Cut & Run Series, Book 4 - a sequel to Fish & Chips
Baltimore is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage, and all law-enforcement agencies, including the FBI, are catching blame. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners.
Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally—throwing the city, the Bureau, and Ty and Zane’s volatile partnership both in and out of the office into chaos. They’re hip-deep in trouble, trying to track down bombers and bank robbers in the dark with very few clues, and the only way to reach the light at the end of the tunnel together requires Ty and Zane to close their eyes and trust each other to the fiery end.

I would absolutely recommend this to a friend, as you are able to immerse yourself in the characters from the very start. The plot is good, the characters are flawed and vulnerable, while demonstrating that they can be strong when they need to be.
Zane is my favorite character because despite his addictive personality and all the baggage he carries with him, he remains devoted to Ty and loves him regardless of what happens. He approaches things analytically and maintains a calmer demeanor, for the most part, than his partner.
Zane remains my favorite and Sean Crisden is perfect to read this series; I did not like the reader of the first two at all!
It would be Zane because I believe there is so much more to him than we've seen so far; especially where his family is concerned. I think his demons are just as scary as Ty's.
Yes, with reservation. In other words, I would try them again but I wouldn't jump at the chance. I invested a lot of emotion into this one and I was not so pleased with being left dangling in the wind, so to speak.
This one was very fleshed out. The characters felt very real. It was a bit 'too' fleshed out at times, focusing more on the scene than the characters who I was more interested in.
I have heard Sean Crisden before (on the book before this one). The book before this "fish and chips" he did well but in this book, he OWNED the characters. He was VERY good.
If the pace was a bit quicker and the ending made more sense.
Overall, I fell in the love with the characters just like other fans, but I don't need to spend so much time on what a building looks like, etc. etc. The ending was a big let down considering the build-up. The author(s) exudes intelligence in their writing. it's very well done. But there wasn't much intimacy in the 9 hours. The book is well done but the ending left little to desire. But to each is own.
This story is the 4th of the series and well worth listening to again.
Ty and Zane because both were still learning about their relationship.
I've listen to the whole series and he's done a good job for them.
A City in Peril, Two men can make a difference.
This book is the 4th i the series and leaves an open ending, which seems to unlikely of being field. One of the authors has decided to take a brake from writing.
I can't honestly say, I've only listened to the audio version. I enjoyed all four books, can't wait for the next one.
Ty & Zane I love how the two characters have developed & changed over the series so far. I find myself smiling & laughing as I listen to the book.
ABSOLUTELY. This series of stories is almost addictive. The characters have been written in such a way that you can imagine their mental and emotional growth throughout the books. Ty and Zane belong together, if they can only get out of each other's way. Now, in the next book Ty is going to have to face his past demons in order to have a relationship with Zane.
This series of books are incomparable. They stand out on their own. I have read many books that deal with m/m romance but this series beats them all. The only books you can compare Divide and Conquer to is other books in the series.
His narration brings the characters to life. His ability to use the different accents; types of voices; and dialects make the story rich. I have listened to other books that Sean Crisden has narrated and I will tell you any book I'm not sure of (if I want to purchase) I get if Sean Crisden is the narrator.
My extreme reaction was to the ending. I was hoping that Ty and Zane had finally worked out their situation, especially with Zane finally admitting to himself and Ty that he loved him/is in love with him .But, I can see how their needs to be a book about Ty facing his past demons and what seems to be a minor case of PTSD from his time in the military.
