Ty and Zane have just come off another explosive case and were hoping for a little downtime.  When Ty takes off, Zane returns to work, where he’s soon called in for one of Burns’ special assignments.   Zane is surprised when he’s met by Ty and the two men soon find they have a lot to talk about.

The latest addition to the Cut and Run series is Ms. Roux’s first solo endeavor and I wondered if I would be able to tell the difference between Armed & Dangerous and the previous books in this series.  While the story did have a different feel about it, the story is no less enjoyable.  In fact, I liked the way Ty and Zane open up with each other in this story. Ms. Roux did a wonderful job allowing these two to express themselves the way they did. 

The author also carries the mystery/suspense aspect of this series very well and I loved the way in which she crossed this story over with another mystery/suspense story of hers.  Seeing Cameron and Julian again was fun and watching Julian clash with Ty and Zane had me laughing out loud more than once.   The action was non-stop, with many twists and turns that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.  There were also many surprising twists that I did not see coming and I am sure they will surprise other readers as well.

Ty and Zane are complex characters, which makes it important for the readers to read this series in order.  With Julian and Cameron showing up as important secondary characters, I would also strongly recommend that you read Warrior’s Cross as well.  Fans of the Cut and Run series should know that there is another book due out soon, but Stars and Stripes will be released by a different publishing company so you may want to stop by the author’s website for that link.
