    One thought on “Second You Sin”

    1. So, you know how I really really really liked book 1, First You Fall?Well, I really really (I'll leave it at 2 reallys for now) did not like book 2, Second You Sin.In America, they call it the "Sophomore slump"when a great new tv series debuts and their second season pales in comparison. Or, as the term comes from, you love your first year at school only to be disappointed by the second. Everything that I loved about book 1 (Kevin, Tony, mystery) I found extra grating and annoying in book 2. I s [...]

    2. Exhilarating escapades. Magnetic MC. Hustling hilarity. Adorable hustler, Kevin Connor is a magnet for sleaze crooks and sticky situations. A recent thrilling investigation sparked embers from an old flame and burned brightly with an eleventh hour rescue from a psychotic kidnapper. With the killer behind bars Kevin should be safe in the puzzle-piece-perfect lap of his lover, yet as it turns out he may be in more danger than ever.Semi-boyfriend Tony has his own set of battles to fight, though his [...]

    3. Oh Kevvy, Kevvy, Kevvy! You have stolen my heart again. Still a trouble magnet, still a minx and still as adorable as ever. I have to be honest I was a little bit surprised that certain expectations from the first book didn't materialise, I was hoping that there would be more made of the UST surrounding all the possible love interests for Kevin because I loved that in First You Fall even though it's fairly obvious that semi boyfriend Tony is the front runner but having said that I wasn't disappo [...]

    4. 4 starsWell, I think I enjoyed this one more than the first one. Seemed like it was more fast paced. But right now the only thoughts I have are:Kevin: two thumbs up to you for growing a backbone.Tony: two middle fingers up to you buddy. I am SO not happy with you.Marc: please hook up with Kevin. K thanks!

    5. Scott Sherman's debut book (which features Kevin Connor, male prostitute extraordinaire), First You Fall, was one of my earliest experience with gay mystery genre. And starts my love towards M/M in general. So, reading the sequel to that is a little bit like reunion with friends. It gives me joy.This time, Kevin Connor deals about his acquaintances getting killed, his mother being a guest star in a TV show (which ends up with disaster when the TV personality makes bigotry comments against gay, J [...]

    6. I think I liked book one better. I still liked this one. It was enjoyable. I figured out the mystery way early on. Before Kevin even starts his non-investigation. This book didn't really focus on the mystery at all. I think it started to come into play after 50% and then Kevin does one thing and it all comes togetherTony is a douche. I don't see why Kevin likes him. The mom is the best partIMO it tried too hard to work in pop cultural and movie references. Like the shout out to Bristol Palin and [...]

    7. Since book one wasn't necessarily my favorite book I've ever read, I'm a little confused as to why I decided to continue the series. Curiosity, maybe? Unfortunately, I liked this one less than the first one. The mystery is nowhere near as good. I had it figured out long before the big reveal and was disappointed to find myself right this time as opposed to with First You Fall, which had managed to fool me. This one also features Tony more heavily than FYF, as he's now officially Kevin's “semi- [...]

    8. I take my TSTL comment from the first book back! Seriously, Kevin, what were you thinking? Did you take your medication? Liked the first one better but I still love Kevin, Freddy, Marc, Mom (high-five Mom!) and now Cody AND the jury is STILL out on Tony (I'm trying Tony, help me out!)

    9. 3.5 starsI have somewhat conflicted feelings about this book.Overall, I really enjoyed it – even a little more than the first one. It was another entertaining and clever mystery plot, with the same witty, hilarious dialogue I loved from the first book. Apart from the author clearly being a sizeist asshole (seriously Mr. Sherman, are those fat comments really necessary?), I am in love with this series and the characters. Except Tony. So, (view spoiler)[I REALLY didn’t like the ending. I did l [...]

    10. This was awesome. Scott Sherman said in the intro that winning the award for First You Fall put a lot of pressure on the second book, but I'm not seeing any sign of sophomore slump. I just finished reading First You Fall again, and it was so cool to be able to pick up the SECOND Kevin Connor Mystery. I had seriously begun to worry that maybe Scott had just decided to stop writing and I would have to respect that. But hooray for the second book! Pleeeeaase don't make us wait three years for the t [...]

    11. Still absolutely love Kevin! Not as strong as the first book, but still a great read. I missed Mark in this book (still there, but I guess I want him for more). Still great humor, some heart tugging, and great scenarios fit within this story. I am completely anxious and ready for the next book. Still not convinced about Kevin's love interest (did I mention MarkI really do like Mark ;)

    12. Very good gay mystery in which Kevin tries to figure out why some other rent boys have been killed or injured. This one ends on a heckuva relationship cliffhanger - I hope the next book is out soon!

