Now they're assigned to impersonate two members of an international smuggling ring-an out-and-proud married couple-on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. As their boss says, surely they'd rather kiss each other than be shot at, and he has no idea how right he is. Portraying the wealthy criminals requires a particular change in attitude from Ty and Zane while dealing with the frustrating waiting game of their assignment. As it begins to affect how they treat each other in private, Ty and Zane realize there's more to being partners than watching each other's backs, and when the case takes an unexpected turn and threatens Ty's life, Ty and Zane will have to navigate seas of white lies and stormy secrets, including some of their own....

    My favorite of the far!A few reasons why I ♥ Ty:♥ He loves Zane♥ He can play the sex kitten bottom when he wants to♥ He can kick Zane's ass when he needs to♥ He's a Saints fan♥ He can remain calm and stoic in life or death situations A few reasons why I ♥ Zane:♥ He's addicted to Ty♥ He's possessive of Ty♥ He's afraid of falling...♥ He's a closet romantic♥ He's awesome at poker A few reasons why I ♥ this book:♥ It's fast paced♥ Ty & Zane are becoming more comfortable with each other; sharing, trusting and attached ♥ It has many sweet sexy and hot smexy scenes♥ There's more romance and their partnership/relationship has become more than just fucking and getting off♥ I was so wrapped up in the romance I wasn't even trying to figure out the mystery. Some specifics of the case were quite outrageous but I loved this story too much to be bothered I think real life should leave me alone and let me devote my time solely to Ty & Zane!! 5 Stars all the way from me!

    I finished the bookAnd I want to read it againAnd againAnd again 100 freaking stars for this!!These books just keep getting better and better The story in this one was excellent! Ty and Zane go undercover, posing as a married coupleThat first few chapters had me giggling all over, they were soooo funny, with Ty and Zane going on their make-oversJust awsome! Then when they came on the cruise, oh that was just wonderfull! They had the chance to act affectionate to each other whenever they felt like it, and considering they didn't act like that before, it was kinda weird for them, but swoony for meI LOVED every single scene with them hugging, touching, making any kind of contactit was so sweet, I was melting throughout the book The sex was bombastic! Yes like the song ahahahaha I mean WOW. Hottest so farTy was incredibly cute most of the time, he came to terms that he's in love with Zane, but it's pretty hard on him, because he knows Zane doesn't return the feelings (oh Zane when will you see the light man??) I wonder what will happen with the necklace??? When will he give it to him???The ending I couldn't believe it! I was squeeling all the time, it was so sweet and swoony and I was so glad and, and, and I don't know, I'm just like this now - I want more!!! Can't wait to start the next book

    This one sort of ended on a bit of fizzle for me. Was expecting a bit more to happen! Ah, well. Still a great read. Boys are undercover. LOL, when they find out what the job entails.ZANETY“He tightened his arms, not wanting Ty to move away. “It’s more than just fucking around now,” he said. “Isn’t it?” He made sure the tone of his voice emphasized that it wasn’t really a question. Ty was motionless in response. He didn’t even seem to be breathing. The silence stretched on, edging toward tension. Finally, he let out his breath quietly and lowered his head. “No,” he lied blithely, just as he’d done in a hotel in New York City over a year ago. Zane chuckled. A classic Grady response, and definitely the one he preferred to hear. A “yes” just might have given him a heart attack. He held Ty close. “You owe me.” “Owe you?” Ty repeated in a rough, questioning voice as Zane felt his heartbeat begin to speed up. “Mm hmm. How I’ve wanted you,” Zane breathed. “It scares the hell out of me.” “I know,” Ty murmured as he turned in place and nuzzled against Zane’s neck.”One minute I am thinking that Ty is the more vulnerable in the relationship. The next minute I am thinking it is Zane. They are so cute. Love them.Love that she mentions Talisker whiskey from Skye. Was lucky to visit there two years ago. Beautiful place. Didn't imbibe the whiskey. Left that to Himself. Off to the Isle of Arran over the Easter!"You're going to make me fuck you, aren't you?""Walking contradiction, ain't I?"I'm wondering now should I take a break or just continue with these sexy guys.Ty Grady was such an egotistical bastard, yet somehow he turned Zane on like no one else ever had.

    Cross-posted at Shelf Inflicted and at Outlaw Reviews I’ve read lots of books that are parts of series. Though I’ve enjoyed many of them, I find it difficult to complete an entire series. Sometimes the series is too long, or too much time passes between books that I pick up other books and lose interest. Sometimes the plots and structure are too formulaic and the characters show little development. Sometimes the story and characters are moving in a direction not to my liking.So far, I’m really enjoying this series featuring FBI agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett. The stories are fun, entertaining, suspenseful, sexy, and full of emotion. I’m tempted to read one book after the other, but feel maximum enjoyment will best be achieved by pacing myself. That way, I won’t tire of the characters, the writing style, or notice little inconsistencies. One of the things I really enjoy is the slow buildup of Ty’s and Zane’s relationship. As partners, they work effectively together and have a high level of trust. On the personal side, however, both men have secrets and issues best not explored. There is no question the guys are in love. Their actions show it, even if the words are not forthcoming. “Falling in love or just plain falling: they were both terrifying at any speed.”An undercover assignment on a luxury Caribbean cruise ship gives Ty and Zane the perfect opportunity to explore their feelings while masquerading as Corbin and Del Porter, a married couple involved in the theft of numerous high-end and rare artworks. It was fun seeing Ty and Zane wear fake wedding bands and change their hairstyle, clothing and mannerisms to create a convincing cover for themselves while gathering information about Corbin and Del’s contacts. It is Corbin (Zane) who is the “brains” of the operation while Del (Ty) is there to soak up the rays and be an attractive companion. Ty and Zane get into their roles so successfully that they have a hard time distinguishing between playacting and their own feelings. As in the last two books, there is tension, danger, sizzling romance, and relationship growth. While Ty is more open about his feelings in this story, Zane is still reticent. I hope future installments provide more insight into Zane’s past. I’m officially hooked on Ty and Zane and looking forward to more of their adventures. Thanks to Dani from Bookie Nookie's Erotic Lending Group for lending this to me.

