River On The Edge
The story is adequate but the dynamics of the two as depicted through this book & the three follow-ups is amazing. Two men with hang-ups and complicated personalities but who, despite their own intentions, are sexy as hell to each other and to the reader.
WOW!!! What a great story . . . it took me 3/4's of the book to figure who the "bad guy" was. The feelings and mental anguish that Ty & Zane go through not only as FBI agents but as an "almost" couple come across in spades. The narrater makes this story seem like a movie to me.
These guys roll their eyes more than teenage girls--the only major flaw in the writing.
The whole part one was very hard for me to listen to, very little plot and unlikable characters. The only reason I continued to listen was the hope that some of the good writing from Volume 1 would eventually pop up. It did. It just took until part two for it to kick into gear. I enjoyed part two immensely. It had plenty of funny moments, tense moments and a plethora of hot scenes.
The Story was ok, but the author has never met a gay person. The story about the characters was poorly written. I have met and have gay friends, The author has only been told about gay people by someone that doesn't like them.
NO. The story wasn't that interesting, It could have been good. The author should have focused more on the investagation than the relationship.
I do not appreciate getting stuck with a m/m romance book without warning. Please rate these things clearly. Yuck!
This series is a standout, not only in the m/m genre but in romance as a whole. My only problem with the series is that the last few aren't available on Audible. No reader of romance can go wrong in buying every book in this series. Compelling relationship, intriguing mystery, excellent sex. Not sure what more I can ask for here.
I'm a 25 year old mum to my beautiful nearly 2 yr old daughter and i LOVE books , both reading and listening to them :D
i liked the tone and he did really well with the different characters voices
Forbidden F.B.I love and killer on the loose
really enjoyed the storyline and the sexy characters :D
If you are in to M/M romance book this is a series you absolutely can not miss! This is by far my favorite in the genre. The charaters comes to life in a way that you actually miss them when finished with the series. The storyline about two very different and at the same time similar FBI agents who becomes involved during their professional partnership are of course the main storyline throughout the entire series, but every book has its own well thought out plot with different cases they have to solve.
The writting is excellent and humorous. The narrator is also by far the best I have had the pleasure of listening to.
I have listened to all five available book and after that I had to know what happend in the latest two book, which have not been made available on audible as of yet but should not be missed even if you have to read the book the oldfasion way (or in this case as an e-book)
Reader. Wannabe writer. That's a picture of me standing in line to see Stephen King!
Wow, where to start! This book is a study in how not to write a novel, and yet… and yet, these gals must know something I certainly don’t: they’re published, and this book, Cut and Run, is first in a series of six (!), so far. Or maybe soft-core porn just doesn’t need to be all that well written.
Trying to keep up with the point of view changes was like trying to watch the ball in a championship ping-pong match. It was hard to keep up with who was speaking, and therefore it was impossible to know whose story was being told. Confusing the reader with POV changes is a huge Writing 101 no-no. In Cut and Run the perspective changes so often, sometimes within the same paragraph, that the moment you, reader, start to identify with one character the perspective has switched and you’re on to the other making it difficult to care about either.
I would wager that a full third of this book is nothing but adverbs. Oh my god, nearly every action is done carefully, slowly, slightly, doubtfully, soothingly, flatly, softly, curtly, wordlessly, logically, dubiously… “She complained, obviously.” So many adverbs. They stifled the flow and undermined the storytelling. Another Writing 101 no-no, and the classic “show vs. tell” issue. Instead of telling us that “he watched him warily” the writers could have left out the adverbs, let the dialog and the action flow, and just showed us that the watching was wary.
And speaking of the dialog… the meant-to-be playful banter between the two main characters is forced and sometimes awkward and often clichéd. It’s intended to tell readers, “They hate each other. No, they really hate each other. Well, maybe it’s actually angsty teasing. No, it’s foreplay!” And the writers just beat you over the head with it throughout.
Let’s just call this for what it is: it’s a buddy cop romance thinly disguised as a mystery. There are a lot of needless descriptions of hotel rooms, what the men wore, and pointless actions that have nothing to do with the story, and all these descriptions are just long lead-ins to the sex scenes. The characters don’t actually spend much time trying to solve the murder mystery that is supposed to be at the heart of the story. As for the mystery, if that is what brought you to this book, I would recommend selecting something else. The mystery, a serial killer in New York, isn’t even mysterious enough to keep the attention of the two main characters.
While the budding romance was tender and the sex scenes were kinda hot, I wasn't sufficiently moved by the characters or the story in this book to continue with the series.
Allerde’s narration wasn’t awful – when doing male voices – but his falsettos were pretty bad.
