Présentation de l'éditeur

Cut & Run Series: Book One

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 cliché: 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.

A great book if you're not actually reading for the murder/mystery. The romance is so amazing! If by any chance you haven't read this book yet just go for it, you won't regret it. And with that I'm off to buy the next installment.

The writing is poor, boring, the characters not believable in the least and nothing happens, they just babble all book long in the worst dialogues i've read in a long-long time...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another winner from Urban and Roux 17 octobre 2008
Par Aunt Lynn - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am a fan of these authors ("Caught Running" being one of my favorite books) so I was eager to see what the ladies had come up with next. I was pleased to find that their third effort as a team has produced a well-written m/m erotic romance serial killer thriller/murder/mystery. Whew, that's a mouthful!

This is an about face from "Caught Running," which is a gentle, sweet, turn-you-into-a-puddle-of-goo love story. The only thing "Cut & Run" has in common with the other is that it also is a slow builder to the romance (if you can call it that in this book, see below). But that's where it ends. Where "Caught Running" left me all warm and fuzzy, this one kept me on the edge of my seat through much of it. It is rough and harsh and exciting and gripping, about as different from "Caught Running" as possible. This is not a bad thing, it's just different, and once I got past that fact, I really got into it.

The plot and character development are at the forefront here, with the romance and erotica fit in around the investigation, threats, and danger. We are led to believe early on that these two FBI agents are very different from each other, but as the story unfolds, we learn otherwise. Their love is certainly not perfect, as neither protagonist is. Both are seriously flawed and jaded and scarred inside and out, but that made them real for me. They are also fallible and vulnerable; so many times in stories such as this one, the good guys never get a scratch, never make an error in judgment, but not Ty and Zane. I cared for them and shed a tear for them and rooted for them. These guys hate each other for the first quarter of the book, which makes for an interesting attraction phase of their relationship; their struggles to keep the building and established attraction hidden, buried and unnoticed are hard-fought in many ways throughout the entire book. Their professions and personalities put them at odds with both their feelings and how those feelings could be expressed much of the time. The romance is so reluctant, so angry at times, that it's almost unromantic, and yet, there are some surprisingly tender moments, too. Through circumstances, each character changes and grows and puts on/takes off masks, and though at first I had some issue with their seeming Jekyll/Hyde personality shifts, a second reading made it clearer for me the whys around it.

For the story itself, it's fairly long for this genre at 370 pages, and though I guessed who the killer was early on, it didn't detract from the experience for me. The on-and-off suspense and action really is a roller coaster ride, as another reviewer mentions. This would make for a great action film, if this country were ready for m/m love in with their gunfire and car chases and hunting down the bad guy (hmm...if "Brokeback Mountain" was "cowboys in love" then this could be "G-Men in love!"). Think "Die Hard" meets "Lethal Weapon" meets "Zodiac" meets "Seven," but with some yummy man-on-man action thrown in.

On the negative, I was hoping that the authors would have penned the shifting POV better than in "Caught Running," which drove me a little bonkers. Alas, no such luck, so once again I had to re-read the sentences and paragraphs before to make sure I knew whose head I was in.

This aside, however, the effort is overall top-notch, especially in this genre, where the focus generally is on the smut, not the story. In fact, it's just a great book, period, and it just further reinforces my opinion that a great book can be a fabulous story with juicy hawt sex thrown in for flavor, not the other way around as it often is. I'm very impressed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intense characters, intense situations! 15 juin 2009
Par Amy Lane - Publié sur Amazon.com
It is always a pleasure to read an Urban/Roux collaboration--the dialog is sharp, the characters are interesting, likable (even when they're not!) and the action is tense. Cut & Run was the best of their writing. Ty and Zane are both dark, gritty, and self-destructive characters who both completely misunderstand each other and get each other like nobody else in their lives. Their attraction is uneasy, uncomfortable, and electric--and hampered by the fact that both of them have lived so long in a 'heterosexuals only' world that they are afraid to even think the things their bodies are feeling. Watching the characters peel layers from each other's psyches is both fascinating and painful--their bodies are bared with much more ease than their souls, and in the breath-taking finale, it is their actions and their motivations that reveal just how deep an unvoiced love can run. I'd recommend this book for both the m/m romance reader and the murder mystery buff (who doesn't mind hot smex in her murder mystery!). The love scenes are both scorching and tender, and the action is intense and compelling. Thank you, Ms. Urban and Ms. Roux--this was an enjoyable, wonderful read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely AWESOME! A MUST Read! 30 décembre 2009
Par Tracy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
With deeply flawed characters and a race to stop a serial killer, Cut & Run rockets to the top of my list of romantic thrillers with a breakneck pace and intensity to rival the masters of the genre. Urban & Roux have knocked this one out of the park and vaulted into my "absolute must read" category. I was very pleased with Warrior's Cross, but Cut & Run is even better.

The writing duo of Urban & Roux have penned realistic and tragic characters, characters who aren't always nice (occasionally downright nasty), damaged characters who have drinking problems, drug problems, sex problems, job problems, and issues with their sexuality - and they're written in such a way that they are remarkably believable as less-than-virtuous even while maintaining a level of sympathy that was rather surprising, given their flaws. This feat is accomplished while the authors blend together a plot of danger and death that is both taut and intense, and much like life, sometimes too much for the protagonists to handle. Brilliantly executed and legitimately thought provoking, this is no simple m/m erotica. This is a deep, thorough thriller with a developing relationship between the two male leads, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett, that is at times uncomfortable, at times tense, sexy, tender, snarky, and loving...while Ty and Zane run the emotional gamut between hard-assed and broken, at times stronger and bigger than life, at times hurt and lost and afraid.

