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.

    I'm all about the romance. I like the romance to be understated and hot. I love to feel that the characters belong with each other whether it be m/f or m/m. I hope I can find more people who share my same passions so that I can share the reviews and suggestions.

    Story
    "Better as a movie"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better narrator


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    If I were the narrator I would have made the difference between Ty and Zane.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sawyer Allerde?

    Charlie David


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All....but mostly anticipation for more spark between Ty and Zane.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure the authors meant for the couple to be more hot, but the narrator's voice was so monotone.

    Story
    "Kind of slow"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    You have to read this to get a baseline of the main characters, but it was very predictable and at sometimes juvenile behavior of a professional FBI or profiler was ridiculous. If you read Karin Slaughter or Linda Fairstein type books (which I do) you might get annoyed.But I urge you to keep reading the series.It gets better with each book!


    If you’ve listened to books by Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban before, how does this one compare?

    This was ok. Slow going


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Ty and Zane beat the crap out of each other


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Stick with it if you love the characters. The plots aren't really complicated or engaging. Its all about Ty and Zane

    Story
    "HIghly Entertaining."

    This story will definitely keep your attention. Ty and Zane are great characters with explosive energy. The mystery was a bit predictable, but the development of the relationship between the two main characters more than made up for it. The narrator was good. I cringed whenever he had to do a woman's voice, but luckily, that wasn't very often. I would definitely purchase the next books in the series.

    Story
    "No way could I cut and run from this story!"

    Stellar writing, believable characters, and an engaging plot are evident from the very beginning. The authors have written the perfect combination of drama, sexual tension, and humor, making it easy to fall in love with Ty and Zane as individuals and as a potential couple. You ache for them to be together as much as they do, even if they won't admit it. They are flawed men, both rough around the edges, but together they balance each other out. To say I was ecstatic to discover that there are more books in this series is an understatement. It's too bad Hollywood hasn't embraced gay romance/erotica as lucrative, because this would be an amazing movie.

    Mostly using audiobooks when my concentration is so bad that I can't read text. Or sometimes when I feel the need to practise my [listening] english even more. I'm not very picky when it comes to stories, so can listen to practically anything – and have a knack to find SOMETHING in each story that I like. *smile*

    Story
    "Very enjoyable"

    Now, I have a thing for serial killers so naturally that was a pull towards this book. I also tried it out due to one review I read here on audible actually.

    I fell hard and fast for the main characters and their wonderful and witty banter with each other. The way the relationship between them grew felt right and well written. The tension, the fights, the clever conversations, and later the care and warmth that was expressed in body language rather than words. It felt very real, the relationship.

    I liked the storyline, the Poe-thing being a nice touch. I actually really liked how the story ended, I would have been happy with that – but of course I won't keep myself away from trying out the second book *chuckle* What I mean is that I wouldn't have minded if there wasn't one if this hadn't been a serie.

    The narrator took a little bit of getting used to for me. Most of the time he did a great job and he was great at pulling off conversations between the main characters. Once in a while he sounded s tiny bit monotone though, or maybe that's not the right way to describe it... It's like once in a while he didn't put enough feeling behind a sentence that I know I would have put more feeling behind if I was reading it myself.

    Overall it's a book I can recommend, a very enjoyable listen!

    Story
    "Better than most Gay Fiction"
    Would you listen to Cut and Run again? Why?

    I love fiction, but usually have a hard time with gay characters, because they are so cheesy. I fell in love with these two boys, though. It's a bit cheesy and the narrator needs to slow down and get better at girls voices, but still, I love it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Zane....I used to have a crush on a guy that reminded me so much of him...or at least I made Zane into him, haha.


    Any additional comments?

    Parts are hot without being bad erotica....

    Story
    "it has everything"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A great story filled with all the elements you would hope for - you won't be disappointed!


    What other book might you compare Cut and Run to and why?

    This was the first book of a gay genre that I read, but I suppose I would compare to John Grisham work - but with real action.


    Have you listened to any of Sawyer Allerde’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have to admit I sort of fell in love with his voice - and there was some disappointment to find he wasn't the voice of the whole cut & run series - he's a great reader and I could listen to him for hours.

    Story
    "Pretty good bro-mance..."
    Would you listen to Cut and Run again? Why?

    I might after I listen to the other books in the series. The story wasn't too graphic in it's sexual nature. More emphasis was placed on the mystery than the sex, which is refreshing in this genre of literature.


    What other book might you compare Cut and Run to and why?

    Maybe Silence of the Lambs and Brokeback Mountain. So many references to FBI stuff made this one reek of Thomas Harris yet the bro-mance was a little violent and reminded me of Brokeback.


    What does Sawyer Allerde bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Absolutely.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions except I found myself taking the long way home from work to listen longer.


    Any additional comments?

    I think one could wait till this one is on sale before purchasing.
