A chat on the patio ~ A.E. Via Promises 3~ Bounty Hunters #LGBT

Hi ya’ll! today I would like to welcome one of my favorite authors A.E. Via and her newest release Promises Part  three Part of the Bounty Hunter series. I have been waiting it seems forever for this story.  But before we talk about the book, In honor of Independence day I have a few questions for A.E.
Cat-Hi A.E! *pulls out chair on the patio and offers a refreshing drink* Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit. would you like a glass of tea, lemonade or something stronger?
A.E. *already feeling welcome and comfortable, smiles* “I’m going to behave for now and go for the iced tea instead of asking if you have chilled Moscato.”
Cat-I took the liberty to grill us some lunch. I have burgers, hot dogs or Barbecue chicken kabobs.
A.E *such a gracious host* “I’ve had more burgers and hot dogs this weekend than I want to admit to, so Kabobs sound great. Haven’t had’em in while.”
Cat-I hope you didn’t mind doing this on the patio, though it’s pretty hot out.  Do you always write in an office or have other places you like to write?
A .E.*squints up at the bright sun, but smiles politely* “I’m not a fan of the sun. I have very sensitive skin. I burn in an instant, so it’s rare anyone will see me in the daytime. If I go out, it’s after five in the evening. I prefer to write inside, in my office. It’s sweltering in Virginia Beach in the summer – even trying to write under a shaded tree – the heat would be too distracting to me.”
Cat: I love your Bounty Hunters and I especially liked Ford, Brian being ex-military. what was your inspiration for these characters?
A.E. “Most know that I love alpha males. It doesn’t get more badass – in my opinion – than military men, first-responders, law enforcement, etc. In Promises 3 I wanted the men to truly value brotherhood, honor, loyalty and have a desire to protect. I usually choose a profession that would ingrain these qualities into my MC. Making Ford, and Brian military fit well for them. It drives me crazy to read a book where the character hates people, or doesn’t communicate well, or is an extreme introvert; but the author makes them a teacher or a nurse. It makes no sense.”
Cat: How did you come up with the  title of Promises for these books?
A.E. *shakes head and shrugs a bit* “There’s not much  rhyme or reason to my titles, honestly. I figured the troubled men in this series would be making tons of Promises in hopes to reach their HEA.”
Cat Do you have  plans for more books in this series?
A.E. “I’m so excited! Yes! Brian and Sway’s book will be book 4. And that will conclude the series.”
Cat: Now for something a little more personal. How did you spend your Independence Day?
A.E. *laughs loudly* “I’m not very traditional. First thing I did was turn my phone off and slept in. I debated on getting dolled up and going to a barbecue, but I really had no desire to do that. So, my husband and I took our kids to see Transformers at the Cinema Cafe. Dinner and a movie for the fourth.”
Cat: Do you like cooking out in the summer? What is one of your favorite recipes?
A E. “I’m just a little embarrassed to admit this, but I’m not the cook, my husband is. Inside or outside. I don’t even know how to turn on the grill. He’s great at it! I really like grilled food, since it’s so much healthier. When my husband makes Salmon and grilled veggies, it’s my absolute favorite.”
I will let you get back to work. Thanks for stopping by!

“Cathy, it’s always great hanging out and talking with you. Thank you so much for the lunch and tea, sweetheart. Can’t wait to come back and chat some more! I’m working on my first paranormal book that should release next month. A shifter and vampire true mates novel. I would love to hear what you think of this one, Cathy.” 😉

OOH I have been looking for a good Vampire story so I am looking forward to it.

About the Book

A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story.

The hunt is on… and he’s the prey. 

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What he didn’t want was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.

Dana Cadby had grown up labeled a roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks. He’d fought, scrounged, and survived despite a father that constantly told him he couldn’t. Dana pulled himself up by his own boot straps and made a name for himself in the marksman community. He’d been Duke’s bounty watchman for five years. It was his job to ensure their safety, watch their backs. At thirty-three, he was trusted, well respected by his peers, his bosses, his friends… so why couldn’t he earn the same respect from his partner?

