THIS REVIEW CONTAINS QUOTES BUT I DON'T THINK THEY ARE REAL SPOILERS


I've said this before about the Cut & Run series; This is what I read male/male romance for.

"What?" he asked. "Y'all didn't know they was sweethearts?"


THE STORY

For me, this was a transitional book in the series. I'm not going to summarize this book but I will tell you Abi did something here that I wish authors would do more often; she allowed an entire book to focus on relationship and character building while keeping an engrossing plot in the background. I wouldn't want that in every book but when a series has been going for a while I think it's great to take a time out and focus on the world and pull it all together. Abi did this here, perfectly.


Having someone to be proud of was in indescribable feeling.


THE WRITING

Abi's hilarious sense of humor was everywhere in this book, making this sweet romance light and enjoyable and most worthy of a re-read, just to be sure you don't miss any of those pun-y references.

"Maybe spend a night in Beaumont."

Plus, this woman can write romance. Whew! Hot, hot romance.

"Hot is hot, baby."


If I have to criticize anything here it would be the uncomfortable (for me) use of the word, "baby". It was used just a little too often, but I'm sure that's a personal preference.

I flew through this book, it was so well put together. The editing was terrific and made for a zip-fast read with no slow spots, just perfect pacing.

THE CHARACTERS

Ty - "Ty's tanned face and a day's worth of stubble was possibly the most beautiful thing Zane had ever laid eyes on..." We love Ty 'cus he's a big, dangerous, sexy kid. And man, can he, um, Ride!

Zane - "I'm going to start calling you Tytanium." "That's clever." "I know." We love Zane because he loves Ty. He's darker, more contemplative and damn sexy.

Harrison - "Well, then. I guess we can't all be perfect." I really like Zane's father and I'm glad he has his horses.

Beverly - I don't even want to think about her!

Anne - Love her!

Chester - Genius!


The romance in this book is delightful. The action is quick and fun to read. The sex is as hot as Texas in July and Ty and Zane are so beautiful together that they'll stay with you forever. I love, love, love 'em.

"You sounded like you needed me."
