And an era has come to a close. Our boys are now men (well…) and people are still out here trying to kill everybody.

Miki St John haven’t had the best run at life, and while there has been really good things like falling in love with the man of his dreams Kane, and having his best friend back who he thought had died Damien. So yes, shit has hit all the proverbial fans with him but there’s so much good he’s been given and yet his past is always behind him like a shado

5 Finale Hearts!

I’ll be the first to admit that this series is not my favorite of Ford’s, but this last entry in my mind, was definitely all about saving the best for last. I’m also quite known for giving series finales a generous 5 stars especially if they wrap things up in an epic conclusion, and this did not fail me.

It would be impossible to rehash the plot of the last five books, so suffice it to say that if you haven’t read any of them, this is not a stand alone and you need to turn yoursel

This book had what book 4 and 5 in this series lacked for me.
First of all this had a driven plot, where book 5, for example, was sort of... Slow? Chill.
It was cool to see the gang and their significant others again in book 5, but not a lot happened, other than being a set-up for THIS book, which -IMO- could have been boiled down to a part of this story or maybe written as a novella instead.

Rhys Ford is definitely one of my "automatic buy" authors. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that I am a very big fan of the "Sinners" series and especially of the first book "Sinner's Gin". Miki stole my heart the minute I met him, he will always be my favorite !! So when I saw we were gonna get some more Miki and Kane, ... I jumped for joy ;) for joy gif

Why I adore Rhys Ford even though she made me cry...

Actually, it's more like 'Why I freakin' adore this author' even though she's bringing one of my absolute favorite series to a close and she made me cry.

Coming to the end of a series I love is always a little bit bittersweet for me and I do love this series. I'm not afraid to admit I finished Sin and Tonic with both tears in my eyes and the silliest of grins on my face. Ah, Miki.

"I went because I love him, and I'm never going to send him out to face his monsters without me standing there right next to him."

Sin and Tonic is the book where Miki St. John finally lets himself be happy. Oh, it's not as easy as that, I mean, how could it be?

When I first started this series, I didn't love it. However, after rereading many multiple times it has grown into love. This book brings much needed closure to Miki's tragic past. It also brings back the rest of the characters from all the previous books. I laughed, and I cried many tears. It was just perfect in my eyes, and I'm sure I will be rereading it soon. I really hope we get some more books from this fierce and loving family!

Sin and Tonic is the direct sequel to, and picks up after, Absinthe of Malice . When details from Miki's past come forward it's everything Kane can do to investigate and try to keep Miki safe. Miki has some deeper introspection in this story and works through a lot to get through to the (spoiler!) happy ending.
As much as he lay exposed, his emotions raw and his heart splayed, Kane was right there with him. They fit into each other, giving as much as they took.

4.5 stars!

And so it comes to an end! I’m sad to see the Sinners series go, but I’m so happy with how Rhys Ford wrapped it up.

‘Sin and Tonic’ picks up a few months after book #5. Miki’s the happiest he’s ever been. The band’s doing well, the Morgan family is smothering him with familial love, and, most importantly, Miki and Kane are still head-over-heels in love with each other.

The only thing that threatens Miki’s perfect life is the mystery of his past.

It took me a few days to finally finish this book. Not because it was bad, but because life kept getting in my way when all I wanted to do was read dammit! But I'm really sad this is the end of Sinners. I want I need more of these Morgans. They are absolutely perfect heroes in my mind. They are so swoon-worthy and they love with all their heart and soul.

Poor Miki. He finally gets some closure to where he came from and who. It was rough and sad. I spent a good deal of the the time cryin
It’s only fitting that the series should end as it began. This last Sinner's book is Miki's well-deserved happy ending, where he comes to terms with his past and does everything he can to secure the future he wants with the man he loves. Of course it's not going to be a smooth road, we know carrying over from Absinthe of Malice that someone is after Miki and the danger is following everywhere he goes.

While there is plenty of action and police work here, the heart of the story is more focused on

Liked getting Miki's full story and seeing resolution for him and the fact he finally accepted some help. Miki and Kane continue to be feisty, strong and great together. But I did feel some of the other Morgan's were lacking. Don't know if I'm being greedy knowing this is the last book in the series but I wanted some more of the others.

Find it hard to consider the book for it's own worth as it's a rounding up of the series. Books 1-4 though connected can be judged on their own, 5 a snapshot prog
Any chance to spend a little more time with the men if Sinners is a good thing. Full review to follow soonish...

Does anyone know who did Miki's tattoo?

If you've read this series and specifically this book than you know what tattoo, I'm talking about. But if you haven't I'll just share with you that Miki St. John has a tattoo and it's not pretty...actually it's a reminder of the life that he lived as a child. A life that no child should ever have and through out this series we learn about that

Belens Audio Book Review

Rhys Ford blends mystery, suspense, romance, and action together in Sin and Tonic the direct sequel to Absinthe of Malice.

When details from Miki St. John's past come forward it's everything the love of his life, Kane Morgan, can do to investigate and try to keep Miki safe. Miki and Kane deal with an abundance of secrets, lies, murder, attempted murder, and crises while finally answering some questions readers have had since the series beginning. But Miki and Kane weather it all together.
I didn't want to pick this book up. At the same time I couldn't wait to pick this book up. It's the book I've been waiting for ever since I finished Sinner's Gin. It was going to give me (yes I'm selfish and only thinking about me and not Miki and Kane) the answers I've been looking for, for so long. But at the same time, this book also signifies an end. The need to say goodbye at the end of this book, and I just love these characters to death and never really want to say goodbye to them.

