    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.

    Haka Ever After is a fun catch-up with Freddie, Taine, and the whole Sin Bin group. I have to confess—when I read Freddie and Taine’s story in The Caretaker, I had a hard time feeling their connection beyond the physical. But here in HEA (that’s a perfect abbreviation, right?!), they actually felt like a couple who’d been together for so long and are so comfortable with each other that “old married couple” already fits them as a descriptor even without being married yet.

There are plenty of laughs packed into this short story, you know all the Sin Bin guys are up to their usual shenanigans…and Freddie and Taine get up to a bit of naughtiness (the very good kind!). But there’s also some really heartwarming moments as well, particularly with some of the things meant to honor Taine’s heritage, and Freddie’s honeymoon surprise for him. This was a wonderful way to bring this series to a close, and for me Haka Ever After was a 4-star read and true HEA. This story is not meant to be a standalone; at the absolute minimum you should read The Caretaker first, but I would recommend reading the entire series in order so you have the full background of all the characters from the series. This book is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.

    This is the perfect ending to an amazing series. The cast of characters from the Sin Bin series is back to celebrate the wedding of Freddie and Taine, and it includes Taine asking permission.

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!

    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.

    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.

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.

    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. 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.

    There comes along, once in a rare while, a book that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzie inside. A book that is far too stinking cute for its own good. A book that wraps up an ENTIRE series in so few pages. A book that is simply, brilliant. This is book 7 in the Sin Bin series, and if you are just coming across this book, you should at the very LEAST read book two, The Caretaker, which is where Freddie and Taine meet.

A book that is far too stinking cute for its own good. A book that wraps up an ENTIRE series in so few pages. A book that is simply, brilliant. This is book 7 in the Sin Bin series, and if you are just coming across this book, you should at the very LEAST read book two, The Caretaker, which is where Freddie and Taine meet. You should read them all, though! Taine plucks up the courage to ask Freddie to marry him, but first he asks for Freddie's fathers permission. Since their first meeting wasn't exactly a tea party, Taine has reservations they won't chop him up and hide the pieces! But the fathers surprise him, and then Taine has to actually propose. The proposal delivers, for me, the best line of the book! Freddie asks, "why marriage?" Taine replies, "When they write our story after we're gone, it should read that I loved you more than anything else in the world. More than rugby. More than you love cheese. I want our names connected - intertwined. Legally. So no knobdobbers can claim I wasn't dedicated to you. So, will you marry me?" The wedding plans are amusing, with all the previous characters taking part. So you can imagine what they all get up to! There is, of course, some messing about with food, cos ya'll know Ms Donovan's boys like to play with their food! Bit that made me cry?? When all of Taine's rugby team mates perform the Haka at the wedding. That bit made me cry more that what happened on the honeymoon! It's always sad to see a series end, but what a way to go! 5 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Taine and Freddie's book, The Caretaker (The Sin Bin #2) was my first book in this series, and they are still my favorite couple.

Taine wants to marry Freddie, but first feels the need to ask for Freddie's fathers for their blessing. Considering the first time Taine met them in Book 2, I could see why he was so nervous. However, I was beyond happy to see them correct and try to undo the damage they did when Freddie brought Taine to meet them. I don't want to spoil more from the story. There's a lot of highjinks that only Taine, his former rugby teammates, and Freddie and his friends can get into. The opening scene with Taine and Freddie was pretty funny and a great way to start this journey to their wedding. I loved that Freddie knew that Taine was up to something. I loved the surprise that the other rugby players put together for Taine. I loved the surprise that Freddie had for Taine as well. There were so many good feels and laughs to be had in this story. *** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie for my reading pleasure, a review wasn't a requirement. ***

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.

They are one giant family. Often dysfunctional but still family. I can’t say enough about this book or the series. I am beyond words at the series being over. Hopefully we will get some more of them in some way in the future. I love Dahlia and all her books. I can’t wait to read her next series. Congrats on this fabulous series.

I liked how the important parts were worked out and highlighted in a way that made it impossible not to root for the two main characters and their friends, not to laugh and smile with them. I really enjoyed this book and think it was a good ending for the whole series that is one of the few good rugby series out there. 3.5 stars

    Haka Ever After is an absolutely delightful conclusion to the Sin Bin series. The story focuses on Taine and Freddie, and they are adorable together. We also get to visit with some past favorites from the series as this sweet couple gets ready to tie the knot. This one is easily read in an hour or less and is a great mix of sweet, sexy, witty, and charming. With zero angst, Freddie and Taine's happily ever after is lighthearted fun with plenty of reasons to smile.
