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!

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!! …

 

REVIEW: Wicked Games by Jill Myles

HILARIOUS!

I picked up Wicked Games as more of a joke book.  I needed something to fill some time and I really didn’t care what it was.

With that said, the first 35% of this book had me laughing so hard, that the people around me became annoyed.  Bully for them!

There will be several highlights from the book in this review.  All worthy, I assure you 🙂

This is an erotica / romance book that has plowed head first into a series of Survivor.  Now, I’m not a big fan of that show.  I don’t like politics.  I don’t like manipulation.  I just don’t like any of it.  So, when I realized what this book was going to be about, I totally frowned.  If I open a book, I must finish.  So I’m frowning and whining to myself, when I find myself laughing hysterically.

I have read a lot of books (Shocker, right?), this one took my by surprise.  I expected dirty, sandy sex.  I expected anger and resentment.  I expected the politics and manipulation.  What I didn’t expect, was the comedy.

Anger, lust, romance, deception, sex .. All wrapped into one beautifully packaged story.

Dean:

You know, it’s funny.  All the other girls on the island look like they’d love to spend a few days alone with me.  Abby looks at me as if she’d like to take my axe and gut me like a fish.  Weirdest chick I’ve ever met.  Decent swimmer, though.  Let’s hope she doesn’t totally blow it during the challenges. — Dean Woodall, Day 2.

One of the first challenges between the teams (Teams made up of two), was for Abby and Dean to work together to paint some flags.  One person blind folded.  The other instructing.  That went over real well.  Heh not.  Take a few days of frustrating scowling and toss them into a clueless leading the blind challenge.  What do you get?  Tears of laughter!

“I can’t draw if you don’t tell me–” 

“ABBY, DRAW,” Dean shouted, blasting my ears.  “PICK RED AND DRAW.  QUIT ASKING SO MANY QUESTIONS AND JUST DRAW.” 

I threw down my brush, grabbed the closest pot of paint, and lobbed it over the table at my partner.  I didn’t hear it connect, so I grabbed the next one, and the next one, and heard the satisfying thwacks as they hit Dean (I hoped).

I ripped off my blindfold and glared at my partner.  Mister Perfect Jock was covered in yellow and red paint – quickly dripping to orange.  A streak of blue covered half the table and our flag looked as if the paint had thrown up on it.  He was glaring at me with utter disgust.

“If you yell at me again,” I screamed back, “I’m going to shove that fucking brush down your throat.  Understand?”  (Abby)

I have some other highlights, but they fall a little too much into the spoiler category!  So not happening.

I love this book.  I do.  I recommend this book to ADULTS ONLY.  There is little to no violence (With few lovely paint scenes heh).  The sexual content is tasty moderate.

I have a “Line of the Book” highlighted, but I don’t want to post it.  It’s beautiful and totally rocking awesome!  It is a spoiler and I just can’t do that to you.

~Happy reading!
