Description

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.

Best of the series to date, in my opinion.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Oh hell yes! Between the writing and the narration it is one of the best series in the genre right now.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Connor Morgan, of course. The way he loves Forest, the terms of endearment and emotion he puts behind that love is absolutely amazing.

Which character – as performed by Tristan James – was your favorite?

Again, Connor Morgan. James takes Fords words and turns them into something solid with all the characters, but Connor is just another level.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was, had to split it up over two days though.

Any additional comments?

*** Updated December 21, 2014 to include both e-book and audio reviews ***

Tams e-book review from May 2014…

Conner Morgan is the eldest of the eight Morgan children and with that, he holds himself to a higher standard. He feels the burden of having to project a certain persona to everyone because of who his father is. Everything he thought he was is about to be called into question on his latest case. When one blonde haired, brown eyed, barefoot musician barrels into his life.

Forest Ackerman has had a very hard life. Used, abused and tossed out like trash by his own mother... unless she needed something from him, of course. He was saved by a man who saw the innocence of a child that needed to be protected. Forest found solace in his drums and the studio his dad owned, until an explosion tears his world apart and throws him right into the arms of a large, in charge and sex on a stick Irish cop. Conner Morgan.

Both men struggle with the attraction from the start, sort of. Forest doesn’t want to fall for a straight guy, but said straight guy keeps showing up at the coffee shop Forest works at, every day, making him impossible to ignore. And I don’t think Conner struggled so much with his attraction to Forest, as he did with this persona he had created for himself and a fear of not being what he thought his family wanted him to be.

After the initial explosion and the coffee shop bombing and then the hit and run, Conner finally admits his feelings for Forest. And once Forest is released from the hospital, Conner doesn’t give him much choice but to stay with him. So Forest gets a crash course in Morgan family politics 101 before these two even have a chance to define their relationship. Now this alone would send most men running, screaming and searching for the nearest EXIT. But not Forest. I think Brigid Morgan, the spitfire pixie matriarch of the Morgan clan, nails it when she tells Forest that his mother simply gave birth to him for her, for Brigid, that he was hers now. And unlike Mickey, Forest relishes the attention.

There was a lot more interaction with various members of the Morgan clan in this book, and I loved that. Classic Rhys Ford with drama, suspense, a mountain of bodies, a psycho killer and some hot, steamy, sweaty gay man sex dripping off of every page! I love the Irish and Gaelic terms that are used throughout this series and the strength of the family unit that is the Morgans. Every last one of them is fiercely loyal, stubborn, outspoken, full of piss and vinegar and carry an exorbitant amount of love.

Yes, if I really need to say it, this is a must read. You must read them in order as well to appreciate the Morgan family as a whole. As well as Mickey/Sinjin and Damien/Damie who it looks like will be staring up a new band, now that they found themselves a drummer. They just need a bass player. Oh, wait, Sionn’s best friend Rafe is a bass player. And this story ended with Quinn Morgan making his way up that tree!

Tams Audio review addition from December…

It is such a joy to listen to an Audio of a book I’ve already read, and find something new within the story. The relationship between Connor and Forest was so much more powerful when the characters were given a voice. To “hear” Connor call Forest a ghrá with so much emotion behind the word added even more depth to this story for me. Don’t get me wrong, Ford did a great job of conveying emotions with the written version and I devoured that copy. But to hear the strain in Connor’s voice when he is calling out to Forest after the bombing, to hear the love in his voice when he uses the Irish Gaelic term of endearment, hell, to hear the struggle in Forest’s voice as he slowly falls in love with his big, brooding, Irish cop, it was a thing of beauty.

Narrated by Tristan James who is fluent in the Irish brogue that is the Morgan Clan. And you will never be confused as to which Morgan is talking at the time, he has mastered the art of nuance and tone inflections so you always know when there is a shift in character. If you are like me and love to put a voice with the words on paper, then you are really going to get a treat with this one.

This is one of the best M/M series you can get your hands on right now, written by a well rounded author and narrated by a talented story teller. Definitely a must read and/or listen, but either way you chose to experience these stories, do so in order or you won’t understand a lot of what is happening from one book to the next. While each story is for a different couple, the core of the stories is a continuation of the characters relationships and how they develop as a whole.

Just gets better and better

I want to be a Morgan. I love this series. There are only a few books I will buy the ebook and the audio and this is one of them. This is the 3rd book in the series and Connor Morgan's story. And be still my heart, Tristan James' voice!! My god the man could melt a glacier just with his voice. This story is a GFY as until Connor met Forest, he thought he was straight. But he adjusts his thinking with the help of his amazing family. Forest comes from an abusive childhood and was saved by a pot smoking hippy. Now his childhood demons are trying to kill him and Connor is determine to protect him at all costs. Good stuff all around with the trademark Rhys Ford body count.