Dana knew he was bisexual before he graduated high school. He also knew he was attracted to the huge, 6’3”, SEAL from the moment he and his brother came to join their team. It wasn’t easy for him to tamp down his immediate reaction to Ford’s thick muscles, full beard, and dark eyes. Still, Dana exhibited nothing but professionalism towards him, not wanting to make his ‘straight’ partner uncomfortable. So why did Ford constantly give him hell?

After Dana took back his ex-girlfriend, he’d noticed an intensification in Ford’s bad attitude. One that turned aggressive and downright antagonistic, and Dana was damned if he’d just lay down and take it. He was gonna make that man respect him if it was the last thing he did.

When Duke sends Dana and Ford out to track down their most dangerous bounty yet, they both embrace the fact that they make one hell of a team… but they fight tooth and nail against the powerful intimacy brewing between them.

Beware: If Ford and Dana connect completely, god help the fugitive who’s in the sights of the hunter and his watchman.

 

This story is a part of a series but can stand alone. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has a HEA. 

Disclaimer: This book is about MM romance, albeit there is a very brief MF scene.

How about a little sneak peek?

Ford

Ford finished showering and grooming his beard that Dana seemed to like so much. Who knew the man was so into hair? He’d dated women so much, Ford thought his rough features and hairy body would’ve been a turnoff to him. Ford couldn’t’ve been more wrong. He’d just finished throwing on a pair of blue US NAVY sweats and a white tank top when his doorbell rang. He may not look as gorgeous as Dana, but he was smelling clean and had even dabbed on a little aftershave. It was as much primping as he could manage.

Ford opened the door, and sure enough, there he was, smelling and looking just as fine as always. Dana had obviously showered too, because his hair was still wet and combed back, making it look jet-black. He had on loose jeans with a simple black and gray retro Jimi Hendrix t-shirt with dark leather boots. His body filled out everything beautifully. While Dana wasn’t as big as Ford, he wasn’t small. He had strong arms and legs, which he used to his advantage on the streets. But Ford’s eyes were glued to Dana’s hard abs and solid chest under the snug shirt.

“You can keep staring, but can you do it with me inside? These bags are heavy, babe.” Dana’s voice, even his eyes, were full of edge and amusement.

Fuck. Ford closed his mouth, not sure if he’d drooled on his shirt or not, and stepped aside to let a still-smiling Dana into his home.

“Well, thank you.” Dana kissed him quickly on the mouth on his way past. Not enough. He went into Ford’s kitchen, dropping the three full grocery bags on the counter. Ford looked bewildered. What was his brat up to now? He never told Dana he had to bring his own food.

“What are you doing?” Ford asked, leaning against the counter while he watched Dana maneuver around his kitchen, washing his hands before he began to unload the bags.

“I’m going to make us dinner.” Dana winked. “I’m starving. Did you eat already?”

“No.” Ford pulled out two beers and popped the tops on them. “I was gonna order Chinese or something.”

“Well, no need.”

“You’re going to cook?” Ford said skeptically, still looking oddly around at the scattered ingredients.

“Yes, Ford. I’m going to cook. It’s not that complicated.”

“You’re cooking nachos?”

Dana looked in his cabinets until he found a small pan and put it on the range, dropping a small hunk of ground chuck in before turning back to Ford. “Good grief. I didn’t say I was attempting a leg of lamb with mint jelly. It’s only cheap ground beef with a bunch of crap on top. I’m not making a five-course meal, man.”

Ford shrugged. “I’m a little surprised but, by all means. Go right ahead. I’ll be in here watching TV.”

Dana grabbed Ford’s arm. “Um. What the hell you think this is? All In the Family? You’re not gonna sit on your ass while I cook and call you when dinner’s ready. Get your fine ass in here and help.”

“I don’t cook.” Ford smirked.

“I don’t need you to.” Dana picked up the tomatoes and tossed one at Ford. “Start cutting. You can’t fuck up a tomato. Any way you cut it, we’ll put it on the pile. Same for the lettuce and avocado.”

Ford was still looking baffled when Dana rolled his eyes and moved him to the edge of the counter, put the knife in his hand and started to show him how to dice. It was cute and silly at the same time. Ford knew he could cut up a tomato and shred some lettuce, but Dana’s arms around him while he manipulated Ford’s big hand around the knife were too endearing to put a stop to.

