REVIEW: Promises

Title: Promises
Series: Bounty Hunters #1
Author: A.E. Via
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: October 17, 2015
Duke Morgan owns and operates one of the largest bail bond companies in Atlanta. Not only does he bond criminals out of jail, he and his notorious group of bounty hunters will also track them down and ensure they show up for court. Roman ‘Quick’ Webb is Duke’s business partner and best friend. Both men are in their forties and have given up on the happily ever after with the ranch-style home, and white picket fence. They’d both tried it and failed miserably. But they have their friendship and they have the business. When Quick’s son, Vaughan Webb returns – after seven years - from studying abroad with his law degree in hand, he’s back to claim what he’s always wanted…his fathers’ best friend… Duke Morgan. Vaughan has always claimed to be a classic gentleman with an old soul. He didn’t party and screw up in school like his buddies. He was focused and dedicated to becoming the man worthy of Duke’s love. It’s a complex and messy situation as Duke and Quick figure out how to still be best friends when one of them is sleeping with his friend’s one and only son. But when Duke is hurt on the job, all the unimportant trivialities fall to the wayside and Vaughan and Quick put their heads together to save Duke. Part I of the Promises story is about Duke and Vaughan. Part II will be about Quick and his realization that it’s not too late for any of them to find love.


This is not the first book I´ve read from this incredible author, though I have to say it was somehow different from the other books. The beginning was kind of bland and I was completely lost about what was going on. But afterwards things get hot and sexy pretty fast. 

The chemistry between both main characters is out of the charts, it had me completely hooked to my kindle and I was certainly feeling myself the sexual deprivation they were feeeling. The plot is also full of twists and turns that come and go unexpectedly. I literally fell in love with Vaughan, he is so alpha but at the same time so soft with Duke that is unbelievable charming. What surprised me the most about this book was the role Duke and Vaughan played in their relationship, it was unexpected to say the least.

The fact that we also get a sneak peak into the second part of the books, left me craving its release. All in all I enjoyed the book but with a more detailed and clear beginning I would have enjoyed quite more.

“AE does Alphas so well....another thing she does his power bottoms well. Add that to a sexy age gap and well, its one unexpected surprise.” ~ Diva Discussions
“No one writes alpha men like AE Via! I just had to say that. Even if she claims this is not as rough alpha as her others, I’m sorry, I was still fanning myself!” ~ Diverse Reader
