The story in this one was excellent!

Then when they came on the cruise, oh that was just wonderfull! They had the chance to act affectionate to each

This one sort of ended on a bit of fizzle for me. Was expecting a bit more to happen! Ah, well. Still a great read. Boys are undercover. LOL, when they find out what the job entails.

Ty was motionless in response. He didn’t even seem to be breathing. The silence stretched on, edging toward tens

I’ve read lots of books that are parts of series. Though I’ve enjoyed many of them, I find it difficult to complete an entire series. Sometimes the series is too long, or too much time passes between books that I pick up other books and lose interest. Sometimes the plots and structure are too formulaic and the characters show little development. Sometimes the story and characters are moving in a direction not to my liking.

So far, I’m really e
5 stars

I loved this one!!!

This series gets better and better. I loved Cut & Run. Sticks & Stones was a little too slow paced, but this one was just what I needed: a lot of action, suspense and funny moments. Oh and some pretty unexpected scenes. I loved Ty's bluntness!

Extremely sweet ending! Give me MORE!!!

Have you ever tried to sleep on a round bed? All honeymoon suites seem to think this is the ultimate in romance. It isn't, as Ty and Zane found out during their undercover assignment in this book. I was cracking up every time they fell off that damn bed because I remember doing that myself. Look, you may not realize it, but you subconsciously count on your bed having straight lines. Because of this, you constantly misjudge the boundaries of the surface you are on. So, just go ahead and sprain yo ...more

Re-read 20th April - 21st April 2018.

In this book Ty and Zane are undercover taking the roles of married couple Del and Corbin Porter.
Ty is arm candy and is therefore plucked, waxed, massaged, manicured, tanned and bleached to look like Del Porter. And you can imagine just how much he enjoyed that.

Zane doesn’t escape completely as he’s styled to look like Corbin.

It soon becomes apparent that things are far more complicated and dangerous than they expected.

***4.5 stars for the audiobook version***

This was my first audiobook narrated by Sean Crisden and…BOY, WHAT A VOICE!!!

I loved the voices he gave the characters, especially Zane’s voice was to die for (like melting chocolate – very yummy!!!), but the Italian and Turkish accents of the side characters were also amazing. The first word that comes to my mind is authentic and I must say, Kudos Mr. Crisden! Very talented!

What dampened my pleasure a bit was the recording itself. The sound level was

My boy’s Ty and Zane are back and better than ever! This is probably my favorite book in the series this far.

Ty and Zane are back to work, and now they are going undercover last minute on a holiday cruise... the kicker? They are going undercover as an openly married gay couple- Corbin and Del Porter. They have to go through ‘makeovers’ and the whole nine yards. Ty’s transformation is pretty great.

Ty and Zane’s relationship was much different in this book than the first two. I lo
5 Stars

This story was fun - even with all the life-threatening situations Ty and Zane faced, which were plentiful and intense. There has always been a certain level of humour in this series, particularly in regards to Ty and Zane's mutual banter, but the funny was elevated here because of the settings and situations the guys found themselves in, and I greatly appreciated the reprieve from all things broody and violent.

There was definitely more action in this one!! And I don't mean of the crime kind either!!!

Those better be lustful eyes Jensen Ty!!!

Noooooo don't button it up take it off!!!!

See I know you both want it! Look at those eyes and the way that tongue comes out :)

I LOVED it especially at 85% there was a lovely part then ahhhhhh! I cannot wait for the rest of the series now :)

4.5 Stars!

This one was definitely my favorite of the series so far. Enjoyed the plot, the setting.....loved that there was more development of Ty and Zanes relationship. Less near death moments for these too.

Ty really put himself out there, now I want to see Zane do the same thing!
Ok here it goes...

Ty and Zane are assigned on another case.... honestly don't care... horrible I know, but I don't read them because of their cases anymore (like I ever did), no no no no no.... I read them because of them! Because of their conversations, their kisses, their little gentle touches, their lust for each other and of course let us not forget about their hot sex!

Now let me confess something... their every scene, whether verbal or physical has made me have... *cough*

Fantastic reread! Ty and Zane are larger than life, so well suited together both personally and professionally! I so hated when it got tense between them, but I loved vulnerable and shy Ty baring his heart to Zane and Zane finally starting on the road to being the best he can be. Hilarious, passionate, heart felt and of course filled with action! My favorite dynamic duo - Ty and Zane!

Fish & Chips is book 3 in the Cut & Run series. After their mountain disaster, Ty and Zane are back on the job. They’re assigned to impersonate Del (Ty) and Corbin (Zane) Porter. Del and Corbin Porter are gay and married, and they are members of an international smuggling ring. Ty and Zane are going on a merry Christmas cruise in the Caribbean.

Reread 10/8/17 and 10/25/20

My favorite of the first 5 books....until Stars & Stripes was published.

One of the best of the series! I couldn't care less that it's a cheesy set up of them pretending to be a gay couple while undercover. It is executed so perfectly for them to finally pull it all to the surface. The affection and the communication in this one was amazing!

Perfection! On to the next one with Jewel!

3.5 stars upgraded to solid 4 stars after sleeping over it.this has nothing to do with finding my kindle beneath me when I woke up today morning
Liked this one more than the first two books in the series. Though I did find it a bit lacking in action but there were some major headways in the relationship between the MCs, so its all gooey mushy good.
Ah Zane's still my fave, he is sooo f##*ed up! :D

This book was such a fun read! It was so much better than the second book as we get more Ty and Zane in this one (with no cockblockers in between thank god) and the sex . God fucking damn, the motherfucking sex scenes though.


If I could have died and gone to heaven and died and gone to unicorn land, that was how it would feel like while reading those steamy hot scenes. Just.

4.5 stars. I liked this book best of the series so far, for several reasons. First, I think I've found the right way to read them. You have to be in a kind of zen go-with-the-flow mood. You can't ask why the FBI would consider sending two agents deep undercover and giving them back-up but would not show them pictures of the people (so they don't inadvertently shoot them) or provide any way to identify or contact or even signal distress to that back-up, and the agents unquestioningly accept that ...more

I have noted in previous reviews that there is a cinematic quality to this series. It has a rhythm which sucks you in quickly and keeps you interested from beginning to end. Fish & Chips was particularly outstanding in this arena, and established itself as my favorite book in the series so far.
5 Huge Stars for a very romantic and steamy book about the lovely couple Ty & Zane.

I'm in the middle of a large read requests for M/M romances right now. Just a little more than a month ago I read my first romance book about "boys who love boys". Now I'm stuck in this genre and what isn't better than another book about the this two gorgeous boys, Ty and Zane.
