A.E. (Adrienne) Via has been a best-selling author in gay romance for five years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of gay lit for over twenty years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this beautiful genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple of 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 me. 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 play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, I do like to push myself to step out of my comfort zone and explore with different tropes, but I never push myself into a whole other genre. I’m head over heels for gay romance and I have tons of more hot stories to tell.

“Bounty hunting?” His mom said, her eyes widening. “Why do these men have to do such dangerous jobs?”
“It’s an important job. Someone has to do it, Mom. And, from what I hear, Brian’s really good at it.” Sway was only giving them basic information. Everything was still too new with him and Brian to reveal too much.
“I know. I just…”
Sway reached over and took his mom’s hand when her words trailed off. He was always careful when he touched her, mindful of her achy joints. He patted her hand gently. He knew why she was concerned and what she wasn’t able to finish saying. She didn’t want Sway to go through any more heartache. Dangerous jobs could result in dangerous situations that lead to injuries, and heaven forbid… death. They’d had enough heartache to last for the rest of their lives, they didn’t need more. Either of them.
“I think he’s a good guy, mom.”
“You went on a date last night,” Sam accused incredulously, coming into the room, causing everyone turn in his direction. Sam stared at Sway, not caring who was watching. He looked as if he’d just been kicked in the stomach. “I thought you didn’t have time to date.”
Sway didn’t answer. Sam didn’t give him a chance before he scooped up the pile of folded sheets and hurried out of the room. Sway saw the hurt and betrayal in his eyes, even though it was completely unwarranted. He’d never once given Sam any indication that they could have anything. Sway had never even flirted with him, having been honest from the start.
“Give him a chance to cool off.” Tweetie watched the closed door Sam was behind. “Crushes can be hard. Believe me. I know. Had quite a few myself.”
Sway sat back down at Tweetie’s insistence. He knew he’d done nothing wrong, but he still felt bad that Sam was upset. The young man had been through a lot and he still had so much more living to do. Sway didn’t want to be the source of any of his pain.
“In the meantime. Tell us about last night.” Sway’s mom’s eyes brightened.
“Yes. Starting with the juicy parts.” Tweetie inched forward.
“Tweets, for heaven’s sake. Are you looking for a cheap thrill?”
“Naw, Steph. Not a cheap one, honey.” Tweetie reared back laughing as if it was the funniest joke ever. Sway just shook his head. It made his mom laugh so he simply went with it.
“I hate to disappoint you ladies but I have no thrills to report.” Sway shrugged. “We didn’t do any—”
“I knew it! You didn’t get that stuff I told you that you had to—”
Sway hurried and put his hand up, stopping Tweetie at the same time his mom did. They both looked at each other and laughed. “It had nothing to do with lack of materials.” Sway smiled wistfully. “He was a perfect gentleman. He made me dinner and dessert. We talked for a long time, until we fell asleep fully clothed.”
