there are no winners Reader Advisory This book contains some graphic scenes Fantastic story I love AJ s books but this is the first one by John Simpson that I have read so wasn t sure what to expect This is an action packed thriller that is quite graphic in places where it needs to be I loved the couple and their developing relationship as well as the trials they faced Great insight into the the Yakuza culture. Shiro Yamada is half Hawaiian, born of a Japanese mother in Hawaii where he feels at home When his mother, who is of somewhat easy virtue, falls for Yakuza boss Shun ichi Harada and goes missing in Tokyo, Shiro sets about finding her by ways of infiltrating the Harada clan But he is uncovered soon enough His immediate boss Nobuo san, an ice cold sadist, takes his cruel delight in punishing Shiro for his lies with torture and afterwards presenting him with an awful challenge Shun ichi Harad Shiro Yamada is half Hawaiian, born of a Japanese mother in Hawaii where he feels at home When his mother, who is of somewhat easy virtue, falls for Yakuza boss Shun ichi Harada and goes missing in Tokyo, Shiro sets about finding her by ways of infiltrating the Harada clan But he is uncovered soon enough His immediate boss Nobuo san, an ice cold sadist, takes his cruel delight in punishing Shiro for his lies with torture and afterwards presenting him with an awful challenge Shun ichi Harada, the head of the Yakuza clan, is under arrest in New York Only one man can send Shun ichi Harada to prison, NYPD Detective Kono Takumi, who d been undercover in the Harada organization for a year Nobuo san sends Shiro to New York, commanding him to kill Kono within two days, or Shiro s mother and his friend Miki will die Even the life of Shiro s beloved grandmother back home in Hawaii might be at stakes Shiro knows the threat to the women is real, his own body bearing wounds to witness that fact But Shiro is no killer What s , he has felt an instant attraction to his assigned target from the moment he lays eyes on Kono s face in a photo But how can he risk his own life and the lives of three innocent women on behalf of a total stranger Ever since Kono Takumi has returned from his undercover assignment in Tokyo, he has been looking over his shoulder He knows the Yakuza killers are after him Faced with the decision of going into hiding with Witness Protection or in a remote police post in Far Rockaway, Kono refuses to cower His new department, although reputed to be one of the hardest precincts in the NYPD, turns out to have upright colleagues and an impressive leader, Lieutenant Loo Jerrell, who has no problems both kicking his men s asses as well as having their backs When the threat of falling prey to a Yakuza assassin suddenly becomes very real for Kono two weeks before the crucial trial, Kono has to think very fast about how he can get out of this mess alive.Both Kono and Shiro are well rounded characters In a way, Shiro is some kind of anti hero who stumbles head over heels into something that is way to big for him, a fact he only realizes when it s almost too late Although he s scared to death, he doesn t run screaming, but faces the challenge and shows true courage Kono is a no nonsense kind of man, very self confident and determined to make his own destiny against all odds Yet, he isn t too stubborn to ask for help if he has to, and puts his trust firmly into justice and the law like a good law enforcer should.I always though that John Simpson s and AJ Llewellyn s writing styles were not too far apart, and after reading this, I think those two authors make a fine writing pair Their styles merge into a clear and crisp narrative, which makes for a fast paced reading, although the many short sentences come across a little breathless at times A few times the conciseness reminds of a court report or a police log, which might be intentional given that a big part of the action involves police procedures The latter ring true with realism right down to the goings on of everyday business in an ill reputed and out of the way police district The story is set in Tokyo, New York, and Hawaii, with all three settings vivid and carrying a distinct feeling of location.What I like best about John Simpson s writing is the way his characters get about what they want without a lot of rigmarole Once they make a decision, they stick to it and set about making it work, just like Shiro does after he makes up his mind to defy the Yakuza, just like Kono does after he gets past his inhibitions.In hisrecent works, I found that A.J Llewellyn wielded a deadly pen when it came to characterization, and I was delighted to find the same poignant observations here, particularly with some of the minor characters, like the greek waitress or Shiro s friend Miki who came alive on just a few well placed sentences And Shiro s grandmother was a real gem, all Arsenic and Old Lace with a decent dash of the Goddess Pele thrown in.Normally I don t care overly much if an author is male or female as long as the story is well written In this case, though, the writing felt distinctively male, straightforward and unadorned, which fit the storyline nicely This was also true for the sex scenes of which there were a lot which were graphic, right to the point, not without emotion but bare of sentimentality.All in all, a gripping, fast, entertaining if at times a tad bloodthirsty read I d recommend to fans of mystery, thrillers and hot cops I was completely disappointed by this book It had a lot of promise but just didn t deliver The story was good, and there were parts where I had no idea how it could possibly end happily without anyone important ending up on the run forever But there were disjointed info dumps mixed with too many flashbacks The story was confusing and repetitive Here s an example of something that didn t make sense to me at all A hypnotic disco beat made Shiro s food inadvertently tap against the leg of his I was completely disappointed by this book It had a lot of promise but just didn t deliver The story was good, and there were parts where I had no idea how it could possibly end happily without anyone important ending up on the run forever But there were disjointed info dumps mixed with too many flashbacks The story was confusing and repetitive Here s an example of something that didn t make sense to me at all A hypnotic disco beat made Shiro s food inadvertently tap against the leg of his bar stool At the age of twenty three, the disco era had bypassed him his generation was hot wired to different times, so his body s response to the music surprised him.What disco era person goes to clubs still Why would you have to be raised with a type of music to find it easy to find rhythm Who is so aware of their body that they would consciously think something like this Here s another example of bad writing His cell phone ran gas he walked outside His feet touched the wet pavement He d forgotten his shoes inside The front door clicked shut He had no choice but to press the buzzer again When Keizo heard his voice, he was silent for a beat.That kind of short sentence writing drives me crazy I also was confused at first because I thought he stepped outside because his phone rang so I didn t understand why he immediately had to go back inside The fact that his phone rang was never mentioned again.There were good parts One thing I liked was the first sex scene where there is painting during it the imagery was beautiful Some people might be bothered by it, though, because it s between the MC and someone who isn t the other MC, someone he cares about deeply Another thing I really liked was that when one of the MCs was tortured, he vomited and urinated all over himself The later rarely happens to MCs.Another thing I was impressed with was how different the parts that took place in Japan felt from the parts that took place in the US did There was something about it that just felt like another world than I m used to and not always in a good way But that was fine because it was also the world of the Yakuza Sometimes it was specific experiences, like booking a hotel room from a big light up board in the lobby, but sometimes it was just the way the descriptions were worded, I think I was surprised to find it was written by A.J Llewellyn because it felt so different from her other work and so much like it was written by a Japanese national or first gen immigrant.But the bad outweighed this There was switching of POV from paragraph to paragraph which is a huge pet peeve of mine A high level Yakuza man does his own dirty work and flies to harass an old woman for information Sex traffickers are highly interested in a woman who couldn t be younger than 37 and was mostly likely in her 40s She s much too old They would have no interest.There is way too much sex The MCs have sex for hours and hours at a time without doing anything else I didn t buy the love connection at all Shiro is very arrogant While looking at himself in the mirror he thinks, How could Kono not want to possess such a body This wasn t to psych himself up to go try to lure the man He convinced he already has him He s just preening And this came in the same scene where he had just found out that the man he really cared about view spoiler was dead hide spoiler Although they didn t have a relationship so his interest in Kono wasn t really cheating, Shiro s interest was farthan just seeing Keizo as a fuck buddy Scavenger Hunt note This is a story about the Yakuza and cops and there isn t a single tattoo on the cover Bummer This story didn t really hold my interest, hence the really long time it took to read through it I did not feel very connected to Shiro or Kono, nor did I feel much connection between them I thought the sex scene between the unfortunate Keizo and Shiro was far hotter withof a connection between the men than anything that occurred between Shiro and Kono The coming together of Shiro and Kono seemed very contrived and forced.There were a few holes in the timeline and things felt a little j This story didn t really hold

