Tequila Mockingbird by @Rhys_Ford @dreamspinners #REVIEW #HAHAT #ULTIMATEINDULGENCE

Tequila Mockingbird, Rhys Ford, Dreamspinner
Sinners Gin #3
Lieutenant Connor Morgan of SFPD’s SWAT division wasn’t looking for love. Especially not in a man. His life plan didn’t include one Forest Ackerman, a brown-eyed, blond drummer who’s as sexy as he is trouble. His family depends on him to be like his father, a solid pillar of strength who’ll one day lead the Morgan clan.

No, Connor has everything worked out—a career in law enforcement, a nice house, and a family. Instead, he finds a murdered man while on a drug raid and loses his heart comforting the man’s adopted son. It wasn’t like he’d never thought about men — it’s just loving one doesn’t fit into his plans.

Forest Ackerman certainly doesn’t need to be lusting after a straight cop, even if Connor Morgan is everywhere he looks, especially after Frank’s death. He’s just talked himself out of lusting for the brawny cop when his coffee shop becomes a war zone and Connor Morgan steps in to save him.

Whoever killed his father seems intent on Forest joining him in the afterlife. As the killer moves closer to achieving his goal, Forest tangles with Connor Morgan and is left wondering what he’ll lose first—his life or his heart.

The Morgan clan is back and this time we get to know Connor, the oldest, a bit better. The most interesting part of this for me is Connor trying to accept being gay, or bi-sexual if you prefer. It shows that even if you are raised in an open, accepting family sometimes we as individuals have trouble accepting truths about ourselves, and the expectations we believe that others have of us.

Forest had no trouble accepting he was gay, he just didn't believe he had any self worth. I don't know that I have read a character that needed someone to love him as much as Forest. Thankfully he had Frank, for a while, and when Connor comes into his life he has no idea what to think. My favorite part was watching him just suck up the love that Brigid offered like a sponge.

I have never wanted to crawl into a book and strangle someone as much as I did Ginger(I'm sorry but I can't even refer to her as Forest's mother). I had some serious loathing going on, and would love to see her locked in a room with Brigid for half an hour. A strong varied secondary cast with both good guys you will want to know more about... Quinn and Rafe and bad guys you can't wait to see get what's coming to them. The Morgans are one of those families that you just wish was real so you had the chance to somehow come into contact with them. Donal and Brigid are the sun and their family, both blood and chosen, gravitate around them with complete acceptance.

The author has done it again with a complex intriguing story line that explodes from the beginning and never slows down, she creates main characters that are likable and real and stories that keep you turning the pages. You will be hooked from page one.