“See. Easy. Just keep cutting like that,” Dana said softly, leaving his arms around Ford’s waist while he did his menial job. Next thing he knew, he felt soft lips against the back of his neck, moving gently across his heated skin. Then Dana’s hands were massaging his chest and abs as they moved lower and lower.

“You’re gonna make me cut my thumb off.” Ford put the knife down and turned in Dana’s arms.

“Sorry. Got distracted,” Dana whispered.

MY REVIEW

This series just gets better and better. I Love how A.E. takes two Alpha men and puts them together and makes it work. I love both Ford and Dana and was glad to see their story. Ford is quiet and strong and big. with A.E.’s descriptions and how she works that into the story I could visualize this big hunk of a man.Dan being six foot isn’t tiny and Ford makes him look small so that really shows me his size. I love a big bear of a man and Ford just did it for me. I loved how they didn’t just fall into bed in the beginning.The fight for their love was as good as the subplots and action.
This is a book three but i think you could read it as a stand alone. There is recurring characters from the other books but all in all I think you can enjoy it on its own.
I cannot wait to see Brian’s story!
If you like Alpha men, Bounty Hunters,ex-military men, action, romance and some hot man-sex you will love this.

A Little Message from A.E. Via.

I’m back with a new release from my best-selling MM series, Nothing Special. I must say it was a blast writing these guys after so long. People have asked why it took a while to get this next installment out and I can only say because I wasn’t sure I wanted to continue with the series. It took a lot of thought – but to my God and Day lovers – I’ve decided to commit to at least two more books in this series. I hope you like this one. Some have classified Nothing Special V as my love letter to my fans – I adored that compliment because it’s accurate. I wanted to give you all a little of everything and every character from the previous books. A glimpse of everyone’s life and what’s been going on with them. I have several POVs in this installment, but not in a confusing way. I love to give the reader a full connection, a peek into other character’s head, and I believe the fans of this series appreciate that. As an avid romance reader myself, it’s one of my pet peeves to only get one point of view in a romance novel. I feel like there’s so much missing when I can’t connect with the other MC. Anyhoo… this isn’t about my likes. It’s about you. So I’ll shut up and let you read the blurb. If you like what you see, pick this one up. Don’t forget to let me know what you think.

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.

Here  is a little more of Nothing Special V

“Finish,” Steele whispered gravely. “What’s not all?”

“It’s not important.” Both their voices were low as if there were someone else around to hear.

“I didn’t ask if it was important.”

“This is my job and I do what I’m required.”

“But….”

“There’s no but. It’s nothing. I’m happy where I am.” Tech looked down at his wrist, which was still in Steele’s grasp, but instead of just holding it, Steele was rubbing his thumb across his pulse, carefully watching him. Tech exhaled slowly. He could feel himself vibrating with hunger for this man. He wished he could stop it. All he could do was pretend he wasn’t fazed by it all. By Steele’s magnificence. Yes, he was just a man. An amazing man who wasn’t afraid to risk his life for a stranger. Who fought for something bigger than himself. That meant something to Tech… it meant a lot. Steele was the exact type of man, soldier, like the ones that’d tried to save his brother in a war he should’ve never been in. Even though that black ops team wasn’t able to save his brother’s whole squadron, they’d saved a lot of them. Steele was that type of man, and it made Tech feel empowered just being near him. Not wanting Steele to see his infatuation, he tried to appear casual.

“You are lying to me.” Steele stood up and crowded into Tech’s smaller frame, moving him back against the cool brick wall. Trapping him there, Steele’s chest persistent against his own. So close together, Tech could feel the solid planes there. Could smell the scent of the masculine soap Steele washed with this morning. He held the back of Tech’s neck in one hand and pressed the back of his other hand up under his chin, just to the left of his Adam’s apple. Two fingers pushed against the pulse now throbbing just beneath the tender skin. Steele’s touch burned in a delicious way. His head was lowered, that raspy stubble scraping against Tech’s smooth temple, his intense eyes closed in deep concentration while Steele broke apart the lie Tech was trying so desperately to construct.

