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.

    This story is another sweet, yet heart-pounding, episode in the tale of Ty and Zane.

    Story
    "Nice Prequel to carry you on to the series"
    Would you listen to Sticks and Stones again? Why?

    Getting different views on Ty and Zane from the initial story. You really see them outside their jobs and as people


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't really choose between Ty and Zane because they are so interwoven together as the series goes on. Both are given great life by the narrator


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

    Both


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

    I think the entire book works and keeps moving so well you can't pick just one because once something happens and you go "Wow!" The next plot twist or explosion happens and you're off on the next adventure!


    Any additional comments?

    I've had these books in my library for years but just now decided they needed some attention in the form of reviews so these are being written 3 years on and having been listened to over and over again

    "Great Comeback!!!"

    I have to say that I was only mildly entertained by the first book, but the character development and story line continues to get better. So call me a sucker, but I give this 5 stars and I will buy the next book in the series. Love these guys!!!

    "Good story"

    The story does tend to lag in places. However, I found it to be quite enjoyable. It could use a bit more hawtness but the story makes up for some of what is missing. I will be getting the next one.

    Story
    "If there was a plot here, I could not find it."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Book 2. Ah, come on. Lost in the woods!!?? Come on boys. Where's the crazy murder investigation a' la book 1?

    This story actually made me like 'Cut & Run' more. Unlike the first in the series, this book had absolutely ZERO plot. I did like the page time some new characters got. But let's face it, Ty and Zane's relationship didn't move forward at all. If this is the constant struggle of the series where No one can say "those 3 words" than it's going to get pretty exhausting.

    I hate to say this but... I wish the writing matched how much I enjoy the main characters. I could be convinced to read book 3... but so many things need to happen.

    And I can't deal with the almost "off page" romance. Ty and Zane's love is portrayed at explosive, and it's just not written on page as such. And while one tedious scene in the woods was quite nice, it does not an m/m book make.

    Sawyer Allerde's Ty just does not match up to the Ty in my head. And now with Ty's brother having the same goofy voice, it's even more off putting.

    I will probably move on with the series in audio format, especially since there is a new narrator in upcoming books.

    2 1/2 stars.

    "💖💖💖💖💖"
    Any additional comments?

    I still can't believe how much I love this series. And for some reason the 2nd time around is just as good as the first, maybe even better because I know how deeply Zane and Ty care for each other.

    I forgot how emotionally charged this story was for Ty and Zane because they are still building their relationship on trust, kick a$$ action, and a mutual grudging respect for each other.

    There is always so much action when these two are together and they are funny as hell!

    Definitely in my top 5 mm romance action reads or audio! 💖

    Love the guys and the storyline and the laughter and just all of it.

    "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.
