Cut and Run


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.

My Review

4 stars

This is my first foray into the romance world of M/M and let me tell you, I am so thrilled I started this 
genre with this book. Cut & Run has wonderful characters, great pacing, non-stop action and a sweet 
realistic romance between two strong but very different men. 

Cut & Run is the first book off the series with the same title Cut & Run. There are currently 7 books in 
the series, with the eighth set to be released next year. 
It follows the story of two FBI agents, Ty Grady and Zane Garrett who were forced to worked together 
to solve a series of murders in the tri-state area. One was brash and undisciplined while the other was 
rigid and always in control. Ty and Zane hated each other on sight. Hated each other. 

During their first meeting, you get to see how different they were just by the way they looked. Zane was 
in a snazzy suit, while Ty looked like he just rolled out of bed and threw in the first clothing item he sees. 
That almost exact same scene was replayed in the middle of the book but this time, Ty was in suit. and 
Zane looked unkempt. I thought that was hilarious.  They were different, yes, but they also have a lot of 
things in common and this became apparent throughout the book.

The pacing was great throughout the book. Never a dull moment between those two. I admit, I wasn't 
taken with the mystery that much but that's only because I was really more interested in whether Ty and 
Zane would finally admit their deepening feelings for each other. And when they did, I was like, 'Yay!' 
Although, they had to suffer so much physically as well as emotionally first before that happened. But 
when they did, it was really sweet. 

Overall, I love this story. It has all the right elements I was looking for. I can't get enough of Ty and 
Zane. I will definitely be reading the whole series. Hopefully, by the time the 8th book comes out, I'll be 
finish reading book 2 to 7.
