    Such a fierce love for Quick and Cayson…

    I went into this book expecting to love these characters, since I’d already developed an affinity for them in Promises 1, and only seem to find an issue with finding a word stronger than love to describe how much I adore them. I’m referring to not only our main characters Quick and Cayson, but all of the charismatic men who make up this series and have won me over and keep me clamoring for the next installment. With a gift for creating uber-alpha males, in Promises 2 A.E. Via brings us Roman “Quick” Webb, a bounty hunter who is just beginning to come to terms with what’s missing from his world and what he’s going to need to accept about himself to get it. After witnessing firsthand how powerful the life altering bond between his son Vaughn and his business partner Duke is, Quick may scoff at the idea of a happily ever after but that’s only because it’s easier than admitting he’s lonely. (If you haven’t read Promises 1 yet, go do that. You can certainly read this without it, but Duke and Vaughn have such an incredible story that it’s more than well worth it.) In direct contrast to the rough and tumble Quick, Dr. Cayson Chauncey wears his professional persona like a shield that protects him as effectively as Quick’s Kevlar. After tentatively approaching and being aggressively rejected by the man, Cayson resists the bounty hunter’s efforts to get back in his good graces, and so begins the dance. The chemistry between these two characters is off the charts with its intensity and I couldn’t help but throw myself wholeheartedly into this book. After Quick’s harsh treatment of him in the previous book, I very impatiently waited for this story and found myself aching over Cayson and more than a little anxious to see how Quick could possibly redeem himself after such a colossal misstep. A.E. Via does not disappoint, and Roman’s efforts to impress Cayson despite outside interference are endearing. With Cayson’s unsuccessful history with men, and his most recent “friend” refusing to accept that Cayson is moving on, his vulnerability triggers Quick’s protective instincts and it entertained me to watch him try to balance respecting Cayson’s ability to take care of himself with his instinctive need to lay a well deserved beating on Joe. I found Joe to be a little over-the-top for a lover who had been insisting they remain a secret until that point, but I think that it’s a necessary trait when dealing with a foil to characters written to be as dominant as Quick – had Joe been a little more reserved in his efforts, the balance between the adversaries would have been off and felt unnatural. When the situation escalates and causes a rift amongst the bounty hunters, Quick’s loyalty to Cayson is already so deeply entrenched despite the newness of their relationship that there is no question of what extreme measures he would take to protect his lover. That unwavering devotion translates into some very bold and steamy love scenes as the men explore their relationship. Not only do these men fill the void in each other’s lives and offer sorely lacking balance, but the sanctuary they find in each other is heartwarming. I loved to see the softer side of Quick flourish under Cayson’s touch. It was so great to revisit the crew from Nothing Special and Promises 1, with characters that are so dynamic populating every book in the series, it’s hard to identify who I miss most… but God and Day will always have a tight hold on me and I look forward to every new release just so I can get another fix of them. A.E. Via also lays the groundwork for more of the Bounty Hunters, and I’m almost twitching with excitement at what Brian and Ford’s story holds. I can’t wait for the next installment! Please note that I received a complementary advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
