But what book would it be without Sidewinder and mortal danger. But the boys are always ready, thank you Digger for traveling battle set, you crazy adorable Marine. The whole book from a certain point is a non-stop fight to stay alive and ahead of their enemies, of which there are plenty. Past comes to haunt Ty spilling over Zane and his buddies. It's a tough pill to swallow, but needs must. I loved all the characters including Ava and Liam Bell. Each of them were unique in their audacity and love for Ty. But in the end all it came down to was trust and a wrong bullet.
A real page-turner full of feels and angst, friendship and love. I love Ty and Zane! I highly recommend it and am jumping onto next one!
Without further ado, here's the One Gigantic Problem, plus some bonus side issues, expressed in my own words (obviously not a quotation taken from the series):
Ty (repeating himself over a course of months): Trust me, Zane! I love you! Be mine! Trust me! Trust me! Trust me!
Zane: I don't know. I need to examine this from every angle to make sure I haven't missed something.
Ty: Trust me! Nothing else has been a lie besides what I've already confided in you! I love you!
Zane: I'm really making a tool of myself by taking so long to return your love. I do love you, Ty. I trust you. Don't leave me alone in the dark.
(Some guys in ski masks grab Ty and Zane and throw them in the back of a van. Somehow, this is accomplished without bloodshed. Lights come up, revealing the Sidewinders.)
Owen: Surprise, it's us! Ain't we cute? Grady, I can't believe you haven't told your boyfriend your secrets yet!
Zane: WTF, Ty? Tell me or I'm leaving you.
Ty: I'm sorta an active Marine who could be recalled at any time to go die in some place where you can't save me. Not that that's your worst fear or anything. Haven't you wondered about the packed bag in the closet? Why are you looking at me like that? That secret isn't nearly as bad as... oops...
Zane: There's something ELSE? WHAT???
Ty: Woe is me. Are you really going to force me to tell you?
(Zane whips out a machete, a rifle, a bazooka, a pair of sai, and a keg of beer. He wields them.) It would seem I have to, huh?
Ty: I've been sneaking off to kill Vega's minions because I'm assigned to act as your guard. And yet, the other reason we were partnered in the first place is because Burns suspects you're a traitor. My real job in this partnership has always been to spy on you. Why are you still looking at me like that? None of this affects you.
Zane: Time for a drink. Glug glug glug glug.
Ty: This is too much of a burden for me. You shouldn't have put me on a pedestal to the extent of trusting me to be honest with you about the big things. Don't you read any self-help? You know you should be strong and independent enough not to be fazed when I freak you over. I'm going away. Have the gift of some time on your own so you can become good enough for this relationship.
Zane: Gee willikers, thanks, Ty.
Reviewer: I don't see how any relationship could come back from that train wreck. In the next book (Ball & Chain), lots of extreme actions are taken which look like a frantic effort at backpedaling over a line that can't be uncrossed. To my disappointment, once Ty's secrets came out, I didn't like him anymore and didn't get over it until Crash & Burn. The problem was not that Ty accepted the assignments involving Zane. Okay, he thought it was the only way they could be together, fine. The problem is that he owed Zane the truth after a certain point in their relationship -- like maybe the point where he promised there were no more lies. It's clear that whatever happens, Ty's first priority is to be an obedient little boy for Burns or whoever, not to be a man for Zane. Plunk, plunk goes the sad sound of nuts falling. I hope shifty-eyed squirrels will get them. Maybe the reason Ty was given fewer point-of-view passages after the secrets came out is that his stance either doesn't make sense or is unjustifiable. If he isn't going to see things in a way that makes sense, not much is left for him to do but repeat the Nuremberg defense and feel sorry for himself.
I didn't want to give this book a star rating because, as other reviewers have said, I'm so confoozed! Yes, after reading T & G, I did want to find out what happens next. So it was an effective story in that sense. Or maybe I was only feeling the momentum from the previous books in the series. Did I feel good after finishing T & G? No. Kind of ill. The plot? No, I'm not wading back in there to analyze the quality of the plot. I remember an impression that it was put together well, leave it at that.
Read it if you need some angst. This book might appeal to the inscrutable people who complained that S & S didn't have enough drama. But skip over T & G if you're feeling vulnerable and want a lift.
So I guess that if you're reading and put out by the reveal, keep going.
Though I am grumpy about the ending, but also, very pleased.
