Embracing His Syn

(Nothing Special 02)

Narrator: Aiden Snow

A.E. Via

Sergeant Corbin “Syn” Sydney had dedicated his life to becoming the best detective. So when he heard there was an opening on the notorious Atlanta Narcotics Task Force, he jumped at the chance. But, what he wasn’t ready for was realizing just how lonely he’d made himself, when he observed the loving and dedicated relationship between the two men he served under: Lieutenant Cashel “God” Godfrey and Lieutenant Leonidis Day.

Syn prepared himself to accept his lonely fate until he walked into a small pub and met the long-haired, tattooed bartender, Furious Barkley. Before Syn can even understand why, he’s overcome with feelings he barely recognizes: passion, yearning, craving. And if the dark, lustful gazes are anything to go by, Furious might be feeling the same things for him.

Just two thing needs to happen before Syn and Furi can give each other what’s been missing from their lives for so long…Syn needs to find the evidence that proves Furi’s innocence of murder, as well as protect him from a past that refuses to let go.

Blurb: Lennox Freeman (Free) is one of the best hackers in the world which has caused him to spend most of his life on the run. Never able to put down roots, he couldn’t trust anyone not to take advantage of him, even his own family. If it wasn’t for his best friend, Tech, shielding him, Free’s father would’ve sold him and his skills to the highest bidding crime family when he was still a student at MIT. Free owed Tech his life; so when his friend called for him to come to Atlanta to work with him, he couldn’t say no. However, he wasn’t expecting the overprotective group of detectives that made up Atlanta PD’s most notorious task force. And he certainly wasn’t prepared for the large-and-in-charge SWAT Captain that was responsible for their safety.

Ivan Hart has lived and bled one creed all of his life: To Serve and Protect. His intense focus and determination in law enforcement has led him to finally commanding his own team. He’d worked hard to put together a squad of badasses capable of backing up a very dangerous team of detectives. Being God and Day’s last line of defense came with a lot of responsibility that he took very seriously.

After his divorce was final Hart turned right around and remarried his job. He had his good friends there in the office with him every day, so it was easier to ignore the few quiet hours he spent at home alone each night. He’d settled well into his new routine and was comfortable with it. Then God decided to disrupt everything by hiring another tech specialist for his department. A man whose brains, trendy looks, and voice would leave Hart tongue-tied and captivated at their first introduction.

Free quickly awakens a passion in Hart that he long thought was dead. An attraction he didn’t know existed. He couldn’t fathom that the sexy cyber genius could be interested in an over-sized, big-bearded brute that served criminals the bottom line for a living. No matter what his best friend, God said.

A future with Hart could be potentially dangerous and often times full of terrifyingly close calls; but little did he know that so could falling for the most hunted hacker in the world. All Lennox Freeman wants in life is security, love and protection… Hart had all that to give and more.

Review: Len has spent most of his time on the run. His best friend Tech had saved his butt on many occasions and helped him rescue his mom. Tech had even gotten in trouble with the FBI for some of it. Now here they were working for SWAT. With Len being one of the top hackers in the world, he usually got the job done. The only thing he truly wanted was the Captain, Ivan.

Ivan had gotten out of a nasty marriage with barely the tip of his fingers, and let me say she was a piece of work. He didn’t have much of a self esteem but he was working on it. However his eyes were on a sexy young man that was their tech expert. Now he just had to get the guts to tell him, or at least make a move.

First off a guy as big as Ivan who is also a swat leader should have the balls to tell his ex off. The way this was told the man came off as a pushover. Also it just wasn’t believable with Len and his past, being even close to SWAT. The story plot was amazing, but the story itself was drawn out and dull in parts. It had more descriptive junk added in that was not needed. At first I put it down to them getting to know each other and getting the nerve to even hit on each other. But the way it was told was putting me to sleep in parts. Now that is just me.

On the good side, you get action and lots of it. Car chases, shoot outs, and so much more in this book. The guys were great together and complimented each other. I will admit that I liked Len more, because Ivan just didn’t have the strength he should have had. He showed the strength when it come to backing his men, saving people and even when Len had been in trouble. However he was a pushover with the other females and his ex. Not a good sign for me. I liked the secondary characters quite a bit and enjoyed their banter.

Overall I enjoyed the story and the action. It was not one of my favorites but it was pretty good. I can’t say that it will be read more than once but it will be one that will be staying in my library. I did have fun reading it and look forward to seeing what this author has coming next.

The boys are back and fiercer than ever!

“We were a unit tonight, moving as one. Even apart, we are deadly, but when combined – we are f**kin’ unstoppable.” ~~ God ~~

Atlanta’s notorious narcotics task force is at it again. They are stronger, bigger, and better than ever. Especially when a city councilman sends RECON Marine, Edwin Steele – who’s been blacklisted from his Oakland department – to join the team. God and Day weren’t recruiting. They have a lot on their plates, like the fact they’re supposed to be getting married soon. They don’t have the time or the patience to integrate a decorated war hero with a slight chip on his shoulder into their well-oiled machine. 

