"We were a unit tonight, moving as one. Even apart, we are deadly, but when combined – we are f**kin’ unstoppable." ~~ God ~~

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.

This story is a part of a series but can stand alone. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has a HEA. There are no multiple pairings in this novel.

Nothing Special by author A.E.Via is the fifth book in the Nothing Special series. This book is not a stand a lone. There are many characters we know and love from the previous books in this book. Also you will understand this story better if you have read the previous books that connection is really vital to this story.
You get to catch up with God and Day. They are still ironing out some problems. Working long hours and trying to balance love is hard for these two.
I loved getting caught back up with my favorite couple. They have a love that is meant to last.
Sean Murphy is also known as Teck. He thinks of Day like his brother. The man got him out of some of the worst situations of his life. He will do anything to protect the team.
Steel all he seems to have done with his life is fight for the good and the innocent. He sees that has been taken from him. Friends he can never get back and his partner killed. He is tired and wants to be left alone. He has turned in his shield and wishes he could just stop caring. He has always lived his life on his terms. Strong character, with a deep past that has left him bruised and hurting.
I liked him very much with Teck. Teck gives him his light back. Teck is dying to prove he is as good as those in the field. He wants to be as tough as everyone else. Steel sees that in Teck. He gives him a chance and really builds a friendship not just a romance with the man.
I really think that fans of this series will LOVE this book. We catch up with old friends, and we meet some new ones. If you love this series I really highly suggest you pick up this book. Plus you have to get to know Teck and Steel. They are strong smart men who find a love of a lifetime.
