Product description

Product Description

Duke Morgan owns and operates one of the largest bail bond companies in Atlanta. Not only does he bond criminals out of jail, he and his notorious group of bounty hunters will also track them down and ensure they show up for court.

Roman ‘Quick’ Webb is Duke’s business partner and best friend. Both men are in their forties and have given up on the happily ever after with the ranch-style home, and white picket fence. They’d both tried it and failed miserably. But they have their friendship and they have the business.

When Quick’s son, Vaughan Webb returns – after seven years - from studying abroad with his law degree in hand, he’s back to claim what he’s always wanted…his fathers’ best friend… Duke Morgan. Vaughan has always claimed to be a classic gentleman with an old soul. He didn’t party and screw up in school like his buddies. He was focused and dedicated to becoming the man worthy of Duke’s love.
It’s a complex and messy situation as Duke and Quick figure out how to still be best friends when one of them is sleeping with his friend’s one and only son. But when Duke is hurt on the job, all the unimportant trivialities fall to the wayside and Vaughan and Quick put their heads together to save Duke.

Part I of the Promises story is about Duke and Vaughan. Part II will be about Quick and his realization that it’s not too late for any of them to find love.

Wonderful characters that just got lost in all the ramble. I really like this author but this book just isn't up to par. "You can see me" is a great book by A. E. Via, great characters and great story. "Promises" just didn't measure up. The two main characters were beautiful but the story got bogged down with all the medical drama and detail that wasn't necessary. Also the medical info was not always accurate, and I would know because I am a nurse. The story tended to also go round and round in circles repeating the same details again and again, over and over, yada yada, blah blah, boring. It took forever for the couple to finally get to their HEA, the book was almost finished and to top it off the author overlaid this section with the begins of a new romance between two other characters setting the scene for book two. This detracted from the main characters coming together and watered down their romantic happy ending. Three stars for two lovely characters who deserved more attention to them and a better ending.

I was hesitant about reading this novel but did eventually purchase and read it. For the most part, I've been enjoying A.E.'s novels since she released her first one. I appreciate that the majority of her characters are what I would term a 'man's man' and even better, they're often of a mature age bracket. I read her previous novel that introduced Duke and gave Judge his partner.

When I read his interaction with Judge in Don't Judge, part of the Nothing Special series, I felt for him. It was very obvious that he was being used sexually speaking and even then that he felt he wasn't worth anything more in a way. And A.E. carried this on in her portrayal of him in Promises: Part One.

Another review on here mentioned that they thought Duke was at times written like an inexperienced teenager. I did not get that impression. My impression was that Duke had no self esteem when it came to himself as a man and what he could offer. He knew what he was, what he needed and desired sexually. But given his looks didn't often obtain it. He settled with Judge and that damaged his self esteem even more.

When Vaughan entered the picture, I initially expected denial etc given their relationship of him being Duke's best friends' son. Thankfully Vaughan is fully grown. A.E. tells you his age very early on in the story and the age difference is actually quite negligible. Vaughan has also been honest with his father about his feelings for Duke from the beginning, so there is no surprise in that regard. Like the other review, I expected and would have liked to have seen a lot more of Duke's bounty hunter work.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This was really good story . The bounty hunter aspect was great. I'd hoped to see more of Duke's work life in the story. While Duke's job as a bounty hunter has a huge impact on the story, Promises Part 1 is very much focused on the relationship between Duke and Vaughan.

I liked this couple. They had good chemistry and I liked the mix of hard and soft, dominant and submissive. I did feel that sometimes Duke's behaviour and thoughts in the relationship were more like that of an inexperienced teenager than a 45 year old man.

My favourite things about this story was actually surgeon Dr Chauncey. He was sweet and caring and he broke my heart. I look forward to seeing him hopefully get a happily ever after in Promises Part 2.
