    2. REVIEW COMPLETED AUGUST 12, 2012"Want to go to West Virginia and risk life and limb with me?"Zane smirked and gave a single nod. "Sounds like fun."From the blurbFrom the mountains of West Virginia to a remote Texas horse ranch harboring more than just livestock and childhood memories, Ty and Zane must face their fears--and their families--to overcome an unlikely enemy and bring peace back into their newly shared world."Had a gay bull I had to sell last year. That was a damn nuisance. Gay son? Th [...]

    3. Zane slid his fingertips across Ty’s lips. With a blink, his expression changed, and he was gazing at Ty with such longing and love that he might as well have screamed it at the top of his lungs. “I wouldn’t change it,” he rasped. “Any of it.”This book made me go through a rainbow of emotions. Anticipation, anxiety, shock, sorrow, happiness, fear, hate, love, swooning (is swoon an emotion? anyway, I did it constantly), I cried happy tears, I cried sad tears, and then when I reached t [...]

    4. Okay, this one is my new favorite! Loved everything about this one! Especially loved the boys going to Texas, learning more about Zane and his family and his past. Very action packed, that last 20% or so was pretty intense. Things are so good for Ty and Zane I'm scared to keep reading.I just know shit is going to hit the fan. Also found it pretty cool that the author visited an exotic animal sanctuary 20 miles from where I grew up.I should go say hi to Barnum! Or not! :)

    5. It's official: I have a new favorite book in the Cut & Run Series!“I love you,” Ty said out of the blue, his voice almost sing-song.Zane laughed. “You’re drunk.”"I loved you before I was drunk." I've had a rough time trying to figure out how to write this review Truth is - I fucking LOVED this book Problem is - all of the things which made this particular installment of the Cut & Run Series so successful are massive spoilers, so I'll have to break my review down in a new way:Fi [...]

    6. This was absolutely, at least to me, the best one in the series! THE BEST! I don't remember when was the last time I laughed so hard while reading a book. I always loved the humor between Ty and Zane but in this one I was laughing from the first page and I don't think I even stopped til the end! I loved every f***ing page! And I didn't want it to end, no no! But as I was reaching to the end, as much as I was dreading to finish it, because that meant no more Ty and Zane til april and no more laug [...]

    7. 4.5 starsFinally. All that was good about Ty & Zane, that had been trapped in decent, but sometimes confusing, overwritten, or outlandish stories to date, finally made it's way to one AWESOME book."Stars & Stripes" is my favorite of the Cut & Run series and I feel it rewards the faithful readers and was like a BIG HUG to Ty & Zane fans everywhere. FINALLY the series lived up to its potential! Forget tigers. Forget Texas. Forget bitchy moms. Forget crazy grandfathers. Forget every [...]

    8. Favorite Quote: “Oh Jesus Ty. Are you okay?”Ty closed his eyes again. He tried to speak, lips barely moving.“What?” Zane asked as he leaned closer.“I hate Texas.”If I had to write a one sentence review of this book, I’d probably say, “Ty wears a Stetson while doing dirty deeds to Zane.” Is there really anything else you need to know? Seriously, some hot cowboy sex takes place in this book.I think we are in such a great place in this series. Ty and Zane are in love, and I can’ [...]

    9. Okay, this one. This one is the one. My absolute FAVORITE in the series, no doubt about it!!!I'm having a hard time figuring out how to write a coherent review for Stars & Stripes, because I just finished it, my emotions are all over the place and I'm still grinning like a damn fool *heavy sigh* Okay here goes nothingWarning: This review may contain unmarked spoilers, so read at your own risk!Ty & Zane have been enjoying a few months of peace and quiet, falling into a pleasant routine. T [...]

