Embracing His Syn
(Nothing Special #2)
by A.E. Via
Narrated By: Aiden Snow
Length: 11hrs 14mins
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.

Embracing His Syn by A.E. Via
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought the narration by Aiden Snow was nicely done.

A lot of characters to keep track of and his voice fit the story

Syn get a heck of an introduction to the narcotics task force courtesy of God and Day. He’s proud to become a member, wanting to prove he has the stuff to be as good as the rest of the crew. Celebrating his new job, he meets a bartender named Furious.

Syn isn’t gay, at least he doesn’t think he is. But Furi is such beautiful man. He doesn’t understand his reaction to him. They tentatively begin a relationship. Syn is remarkably calm about being with a man. When Furi’s past catches up with him, Syn goes into protection mode, taking care of his man.

Another great book in this series. I think the reason I like the books so much is how all the characters play off each other. Not afraid to show their feelings yet still tough when it’s called for. This book could be read alone but to get the feel for all the characters it should be read in order.

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.