4.5 stars

"Yeah, that's not my dog. He just lives here."

If you don't cry through the epilogue your heart's made of stone. Full review to come.

Sin and Tonic is the culmination of Rhys Ford’s fabulous Sinner’s Gin series and, as is fitting, we are back to where we started with Miki and Kane. Even though this series each features stories for the Morgan brothers, Sinner’s Gin has always felt like Miki’s series to me and he and Kane are the heart of these books. So I loved that here we get some closure on Miki’s past, as well as moving things forward between the men and really seeing the connections that have grown between Miki and the Mor ...more
This review is for both the audio and ebook versions of this book.

Tristan James did a pretty decent job with the narration. Sometimes, it was difficult to differentiate between the various character voices but with the sheer number of characters he had to go through alone with his book, I totally understand how that can happen. It was a solid performance all in all.

To the story proper, I must say it exceeded all of my expectations. I was of the opinion that the previous book should have been the

I totally loved the first few books in this series, and re read the first tow recently,
Anyway I read this with Fra, whose review can be found here ,and while I loved seeing Miki get his HEA, and glimpses of the other characters lives , it felt dialed in at times, with overlong sex scenes and repetition on how good looking people were, I skimmed a bit.
It also suffered from an excess of Oirishness.

This series.... it's been a roller coaster beginning to end. There has been so many highs and lows, we've loved and lost, mostly loved though. No doubt about it, Sinners has been an amazing series and one I'm sad to see end. I reviewed the printed version of Sin and Tonic back in May so I'm I'll try not to repeat myself too much. Or be as longwinded.

Anyway, this book is in a way about closure and answers, but also a beginning and starting anew. Ever since the first book there w
aargh what to do with this book? This all series? On the one hand it is entertaining, romantic, action packed and altogether enjoyable. On the other it drips cliches about Ireland and the Irish and these have started to grate on my nerves considerably.
I wanted something light to read in the week coming up to the Irish referendum, so I suggested to Karen that we read this. It was, I think, a mistake. In the run up to an historical feminist shift in Irish society reading a book that relies heavily

The last installment in the Sinners series is classic Rhys Ford. It has something special for fans of every couple. Miki’s happy ever after has been a long time coming and it was worth every minute of the wait.
Miki is one of those special characters who captured my heart the first time I met him and never let go. He has the perfect partner in Kane and I have grown to love him just as much. Who am I kidding? I love all the members of Crossroads Gin and their crazy Morgan – Finnigan loves. I am s

The Sinners series is coming to an end, and I’m crying with sadness… but I’m also happy with happy endings.

When a series I love has to come to an end, I am always equally happy and sad. How can I be happy? Because sometimes a series goes on way to long to stay interesting. Sometimes a series can get so stale that it hurts to read and I end up cursing the author and publisher. I can think of two examples that I’ll not share with you. Thankfully, this series is one that has

About a year or so ago a favorite author read Black Dog Blues and gave it a favorable review so I shrugged and said, why not. Little did I know that would eventually lead to binge reading everything written by Rhys Ford that I could get my hands on. When I found the Sinners series I fell in love with Rhys as a writer even more. Miki St. John is one of my favorite characters, period, and it's bittersweet to have this series come to an end.

Loved this book so much! First of all Miki St. John is probably one of my favorite characters. You just plain hurt of him and all of the crap he's been through in his life. Having Kane is nothing more than he deserves. And while of course Kane is all sorts of awesome, he's still not Miki. I adore Miki. I love that this final book is really the co

Definitely my favourite in the series, only fitting since it's the last one. Miki is finally happy, his brother is back in his life, he's got a successful band, a family and he has love with Kane. But someone is trying to kill Miki and he has no idea why. In the course of the book Miki learns about his past, deals with the present and takes hold of his future - but of course none of it is easy!

The book is a direct sequel to #5, action starts pretty much whe

Going on the road with the new band Crossroads Gin was exciting. At least, it was for Damien, Rafe and Forest. But for Miki, there’s too many bad and haunting memories that start to smother him. He’s now feeling this is a mistake and he’s at a breaking point, where he no longer can hear the music. And as if Miki hasn’t had enough ups and downs in his life, the tattoo on his neck brings even more danger for him and the people he loves. But, at every bad moment for the band members, there’s a Morg ...more
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

And breathe! Deep breath, it's just a review, Debbie, you can do it!

So! This is book 6 in the Sinners series and I would recommend that you at least read Sinners Gin (book 1) and Absinthe of Malice (book 5) before you read this one. You need to know about Miki and Kane from the beginning since this is the conclusion to their story. Actually, I take that back. Read them ALL, please! Not least because they are 4 and 5 sta

You know when you come to what is the final book of a series and you *just know* this is going to hit you in the feels, so hard; that you're going to oscillate between wanting to read faster so you know what happens and needing to read slower so you can savour every nuance, every moment, every written word; that you know is going to wrap up every story arc and you're going to finish the book on a sigh and possible tear? Yeah? Yeah, that's Sin and Tonic.
