A Shot of J&B is the first book in the Vasquez Inc by Lou Sylvre.
This book isn’t a mystery but an introduction, or rather re-introduction, to the main characters. These men, Brain Harrison and Jackie Vasquez met when both were much younger and there was an immediate connection. For reasons, only one of which was the fact he was only sixteen, Jackie was in no position to enter into a relationship. Brian recognizes this and puts his feelings for Jackie on his mental backburner, realizing when and if the right time ever came, their patience would pay off. Fate smiles on Brian and brings he and Jackie together again enough years later they’re both adults.
Throughout the story Brian and Jackie rediscover each other. At first, it’s mainly through correspondence but eventually Brian arranges a weekend getaway for the two of them. Both of these young men are multilayered and complicated people. They’re cautious when it comes opening up to other people and that makes for a very interesting dynamic between them. They have common kinky desires and begin their exploration, falling in love along the way. The Dom/sub element of their lives falls into place naturally, but not too quickly, which is nice. The reader gets to savor their journey without being rushed along.
There is a set up for the mystery to come in the next book in the series and we’re introduced to a truly diabolical villain.
A Shot of J&B is a quick, hot, emotionally charged story that will draw the reader into the world of Vasquez Inc.
