Cut & Run Review

Goodreads Description

A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case.

Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He’s cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he’s paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it’s hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliché: total opposites, good cop-bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer.

Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again – this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer’s knife.

My Review

I really enjoyed this book, as a whole. The plot was good, I thought (even though I knew from the beginning who the “bad guy” was). I especially liked the killer’s pattern, when they eventually figure it out. Also, the relationship between Zane and Ty is very exciting, because you never know what’s going to happen when they’re together; will they punch each other or kiss each other? I find that a lot more interesting to read about than some other romances I’ve read recently.

The one thing that really bothered me for the first chapter (after that the plot was too interesting for me to care) was the constant POV shifts. There seemed to be a lot of shifting between Zane and Ty’s POV without a break to let the reader know it was coming. Sometimes it happened with each new paragraph. I tend to find that very confusing. I like getting to know each character, but when the author uses chapter breaks to make it flow well.

Other than that, I really enjoyed this book, and I hope to get through my TBR pile soon so I can get my hands on the next one in the series.
