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

Cussing and ranting below and maybe a few spoilers too. If this will offend your delicate sensibilities, please read no further.

Dana was a damn pussy and Ford was a motherfluffin’ dick. There I said it. These two frustrated the HELL out of me.

Dana spent 50% of the book with a girlfriend, who was a bitch (and BTW…if you don’t like MF scenes in your MM books, you might want to skip this one). He was too much of a pussy to man the fuck up and break up with her. He shouldn’t

My favorite in the series so far.

I totally understand why Dana annoyed some of my GR friends. For a badass bounty hunter, his spinelessness when it came to dealing with his girlfriend made no sense...AT ALL! But once that mess was over (and sadly it took awhile), I just really liked Ford and Dana as a couple. Dana was Ford's "brat" and Ford was Dana's "old man". It was easy for me to forget about everything else. It also helped that out of all the books I sampled, this one the one th

This one was hard to rate since I really liked the story and characters but I had issues with the whole girlfriend thing. Not that Dana had a girlfriend but the fact that it didn't feel necessary at all. She was barely even in the book and for me didn't add anything to the story at all so I just didn't get why Dana taking her back was made a big deal. Just my opinion on that and I still really liked Ford and Dana together so it was a still a winning boo

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.

This book centers around former SEAL Lieutenant, Bradford ‘Ford’ King (46) and his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana Cadby (33-34?). Ford and Dana has to work together, trust each other, but after Dana took back his ex-girlfriend Jessica (annoying as fuck woman), Ford's attitude towards him changed completely: aggressive and downright antagonistic. All Dana want is Ford's respect, a respect he feels he deserves, while Ford thinks Dana is spineless after ta

I absolutely loved this authors Nothing Special series, but I just can not get into this series. I read book 1 and just didn't like it at all. I skipped book 2 because no way was I spending that much on a book when I didn't like the first one. I bought this because it was on sale for a buck and I love a good hate to love relationship. Once again it was a fail for me. I'm just glad I got it on sale so I don't have to be annoyed by spending the $7 it would have been.

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.

The first part of the book was questionable and I shook my head many times while reading it. So, Dana seems to have problems with his own self worth and lack of self confidence and becomes glutton for punishment because being with his girlfriend Jessica and knowing she didn't care one whit about him felt like a punishment to me. It's difficult for Dana to fully appreciate who he is and what he has achieved because of his past but I just don't know why he won't stand up for himself. There is a MF ...more

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

4.5/5 - One sexy beast of a bounty hunter plus his equally badass marksman and chemistry for daaayyyssss equals one helluva good book.

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

I'm a little off kilter with this ending of the series. Dana and Ford are two strong Alpha badass males who want each other but don't know how to go about getting it. But eventually they get their act together and work things out amongst tracking down a dangerous meth drug dealer.

The thing that had me wanting more was Brian and Sway's story. I understand that these two characters are attached to Dana and Ford's storyline but I feel that they deserve their own story. Brian's disability should be

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

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

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!

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
