A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story.
The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – tha

I am a huge A.E. Via fan, so everytime a new book comes out, it makes me giddy ;)

This time we get Dana and Ford's story. Those of you, who have read the previous books, know who they are already. Those of you who haven't.....what are you waiting for ??!!

I don't think that this book was for me. I was thinking about a rating of 2.5 stars but in the end decided to give it 3 because my reasonsfor not enjoying the story are totally subjective so it didn't seem fair. In my review I'll mention what I didn't like but I'll try to be as objective as I can so you can get an idea of what the book is about and decide for yourself if it's for you or not.

My biggest problem with this book was the fact that I couldn't connect with the characters. I didn't care

A hard-headed 46 year old former Navy SEAL and a passionate 33 year old Sharpshooter/Watchman confront their attraction to one another while we sit back and watch the passion bubble over? Yes, please!



Bradford "Ford" King and Dana Cadby both work with Duke and Quick at Duke’s Bail Bonds and Recoveries in Atlanta, Georgia. After Ford and his brother Brian joined Duke's team he was partnered with Dana and the sparks have been flying for three years as the two have tried to deny the feeling

The Bounty Hunters are back! This time its Ford and Dana’s story, and their three year partnership has become strained. I really enjoy getting alternate POV’s for characters and the extra insight. Dana is bisexual and he has always wished Ford would see him as more than a too young and bratty work partner. Needing companionship, Dana has gotten back together with his girlfriend and Ford isn't happy. Ford is too afraid to ever open up about his own feelings but he can't help his jealousy.

Dana and Ford….and a little bit of Brian...

I’ll say that I’m obsessed with Brian and I cannot wait for his story; especially with Sway, although I have a feeling something bad’s gonna happen because they’re so lovey already and I don’t want that to end. Fingers crossed.

In saying that, let’s talk about Dana and Ford.
Ford is grouchy and kind of a jerk in the beginning, these guys, I swear, none of them know how to talk to each other. Dana’s had feelings for Ford for the last several years, but F

Let me preface this review by saying, while this story does stand well on its own, I would still urge you to read the previous books first. You'll have a better understanding of the various secondary characters including Ford, Dana and Ford's brother Brian.

Ford comes across as an overbearing alpha male. He continually pushes his brother, Brian, to seek counseling for his selective mutism, a side affect of Brian being a POW while in the military. And he pushes his partners buttons, all the wrong

This series, like the author's Nothing Serious series, is high octane, low thinking, fun. I love all the hot alpha maleness, and that, once they got together, there wasn't a lot of stupidity, denying their feelings. Once they realize they're in love, that's it for them. Great!

While the editing here was much improved, I still haad a few occasions where the timing confused me. I would think days or weeks had passed by, only to find it's the next morning, they're looking for a bounty who's likely g

This was good, okay? No, this wasn't just good, I really loved this book. I was a little bit hesitant when I started reading because I didn't realize that all of the books in this series are called Promises and I accidentally started on book 3, but fear not! This was a pretty great standalone. I can't imagine how awesome it would have been if I got some of the bac

From the moment Ford and his brother Brian showed up in the first book of this series, my interest was piqued, and I was hoping there would be stories for each of them. Here in part three we get Ford’s story with Dana, with the added bonus of the attention-grabbing glimpse into Brian’s as well.

First, let me get out of the way my thoughts on Dana’s girlfriend. I thought Jessica was one of the most pushy, self-centered, uncaring women I’ve had the misfortune of reading about. Dana frustrated me by

Promises 3 is Dana and Ford's story and true to A.E. Via's writing style we get the sexy and gruff partnership turned relationship that will sizzle the hair on your arms.

Dana has the respect of his team, he's earned his place and the title of the best marksman there is, but for some reason, he can't seem to get the same from his partner, Ford. The same man he has fantasized about for years but holds back—for fear of scaring off—he assumes, straight partner.

However, for reasons known only to him,

Promises part 3, Featuring Dana and Ford with a little side of Brian (Ford's brother)

This series has a lot of similarities between each book. You can expect the same tone, adrenaline rush level, alpha-ness and an HEA. But what makes each book unique is the set of characters it features.

Whats unique about Dana and Ford is their partnership and habit of antagonizing each other. Ford more on the gruff side because he's a bit disappointed in Dana, and Dana on the teasing side, just trying to get a

The anticipation was real and I actually had to force myself not to tear into this story when it landed into my inbox. I have loved the writing of A.E. Via from the first book that I read from her and I will continue to devour them, as I do several other writers.

