Blurb: An Enemies to Lovers
Shifter, Vampire True Mates story.

Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice, himself is sometimes able to control.

His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls and the determined pacing inside him was overtaking him.

Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over one-hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

This story DOES NOT contain/mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. It ends with a very HFN.

Review: This is a slightly different type of series by this author but it is no less than her previous series. I love paranormal stories as a whole but was blown away by the story and characters throughout this book. I loved that Justice was a fair yet stern Alpha that pulled no punches when it came to his mate. Chadwick was in his own right fair and stern yet compassionate.

These two took their sweet time coming together but it was oh so worth the wait. Chadwick’s secret was an added element of mystery that I enjoyed. Though things are tense between the two men they come together to defeat the evil that is being forced into their groups as well as the humans and their laws.

I am excited for the coming books in this series. Though there was hardly any action in this story it worked out well. The main focus is on the relationship and the true mates bond. I hope to read more about these two men in future books how they deal with dangerous situations when they come about.

Fantastic beginning to an awesome story.

Highly recommended.

Promises Part 4

(The Bounty Hunters 04)
by

A.E. Via

Men found him attractive, interesting even. He was like a fascinating experiment gone wrong that men liked to investigate. He’d get a date – or two, if he was lucky – but it wasn’t long before Brian’s darkness showed, and the men were running from him.

Brian King was honorably discharged from the United States Navy five years ago. He’d left with the highest honors a man can receive in his country, but he’d paid the ultimate price to earn them. He was considered one of the best; an Intelligence Officer in a Joint Special Operations Delta team that’d been a twelve-man wrecking crew. They’d thought they were invincible… until they weren’t. Brian was the only member that survived the ambush. He survived ten months of pain, of torture, only to emerge on the other side a warrior. A POW survivor. He’d returned home with all his limbs, his right mind, and with his only brother Ford, at his side. But, one thing had been lost, maybe for good… his voice.

Now, being a bounty hunter is Brian’s only means to satisfy his need to calculate, track, and capture. His only outlet to the stress caused by his silence. He was good at what he did. But, all work and no play for a forty-four year old man was taking its toll. Brian wasn’t a faulty experiment. He missed companionship, he missed communicating. So, when he met Sway Hamilton – in the most unconventional means – he’d been surprised at his special way of understanding Brian’s every look… and touch.

Sway grew up in the rough part of ATL, trailing behind his twin brother Stanton and his best friend, Dana. He and his brother had a bond only twins could understand. So when Stanton’s life was taken during their sophomore year in college, Sway didn’t think he’d ever recover. He finally finished school, got his masters in nursing, worked hard, and focused on taking care of his mother. However, Sway knew there was more to life than heartache, and caring for others. There had to be. But he didn’t know what any of those things were until he met a dark hunter that blew his mind… and the intense man had never uttered a single word.

Brian and Sway can feel the powerful connection between them. It was there from the start—but both of them have battled with loss and anguish for so long, neither understand that love can ease all of it. Do they have the courage to battle through it together? Sway has to learn to trust in love, and Brian has to believe that Sway will always understand him even if he never speaks again.

Sway held him tight around his neck, “I don’t need you to talk, Brian. I can hear you just fine,” Sway whispered softly, kissing his throat.

This novel is a part of a series but can be read as a standalone. No cliffhangers.

Trigger Warning: This story contains acts of bond recovery agent violence. Mention of war zones and descriptions of war prisoners. This story DOES NOT contain overly-described acts of torture.

Surprise, surprise! *winking*

Believe me, this was not intentional, but I couldn’t wait any longer either. I’m too excited to have this series back going again. I think I may have missed them just as much as you. And they’re all here. This book isn’t just about God and Day’s wedding, or about the sexy, dangerous, new recruit; instead I catch you up on everyone. Including bringing back a couple of fan favorites. This installment can standalone, but if you have the urge to catch up on the others, they’re on sale right now!

I hope you’ll drop me a couple lines when you finish, and let me know what you think.  ~A.E. Via~

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.

Heat Level: Low

Heart Rating:  ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: Sparks ignite and tempers flare when a sexy, optimistic wedding planner, moves his business in across the hall from a jilted, divorce lawyer’s practice.

