Embracing His Syn (Nothing Special Book 2) by AE Via

embracing synBlurb
(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.


Syn is a detective new to the team led by God and Day, who we met in AE Via’s Nothing Special. He is a tough guy and is freaked out by the way God and Day run their team and their lives.

Then he meets Furi, a down on his luck bartender who ends up being involved in one of their cases.

Though Syn has never even had sexual thoughts about another man, at least not serious ones, he finds himself captivated by Furi.

Furi has been down this road before, lived with an abusive ex who couldn’t reconcile himself with the fact that he liked to be the bottom in their relationship and took out his confusion with his fists.

The two dance around their attraction and the various issues that come with it, as well as handle the impending threats upon their heads – by vindictive exes and slimy porn stars – and with some help from God and Day, find themselves in love.

Though it is not necessary to have read Nothing Special, it sure does make this book more enjoyable if you have.

I just love AE Via’s characters and her love stories. They are tough yet passionate. Super sexy but also touching and sweet.

The sex in this book is epic and the action is fast and a lot of the times, really funny.

I loved seeing God, Day, Ro and Johnson again and though there isn’t a giant ménage scene with all 6 guys… it woulda been hot!

I really enjoyed this sequel to Nothing Special and highly recommend both books! 5 out of 5 stars