A hothead that’s uncontrollable and terrible with authority… but wasn’t that their team motto?

Steele was ready to hang up his shield. He was done fighting with bigoted bastards that couldn’t respect the job. He was good at fighting; he just needed the right team to fight with. When his uncle – City Councilman, Rasmus Steele – shows him a video of God’s team in action, he knows right away, it’s where his nephew belongs in order to restore his faith. 

Steele pointed to the driver, a behemoth of a man wielding those massive firearms like a true beast… like a soldier. “And him. Who the hell is he?”

“That’s your new boss. Lieutenant Cashel Godfrey… they call him… God.”

Steele was skeptical about his new placement, but when he meets God’s technology specialist/computer genius, “Tech,” he’s willing to give it his all, and he definitely shows and proves.

Tech is stunning. His sweater vest and khakis, a stark contrast to the blue-jeaned roughnecks he works with. A beautiful sheep amongst the wolves. Steel thinks there’s no way the brilliant man would be interested in a hardhead like him, but Tech has a few badass hidden talents of his own and manages to surprise him… surprise all of them. 

This story is a part of a series but can stand alone. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has a HEA. There are no multiple pairings in this novel.

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Length: Novel (298 pages)
Publisher: Via Star Wings Publishing (November 28th 2014)
Heat Level: Explicit
Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts
Blurb: Detectives Mark Ruxsberg and Chris Green are very good at their jobs. Being the enforcers for God and Day’s notorious Atlanta PD Narcotics Task Force causes the crazy duo to get into more trouble than they can often get out of. The pair never misses out on an opportunity to drive their Lieutenants crazy with their dangerous, reckless, and costly stunts, landing them in the hot seat in front God… often.
Ruxs and Green love their jobs and they don’t mind the very demanding schedule that leaves them little time for socializing or dating. It was fine with them. They enjoyed hanging out with each other anyway.
However, most of the men in their close circle of friends and colleagues are pairing off and settling down. God has Day, Ro has Johnson, and their Sergeant Syn has Furious.

For the past several years, Ruxs has only sought out the advice and company of one person, his partner and best friend Green, and vice versa. Both of these alpha males are presumed straight, but neither can deny the heat that’s building in their once ‘just friends’ relationship.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Detectives Ruxsberg and Green are a force of nature. As the enforcers for God’s elite Atlanta PD task force, they usually wreak havoc at a crime scene leaving a wake of damages, much to God’s dismay. The most difficult tasks they take on are not in the line of duty though.

After years of working together, they’ve become a well-oiled machine, anticipating each other’s moves. But somewhere along the way, Ruxs started to feel a different kind of love for his best friend and partner, and it’s tearing him up inside. He is afraid to admit his feelings to Green for fear of losing his friend when he rejects him. When Ruxs shows up on Green’s doorstep bloody and broken after a confrontation with his addict mother and her much younger dealer boyfriend, those feelings he has been trying to hide come spilling out and he learns his best friend has a few secrets of his own.

The transition from best friends to boyfriends is almost flawless. The trouble comes when a young man Green takes care of like a son loses his mother and Green has to decide whether or not taking on the actual duties of being a father is something he and Ruxs are ready for.

What a wild ride this book was. What I love most about Ruxs and Green is how they are the same people in every aspect of their lives. The havoc that they wreak on the job doesn’t stop at the bedroom door. They are just as insane and wild in the sheets as they are in the streets. They transitioned well from partners to best friends to lovers seemingly overnight, which might seem unrealistic to some readers, but they have been together for so long that it’s completely believable when they decide to take things to the next level. In fact, the little bit of drama leading up to their maiden voyage kind of drove me a little crazy. I was like, would you two just get it on and get it over with already!

My favorite part of this particular story was not the danger, suspense, and smexy time when Ruxs and Green decided to play tag team in the bedroom. I thoroughly enjoyed the dynamics of the fathers and son relationship that developed between Green, Ruxs, and Curtis. Both men, hell the entire team, is fiercely protective of young Curtis and I loved how the wide array of emotions between them played out on paper. And am I the only one who is anxiously anticipating Curtis and Gen’s story?????

Via has created a wildly visual motley crew of Alpha male arch types that have found a way to coexist and not only love, but also support each other with her Nothing Special series. If you follow my reviews you know I’m a hopeless romantic, I love ‘Gay for You’ stories and I am exceptionally partial to hot alpha males that have a habit of tripping over each other as they vie for dominance in the bedroom. This book delivers all that and so much more. Definitely a must read. But start at the beginning so you are familiar with this world and these characters.
