REVIEW: Stars & Stripes – A Cut & Run series novel # 6 by Abigail Roux

Snort worthy laughter, sexy cowboys and indiscrete closets, endearing love, Family drama, vengeful tigers and betraying assholes .. oh my!

I am very excited to have had the chance to read this book prior to school starting on Monday!  And what can I say?

PHENOMENAL!  Roux outdoes herself .. Stars & Stripes is an incredible addition to the lives of Zane and Ty.

I found the first 25% of this book extremely comical and an unexpected surprise.

Below is a quick passage from a “Ty’s Family” scene .. I don’t remember what I was drinking, but I think it came out of my nose.  Bushes and pruning ..

“She told me to wait, that I was going to lose a finger.”  Earl looked toward the kitchen and then back at Ty and Deuce.  He snorted.  “I asked her, did she think I was stupid?  Then a  couple of snips later, whack.  Off went the finger.  And you know what that woman said to me?  I said, ‘Mara, you cut my finger off.’ And your mother said to me, ‘Well, Earl, who’s stupid now?'”

This book is a wee bit of a pinball ride.  It’s all over the place .. different states and scenes.  Zane ends up in Texas enduring his mother’s wrath while trying to solve the small problem of his father being shot by trespassers.  No spoiler here .. that’s all I’m going to say on it!

Below is a sexy scene between Garrett and Ty *grin*  I love this shit …

Zane kissed him harder.  “You feel like putting that hat back on and saddling up?”

Ty’s breath hitched, eyes dark and cheeks flushed.  “Oh yeah.  But if you utter the words ‘ride ’em cowboy,’ I’m done.”

Stars & Stripes provides a lot of back story gathering.  Bits and pieces of both our boys’ lives comes together and if it is even possible! .. I now have a more profound appreciation for our lovelies!

I recommend this book to mature adults only!  Strong and deliciously descriptive M/M erotic scenes, bloody betrayals and vicious conflicts!  Oh ya .. All I want .. is to have this entire series on my *glances to my right* bookshelf.  *pout*

Line of the book:

“Oh come on, admit it.  You’re a big bad tough guy who fell in love with an itty bitty kitty.”

Book of the day … Divide and Conquer – A Cut and Run series novel # 4 by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux

Did I mention .. HELL YEA!!!!!!!!!! Wooo hooooooooooooooooo .. and that’s all I have time for .. hello couch .. hello Ty and Zane baby!

Baltimore, Maryland, is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage, and all law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, are catching blame. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners.

Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally—throwing the city, the Bureau, and Ty and Zane’s volatile partnership both in and out of the office into chaos. They’re hip-deep in trouble, trying to track down bombers and bank robbers in the dark with very few clues, and the only way to reach the light at the end of the tunnel together requires Ty and Zane to close their eyes and trust each other to the fiery end.

Afk!! …