“Look smart ass. This is the last time I’m going to remind you about breaking sections of the lease. If there’s a next time, I won’t stop until you and your frilly, white wedding shit is thrown out of here. Do you got it?!”

Wylde looked in Jacob’s pained eyes and answered in his deep voice. “Yeah, counselor. I got it.”

From high school, up until he became a successful attorney Jacob Snowden was convinced that love had it out for him. “Everyone left,” were the words he lived by. His mother, his high school sweetheart, his father, and his fiancé, all left Jacob just when he felt it was safe to let down his guard. Not any longer. Jacob was a determined man, set at keeping people at a distance. If his six foot one, military-made body didn’t scare people off, his permanent scowl surely did. At almost forty, Jacob’s social life was non-existent, but he told himself his work fulfilled him. He helped people get out of their loveless marriages. Jacob Snowden was one of the best divorce lawyers on the east coast and was damn proud of it. So, imagine his disdain when a wedding planner moves into the suite directly adjacent to his… an insanely masculine, male wedding planner.

Wylde Sterling had made quite a name for himself in his hometown of Roanoke, Virginia, working for a wedding planner that catered to the elite. He was known for his charm and impeccable taste. Yep, he was incredible at giving couples the wedding of their dreams. But he wanted nothing more than to plan his own. After striking out in love more times than he cared to admit, Wylde decided to start his own business in a new city, hoping Richmond would give him a fresh start. Things started out wonderfully – until he started to piss off the angry divorce attorney next door. 

Wylde could see past Jacob’s mean scowl, knowing there was a reason for it. It was the man’s defense mechanism, his means of keeping people away. Everything in Wylde told him to stay away, but he believed Jacob just needed to meet a man who had been hurt as badly as he had.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: The very first thing I am going to say about this book is that the cover rocked.  It made the book stand out and grabbed my attention right off the bat.  Then there is the blurb, it made the story more striking then even the cover.  I haven’t read to many stories by this author and can’t figure out why I haven’t.  

Jacob’s mother took off, his father was a drunk and his high school boyfriend did not stand beside him when he found out that he wasn’t going to be able to go to the college they had chosen.  That was the start of what made him the way he was.  Bitter, mean and downright nasty sometimes, but it made him one hell of a good divorce attorney.  That is until Wylde moved in next door.

Wylde looked like a tough, powerful football player, but he was the best wedding planner ever.  He loved to watch love bloom and to go forward.  He loved to give happy couples the best days of their lives. Then he meets a man who thinks he destroys love and sets out to prove him wrong.

Wylde starts off by offering support but you can feel the heat coming from these two men.  I love how Jacob tries his hardest to ignore it, but you know when the bug bites.  This has a serious tone to it, but there is quite a bit of humor lurking in the background.  It also has some very sad moments, but there are also a lot of smiles there.  I wasn’t sure when I started it, because it is a little more drawn out then I usually like, however I have to tell you that this story made me believe in love again.  Well maybe for our sexy characters love happens.  I would definitely recommend this story and I will be checking out the rest of this authors work.

A.E. Via

The Story of  ALPHA, CALL, OMEGA & LION ALONG WITH A COUPLE OTHER FAVORITES

It’s been a couple years since Commander John Marion – the US Navy’s most decorated SEAL – hung up his dog tags, choosing his cherished Alpha over war.

Call and Alpha have settled comfortably into their carefree lives nestled in the mountains of South Carolina. No more combat for the Commander and no more ordered killings for the deadliest assassin in the world.

However, nothing stays peaceful forever.

When Alpha’s brother Omega comes to their secluded home with a distressing message from their Order, Alpha has to answer the call.  But what neither of them expect is for the Order to send them a new assassin, one just as deadly as both of them, to seek their counsel and bring them back Persia.

Lion’s commanding presence was not at all what any of them anticipated. Especially Omega. Lion realizes what Omega is to him right away, but the stubborn man fights his every advance. Lion knows he and Omega have to connect if they’re going to be victorious. He was sent to bring back an army but if he can’t get his cherished to yield to him, they are sure to fail.

Call refuses to let Alpha fight a gang of rebel assassins without him. Omega will fight by his brother’s side, no matter what… and Hawk saw them coming for his help before anyone else. Together they’ll fight the toughest opponents they’ve ever faced. As always… these badass warriors are up for the challenge.  