    5 StarsThis story was fun - even with all the life-threatening situations Ty and Zane faced, which were plentiful and intense. There has always been a certain level of humour in this series, particularly in regards to Ty and Zane's mutual banter, but the funny was elevated here because of the settings and situations the guys found themselves in, and I greatly appreciated the reprieve from all things broody and violent. The whole secret lovers going undercover as real lovers thing really worked for me, too. Not to mention that the guys are finally showing a lot more outward emotion towards each other, regardless of the fact it's initially a necessity for work. What was my favourite part, you ask? Well...the sex scenes in this story were off the charts hot and tender, and those alone would make this story a worthwhile read, but it was Ty's love confession (which was timed to perfection!) that had me swooning all over the place. *sigh***********************************Re-read: November, 2017This is one of those book series in which a re-read has served to help me absorb so many more little details and glean nuggets of information that I may have missed or overlooked the first time around. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, isn't it!? I remember originally getting frustrated at Ty and Zane and how long it took them to acknowledge/admit the depth of their feelings for one another, but now I get it - I so get it - and I wouldn't want their relationship to develop in any other way. Watching their slow-burn romance unfold is a true thing of beauty; it's hard earned, by them and by us as readers, which makes it all the more worthwhile.

    4.5 Stars!This one was definitely my favorite of the series so far. Enjoyed the plot, the setting.....loved that there was more development of Ty and Zanes relationship. Less near death moments for these too. Ty really put himself out there, now I want to see Zane do the same thing!

    The Cut & Run series takes to the high seas and I'm struggling not to make a "love boat" reference!(All Spoilers are Hidden) Ty & Zane take their first major assignment since the Tri-State Case: Go undercover, impersonating an "out and proud" married couple who are involved in an international smuggling ring... “Now understand: this may put you both in a few uncomfortable situations,” McCoy went on sincerely. “But you've both got UC experience, and I’m sure you’d both rather have to kiss each other than be shot at,” he joked. Ty cleared his throat and tried to restrain a smile. It should have been a walk in the park - gathering information while enjoying themselves (and each other) on a two-week Caribbean Christmas Cruise... Unfortunately, nothing ever comes easy for our favorite Special Agents...I have noted in previous reviews that there is a cinematic quality to this series. It has a rhythm which sucks you in quickly and keeps you interested from beginning to end. Fish & Chips was particularly outstanding in this arena, and established itself as my favorite book in the series so far.ZANE GARRETTFBI Special Agent, undercover as Corbin Porter"I wish I was what you believe," he whispered. "I wish I was what you need me to be."TY GRADYFBI Special Agent, undercover as Del Porter"Zane," he said hoarsely. Then he stopped and looked down again quickly before meeting Zane's eyes [...] with determination. "You're everything I need you to be," he whispered. The case necessitated the usually guarded partners being openly affectionate in public. It was easy for the line between reality and their undercover roles become blurred. He wondered if it was for show or if it was real. Zane hated that this case was forcing him to ask himself that over and over. The masks they were wearing for the case allowed them to be more honest with each other than they had ever allowed themselves to be. It made for some very entertaining moments... Add to that the following:Impersonating suspects they know practically nothing about,more alone time than they know what to do with,extreme makeovers, tramp stamps, sex toys, conspicuously absent FBI backup,a laundry list of "unknowns",old habits dying hard,& murder attempts....It's a hell of an entertaining combination!I'm not going to lie... With Ty & Zane's track record I was expecting some combination of:ANDLet's face it; they have a bit of a reputation for attracting near death experiences... While there was an abundance of action and suspense, Fish & Chips was much more focused on the romance building between Ty & Zane.Forced to stick to the itinerary of a married couple, the partners had no choice but to spend some quality time together. And while that certainly translated to more steam in this book, it also meant that they finally got a chance to TALK... That was the best bit of all...A NOTICE TO THE DETRACTORS OF THIS BOOK:I hear your complaints, allow me to address them...Was the case a little outlandish? Yes.Was it awfully convenient? Yes.Was everything completely plausible? Probably not.However! I don't think you're asking the right questions...Is this Fiction? Yes.Is this book infinitely entertaining? Hell Yes.I don't care to do a little willful suspension of disbelief... I'm all for it. Fiction is fiction. I'd rather have a badass plot-line with a touching romance than a bland but factual story line. Some free advice: If you're especially concerned with your books being factual, stick with reading non-fiction.

