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.


5 out of 5 stars

Embracing His Syn is the second book in the Nothing Special series by the talented A.E. Via. I’m a huge fan of A.E.’s and I love this series so much. I had the pleasure of listening to it in audio and it totally amps up the sexiness and suspense! Aiden Snow’s voice is so deep and growly and I just love it. Corbin Sydney, or Syn. He moved to Atlanta to join God and Day’s task force. He’s a good cop. Dedicated, fair, by the book and straight. Until he meets Furious. Furi is a tall, sexy, tatted bartender and Syn can’t look away. He doesn’t care that he’s a man, he wants him. But he’s not used to the feeling. He isn’t ready to run out into the street and declare his intentions, but there’s just something about Furi. Furi is running from his past. He just wants a fresh start and Syn is not the place to start. He’s a cop. Not a good idea. But the more he sees him and talks to him, the more he wants him. This is all new to Syn and Furi’s past comes back to get him. Can these two make it work amongst all the drama? I loved this story! My Lord, listening to Aiden is a fantastic experience. And hearing God and Day, Ronowski and Johnson is always a treat. I’m still fanning myself from Nothing Special! Overall, I loved the story, and the narration. I can’t wait to get my hands and ears on Here Comes Trouble!

A.E. Via has been a best-selling author in the beautiful gay romance genre for five years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of gay lit for over fifteen years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple great new up and coming MM authors.

A.E. has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Virginia Wesleyan College that she used to start her own paralegal firm after she graduated in 2008. She spent five years preparing and filing bankruptcy petitions for struggling blue collar workers who couldn’t afford to file with a lawyer. It was a rewarding and satisfying career… but another path called to her. Writing.

A.E.’s writing embodies everything from hopelessly romantic to adventure, to scandalous. Her stories often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.

Now that she’s gotten over her 10 books published hump, she’s kind of known now for her hardcore, play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, she does like to push herself to step out of her comfort zone, exploring different tropes, but she won’t push herself into a whole other genre. She’s head over heels for gay romance and she has tons of more hot stories to tell.

Via’s official website http://authoraevia.com for more detailed information on how to contact her, follow her, or a sneak peak at upcoming work, free reads, VSWB submissions, and where she’ll appear next.