    13. I have a bunch of reviews to write today so this is going to be just random notes.Even a call boy level prostitute's life isn't this delightful. He's Unitarian!! Woo hoo!Jory. He is so Jory.Very funny. I laughed so hard I couldn't breathe. Some funny parts (I can't promise these are the LOL ones):“Darling,” Freddy said, “it was practically dawn on a Sunday morning.” It was after noon, but Freddy was on gay time. “Where was the person rushing off to? No one in their right mind goes to c [...]

    14. This was a great second book. Kevin's detective skills haven't improved any but it doesn't make him any less loveable! He again finds himself knee-deep in a murder mystery and somehow bumbles his way through it. Not much has changed in his personal life, although his mother is no longer living with him, which you would think would make his semi-relationship with Tony a bit easier but no. I was disappointed at first because it didn't seem as though Marc would be in this book but, thankfully, he d [...]

    15. These books are so funny. A little bit of romance and it looks like that may get heavier in any upcoming books. It's going in a direction that isn't my favorite (view spoiler)[ Tony has a kid (hide spoiler)] in this genre but most people like it so read on!.

    16. What a great follow up to Scott Sherman's first book, First You Fall. The same clever plotting and witty humor, and the same charming rascal of a hero!

    17. This writer is very talented. I don't go for 'whodunit' books but I really enjoyed reading the first and second books in the series. The supporting characters were fantastic. I LOVED Freddy, Marc and Kevin's mom. A few things were a tad far fetch but I think that is how these mystery solving books go. In general, the plot was phenomenal. I loved the humor in the book. Freddy had me laughing throughout the book.The one thing that brought the book down for me was: Tony. Ireallydon't like him. He m [...]

    18. This was just as fantastic and entertaining as the first book. I am a big fan of First You Fall and have been waiting for this book for a long time and it didn't disapoint.I love the character of Kevin, he is smart, funny and a scrappy little guy. His continuing friendship with Freddy was also fun and I am warming more towards his semi-boyfriend Tony.There are secrets, lies and Kevin kicking some serious ass in this book and I hope the wait for the next one isn't as long.

    19. Oh Kevin. I just want to give you a big hug with my bosoms. You are such a cute little rent boy. But WTF, Tony needs to go maybe if I start chanting Marc. Marc. Marc. Marc. Marc you'll switch. No? Damn.

    20. The first book was much better. This had some cutesy draw for me, but the mystery was weak and the relationship bits were scattered. It's being drawn out too much for the sake of making a series; the abrupt ending was off-putting. I think I'll skip the third installment.

    21. This is another great book from S. Sherman.Our funny hero Kevin and his off again on again love of a cop has an uncanny way of getting involved in murder and mayhem. Not to mention a Mother who is funny as hell herself.

    22. Very good story. Easy to read. Full of action and a great ending. Looking forward to reading the third book and more after that.

    23. 2nd read: 9/25/12: I basically skimmed thru this one just reading Tony/Kevin's dialogues. Still enjoyed it immensely.

    24. Very good read, only the last few pages left me with a 'WTH' feeling. Sorry, but that development came too out of the blue for me. And it took away part of my reading fun.

    25. Kevin Connor is back! His job as a call boy does not keep him from returning to his sleuthing activities. Someone is killing New York City’s hottest male prostitutes. As Kevin begins, he has a surfeit of suspects. It is beginning to look like it could be someone who wants to keep their assignations a secret. Or maybe it is someone with a fetish. Then again, it could be a politician who protests too much. As he gets close, the web of secrets unravels and Kevin finds himself in danger.Kevin Conn [...]

    26. This may be my new favorite series. I love Kevin. I love that he's not ashamed of his work, that he volunteers his free time to the needy and that he manages to solve murders in his free time. I glad Tony finally pulled his head out of his ass. I was routing for Kevin to move on already. Definitely looking forward to reading the next book.

    27. For me this book started off slow. Not much about murder. A lot of descriptive sex. Then the last third of the book the action picked up and we got to the murder. I liked the characters by the time the book ended.

    28. Author Scott Sherman first introduced amateur sleuth and professional escort, Kevin Connor, in his 2009 Lambda Award-winning debut mystery, "First You Fall." In his clever follow up, "Second You Sin," Kevin crosses paths with two public figures, a presidential candidate and a beloved talk show host, while investigating the recent and seemingly connected deaths of three of New York City’s hottest male prostitutes.Kevin hears about Brooklyn Roy, the first victim in a series of killings, from his [...]

    29. Adorable blond 5 foot three Kevin is back and so is his semi-boyfriend NY cop Tony Rinaldi, his gay best friend Freddy, his OTT hairdressing mother and of course his many discrete clients who require him for their special kinky needs. The book launches with almost no preamble into a violent scene where Kevin finds out someone is killing off his fellow call-boy co-workers. Of course, getting his deeply closeted bi-sexual boyfriend into the investigations is not an option – Kevin’s line of wor [...]
