In SLOE RIDE, the fourth book of Rhys Ford's Sinner series, a troubled
rock star and a member of one of M/M's most beloved family, the Morgans
have their story
told. Quinn Morgan has been considered an outsider all his life, especially
when it comes to his family. To make matters even more awkward, Quinn has
harbored feelings for his older brother's friend, Rafe Andrade, for so long that
he hardly knows what to do with himself when Rafe returns, having
been kicked out of his band.
Feeling extremely sorry for himself, Rafe doesn't know what to do with his
life after being booted from the very band he helped build. But with his drug
addiction, there's really no way for him to do what he loves without taking
others down with him. It isn't until he realizes that the Sinners are looking for
a bassist that he feels he can turn his life around. The only problem is,
there's also a killer out there trying to take Quinn out.
I've always been a fan of Ford's writing but something about this book felt
different to me. There's still a mystery occurring like all her other books
have, but this one seemed a little out of place with the whole rock star
element. Rafe was a little hard to like in the beginning. I didn't feel
as sympathetic to his situation as I thought I would and therefore, I doubted
him a lot. I wondered how he was going to pull through and what he was
going to do to turn his life around. Having such a character, who had so
much to do to get his life back on track, made me a little wary as the author
put him with Quinn, a character whom readers already love and have a
connection to. While the romance at the end still holds strong, it was a
bumpy ride to get there.
SLOE RIDE is rife with mystery and intrigue. If you're looking for
unconventional characters and action, Rhys Ford's books would be a perfect
match for you.
It isn’t easy being a Morgan. Especially when dead bodies
start piling up and there’s not a damned thing you can do
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.
