Men found him attractive, interesting even. He was like a fascinating experiment gone wrong that men liked to investigate. He’d get a date - or two, if he was lucky - but it wasn’t long before Brian’s darkness showed, and the men were running from him.

Brian King was honorably discharged from the United States Navy five years ago. He’d left with the highest honors a man ca

4.5 stars- loved it. Such a beautiful story between Sway & Brian that highlights how much can be said without words. Sway is desperately attracted to Brian but Brian looks for reasons that Sway will leave - his mutism, his PTSD or his job. What he realizes is there are others out there who love him as much as his brother Ford, he just has to accept it. I really enjoy this author .... loved the brief God & Day cameo and I sure hope the cute Chef and twinky nurse Adam make another appearan ...more

Everyone pretty much knows I'm a sucker for all things A.E. Via. Are there some editing issues in this book? A few. Are there some cringe-worthy phrases in this book? A few. Do I care about that? Not at all. Brian was just as alpha, and vulnerable as I had been hoping all this time. Sway and he were the perfect pair. They were made for each other, and it was perfection. The added bonus of the cameos from certain members of the "Nothing Special" series made it even better. I rate this a 5 because ...more
I had been waiting for this book for sometime because the Brian and Sway teasers weaved into the previous book was just deliciously tempting and I was super excited to read this when I finally got this on my Kindle.

I liked Sway and Brian as individuals & it's indisputable that their chemistry both in and out of the bedroom was fantastic. I loved it whenever both of them were on page. The story line was good , the pacing was good, the secondary characters were also solid enough (I loved Tweet

My heart is so full…
Was this not the most deserved, happily ever after, you’ve ever seen??

Brian is my favorite! I knew he would be, I feel like I’ve been waiting for him forever.
My heart broke for him so many times until now, I’ve never waited for a book like I did his. Him and Sway, they belong together. They’re perfect together and I knew that…still, I was not ready for it. I actually tried to read it slowly, and was still upset when it was over.

So, Brian, the silent brother, we knew from p

Oh my gosh, where do I even start with this review?? This book was absolutely everything I hoped it would be and more. We got a taste of Brian and Sway in Promises Part 3, and it is clear from their very first interaction in that book that there is something truly special between them.. a once-in-a-lifetime kind of connection. Since that book, I have been chomping at the bit for their book.. knowing their story was going to be one to remember. And let me tell you, AE Via does NOT disappoint!!

“A lot can be said in silence.”

I have been waiting for Brain to get his own book since I met him in the previous books in the Bounty Hunter series. And let me tell you, it was my favorite book in the series, hands down. I loved this book so much!!!

Sway and Brian's relationship wasn't easy. But I loved how effortless they made it look sometimes. They worked together so well and the fact that Sway didn't care that Brian couldn't speak? I loved him even more for that.

From the moment Brian and his brother Ford popped up in this series, I—along with plenty of other fans—wanted both of their stories. In part 3, we not only got Ford’s story, but a naughty and tantalizing taste of the start of Brian’s…and from that moment I was chomping at the bit for Brian and Sway. The wait for their story? Torture…although so very worth it for the incredibly emotional book that details their journey.

Obwohl Brian King im Einsatz seine Stimme verloren hat, arbeitet er erfolgreich für Duke als Kopfgeldjäger. Seine Fähigkeiten sind äußerst nützlich und bis auf seine Sprachlosigkeit, sind Brians Sinne immer scharf. Doch er ist auch einsam. Sein bester Freund ist sein älterer Bruder Ford, auf den er sich immer verlassen konnte. Ford ist nun in einer Beziehung und Brian sehnt sich ebenfalls nach so einem Leben. Doch für Brian ist es schwierig. Die für ihn interessanten Männer wollen sich mit seine ...more

Brian and Sway began in Book 3, though you don’t have to read that book as the author recaps it for us. We pick up here with Brian reaching out, again, and Sway still waffling. He’s afraid of feeling anything for anyone, so he contents himself with work and taking care of everyone else except himself. After one intense introduction and a second surprise meeting, Sway already knows Brian would change all of that in the best possible way and that terrifies him. Thankfully, he gets out of his own w ...more

4.5 stars - Brian’s story is much anticipated, and I don’t think very many people will be disappointed by it. This story sort of overlaps the previous one, though that scene is somewhat retold in the prologue, so you could probably read this on its own, though I definitely recommend you read the previous books to get to know all the players.

Brian is the brother and fellow bounty hunter who is the strong silent type, in every way. He suffers from PTSD and selective mutism due to his time in the m
I cannot get enough of these guys. I'm sure we've all been eagerly anticipating Brian's story and this did not disappoint. I already loved Brian and I already love Sway and I already loved them together so I was so happy to experience their journey to HEA. Sway's mom and Tweetie were just the best characters and we even got a scene with our old pals God and Day. What a treat. I'm also so happy that the "damnit"s in this book were spelled "dammit". I know, stupid, but it drove me nuts in the othe ...more
I just knew Brian would get his happy ending. And it couldn’t have been with anyone but Sway 😊

AE Via out done herself. She created a story for Brian and Sway that was simply amazing. It was so well worth the wait. Brian is one of the characters that you fall immediately in love with and you are pulling for him through any and everything then you throw that precious little Sway into the mix and boom you have an amazing story. This is definitely a one clicker. You will fall not only in love with Brian and Sway but Tweetie because everyone needs a tweetie in their lives.

