Sergeant Corbin ‘Syn’ Sydney had dedicated his life to becoming the best detective. So when he heard there was an opening on the notorious Atlanta Narcotics Task Force, he jumped at the chance. But, what he wasn’t ready for was realizing just how lonely he’d made himself, when he observed the loving and dedicated relationship between the two men he served under: Lieutenant Cashel ‘God’ Godfrey and Lieutenant Leonidis Day.
Syn prepared himself to accept his lonely fate until he walked into a small pub and met the long-haired, tattooed bartender, Furious Barkley. Before Syn can even understand why, he’s overcome with feelings he barely recognizes: passion, yearning, craving. And if the dark, lustful gazes are anything to go by, Furious might be feeling the same things for him.
Just two thing needs to happen before Syn and Furi can give each other what’s been missing from their lives for so long… Syn needs to find the evidence that proves Furi’s innocence of murder, as well as protect him from a past that refuses to let go.
God, Day, Ronowski, and Johnson are still as entertaining as ever…
You’ll swoon over God’s massive take-charge attitude…
You’ll laugh hysterically at Day’s never-ending wit…
You’ll fall in love with Furious’ mysterious, sexy demeanor…
You’ll embrace Syn…

Excerpt From Embracing His Syn
“Uh oh. Stranger danger.”
Syn looked behind him but no one was there.
“I mean you. You just gonna stand there and stare, man?” Furious raised his head and turned slowly, pinning Syn with a hot glance.
“Yeah. I know your name, you told me already.” Furious cut him off. “Your cologne will give you away every time.”
Syn stepped a little closer. “Does it smell that bad?”
“Nope. Smells that good,” he said on an exhale of smoke.
Syn unintentionally let a small smile creep up on him. Now that he had approached Furi, he was at a complete loss as to what to say or do. He had absolutely no idea why he was approaching this man … any man. Furious’ eyes were as dark as night, his eyelashes dark and long, just brushing his cheek when he looked down. Syn looked his fill, while Furious watched him curiously.
“I like your ink,” Syn blurted out, cringing a bit when it came out a little louder than he planned. “The stars are pretty cool.”
Furious took a deep inhale of his cigarette, blew the smoke out through his nose and flicked the butt into the street. He rose up off the back of the bench standing to his full height, perhaps six-one. “You know what people assume about a person when they have star tattoos, don’t you?” Furious held his eye contact.
“I’ve heard some things. Not one to believe everything I hear though.”
“Is that right?”
Syn scrunched his eyebrows not knowing where Furious was going with this – hell, where he was going with this.
“You waiting on the bus?”
“You got it, genius. How’d you ever guess that?”
“You’re a real smart ass … and the name’s Syn. I thought I’d keep you company while you wait … maybe even offer you a ride.” Syn’s face was tight as he spoke. Why the hell did everyone have to be so fucking sarcastic all the time?
“Oh really.” Furious tucked his ear buds inside his jacket and ran his hand through his hair. “Why the hell would you offer me a ride?”
“Why wouldn’t I? You obviously need one. I’m just trying to be friendly.” Syn stepped closer and he heard a slight catch in Furious’ breath.
“I’m good, man. I got a ride.”
Syn turned when he heard the diesel engine of the MARTA bus pulling over to stop.
“I could drop you off, it’s no big deal.” Syn shrugged as if it really didn’t matter. Oh, but it did.
Why the hell am I trying so hard?
“I’m good. Besides, I don’t ride with strangers.”
The bus’s air brakes were loud as it came to a stop and the automatic doors opened.
“Say it,” Syn snapped suddenly.
Furious turned to look at him from the stairs of the bus. “Say what?”
“My name, damnit.”
“Why?” Furious almost whispered.
“Because, I want to hear it from your mouth.” Syn’s voice had gone gravelly. He was being honest. He did want to hear it. Now. Later. And ten octaves higher ricocheting off his bedroom walls. Hell.
“No,” Furious replied, turned, and got on the bus.
For some reason, Syn watched as his new, enigmatic friend paid his fare and settled himself in the back on the far side of the bus. Furious never looked in his direction, but Syn kept hoping he would as the driver pulled the large vehicle back into traffic.
