HELLO MY FRIENDS, I HOPE YOUR WEEKEND IS GOING WELL, AND HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL YOU MOMS! HERE IS MY BLOG TOUR STOP OF THE MUSIC NEVER DIES, THE LAST BOOK (SNIFF) IN THE APISHIPA CREEK SERIES BY THE WONDERFUL RAIN CARRINGTON! I HAVE A TREAT THOUGH, I AM DOING A MINI REVIEW OF BOOK 5, AS WELL AS A FULL REVIEW OF 6, WITH AN EXCERPT AND LINKS! LET'S GET STARTED SHALL WE?
BOOK 5: BIG BAD MOONEY:
THIS IS PERFECT FOR THIS BOOK, AND CAN BE A LESSON TO EVERYONE! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Lin Mooney, a man that has always been in control of his own life, suddenly finds himself at the mercy of not one man but two. Joey Pino comes back to Manacle, beaten and in need, and Lin wants to be the person he turns to. That is except for the fact Lin’s already hopelessly in love with another man, The British beauty, Andy White. These much younger and smaller men have him by the heartstrings and he can no longer deny his feelings, despite his imperfect health and age. He wants them both more than he’s ever wanted anything.
Brandon is out to prove a point and Sidney goes along, blindly following his Master until he can’t do it anymore. Can bringing another man into their bedroom make them stronger as a couple or tear them apart?
Five men contemplate the question…How many in a life or a bedroom is too much? Love is tested again in this, the fifth book of the Apishipa Creek Chronicles, and the end will leave you breathless and ready to scream. One of the men of Apishipa Creek is on his way to the most important day of his life when tragedy strikes.
I was so glad to see Lin get his man, well men! It isn't an easy road though, and there will be trials but Lin is the man to see them through till he gets the relationship he has always dreamed of!
There are kinks (no pun intended I swear ;P) to work out in all of these relationships, but if anyone can come out on top (this is not intentional really), it is these wonderful men of Apishipa Creek!
The ending of this one will having you tearing your hair out, good thing I have my review of book six up next huh? Thanks Rain, for yet another 5 star winner in this epic series!

NOW HERE IS A SMALL EXCERPT FOR YA:
His fucking balls hurt! It was ridiculous to feel that way at his age, but he did, and he couldn’t be happier about it. Both of his boys, and yes, they were both his boys, were good people. They refused him to save the feelings of each other and he was suffering for it, but this kind of suffering was fantastic. Now to find Joey so they could all fit together like some odd, multicolored puzzle. Andy, bright and beaming yellows and greens and blues. Joey, darker, covering them in reds and burnt orange passion. He would never again push either away, but that was if he could find his dark, brooding, and angry lover. He had been on the phone with every club in Colorado and had started on New Mexico and Wyoming. He could be anywhere, though. Anywhere in the country by then, but one thing was certain, he would be at or near a leather club. It was in Joe Pino’s veins to be in the life, like it was Lin’s.
AND NOW FOR MY REVIEW OF THE NEWLY RELEASED LAST BOOK IN THE SERIES: THE MUSIC NEVER DIES!
PERFECT, NOW HERE IS MY REVIEW:
The Music Never Dies (Apishipa Creek #6) by: Rain Carrington
reviewed by: Becky
In this the 6th and final installment of the Apishipa Creek Chronicles, we find out the fate of Rebel Marino, who in the last book was in a terrible accident, left to the ghosts of the past and the tenacity of his fiancé.
This gripping look at the lives of all of the couples we have grown to love is a testament to hope, faith and endearing strength that they have found in each other and the friendship that holds them all together as they face maybe the hardest trials yet. Each of them come up against past demons and future fears as one of their own must stand against sickness and pain.
Rebel, Jack, Lonnie, Travis, Binx, Nathan, Pappy, Sidney, Brandon, Joey, Andy and Lin as well as the people of the town of Apishipa Creek and the leather club Manacle band together to save a new love that none of them saw coming as well as fight the evil of the young men who left Rebel to die.
