How to format a Linq iQueryable query with a subquery

I have a query that looks like this:
return from delivery in db.Deliveries
                   where delivery.Sheets.Count == 0 && (delivery.Dealer.DealerName.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.Driver.DriverFirstName.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.Driver.DriverLastName.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.CreateDate.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.PONum.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.Initials.ToString().Contains(kword))
                   orderby delivery.CreateDate descending
                   select delivery;

There is a one to many relationship between Delivery and DeliveryParts. I would like to add a parts search to this query...something like:

return from delivery in db.Deliveries
                   where delivery.Sheets.Count == 0 && (delivery.Dealer.DealerName.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.Driver.DriverFirstName.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.Driver.DriverLastName.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.CreateDate.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.PONum.ToString().Contains(kword) || delivery.Initials.ToString().Contains(kword) || (SELECT COUNT from DeliveryParts WHERE partnumber LIKE '%kword%' > 0 ))
                   orderby delivery.CreateDate descending
                   select delivery;


Any help would be appreciated.

You can use Any to check the existence of an item:
delivery.DeliveryParts.Any(part => part.partnumber.ToString().Contains(kword))