    10. 4,7 SWEET SWEET SWEET SWEET SWEET TIGER STARS!!!Stars & Stripes was the sweetest sequel of the whole series for me until now. Everything here, absolutelyEVERYTHING was sticky like honey!My number one - Barnum, a Bengal tiger with a floppy ear from Exotic Animal Sanctuary, Texas. Is it possible not to fall hard for this sweetie?!It is why Ty did! Lucky Ty, it was mutually!What do we have here?♥ Texas! The reason why Zane had to come back home was not very pleasant, but- I can't help myself! [...]

    11. Stars & Stripes by Abigail Roux is the sixth in a gay romance series. In my review of the fifth book, Armed & Dangerous, I talk a little more about why I was hesitant to pick these books up but did anyway. I also talked about my Abigail-Roux-probably-ought-to-be-scared-of-me-because-I’m-such-a-rabid-fan-level of obsession. Seriously, y’all. There are no words for how much I LOVE THIS SERIES, OMG.So, Abigail Roux had a co-writer for the first four books, but I am definitely a huge fan [...]

    12. Posted onUnder the CoversJust when I thought I couldn’t love this series any more than I already do, Roux gives us a fantastic, heartfelt, yet adventure-filled ride with STARS & STRIPES! This book blew my mind from beginning to end. Just 30 pages into this book, Roux had me laughing out loud and also crying with the amount of heartbreak. If there is one M/M couple out there who has my heart, it’s Ty and Zane. The trials and tribulations they have experienced by being together are finally [...]

    13. I was originally going to give this 5 stars but then I read the next in the series and it was just so amazing and a total 5 star for me that I had to drop my rating for this one to 4 stars . logical - maybe not?? I really should do my reviews straight away after reading a book but I was traveling and just had not time.Ty is just too cute. I love him. Love Zane too.Like Zane's dad. Not too keen on the Mom.Onwards and upwards to read the next book

    14. Another amazing read. Each time I finish a book in this series, I think it's the best one yet, and this one is no different. It just keeps getting better and better. Since I don't do re-reads, I am going to be crying some serious tears when I finish this series and say good bye to Ty and Zane.

    15. Review originally posted here: thebookpushers/2012/08/15/This book was one of my most anticipated reads of 2012, so you can imagine how excited I was to get it a week early. Ty and Zane are two of my favorite fictional characters, and probably one of my favorite series of all times, and this installment was AMAZING.Ty and Zane have had a few months of leisure, but a phone call from Texas and Zane’s family throws off their balance. After a pit stop in West Virginia, Ty and Zane both head down t [...]

    16. 5++++++++++ stars for Ty and Zane.Loved it even more.“I love you," Ty said out of the blue, his voice almost sing-song. Zane laughed. "You're drunk." "I loved you before I was drunk.”Zane's dad is epic“Had a gay bull I had to sell last year. That was a damn nuisance. Gay son? That don't cost me nothing.” March 2017Im done listening to the audio book This was sooo good highly recommended for everyone fell hard for Ty and Zane again.So far this is my favourite book. I love the growth in T [...]

    17. This is seriously the best series ever (this and Rock chick ofcourse). Loved it !!! Will continue reading on. I am getting a bit nervous because of the reviews on the next 3 books in the seriesbut I need Ty and Zane so I'm gonna be brave and jump right in there.

    18. Book #6 and 5 Huge Stars for another wonderful story in this amazing series about my favorites guys; Ty & Zanea somewhat delayed mini review 19 August 2013I loved and was completely engrossed by Ty and Zane as always. These two guys and their amazing adventure and growing love story is of the very best quality. Unbeatable good in this M/M genre. Just one book left to read then it will be a long, painful wait.This sixth part contains a lot of cuddling, steam and beautiful endearments. It's ab [...]

    19. This is the best m-m book I've read or listened to. It was so sweet, romantic and full of all those things a romance novel should make you feel.Ty and Zane are coming into their own in their relationship and this book took us on that journey with them. Gone are the two detectives who were hesitant to communicate with each other. Instead, we have two lovebirds who freely say "I love you". They share tender gazes, touches and other connections that make it easy for those who know them can see that [...]