    Ok here it goes...Ty and Zane are assigned on another case.... honestly don't care... horrible I know, but I don't read them because of their cases anymore (like I ever did), no no no no no.... I read them because of them! Because of their conversations, their kisses, their little gentle touches, their lust for each other and of course let us not forget about their hot sex!Now let me confess something... their every scene, whether verbal or physical has made me have... *cough*Their assignment: pretend to be a married gay couple... enough said... yep that was funny :)They had to get into their roles and boy they did! Ty was acting a submissive one while Zane the alpha possessive one! After that I love Zane even more!!!! Both of them using this roles to say/do things they wouldn't normally say/do to each other!(view spoiler)["Care to help me get into character?" Ty whispered with a mischievous smile.Zane hummed slightly and pulled Ty flush against him. "What kind of help do you need?""Doesn't seem like you need much practice. What's gotten into you?" Zane murmured as he dragged his lips along Ty's exposed throat. He unfastened Ty's pants and started pushing them down over his hips."Nothing, yet," Ty answered with a slow grin. "That's your job," he said softly, his breath gusting across Zane's cheek."You are mine," he asserted in that sharpened, confident-sounding drawl. "I know it; you know it. And so will anyone else who looks at you.""I suppose what I really like is seeing people covet you and knowing you're mine." (hide spoiler)]OMG The POOL SCENE!!!! *drooling*(view spoiler)["You are skating on thin ice.""You plan to punish me somehow?" he asked in the most innocent voice he could muster. The accent actually helped with that."Oh, I think I can come up with something suitably chastising," Zane said darkly. His voice was dropping closer toward a growl."If it doesn't involve me on my knees in some fashion I shall be wildly disappointed""So your plan is to liquor me up, get me all sweaty and worked up, then take me back to the cabin?" Ty asked him, his tone placid."Oh, it may not have been my plan before, but it sure as hell is now," Zane agreed wholeheartedly. (hide spoiler)]Tys SHOW for Zane!!!! Now seriously how am I suppose to function after reading that?!?!?! That shit is burned in my brain!!!! And it's on repeat all the time!!!!"You ever wanna get f*cked hard, now you know what to do to get it."And then it keeps coming again!!! After admitting both there isn't anybody else for long time... please lord have mercy on me!!!! PLEASE CALL THE FIRE-DEPARTMENT TO COME AND AIM THEIR HOSES ON ME TO TURN THAT FIRE BURNING INSIDE ME OFF!Their pillow talk is so funny and so cute and they are so f*cking adorable!(view spoiler)["Your ass is your best feature," Zane corrected."What? You want me to say something else? Something poetic? Like your flashing eyes? Or your full, pouty lips?""My sparkling personality," Ty provided cheekily."Your insatiable sex drive,""That's partly your fault," Ty accused.Zane grinned. "I'll take the blame," he said. "If you tell me my best feature.""That's easy," Ty answered. "Your partner," he said cheekily" (hide spoiler)]And then finally! Those three little words... At least one of them found the courage... So shy and so scared.... I was BURSTING WITH HAPPINESS!!! And officially I'm f*cked... addicted... there's no turning back any more! I'm marked with Ty and Zane forever and boy I like it!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    "Let your love be like the misty rains, coming softly, but flooding the river."- Malagasy Proverb -4 1/2 stars.Fish & Chips is book 3 in the Cut & Run series. After their mountain disaster, Ty and Zane are back on the job. They’re assigned to impersonate Del (Ty) and Corbin (Zane) Porter. Del and Corbin Porter are gay and married, and they are members of an international smuggling ring. Ty and Zane are going on a merry Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. As the story unfolds, Ty and Zane have to deal with a few incidents, and they have to realize that there’s just more to being partners than watching each other’s backs.After Ty and Zane beat the hell out of each other in the gym (would anyone expect anything else??)...their boss reveals the following:[...]”And Grady, we’ll be needing you to make just a your appearance before you go,” he said as he studied Ty critically.“What the hell are you talking about, McCoy? It’s not like he can gain fifty pounds overnight,” Zane said crossly.“Nothing like that. Some hot wax and a little bleach, and he’ll be set,” McCoy continued, barely keeping himself from laughing now.“Hot wax?” Ty asked in alarm. He heard Zane stifle a snort.“Del Porter is what you would call...arm candy, McCoy drawled with a smirk.“Oh hell,” Zane muttered, leaning back, rubbing his hand over his face, and shifting in his chair uncomfortably. Ty glanced at him, not following.“I see that Garrett has figured it out,” McCoy said, his voice nearly bubbly. Ty shook his head in confusion.“I didn’t mention that?” McCoy asked in feigned innocence as he flipped through his notes as if he needed to check his information. “Corbin and Del Porter aren’t brothers, gentlemen. They’re lovers. Legally married, in fact.” He reached out and placed two silver rings on the desk in front of them. “Go ahead and put those on,” he instructed. Zane went totally still, his eyes locked on the jewelry. Then his chin rose as his gaze shifted to McCoy. “Are you sure this is necessary?” he asked flatly.[...]I liked Fish & Chips. Ty and Zane achieved to a new level in their 'relationship' – a new level of trust, intimacy, and understanding. They had to deal with a few emotional issues. I’m not absolutely sure anymore, but I think it was about 60 % into the story when they had a really serious talk and it was...more profound than before.Ty accepts the fact that he has fallen in love with Zane, while Zane is still in denial, or at least not looking too closely at his own emotions. But it seems that he cares and feels very strongly for Ty. Yeah, men AND feelings – a very difficult topic! When they have a get-together, it’s not only about f*cking anymore, Ty and Zane are showing more emotions and their sexual encounters were never as hot, intense, and passionate as in this story. Gosh, they were heating up the sheets and then some! Again, loved their banter! They’re fighting and insulting each other as always and well, they were making amends afterward. Their relationship grows slowly and steadily and they do mature in every book, that’s for sure. Read another few 'nice' lines:[...]“I would rather deal with Dolce and Gabbana than the guys with guns,” Ty claimed.“It is not Dolce and Gabbana!” Norina cried as she waved her purse threateningly. “White ostrich leather hobo, it is the only one of its kind, and look! Ruined becauswe of your face!”“I’m sorry!” Ty cried helplessly, holding up his hands to ward off more attacks.“Not helping!” Zane hissed at them, and Bianchi managed to calm Norina enough to save Ty another whack over the head with the ostrich leather.[...]Guys, it’s a real pleasure to reading your stories! They are engrossing and very, very entertaining!Enjoy!

