At a Glance: Quinn and Rafe are now my favorite couple in this series.
Reviewed By: Karen
Blurb: 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.
Review: I did a reread of the Sinners series in preparation for Sloe Ride, and Quinn and Rafe are now my favorite couple in this series.
In my family, almost everyone is loud and opinionated and outgoing, they make friends with everyone; basically, they are all super social. Now, if you have ever met me or even interacted with me online, I am the exact opposite of them. I am quiet. In most cases I keep my opinions to myself, I am super-shy, and when I meet someone new, I am usually terrified to say anything because I am pretty sure whatever comes out of my mouth is going to sound ridiculous to them, and that I will make a fool of myself. Because I get so nervous when I do start talking, I tend to babble… I am a mess, so it was easy for me to get into Quinn’s story since I felt some similarities with him.
Quinn and Rafe’s relationship, compared to the others in the series, seemed to flow and develop much more smoothly, more sweetly. I love how Rafe handles Quinn’s quirks, and even finds them adorable. Throughout the story you still get doses of the rest of the guys you already love, along with watching Quinn and Rafe get together. Having the little snippets of the others seemed to give this book that little edge we are used to in the series, while keeping Quinn and Rafe’s story sweet.
