Prism Book Alliance would like to thank AE Via for taking the time to talk with us today.
Title: Here Comes Trouble (Nothing Special #3)
Author: AE Via
Publisher: Self Published
Cover Artist: Princess SO
Genre/Sub-Genre: Contemporary, Erotica, M/M Romance
Detectives Mark Ruxsberg and Chris Green are very good at their jobs. Being the enforcers for God and Day’s notorious Atlanta PD Narcotics Task Force causes the crazy duo to get into more trouble than they can often get out of. The pair never misses out on an opportunity to drive their Lieutenants crazy with their dangerous, reckless, and costly stunts, landing them in the hot seat in front God… often.
Ruxs and Green love their jobs and they don’t mind the very demanding schedule that leaves them little time for socializing or dating. It was fine with them, they enjoyed hanging out with each other anyway.
However, most of the men in their close circle of friends and colleagues are pairing off and settling down. God has Day, Ro has Johnson, and their Sergeant Syn has Furious.
For the past several years, Ruxs has only sought out the advice and company of one person, his partner and best friend Green, and vice versa. Both of these alpha males are presumed straight, but neither can deny the heat that’s building in their once ‘just friends’ relationship.
It’s so nice to be back on Prism Book again. Thank you Brandi for hosting me, love. I appreciate it.
And thank you out there for showing up today to see the new covers for my two new releases coming on November 28th! Black Friday! The biggest shopping day in the country and the start of the countdown to Christmas. So when you’re out at the crack of dawn trying to catch the doorbuster sells, why don’t you take a second out to one-click a couple gifts for yourself too.
For the past couple months I’ve been working on the next installment to my bestselling series ‘Nothing Special.’ The third installment is entitled ‘Here Comes Trouble,’ and just as the title suggest… the new detectives introduced in this book are full of mischief, mayhem, smart-ass comments and all around take-no-bullshit bravado. The perfect qualifications for the enforcers of God and Day’s Narcotics Task Force.
I won’t repeat the blurb here, but I will say that the story is compelling, and full of twist and turns that keep you riveted to the pages. It’s not just another cop story about trying to catch drug dealers. This story is about the fast-changing relationship between two best friends/ partners that happen to be cops. So while Ruxs and Green are burning up the streets of Atlanta, their feelings and thoughts are also sizzling behind closed doors.
This story is action-packed. And I immediately start you out, right smack dab in the middle of the boys doing what they do best… stirring up trouble in the city of Atlanta. So the book sucks you in from the very beginning.
To my already ‘Nothing Special’ fans, you are going to enjoy getting plenty more of God, Day, Syn, Furi and Ro in ‘Here Comes Trouble’. And as a nice little surprise, we’re welcoming back a couple of all-grown-up characters from the first installment.
Ahem….. I’m not quite done!!!!!!!
Like I mentioned earlier, treat yourself to TWO purchases. Because I’m also revealing the cover to my revised and re-edited first installment of this series. The badass couple that started it all. God and Day are back again with a shiny new front and an added 6,000+ words to their already awesome story! If you’ve already read Nothing Special – all the juicy stuff is still there, I promise. But if you haven’t… new readers will have the original sexiness of my stunning alphas, plus a lot more. Trust me, God and Day fans, if you’ve already read their story, you don’t want to miss a very smoking scene that’s been added. And in the spirit of Black Friday sales day. I’m dropping the price of Nothing Special down to a bargain price you can’t beat! So enjoy!
FYI: Although ‘Nothing Special’ is a series, EACH STORY CAN STANDALONE OR BE READ OUT OF ORDER.
I hope you enjoy them! Don’t forget to drop me a line after you read it.
Hugs and Happy Reading
Ruxs and Green watched Day move about in the office, not bothering to look in their direction. It was unnerving them to say the least. It was like the calm before the storm.
The door to the office flew open, hitting the desk behind it so hard, Ruxs was amazed the damn glass didn’t shatter. God. The storm was here. The IT guys turned away from their many monitors and prepared for the show. Even a few of the officers in the bullpen rose up from their desk to look through the glass that separated their offices. Ruxs had an urge to close all the blinds. Nosey fuckers.
God leveled a hard look at them that had him and Green both yanking their boots off their desk and sitting up straight. God’s long hair was pulled back in its usual tight ponytail. His gold badge hung from his neck resting between his two holstered chrome and gold Desert Eagles. His green eyes gleamed with his fury. Fuck he was really mad. He pointed at them while closing the large distance between them in only a few long strides.
“You two! What’s your fuckin’ job titles?” God’s voice was deep and when he yelled, it sounded like thunder. “Speak the fuck up! What’s your job title?”
