Sticks and Stones | [Madeleine Urban, Abigail Roux]

Sticks and Stones

Six months after nearly losing their lives to a serial killer in New York City, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are suffering through something almost as frightening: the monotony of desk duty. When they're ordered to take a vacation for the good of everyone's sanity, Ty bites the bullet and takes Zane home with him to West Virginia, hoping the peace and quiet of the mountains will give them the chance to explore the explosive attraction they’ve so far been unable to reconcile with their professional partnership.

Publisher's Summary

Six months after nearly losing their lives to a serial killer in New York City, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are suffering through something almost as frightening: the monotony of desk duty. When they're ordered to take a vacation for the good of everyone's sanity, Ty bites the bullet and takes Zane home with him to West Virginia, hoping the peace and quiet of the mountains will give them the chance to explore the explosive attraction they’ve so far been unable to reconcile with their professional partnership.Ty and Zane, along with Ty’s father and brother, head up into the Appalachian mountains for a nice, relaxing hike deep into the woods... where no one will hear them scream. They find themselves facing danger from all directions: unpredictable weather, the unrelenting mountains, wild animals, fellow hikers with nothing to lose, and the most terrifying challenge of all. Each other.

    "I am crying I am laughing so hard!"

    A shovel and a cougar! OMG! The grandpa actually sharpens the shovel and everyone in the family think this is normal...

    Ty and Zane are back, and I love how Zane phsyco-ness is shown through in this book. Zane is really just as crazy as Ty is but he is more undercover with his... He is like a closet physco! I love when you meet all of Ty's family and they are all kinda crazy in their own way just like Ty, but they totally repect thier dad to no end... That is just a country thing... I get that. But what tip the cake for me in the book was the cougar... OMG! Out of all people you just know, Ty is gonna get eaten by a cougar up in the mts... SO funny... This was like the worst vaction ever... but it was supposed to be a vacation to help the two crazy FBI agents get back on track b/c they are failing their phy-evals.

    And the wood smex! SUPER HOT!!! I kinda want to see Ty do what he do too!!!!! To bad it was soo dark out there...

    Narration was just as good as book one... Great job..

    "Another winner."

    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.

    "Snakes, Cats and Meow Mix"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I wouldn't recommend if he didn't want to fall in love with the characters and get addicted to the series. I would tell him to start with the first book. This 3rd installment is an introduction to Ty's family, the idiosyncrasies of its members and explains how Ty grew up to the person he was. This is the book where they finally accepted the reality of how much they mean to each other.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love both Zane and Ty but my favorite parts were the psychoanalysis of Zane by Deuce .


    Which character – as performed by Sawyer Allerde – was your favorite?

    He got Ty pretty much as I imagined the character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Ty finally thought to himself that he was in love with Zane.


    Any additional comments?

    I was greatly disappointed that Sawyer Allerde didn't continue on narrating to the remainder of the series. I got used to his performance and he suited the character of Zane and Ty very well.

    "Almost as good as the first..."
    If you could sum up Sticks and Stones in three words, what would they be?

    Wry, masculine, entertaining


    What other book might you compare Sticks and Stones to and why?

    The Body by Stephen King because of the camping and dead people. Also Brokeback Mountain because of all the camping and ruggedness.


    Which character – as performed by Sawyer Allerde – was your favorite?

    I think he does Zane the best, most of the characters are performed well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    *Small spoiler alert* The "I love you" moment.


    Any additional comments?

    Great listen, shorter in length than the first book, but still with a lot of detail.

    "read the other one first ..."

    The authors tried hard but didn't succeed. For me it's neither thrilling nor erotic. Lengthy story and little development so I didn't mind when it was finished. I wasn't aware that it is a sequel, so knowing the first book might help to enjoy this more. Narration was OK but unremarkable.

    "Perhaps the worst book ever written"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not ending every sentence with an unnecessary adverb


    Has Sticks and Stones turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sawyer Allerde’s performances?

    Yes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sticks and Stones?

    Having every sentence start with the name of a character and every sentence ending with an adverb.


    Any additional comments?

    Hard to believe this ever got published.