THIS IS THE THIRD INSTALLMENT IN THIS SERIES and CAN STAND ALONE.

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Length: 290 pages

Publisher: Via Star Wings Books (March 20, 2016)

Heat Level: Explicit

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Blurb: PARTS ONE AND TWO IN THIS SERIES CAN BOTH BE READ AS STANDALONES. THERE ARE NO CLIFFHANGERS IN EITHER BOOK.

Roman “Quick” Webb is one badass bounty hunter on the crime-filled streets of Atlanta. He’s fearless when it comes to carrying out his dangerous job alongside his longtime best friend and business partner, Duke.

However, there is one thing that has begun to cause Quick concern and it’s the dreadful thought of living out the rest of his life alone. Seeing his best friend and his son fall in love and sharing the special connection that only true soulmates can, has made him all the more aware of what’s lacking in his life.

Love.

Dr. Cayson Chauncey has been wildly attracted to the big, tattooed hunter for almost a year, ever since he performed the surgery that saved Quick’s best friend’s life. Cayson must’ve mistaken Quick’s gratitude for something more, because the one time he tried to make his desires known, he was harshly rebuffed and left on the man’s doorstep feeling stupid for hitting on an obviously very straight man.

Cayson never dated a man who was willing to come out of hiding and be with him. Now at almost forty, Cayson is intent on no longer being anyone’s dirty secret. Having experienced countless disappointments, and having taken a stand not to fall for any more tricks, Cayson is more than a little skeptical when Quick comes around asking for a second chance to prove himself. The gorgeous man had already made it clear he was definitely uninterested in Cayson… or so he’d thought.

Dr. Chauncey stirred up Quick’s suppressed, most carnal desires from a place deep down inside of him. He’d reacted so badly the first time that now his sexy surgeon wanted nothing to do with him. It was going to take a fair amount of patience and a whole lot of wooing involved as Quick sets out to convince Cayson that he’s worth another chance and that he is the brave lover who Cayson has been looking for.

With a scorned ex and a very dangerous job thrown into the mix, Cayson’s happiness and all of Quick’s promises may not be as easy to keep as they’d hoped.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: Isn’t the cover fabulous? I want Roman (Quick) for myself!

Darn these books get better and better! Sexy surgeons, hot bounty hunters, action, romance and hot man-sex what more could you ask for? I thought the first one was good but this one was even better.  I loved Quick. He is tough as nails on the outside and at work but this book shows vulnerability and makes him even more relatable.

You could feel his need for something more, the longing in him and in Chauncey as well. I loved how the Dr is not too feminine but a contrast to Quick. A.E really laid these two men out raw for us.

Then we had Dr. Joe.  He really made things scary. Amping up the action in the story.  There is a lot of suspense as well as the romance.  Then there is the sex. All I can say is wow!

If you like bounty hunters, doctors, action/ suspense, drama, romance and hot man-sex this is definitely a book for you.  I do suggest you read book one first but it’s not totally necessary but you will see how Quick and Chauncey met and the circumstance, plus more about his son and Duke that is mentioned a lot.

I, personally, feel you would enjoy this book better if you read the first.

Cayson never dated a man who was willing to come out of hiding and be with him. Now at almost forty, Cayson is intent on no longer being anyone’s dirty secret. Having experienced countless disappointments, and having taken a stand not to fall for any more tricks, Cayson is more than a little skeptical when Quick comes around asking for a second chance to prove himself. The gorgeous man had already made it clear that he was not interested in Cayson… or so he’d thought.

Dr. Chauncey stirred up Quick’s suppressed, most carnal desires from a place deep down inside of him. He’d reacted so badly the first time that now his sexy surgeon wanted nothing to do with him. It was going to take a fair amount of patience and a whole lot of wooing involved as Quick sets out to convince Cayson that he’s worth another chance and that he is the brave lover who Cayson has been looking for.

With a scorned ex and a very dangerous job thrown into the mix, Cayson’s happiness and all of Quick’s promises may not be as easy to keep as they’d hoped.

Review: Roman Quick Webb may be a fearless Bounty Hunter, but watching his son Vaughn and his best friend Duke fall in love has caused one thing Quick fears to rise to the surface. Being alone. Quick has always known he was bi-sexual though he’s never really given himself a chance to explore the guy aspect of that sexuality. The shy, smart, sexy doctor that overseas Duke’s transplant care awakens feelings Quick long since thought went dormant.