unfortunate Keizo and Shiro was far hotter withof a connection between the men than anything that occurred between Shiro and Kono The coming together of Shiro and Kono seemed very contrived and forced.There were a few holes in the timeline and things felt a little jumpy after Shiro arrived in New York The big thing for me was the editing It was sloppy misspelled character name, typos, wrong word usage Additionally, I found that allowing British esque spellings in US settings with US characters was very distracting I was even put off that the narration listed stops in Dallas, Texas, then Los Angeles as if Los Angeles can be identified without its state but Dallas could not There aren t many Americans who would not assume Dallas, Texas, especially when talking about transcontinental flights It was kind of the straw that broke the camel s back for me If I hadn t had such a rough time with the rest of the book this probably wouldn t have tipped me over the edge Alas, it did.I ll probably round this down to 2 stars for my review Just didn t work for me ETA I think that given all Kono and Shiro went through and are likely to go through because of the Yakuza, the nickname endearment My Yakuza is in poor taste Lord, where do I even begin with this I didn t want to dislike this book It had an interesting blurb.The way the story played out was silly Also, I think the reader was better off NOT being able to see what the characters were thinking because it made them seem really obnoxious.ExampleHe looked down his chest in the mirror and was pleased with what he saw

characters How could Kono see Shiro s toes curling while having sex with him Just what kind of position were they in It seemed standard from the description and that just made no sense.I might have beenforgiving of this book if the sex had made sense Instead the sex scenes were ridiculous and the dialogue extremely cheesy.Ugh Just ugh It s very rare when I can t find a lot of positives to say about a book but this is one of those times The story surrounds a young man named Shiro who tries to infiltrate the Yakuza in Toyko to find his mother He doesn t succeed, and in fact, is pressed into service by the Yakuza to kill a key witness, a NYPD detective who is due to testify against their leader Long story short, he joins forces with the cop to thwart the Yakuza I found the plot simplistic

solution The sex was given way too many pages, and the two MCs never had the chemistry I would have hoped for Shiro was ready to jump Kona from the moment he saw his picture, so when he met him in real time, it was all systems go There certainly never seemed to be a deep emotional connection The authors could have used a really good beta reader because there were quite a few holes in the story and facts that weren t correct I m being generous in giving this one a two star rating There wasn t much of anything that I liked about this book The dialogue was almost robotic and monotone The characters were very poorly developed Other than one being a cop and one being a student turned undercover Yakuza there wasn t much to them at all They had sex non stop for supposedly hours and hours for an entire month It wasn t even very descriptive or hot sex The plot was completely unbelievable and had lots of loose ends Supposedly the day was saved by a 60 year old woman and no There wasn t

with other people I honestly felt like there wasof a connection between the MCs and these other characters than there were between the MCs Anyways, I don t think I will read anyof this author Generously going for 2.5 sThis could of been so much better.The story line was good I felt they through sex in every time they lost direction w the story The sex scenes are repetitive The actual dialogue between the MC s had narrated moments The frequent japanese words w out definition was irritating.
