I’m pretty sure most of you guys who love reading books have your favorite characters that you somehow hold dearly in your literary hearts, right? This was the case for me after reading Cut & Run. In case you haven’t heard about it, Cut & Run is a romance/adventure novel that involves two male FBI agents who both have dark histories and were partnered together to solve a serial-killing spree case in New York. This installment was co-authored by Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban.
A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case. Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He’s cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he’s paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it’s hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliche: total opposites, good cop-bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer. Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again – this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer’s knife.” [source]
I got this book just this month, and I thought I’d give it a try. I was very surprised to find myself enjoying every bit of it. It’s actually quite good. It’s an M/M romance novel with the right punch of action, comedy and dear old love. I just love the characterization of both guys! Both Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are unbelievably dreamy! They are brave, witty, funny, vulnerable, and charming! You see, it’s fun when a book does that to you. It connects you with the character, and you root for them. I got hooked on both protagonists and promised myself to buy copies of the succeeding books, which I did! like all eight of them, including the newly released eighth book (Ball & Chain). As of this posting, I have actually read the rest of the series in less than two weeks! Can you even believe that? I’m like fangirling here and obsessing; it’s almost ridiculous! LOL [Reviews of the succeeding books will follow]. Cut & Run will leave you breathless (one way or another), awwwee-ing, and falling for these two opposite, uber-adorable guys for a partner. Please, you have to read the book.
