Cut & Run Series Book Three: Sequel to Sticks & Stones
Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are back on the job, settled into a personal and professional relationship built on fierce protectiveness and blistering passion. Now they’re assigned to impersonate two members of an international smuggling ring—an out-and-proud married couple—on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. As their boss says, surely they’d rather kiss each other than be shot at, and he has no idea how right he is. Portraying the wealthy criminals requires a particular change in attitude from Ty and Zane while dealing with the frustrating waiting game that is their assignment. As it begins to affect how they treat each other in private, they realize there’s more to being partners than watching each other’s backs, and when the case takes an unexpected turn and threatens Ty’s life, he and Zane will have to navigate seas of white lies and stormy secrets, including some of their own.

The writing and character development
Great performance. Technical glitches in the recording that would cause the volume to drop. When recorded, gain wasn't high enough so volume was limited.
I have seen a few reviews knocking Fish and Chips as the weak link in this series. I disagree - this one is just more focused on the relationship than the manly FBI action, and I'm OK with that in a huge way. 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.
Absolutely! This narrator is truly stellar. His voice differentiation is amazing and so consistent. This is so much more than a narration. Sean Crisden brings every character to life. Of course, the story itself is brilliant. I fell in love with these characters during book one and never looked back. I have read them all several times and listen to the audio frequently.
The whole Cut and Run series grabbed me from the very beginning. I bought book one based off summary and reviews and was blown away. One of the most unique characteristics of this book and series is that they are so unique - a total breath of fresh air that should not be missed if you love this genre.
This was my first experience with Sean Crisden and he totally blew me away. His character differentiation is wonderful and so consistent. I am now officially a Sean Crisden groupie and will buy audiobooks strictly based upon the fact that he is the narrator. I think he could even bring IRS filing instructions to life. He's is not just a narrator but a fine actor which greatly enriches all his narrations.
This is the most humorous and warm book of the five. Ty's and Zane's experiences and interactions here are the hallmark of the entire series.
The writing and the narration come together to create the perfect storm. This is not to be missed if you are a fan of this genre.
I'm still listening to this one but had to write a comment even before i finished
I love Ty and Zane characters. The author did a great job of building their characters well
The voice of their boss was horrible and hard to listen to. I got used to the voice of Ty in the first 2 books, this one, I'm not so fond of. Wish it could have been the same narrator
Yes, absolutely! I love the fact that Ty and Zane could show there affection in public without recriminations.
The scene where Ty is sitting in front on Zane on the lounge chair on deck rubbing him.
When Ty told Zane that he loved him.
I have recommended this book to others. I've loved this series from book one. Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban rule this genre!
I can't possibly decide which character is my favorite. I want to be Zane and sleep with Ty. Excellent romance and excellent mystery. There is nothing about this series I don't love.
I have listened to Sean Crisden's reading before. This man's voice is so sexy! A perfect amount of masculinity without sounding forced or phony. I will be searching for more audio books narrated by Crisden.
I cannot wait for the next one to be published I intend to buy the series in every format!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Ok... I totally loved Sean Crisden as a narrator, but I did not like his italian accents. Horrible Crisden...
This book had its funny moments, nothing like book 1 and 2... but this book is need to show the progression of Ty and Zanes relationship. Ty and Zane both are in love with each other, but neither say it, but well, they are dudes and they are FBI Agents... so they don't need to, or so they think. I loved the "I am in love with you" part.. i wanted to cry cry cry..but since Ty and Zane were locked up in a jail cell on a boat.. and couldn't canoodle... We got no smexing during the I love you moment. **Sad Face**
The case was kinda dumb for Ty and Zane I think, but this is the kinda stuff that happens to them...so i guess it does make sense...
I just want these two to realize they are in love with each other... O M Gush Gush!!!
I LREADY HAVE LISTENED TO IT AND I WILL AGAIN
Ty and Zane!! I love both of them and how they feel about each other...
Ty and Zane of course that's why I listen!!
I hope 5 and 6 become audiobooks also PLEASEEEEE!!
Yes because the story is brought to life before your ears, lol. I have to admit, I've become a bit lazy because of audibles!
It has to be when Ty tells Zane how he feels about him.
Has to be Ty hands down
Yes! I'm a big fan of this series.
This series is great, no one will be disappointed.
Yes, I feel this series works even better on audio than in print/ebook. When I first read the series, I didn't really buy into Ty and Zane's romance (at least initially), but hearing the series makes it more real. And, Sean Crisden makes the characters super sexy!
This is the first I've heard, but I really enjoyed his narration. In fact, I was surprised to read the other reviews complaining about his interpretation of the characters. I enjoyed his narration far more than the narration of the first two books in the series, which were narrated by Sawyer Allerde. Although Allerde did a good job, I don't feel that he differentied enough between Ty and Zane, whereas Crisden gives each character a distinct voice. I also didn't hear any sort of Yogi Bear impersonation, but maybe that's because I didn't watch that cartoon enough to have a real sense of which chracter might have a Yogi bear voice.