    4.5 Stars!!!My boy’s Ty and Zane are back and better than ever! This is probably my favorite book in the series this far.Ty and Zane are back to work, and now they are going undercover last minute on a holiday cruise... the kicker? They are going undercover as an openly married gay couple- Corbin and Del Porter. They have to go through ‘makeovers’ and the whole nine yards. Ty’s transformation is pretty great. Ty and Zane’s relationship was much different in this book than the first two. I loved how openly affectionate they were able to be in public, on the ship etc. I hope eventually we will get to a point where they can be like this ALL of the time! Of course there was some suspense, mystery, etc, and this book was just as hilarious as the first two-“You’re so freaking romantic. I don’t know how I keep my pants on.” But the romance and the sex were stepped up a huge notch! “It’s not very often I could say ‘you can have anything you want, baby’,” Zane practically purred. “But now is one of those times.”Ty smiled serenely, trying to keep the hint of melancholy out of it. He knew Zane meant what he said.“Only thing I want is you,” he whispered.Can you say SWOON! Ah! I just love these two! Ty and Zane were so sweet on each other in this book- I just couldn’t get enough. I felt like book 2 was missing some of the heat, well let me tell you- this one MORE than made up for it! It was HOT! HOT! HOT! I like Zane a lot, but Ty Grady is one of my favorite fictional characters. I just adore him. He is so charming, funny, sweet and sexy! THE BEST part of the book: (view spoiler)[“He sighed heavily and lifted his chin stubbornly, meeting Zane's eyes without flinching. "I didn't just say it to get you to jump. I'm in love with you Zane," he admitted in a calm,clear voice."I have been for a while.”(hide spoiler)] I was so happy at this moment, I was crying tears of joy! So beautiful! With every book, Ty and Zane’s relationship grows and they get more ‘in tune’ with their feelings for each other. Even though someone was after them etc, that part of the story definitely took a back seat to the relationship portion. I can’t wait to see what the next book has in store! Lets sum it up:♥ Hilarious♥ Sweet♥ Sexy♥ HOT ♥ AMAZING! This series is a must read for all m/m lovers! ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    3.5 stars upgraded to solid 4 stars after sleeping over it.this has nothing to do with finding my kindle beneath me when I woke up today morningLiked this one more than the first two books in the series. Though I did find it a bit lacking in action but there were some major headways in the relationship between the MCs, so its all gooey mushy good. Ah Zane's still my fave, he is sooo f##*ed up! :D

    Final rating: 5/5 stars(view spoiler)[He sighed heavily and lifted his chin stubbornly, meeting Zane’s eyes without flinching. “I didn’t say it just to get you to jump. I’m in love with you, Zane,” he admitted in a calm, clear voice. “I have been for a while.”Zane’s eyes widened, and the shock was clear in them. He didn’t try to hide it. That, at least, was telling of the trust they’d built between them. He didn’t hide his emotions from Ty much anymore. No more than Ty did from him. Zane’s lips parted like he was about to say something, but nothing came out as he tipped his head slightly to one side.“You don’t have to say anything,” Ty said quickly. He’d known how Zane would respond, and he’d come to terms with it. He still didn’t want to hear the words, though. He couldn’t meet Zane’s eyes any longer, and he could feel his face warming. He looked down at his hand and turned it over. “I know you don’t….” He shook his head and glanced up at the stark white wall across the way from his cell, starting over. “I know you care about me. That’s all I need. I just figured… we have enough secrets between us,” he continued as he looked back up at Zane and smiled nervously. “Now it’s just one less.”The cascade of emotions across Zane’s face surprised him; Ty didn’t think he’d ever seen Zane look so startled. Zane’s fingers curled into the fencing, and he nodded just slightly. “One less,” he echoed softly, though his lips moved like he was starting to say something else and stopped. Then he restarted. (hide spoiler)]“Why tell me that way?”Ty shrugged one sore shoulder. “Seemed like a good idea at the time,” he answered, embarrassed.“I was pretty much blind, deaf, and scared out of my mind.” Zane admitted. “But I… heard you.”That's it. This series is my official favorite ever! Each sequel gets better and better! I didn't like this book, i freaking LOVED IT!!!! The whole experience was WEIRDLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!I loved the idea for this book, being under an undercover mission pretending to be a gay married couple was so much fun that i loled, and loled, and loled....without stopping. And it sure was awesome to read and see their reactions because of that. And all of the changes they had to go through...yummy ♥Anyway, everything was just awesomely done. I loved how in this book we get to finally understand their feelings to each other. But neither of them knew whether it was the person they were acting to be, or other way around. And so, they confused each other, annoyed each other, scared each other to death, and loved each other more than anything else. Too bad that both of them are scared to admit it -.-“It’s not very often I could say ‘you can have anything you want, baby’,” Zane practically purred. “But now is one of those times.”Ty smiled serenely, trying to keep the hint of melancholy out of it. He knew Zane meant what he said.“Only thing I want is you,” he whispered.► CHARACTERS:♦ Ty: I freaking adore that guy. His new role suited him just fine and yet he didn't want to admit it at first :P But i loved it how he and Zane could just be someone else for a moment and forget everything and enjoy their time together....And Ty seemed to me tamer than he usually is...Which scared Zane and kind of scared me as well :D ♦ Zane:His new role of possessive husband really fit him well. I didn't know whether to laugh or just be amazed because of him. I didn't approve some of his actions, but Ty beat some sense in him later ♥....► OVERALL:pure, pure, L-O-V-E!!!!!!!!► REVIEW(S) RELATED TO THIS BOOK:◉Cut & Run (Cut & Run #1)◉Sticks & Stones (Cut & Run, #2) ◉Fish & Chips (Cut & Run, #3)◉Divide & Conquer (Cut & Run, #4) ◉Warrior's Cross (Cut & Run #4.5) ◉Armed & Dangerous (Cut & Run, #5) ◉ Stars & Stripes (Cut & Run, #6) ◉Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run, #7) ◉ Shock & Awe (Sidewinder, #1; Cut & Run #7.5) ◉Ball & Chain (Cut & Run, #8) ◉Cross & Crown (Sidewinder, #2; Cut & Run #8.5) ◉Crash & Burn (Cut & Run, #9) ◉Part & Parcel (Sidewinder, #3; Cut & Run #9.5)

