    4 HeartsOne should be happy to know that there s no sopho slump here A couple months have passed, and Rook is trying to adjust Adjust to his honest living Adjust to his loving supportive relationship with his once sworn adversary, homicide detective Dante Montoya He s determined to go the lawful path and maybe, just maybe, he can finally put down roots and live happily ever after The thing is, Rook s past just won t let him go that easily.This is probably one of the the least insta of 4 HeartsOne should be happy to know that there s no sopho slump here A couple months have passed, and Rook is trying to adjust Adjust to his honest living Adjust to his loving supportive relationship with his once sworn adversary, homicide detective Dante Montoya He s determined to go the lawful path and maybe, just maybe, he can finally put down roots and live happily ever after The thing is, Rook s past just won t let him go that easily.This is probably one of the the least insta of Ford s creations, and I appreciated how the feelings have evolved between Dante and Rook over time Full of vulnerability, insecurity, want and need, there s nothing lacking here in the love and smex department I liked how these men take care of each other, that despite being opposites in all the ways, they still connect where it counts in and out of the bedroom Such a strong foundation is going to be needed, especially due to Rook s illegal past that keeps knocking on his door, not to mention the rapid piling of dead bodies that just won t quit.What this also excels at is character development Of course it never hurts to have Tremblay narrate He s the master at subtlety and accents, and as always, is just plain fabulous Overall, I definitely wouldn t say no toof these flawed, fierce and loyal men, as well as the vibrant cast that supports them Thankfully, this ends on a note that strongly hints that Ford hasin store for these twoThank you to the author publisher for the audio in exchange for a honest review

    I have been excited about this book ever since I found out that there was gonna be a sequel to Murder and Mayhem I absolutely loved that book and I had very high expectations for this second one Thankfully my expectations were met Now let me start off by saying, that this book can not be read as a stand alone It s a continuing storyline about the couple from book 1 Rook and Dante I still love their names. so freaking cool Now I am gonna try and keep out any major spoilers, because I have been excited about this book ever since I found out that there was gonna be a sequel to Murder and Mayhem I absolutely loved that book and I had very high expectations for this second one Thankfully my expectations were met Now let me start off by saying, that this book can not be read as a stand alone It s a continuing storyline about the couple from book 1 Rook and Dante I still love their names. so freaking cool Now I am gonna try and keep out any major spoilers, because I think mystery books like these, should be read spoilerfree.After the shitstorm that happend in book 1, Dante and Rook are still together and very much in love That however, doesn t mean that things are always easy Rook is kind of missing his thieving ways and Dante knows that there are times, that Rook s flight response wants to kick in He is worried that Rook might run one day.Things get evencomplicated for the two of them, when Rook finds himself in the middle of yet another crime scene A crime scence involving his very dead, and very murdered cousin Harold.The detective leading this murdercase, has set his sights on Rook and Harold s wife as suspects, and he is not willing to let go without a fight Rook is gonna need all the help he can get especially when things go from bad to worse.Thankfully he has his amazing cop boyfriend Dante to lean on, and Dante and his awesome partner Camden, are not about to let go without a fight either That s not all the support Rook has though There is also Alex, his cousin, and Alex s boyfriend James And let s not forget about his very old, cranky and snarky grandfather Archie They were all great sidecharacters, just like in the previous book It was wonderful seeing the relationship between Rook and Dante grow, and to see them get closer These two were so sweet and hot together, and Rook slowly started to open up .The mystery part was captivating, and the twists kept coming I didn t expect anything less from Rhys Ford though.Now there is one thing I just need to get out, and that s the reference that was made, about the movie Clerks I am a huge fan of this movie and I just couldn t leave this review without a little wave to Dante from Clerks I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend this series to everyone who likes a romance mystery suspence story This review has been posted on Dirty Books Obsession Dirty Books Obsession

    When it comes to writing M M romances, no one does it quite like Rhys Ford From her beloved and sadly concluded Cole McGinnis series to this new literary adventure, everything she does is a guaranteed success, and with good reason Ford s romances are never superficial and her mysteries are never just glue for multiple steamy scenes She builds her stories on a solid foundation and treats steamy scenes precisely as what they are desserts, rare nuggets meant to make the story sweeter.It s a When it comes to writing M M romances, no one does it quite like Rhys Ford From her beloved and sadly concluded Cole McGinnis series to this new literary adventure, everything she does is a guaranteed success, and with good reason Ford s romances are never superficial and her mysteries are never just glue for multiple steamy scenes She builds her stories on a solid foundation and treats steamy scenes precisely as what they are desserts, rare nuggets meant to make the story sweeter.It s a tried and true recipe one vulnerable partner, brittle and breakable, but with a spine of steel, and one steady, dependable rock that never falters, never waivers and never doubts Rook Stevens has been abandoned and told he s worthless far too many times, but he finally realizes he s worth everything to Dante Montoya.Rhys never creates unnecessary rifts between her protagonists She respects the love and trust they ve built If anything, their bond becomes stronger in the face of dangers and challenges All the problems, all their discussions seem natural and organic Not a single emotion is forced or ingenuine Between the two, Rook sometimes seems as theinteresting character with his carnie past and his ridiculously rich and newly found family He is certainly the one we enjoy uncovering, one vulnerability at a time But Dante kind of sneaks up on a person, seemingly simple, unfailingly honest There are depths to uncover in him as well, nothing flashy, but interesting nevertheless.The plot in Tramps and Thieves is clever and firm, a mystery that follows the rules of its genre Ford easily avoids predictability and masterfully weaves threads that lead to our moment of dangers and revelations Having done it many times, both in her Cole McGinnis and in her Sinners series, she builds the mystery side of her plot with a very sure hand I enjoyed the two or three nods to characters from Cole McGinnis books If we re lucky, Ichi and Bobby might just show up in one of the future books Be that as it may, I hope we won t have to wait long for the next one these two have burrowed their way under my skin and I can t wait to see where their love will take them next If you haven t read this wonderful series, start with Murder and Mayhem and catch up quickly And make room in your heart for an ex cat burglar with different colored eyes and the cop who chased him until he fell in love with him
