Length: 7hrs 31 mins

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 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.


I’m a huge fan of AE Via. Her heroes are big, badass, and bold. The epitome of an alpha male, the men AE writes about are what makes action flicks so much fun to watch and her books are always like reading the screenplay to biggest blockbuster film. Full of action and swoon and witty banter, they’re always a fun rollercoaster ride from beginning to end. Duke and Vaughn in Promises: Part 1 are everything you’d expect from one of her books and hearing the incomparable Aiden Snow bring them to life was all kinds of yummy deliciousness. 

Aiden Snow's deep, rich voice is like gooey caramel. He totally captures the essence of Duke and Vaughn and brings their characters leaping to life. I really enjoyed the way he switches from one to the other so flawlessly and distinctly. It’s not so easy to do, but Snow handles it with ease. From the action scenes to the ones full of emotion, to the hot and steamy sex scenes, Snow is masterful at modulating his voice to fit the situation. 

I loved Promises: Part 1 the first time I read it and listening to Aiden Snow bring his talent to this book was such a treat. Duke, Vaughn and Quick along with the rest of the characters in this series are definitely going to find some new fans and it couldn’t be more well deserved. I can’t wait to listen to Quick and Cayson in Promises: Part 2. I know Aiden Snow will do as great a job bringing them to life as he did Duke and Vaughn!

A.E. Via has been a best-selling author in the beautiful gay romance genre for five years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of gay lit for over fifteen years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple great new up and coming MM authors.

A.E. has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Virginia Wesleyan College that she used to start her own paralegal firm after she graduated in 2008. She spent five years preparing and filing bankruptcy petitions for struggling blue collar workers who couldn’t afford to file with a lawyer. It was a rewarding and satisfying career… but another path called to her. Writing.

A.E.’s writing embodies everything from hopelessly romantic to adventure, to scandalous. Her stories often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.

Now that she’s gotten over her 10 books published hump, she’s kind of known now for her hardcore, play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, she does like to push herself to step out of her comfort zone, exploring different tropes, but she won’t push herself into a whole other genre. She’s head over heels for gay romance and she has tons of more hot stories to tell.

So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