Come once more to the town tucked in the mountains of Colorado and fall in love again…
First I have to say, thank you sweet baby Jesus that I read 5 and then read 6 a few days later so I didn't have to stew on that hefty cliff hanger for too long! I love a book that makes you want the next in the series, but man give a girl a heart attack why don't ya ;)!
This should be the happiest day of Rebel's life, instead he is fighting for it after the unthinkable happens! Rebel is strong, and he can get through anything with his friends and his man at his side!
The old saying "Everything happens for a reason" certainly applies here, if Rebel hadn't been hurt, he and Jack never would have met someone very special who could make their lives complete, this little love comes with it's own challenges, but with their 'family' behind them, how can they lose?
This book is about moving on and letting go of pain and past resentments, and it is a beautiful story of strength and courage! I am sad to see this series end, but if it had to, what a way to end it, this is a can't miss for sure friends! Thank you Rain, for giving us a piece of your heart in every one of these boys we have come to love so very much!

NOW HERE IS AN EXCERPT FOR YA!
Lin set the phone down and slid his eyes over to Andy and Joey, who were sitting together on the bed reading a gay romance novel and laughing like kids. Andy was positively blushing and Joey was sporting wood, but still giggling like a girl. They were beautiful, they were special and they were his. He’d never felt so lucky before in his life and he’d had a very blessed life. Now he would have to hurt them with this news. Neither was terribly close to Rebel. They were only beginning to get to know the other subs besides Sid and Lonnie, but they were friends nonetheless and perhaps more importantly, they were other subs. That made him one of them and when one of their own was hurt or in any sort of pain, it seemed to affect them all.
Joey looked up at Lin and immediately lost his smile. Smart Joey, he could read people well, but his sweet Andy was still grinning and said, “Daddy Lin, this is absurd and so sexy! You must read with us, yes?”
“Maybe later, baby. Come here to me, both of you.”
They slid off of the bed and walked over to him, Andy sensing his tone and sobering from his laughter. Joey took Andy’s hand and then took him from behind, holding him as he told Lin, “Tell us, Daddy Lin. Please, Sir.”
“Boys…There’s some bad news about Rebel.”
Joey tightened his grip on Andy. “His leg, Sir?”
“Yeah, Joe. The doctors told them a little while ago. Rebel’s not taking it well, of course. If either of you pray, this may be the time.”
“Raised Catholic, Daddy, I haven’t prayed in a long time, except to get you and Andy. I’ll go light a candle.”
Andy turned his head to Joey and asked, “Can we go with you?”
Lin answered, “Yeah, let’s leave this unpacking and head to St. Martin. We’ll swing by the hospital and then go to one of the churches there. Pappy might not be back yet.”
“They probably have a chapel,” Joey offered, and Lin nodded while he took them both into his arms.
They were surrounded by boxes, bags, and there was newspaper everywhere, but it was already home. They’d decided to take down some of Candace Perry’s colorful decorations to make the place their own, but the one wall would always hold the collage of rock and roll posters most of the men thought were signs from the great beyond that each of the couples who’d lived one time or another in that house were meant to be.
As they walked through the dining room, Lin’s eyes sought and found the one poster that started it all. Rebel Yell. Rebel…the nephew of the former, late owner. The one who’d come to Apishipa Creek to sell a house and move on as fast as he could before he’d met Jack Colton and had fallen in love. Where the story begins, Lin thought, is sometimes how it ends. Coming full circle.
Suddenly, as they all headed to Lin’s F150, he grew worried. If for some reason this drove a wedge between Rebel and Jack, if they parted ways for good, would that mean the rest of the relationships made there would be doomed as well?
It was superstitious nonsense, of course. Lin hadn’t believed there were any signs from the spirits or planned destiny for love lives. Still, that nagging worry carried him all the way to the hospital.
