When you have to sttle down and breathe for a while, what is best than a trip to the family's house in the moutain?
What can possibly happen when you just go for a walk with your (work) partner, your father and your brother? Find out in this story (and beware of the snakes, Sidewinder boy!)
C’est un plaisir de retrouver nos cher Ty et Zane. Les auteurs ont décidément de grandes choses de prévues pour ces deux là. D’ailleurs on ne peut leur en vouloir car il faut bien se l’avouer, on ne rêve que de les voir finir ensemble ces deux là. Ici Ty et Zane ont essayé de vivre leur relation après les événements du premier tome mais quelque chose en eux leur a empêcher de vraiment concrétiser leur relation. Et s’ils ne devaient que se rendre compte qu’il suffit d’un rien et d’acceptation de soi pour qu’ils vivent réellement une relation.
J’ai beaucoup aimé l’introduction du frère de Ty qui va être un réel bénéfice pour leur relation en les poussant à réfléchir à certains points qu’ils auraient négligé. On sent une progression dans la personnalité de nos deux héros mais ne vous inquiétez pas pour les accro de l’action, ce livre reste un excellent policier car de l’action il va y en avoir durant leur périple en montagne…
C’est d’ailleurs merveilleux de voir avec quel talent les auteurs maîtrisent l’action et la psychologie, en nous offrant un livre excellent sur bien des points de vue. Nous n’avons pas affaire à une simple romance, mais à beaucoup plus. Les auteurs prennent le temps de faire progresser leurs personnages et pour éviter qu’on ne se concentre que sur ce point, introduisent de l’action, et en se faisant font passer ce roman à une toute autre dimension.
Je ne vous en dirais pas plus sur l’histoire à proprement parler. Sachez juste qu’il y a une forte note d’espoir pour le couple de deux agents…
Bon vous l’aurez compris, j’ai adoré ce livre et je n’ai qu’une envie en lire la suite ( d’ailleurs vous trouverez un extrait du troisième tome à la fin de celui ci). Je vous la recommande les yeux fermés car je sais que vous allez l’adorer. Attention phénomène d’addiction non contrôlé…

Just weeks after being partnered officially and drawn back to DC, Zane and Ty are riding desks at Quantico until they're cleared for casework - and neither are too happy about it. The hyper Ty is bouncing off the walls and Zane, who's too emotionally buttoned down to do much bouncing at all, is still struggling with nightmares and exhaustion and he's in a bad place head-wise. When the unofficial psych evals come down from their boss, SAC Dick Burns, they're forced into a vacation that neither wants but both desperately need.
Ty ends up taking Zane home with him to West By-God-Virginia, and together with members of Ty's family, Zane is drawn into a world he's never known and forced to face - with Ty - emotions and situations he'd never dreamed about. This rich and thoroughly well developed story spans a few weeks of time and deals the men a bad hand of freezing weather on a mountain, murderous treasure hunters, and wildlife that'd sooner eat you than look at you. And how they survive - IF they survive - is going to be more a measure of who they are and how they feel about each other than any skill they have as federal agents.
It's an incredible read - just absolutely incredible - not because the plot is so spectacular or the book is so well written (though the plot IS solid and the book IS very well written). No, what sets Sticks & Stones (and Cut & Run) apart is the total immersion into these two damaged and flawed characters' lives. They're SO well drawn, so utterly realistic and believable - in part because they're so human (with all the good AND bad traits of two stubborn and masculine men) and in part because they're so often at the mercy of situations they can't control...yet somehow manage to do so anyway. These are guys you may not like (hell, at times I don't like them - but I do love them), and several times I found myself frustrated with one or the other (or both) because they're such MEN sometimes, but you certainly won't be unmoved by them or their plights. Even when they're so damn stoic it makes you grind your teeth with the knowledge that it would be so much more cathartic for them to just TALK about their feelings! I know...sounds just like a man, doesn't it?
And THAT'S the best thing about this series (and yes, it IS a series, and the third book, Fish & Chips, is in production). These two men are REAL. Real frustrating, real charming (when they want to be), real devoted to each other (even when they DON'T want to be), real, real, real, REAL. They're tragically flawed and hopelessly lost at times. They take damage that breaks their bodies and minds and the consequences of that damage are realistic and humanizing. They want things they don't always get. They love, though it makes them horribly uncomfortable at times. They are sons and brothers and buddies to people who see them as 'son', 'brother', and 'buddy' - and these authors write so well you can actually SEE that delineation between how they view themselves and how they act in those 'rolls'.
It's just SO well written, I lack the necessary superlatives to express it accurately. It has to be experienced. So go. Experience it. Now would be good. But start with Cut & Run - you can thank me later.
Another book I highly recommend by these authors:
I didn't read the first book due to some negative reviews that made a lot of sense but I did read that it gets much better with the second book so I gave it a try.
The first two chapters were unbearable, as it were the same with the parts that were supposed to be filled with suspense and action. There were two scenes like this, one right off the bat, and one in the middle. The pace was very slow, and it got confusing especially in the first few scenes with all the movement. It also wasn't believable for me. I would have expected more from 2 FBI agents, frankly.
But besides that, the interaction between the characters, the dialogue, the sex scenes were pretty well done. The main characters are pretty likeable and I like their chemistry together. I'm unfamiliar with the psychology stuff but nothing really shouted out as WRONG.
I was a little frustrated with the I-love-him-but-I-don't-want-to-cross-the-line because it's very cliche, but it's okay with you can ride that out. There are a few adjectives that were used so many times, like "wryly." The alternating perspective thing is still quite confusing to me, especially since there are so many "he"s. It'd be nice if the author could write in the beginning of each section whose perspective it is written in.
The guys are versatile, so bonus points!
You know what? I'm glad I did.
Cut and Run's plot was...pretty weak, so I was very pleased with the flow of Sticks and Stones. Set in the mountains of West Virginia, Ty, his brother, father and Zane make a trek up a long hiking trail after Ty and Zane were forced on vacation.
Naturally, the hike proves to be a segue into hellacious misadventures and suspenseful action scenes, as well as really heart warming moments between Ty and Zane.
Heart warming isn't the right way to describe it. Let's go with cute as hell.
Yeah, cute as hell is definitely a better way of describing it.
These two strong, trained FBI agents who can kill a man in probably a hundred different ways are so damn adorable around each other it makes me want to curl up into a happy ball of fan-girl squeals and die.
It's ridiculous. And I love it.
They're back and fourth ranges between chest bumping aggression, to verbal and physical assaults on each other, to passionate sex, to cuddles, to slowly opening up their fragile little hearts to each other.
My god the sappiness is just too good. It's so sweet it'll give you cavities.
Over all, if you liked Ty and Zane's back and forth and how their relationships was progressing, Sticks and Stones is great. I didn't think it was slow, I thought the pacing was just fine.
Now on to Fish and Chips!