Ruxs mumbled. “Tactical extract -”
God slammed his huge hands on their desk before Ruxs could finish, sending a few papers flying onto the floor. “That’s right! Tactical Extraction Specialist!” God’s voice boomed in his deep, southern accent as he towered over them and Ruxs felt extremely uncomfortable sitting there. He wasn’t in danger per se. God would never put his hands on anyone, but it didn’t mean he couldn’t invoke fear. He continued. “What’s your fuckin’ job description?”
Ruxs and Green looked back and forth between each other. It was a bullshit title along with a bullshit job description. Everyone knew it. God and Day made it up so that Ruxs and Green could get on the task force. The only skills they mastered was hand-to-hand combat. They weren’t IT, special weapons, demolitions, or psch, like Ro and Day. Their specialty was beating the shit out of people. That kept God from having to be on the streets all the time. He’d send them to do his enforcing. Drug dealers and addicts didn’t always come willingly. They were good at extracting. But there positions still had to be justified – taxpayers’ dollars well spent, and all.
“Tactical! Tactical!” God shouted. “Means carefully planned, so that it’s done with subtlety and finesse.” God yanked the file that was in Day’s hand and opened it. “Not running through the streets like crazy people! Barreling over a man on a bike and almost killing him. Slamming into a city bus full of passengers. Damn near killing an old lady! And for what? For some strung-out, unreliable, crack-head informant! Goddamnit!”
Day stepped closer and put a calming hand on God’s back. The man looked like he was going to burst a blood vessel. Ruxs and Green had been in the hot seat so many times, that they no longer bothered to argue. They just let their LTs have their rant, then they went back out on the streets and did what they do. Because honestly. Out of the twenty men on their task force. They were the ones that secured the information. So without them. There wouldn’t be shit to bust.
“Come on guys. You know it ain’t’ easy chasing a damn addict. I don’t know where the fuck they get that damn speed from. Shit.” Green shrugged.
Ruxs heard a deep chuckle come from the door. Syn walked in looking amused at their conversation. Their Sergeant was one of the most laid back but somehow ridiculously stern guys he’d ever met. He had no problem handling the task force with a demanding ease. He was their Lieutenant’s right hand man and a badass himself. Everyone’s attention turned back to God when he yelled out again.
“Thirty thousand goddamn dollars. That’s how much you dumb fucks just cost my department.” God slammed the file on their desk and looked at them with an angry, glowing green stare. “It better be fuckin’ worth it. Speak!”
Ruxs didn’t hesitate. He knew what they had was going to really pique God and Day’s interest. “Chainz is getting ready to bring in some serious weight in the next few weeks. He’s dealing with some foreign contacts that will be accompanying the shipment.”
Green sat up closer, finishing Ruxs thought.
“Get this shit. He’s bringing it to Clev Ave., thinking there won’t be any heat watching those houses.”
Ruxs was shaking his head, knowing that God’s ire was settling fast at the thought of making that kind of a huge bust. Finally taking down one of the major drug kings in Atlanta and a few potential foreign drug smugglers. Fuck yeah. This would make national news.
“How sure do you think this informant was?” Syn asked.
Ruxs spoke confidently. “He looked scared. Said that the neighborhood wasn’t feeling this type of activity. It’s like they want Chainz to get stopped on this one. Tommy Tee looked dead serious when he told us. Said that a few of Chainz main carriers been trying to pull back on this deal…like they didn’t want to be a part of it.”
God was stroking his goatee while looking at Day – doing that silent talking shit that they always did. Day shook his head ‘yes’ as if God had actually spoke and turned to Syn. “Syn get on that. Let’s see what pans out.” God and Day walked out of the office, more than likely going to run the information by the Captain.
Syn walked over to the IT detectives and put his hand on each one’s shoulder. “Fellas. Need you to pull up all the houses Chainz has on Cleveland Ave. Try to see if he’s had any renovations done on them, he’s gonna need to bury the weight. Store it in a way that it can’t be damaged. You can’t leave coke and heroin just sitting in a living room for days. It has to have a regulated climate. Check for repairs or new ventilation installations done on any of the houses.”
“Think we can get eyes in there now.” Green asked.
“No. We still don’t have enough for a warrant. Not even a sneak and peek. Not just with the word of a junkie.” Syn propped himself up on Green’s desk. His dark eyes focused on him. “You said Tommy looked afraid.”
Both Ruxs and Green shook their head.
“Said that maybe his own crew wanted Chainz busted.” Syn smirked at them. “Poke around and see who might actually want Chainz stopped. Maybe one of his key players are willing to roll on him.”
Ruxs and Green both stood up. Time to go back to work.
“Do what you guys do.” Syn leveled his own strict glare on them. Everyone knew the Sergeant didn’t take no shorts either. He could come down on them just as hard as the LTs. “Just do it with a lot more tact fellas. Got me? You’re making too much noise out there. You’re the guys that don’t exist, doing the things that didn’t happen, on the orders that nobody gave.”
“Yes, sir.” They said in unison.