“What’s not all, Tech?” Steele spoke. His mouth moving against his temple, his voice coarse and smooth at the same time.

“I told you. Nothing. I misspoke.” Tech shook against Steele’s proximity, begging his lower body not to react. He felt the back of the two fingers push in deeper, forcing him to lift his head.

“You’re lying,” Steele hissed. He flipped his hand over and spread it out over Tech’s throat, those two fingers still pressed over his pulse while the others rested over his Adam’s apple. “The way I’m touching you right now. Is it turning you on?”

“What? No.” Tech laughed nervously, his hands lying limp by his side, unsure what to do with them.

He felt Steele’s lips curve up. Did he know Tech lied about that too?

 

MY REVIEW

5 Meows 5 purrs

As A.E. Stated in her opening in the post, this is written in multiple views and it is easy to follow. Each chapter or viewpoint is marked with the name of whose view it is in. We get more of God and Day and  Rux and Greene. We get lots of insight into their home life and a happy surprise with God and Day.  I think getting to see these sides of these four men it makes them more human and realistic, not just the bad boy cops they are. An added surprise was getting to see a little more Preston and his two men. I have to say I was extremely happy as I adored Preston. In case you don’t know who Preston is he started off the series in a Standalone book You Can See Me. This is where we meet day for the first time.

Tech (Shawn) was introduced a book or two ago and is techy behind the scenes man. In this book, Tech wants to be more and has been taking classes on his own to try to get in the field. We also get a new agent, Steele who fits in perfectly with Rux and Greene.  Though this book is a lot of romance and inside their home lives, there is some suspense and action as well. I will say I would have loved to have seen more of Shawn in the field and a bit more action.

I am super excited that there is another book on its way!

If you like police, special forces, Alpha male detectives, action, romance and some good old hot man-sex, you will like this.

I highly recommend this series. In case you haven’t read any of these books and are looking for a good series. You can find them on good reads here.

You can find the first four books here separately or in a set.

Here is the link to  You Can See Me with Prescott and his men and where we first meet Day.  This was the first AE Via book I ever read and one of my favorites.

