Armed and Dangerous
Cut & Run Series Book Five – Sequel to Divide & Conquer
Left alone in Baltimore after his unpredictable lover bails, Special Agent Zane Garrett takes his frustration out on everything in his path until he is ordered to Chicago to back up an undercover operative. When he gets there, though, he finds himself face to face with his wayward partner, Special Agent Ty Grady. They have to deal with the uncertainty lingering between them while they work to retrieve their intended mark, a retired hit man and CIA wet-works operative named Julian Cross.
Ty, once a marine and now an FBI hotshot, has a penchant for being unpredictable, a trait Zane can vouch for. Zane is a man who once lived for his job but has come to realize his heartbreaking past doesn’t have to overshadow his future. They're partners, friends, lovers, and the go-to team for unusual cases. With Cross and his innocuous boyfriend, Cameron Jacobs, in tow, Ty and Zane must navigate the obstacles of a cross-country trek, including TSA pat-downs, blizzards, their uncooperative prisoners, CIA kill teams, a desperate lack of sleep or caffeine, and each other. Ty and Zane are determined to get Julian Cross to DC in one piece, but it’s starting to look like it might be the last thing they do.
I notice it is just one author now… what happened there? I actually thought this book was really well written so maybe a solo writer is better in this instance?
I just think… I didn't connect with the characters in this books as much as I was in the previous books. I think there was maybe too much on the trying to escape story part… and as much as I liked Julian and Cameron in Warrior's Cross, I was dismayed that they stole so much of Ty and Zanes time (especially Zane who seemed to disappear into the background a lot – I is a Zane girl… ROFL… so I am biased!). I wanted more on the bad guy… I liked adding in Nick and I loved the reveals at the end. I am assuming there is a Nick book coming… *wants*. I also wanted more of a reaction from Ty about why he went and where at the end of #4 and Zane being involved more… oh and Deuce… awww…
Still, I recommend this book big time if you are a Ty/Zane, Julian/Cameron, Nick, Deuce fan
