Owen Quinn has been trailing after his brother’s best friend since he was a kid, but what everyone took as admiration has always been love. For years, he’s had to keep his distance because the object of his affection has always been taken. Now with his father sick and the career he’s been planning since he was in high school circling the drain, the one person who’s there for him is the man he loves, but can’t have.
Mickey Martin is practically a member of the Quinn family. He grew up sneaking sips of sacramental wine in the church storage room with Keegan, looking after Owen, and since he was fifteen, working for Brendan. When his mom passed away, they were right there by his side. He owes the Quinns everything, but now his love for the youngest Quinn might cost him all that he holds dear.
Saint and the Sinner contains sexual scenes, and is intended for an audience age 18 and up.
This was a good read but I honestly thought there would be a little more of something. I am not sure exactly what but I am thinking that it may have danger or something along those lines. Really I am not sure. But as far as an overall romance it was a good read.
Owen has been in love with Mickey since a young age but he always looked at Mickey as the unattainable type of person. For one he is his brother’s best friend. Two he is engaged to a woman and even if he may be bisexual he is not single. Three Mickey works for his father who is a mobster in modern day times. So totally unattainable. Right???
So as it turns out Mickey is not in a relationship with Amy any longer like Owen thought. Actually he has not been in a relationship with her for quite some time. And two Mickey is definitely bisexual. As a matter of fact he has been hot for Owen for as long as he can remember. He just has not acted on it. Well not until now that is.
Owen finds himself in the situation where he is being followed and Mickey is the one who comes to his rescue. Once Mickey gets him out of danger Owen plays up on not wanting to be alone and ends up staying with Mickey for the night. This is where Owen learns that Amy is no longer in the picture. Also that Mickey is indeed bisexual. After finally getting what both men truly want, each other, there may actually end up being a future for them after all.
The only problem is Mickey still works for Owen’s mobster father and Owen does not want that kind of life for himself and nor does he want it for Mickey. He does not want to have to worry about if Mickey is going to come home at night or if he will be arrested. Can or will Mickey be able to give up the life that he has always known for Owen or will Mickey take a step back and stick with what he knows.
This was a decent read. I enjoyed it but I wish that something I feel is missing in this read. As far as this being a romantic read, this book was definitely that. So if you are looking for a book that that is all hearts and love, then this book is definitely for you. I do look forward to more books by Sam Burns again in the future.
