Armed & Dangerous (Cut & Run #5) by Abigail Roux
Cut & Run Series Book 5 - Sequel to Divide & Conquer
Left alone in Baltimore after his unpredictable lover bails, Special Agent Zane Garrett takes his frustration out on everything in his path until he is ordered to Chicago to back up an undercover operative. When he gets there, though, he finds himself face to face with his wayward partner, Special Agent Ty Grady. They have to deal with the uncertainty lingering between them while they work to retrieve their intended mark, a retired hit man and CIA wet-works operative named Julian Cross.
Ty, once a marine and now an FBI hotshot, has a penchant for being unpredictable, a trait Zane can vouch for. Zane is a man who once lived for his job but has come to realize his heartbreaking past doesn’t have to overshadow his future. They're partners, friends, lovers, and the go-to team for unusual cases. With Cross and his innocuous boyfriend, Cameron Jacobs, in tow, Ty and Zane must navigate the obstacles of a cross-country trek, including TSA pat-downs, blizzards, their uncooperative prisoners, CIA kill teams, a desperate lack of sleep or caffeine, and each other. Ty and Zane are determined to get Julian Cross to DC in one piece, but it’s starting to look like it might be the last thing they do.
I know I have alot of favorites when it comes to my reading but this series is top of the top for me. Armed & Dangerous has to be the best book in this series yet, not even sure why just that I felt that I got a better look at each of the MC's and how their mind works, so it explains why in previous books they've done the things that they have. There are times in this series I wanted to scream at the characters not to miss their chance at love or to effing pull their heads outta their asses. But it kept me reading and dammit wanting more.
Before this book I would have said Ty was my favorite of two but in this one Zane became my favorite the way we see his love for Ty, was intense and just plain beautiful. The Cut & Run series has always been exciting and intense action packed story with two FBI agents who happen to fall in love with each other. But Armed & Dangerous brings that Love story to the fore front, makes it intense but romantic too. It was the perfect combination for me. Add in Julian & Cameron from Warrior's Cross (which I also loved) and this is an off the charts hit.
The all consuming love between Ty & Zane I had felt was missing in the previous book I found it in Armed & Dangerous. And OMG the sex scenes, I melted my contacts!!!! I truly felt like I finally got the characters and understood why in previous books they've done some stupid shit LOL. No seriously if you want a story that keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat the entire book, plus an EPIC love story this is the book! And on top of that there's another coming out in August YES! I am bouncing around to that news. I recommend you NEED to read this series and I will just say Armed & Dangerous made me realize why.
