Cut & Run is one of my favorite series’ of all time and for it to come to an end was a bit bittersweet because I loved Ty and Zane and with their own story coming to an end feels like the ending of a new era – or maybe I’m just being overly dramatic.
So off to the final installment of the series called Crash & Burn. The most awaited wedding of Tyler Grady and Zane Garrett is finally happening here plus a ton of complications to go with and the author trying to tie up every loose ends.
I just have four main criticism about this last installment of the ever-so-thrilling and wonderful Cut & Run series.
The first one would be about Zane’s lack of POV. He doesn’t feel that present in the story. I loved how they finally tie the knot but after that – I just lost him along the way.
Speaking of being present, this ninth series was a bit like the previous installment where there’s just too much of fucking Nick O’Flaherty. He just became my most disliked character in this series to be honest.
The other thing that bothers me and also involves the self-absorbed Nick was Kelly’s dwindling characterization. Was he really a part of the Sidewinder or was it just my imagination all throughout the series? God, he became such a weakling since he hooked up with Nick.
The last thing that kinda ticks me off was how the author tried to connect everything. I mean does she really find the need to fill every loop-hole? It just felt forced and over the top at times.
I know what I’m saying may sound too critical but hey, at the end of the day I’m still a fan of Ty and Zane and I loved these boys. Although I’m sad that this would be the end of their own series, I’m still happy that they finally got their own happy-ever-after. I’m surely going to miss them and they’re probably be the only reason I’ll read more from the Sidewinder series.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
