We Can Still Cut & Run

Cut & Run - Abigail Roux, Madeleine Urban

“Zane was starting to piss him off again. Which was good, he supposed. It meant the urge to lick him all over was passing, at least.”


This book gave me many mixed feelings. I’m afraid it didn’t meet the expectations I had after all the hype, but I would have given it 5 stars just because of the glaringly chemistry between Ty and Zane. They worked so well together. Still, there are some things I’d like to point out:

The Good:

• Zane and Ty were two of the best M/M characters I’ve had the pleasure to stumble upon. I have no words for how well written those two were.

• The snarky, action-wise dialogue had me chucking more than once.

• The sex scenes were not overplayed. I should probably mention that they were also smoking hot.

• The modus operandi of the killer was pretty creative. I’m also a huge fan of a famous author that is key to the plot. So you can imagine I was more than happy to see all the references to him.

• The ending left me practically begging for more. So. Good.


The Bad

• Sometimes I couldn't understand the character’s actions. Sometimes I thought they were just plainly stupid.

Zane drugged his partner while he had a concussion. Did he seriously not expect him to have a reaction to it? What if he were allergic to the formula? He also refused to take Ty to a hospital after the concussion got worse. The hospital might not be safe, but it’s better than getting him into a permanent coma

• I disliked the character development. While it’s always something I welcome in novels, it’s was too unbelievable most of the time. 

Henninger was right. It seemed like Zane and Ty switched brains.

• The crime plot was lacking at best and nonexistent at worst. It seemed a bit too rushed in the ending, and it could have been explored in a better way.

• Stevie Wonder could see who the serial killer was before the revelation.

I’m still pondering on whether I will read all of the books of this series. It’s a really huge amount of books and I don’t think it’s ending any time soon. I’m pending toward “yes” though. Ty and Zane are definitely worth it.


On another subject, I bloody love the fan casting of this book:







Sentence: Smoking hot even though it was confusing at some times. My ovaries were pleased.


Fun fact: This is the book that inspired me to finally buy a Kindle.