“We were a unit

Excerpt…
Chapter Twelve
Steele
 
Steele
looked at Tech’s profile while he set out all the tiny pieces to make him an
earpiece. His hands moved methodically over the delicate pieces, putting each
item in its place. It was way outside of Steele’s scope of knowledge. The young
man was a genius. As he looked around at all the sophisticated technology, he
couldn’t help but marvel at the detective. This was something you’d see built
by an engineer that worked for Bill Gates or something, making a six-figure
salary, not in an Atlanta precinct, and he found himself wanting to know Tech’s
story.
He
looked sexy today in his fitted jeans and black, slim-fitted, ribbed
turtleneck. The black, plastic framed glasses set off his entire “I’m a hot
nerd” look, but the body didn’t quite match. He was fit and toned in a Peter
Parker kind of way. Tech probably couldn’t get overly muscular, but it was
clear he worked out. His biceps were probably the size of small apples when he
flexed, and Steele hoped he’d get an opportunity to see them.
Tech
finally moved to get to work, putting a piece of the gray putty on the end of
the five-inch forceps. But as Tech’s hand got closer to the side of his face,
Steele could see the slight tremor. Fuck.
Steele slowly reached up and got a gentle grip of Tech’s narrow wrist, bringing
his hand back down. He took his other hand and pushed back the long sleeve of
Tech’s shirt, locating the spot on his wrist he could manipulate with a little
pressure to help calm some of Tech’s anxiety over having to touch him –
especially when they hadn’t approached the elephant in the room. He looked into
Tech’s brown eyes behind those clear lenses while he rubbed his thumb in a
small circle over the smooth skin. He lost himself in the movement; Tech’s skin
was so pale and soft as he caressed him that he almost forgot why he was even
touching him in the first place. Maybe because of their first interaction
Steele felt an extremely strong pull towards Tech.
“Don’t
be afraid of me, detective,” Steele whispered, watching closely as Tech’s long
lashes fluttered over his intelligent eyes. “I’m sorry I hurt you. I truly am.
I promise… I swear on my fallen brothers that I’ll never ever hurt you like
that again. I wouldn’t’ve come back if I didn’t think I could control myself…
especially around you. I’m ashamed of what I did.”
Tech’s
breath came out in shallow gusts while he let Steele continue to touch him.
“I’m sorry, too. I didn’t mean to offend you, either… or hurt you.” 
“I
know you didn’t.” Steele wanted to lean in closer, somehow get better
acquainted in a different way, but he’d try to establish some trust between
them first. He slid Tech’s sleeve up until it was bunched around his tight
bicep. He stopped caressing the pressure point when he saw the dark purple
bruise above Tech’s elbow. Oh no. He felt even shitter than last night. No
words he’d thought of seemed good enough to speak, right now.
“I’m
okay. Really. I’m stronger than you may think,” Tech said hoarsely, his eyes
darting away. He looked upset, but for a different reason.
“I
know you’re strong. I felt it. But I know the joint is swollen and aching in
there.” Steele let Tech’s wrist go and reached for his backpack. “I brought
something to help.”
Tech
inched in a little closer and Steele took that as a good sign. Ignoring the
delicious coolness of Tech’s cologne, he reached inside and took out the
circular metal container. He didn’t take much with him as he moved from place
to place but he did keep his array of natural remedies he’d acquired from
doctors all over the world, from hypnotherapist to Ayurvedic physicians.
The
can of presoaked bandages was the best he’d ever encountered for aching muscles
and joints. It was made of so many herbs and oils; he’d never be able to recite
them all, but he knew of the primary ones. He took off the tin lid and Tech’s
neck jerked back at the potent smell that blasted their senses, even their eyes
began to water. Tech put his hand up to his nose. “What the hell? Oh my god.”
Steele
chuckled deeply, reaching out to cup Tech’s hand, pulling him back towards him
until was standing between his legs. “I know. I know. It’s the Capsaicin. It’s
an oil extracted from hot chile peppers. I think, mixed with the peppermint,
it’s a bit overpowering, but all the properties together do wonders in reducing
inflammation.”
“There’s
no way I can walk around the office with these on. God’ll kick my ass out of
here so fast.”
“No
he won’t. Because after the bandages are on, I’m going to wrap it in plastic.
It’ll contain the smell. Trust me.” He looked up at Tech’s eyes, realizing
their close proximity. He’d done it on purpose, opening his legs a little
wider. He wanted to show Tech he had a measure of gentility under all his
strength.
Tech
was quiet while Steele carefully wrapped both elbows. “It’s cold. Feels kind of
good, despite the smell.” Tech’s smile was gorgeous and warm.
“It’s
the Camphor cream. A lot of physicians say use hot temperatures for aches, some
say cold. I’ve found cool works best, especially for acute pain.” Steele began
wrapping the Saran wrap. “Out in the field, we’ll try just about anything to
eliminate pain. Of course, we had our corpsmen; but taking narcotics was a last
resort, we needed to stay sharp.”
Steele
pulled down one sleeve and then the other. He closed up his canister and tucked
it back inside his bag. He wiped his hand on a hand towel in his backpack and
zipped it up. “So, what do you think?” Steele knew the medicine well. Already
knew it was working its way into the layers of Tech’s skin, giving him some
much-needed relief. At least Steele was able to fix a little of the damage he’d
done.
“Much
better, actually. Wow, it’s like a miracle serum,” Tech said, bending his arm,
testing the mobility.
“Keep
them on overnight, if you can. It’ll really feel a lot better by tomorrow.”
“Okay,”
Tech agreed, almost wistfully. He stood there rooted in place, just watching
him for a moment and Steele saw his eyes drop to his mouth. Steele licked his
lips.
Tech
blinked, dropping his eyes down, moving back to the side, in front of his kit.
“I better get this going. I’m sure your new partners will be ready for you
soon.”
Steele
tilted his head to the side when Tech reached for his earlobe again. He didn’t
make a sound and he fought not to react, but the hot detective touching him on
his spot was making it difficult. No words were spoken now, only silence and
Steel’s shameless thoughts. He wanted to moan so badly when those agile fingers
moved across the fleshly part of his ear, manipulating the soft substance to
mold to his canal. Tech’s face was so close to his he could feel his exhale
while he peered into the tunnel of his ear. His breath was a mix of coffee and
something else sugary… like he’d had pancakes for breakfast. Steele turned
inward, wanting to smell, wanting to taste.
“Hold
still,” Tech whispered, close to him. “Won’t be long.”
Oh, damn.
That erotic voice. A mild tenor, lighter than bass but far from feminine.
Absolutely perfect. Steele would love to hear it right here in Tech’s
sanctuary. Standing in the midst of all he’d engineered with his brilliant
mind. In the darkness, illuminated with only the flashing red and green signal
indicators on Tech’s monitors, not the harsh florescent lighting over his head
right now. Ahh. He’d hold that taut
body close to him while he caressed the petite round globes of his ass. Would
Tech fit to his body the same way he was curving that malleable paste to fit
his ear? Steele could feel his heart beating faster the more his fantasy played
out in his mind. He closed his eyes and pictured himself coming back from a
dangerous bust and Tech taking him into this room, keeping the lights off and
bringing his adrenaline down with his lustful voice and feather light touches.
“Doing
real good,” Tech breathed quietly, still so damn close. “This is going to be a
little warm now, so I can fold it easier.”
“‘K,”
Steele responded throatily, without knowing what he’d just consented to. He
felt the slick piece of putty slide back into his ear; it was nice and toasty,
like it’d been dipped in warm honey. Still, Tech blew on his ear like it was
too hot for him to take. Oh, he could take the heat. “Mmm.”
“You
okay?” Tech paused.
Steele’s
eyes popped open, the bright lighting jerking him to reality. Fuck, did I just moan? “Oh, yeah. I’m
good. Fine.”
“Alright.
We’re all done,” Tech said, putting the intricately curved piece of goo in a
plastic dish and closing it. “This’ll harden, then I’ll put the casing with the
mechanism over it and you’re good to go.” Tech looked back and forth before his
eyes landed back on him. “I’m real glad we’re square. This team… we’re a family
ya’know, a unit. Everyone is partnered up… in love. We don’t take risks with
anyone’s lives. It’d be devastating.”
Tech
was preparing to walk away and Steele wasn’t ready for him to. He stood and
walked up behind the smaller man while he stood in front of a row of shelves
and put his kit away. When Steele spoke, Tech jumped slightly but settled right
back down. “And who are you in love with?”
“My
job. I don’t have time for all that,” Tech answered. Steele had a feeling that
even Tech didn’t believe that answer.
Steele’s
chin was over Tech’s shoulder. He didn’t grab his narrow waist but he wanted
to. “How warm does this job keep you at night, detective?” Steele didn’t wait
for an answer; instead, he turned and took the weapons Tech had placed out for
him and left his space. But he made a mental note to revisit that topic real soon.
As he made his way back across the office, he hoped that Ack would approve.
It’d been a long time since any other man gave Steele’s body this kind of
reaction.

