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.



“He tightened his arms, not wanting Ty to move away. “It’s more than just fucking around now,” he said. “Isn’t it?” He made sure the tone of his voice emphasized that it wasn’t really a question. Ty was motionless in response. He didn’t even seem to be breathing. The silence stretched on, edging toward tension

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

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.

The whole secret lovers going undercover as real lovers thing really worked f

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!
The Cut & Run series takes to the high seas and I'm struggling not to make a "love boat" reference!

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*

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.

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 loved

This book was so fricken perfect!! Loved the toppy Zane!!!
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

Final rating: 5/5 stars

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

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.

”REREAD WEEK” (Nov 24, 2012)

Awwww…I actually think I liked this better this time. First read, I couldn’t get past how outlandish the whole scenario of the story was. But, being able to look past that (or skim past it, as it were),I enjoyed some of the emotional exchanges between Ty & Zane more. Also, lots and lots of sex! (hubba, hubba!)

***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 f

With Fish & Chips we had Ty and Zane going undercover as a married couple on a cruise. Yep all fabulous, makeovers what have you but, i was so excited to see them being a couple out in public, even if they are meant to be portraying other people.
I loved watching their feelings and emotions develop in this one. Each wondering if the other was just doing things and saying things as part of their cover or their true feelings. And well of course the sex was hot hot hot! Damn they just h
Reread 10/8/17

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!

~BR reread with Jewel - doing the whole series over from start to finish! ~

“Now understand: this may put you both in a few uncomfortable situations,” McCoy went on sincerely. “But you've both got UC experience, and I’m sure you’d both rather have to kiss each other than be shot at,” he joked. Ty cleared his throat and tried to restrain a smile.

These books just keep getting better and I'm ADDICTED!

Falling in love or just plain falling: they were both terrifying at any speed.

Things with Ty and Zane just gets more interesting with every book. They have been assigned to a new case, one that has them pretending to be a married couple on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. Not only will they have to change themselves to fit their pretend profiles, they also have to get used to not hiding their affection for each other.

If he were feeling particularly romantic, he might have admitted he

After re-reading this, it's still one of my favorites from the lovable series. This seems like the "vacation" Ty & Zane deserved. In here, they were most relaxed since Book 1 and it was joy to read.

Of course the draw to this book is still Ty & Zane. And the development of their relationship here is one of my favorites and one that stuck with me. Because finally........I'm not gonna spoil it. Sorry. XD

I also loved that Ty turned into a sweet sap here. And I gotta sa

Loved, loved, loved this!

This book just had all the things I love in a romance. I am already crazy for Ty and Zane so the development of their relationship through a delightfully awkward assignment just really worked for me. The humor, pace and completeness also really worked well for me.

One of the things I like best is that although the authors weave a good undercover story the romance is what really shines. Since that is what I'm reading these books for that's what I want and it's just wh
Of course I loved it - those guys are amazing together & it was a terrific plot and extremely well written... On to the next one.

God damn it was hot - I keep thinking about that scene on the pool deck with Zane sitting behind Ty and... oh my god... just wow, how do they think of these things?!?! dayum.

To say I loved this book is a huge understatement!

In this story, Ty and Zane are going undercover as a out and proud married couple, who deal in stolen antiquities. All the players are meeting on a cruise to the Caribbean. Ty is (Del) the pretty arm candy and Zane is Corbin, the tough, intelligent business man. Zane is the lead on this and Ty is told to basically hang at the pool and get a tan and look pretty.

While the suspense part of this was interesting and at times left me worried and

Zane and Ty are back on the job after what happened on the mountain in the last book. They must go on a Caribbean cruise and usurp an openly gay married couple named Corbin (Zane) and Del (Ty) Porter, who are part of a smuggling ring. Things don't go as planned with someone trying to kill them and get difficult when they cannot locate their back up.

I could probably read about Ty and Zane all day