As much as I like the bad-a$$ness of it all, this book felt more like a romance story with artillery. I felt as if A.E. went back to her roots and drew on You Can See Me as inspiration. A five

One of the lucky ones to receive the ARC for this book. Could not put it down. Promises 3 is Ford and Dana's book and they are like hot from the word go. This book just flows and I was surprised about Ford's sexuality and questions about Dana's. Whenever they are in the same space, you can see the electricity in the air and the confusion that seems to mar them every time they seem to get close. Dana is marksmen and Ford should have seen that he had him in his sights. LOL. Once they start seeing ...more

Promises Part 3 by A.E. Via
Five Stars

Promises Part 3 is the third book in the Bounty Hunters Series by A.E. Via. I highly recommend that you read these books in order because they flow one into the next. Also you wouldn't want to miss out on Ms. Via's skill bringing her characters to life. Each book has gotten better and better, which is hard to do in a series. This is Ford and Dana's story and they are truly intriguing men. The twists and turns the story takes leaves you on the edge of your sea

I have read A.E. Via from her very first book and have continued to excitedly follow all of her series as soon as they were released. And Promises Part 3, Ford and Dana's story in the Bounty Hunters series, was worth the wait to read! The series has flowed from one book to the next so flawlessly, just as her other series have done.

I was so hesitant to do this review because I haven’t been reading like I normally do. I felt rusty and not on my game but as soon as I started reading Ford and Dana’s story I was hooked, so much so that it took me three hours to read the entire thing.

This installment of the Promises series was possibly the most realistic book out of the three. I could totally relate to Dana and the need to companionship even when you know the person is horribly wrong for you. It was refreshing to see something

I was given an ARC for this book.
Promises part 3 was filled with intensity that showed between Ford and Dana. It showed how they love and crave each other from so close yet so far until it became to much to bare. No longer holding it in after three years of what ifs and dreams it came to a an end in the best way possible.

I also loved Brian and my heart broke for him; wanting him to have a love that can be with him despite of him being mute and I love where its heading. Lets just say Brian deserv

I loved the story of Ford and Dana. I have been patiently waiting for this book and was not disappointed. Although it took awhile for these 2 get together, the intensity between was off the charts until they finally came together in some steamy scenes. I loved that we got to see a preview of Book 4 with Ford's brother and Dana's best friend.

4.5 star review by The Blogger Girls.

For some crazy reason, I missed this series. As this one stated it was a stand alone, I figured I would jump in. I had no trouble following along with who was who or the makeup of this group. Dana and Ford are Bounty Hunter partners who work for men whose stories are told in the previous two books, which I am definitely going to go back and read!

Anyhoo, Dana and Ford are interested in each other, or were interested, but never let it be known. So, since Dana f

This book was provided by AE Via and read on behalf of Thorns & Ink.

Nothing like an action packed novel with tender love peppered throughout. This book is perfect for a hot steamy night. Much like what we are having here in St. Louis, MO. For this book, we are heading 8 hours south to Atlanta.

The writing is solid, the plot is full to the brim with car chases, fights, and with enough of the sexy bits to please. The characters are well developed and they maintain their depth. I have enjoyed th

Book 3 of the Bounty Hunter series by AE Via does not disappoint. If you have read the other 2 books in this series then you already know what you're in store for. AE gives it to us in this book as always and yet again leaves us all waiting for Book 4.

Book 3 is about the relationship development between Dana and Ford and what it takes to come out at the end with a solid, strong and loving relationship. As there is an age difference between Dana and Ford it's an even more interesting dynamic. Dan

I love a good partners to lovers romance! Working together as bounty hunters, the retired SEAL Lieutenant and the expert marksman are a formidable partnership. Outside of work, poor communication and frustrated sexual attraction have made Ford and Dana’s personal relationship almost impossible.

OK, A.E. Via does it again. Awesome work!

A.E Via has the ability to highlight the sheer physical brawn of Alpha men yet showcase their vulnerabilities with such amazing depth. Friendship, Family, Teamwork, and Love are strong elements that transcend all of A.E. Via's work. Promises Part 3 is no exception.

Dana and Ford are INSANE. The pull of their attraction was wrapped up into personal insecurities that each man had to work thru to reach each other.

I have been waiting for this book since Promises Part 2. This whole series is amazing!

Ford and Dana were good together, it just took them a little time to figure it all out. They are partners and there's always some tension brewing between the two of them. Ford, even though he is a bad ass, he is also very vulnerable , same goes for Dana. Ford doesn't have the experience of having someone want him. He's thinking he's not good enough for Dana, but little does he know.
