I've embraced my Syn!

Embracing His Syn by A.E. Via
Reviewed by Mike
 
(Author blurb)
(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...

and...

You'll embrace Syn...
 
     I have to say, this author has yet to disappoint! As the blurb says, this includes characters from previous books, but can be read as a stand alone story. I highly encourage everyone to check out the previous books only because they too are fantastic!
     This author has managed to create characters that are so alive you can almost anticipate their reactions before you read them lol. She has created a cop drama that is believable and so fun. Not a cop here, but man if these guys were the norm, I'd so get a badge! I also have to say, her sense of humor is perfectly timed, and so well delivered. For a female author she writes these strong men's personalities better than most I've read. The love scenes are very hot, and fit seamlessly into the story without feeling like they were forced in.
    A.E. Via has shown us with this story that abuse can affect anyone.  When you meet Furious Barkley, the last thing you would call him is a victim.  While his ordeal has left him bruised, he's not broken.  He does what he has to do in order to survive.  He isn't going to lay down and give up.  He's following his dreams no matter how hard it gets along the way. 
   Corbin 'Syn' Sydney has worked hard his entire career to get where he is.  He's sacrificed his personal life, but never his morals, to get to the top.  Never willing to take the easy road to get ahead.   He's resigned himself to a lonely life.  Nothing could've prepared him for the sweet, sexy and complicated bartender.
   Can't say enough good about this author, truly one of a kind!  When I read her books, I don't put em down.  She's definitely an author I'll buy every book from, and re-read often.
