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.

♦ 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.

Format: Paperback
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!

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.