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.

MY REVIEW

5 meows 5 purrs(hot hot)

Authors Note: THIS IS THE THIRD INSTALLMENT IN THIS SERIES and CAN STAND ALONE.
Book 2 is recommended to read first.
The Story of ALPHA, CALL, OMEGA & LION ALONG WITH A COUPLE OTHER FAVORITES

I was thrilled to get more of my favorites though I am sorry t see this series end.
Call and Alpha receive a surprise visit from Omega, Alpha’s brother. Omega isn’t enjoying retirement or being I America as much as Alpha. He brings word that there is an uprising in their Order and another Assassin needs their help to take down the rebels.
Lion is the Assassin come to ask for help. He has taken Alpha’s place in the order and finds more than assistance when he meets Alpha and Omega.

they enlist the help of Hawk (the seer) and set up a team to take out the rebels. it should be a quick job but treachery and betrayal slow them down.

This is such a great story. you get lots of romance as the men are more than just life partners but more like parts of each other. Like they are one. The sex is hot too and there is a lot of it, yet it doesn’t ake away from the plot or the action.
Now for the action. Wow! A.E. Via writes the action so well that i could visualize every move. It was like watching an action movie on TV.

If you like drama, action, assassins, romance and lots of hot man-sex this is definitely for you!
*I recieved a copy for an honest review*
