Sonny James and Luki Vasquez are living proof that the course of love never runs smoothly. Ambushed by grief, Sonny listens to a voice singing the blues from beyond the grave. While revisiting the sorrows and failings of his past, in the here and now he puts up a wall against love. Just when Luki chips through that barricade, the couple becomes the target of a new threat from outside: an escalating and unexplainable rash of break-ins and assaults.
Thoughts of infidelity rise between them, a threat that may strain their newly mended love past its limits. To come through the trials alive and together, Luki and Sonny will have to unite against enemies who were once friends and overcome crippling hatred and overwhelming fear. If they succeed, maybe then they can rekindle the twin flames of passion and love.
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 longer than it should have. There were a few places that lagged and I just wanted to get on with the story. But overall I enjoyed the second book in the Vasquez and James series. Luki and Sonny continued their tumultuous on-again, off-again, on-again relationship. I was happier with how things turned out at the end but obviously they still have more story to tell.
