I'm going to used what seems to be Ms. Via's favorite word in this book (it was used a lot!), and say this was an "amazing" read. I Loved it! I'm so glad this isn't the end of the series. I can't wait for book 5!

Be still my swooning heart. I friggin loved Brian and getting to know more about him in his own story. This big silent man had so much hidden depth and it was an amazing experience to learn all of those parts of him as Sway was there to pull him out of his own pain. I also really enjoyed that even though it wasn't always easy for Sway and Brian, there was nothing that was keeping them apart once they had decided they needed each other. They were both drawn to
Ever since Brian was introduced earlier in the series, I knew I wanted to read his book. He was mute and you only know he was a POW. His brother Ford is very protective of him. But Brian wants someone of his own. He has been seeking in quick one night stands but no one sticks around long enough to actually hear him without words.
"You think your mutism is unattractive but its not. Do you know what a relief it is to be able to feel what youre saying that you use your touch to express yourself?

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 ...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

4.25 stars.

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.

Love it.
Love Brian and Sway!
Beautiful story, no unnecessary drama, no instalove.

These books are a guilty pleasure for me but I do get enjoyment out of them. Brian is another of the uber-alpha characters this author loves to create. He met Sway at the end of book three, discovering he was Danas friend. The progression of Brian and Sways romance was relatively slow, the big guy being emotionally insecure because hes mute and Sway has abandonment issues, I think. In between, Brian is working cases and Sway has gotten promoted but fending off an overly-pushy doctor.

** 4.75 stars **

I knew I will love Brian and Sway's love story, and I was right! It was romantic, sweet, slightly angsty and chock full of passion and love. It felt like those two men were made for each other - they complemented each other so well.

Brian King is a hero, he survived what others could not. But no matter how many accolades he has, the one thing that he craves still eludes his grasp - love. He is strikingly handsome man, loyal and brave but what he can not overcome is his silence.

My heart is so full
Was this not the most deserved, happily ever after, youve ever seen??

Brian is my favorite! I knew he would be, I feel like Ive been waiting for him forever.
My heart broke for him so many times until now, Ive never waited for a book like I did his. Him and Sway, they belong together. Theyre perfect together and I knew thatstill, 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

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!!

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

4.5 stars - Brians story is much anticipated, and I dont 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

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

Brian has lived through things in his military past that no person should ever have

Brian and Sway began in Book 3, though you dont 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. Hes 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 way ...more
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 ...more

All the time I kept reading this book, I kept thinking that I had read this plot somewhere before.
That said, I still enjoyed it.
Loved Sway and his family and the way he was with Brian.
Even had a cameo from God.

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

I am so glad that I waited until I had Brian's story before I jumped back into this series with Part 2! I would have been horribly pissed if I had had to wait for months on end to get to read this little jewel in the rough! Yep, our man Brian sure does clean up nicely! But, enough with the spoilers... let's get down to the nitty-gritty of the story!

As much as I have loved all the MCs in this series... Sway is my true favorite! Not that I am not thankful for the service of every man and woman

I think this is fine as a standalone, but only just. Its really much better as part of the series. We know all these guys and their contributions make more of an impact as a result, when youve read the previous books.

On its own its a lovely DA/hurt/comfort romance with alpha males all over the place falling in love and being sappy and sweet and sentimental. Not to mention having awesome sex!

AE Via is really wonderful at giving us warm, caring, alpha males who find just the right partner but boy
