    Beautiful Cover, but I just wasn t feeling the characters I was first attracted to this book a few weeks back when the cover was revealed on Facebook, and reading the blub my interest was piqued I am not a Josh Lanyon aficionado like some other readers, but I do like a good crime thriller and romance combined with plenty of action in and out of the bedroom Blood Red Butterfly starts out really well and I was engrossed in the investigation the suspect Micky Torres, his Alibi Kai Tashiro and Beautiful Cover, but I just wasn t feeling the characters I was first attracted to this book a few weeks back when the cover was revealed on Facebook, and reading the blub my interest was piqued I am not a Josh Lanyon aficionado like some other readers, but I do like a good crime thriller and romance combined with plenty of action in and out of the bedroom Blood Red Butterfly starts out really well and I was engrossed in the investigation the suspect Micky Torres, his Alibi Kai Tashiro and of course the Homicide Detective Ryo Miller Ryo is unable to contain his frustration when all his instincts were telling him that Torres murdered the 70 year old Esther Martinez, a heinous crime, he is convinced was committed in revenge Yet out of the blue Torres now has an alibi, a 24 year old femme dude, Kai Toshiro, someone he is familiar with only because his advances had been rejected onthan one occasion in the gay bar Fubar, giving Kai the nickname Ice Princess for his cold and aloof nature.The fact that he was giving Torres a convicted murderer and a suspect in the killing an alibi was only compounding his frustration even , and he can t quite understand what Torres has that he doesn t Because of his conviction he wants to believe that the alibi is bogus yet his cops instinct tells him Kai is being truthful but he is determined to prove otherwise So he believes he is telling the truth but still believes Torres to be the murderer A night at Fubar and his powers of persuasion get him a night with Kai, and this is where it falls apart for me, and gets very clouded and confusing as I felt it was no longer about the investigation butabout his ego As a cop he makes some very bizarre decisions and his relationship with Kai to me was cold, lacking in passion and I wasn t feeling any connection between them, the whole thing was impersonal Kai is very angry and pissed off with the World and lives up to the name of Ice Princess, and what they have together was an extremely volatile relationship grounded on nothing yet Ryo wants to give up everything for this man the second time they get together It took to reach the end of the book and sometime later for me to actually feel a connection with the characters,something I wanted much earlier on, and really it was just a conversation and an explanation of all the fuck ups, misunderstandings, and what had really been going on But unfortunately it was all too late for me I haven t yet read a book from Mr Lanyon that I truly loved, it has nothing to do with his writing as I love the style so perhaps I really need to read one of hispopular books to experience him as others do.I am sure other readers will love this and again, his writing is excellent but I was just unable to connect with the characters, I will not yet give up on Mr Lanyon but on this occasion, sorry, I just wasn t feeling it So for the cover, writing, the beginning and the ending I give this 3 stars Forreview, please check out Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews and you can also find us on Facebook

    No one does LA like Lanyon.So, this was a bithyperbolic than I m use to from Lanyon, but the details and history of LA are great, and the tie in between Kai and his art gives it a interesting mirrored quality Also, Lanyon writes police officers well, which I really appreciate.

    I ll probably be in the minority here, but I thought this was disappointing I wanted to like it I consider Josh Lanyon an oasis of mature, thoughtful m m writing This was just not my book The characters seemed cold and inaccessible, and I didn t see why they loved each other Ryo s feelings in particular seemedlike an obsession The writing wasn t as polished as usual, with several commas where there shouldn t have been any and some odd word choices for example, masseuse instead of I ll probably be in the minority here, but I thought this was disappointing I wanted to like it I consider Josh Lanyon an oasis of mature, thoughtful m m writing This was just not my book The characters seemed cold and inaccessible, and I didn t see why they loved each other Ryo s feelings in particular seemedlike an obsession The writing wasn t as polished as usual, with several commas where there shouldn t have been any and some odd word choices for example, masseuse instead of masseur Maybe I m being too picky, but Lanyon s previous works have set the bar high

    3.10 starsA huge disappointment, it gets 3 stars because it was a great idea which fell short Kai and Ryo, I guess I missed the attraction, the burn or sizzle between them, my heart wasn t racing or feeling any heartbreak The Yaoi Manga references went over my head, I didn t get most of them, a bit of a mishmash unfortunately I want and miss Adrien, that best describes my feelings.

    Hear me silently, happily squeeing DMe I m in love with this book.More after I read it again Second try after having settled down a bit I m hugely impressed by how this worked out I had been a bit afraid in the beginning because, you know, how do you transfer a visual art like manga into written word It worked really, really well and the result is a wonderful story filled with action and emotion to the brim.I wonder how it might look and feel for Hear me silently, happily squeeing DMe I m in love with this book.More after I read it again Second try after having settled down a bit I m hugely impressed by how this worked out I had been a bit afraid in the beginning because, you know, how do you transfer a visual art like manga into written word It worked really, really well and the result is a wonderful story filled with action and emotion to the brim.I wonder how it might look and feel for someone who hasn t read manga and BL shonen ai yaoi in particular For me and I have read my fair share of them it worked like a charm Every scene triggered a vivid image of a manga panel I could see the story drawn right there on the pages of the book It felt a bit like following Ryo and Kai around with a camera, every angle was right and every vantage point chosen to highlight Ryo and Kai s connection and to draw you in Me very much in love with this book

    3.85 rounded up I read this late last night in bed insomnia girl I was really excited to see that Josh had brought out another novella and the concept was intriguing It has all the right things going for it and you can t deny that Mr lanyon is the dogs doodahs at writing short stories that never make you feel short changed He s way high in my favourite authors list and I so wanted to be giving it 5 stars but I couldn t do it this time I think it boils down to the fact that at times 3.85 rounded up I read this late last night in bed insomnia girl I was really excited to see that Josh had brought out another novella and the concept was intriguing It has all the right things going for it and you can t deny that Mr lanyon is the dogs doodahs at writing short stories that never make you feel short changed He s way high in my favourite authors list and I so wanted to be giving it 5 stars but I couldn t do it this time I think it boils down to the fact that at times during the story I felt a bit disconnected from Ryo and Kai Without giving any spoilers away I found their relationship a bit contradictory at times, Kai s reactions to Ryo didn t always gel but there were some sizzling moments between them I still enjoyed it and it kept me reading into the early hours so its staying in my keepers It may be that a second time round will give me a different prospective, you never know I still heart you Josh and I would still recommend it

    I m still not quite sure how I feel about this book.Kai and Ryo were just a bit too aloof and distant for me to grow attached to or care about.I, in theory liked them and felt for them, but in reality I didn t really like them or feel for them The whole crazy Torres thing added in on top complete with the showdownidk, at the end I still felt sort of sad.
