Series: Sinners #3
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM
An informant tip sends the SFPD Swat team to an RV parked outside Marshal’s Amp and Coffee house in Chinatown where they expect to find a large shipment of meth. What team leader Connor Morgan and his men find instead is the bullet ridden body of Franklin Marshal moments before the RV blows into a million pieces. After the explosion Connor is there to comfort Marshal’s adopted son, Forest Ackerman.
Childhood was a bitter game of survival for Forest before the day Franklin came into his life. He spent his early years scrambling for food and shelter while his mother thought nothing of whoring him out for her own needs. Scrawny and starving Forest’s unlikely savior was an aging hippie who saw something special in the mouthy boy. Eventually Franklin managed to pry the child from his mother and gave him a decent life. Together they discovered his hidden talent as Forest immediately took to playing the drums.
On the night Forest’s beloved father is found murdered something intangible happens between the drummer and the SWAT officer. Days pass where neither can forget the comforting arms of the other. Each time Connor turns up at the coffee shop Forest’s heart beats faster. As for Connor, he’s becoming increasingly frustrated by his inability to forget the sexy, brown eyed man. See, Connor Morgan isn’t gay. Before he can come to grips with the situation however, an attempt is made on Forest’s life. Connor may be confused about his love life, but he’d make damn sure nobody else touched his drummer.
The Morgan family is back again with another sensuous, dangerous drama. Passion and murder take readers on a difficult journey in Tequila Mockingbird, book three in the excellent Sinner’s series. Forest and Connor, as well as the rest of the cast, come alive in this chilling tale of death. Forest is emotionally scarred, Connor is trying to redefine his sexuality. Author Rhys Ford takes her characters through hell and back and on top of the world with Tequila Mockingbird. These incredible characters stay with you long after the last page ends. I Joyfully recommend Tequila Mockingbird. This series is one of the best. Ever.
