    Haka Ever After is the final book in the Sin Bin series, and it goes out on a high. Taine wants to marry Freddie more than anything. He is even prepared to brave Freddie's fathers, which trust me, is a big thing. Read their full story. You'll see what I mean.Now, as the synopsis is the invite, you can guess that Freddie's fathers don't eat him alive, but it is touch and go for a while. Not only that, but Taine and Freddie want to celebrate their different cultures, as well as deal with their man Haka Ever After is the final book in the Sin Bin series, and it goes out on a high.

You get a few words from most of them, plus some nice parts that will have you smiling like a loon. A perfect ending to a great series. Absolutely recommended by me.* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *MerissaArchaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

    Such a wonderful story it has all the feels. Taine was asking Freddie's fathers blessing in marriage he was nervous.... Everything leading up to the wedding was lovely from the making of cakes to cheese and more cheese please, it was hysterical ... The ceremony was comical in parts and beautiful in others this book was beautifully written. Traditions were honoured and Kilts were worn .. The trying on the kilts in the changing room was hilarious .Taine didn't know all about his family but Freddie Such a wonderful story it has all the feels.

In New Zealand the answers were there....I absolutely loved this book the comradeship between these guys is special and always something to keep ...

    Memory Lane with the best of friends.This may be short but a lot of thought and research went into making this a great opportunity to revisit some of our favourite characters and make a very fitting end of series.I'm sad that this is the end and I thank you Dahlia for writing the series.

    The Haka is a type of Maori war dance traditionally used on the battlefield and when groups come together in peace. Haka is a display of a tribes strength, unity, and pride.

Asking Freddie's fathers for permission was Taine’s first giant step, it was chaos from there (this is the Sin Bin group remember). From special rings to Freddie's wedding cake made of cheese, and kilts, lots of kilts. Definitely a wedding to be celebrated.Bringing in all the traditions from their vastly different backgrounds was icing on the cake (the real cake). Creating a very special day for two very special men.This was a very short book that managed to wrap up the Sin Bin series very nicely. I will miss these rugby players. I enjoyed getting to know them.Review Copy requested and reviewed on behalf of OMGReads.

    Feeling a little melancholic knowing that this is the last of The Sin Bin series. This is a series I’ve thoroughly enjoyed and it’s been such a treat to read about this great group of men and their partners.It’s been a great rough and tumble of a ride with a ton of laughs along the way and this last instalment, for Taine and Freddie’s wedding didn’t disappoint. I love the way the big question was popped and how brave Taine was in asking Freddie’s fathers blessing.

I love the way the big question was popped and how brave Taine was in asking Freddie’s fathers blessing. The ceremony itself was sublime and to say they arranged it quite hastily, it honestly couldn’t have been planned any better, everyone played their part and traditions were honoured. It was so heartfelt with a ton of humour and trademark joshing between the guys that we’ve come to expect and it was great that they were all featured here in this last book. I laughed a lot, I felt a tear and I really don’t think we could have concluded the series in a better way, I adored it! There’s a BIG surprise as well for one of the MC’s, one you’ll just have to read the book for and it had my lips all of a quiver.Farewell you guys, it’s been an absolute blast. I’ve loved the way you tormented each other mercilessly but underneath it all was such great camaraderie and respect for each other that was quite humbling. The way you all fell in love and found your soul mates was told so beautifully and I’m so happy I was there to see it happen.Review Copy requested and reviewed on behalf of OMG Reads.

    This is the first book I have read in The Sin Bin series and it won’t be the last and as you can see for me to give it 4 Stars it certainly can be read as a stand-alone, I may have read the last book before I had read the first but that didn’t take anything away from this amazing love story.Haka Ever After is set around Taine and Freddie’s wedding and what a wedding it turned out to be from the proposal to the cake made of cheese these guys were going to do it their way, traditions from two very This is the first book I have read in The Sin Bin series and it won’t be the last and as you can see for me to give it 4 Stars it certainly can be read as a stand-alone, I may have read the last book before I had read the first but that didn’t take anything away from this amazing love story.Haka Ever After is set around Taine and Freddie’s wedding and what a wedding it turned out to be from the proposal to the cake made of cheese these guys were going to do it their way, traditions from two very different backgrounds come together for these very special men. I enjoyed the short time I spent with the rugby players and now it’s time to go back to book 1 and really get to know them because this author who is new to me looks like she has a series I won’t be able to get enough off. This book has everything I could want I laughed along the way and it left me feeling all fuzzy inside what more can you ask for, looking forward to reading more from The Sin Bin for me this is sports romance at its best.

I absolutely loved this series and this story was the cherry on top and wrapped everything up perfectly. It is a quick read, but that in no way distracts from the story. I kind of wish it was longer, but that's only because I've fallen in love with these characters and don't want to let them go. I highly suggest you one click this one today. 5 stars!