    4.5 stars. I liked this book best of the series so far, for several reasons. First, I think I've found the right way to read them. You have to be in a kind of zen go-with-the-flow mood. You can't ask why the FBI would consider sending two agents deep undercover and giving them back-up but would not show them pictures of the people (so they don't inadvertently shoot them) or provide any way to identify or contact or even signal distress to that back-up, and the agents unquestioningly accept that as reasonable. Or why the FBI would hide their weapons for passing security and not tell them precisely which weapons and where so they can get at them in a hurry if things go bad from the start or... Zen state, definitely, like watching a James Bond movie.This book is also better written. The POV shifts are fewer and smoother (and perhaps more familiar.) And they suffer no major injuries that are ignored three pages later. The two men finally seem settled into their characters and develop slowly with recognizable differences. (Both are scared of heights, but Zane walks away and Ty jumps off.) The relationship is becoming deeper, more tender and yet still hot. Zane's addictions and the toll they take are given the weight they should carry. Over all, just a wonderful slide deeper into the world of these two men.

    ANOTHER WILD RIDE WITH TY AND ZANE!!!!!!! CINQUE STELLE(Un’altra corsa selvaggia con Ty e Zane… fuck… I think that’s Italian!)What can I say… I just cannot get enough of these guys!!! Utterly addicting!!!!“You can never have too much awesome”-TyThis story has Ty and Zane back to working together as partners after their short mandatory vacation time in Sticks & Stones. They are working out of Baltimore, MD, Ty’s home base, and have been getting quite used to working together, and being together. While both guys are starting to feel more and more dependent on the other, they both still seem to be holding back their feelings, still unsure, and afraid to mess up what they have with each other. Falling in love or just plain falling: they were both terrifying at any speed.True to form, the story opens up with a brutal sparing session between the partners at the FBI training center, where as usual they take it too far…they do seem to really enjoy beating the shit out of each other!!! Strange foreplay for these closet dwellers. It is shortly after that, that they receive their latest assignment. It is an undercover operation, where they must take on the identity of two criminals who have recently been apprehended by the FBI. Corbin Porter and his gay husband Del Porter have recently been arrested, and are being detained by the bureau. They are apparent antiquities dealers who were going to be attending a meeting aboard a luxury cruise ship sailing in the Caribbean. They were to be meeting with several other large players in the industry, and were to be staking out a new acquisition in Tortola. Ty and Zane will be taking on their identities to gather intelligence for the bureau, in order to bring down this illegal smuggling ring. It is an international intelligence operation. Several of the other players are from Italy, and one is apparently Turkish. All are dangerous. And none have met in person. Ty and Zane were not only going to have to alter their appearances to be convincing in this UC operation, but they were also going to be pretending to be openly gay and in love, and convincing enough to not be discovered. Their lives would depend on their performance. They were not happy about this, at first… but it was an intriguing idea to both of them, and allowed them both to experience what an openly gay relationship would be like for them. They would be away on this cruise for two weeks… alone with only one small backup team for emergencies. It would take all of their skills to accomplish their task, impersonating accents, understanding other languages, all while displaying their loving relationship openly and flamboyantly. I just LOVED this storyline. It was a joy to see these guys openly show affection for the other. Both feeling for the first time what an open relationship would be like for them. I think it completely threw them out of their comfort zone, and while they both felt the sting from many judgmental eyes, I think they both realized that it didn’t bother them as much as they thought it would.“So your plan is to liquor me up, get me all sweaty and worked up, then take me back to the cabin?” Ty asked him, his tone placid. “Oh, it may not have been my plan before, but it sure as hell is now,” Zane agreed wholeheartedly. If he had a choice in his night’s companion, he’d much rather have the aroused and pliable Ty from this afternoon than the cranky, fractious man of this evening. “I like it,” Ty said approvingly.I loved seeing their playful acting in the beginning turn into real life tenderness for each other. They both found out that they cared more for each other than either of them previously realized. Ty seems to be falling hard for Zane, but is still fearful of putting his feelings out there. He knows how Zane feels about relationships, and doesn’t want to risk what they have together. At the same time, Zane is quickly realizing his overwhelming dependence on his partner, and his growing feelings towards him, but is also afraid to make the jump. “Zane,” Ty repeated desperately as he stood and pulled Zane closer to the edge before climbing over the rail again. “I love you,” he blurted, grip tightening on Zane’s hand in case he tried to pull away. “Please trust me.”This book was brilliantly put together. It had all of the elements of a suspenseful thriller, with never-ending action, adrenaline sports entwined with covert murder attempts, a mysterious take over scheme, and incredibly hot and frequent sex for our lead characters!!! It also threw in a budding love relationship, and some incredibly tense and emotional scenes dealing with Zane’s alcohol addiction. “I wish I was what you believe,” he whispered. “I wish I was what you need me to be.”Finally, Ty swallowed hard and looked back up. “Zane,” he said hoarsely. Then he stopped and looked down again quickly before meeting Zane’s eyes again with determination. “You’re everything I need you to be,” he whispered.Oh… and did I mention incredibly HOT and FREQUENT SEX!!!! Off the CHARTS!!!! If I wasn’t in love with them before, which I was… I am totally LOST to them now!!!! Oh and the QUOTES...the QUOTES... the QUOTES!!!! SO MANY AWESOME LINES!!!! I'd literally have to include half the book to capture them all!!! BRILLIANT!!! “You’d seriously rather argue credentials than fuck me?” Ty asked with an incredulous laugh.I highly recommend this book…and the series. I am in awe, and completely addicted. I cannot wait to get to the next book!!!!5 STARS!!!!!!Casting:Ty Grady[image error]Zane Garrett[image error]Del Porter[image error]Corbin Porter[image error]