Cayson Chauncey is a brilliant physician. He has put every ounce of his being into not only becoming a doctor, but becoming the best. His love life is on life support though. Quick has to eat crow and prove to Cays that he’s not the rude, brash bastard he first met. It is a learning experience for both of them. Through it all, there is a thorn that continues to poke and prod and Cays has to learn the hard way that mixing business and pleasure, probably not a good idea.

AE Via: What did you think of the plot of the story for Promises part 2?

Tams: I loved it actually. It was a different kind of take on the crazy ex mentality, I don’t want you but if I can’t have you, no one else can. The chapter where Duke and Vaughn show up right when Quick is about to show Cayson some self-defense movies was a lot of fun. Watching the three of them (Quick, Duke and Vaughn) and the way they interact was fun.

AE Via: Were there any holes in the story, or a lack of chemistry between the characters?

Tams: Not in my opinion. I think some people may read the book and perceive it as an insta-love story though. But when you factor in that it has actually been a couple of months that these two have been tip toeing around each other… well, Cayson has been tip toeing. Quick’s reaction to Cays dance was more like a bull in a China shop. Then factor in their undeniable chemistry, mutual and intense attraction to one another and the fact that they are both right around forty years old. Taking all that into consideration and I think that falling for each other was the next logical step, who cares how fast it happened?

AE Via: Did the story flow well?

Tams: Absolutely! The pace was steady from start to finish with a few twists and turns along the way.

AE Via: What was your favorite part of the story?

Tams: Watching Quick romancing Cayson. You could tell he was a little bit out of his element, but you could also tell that he wanted to convey the depth of his feelings for Cayson. There were a few awkward, uncomfortable moments, but the way they were written and resolved worked out perfectly for me. Also, there was an internal dialogue going throughout the story, from both men’s mindset, and I felt like it made the story more dramatic, gave it added depth, to listen to what Quick and Cays were thinking and feeling at any given moment.

AE Via: So, you’ve said the chemistry, connection and romance was there. What about passion?

Tams: Quick was slightly shockingly a very passionate lover. But then I am sitting here now thinking, he has always been passionate about his job, his relationship with his son, his friendship with Duke. Why wouldn’t that passion bleed over into his relationship with Cayson.

Overall I thought this book was even better than the first. In fact, I liked it so much; I want to read it again already. I enjoy the way Via can describe and relay human emotion in her characters and make the reader feel their pain and root for them to get their happy ever after. I highly recommend this read. While you could start with Promises book 1 and not be lost, if you haven’t read the Nothing Special series my suggestion would be to start there. The characters overlap and I think knowing who, what, where and when would make this series just that much more enjoyable if you start at the beginning.

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.

The Story of:  HAWK, PIERCE, SHOT & FOX ALONG WITH THE OTHER BEASTMASTERS

Pierce aka Strategic Intelligence Specialist, Backhander is back to flush out some of the DEA’s most notorious criminals, and he has one helluva’ team backing him up. The country’s most decorated Navy Seals…the Beastmasters. 

Pierce is more than capable of doing his job, but he has one insanely hot distraction that continuously causes him to second guess his hidden orientation– 

Dane Aramis, call-sign, Hawk. Hawk can see what most people can’t, and whether his sexy Pierce wants to admit it or not, he can see the brilliant man’s desire runs deep for him.

However, when Pierce and the Beastmasters are on their final assignment, the last person they expect to encounter with the opposition is rogue assassin…Omega. The man is unstoppable, and when he comes too close to what Hawk holds dear, the Beastmasters call on the only man that can control the lethal assassin. Omega’s faster, deadlier brother, Alpha.

Bringing Alpha back into society may be disastrous for everyone involved. But, Hawk is willing to take that risk to keep Pierce safe.

Embracing His Syn

(Sequel to Nothing Special)

by

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.

God, Day, Ronowski, and Johnson are still as entertaining as ever…

You’ll swoon over God’s massive take-charge attitude…

You’ll laugh hysterically at Day’s never-ending wit…

You’ll fall in love with Furious’ mysterious, sexy demeanor…

and…

You’ll embrace Syn…
