Absinthe of Malice by Rhys Ford
Series: Sinners #5
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM
At one time Miki St. John and Damien Mitchell were part of the hottest, award winning band on the planet, but their lives and two band mates died in a car accident. Rafe Andrade also has memories of the big time before drugs and alcohol nearly destroyed him. As for Forest Ackermann, his childhood was a nightmare until an old man saved him and later gave him purpose as a backup studio drummer.
These four men are brought together by fate and their lovers, who inspired them to pursue their passion once more.
It’s Damien’s idea to bring Crossroads Gin to the public the way they originally started out. He’s booked them in small bars and dives across the country believing it’s the best way for them to bond as a band.
Along the way they will grow to know each other better, become stronger and lean on each other when bad dreams knock them down. Perhaps to lay old ghosts to rest and share their music with as many people as possible. Through success and dangerous situations Miki, Damien, Rafe, and Forest will confirm their resilience and ultimately accept that loving their Irishmen is more important than all the rest.
Absinthe of Malice reaches for the stars and touches the heavens. Author Rhys Ford holds true to her great characters with charm, heart, heat, and passion. Each couple in the series is brought together for this emotional, dramatic affirmation of love. Threads of plotline from each couple, as well as a gripping subplot are beautifully brought together in Absinthe of Malice. Fans of this series are most definitely going to love this standalone new story. This large cast absolutely holds the reader from the first page to the last. Heart and soul, Absinthe of Malice is a masterful tale.