    5 Huge Stars for a very romantic and steamy book about the lovely couple Ty & Zane.I'm in the middle of a large read requests for M/M romances right now. Just a little more than a month ago I read my first romance book about "boys who love boys". Now I'm stuck in this genre and what isn't better than another book about the this two gorgeous boys, Ty and Zane. Ty ~ bent to kiss his shoulder, and then mowed slowly to lean more of his weight against Zane's body and whisper into his ear. "You're so easy."~ "Guess you've got my number," Zane said hoarsely.These "Cut & Run" novels are perhaps the best form of an epic love story. So simple - the looks, the acts, the unspoken feelings and the words - make it to a slow build-up great love story. As a reader, I gasp and my heart knot of fear that the two boys, Ty and Zane, will not find the words and say what needs to be said. To get his partner to understand, that what they have together, is love and not just sex and attraction. In this third book are this both FBI agents on a Christmas cruise to Caribien. They are undercover and are playing a hitch marry gay couples, Mr and Mr Porter. Because the actual couple is completely open about their lifestyle, the boys now get the chance and are expected to cuddle with each other openly and appear as a married couple in love. This part of this story is absolutely wonderful. A total bliss for a born romantic like me. I love that they are holding hands, cuddling and kissing everywhere on the ship. Yum! Their lives should be just as cute always and forever.... Zane / Mr Porter ~ “You are mine,” he asserted in that sharpened, confident-sounding drawl. “I know it; you know it. And so will anyone else who looks at you.” The question of how this two men could live together, in our still quite homophobic world and society, shadows ower the story in this book. Will ever those two men "dare" to go hand in hand and live with each other openly as a couple. Are they prepared to release the latches so far? Is it possible based on the work of the FBI agents. Do they want it?....Like in book 1 and 2, happens a number of nasty incidents around these two agents and I'm on the edge all the time. I know it will be four or five more novels in this series - and both of my heroes will survive - but I'm anyways (yes - stupid and completely illogical) nervous and my heart is pounding.As always, it's a lot of good dialogue, it's funny statements, witty replys, loving words and I'm smiling a lot. It's always quick shifts between full adventure action, wonderful artful dialogue and tender hot love scenes. Meanwhile it's much, that is of importance for the continued love story, which are not said (written) explicit - the reader (me) can create their own image and conclusion - that is what MAKES this a great read for me."You ask because...?"Ty tilted his head slightly, his eyes not leaving Zane's as he considered the question. ”Because there hasn't been anyone but you in a long time. And I don't think there will be," he answered bluntly.~"Good," Zane whispered, ....I have to admit that I sometimes find it difficult to create as much interest to the FBI investigation, the opponents and all the ingenious devices of the adventure elements in these books. For me, this is mostly pleasurable reading about two men and their romance. It's sweet, tender and lot of steamy attraction between the two. The "bedroom scenes" are so tenderness described and are really sexy and hot. It's all just yummy for me.If you, who are reading this review, havn't already understand that I am full of admiration and love for Ty and Zane, the ”Cut & Run" series and this two talented authors, I say it out loud again: I love this!I LIKE - I love!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The two previous books in the series that I read: my review Cut & Run #1 and my review Sticks & Stones #2

    ”REREAD WEEK” (Nov 24, 2012)Awwww…I actually think I liked this better this time. First read, I couldn’t get past how outlandish the whole scenario of the story was. But, being able to look past that (or skim past it, as it were),I enjoyed some of the emotional exchanges between Ty & Zane more. Also, lots and lots of sex! (hubba, hubba!)New Observation: I have always been Team Zane. But, my boy really pissed me off in this book during the reread. On more than a few occasions, I wanted to slap him upside the head. His inner-monologue, bad behavior, and doubts/fears started to wear me down. Step it up, big boy!Original rating: 3.5 starsReread rating: 4 stars*****************************ORIGINAL REVIEW3.5 StarsFINALLY...sheesh. It took 3 full books for Ty and Zane to finally profess their love for one another. Geez...if they dragged this on much longer, I would have seriously started to get annoyed. I like the story of this one. It's a bit too "convenient" of an assignment for them - looking a lot like the gay couple they're supposed to be impersonating. But, it was sweet getting to see Ty and Zane be outwardly affectionate and caring with one another. Again, as in the other books, the tender moments were the best and make you really, really root for these two. *There were a tense series of scenes between Ty and Zane that started at a poker table w/ scotch involved and ended fully clothed in the pool. It was painful...and the emotions felt so real and made my heart feel constricted. I felt real anger, fear, and hurt. Good stuff.*

