Blurb: Luki Vasquez and Sonny Bly James finally have their Hawaiian wedding, and it’s perfect, almost. But their three-phase honeymoon is riddled with strife. Luki’s status as a working badass spells discord for the newlyweds. A former informant from Luki’s days with ATFE brings a troubling message (or is it a warning?) from a Mob hit man. When Luki’s sixteen-year-old nephew, Jackie, is lured into capture and torture by a sadistic killer, the honeymoon is well and truly over. 

The couple put aside their differences and focus on the grueling hunt, which takes them from leather bars to dusty desert back roads, and calls on Sonny’s deep compassion as well as Luki’s sharpest skills. Their world threatens to fall apart if they fail, but their love may grow stronger than ever if they succeed in finding Jackie—before it’s too late.

Review: This story is part of a series and must be read in order. Luki and Sonny are having their Hawaiian wedding before they embark on their RV honeymoon, but they don’t get to enjoy it like they should when Luki receives a job offer. That could come in handy, until the past rears its ugly head determined to enact revenge. Sonny and Luki have to put their differences aside as they embark on a cross-country hunt. It needs the skills of both men as they search for Jackie, who has been lured into a trap and whose life is now in danger.

Okay, first on a light note: if I was related to Luki or Sonny I would be heading for an unmarked small Island to live out my life in peace. Luki and Sonny think that the past is the past and are looking forward to their honeymoon; little do they know that someone is smarting because of their actions in Delsyn’s Blues. Luki’s nephews are still recovering from their fathers’ actions with Jackie struggling. Jackie gets lured into a trap by a sadistic killer who is determined to make Luki pay for his actions. Sonny struggles with Luki’s decision with work and Luki is a little resentful about Sonny’s weaving.

Lou Sylvre drags us back into the world of Sonny and Luki with another devastating adventure. Sonny still has moments of grief about Delsyn. Luki feels that he needs the advantage of a badge and they are both completely happy with their marriage. Things go really bad for them though when Rita (an old snitch of Luki’s) comes to them with a message and then Jackie goes missing from home. From then on, there is a cross-country hunt with Luki initiating new recruit Brian in the ways of Luki. With a daring rescue to pull off Luki and Sonny have to face their fears.

This is a brilliant book that just won’t let you out of its grip. Jackie is such a sweet kid who is just looking to find himself, but through a twist of fate he finds himself the victim of a sadistic killer. The scenes with Jackie will have your eyes filling as he realizes his chance of rescue is slim. Loki and Sonny are as we remember them with Luki having relaxed just a bit so his edges are a touch smoother. The action and danger are excellent. The storyline is brilliant and the characters are wonderful. There are steamy sex scenes and touching moments, heart to hearts and facing fears, this book has it all.

I recommend this story to all those who love suspense, action, romance, love, hot sex, emotional scenes, danger and the baddie getting his.
