(This story contains characters from previously published novel ‘Nothing Special’ but Embracing His Syn is a stand-alone novel.)
Sergeant Corbin ‘Syn’ Sydney transferred from the Philadelphia Police Department as soon as he’d heard there was going to be an opening on Lieutenant Cashel Godfrey and Lieutenant Leonidis Day’s Atlanta Narcotics Task Force. Syn’s primary goal in his life has been to be a great cop. There has been no time for relationships, romance, or especially love.
Syn was dedicated to his new force, focused and ready to back up God and Day as their third in command, but what he wasn’t ready for was the feelings he got from seeing the love they had for each other.
Syn’s all prepared to accept his lonely fate until he walks into a small pub and meets long-haired,
tattooed, bartender, Furious Barkley. Before he can even understand why, Syn’s feeling things he barely recognizes: passion, yearning, cravings; and if the dark, lustful gazes are anything to go by, Furious might be feeling the same things for him.
Just one thing needs to happen before Furi and Syn can give each other what’s been missing from their lives for so long…
Syn needs to allow happiness into his world and Furi needs to learn to open his heart and trust again.
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…
You’ll embrace Syn…

To be honest, I did beta read about 60% of this book for Ms. Via when she first started it, and when she was finished she asked if I wanted to read the rest of the story and of course I had to say yes because I loved what she had written to the point that I had read.
Now, onto my review!
I really loved the beginning of this story! It completely sucked me in and I just couldn’t turn the pages quick enough. There was a ton happening throughout that kept my attention, and especially since I don’t really enjoy cop stories, I was shocked at how much I did enjoy this book! I thought that Syn and Furi’s characters were really well done. There was a lot of sexual tension between them, and when they did finally get together, it was off the charts explosive.
There was A LOT happening in this book, and that was one of the slight downfalls. There was the tension between Syn and Furi, the murders that were happening, and the drama that was following Furi around. There were sometimes that it felt like there was too much happening, but at the same time it was very fun to keep up at the same time.
I did like how God and Day did have a big role in this book as well because they were very interesting
characters, even in their story. There were sometimes when I couldn’t stop laughing at how they were acting, and there were other times where it did feel like they took over the story. To me, that is a downfall because even though they are secondary characters, they do still have a major impact on a story.
Overall, I would say that this was a really good read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys this genre, cop books, and books that have a fair amount of smut in them.
