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.


Yeah, so that’s my annoyed face.

Just this once, and instance would have I liked the mystery aspect to be gone. I love Rhys. We all know it. I just felt like it needed to be repeated in case someone was doubting My Queen. With that being said; Why were alllll these extra folks in this story? Excuse the eff out of me, but can Quinn & Rafe get some time together. I mean, Damn. I am not happy. I’m not happy with the progression of the plot. Really??? Quinn out of all people. I didn’t find that funny or nice at all. What really is my issue is the “alluded” to story line. I don’t do well with it. You know why? Because I’m not in Rhys fabulous head so I don’t know the issues that we are referring to. I felt like because these are the only two in the series with a background that Quinn should have got prologue as well. It’s nice to see some of Rafe past indiscretions, but Quinn, and everyone else knew things I felt like the reader should have known as well.

No people of Zoolander, I can’t read minds so I’m right along with you with trying to figure out Quinn’s “problems”. Eventually I kinda figured it out and certain things were told. I still feel like the two main characters were cast B in their own story. And again, What the hell, Morgans? I know Quinn is the sensitive soul in the family, but cuddle him much? They didn’t give him space to breathe. I felt protective over him as well. Not one chance was he able to go to someone, instead they descended on him like a flock of birds!!!

**Sidenote** I love the magpie nick name, and the coffee store name!! Rhys is amazing,and her love for my two favorite historic romance mm authors is uber fantastic!!

I can put away all my disdain for the plot, the family, and the illusions, because at the end of the day Quinn & Rafe together were amazing. They fit perfectly. I’m telling you this as a straight contemporary with the mystery would have been freaking amazing.I can feel it. I just know it would be. I liked seeing Rafe get his redemption, and even when it was on the line his first thought was whatever Quinn needed he was first. Gah! They were adorable and that made me happy in the midst of this semi-ranty review. LOL. It wouldn’t be a Rhys book for me without the tears. That conversation Quinn had with his mother left me in tears. Looking forward to the next book. I liked this book, but felt like my guys were second in their own story.

Not cool.
