Title: Fish Stick Fridays
Deacon Reid was born bad to the bone with no intention of changing. A lifetime of law-bending and living on the edge suited him just fine—until his baby sister died and he found himself raising her little girl.
Staring down a family history of bad decisions and reaped consequences, Deacon cashes in everything he owns, purchases an auto shop in Half Moon Bay, and takes his niece, Zig, far away from the drug dens and murderous streets they grew up on. Zig deserves a better life than what he had, and Deacon is determined to give it to her.
Lang Harris is stunned when Zig, a little girl in combat boots and a purple tutu blows into his bookstore, and then he’s left speechless when her uncle, Deacon Reid walks in, hot on her heels. Lang always played it safe but Deacon tempts him to step over the line… just a little bit.
More than a little bit. And Lang is willing to be tempted.
Unfortunately, Zig isn’t the only bit of chaos dropped into Half Moon Bay. Violence and death strikes leaving Deacon scrambling to fight off a killer before he loses not only Zig but Lang too.

Starting a new series can be interesting. Some work, some don’t, others like Half Moon Bay just have a way of grabbing your attention from the moment you start the story and leave you wanting more at the end. Rhys Ford has delivered just that with Zig, Deacon, and Lang. And make no mistake this is Zig’s book. She rules it quite well on her sofa in a bookstore with her two appropriated cats. I’m looking forward to watching Zig inevitably take over the world.
Deacon is Zig’s uncle. He has just recently acquired custody of her. He’s new to the whole parenting thing and trying his best to do anything necessary to give his baby girl the best life possible. He’s turned his life around to see that it happens. New slates in a new town seem like the best option for Deacon to achieve this. There is just one problem with this plan. Trouble seems to have followed them to town.
Owning and operating Between the Lines bookstore in Half Moon Bay has allowed Lang to slowly and peacefully rebuild his life back after the colander incident. His sexy new neighbor is anything but the calm and sedate he has grown accustomed to. The little half pint the mechanic has attached at his side is most likely even more trouble than her uncle. There is just something about the man that makes Lang want to live a little more dangerously, not necessarily take a walk on the wild side but definitely step off the straight and narrow.
Nothing Deacon and Lang want goes as planned. The not so random fires and bullets are hitting far too close to home. Both men have pasts that keep suspects and motives blurred. Meeting someone new and trying to see if there is something worth pursuing while dealing with police interrogations and school yard bullies is certainly not an ideal dating situation but Lang and Deacon give it a go regardless. There’s a sweet romance here and I’m looking forward to finding out where Ford plans on going with this series.
