Released November 7, 2013
Angel DeLucca is one of the most sought after gay bachelors in Virginia Beach. He's smart successful, lethal, and more than anything he's drop dead gorgeous. Angel has his pick of the men that come to his popular Oceanfront night club, but lately the one night stands haven't been enough...Angel craves something deeper. When a one night hook-up goes terribly wrong, Angel comes into contact with the breathtaking Maximus (Max) Strong.
Max is a firefighter for the Virginia Beach Fire Department. Max is beautiful, charming, and also very straight. One meeting with the mysteriously, sexy Angel DeLucca and a whiff of that silky, jet black hair, Max finds himself questioning everything he's known to be true about himself. Max tries desperately to understand the new feelings he has for another man and turns to his gay, older brother...Ryker.
Ryker has always been Max's protector and his guide their entire lives, which has left him feeling uncared for and alone to handle his own life's problems. Ryker craves to be taken care of, he craves the attention and praise of a Master. No one knows the dark desires within him until Angel's Chief of Security, Sebastian 'Bass' Bagatelli, shatters that secret with their first intense encounter.
How will Angel win the heart of the straight firefighter that was tailor-made just for him? Will Max be able to continue denying his feelings for another man? Can Ryker and Bass get through their personal issues to take and receive what they both need from each other? Or will they each give up on a happiness that appears too good to be true?
These men's stories will unravel in a whirlwind of romance, bdsm, revelations, lots of action and very hot sex, co-starring very entertaining supporting characters.
‘Quote from Blue Moon’
"Angel," he moaned.
"Mmmm, baby. You sound so sexy saying my name like that." Angel's voice sounded of raw desire. Max could feel Angel fighting the urge to behave himself and not go too fast with him. However, the bulge he felt pressed against his ass was unmistakable. It was foreign, and it was sexy. It was strange to Max, but also exhilarating.What the fuck am I doing? Fuck!

World renowned chef Prescott Vaughan was at the height of his career. Right before he's to leave for Paris to work alongside his idol, a horrific car accident leaves him completely blind.
His female fiancé leaves him in a state of desperation and depression. He pines for love, companionship, and so happens to find it in the form of his very sexy neighbor. Sexy male neighbor, Dr. Rickson 'Ric' Edwards.
Prescott's not gay - at least he never considered himself gay - until Ric saves him from a date, gone terribly wrong. The two neighbors hit it off quickly and waste no time exploring and learning each other. Things are great until Ric begins to have his doubts about meeting Prescott's many wants.
When Ric insist he and Prescott take a breather, Pres finds himself lonely and lacking again. Enter, male escort and aspiring chef, Blair McKenzie to fill the void.
In the meantime, Ric works on his issues that prohibits him from displaying the love he knows he has for Prescott. When Ric is finally ready and returns to claim Prescott he's not sure that Pres can let go of the sexy, southern, hotness that is Blair McKenzie. After Ric has his own personal encounter with the sinfully sexy man, he can't help but become entranced and crave more as well.
Pres soon realizes that there's no need to choose between his two men, because when all three of them finally come together - grab a cold drink - the heat is going to go all the way up!
This is not your typical gay ménage romance. Everyone is not happy, skipping along, and loving life. These men are at each other’s throats. They live completely separate lives; fuss, cuss, and fight until they all realize exactly what the problem is...too damn much sexual tension.
Quote from You Can See Me:
The Texan inched in even closer, which surprised the hell out of Ric since they were practically nose-to-nose. Ric was smacked in the face with a faint soap and water fragrance that made his eyelids flutter and his own dick jerk to life. Ric’s half-lidded eyes were riveted to the Texan’s plush lips, as he leaned in and whispered directly into Ric’s open mouth. “If you don’t pull your head out of your ass and claim Prescott Vaughan like he wants, I won’t stop until I’ve fucked the sexy strawberry ten ways to Sunday and there’s not a single trace of your existence left in his mind, with or without you he needs love and I was the one there last night to lick his sweet tears when you walked away.”

Detective Cashel 'Cash' Godfrey is big, tattooed and angry so people typically keep their distance. He's fresh out of the police academy, however, no one is looking to partner with the six foot four beast with a huge chip on his shoulder and an inability to trust. When Cash scans the orientation room he wasn't expecting to find sexy hazel eyes locked onto him. Eyes of the handsome Detective Leonidis 'Leo' Day.
Leo is charming, witty, hilariously sarcastic and the only one that can make Cash smile. He’s proud, out and one bad-ass detective.
Together Cash and Leo become the most revered and successful narcotics detectives Atlanta’s ever seen. Able to communicate and understand each other, without even having to voice it, they quickly climb up the promotional ranks.
When Cash saves Leo's life in a raid that turns deadly, Leo begins to see something in the big man that no one else does…something special. But Leo fears he'll never break through the impenetrable wall that protects Cash's heart.
Nothing Special takes the reader through various emotions throughout the richly fulfilling plot that’s full of erotic gay romance, heartache, passion, trials and tribulations, police action scenes, and an intriguing twist that comes to an amazing ending that’s impossible to see coming.

Quote from Nothing Special
“Well a man like Day requires commitment, effort, someone to put in full-time work. You are more of a detached from society kind of guy aren’t you, God? I mean are you up for that type of job to keep him yours?” Johnson smirked and took a sip of his coffee.
“Yeah, I know all about that job, Johnson, because I worked the hell out of it last night.” God stepped in even closer and mock whispered. “But you know what the difference is between me and you and our jobs? I usually quit mine, you end up getting fired. But seriously. You can stop applying with Day, because the position’s been fuckin’ filled.”

I would like to thank Amethyst Daydreams for hosting me on their awesome site right before I go to the RainbowCon in Tampa, Florida to promote my current #1 bestseller on Amazon entitled ‘Nothing Special.’
I write under the name A.E. Via, but I don’t mind anyone calling me Adrienne. I am a fairly new author, but have been an avidly faithful reader of gay romance for almost nine years. It wasn’t until recently that I began to makeup characters of my own and was simmering to get their stories on paper. If I thought I was addicted to m/m before, I’m an absolute fiend now. *smiling* I can’t describe exactly what it is that attracts me so much to m/m and why I’m 99.9% sure I will never cross over genres. I just love the intensity and rawness that two men possess when they come together - to me – there is nothing that compares. I’m completely entranced when I’m reading or writing it.
I’ve only been published since November 2013 and have since had two more novels published through Amira Press Publishing – all three reaching the top five on Amazon’s bestseller charts. The welcome that I’ve received into this beautiful genre by not only the readers but by the authors as well, has been overwhelmingly heartfelt. I absolutely love when a reader contacts me through a social media or by my website and tells me how my book touched them in whatever way…or how they laughed out loud…or smiled broadly at my H.E.A., that by far has been the best part of being a new writer.
I am constantly thinking and writing new characters so please use my links below to follow me and my up and coming work.
The RainbowCon 2014, Tampa, Fl. will be my first author event - and yes – I’m very nervous. I don’t know if I’m more nervous to talk to the readers or to the authors that I’ve grown to love over so many years of reading m/m. *sighs*
I’m sure once the butterflies settle in my stomach, I’ll really enjoy myself. I will not be doing any readings or sitting on any panels – just don’t think I’ve earned that yet – but I look forward to signing my books for the readers and listening to the more established authors and how they made their journey as a writer such a successful one.
