One...the jumping POV is very irritating, although I realize it doesn't bother some readers. Outside of that, there are character inconsistencies that are major distractions. In this particular book, one of the bigger ones happened in the woods when Ty's father, brother, and lover are taken prisoner by 3 armed killers. When Zane makes a bid to overpower them, Ty fires from concealment in the woods to try and cover him, but he doesn't shoot to kill. Why not? Granted, it might have ended the bad guy's roles too soon, but that particular move does not gel with Ty's character. He's supposed to be a Recon Marine...and FBI. If there are killers with guns trained on 3 people he loves...he's going to shoot to kill. He's not going to have a mental dialogue about the morality of that choice. It's what he's trained to do...and he would see it as the only chance his father, brother, and lover have of surviving. At another point shortly after that, when Ty is a prisoner as well, a scuffle occurs and Zane kills one of the bad guys who was about to shoot Ty. It's odd, because now Ty's mental dialogue is like OMG...he killed him...WTH? Like taking the life of the bad guy was just so unexpected, and a serious moral gray area. Really? It just doesn't mesh with who they are supposed to be. When an author forces scenes to contort to the story line she's plotted out, rather than allowing them to unfold naturally as part of a story line, then it's not surprising you get inconsistencies in character choices, and a story line that loses viability to the point that readers become frustrated.
I'm starting to see why this is the "must read" series of the m/m genre. Ty and Zane are such alpha males and their attraction to each other and the way they protect each other is pure magic. The scenes in this book when they couldn't keep their hands off each other were off the charts. I'm surprised my Kindle hasn't combusted from the heat and intensity. But I am very annoyed that they're too damn stubborn to own up to their feelings for each other. Especially after the crazy events of this book.
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!