There's no traditional HEA here, and I was left feeling that Ty and Zane's story is really just beginning by the end. In truth, the baggage they carry is still heavy on their shoulders (though lighter than when they started), but there's promise and progress and hope. There's even a little bit of redemption and absolution.

Between this book and Warrior's Cross, I get the impression that Urban & Roux don't like to tie up all the threads of their characters into a neat little rose-colored-glasses bow, and while I do enjoy those bows in most cases, their books are better and more realistic for the lack, and in the end, Cut & Run reverberates with a sense of truism and rightness that other novels with a strong romance theme included just don't manage to pull off. This makes their books stand out in my mind and secures them as books I'll read again and again.

I can not say enough how much I loved this book, or how quickly I'm going to snatch up everything else these authors do together. Fantastic.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not horrible, but... 27 juin 2012
Par Leigh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Not horrible, but I wouldn't recommend it to serious readers or writers.

Spoilers may ensue.

I read the first chapter of this book on kindle for free before buying it, and I could tell from just that free preview that the writing was not the best... but Ty's smartass attitude made me chuckle and I liked the chemistry between the characters, so I decided to buy and finish the book. Almost every aspect of this novel was mediocre at best.

The characters changed dramatically throughout the book, and by the last quarter of the novel, they were mostly just annoying me. It is revealed at one point that these men are 34 and 42 years old, but they act like a couple teenagers. They're constantly brooding or having mood swings. By the end of the book, they were "in love", but they'd only spent about a week and a half together, split up over the span of eight months. That feels like Romeo and Juliet to me.

At first I was afraid the characters were going to be "perfect men" (based on early descriptions, they are tall, muscular, trained in combat, good detectives, etc) but as the novel progressed, I started to feel like they were almost too IMperfect to be believable. They're supposed to be FBI agents. Zane appears clean-cut and perfect on the outside, but has a past full of drug abuse and addiction problems and seems to be constantly on the verge of lapsing back into those habits. Ty appears flippant and strong on the outside, but turns out to be haunted by nightmares and guilt and has no idea how to handle adult feelings and doesn't even vaguely follow protocols. I don't know a lot about the FBI, but I doubt they would let agents like these work a high-profile serial killer case.

As for the serial killer case, which is the main plot, I figured out who the killer was so early on in the book it was kind of pathetic. There is practically no real "investigating" done, and the men seem to stand around their hotel room looking exhausted and frustrated for most of the case. I have absolutely no idea why these men were put on this case. Neither seemed especially more skilled than other agents, they never actually figured out who the killer was (he revealed himself), and Ty figured out the connection between the "random" kills purely by a fluke that anyone could have stumbled upon. And then the connection, I felt, was kind of random itself, like the authors just wanted to bring in a mention of great literature to seem educated. This novel definitely did not weave a masterful mystery.

My last point is related to the writing itself, on a sentence level: word choice was poor. Strange/annoying phrases were repeated ad nauseum (such as "turned his chin" to indicate that he turned his head. It is not possible to turn your chin. If you want to say the character turned his head, say "he turned his head"). Adverbs were used in excess (asked sarcastically, said neutrally, watched impatiently, looked impassively, nodded absently), dialogue tags were used in excess, and the authors wrote "growled" far too often for a book without a single animal in it. Real human people do not growl randomly while getting out of bed, or in the middle of a conversation, or, well, ever.

I gave this book three stars because I got about 3/4 of the way through it before any of this stuff really got on my nerves. I made fun of the writing and mentally revised almost every sentence as I read it, and I thought about how unrealistic the characters seemed, but I was curious about the serial killer case even though I had my suspicions about the killer's identity already. But when I got about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way in, I started to feel like the story was just losing momentum fast. It should be building momentum at that point, but it just... wasn't. So the last quarter of the book, I read mainly just because it was there, not because I was interested any longer. I won't be reading the rest of the series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Yes, yes I finally broke down and read this! 10 août 2012
Par Heather C. - Publié sur Amazon.com
♦ The MCs
♦ The mystery
♦ The intensity
♦ The name calling
♦ The banter
♦ The snark
♦ The fighting
♦ The sexual tension
♦ The violent kissing
♦ The angry f***ing

♦ The head hopping!! It was exhausting trying to decipher who was saying, doing, thinking what. I found myself rereading a lot.
♦ The beginning of the book! It was slow reading for a while. Add in the head hopping and it seemed like it took forever for anything to happen. But about midway it evened out a bit and seemed to move faster.
♦ The fighting! I know I listed it above in the "Positives" list but it was sometimes exhausting. Add in the head hopping and I was thoroughly confused.

What The F***?! Are You Serious?!
♦ In the first half of the book, Ty and Zane kept saying how it was too dangerous for them to be separated, that they must stick together at all times, yet they left each other multiple times when it was convenient for the story. It didn't make sense to me.
♦ The huge time jump in the middle of the book broke the pace of the story for me. It seemed like it was at the point of a major climax...then BAM, 4 months later. Yeah, I know it was important to the story but I felt like something important was missing.
♦ Ty and Zane's personality transplants threw me off. I understood the cause and reason behind it, but by the end of the book I was unable to see who the real Ty and who the real Zane were. I hope this comes across more clearly in the next books.

I really love Ty and Zane. Sometimes I loved Ty more; other times Zane stole my heart. The are both really f***ed up, complex characters that I totally connected with!

In the end, I really loved this book, but the exhausting parts were a few too numerous for me to forgive. Surprisingly, I am looking forward to reading the sequel...which is really rare for me.
