More lists with this book...
Lou Sylvre, once again delivers a compelling, exciting and suspense filled slice of Luki and Sonny’s world, in Loving Luki I fell in love with her beautiful prose that endeared me to these two flawed and broken characters who are still at the fledgling stage of their relationship. The prologue to Delsyn’s Blues is heart breaking, and the consequences of this are the b ...more
After the events of the previous summer, where former ATF agent and now private security consultant Luki and weaver and artist Sonny faced certain death, the two have moved forward with their relationship. They share humor, smart ass attitudes, passion, and love for each other. Luki has basically moved in with Sonny and Delsyn, Sonny's nephew, who managed to survive being bled nearly to death in the same events that almost killed Luki and Sonny.
But no ...more
I got to 45% and....well sh*t....and WTF just happen!
My least favorite book. By, I still liked it a lot. I just hate unnecessary death in my books.
The first inital shock...The Prologue was sad, but thank goodness it's short, I often wonder, did that that really NEED to happen? And , gosh, after I got over that and yep, at 45% I was thrown out of my happy chair whilst reading this book.
This book was full of lot's of hum ...more

A lot of this book is about the faith and trust that builds between Luki and Sonny. Yes, there is a crime/drama in this but it's also about their relationship and the trials/tribulations both men have to g ...more
I don't know what it is about Luki and Sonny. Chemistry, physical appeal, sex, a wonderful balance of dark and light, broody and sunny. They are perfection.
The book does begin on a sad note, but I was invested in the story---mind and heart---before the ...more
What I like with the writing style is the ease with which the story is told, there is no akwardness. It is flowing so easily that sometimes it is even overflowing :P
The characters are also very compelling and distinct, though I didn't like some of the mushiness in the end.
James indian heriage was also much clearer in this story, something ...more
Professional badass Luki Vasquez and weaver Sonny James meet for the first time in Loving Luki Vasquez, and they might make a sizzling couple if they can ever get past the impulse to run the other way every time romance comes into view. Then again, they have to stay alive if they’re ever to see their wedding day, and tribulation, cruelty, and greed has a way o...more
I consider this more or less Sonny's story. Within it we find out a lot of the sweet, caring man who has captured Luki's heart. The same man who struggles with pain from both the present and the past. The one that loves Luki, but keeps him at a distance.
"If the heart can truly cry, Luki's did. It hurt with overwhelming and bittersweet joy."
When tragedy strikes, Luki returns to his Sonny. But the man standing in front of him is not the same one he left behind. ...more

Four and a half stars!
Sonny and Luki are back again in another action packed, suspense filled mystery. In this story we get a bigger glimpse at Sonny’s past. It made me want to hug Sonny at the same time as it helped to understand the way he is now. I hated what happened to Delsyn and would have liked for there to be a way to prevent it. There were some great clues for who the double crosser was, but Luki eventually figured it out. I actually thought it took him lon ...more
I think I enjoyed this more because the characters were now familiar. More was revealed from Sonny's past, but not how he can drive like a NASCAR trained, stunt-car expert. It also never explains how he got, or what, his doctorate is. It was still a very intriguing mystery. Also very sad, for Delsyn, as we never got to know him much at all. One of the villains is guessable, very early on. This doesn't detract from the mystery or all the purposes involved. Nothing ...more
Sometimes there are books that have such a good ending that I don't want a sequel. Then there are books that even with a good ending I feel like I need more. With this book,it was the latter. I liked the end of the first book but the sequel gave me the chance to get a better feeling for the characters and especially the Luki/Sonny relationship. Before,I was just too busy getting used to the unusual writing style and I couldn't really appreciate that Lou Sylvre created two amazing charac ...more
Rating: 4.25 stars out of 5

From my review; "Around these two multidimensional characters flow plots of great intricacy and deceit. And it reverberates from one story to the next, the past like a river who continues to overflow its banks and cover all the events to follow, its dirty waters touching everything and everyone in its path. Delsyn's Blues opens one year after the end of Loving Luki Vasquez. The men are separated and Delsyn is in a wheel ...more
I thought this story was just as shaky as the first book. It was erratic even due to Sonny’s “crazy moments” regardless of the supposed reason behind them. His characterization was just way too inconsistent.
And if you think about it, Luki brought all these debacles into Sonny’s life yeah? Hate crimes, drugs and all ...more
The writing was well done. The characters really popped this time for me. The author did a good job in describing emotions and scenes. The only flaw and reason for 4 instead of 5 is that it was a bit repetitive with the couple's conflict situation. Also the language used by the ...more
The feelings between Luki and Sonny never left--They were just put on hold for a bit. As the boys scramble around trying to untangle the lies and threats, they also have to unbottle their hurts and move into an even deeper relationship. Seriously, so m ...more
