Bleu had a very addictive personality inherited from both parents. While Noah loves her unconditionally Iman has conditions with his love for her. The ending upset me but I won't spoil it for anyone else. A third book is highly anticipated. There are plenty of loose ends that could be tied up. I read this book quickly without wanting to put it down.

This book is raw. It shows without sugarcoating how addiction will wreck your life and destroy everything around you. It shows without remorse how drugs corrupt men and actions that are deemed in society as punishable by death are accepted as norm in this world. Bleu has fallen to the very bottom of the hole and doesnt seem anything can save her. She settles for being second woman to Iman just to stay in his life. She doesn't seem this as addiction but rather overwhelming love. Iman's brother n ...more

This is not the level of writing that I have come to expect from the husband and wife duo. I realize it was the wife solo on this project, but maybe her other half is what was missing. :( I felt like chunks of the story were missing. There was maybe a paragraph worth of "luxe" that was to be relied on for us to believe the lead had such a far fall from grace.

I see the reviews and feel like we listened to two different books.

3.5 stars

This was a tricky book for me to rate. It took about 100 pages or so for me to even care what was happening to the main character, Bleu. I won this book in a giveaway and jumped right into reading it without reading the 1st book and I thought that was part of the problem. While this book can be read as a standalone novel, I think starting with the 1st book of the series will help the reader understand Bleu's journey into crack addiction much better.

I. Was. Not. Ready *insert crying emoji*
I will agree with many others and say I was not pleased with (part of) the ending. The author did what a good author would do and that's give the readers something that wouldn't expect/like lol. After everything I still was torn between Noah and Iman, if I had to choose, but the way Bleu broke it down made sense. And the way things were going you wouldn't think that girl (Bleu) was ever going to catch a break, sheesh! Either way I enjoyed this instal

I wanted to read both books before writing my opinion. I felt like there was so much left open before ending. Iman's brother-in-law wanted him dead, so that he could have what he felt was rightly his. Did Iman find out who killed his wife? Why didn't Bleu tell Iman who was supplying her? She told Noah about his girlfriend. I know that Bleu was supposed to be "innocent", but she was too naive. Especially for her street background. Almost every page, she was crying about something.

Not what i expected

Bleu's addiction was something serious. Noah was truly a selfless lover. His love for Bleu was pure and I was disappointed that I did not get to read about them having a happily ever after. Really to have him just killed like that was low and that was the main reason for my rating.

I was so disappointed in Lux book 2 as well. I like books that has substance, purpose, realistic drama, connection, thriller and intriguing follow on. This book had none of those things to offer. I don’t think I will be reading any of the wife solo books anymore. I enjoy reading husband and wife because it’s more exciting and has a great storyline I could follow.

Ashley Antoinette has written another page turning novel that I could not put down. If you read the first book to this series, then you know all of the troubles that Bleu Montclair was faced with. In this book, Bleu is battling against the same demons and a few new problems that come along. What I love about this book is that it is written so detailed and life like. A lot of the situations that happen can easily be imagined because we may all know someone who has been on one side

Just Say No!

It is of my opinion that, if you have a predisposition running amuck in your family, the best thing for you to do is stay totally away for that thing because it will ultimately destroy you!!!
Noah was definitely one of the good guys and I hated to read of his demise; however, Bleu carried on... for her son and for herself!!! I'm sad Iman didn't get the girl but he has a son and that's better than any chick!!! I would definitely like to read more of Iman again!!!

Overall, I feel like it’s a 3.5. There were chunks of the story that was missing. For example “Did Iman ever find out who killed his wife?”, “What happened between Iman and his brother in law cinco?” “Who is Saviour’s real father?” etc. This story was very dark in the begin, but I liked how at the end we saw the main character going on in a positive direction. I really liked how Bleu broke down why she choice to stay with one rather than the other. Honestly, it’s still very hard to pick between ...more

I couldn't put this book down. It picked up where the other book left off. Bleu struggled so much in her life. This book really shows how strong addiction is and it's triggers. Bleu finally got her life together in the end. You can't help but to root for her. This is the best book of 2016.

I really didn't care for this book. It is a story about drugs with some "romance" thrown in. I know this might seem petty but I also didn't like the cover art. Not something I would normally go to a bookstore and pick out just based on the cover alone. I am glad I received this as a free copy.

Worth the tears!

This book kept me interested from beginning to end. There were so many times I was choked up and felt as though I was there with Bleu! Awesome Awesome read!

Rating: 3.5 stars...

Ugh! This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. I cried REAL TEARS at the end because it was so unexpected. I'm a sucker for happy endings and I really wanted that for Bleu and Noah.

While I did enjoy this book, I felt it left a lot of questions unanswered. I feel like all the questions I have could potentially make up a Luxe 3 (that's just how much has been left out).

Why didn't Iman ever find out about Cinco's master plan and that he was the per

This story was a little better than part 1 but it's not necessarily my favorite series. Blue is still simple & weak. Certain parts of the books timeline didn't add up. Like when Bleu found out she was pregnant she was 12 weeks (3 months) but when she got the 1st text from Iman she said she had been clean for 6 months. Well she was didn't stop getting high until she found out she was pregnant at 12 weeks which to me means 3months of pregnancy plus 6 months of sobriety equals 9 months of a ful ...more

Great read, I couldn't put it down. Without giving it away, I wish it had ended better. I was happy for Bleu. And at so many points I had to check myself and remember this was a fictional novel and I couldn't go to LA and personally kick Iman and Cinco's --- myself. (SORRY) I just had to get that out. In away I wish their was another book, I feel Naomi needs to be put to rest for her wrong doings by Noah's father or someone. Yet Bleu's story was one of real life and the strengths of a young sing ...more

Okay so I didn’t like this book. It was so many unanswered questions!! All of that stuff that went down and the mess with Cinco! Then Bleu was too naive! Like man she came from the streets but she fell for everything she saw! Man... just too much went on in this book to have ended the way it did. It’s like the author got tired of the story and just killed Noah off! Then who’s really Savior’s daddy?? Too much was mentioned to just end the series like this. It was wack!

This was one of the most emotional books ever! It was raw, hurtful, grimy, loving, hurtful and yet dealt with real life issues! I wanted to smack Bleu so many times and to know that Noah would ! I've heaven and earth for her was so deep and heartfelt! I hate they didn't get their happily ever after! It broke me down frfr! There were a few grammatical errors but overall a great 5 star novel! I hated to see it end! Excellent storyline Ashley!

I’m have to wait a day or two just to read again. (can’t focus) Just finished reading Luxe 2 and it did something to me. I cried throughout the book.
Noah love for Bleu.
Bleu and her mother crucial yet healing moment.
Damn this book did a number on my heart!
I 🙏🏾 part 3 is in the works because Naomi and DaMarcus needs to be handle!
