Roman “Quick” Webb is one badass bounty hunter on the crime-filled streets of Atlanta. He’s fearless when it comes to carrying out his dangerous job alongside his longtime best friend and business partner, Duke. However, there is one thing that has begun to cause Quick concern and it’s the dreadful thought of living out the rest of his life alone. Seeing his best friend and his son fall in love and sharing the special connection that only true soulmates can, has made him all the more aware of what’s lacking in his life. Love.
Dr. Cayson Chauncey has been wildly attracted to the big, tattooed hunter for almost a year, ever since he performed the surgery that saved Quick’s best friend’s life. Cayson must’ve mistaken Quick’s gratitude for something more, because the one time he tried to make his desires known, he was harshly rebuffed and left on the man’s doorstep feeling stupid for hitting on an obviously very straight man.
Cayson never dated a man who was willing to come out of hiding and be with him. Now at almost forty, Cayson is intent on no longer being anyone’s dirty secret. Having experienced countless disappointments, and having taken a stand not to fall for any more tricks, Cayson is more than a little skeptical when Quick comes around asking for a second chance to prove himself. The gorgeous man had already made it clear he was definitely uninterested in Cayson… or so he’d thought.
Dr. Chauncey stirred up Quick’s suppressed, most carnal desires from a place deep down inside of him. He’d reacted so badly the first time that now his sexy surgeon wanted nothing to do with him. It was going to take a fair amount of patience and a whole lot of wooing involved as Quick sets out to convince Cayson that he’s worth another chance and that he is the brave lover who Cayson has been looking for.
With a scorned ex and a very dangerous job thrown into the mix, Cayson’s happiness and all of Quick’s promises may not be as easy to keep as they’d hoped.
Author's Note: PARTS ONE AND TWO IN THIS SERIES CAN BOTH BE READ AS STANDALONES. THERE ARE NO CLIFFHANGERS IN EITHER BOOKS.

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
It seems like I'd waited forever to read Quick ad Cays' story and now that I have, I am not disappointed in the least. It is a tad different from the style I'm used to reading AE Via but this is just as good, just as satisfying, and just as action filled. These elements make for a great read.
Quick is Vaughn's father and we've been familiar with him since Promises #1 and learned about his strengths, weaknesses and needs. We also got to know him for his quick-to-action-ask-later attitude which got tested quite often in this book.
One of the scenes that had me snorting out was when he handed Cays roses. It was both endearing and sweet and showed us a side of Quick we never expected to see or read. As for Cay, well, this guy's got a lot going for him but goes about life in a kind of eyes wide shut attitude which opens him for a lot of heartache. Fortunately, Quick was quick to figure his Cays out and made sure, or tried to, his lover never got hurt.
There is plenty of angst in this story and it kind of overwhelmed me at times for I dearly wanted to reach in and strangle Dr. Joe. Yes, Joe. ugh, hate that this man had to come in and try to ruin things for everyone here.
Overall, this is a pretty fast paced read and if you are already a fan of the author, then this is the book for you. If you've not tried her out yet, it's about time you picked her up and settle and be romanced.
Note: eARC received from author for an honest review.
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 eighth novel, she has plenty more to come. So stalk her – she loves that - because the male on male action is just heating up!
