More About This Book

Overview

There's a dead man in Miki St. John's vintage Pontiac GTO, and he has no idea how it got there.

After Miki survives the tragic accident that killed his best friend and the other members of their band, Sinner's Gin, all he wants is to hide from the world in the refurbished warehouse he bought before their last tour. But when the man who sexually abused him as a boy is killed and his remains are dumped in Miki's car, Miki fears Death isn't done with him yet.

Kane Morgan, the SFPD inspector renting space in the art co-op next door, initially suspects Miki had a hand in the man's murder, but Kane soon realizes Miki is as much a victim as the man splattered inside the GTO. As the murderer's body count rises, the attraction between Miki and Kane heats up. Neither man knows if they can make a relationship work, but despite Miki's emotional damage, Kane is determined to teach him how to love and be loved - provided, of course, Kane can catch the killer before Miki becomes the murderer's final victim.

    Reviewed by Guest Reviewer/Leigh & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog
    “It was jaw-dropping and reeled me into this equally amazing book from the get-go.” ~ Under the Covers

    For anyone who has read Rhys Ford, it should be common knowledge that all of her books have simply amazing openings. Sinner’s Gin was no exception. The prologue was short and sweet, but it was jaw-dropping and reeled me into this equally amazing book from the get-go.

    Miki St. James had it all. He was the lead singer in a Grammy-winning hit band whose popularity was only on the up-and-up. But within an instant, he lost everything. Kane Morgan, a detective with the San Francisco Police Department, owns warehouse space adjacent to Miki’s warehouse-converted home, and through the wily ways of one mutt dog, Dude (who is awesome by the way!), Kane meets his neighbor while Miki is still recovering, both mentally and physically, from his tragic accident. The two don’t get along at first, yet there is something that draws both of them to each other.

    Sadly, it seems that tragedy surrounds Miki, so there is a continued police presence at his house, and Kane reaches out to him as a friend rather than just a protective cop. Through the investigation of a dead body found in Miki’s garage, we find out that while Miki had recently had money and fame, his life wasn’t always one of luxury. He was orphaned and taken into foster homes where he was repeatedly abused. Kane, on the other hand, grew up in a large and loving family. The abuse that Miki had suffered as a child only pulls on Kane’s heartstrings some more, and it doesn’t take long before he is enamored with the singer, and while it takes a little bit longer for Miki, the feeling is soon reciprocated.


    I truly adored this book, and both Kane and Miki as well. While there was a spark of attraction for each other during their first couple of meetings, they developed a friendship before falling into bed with each other, which I just love in my books. I loved reading their exchanges and banter, and seeing that they had such great chemistry. Ford truly writes so marvelously, I often found myself smiling, laughing hysterically, or on the verge of tears with most every page. Mostly there is great wit and humor throughout the book, and it is done so well. Even when the stakes are down and things aren’t looking good, she knows how to write in some really great dialogue. And if not humorous and witty, it is touching and sweet.


    In addition to Kane and Miki, the peripheral characters were equally as great. I just loved Sanchez, Kane’s partner on the force. He and his discussion of the motor pool was truly hysterical. And then there is Kane’s family who are just wonderful. He has a whole cast of siblings, mostly brothers, and loving Irish parents who accept him being gay, and welcome Miki into the family with open arms, even though Miki is quite scared of that at first.


    With all that Miki has endured in his life, it is very difficult for him to believe that someone truly loves and cares for him, but Kane comes through and shows him that Miki can learn to trust him, that he is not going anywhere. I look forward to reading more about Miki and Kane, and hope to see more of them in the series.


    Oh, and before I forget, Ford ends Sinner’s Gin just as shockingly as she began it. For those readers who don’t like cliffhangers, know that Miki and Kane’s story ends, and ends well, but the very ending of the book gives us a glimpse of what’s to come in the series, and I for one, cannot wait!

    She's Done it Again!

    I was so excited when I discovered that Rhys Ford was releasing a new novel not associated with the Dirty series. Don't get me wrong, I love the Dirty series and can not wait for the next release. However, when I saw the blurb for Sinner's Gin, I was hooked! When I read it.....well, then I was a fish on the line!
    I can't give any plot twists away. What I can say is that, once again, Rhys Ford has written a complex, heartwarming novel filled with strong, yet vulnerable, main characters, an intricate story with twists and turns where the ending will blow you away!
    Kane is hot and from a loud, extravagant Irish family. Mieko is this incredible dichotomy of tough street kid and oh so vulnerable man. Their sex scenes are HAWT!
    The dialogue is incredible. This is a beautifully written and eloquent novel. I truly can't say enough great things about it or Rhys Ford. She has done it again.
    I, for one, am anxiously awaiting what is next on her list.

    This was a very good book with great character development. I have read some really bland superficial M/M romances lately so it was really nice to read one with a great story line and wonderful characters.

    Yes, thank you very much

    Thank you Rhys Ford for another wonderful read. Miki and Kane meet under trying circumstances with a thieving terrier involved. Who would know how their lives would entangle leaving each man questioning himself. I loved the two protagonists, they both had to look within themselves and trust - sometimes that is the hardest part.
    No spoilers, but I was glued to my seat and was very pleased with the outcome. Really its no surprise but I enjoyed the journey--my only concern? When does the next one come out?....
