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.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books, (READ review) and Divine Magazine (AUDIO review) I was gifted both the ebook and the audio book to review.

Quinn is younger brother to Kane and Connor. He is a professor at a college, and never had any plans to follow in his dad and brother's footsteps to join the boys in blue. Rafe is an honorary Morgan, attaching himself to Connor and Sionn probably saved him. Rafe ALWAYS noticed Quinn, but Connor scared him off and Rafe went on tour. Now, having broken himself and put himself mostly back together, Quinn and Rafe come face to face again, and its like the intervening years never happened. Someone, however, isn't too pleased that Quinn isn't at his feet, and bodies start turning up, putting both Quinn and Rafe in danger.

Alrighty! Book 4 in this series, but you don't need to read the other three, however I would recommend that you do. Because Kane, Connor and Sionn and their *better* halves all play a huge part here, and their stories pop up along the way. **I loved that!**

Quinn and Rafe are made for each other, they really are. Quinn is so different to his brothers and cousin, and it stood out, so much so, I wanted to cry for Quinn, when his past started to creep out, and how he reacted to Rafe going on tour. I loved that Rafe called Quinn babe, baby, magpie, very early on, before they got it together. I didn't get the magpie name though, so I'm glad it got explained in the story. Their love is evident right from the beginning.

I didn't get who dunnit til the book revealed it, and I was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off base with that one!

I don't usually add text from the book, but I highlighted two lines, one from Miki, when Damien says they need to start writing more love songs 

" Because I'm not ready to share Kane with anyone else. With any stranger. He's mine. I've not had enough mine in my life yet. When I do, I'll start writng love fucking songs"

And one from Rafe, when he is trying to explain to Quinn how he feels about him 

" All this time, I've been trying to fill this hole inside of me, fucking around, drugs and shit, when what I should have done was just come home - and find you"

I needed to add these. I really did.

Before each chapter, there is a few lines from a song, or a few lines of conversation. I KNOW these were there when I listened, I honestly did, but I NOTICED them here. And I loved them. Ms Ford should publish the songs on their own :-) 

This is the first book in this series I have READ. I listened to the other three, and I could hear Tristan James reading the story to me, as I went along, but I couldn't hear him saying the voices right, I know I didn't. So I need to LISTEN to this one as well.


AWESOME addition to this series, keep them coming, please!


5 full stars

**AUDIO REVIEW**


I also had the amazing opportunity to review this book in AUDIO. I am soooooooooooooooooo glad I did!

Tristan James narrates, as he does all the Sinners Gin books. The man does the best job!. I mean, BEST JOB! The narration of this series awesome, this one? STAND OUT. It really is. 

Quinn's brain runs away with itself, and, while reading, you get it, but listening, just brings it all up a notch. You get why his brain runs away, why Rafe brings colour to his world, and why they love each other so much. While it did occur to me while reading, it hit me in the face as I was listening, just how perfect Rafe and Quinn are to each other. Those little things that Rafe does for Quinn, how much Quinn needs Rafe in his world. 

Tristan James' narration is clear and concise, with all the characters having the right voices from book to book. When I read this, I heard James narrating in my head, but I knew, I absolutely KNEW I was doing the voices all wrong. As soon as I started listening, I was a happy bunnie again. It was like I had come home. *insert sigh!* All the drama, the emotion, the love and the pain comes across in all the right places. 

Two scenes stood out: When Rafe and Quinn first come together, and in the hospital. (not elaborating that one!) 


5 stars for the book

5 stars for the narration

5 stars overall.


**a similarly worded review will appear on Goodreads, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, Audible.com and Divine Magazine**
