Only a few weeks have passed since Ty and Zane had their little mountain adventure. By all rights, they should be ready for some quiet time, yet these two are ready for another case. Only they never expected their next case would mean they would be going undercover as a married couple.

First things first, this is part of the ongoing Cut & Run series, a series which needs to be read in order. That being said, fans of this series will love the new book, Fish & Chips. Ty and Zane are great characters with more than their share of issues, yet they fit together perfectly and the reader can’t help but like them. Their connection is a strong one and one of the things I loved about this new addition to the series was the way the authors showcased the men’s growing feelings for each other. More than once I wanted to scream “Just tell him ‘I love you’ already”. Watching as Ty and Zane have to play a married couple, who is known to be openly gay, was great as it was, I believe, the one thing that helped move their relationship forward.

The mystery the men find themselves involved in comes with many twists and turns, all of which help hold the reader’s attention. Although the men find more danger than planned, there are also a few moments that will have you chuckling.

I strongly urge fans of M/M stories to give these authors and this series a shot. You will not be disappointed.
