A Sinners Series Novella
Miki St. John’s life has been turned upside down but it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him.
His best friend, Damien Mitchell, is back from the dead. He has a dog named Dude. And more importantly, he and his lover, SFPD Inspector Kane Morgan, now share Miki’s converted warehouse.
For the first time ever, Miki’s living a happy and normal-ish life but when Valentine’s Day rolls around, Miki realizes he knows next to nothing about being domestic or domesticated. Nothing about the traditional lover’s holiday makes sense to him but Miki wants to give Kane a Valentine’s Day the man will never forget.
Can he pull off a day of wine and roses? Or will his screwed up childhood come back and bite Miki in the ass?
My View – Story:
A sweet glimpse into the lives of Kane and Miki and the terrifying event that is Valentine’s Day.
Oh how Miki’s life has changed. He has a dog, a lover and his best friend came back from the dead. Although still plagued with memories of his two band members that are no longer alive his flashbacks don’t happen so frequently.
Miki is in a panic about Valentine’s Day. Whilst Damien is out buying extravagant gifts Miki is starting to panic more and more about the gift he has for Kane. Thought rather cost led him to his gift but now he is having doubts. When he calls over his father in law to help him out there is a lovely bonding session. Donal is just what family phobic Miki needs!
Miki wouldn’t be Miki without all the self doubt and insecurity. Slowly but surely the Morgan clan are growing on Miki and the mere thought of spending any time with them no longer has him hyperventilating. The last chapter just enforces how much Kane loves him and it was lovely to see them so relaxed together. There is hope for the young rock star yet!
My View – Narration:
Tristan James had quite a task with so many accents to narrate. I particularly liked his Irish accent! It’s a quick one at only an hour and a half but very enjoyable!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
