Title: Loving Luki Vasquez
Author: Lou Sylvre
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Rating: 3.75 of 5 Stars
Reclusive weaver Sonny Bly James controls every color and shape in his tapestries, but he can’t control the pattern of his life—a random encounter with Luki Vasquez, ex-ATF agent and all-around badass, makes that perfectly clear. The mutual attraction is immediate, but love-shy Sonny has retreated from life, and Luki wears his visible and not-so-visible scars like armor. Neither can bare his soul with ease.
While they run from desire, they can’t hide from the evil that hunts them. After it becomes clear that a violent stalker has targeted Sonny, Luki’s protective instincts won’t let him run far, especially when Sonny’s family is targeted as well. Whether they can forgive or forget, Sonny and Luki will have to call a truce and work together to save Sonny’s nephew and fight an enemy intent on making sure loving Luki Vasquez is the last mistake Sonny will ever make.
Luki and Sonny are one of the most interesting couples I have come across lately. I can’t honestly say that I loved them but they kept me intrigued and wanting to know more. From the moment they look at each other you know something more is going to happen, even though both men are relationship phobic and have no idea what they are doing.
The fantastic writing really draws you into the story. There is a complex plot with a lot of back story and it is certainly a book that requires a lot of focus whilst reading. For me it seemed a little too complicated but it did keep me guessing until almost the end.
Luki and Sonny are dragged into a kind of murder, mystery hate crime that they wrongly make assumptions about at first. Young teens are being used and abused and the hunt is on to find the mysterious Mr K who is behind it all. During the investigation Sonny and Luki grow closer but both have major issues from their pasts that make things difficult possibly even impossible.
As things come to a climatic end the true source of all the hatred and who it was aimed at becomes clear. There wasn’t really any closure given though at the end of the book so it is straight onto Book 2 to find out what happens next.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
