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.”

REVIEW: Armed and Dangerous – A Cut and Run Series # 5 by Abigail Roux

Action packed .. Romance .. Argumentative lovers betrayal .. assassins and innocent boyfriends .. Abigail Roux delivers the exceptional continuation of the couple we have all learned to love .. Garrett and Grady!

Zane Garrett and Ty Grady are by far the most intriguing and entertaining M/M couples ever created!

The Cut and Run series is incredible, regardless of your sexual preferences, this series is quite honestly brilliant, amazing and well worth the time and money.

From the first book in this series, Cut and Run, I have been extremely intrigued with its characters.  With every book, the climactic endings frustrate me to no end as I wait ever so impatiently for the Zane and Ty to take the next step in their relationship.  I find my heart pounds and I hold my breath as each scene unravels with more tension, raging arguments, moments of arousing delicacies and bloodshed.  Funny isn’t it?  How all of those things make the books just come together.

Armed and Dangerous is filled with hilarious moments of conflicts.  Zane and Ty find themselves blessed with the mission to locate a killer, a material witness, and return him to DC.  The book is consumed with two gay couples with extremely contrasting personalities.  As always, Zane and Ty hide their feelings from others … which I can’t stand!  But! … It is what it is.

Finally .. and this isn’t a spoiler .. it’s just almost gagworthy beautiful .. If this was said in any other book I would have rolled my eyes and puked.  Just the fact that Ty said it to Zane .. *girlie moment* almost brought me to tears *sniff*

Ty hugged him and let out the breath he’d been holding in a rush.  “I love you.  I will always be yours, Zane-no matter where I am or where you are.  I promise you that,” he said, the words as serious as Zane had ever heard Ty utter.

Cameron, the killer’s boyfriend and an innocent younger man who is the sweet wheel of the group, is being dragged along as they make their way to DC.  Below is a statement that may seem left field, but coming from Cameron, it was quite shocking!

“And you two, you’re ridiculous!  You’re so busy bitching at each other and trying to look like you don’t care that you don’t realize you’re throwing your lives away waiting for it to be the right time to admit you’re in love.”

I thought I had many more clips from this book saved.  I don’t o.O

It sounds simple and almost boring, but I assure you, this book is AWESOME!  Cut and Run is the *best* book in this series.  Armed and Dangerous is undeniably a close second.

I recommend this book to mature adults in desperate need of excitement, romance and action.  This is a M/M suspense romance.  I cannot give higher praise to Roux other than to say .. I am inspired and reminded the possibilities that life has to offer.

REVIEW: Divide and Conquer – A Cut and Run series novel # 4 by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux

I missed Ty and Zane.  I’ve been looking forward to this novel .. well for only about a month now, but such anticipation!

Ty and Zane have a wonderful relationship that borderline on explosive arguments and delicious intimacy.  Two hotshot FBI agents working together as partners .. in more ways than one.

In the last book, before Ty pushed Zane off of a third story balcony and into a pool, he confessed his love.  Zane has been fighting his feelings for Ty for some time now.  Fighting.  Denying.  Struggling.  As frustrating as it may be to read these books as their relationship progresses and .. back steps, I find myself smiling or murmuring aloud, “Seriously?!”

I won’t spoil this book.  Do I ever?  I try not to!  I can’t help myself.  Below is a string of texts shared between Ty and Zane during important meetings.  Try not smiling at the jokes below:

What’s proper workplace etiquette for picking up computer and tossing it out the window?  Open window first or break glass?

The last 3 calls on my phone are for backup and pizza and sex.  In that order.  Can’t decide what that says about me.

What do you call a monkey in a mine field?  A baboom.

If a hunter can shoot a deer with either hand does that make him bambidextrous?

Have you seen eagles catch their prey?  They’re really talonted.

In this book, there are a string of bombings, bank holdup and random chaos.  Unlike the previous books, Divide and Conquer creates little mystery.  There is a psycho nutjob out there bombing buildings and targeting police authority.

This allows for  a lot of character progression and interaction with past friendships.  Grr.  That was unexpected and quite frustrating!  But .. that’s all I can say *grin*

All in all, I love this book!  I’m seriously considering  rereading the other three as my next books this week.  We shall see.

I recommend this book all mature adults!  Strong sexual content (Umm hell and thank you?!) Intensely dramatic and descriptive violence.  Death and disfigurement.  This glorious book is about two hot FBI dudes, Ty and Zane.  They share a fantastic partnership, both IN and OUT of bed.  Just a forewarning to those whom might get their panties in a ruffle 😉

Line of the book:

Promise you’ll scream for me tonight.

~Happy reading!