    Reread 10/8/17My favorite of the first 5 books....until Stars & Stripes was published.One of the best of the series! I couldn't care less that it's a cheesy set up of them pretending to be a gay couple while undercover. It is executed so perfectly for them to finally pull it all to the surface. The affection and the communication in this one was amazing! Perfection! On to the next one with Jewel!~BR reread with Jewel - doing the whole series over from start to finish! ~

    ***4.5 stars for the audiobook version***This was my first audiobook narrated by Sean Crisden and…BOY, WHAT A VOICE!!!I loved the voices he gave the characters, especially Zane’s voice was to die for (like melting chocolate – very yummy!!!), but the Italian and Turkish accents of the side characters were also amazing. The first word that comes to my mind is authentic and I must say, Kudos Mr. Crisden! Very talented!What dampened my pleasure a bit was the recording itself. The sound level was far too low. I should say that I mainly listen to audiobooks when I’m driving and I was sorely tempted to press my ear against the speaker of my car radio more than once to understand what was being said. Well, since this would be quite a bad idea when you don’t want to end in the roadside ditch, I had to turn up the volume so loud that the narration was sometimes a bit distorted. As a positive side effect, it was quite startling when suddenly Zane’s deep voice boomed through the speaker and I was wide awake, which is not the most inverted in the early morning. ;-)Although Fish & Chips is not my favorite in this series, it is, was and always will be a solid five-star-read, nonetheless. Ty & Zane will always be one of my favorite couples and Ty just… rocks.

    4.5 starsWith Fish & Chips we had Ty and Zane going undercover as a married couple on a cruise. Yep all fabulous, makeovers what have you but, i was so excited to see them being a couple out in public, even if they are meant to be portraying other people.I loved watching their feelings and emotions develop in this one. Each wondering if the other was just doing things and saying things as part of their cover or their true feelings. And well of course the sex was hot hot hot! Damn they just had it all going on. I said it before, i will say it again, these two have hot raw emotional sex, and i love it! They have some really hot scenes, but they oh so tender together. I don't know what it is but it feels so raw, tender. I love that they turn their alpha arses on each other and can beat the crap out of one another. And each time it draws more out of what they feel for one another. Built their trust. The notion that they may "love" each other and need each other.The difference i felt in this though was that you really got to see their feelings develop and come to the surface for each other. And as always love their banter and wit.Loved it :)))

    “Now understand: this may put you both in a few uncomfortable situations,” McCoy went on sincerely. “But you've both got UC experience, and I’m sure you’d both rather have to kiss each other than be shot at,” he joked. Ty cleared his throat and tried to restrain a smile.These books just keep getting better and I'm ADDICTED! Shortly after their so-called vacation in West Virginia, Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are back on the job. Their superior in Baltimore, Dan McCoy, assigns them to go on a two-week Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. They're supposed to assume the identities of two people who are part of a smuggling ring and also an out-and-proud married couple, the reason being to gather information about their contacts.In order to play the Porters, Ty & Zane have to alter their appearance and act differently. Ty has to play the role of Del Porter, who's what you would call arm candy and not considered very smart. And man, does he ever assume his part as a submissive! Then we have Zane as Corbin Porter, an arrogant, possessive man, who's the brains of the operation. Upon embarking on the ship with only a small team as back-up, Ty & Zane have to deal with a few unexpected turns of events, while Ty's life, in particular, is in danger.The case allows Ty & Zane to be openly affectionate in public, something they're not used to, but find that they enjoy. It also offers them the possibility of being more honest with each other and act according to deeply buried feelings. Zane gets to be possessive and jealous, while Ty submits to him. The lines between what's done or said for show and what's real become blurry and the partners struggle to understand each other.When I reviewed the first book, I was foolish enough to think I could pick a favorite, but I can't. Ty & Zane work best together and I love them both to death! Words can't express how much their emotional journey throughout this book tugged at my heartstrings. I felt for Zane, while he was struggling with his fears and addictions and trying to overcome his past. And Ty... Jesus, Ty... Going all angsty because of the love for his partner, fearing that his feelings would never be reciprocated. Once again, I was more drawn to their tender moments, but oh my God... The sex was out-of-this-world HOT!“What’s gotten into you?” Zane murmured as he dragged his lips along Ty’s exposed throat. He unfastened Ty’s pants and started pushing them down over his hips. “Nothing, yet,” Ty answered with a slow grin. “That’s your job,” he said softly, his breath gusting across Zane’s cheek.I don't think anything I have to say could do this book and its beautifully real characters justice. It's just brilliant!* * * * *First read: May, 2014Re-read: April, 2015* * * * *My other reviews in the Cut & Run series:will be updated as soon as new books are publishedCut & Run (Cut & Run, #1) - my reviewSticks & Stones (Cut & Run, #2) - my reviewFish & Chips (Cut & Run, #3) - you're reading itDivide & Conquer (Cut & Run, #4) - my reviewArmed & Dangerous (Cut & Run, #5) - my reviewDine & Dash (Cut & Run, #5.5) - my reviewStars & Stripes (Cut & Run, #6) - my reviewTouch & Geaux (Cut & Run, #7) - my reviewBall & Chain (Cut & Run, #8) - my reviewCrash & Burn (Cut & Run, #9) - my reviewMy reviews in the Cut & Run spinoffs:will be updated as soon as new books are publishedWarrior's Cross - my reviewShock & Awe (Sidewinder, #1) - my reviewCross & Crown (Sidewinder, #2) - my reviewImportant note: I highly recommend the books to be read in the following order...will be updated as soon as new books are publishedCut & Run; Sticks & Stones; Fish & Chips; Divide & Conquer; Warrior's Cross; Armed & Dangerous; Dine & Dash; Stars & Stripes; Touch & Geaux; Shock & Awe; Ball & Chain; Cross & Crown; Crash & Burn ...

