Audiobook Review: Nothing Special V (Nothing Special #5) by A.E. Via

Atlanta's notorious narcotics task force is at it again. They are stronger, bigger, and better than ever. Especially when a city councilman sends RECON Marine, Edwin Steele - who’s been blacklisted from his Oakland department - to join the team. God and Day weren't recruiting. They have a lot on their plates, like the fact they're supposed to be getting married soon. They don't have the time or the patience to integrate a decorated war hero with a slight chip on his shoulder into their well-oiled machine.

A hothead that's uncontrollable and terrible with authority… but wasn’t that their team motto?

Steele was ready to hang up his shield. He was done fighting with bigoted bastards that couldn't respect the job. He was good at fighting; he just needed the right team to fight with. When his uncle - City Councilman, Rasmus Steele - shows him a video of God's team in action, he knows right away, it's where his nephew belongs in order to restore his faith.

Steele pointed to the driver, a behemoth of a man wielding those massive firearms like a true beast… like a soldier. “And him. Who the hell is he?”

“That’s your new boss. Lieutenant Cashel Godfrey… they call him… God.”

Steele was skeptical about his new placement, but when he meets God's technology specialist/computer genius, “Tech,” he's willing to give it his all, and he definitely shows and proves.

Tech is stunning. His sweater vest and khakis, a stark contrast to the blue-jeaned roughnecks he works with. A beautiful sheep amongst the wolves. Steel thinks there's no way the brilliant man would be interested in a hardhead like him, but Tech has a few badass hidden talents of his own and manages to fool him... fool all of them.

Oh my goodness, it is so long since I read the first few Nothing Special books, that I decided to treat myself to a re-read and I was not disappointed! These guys are the absolute best.

No-one writes alpha male law enforcement officers like AE Via and I adore the huge powerful bad asses and the men they love. The fact that the entire squad is hot and happy is such an escape from the reality of life at the end of 2019 that I adored this new book too.

Our main men are new-boy Steele, a decorated marine and Tech, the genius behind the scenes brains behind God and Day’s squad who wants to go in the field and has been secretly training. I was almost rubbing my hands together with glee to this match up.

So the bad guys are as awful as ever, but God and Day and the crew are at their best to clean up the streets of Atlanta. The guys are so hot together, and the emotional development goes alongside their sizzling chemistry. It is a wonderful addition to the series.

The audio is as stellar as we have come to expect from Aiden Snow. The characterisation is superb and I was swept along so powerfully by the narration.

Highly recommended!

I received a free copy of the audio book in exchange for an honest review.
