Publisher's Summary

An erotic gay romance, a suspenseful thriller....

A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case.

Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he's paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it's hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliché: total opposites, good cop - bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer.

Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again - this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer's knife.

    "Easily the best and complex couple on Audible."

    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.

    "Cut & Run"

    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.

    "Overuse of rolling eyes and raised eyebrows"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    These guys roll their eyes more than teenage girls--the only major flaw in the writing.

    Newly retired, I am a reading fiend! I like many types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of romance and fantasy

    Story
    "As Cheesy As A Grilled-cheese Sandwich!"

    Well, if you like totally inane dialogue . . . . If you like to listen to incessant sarcastic verbal sparring instead of a murder investigation (of cops, yet!) . . . . You really like M/M romance . . . . You don't really care about having a decent narrator . . . .

    Then, this is the book for you!

    Seriously, the many rave reviews convinced me I had to have this book right away. After 3 1/2 hours, I can take no more. Maybe, my bad. But I CANNOT believe any FBI agents talk like these two jokers. And what happened to the investigation?

    The inane verbal foreplay just did me in.

    (Read the reviews as I am definitely in the minority here.)

    If you give me something original I will probably like it, regardless of the genre. Stick to a formula and I want to hurl a book at your head.

    Story
    "KLJSADF MY EARS."

    Do you enjoy emotionless, robotic voices that make you want to tear your hair out? Then this is the book for you!

    Honestly, if I could, I would give the performance zero stars. Mister Allerde sucks all the life and fun out of this story. I've often found my thoughts wandering then picking back up and realizing that I've missed about ten minutes of the story and have to listen to it again. It's a big problem for me because I really enjoy detective/thriller stories and LGBT romances. This book is both so it's a great catch! Sadly, I can't stand it due to the grating performance. I even found myself laughing in the more intimate parts of the book because Mister Allerde was just so DEADPAN. Growling, hissing, yelling, talking like a normal human being, all of them sound the exact same: stiff.

    BUT, when I found myself actually focusing on the story, I found it quite enjoyable. Ty and Zane are your typical dynamic duo of extreme opposites but they play off each other nicely.

    All in all, it was a good book, but the performance basically ruined all of it.

    Story
    "Not the balance I expected"
    Any additional comments?

    Given the summary, I expected things to be a bit more suspenseful and have a nice balance of romance and an actual thriller. Most of the time, however, was spent with the two characters talking to each other and the working out feelings of a young couple. The characters are both full grown men but I do not get that impression. Perhaps it was the narration.

    If you're more much interested in a romance than a story, this may be for you. Personally, the interactions between the two main characters (who are both bisexual, by the way. Not gay) seemed force and unnatural. As if they simply replaced a female character with a male one and kept the dialogue the same. The narration made it difficult to discern who was talking at times and female voices sounded forced and unnatural.

    I will be ending my listening at the first book, but I could see how others may enjoy this. The story itself was mildly entertaining with potential to be spectacular if the author took the time to do so. As a gay man, it is difficult to find relateable romance material. It seems I will have to continue my search.

    Story
    "Men do actually grow up, ladies"
    Any additional comments?

    The biggest problem I have with this book, beyond the constant adverbs, I mean come on not every action or dialogue tag needs an adverb, and as a healthy bit of advice, when someone says something "quietly," they're whispering. So say "he whispered" instead of "he said quietly" and it improves your story tenfold. No, the biggest problem I had is the general feeling that the writers know nothing about men relating to one another or to people they have crushes on beyond what they learned in grade school. Every interaction before the two characters have sex is just sniping and something that I think is intended to be banter. It's the age old idea that when a boy likes you, he punches you. No, that actually does go away at some point, and I wish the authors knew enough about men to know that. Some playful back and forth is fine, and it's expected really. But literally almost EVERY SINGLE WORD they say to each other is some kind of snipe or insult and it's not cute. No one actually talks like that. Everything here from the adverbs in the narration to the dialogue itself would have benefited from actually being read aloud during the editing process and it feels clear the writers couldn't bother.

    It would be fine if the sex were actually hot or more plentiful, but even that's bogged down in crappy and unbelievable characterization, horrible writing, and a poor sense of the space the characters occupy. I was often left wondering "Wait, where is he now? Oh wait, he got out of the shower? When did that happen?" I wanted to like this, but the horrible writing took me totally out of the story and left me unimpressed.

    Narrator needs more passion around the actual spoken parts. The narration piece is good though.
