Six years ago, Brian Harrison helped save the life of Jackie Vasquez, and he’s never really forgotten him. After the rescue, Brian ended his employment with Jackie's uncle Luki and left the US for England, aiming to distance himself from the confused feelings—not lust, but not brotherly—that then sixteen-year-old Jackie engendered. Now Jackie has become a man, and when they meet again by chance, lust with a dose of D/s rope kink is definitely on the list of possibilities. As they get to know each other, though, lust shows every sign of growing into love, deep and true.

When Jackie moves to London for graduate studies in criminal psychology, he and Brian hope they’ll be able to enjoy each other's frequent company. But they haven't factored in the claim Brian's police job with Scotland Yard will make on his time, especially when the “Gaslighter crimes” sap investigative resources. An abandoned aide dog named Soldier leads to a breakthrough clue, and a chain of discoveries fall like dominoes. As Brian rushes to beat the criminal’s game before it escalates to true terror, he comes to an undeniable conclusion: Jackie Vasquez, the man he loves, is in mortal danger.

“So, anyway, Brian,” he said, ending a not uncomfortable lull in the conversation. “I’m looking forward to the ride to airport. I want to hear more about your work, and London, and whatever. But,” he gestured toward the window, “here comes Sonny and Luki and Bear. I’ll get more coffee on.”

He rose, but before he turned toward the kitchen, he faced Brian and leaned forward, kissed his cheek swiftly and softly. He intended to step away, but Brian caught first one of his hands, and then the other, and held them both in one hand.

“Jackie, thank you for that. But what I’d like even more is if you were to kiss me—” Brian lifted the index finger of his free hand and touched his own lips. “—just here. Will you?”

“Yes,” Jackie whispered, and without any conscious decision to do so, added, “Yes, sir.” He leaned forward and touched his open lips to Brian’s, found them soft when he added a bit of pressure, and sent his tongue darting just inside for a taste. They broke the kiss together, but as it ended, Brian sucked and then nipped at Jackie’s bottom lip.

Brian smiled, and after he let go of Jackie’s hand, stroked once over Jackie’s shoulder and arm—a comforting touch, Jackie thought. “Thank you, Jackie,” Brian said, his eyes sparking with something like mischief. “That was lovely.”

  2. I haven't read any of Lou Sylvre's yet, but they sound awesome!

    and well.. I love ALL of Lou's books but for reals, I especially love this series! the Vasquez series. There is not one book I don't love in it. Ahh!! I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE'S GOING TO BE MORE!! I'm so freaking excited!! YAY!! YAY!!!! akdjf;alksdjf;lj

  4. This is a new author to me and this book sounds interesting.

  5. I haven't read any of Lou's books, but they are on my TBR list

  6. Never read any of Lou's book, but so no favorite yet... But I have to say A Shot of J&B will probably be my least favorite one as I really "hate" it when a man has more beautiful hair than I ;-)

  7. I only read Loving Luki Vasquez ,loved it

  8. Yes, it made me cry but at the same time fall harder for Sonny and Luki.

  9. I have not read m/m books for long I just got turned on this genre(HA,HA). Any how I have not read anything from Lou but I am looking forward to read for Lou. But I thank you for the intro to any new M/M writer.

  10. I'm so excited to see a new Vazquez book! WooHoo!!! Looking forward to gluing my eyeballs to this series. Much success!

  11. Lou is a new author for me but I am excited to find the books have crime/mystery themes. Because I always have to start at the beginning I plan to start with Loving Luki Vasquez but have put all on my WANT TO READ List!

  12. Another exciting book from Lou Sylvre, I love her books they are so well written with wonderful characters and brilliant stories.

  13. A favorite book of Lou's? Can I just say a favorite series? ;) I love the Vasquez & James books so much, and hearing there's going to be more in that world, even if not with Luki and Sonny necessarily, I'm so happy!

  14. That's a difficult question, but I think I'm going to go with Yes. Even though it's short, it has a huge impact. I was first attracted to the series because I love textile arts, and have done needlework and macrame since I was a child. I also had a tiny loom, but never could afford one large enough to do what I would have liked with weaving. It's nice to see a contemporary character work in that field.
