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.

I loved God and Day’s story so much that I worried I wouldn’t have the same feelings about this book. I was so wrong. This was just as captivating, just as full of humor and heat and tension. And the story line just really had me.

Corbin “Syn” Sydney has transferred from Philly to the Atlanta PD to work with the infamous duo of God and Day on their narcotics team. Being new to the area, he walks into a bar and… well, yeah. You know the rest.

Bartender/Porn Puppy Furious Barkley put up a good fight, but he needed someone like Syn to take care of him. Especially since his ex-husband and brother in law were out to get him.

I pretty much loved everything about this book. Both Syn and Furi were adventurous and romantic, proud and silly, wild and crazy. They just worked together and the heat was intense.

The end scene was such a nail biter, and I love that A.E. Via brings it all together with so much drama and exquisite torment each time for the reader.

There is no way any other narrator could create the masterpiece that Aiden Snow has. His voices are spot on and smooth. He can go from romantic as hell to dirty as sin in one breath. You don’t want to miss the audio version of this thrilling story.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.


Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
