Cut & Run - Abigail Roux, Madeleine Urban

This series has been on my radar for awhile but I never really seemed to get around to reading it (other books getting in the way and what-not). I finally decided to dive in and I am very glad that I did.

Cut & Run is the first book in the Cut & Run series. It introduces us to two very different (but equally messed up) FBI agents: Ty Grady and Zane Garrett. The two agents are forced to work together to try and track down a serial killer in New York City, one who seems to follow no specific patterns and has, thus far, eluded the authorities. This killer seems to have insider knowledge and the higher-ups fear that the killer may be someone closer to home. Ty and Zane are brought in not only to work the case but to throw the killer off balance - because who could believe that this pair could honestly work together long enough to get to the bottom of this?

Ty and Zane couldn't be any more different and hate each other on sight. However, trading insults soon turns into something more physical (and then some). The sexual tension between them is palpable and it isn't long before they give into the attraction that has been building between them. However the killer is still out there and now seems to have a personal vendetta against them. The two agents find themselves in the crosshairs and will need to rely on each other to stay alive...

Cut & Run was a wild ride, one I had trouble putting down. The story was engaging and the two leads endearingly broken yet competent and committed to their job. The chemistry between them leaped off the page and I was completely caught up in their story. It wasn't a perfect book by any means, some confusing POV shifts lost me at times (it would sometimes switch from a Ty POV to a Zane POV then to another character sharing the scene) but it was still a thoroughly enjoyable read and I found myself totally immersed. The characters were the strongest part of the book and I look forward to reading more about them in subsequent novels.
