Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Can't Wait for #5"

    I feel like these guys are family and I just want to shake 'em and say.... "Get it together!" But their's is a very believable relationship of two men who come from worlds where homophobic standards are imposed. I do have to say that despite that, the end of this one is just out of left field. We need a resolution!

    "Well Done!"

    I happen to love this book. It???s my favorite in the series so far. Personally, Sean Crisden had his work cut out for him being the narrator of a novel that I've loved reading in print. I know every line in this book, know all the jokes and all the emotional scenes, and I've had a mental impression of what these scenes sound like. Sean Crisden doesn't always get it right, but he gets it right when it counts. It must be said that I'm not impressed by his reading of the first quarter of the book. For whatever reason his tone seemed monotonous and frustratingly, his inflections were off. He seemed to emphasize random words in sentences instead of the correct words. Also the voice he chose to use for Nick O was so irritating it borders on being the worst voice I've ever heard assigned to a character. However, his reading of Ty and Zane, and the supporting characters in general, were very well done as usual. The most important scene in the book (you know which one!) was read with a combination of strength and vulnerability, for which Crisden deserves the highest kudos. It may not be Crisden's best, but it's certainly a lovely effort. This is for the most part due to the story that was written. There's no getting enough of Ty and Zane. Urban and Roux makes falling in love breathtaking and sexy, hard to come to terms with, sometimes even painful to bear, and achingly difficult to endure alone. Therein lies the reason why this series is so popular. Although I intensely dislike Cameron as a character in Warrior's Cross, I have every faith in Roux succeeding in her new solo role for the crossover sequel. I will likely buy the next book in the series, Armed and Dangerous, provided Sean Crisden (or someone as talented) continues to read.

    Story
    "I just like these two"

    The authors need a copy editor although this isn't terrible. The narrator frequently comes across as more deadpan than the story warrants (although, thank heavens, he also doesn't act out the heavy breathing) and he doesn't leave space where there is obviously a change in scene, leaving me going back to find out what I may have missed. He does a good job of differing the voices, though; the listener is always clear which character is speaking; and I really like the narrator's voice.

    I've read all of the Cut and Run series, listened to two of them (currently there are four in the series), and like them all. The characters are people; they come across each with their own flaws and issues without the authors reaching for the cheap sympathy card (and I am grateful for it). These two are people I am glad to share the world with, although they are not of 'my' world.

    Great literature it is not, and if erotica offends you, this is not the listen for you. In most cases, the sex adds to the information about the characters and their relationship. Occasionally, it is just fun. And, darn it, I just like the characters.

    "Love unsure, found and secured"
    Where does Divide and Conquer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top of the cut and run series. Their relationship is growing and becoming more than just a wanted desire, it's a living breathing need.


    What other book might you compare Divide and Conquer to and why?

    I haven't listened to many like Divide and Conquer. But for emotional pulls and twists i have enjoyed 'Love means courage' many times.


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

    I love the way Sean performs, only i find i can sometimes link a voice in one book to another book, not that it detracts for me. I have bought books simply because he has read them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    God yes. If I could have I would, how ever I did listen to it over two evening shifts and loved every single minute.


    Any additional comments?

    More please, bring on Armed and Dangerous

    "This is a must buy!!!!"
    Where does Divide and Conquer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Divide and Conquer is done so well that you just have to buy this book. The story itself is awesome, the reading was great, and Zane and Ty are at it again.

    The emotion and feelings that come to light in this book make it an amzing ride. Ty's quirks and Zane's fill every page. I just can't get enough of these two!


    What did you like best about this story?

    There are so so many great moments! Ty at the softball field, Zane and Ty at the resturant, and the love scenes... cold water, PLEASE!


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

    I am really starting to come around to male readers. I thought this was one of the best so far.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has been marked at one of my all time favs! It has it all! More please More!

    "Can't wait to read the next book!!"
    If you could sum up Divide and Conquer in three words, what would they be?

    Bombs, Hospitals, & Recon-Team


    What other book might you compare Divide and Conquer to and why?

    the ones in the earlier series and because they preceded this one.

    Oh and a book called "Fair Game" is similar but only because the main character used to be an FBI agent and deals with a serial killer and it is an m/m romance/suspense book.


    What three words best describe Sean Crisden’s performance?

    So so. I like the guy who did the first two books better.


    If you could rename Divide and Conquer, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't.. well it could be called Bombs and Trauma.


    Any additional comments?

    I really want them to make the fifth book, "Armed & Dangerous" and "Stars & Stripes" into audio books and soon!!

    "Gold standard for the genre."
    Any additional comments?

    The series keeps improving with every book. The characterization, in particular, was very well done with the two main protagonists (and even secondary characters) being fully fleshed out. I also like when the characters behave logically (well logically for them!).

    "The saga continues...."

    So Book Four in the "Cut and Run" series is finally released on audio. Our two heroes, Ty and Zane, have settled into a relatively blissful domestic partnership, marred only by increasing violence in their city. Working as a team, they throw themselves into the case with their usual dedication....but this time there will be casualties...At the key point of the plot, Ty and Zane turn away from each other, each unable to make the final commitment that will cement their relationship. A threat from the past throws Ty into doubt and confusion, while Zane must wrestle with his own demons, thrown to the surface by a potentially life changing injury. A "Damn, didn't see that coming" cliffhanger only makes you long for Book Five, scheduled for publication in May, though this will be the first written entirely by Ms Roux. A great addition to the series, better than the last, slightly weaker "Fish and Chips". Sean Crisden reads well, though I still miss the original narrator of the first two. All in all, a great title. But Audible, classing this as Chick Lit? Really?
