    I won and ARC and I am so freaking excited!------------------------------------------------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 ...

    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 ;)Now, I promised a "no spoiler" review, so I am gonna keep this simple. This books starts right afte...

    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...

    5 STARS OF PERFECTIONWhen 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 lovin...

    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 m...

    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 t...

    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 ...

    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 an...

    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.

    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...

    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. First, ...

    Reviewed for Just Love.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 n...

    This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review...but heck I bought it too! ;)-------------------------------------------------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 ...

    Advance copy courtesy of author etc etcDefinitely 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 ...

    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...

    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 A...

    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...

    I am so sad that this series is over. I am happy that Miki and Kane got their hard won HEA. Poor Miki went through so much, again, in this book. But answers to all your questions and are found here. Miki also found much needed closure. I cried many happy tears, especially when he finally sang the song he wrote for Kane. I will miss these boys so very much and hope to see them pop up now and then in other books. ARC provided by the author in excha...

    One thing you can always say about Miki... NEVER A DULL MOMENT! *grin*This was the wonderful ending that I was hoping for! All my questions were answered and all of my hopes were fulfilled! Excellent job, Ms. Ford... excellent job!

    3.5 starsTough to write a review as I fell out of love with the series after Tequila Mockingbird. I decided not to read #4 and #5, partially because I don't read stories with substance abuse or rehab and I wasn't interested in the rock band aspect of the series. Anyway, there were things I very much liked about Sin and Tonic, but the melodrama eventually grated on my nerves. The first two books of this series, Sinner's Gin and Whiskey and Wry wil...

    As the sequel to Absinthe of Malice (Sinners #5), this story picks up where the last one left off and as such makes for a much larger and more fully developed story than others in the series. There are of course a core set of characters to the series and this book makes a point of having all of the key players present and making their presence felt. Of course, the much larger story allows for a bigger cast. This is also the last book in the serie...

    I’m crying. I’m so sad this is the end of the series but what a fabulously beautiful closure Rhys gave us. The mystery that began with how a three year old, tattooed Miki was condemned to a hellish childhood is brought full circle and all questions are answered. Carrying on in the immediate aftermath of Absinthe of Malice, Miki has also reached a crisis point with the turmoil of his past he carries in his head. Kane is investigating who would...

    I stretched my reading out over a few days on this one because it was worthy of savoring like a box of gourmet chocolates. It was everything I hoped for and much more than I expected. In fact, it inspired me to dust off my audiobook of Sinner's Gin and start all over again. The whole Kane family is, of course, involved here and some of the earliest mysteries surrounding Miki are resolved, including information about his natural parents and how a ...

    Damn, this went by way too fast. Once I started, I just couldn't put it down! I really wanted to stretch it out over days, rather than hours, but what can you do? Favourite author, favourite series, favourite couple...just had to read it...finish it and then read it again.I have so looked forward to this book, and it certainly didn't disappoint. This whole story started with Miki and Kane, and so it's fitting that it came full circle and ended wi...

    Originally published at Reading RealityIf you are a fan of this series, this finale is going to seriously cut you up emotionally. And if you’re not a fan, or at least not yet, I suggest starting with the first book, Sinner’s Gin. Be prepared for one hell of a ride.This is also a giant hint that Sin and Tonic is not the place to start reading the Sinners series. This is where it ends, and the emotional resonance of that ending will be complete...