First I would like to mention to AE that she writes quicker. Waiting for her next book always makes me twitchy. Her writing to me is so strong that I want to devour everything she writes.
We are getting book 4 in the Promises series and they just keep getting better for me. Her stories will pull you in from the first line and keep you engrossed until you finish the last word.
Brian has been in all the other Promises stories but we don't know much about him except that he was in the military and ha

I’m actually freaking speechless!!! Ms. Via wrote Brian and Sway perfectly! Since their story began at the end of Ford’s story, the romance had time to build. They had a chance to really know each other. And Dana is such a character that had me laughing. Ford and Brian had such a beautiful relationship I would have liked to see more of the conflict between them. Brian really needed to tell Ford off just a little. However, Ms Via did a wonderful job already!!!! Brian and Sway weren’t perfect but ...more

5 'Ive been looking forward to this since seeing Brian and Sway meet in the previous book. Their chemistry sizzled ... they intrigued me then and did not disappoint now. As usual Via expertly writes books with enough action in them to keep us guessing, characters with depth and she deals with issues with insight and understanding. Via knows how to write superhot sexy alphas and in Sway we see her write a super feisty firecracker. LOVED this book. Awesome book in an awesome series' stars.
Definitely the best of the Bounty Hunters series. Outstanding installment of the Atlanta crew working for Duke. We even get a cameo from Greene, Ruxs, Steele, Murphy and God's booming voice barreled through the airwaves.

Can I just say, Brian King, and Shay Hamilton were amazing together, honestly one of the most moving romances that I've read for a long time. Their relationship may have started backwards when they hooked up at a sex club for some totally smoking hot casual sex, but their journey

Promises 4 is the fourth book in the Bounty Hunters series by the fabulous AE Via. I have read a handful of her books and I have loved them all. But Promises 4 is by far my favorite. The writing is better, the characters well developed and the story emotional. I fell for Brian in the last book and knew his story was going to be something else! He is ex-military. Honorably discharged and highly decorated. He lost the ability to speak and has PTSD. Even though he can't talk, he's an impressive spe ...more

With this book, AE Via has once again proven why she is one of the dominating forces in the m/m genre. This book has action, suspense, love and of course some steamy sex scenes that will leave every reader fanning him or herself. Every time I read an AE Via book, I'm impressed by the fact that her men are men. Those alpha males are what make her books such amazing reads. Via is breaking the gay stereotype and showing readers that you can be gay and masculine. You can be gay and be a detective or ...more

I've been waiting for this story since I finished Promises Part 3. The King brothers, especially Brian, have been somewhat mysterious and fascinating since their introduction on the first book of this series.

Brian King is living with scars, PTSD, and can no longer speak after a mission gone wrong while in the military. If his size doesn't intimidate you, his intelligence should. Unfortunately, he hasn't had any luck with dating. One or two dates and the men can't seem to get away from

I’ve been waiting for Brian’s book for what seems like forever! I was dying to find out more about him! This book is more relationship driven than hunter driven although there is a couple of ‘hunts’ that happen. During one of the ‘hunts’ we get cameo appearances by some of the Nothing Special guys which I don’t think would make sense without having read those books.

Sway and Brian are pretty perfect together when they can get out of their own way. Sway is afraid to enter a meaningful relationshi

First of all, thank you to Ms. Via. As one of the lucky ones to receive the ARC for Promises 4, I appreciated the opportunity to review this book. Brian and Sway's book did not disappoint at all. The storyline even though it started in Promises 3, I knew this was going to be a journey. Brian was a prisoner of war and came out of that silent and suffering from severe PTSD. Sway suffered through the tragic loss of his twin and caring for his mother. Promises 4 is a relationship journey. With Brian ...more

I absolutely love A.E. Via and her many series. Out of each series, I attach myself to a special couple even though I love them all like they are my own family, Brian and Sway are my top couple in her Promises Series. They have the most to say and they hardly ever open their mouths to each other. That's a love we all want from life.Is to be so completely understandable with a simple look. Or a touch.

Let me just start with saying I LOVE AE Via's stories, ALL of her stories, so I knew I would love this book...but I had no clue just how incredibly beautiful this would be. We have been waiting SO LONG (or at least it feels like forever) for Sway & Brian's story and it was so worth the wait.

I have been waiting for this book from the moment Brian and Sway first met in that club in the previous book. They just gravitates towards each other and fits together .

Brian is the brother of Ford from the previous book and a former SEAL who survived capture with the PTSD, scars and mutism to show for it. But his also fierce, protective, super hot and can either charms his way towards his goal or put the fear of God in you. He's almost sworn of dating since the men he meets runs as

AE Via take us one on amazing ride with the King Brothers and thier amazing men. We meet Brian in an earlier story an our hearts broke for the broken man that was freed from POW camp because his brother refused to give up on him.
