Shiro Yamada has infiltrated a fearsome Yakuza clan in Tokyo in search of his missing mother, but now both their lives are at stake, unless he’s willing to kill a New York City cop.
Shiro Yamada’s problem has always been his lovely, wayward mum, Siono, who was whisked to her native city of Tokyo from their home in Honolulu, Hawaii by a mysterious businessman. Now she’s gone missing and may even be dead, according to a strange telephone call.
Scraping together money to fly to Tokyo, Shiro learns that his mum’s boyfriend was none other than Shun’ichi Harada, a major Yakuza clan leader. He has no choice but to infiltrate the deadly gang as a low-level bike messenger. He finds out his mother was forced into sexual slavery, but is she dead or alive?
Shiro puts his life at risk, and that of a young Yakuza prostitute, Miki, by asking too many questions. The Yakuza have figured out who Shiro is and if he wants to survive, he must travel to New York and eliminate a powerful enemy: Kono Takumi. The man’s crime? He is a NYPD detective who infiltrated the Yakuza to solve a murder mystery. Not only that, but Kono is gay, which the clan finds offensive.
Unfortunately, so is Shiro. Will he shoot to kill the one man he finds so attractive? Or is this a dangerous game in which there are no winners?

Customer ReviewsReview from Two LipsReviewed by Tina...a work of romantic suspense that put me on the edge of my seat...I really really enjoyed this story. I loved all the layers to it: the romance, the mystery and the suspense. I would love it if Mr. Llewellyn and Mr. Simpson would team up again to write more books along this same vein.Read the full review atMarch 2011Review From Rainbow Book ReviewsReviewed by SerenaIf you like stories with intense emotions and characters who will fight for their relationship, if you enjoy reading about stubborn men who go through considerable suffering before reaching their goals, and if you're looking for a hot, passionate read, you will probably like this book.Read the full review atFebruary 2011Review from Dark Diva ReviewsReviewed by Samhain QueeneIt’s an interesting story with good bones and AJ Llewellyn and John Simpson did an amazing job with the characters Kono and Shiro...The sex is hot and raw.

I felt Shiro’s pain and desperation to find his mom in Japan. But how do you find which doesn’t want to be found? I felt his pain when he learns he trusts in the wrong people and ends up on the bad side of a Needle and is told to kill someone who betrayed the Yakuza worse than he himself has. So in a game of cat and mouse and kill or be killed how do you save everyone you love and come out alive yourself? Well in walks the wonderfully sex and powerful Kono. Can the two of them find away to save everyone, themselves and not lose their hearts to love? Well I know the answer to all those question and many more you are going to have to Buy this book and read it. I can NOT express enough the Importance of reading this book. You will lose yourself in the beauty, the suspense and the ending. My only hope is that there is truly to come from this sexy and awesome duo. On a scale of 1-100 the awesomeness of this book would exceed Infinity! I can’t help it this Dynamic Duo is almost as awesome as when AJ and DJ team up (By far my most favorite Pairing) Lastly Hotness. This book is so hot I don’t know if I have a rating high enough so on a scale of 1-100 I rate this 100+ I am an avid reader and I am privileged to read many great books but My Yakuza is one for the Ages. It is truly now one of my top 10 Most talked about books. You don’t have to take my word for it I don’t think that there is going to be a reviewer out there that wont love this book as must or more than I do.December 2010