    Falling in love or just plain falling: they were both terrifying at any speed. Things with Ty and Zane just gets more interesting with every book. They have been assigned to a new case, one that has them pretending to be a married couple on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. Not only will they have to change themselves to fit their pretend profiles, they also have to get used to not hiding their affection for each other.If he were feeling particularly romantic, he might have admitted he sometimes thought of Ty as his compass. But those words weren’t passing his lips. Not today, anyway. Not until he knew why he thought that. Not until it stopped scaring him.I loved this book, especially because it provided Zane and Ty with the freedom of being free to show their affection for each other. The sexy times were just as sexy as always, but I loved that there were a lot more tenderness between them.The unvarnished reality was that he was, and always would be, an alcoholic and drug abuser who hung on by his fingertips every day trying to stay sober and do his job. He squeezed Ty’s hand. “I wish I was what you believe,” he whispered. “I wish I was what you need me to be.”“Zane,” he said hoarsely. Then he stopped and looked down again quickly before meeting Zane’s eyes again with determination. “You’re everything I need you to be,” he whispered.Ty and Zane have become one of my favorite couples. I just love watching these two together, their wonderful banter and seeing how much they care about each other, but also how hard they try to hide their full feelings. Especially Zane who is still dealing with his demons, and too scared to admit that he loves Ty. It was quite an eye-opener to see the effects Zane’s addictions has on him (view spoiler)[when he had to drink in order to maintain his cover (hide spoiler)], and my heart really broke for him, but especially for Ty. I’m really happy that Ty finally admitted his love to Zane, and I hope that Zane will overcome his fears of losing another loved one soon, so that he can admit the truth to himself and to Ty.I’m loving this series more and more with every instalment, and I really can’t wait to read the next book. Seeing the relationship and love between these two grow is just excellent and addictive.

    THE SAGA CONTINUES!After re-reading this, it's still one of my favorites from the lovable series. This seems like the "vacation" Ty & Zane deserved. In here, they were most relaxed since Book 1 and it was joy to read.Of course the draw to this book is still Ty & Zane. And the development of their relationship here is one of my favorites and one that stuck with me. Because finally........I'm not gonna spoil it. Sorry. XD I also loved that Ty turned into a sweet sap here. And I gotta say I think this book set the tone for the entire series, in regards to their relationship.One thing I realized after re-reading it is the plot was weaker than I thought it was. Nevertheless I still liked it though.If you haven't started with this series yet, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND for you to. Every M/M lover has read it already, c'mon!4.25 STARS!OTHER REVIEWS:Cut & RunSticks & Stones

    ~~~Loved, loved, loved this! This book just had all the things I love in a romance. I am already crazy for Ty and Zane so the development of their relationship through a delightfully awkward assignment just really worked for me. The humor, pace and completeness also really worked well for me. One of the things I like best is that although the authors weave a good undercover story the romance is what really shines. Since that is what I'm reading these books for that's what I want and it's just what I got here.As fulfilling a read as this was, it just left me wanting for more. Lot's more.~~~Take a look at my Male/Male Romance Book Blog:

    To say I loved this book is a huge understatement! In this story, Ty and Zane are going undercover as a out and proud married couple, who deal in stolen antiquities. All the players are meeting on a cruise to the Caribbean. Ty is (Del) the pretty arm candy and Zane is Corbin, the tough, intelligent business man. Zane is the lead on this and Ty is told to basically hang at the pool and get a tan and look pretty. While the suspense part of this was interesting and at times left me worried and scared (they kept trying to kill my Ty baby). For me it was about their relationship growing to a new level. Zane still forever analyzing his feelings and dealing with his self doubts. Ty being the type of man to cliff jump into water figures out his feelings for Zane and takes the scary plunge and accepts it. Their undercover roles enable both of them to explore deeper feelings for each other. As Zane explored and examined his role as the self assured and arrogant Corbin, I saw his self esteem rise, he began to accept his deeper feelings for Ty and enjoy letting them bubble to the surface. And I saw how Ty baby (yes he is my Ty baby), grew to enjoy and appreciate Zane taking a more dominant role in parts of their relationship. This story left me dreamy eyed, swooning, happy and warm all over! The intimate moments between them were hot hot hot! (oh my god someone throw some cold water on me hot) And the few times they discussed their feelings and emotions I wanted to burst into tears! I saw a new level of intimacy between them and my heart went all a flutter!At the end of this book like the other two I found myself here....And after i backed out of the window I looked liked this!

    *Finished Buddy Re-read with Melissa and Amanda on March 1/13*Keeps getting better and better *sighs*Zane and Ty are back on the job after what happened on the mountain in the last book. They must go on a Caribbean cruise and usurp an openly gay married couple named Corbin (Zane) and Del (Ty) Porter, who are part of a smuggling ring. Things don't go as planned with someone trying to kill them and get difficult when they cannot locate their back up.I could probably read about Ty and Zane all day and not get bored of those two. With each book I love Ty and Zane more. It was just TO entertaining to watch them be comfortable with each other in public because they could. Ty was funny as always and affectionate with Zane, LOVED IT. Zane had to be alpha and possesive of Ty which I also LOVED. Their relationship has definitely grown in this book because they finally moved on from being friends with benefits to 'more'. I was in a happy haze throughout the book because they couldn't stay away from each other. They kissed alot, hugged alot, touched alot, amongst other things...(which was freaking HOT). They were also learning about each other more. Their trust is growing and solidifying. They were just TOO freaking adorable and still love their banter. I was grinning like an idiot in the ending it was so sweet. Can't wait to read the next because I can't get enough of Ty and Zane.ZaneTY