I love all the MCs in this series, but I seriously want Donal and Bridget to adopt me, I don't care that I'm in my 40s. There seems to be at least one more book in this series and I look forward to it. But I really look forward if Tristan James continues to narrate it. Sooooo worth a credit.

Gimmie Gimmie More Sin...

I cannot get enough of the Sinner series. Rhys is Fantastic !!!

*spoilers ahead*

As the end of Book 2 indicated, This book-- book 3-- focuses on Conner, the oldest Morgan brother, who is struggling with the reality of veering off his very well planned life path. What makes this such an exceptional read is that most of what he experiences, and talks about is very real, and overall very difficult. It takes a LOT of strength and a confident sense of self to defy societal and familial expectations. But if anyone can do it, the Morgan brothers can.

What I love most about this book was the reality of coming to terms with falling for someone so far from your expectations. I think love transcends gender so,I didn't blink an eye, but I loved how Rhys emphasized how scared Conner was to be a disappointment to his family for not carrying out the (hetero) life he believed his family-- most importantly his dad-- expected of him. As is typically the case with the Sinner series, Connor and Forest don't go riding off into the sunset, as usual, we readers are drawn into some type of murder mystery that the Morgan clan helps investigate.

I knew where Rhys was going with this series by book 2, and since I have no qualms about speaking my mind.... I will tell you... Her Sinner's series is about re-birth and re-discovery. Therefore, the new lives that Miki, Damien, and now Forest have with the Morgan clan will allow them and of course (book 4's tortured musician) Raif to come together and re-create a band similar to that of the original Sinner's Gin band.I love each and every one of those soulful and strong musicians, and I welcome more glimpses into their lives.

Oh and lines like this don't hurt either...

" Hey... just the guy I'm looking for... I needed to ask you a question.... I kind of need to lose my virginity, and I was kinda wondering if you could help me out."

Seriously? Seriously? Rhys keeps me coming back for more Sin. Book 4 is on my MUST GET NOW LIST... And after reading this (book 3) and of course Books 1 and 2... it is sure to be on yours.

FANTASTIC READ!!! Credit or Cash... get it!!!

I love the Morgan family!

This series is awesome. Forest and Connor's story is another great adventure. What a hell of a ride. This family just keep on giving. It is excitement at its best. And the love scenes are totally hot and steamy. What a suspenseful, mystery, thriller, narrated by Tristan James. I highly recommend. ENJOY!

GREAT SERIES!

Most enjoyable. Kept me up the whole night through. The love story between Forest Ackerman and Connor Morgan is beautiful. Action as always fast paced and the problem they encountered is terrible. Forest's young life was horrible. His mother is a bitch! How could she treat her son like that is heartbreaking. Very good plot and the performance/narration by Tristan James is excellent. Rhys Ford is a very talented writer and I hope she will keep on writing for a long, long time.

I think my fav of this series so far

Well, I am not sure its my favorite. The first one was good and this one was kind of a tie.

Even though the series is a bit formulaic, as most series are, each story is unique. When I listened to the first book, I thought, I probably should have just bought the kindle version of it because I read too fast to really enjoy how slow I felt the story was moving audio wise. But, here I am finishing book 3 and just purchased book 4. I can't seem to get enough of this series.

I do have to wonder though. Is there going to be a psycho killer in every story? Asking for a friend. Lol. Anyway, reading these stories are kind of like looking at episodes of Criminal minds with some romance thrown in. You are like, well dang, who is the killer and why are they so cray cray for no reason.

Great writing. I love the Morgan family. Tristan was good as usual with only a small bit of choppiness in the performance. At one point, I think I was confused if it was the same story. I guess I just figured there was something wrong with the audiobook itself. It happens. It was still a great listen.

The one thing I have to say about the way this author writes the characters like Mikki, Damien and Forest. They are not portrayed as being automatically fixed by love. They still have their issues and things that plague them. They are written so real to me.

ok. on to the next book

An Irish cop finally realizes he's not so straigt

4.5 Stars.
It seems that Rhys has plotted all of these books out well in advance of writing them. This is my second time listening to the entire series. The second time around I caught all the inferences to the future stories. Each book has a different pair of men and the fun is how they connect with each other and with the family. Each man has his head up his ass for some reason and it is up to their partner, Brigid or Donal to set them straight (well you know what I mean). Same bit of blood and gore as the first two. It is obvious that this is all leading up to a new band.
Again, fantastic narration by Tristan James.
On to book 4.

Highly recommended

I absolutely love Tristan James as a narrator. However, I could only bring myself to give this 4 stars for performance because the audio had dozens of places that sounded like narrator was in a tunnel. It was very distracting and pulled me from the story. Other than that, I highly recommend this series. Rhys Ford's characters are well rounded and the story line is a great balance of emotion and action.
