Sloe Ride by @Rhys_Ford @dreamspinners #REVIEW #ULTIMATEINDULGENCE
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.
The boys from Sinner's and the Morgan clan are back! I don't think I have wanted to be a member of a fictional family as badly as I do the Morgan's since my early childhood obsession with the Partridge Family. Hey even I could play the tambourine.
Quinn is the Morgan who's story I have been looking forward to the most. He's not like the others in his loud, boisterous, interfering family, he is quiet and thoughtful and a little different, but at his core he is all Morgan. This is something that is family doesn't always remember but they are about to learn he is as stubborn as the rest of them.
Rafe has been a member of the extended clan since his first fight with Sionn in grade school. After making it big in the music world he has a very public fall from grace and several months in rehab. For Rafe, Quinn is the proverbial forbidden fruit and after just one taste there is no going back. And he will fight the whole Morgan clan right along with his own demons to keep Quinn.
This book, like the rest of the series, is fast paced with the perfect mix of danger and sex with the fun of family drama thrown in to really amp it up. While all the boys from the band are in this book we really get to see another layer to Mikki. There is a scene between Mikki and Quinn that is so raw and emotional that it made me fall in love with the prickly singer all over again.
This is one of those series that you just don't want to end. I keep hoping that they decide to add a brass section so the stories can go on and on.
