resigned himself to a quiet, lonely life as the towns bookstore owner. Lang has deep scars from his past, however, both inside and out, and trusting anyone with his heart is the furtherest thing from his mind. That is until a tutu clad, boot wearing, bossy little girl bursts into his bookstore with the hottest man he's ever seen close on her heels. All bets are off when their eyes meet and the air crackles with sexual tension.

Can two men and an eight year old firecracker, from such different backgrounds find a way to escape their pasts and come together, as the world around them literally explodes? From a fire in the motel Deacon and Zig stayed at on their trip to Half Moon Bay, to the sniper/s taking pot shots at Deacon's repair shop, possibly killing one of his workers. From an explosion in the hairdressing salon next door, to the dead body found in the rubble afterwards. There is no way to know who the enemy or enemies are, who they are really targeting, and whether this unlikely trio can survive long enough to establish their own unique family and HEA.

Fish Stick Fridays is an absolutely riveting read. Sleep becomes overrated once you start this book, so beware. Rhys Ford's writing just keeps getting better and better with every book she publishes and that's saying something. I've  loved all her books so far but this one is a stand out. A fabulous 5 star read. Highly recommended.
