My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Cut & Run was my second adventure into this type of novel and it kept my interest. The pairing of Ty and Zane are certainly comical but I have to question why there is always so much anger between the two main characters just like in the first novel I read ([book:Shattered Glass|13420351)? I get that it makes good drama for an intense read, but I thought it was a little too overdone. Ty and Zane get together and separate 4 or 5 times in the course of the 350 page novel and by the last one, I felt like it was just getting to be a routine with them (and not in a totally good way). Fighting is a good thing in a book as it helps the reader develop passion and intrigue, but not when on full repetition.
Despite those initial thoughts, the dialogue is fairly realistic, the characters have many good qualities and the story was strong. It’s easy to guess who the serial murderer is, but I don’t think that was the most important part of the book. I’ll give the author another read but probably not for a bit while I explore this genre for awhile to find the authors I like the most.