    20. WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! I’m TOTALLY OVER THE[image error][image error]FOR THESE BOYS!!!!! Probably my favorite in the series so far!!!!Stars & Stripes starts out back in Baltimore, after several months of blissful quiet for Ty and Zane. They have settled into a routine at work and have been living happily together in Ty’s townhouse. Well at least Ty was happy. Since they were still cat-sitting for Julian Cross' giant evil cats, Smith and Wesson, Zane was never quite at ease. Surpris [...]

    21. “But I’m tired of easy. Like you said, we deserve better.” Now this is the book that I have been waiting for in this series. Ty and Zane was so romantic and beautiful together, and it made my heart so very happy!!Ty and Zane have been living together very happily, and work seems to be quite stress free. But of course this could not last for them, and emergency calls from their families throws their lives back into turmoil. Not only will this be the first time that Ty meets Zane’s parents [...]

    22. ***5 stars for the audiobook version*** Hmm, should I take it as a sign that my first review in 2017 would be for an audiobook? Maybe I should. And probably you, too, because I plan on listening to more audiobooks this year. ;-)Don't worry, though. I won't bore the pants off you with my reviews for this series, but since the narrator for this book changed again, I just wanted to say how much I loved it. I won't say that J. F. Harding is the best narrator for this series (I loved Sawyer Allerde a [...]

    23. First up, I like this series. I wouldn't keep buying the books if I didn't! But just like the last installment, this one had some believability issues, now they were nowhere as bad as in Armed & Dangerous, but they were still there. So I am going to break down my rating by characterization, plot, pacing and chemistry. The four most important things to me in a novelARACTERIZATIONI love Ty and Zane's characters and their dysfunctional families were a hoot, but as other reviewers have stated, T [...]

    24. Most romance books have an epilogue. It's that bit at the end where it shows the couple a few days, weeks or years later all happy and solid in their relationship, usually with a few cute references to quirky, couple-y things that happened to them in the process of getting together. Things to make the couple (and the reader) chuckle at their previous antics, now happily in the past. Epilogues are like the icing on the cake, the cherry on top: enjoyable, reassuring, but of little substance. This [...]

    25. This is weird. And sad. Never thought I'd give a Ty and Zane story less than 4 stars. It's not that I didn't like the story, though it was way too nice, and easy, and syrupy sweet to be even remotely believable most of the time. Ty's father's reaction? Nah, no way. Zane's Dad? Not either. Ty and Zane themselves? Somebody took them away and left bad copies behind. I want them back!It's like I'm in a mirror-image universe, where Ty and Zane are some kind of earnest, sweet, kind version of themselv [...]

    26. Buddy read with my lovely friends Kelly and Vishous. Thank you so much for reading it with me I had great funI cannot believe how much I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. The sex was hot, the story was hilarious and interesting and it was brilliant to see Ty and Zane's relationship deepen.The fact it was set in Texas with horses, a ranch and Ty in a stetson only added more excitement to the story for me. Now tell me what isn't sexy about that?? :)The humor had me splitting my sides laughing at times. [...]

    27. This was my favorite installment of the cut and run series to date! Ty and Zane are an awesome couple and I loved getting to see them as a happy couple without the whole relationship angst like in the previous books. It was so refreshing to have that and it also made me really fall in love with this book even more.I adore Ty. Always have, probably always will. There's just something about him that draws me to him and makes me love him more and more every book. And I love how he handled Zane's mo [...]

    28. What can I say I still adore Ty and Zane and will continue to read each new book in the series but I think this book stretched the boundaries of reality. I mean, come on, a gay couple coming out in Texas and West Virginia receiving immediate acceptance from most people. That just wouldn't happen. I live in the liberal north east and even still, two guys holding hands in a local bar would turn more than a few heads. This isn't the Village. Don't get me wrong, I think it should be totally commonpl [...]
