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.

I was so happy when I found out Duke was getting his own story. He really needed to have someone special. Lucky for him, Vaughan knew he was just that guy. Both of these characters were well written and I enjoyed this story very much. Vaughan had known for a very long time that he wanted Duke. He made his plans to finish school and get his life together so that when all was said and done he would be in the perfect position to claim his man. I loved the devotion and absolute certainty that Vaughan had about him and Duke. He left Duke with no real option but to be with him. When Duke gets hurt Vaughan steps up and does what he can to fix the situation. All in all a extremely well done story that I will be reading again.

This is the first book by A.E. Via that I have read, but it certainly won't be the last. I need to read Quick and Cayson's story (at least, I hope it's Cayson!). This is Duke and Vaughan's story though, and it was fantastic reading. Vaughan has had a 'crush' on Duke for years and now he is older, he is prepared to show Duke just how much of a man he is. Vaughan has his dad's approval even though Quick thought that it would fade in time. This proved not to be the case and Vaughan is determined to get his man. However, life has a way of changing plans and in this case, it is Duke getting a severe beating and almost dying on the job that changes things. Vaughan makes a decision and ends up saving Duke's life, although he doesn't want Duke to know in case he feels indebted to him. Promises is one hell of a read, with friendship, loyalty and love being just some of the themes covered. Well-written and smoothly paced, with excellent character development and growth, this book certainly ticked every box. I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this story and can't wait to read the next in the series. Highly recommended. * I received this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Not What I Expected!! OMG I absolutely loved Duke and Vaughan's story. I had been waiting for Duke's story after meeting him in Don't Judge Me and him having his heart broken by Judge. However, I was not prepared for the story that A.E. Via gave me!! I had no idea that Duke and Vaughan's story would be so touching, heartfelt, emotional and funny too, because, hey, this is an A.E. Via book. Wow!! This was an extremely powerful story about how far one will go for the person that he loves. And all I can say is that Vaughan is an amazing man and Duke is extremely lucky to have him in his corner. Great job on this emotionally gripping story, A.E.Via. Now I am waiting for Quick and Dr. Carson's story. I hope the wait isn't too long!!

Duke is the owner of one of the busiest bails bond company in Atlanta. He makes sure that he and his bountyhunters track down criminals and ensure they show up in court. Quick is Dukes business partner and best friend, as the guys are now in their 40s, they have come to realize the perfect life is not always obtainable. Now Quick's son has returned home seven years later from law school and he's ready to claim what he's always wanted….Duke! The friendship between Duke and Quick hits a rough road and they're trying to figure out how to remain friends when Duke starts sleeping with Quicks son. When Duke gets hurt on the job is when the more important things in life become crystal-clear to the men. When I saw this novel was part one, I was thrilled as I love A.E. Via's series, it's a great place to escape to. The story belongs to Duke and Vaughn and part two will be all about Quick and possibly his love story. If you loved NOTHING SPECIAL then you will love this series. I loved how Vaughn had nothing in his sights but Duke and nothing is going to get in his way and how dominant he is was a nice change in the May-December relationships. I enjoyed the secondary character of Cayson and I really hope he shows up in part 2 with Quick. Was sweet how Vaughn has always had a huge crush on Duke and his father always knew it. I was like OMG Duke has no idea what's in store for him when Vaughn comes a knockin. Nobody does Alphas like AE Via does! This was an amazing first instalment of A.E. Via's series, Bounty Hunters as she created such an emotional and beautiful story with some of the most brilliant characters I have ever read. I love the men in this book as these are real hot men. The way the author creates these amazing alphas is simply brilliant. I couldn't recommend Promises-Part 1 enough for everyone to read!!!!

Another erotic and romantic love story of two Alpha males. The poor editing (spell checker) is more distracting in this novel than the previous one. Correct English that makes sense and not just an assembledge of correctly spelled words is a lost art in the digital age. People though are after a hot story which this is. Enjoy.
