Embracing His Syn by A.E. Via

 (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…

Disclaimer: This book DOES NOT contain scenes of polygamous sexual pairings.

Okay, so I loved the first book Nothing Special and rushed on to Embracing His Syn.  In this story, Corbin Sydney, called Syn, is the new sergeant under God and Day’s command. Besides getting used to working for these strong men, he’s also trying to figure things out in his new city. Like the gorgeous man named Furious who works at the bar across the street.

Furi is hiding from an abusive ex-husband and the last thing he needs is a pushy cop who will probably do the same thing. Only, Syn isn’t what he expected. He’s protective, not abusive and to add to it? He wants to submit to Furi’s dominance, though he has never done so before with anyone else. It’s hard to develop a relationship, though, with his ex stalking his every move and a killer who is after him.

While I loved this story as much as the first book, I took it to 4 stars, because the head hopping was extreme. And, there was one sex scene where Syn is on his stomach with his hands handcuffed behind him. The author wrote him grabbing the lube and condoms and handing them to Furi when there would be no way he could do that.

But still – a great book in the series. It still has the action, God and Day’s strength, and I highly suggest it.

 A.E. Via is still a fairly new author in the beautiful gay erotic genre. Her writing embodies everything from spicy to scandalous. Her stories often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.
When she’s not clicking away at her laptop, she devotes herself to her family—a husband and four children, her two pets, a Maltese dog and her white Siamese cat, ELynn, named after the late, great gay romance author E. Lynn Harris.
While this is only her fifth novel, she has plenty more to come. So stalk her – she loves that – because the male on male action is just heating up!
