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.

    "What not to love!"
    What made the experience of listening to Divide and Conquer the most enjoyable?

    I just love these books and reading about Ty and Zane's growing relationship is fabulous!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to pick between the 2, but I do like the stoic Zane


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

    Yes, not usually my favourite, but he did very well here and in Fish and Chips


    Any additional comments?

    Please add the rest of the books to Audible... although I have the whole series, it is always good to walk while listening to them banter.

    Story
    "I'm hooked"
    What did you love best about Divide and Conquer?

    I loved the interactions between Ty and Zane! Its great to see in every book how far their relationship has progressed. Its so typical guy. I like that we have two strong gay males instead of the typical macho/twink combo in a lot of mm books. The mystery/plot is an afterthought to me because its Ty and Zane that I'm interested in. Although this isnt blatant erotica, there is still plenty of hot, hot sex!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux ? Why or why not?

    Yes! Ty and Zane, baby!


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

    Yes. Its pretty much what I expected-hes good


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did lots of laughing due to Ty's bluntness and there were some tears of joy and sadness


    Any additional comments?

    When are the next books going to audio? I really can't wait for Armed and Dangerous. It love reading but hearing the characters outloud is fun

    Story
    "Keeps Getting Better!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favorite?

    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!


    If you could take any character from Divide and Conquer out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    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.

    "Best of the 4!!"

    I think this is the best of the 4 books. Not quite as creepy and more about the characters relationship. I can't wait for the next book!!!

    "9 hours for this?!"
    Would you try another book from Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux and/or Sean Crisden?

    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.


    If you’ve listened to books by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux before, how does this one compare?

    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.


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

    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.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If the pace was a bit quicker and the ending made more sense.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Divide and Conquer Made for Reading."
    Would you listen to Divide and Conquer again? Why?

    This story is the 4th of the series and well worth listening to again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ty and Zane because both were still learning about their relationship.


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

    I've listen to the whole series and he's done a good job for them.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A City in Peril, Two men can make a difference.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Can't wait for book 5"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Divide and Conquer to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.

    Story
    "ANOTHER HOMERUN IN THE CUT & RUN SERIES"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


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

    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.


    What does Sean Crisden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.

    "M/m romance yuck"

    I bought this book with no clear warning about m/m "romance". Yuck! Buyers beware. I have children in my home and don't want them seeing or hearing this.
