Bitten by the M/M Bug! Cut and Run into My Heart!


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 cliche: 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 Thoughts: Hot and Bothered, but eBook Might be Better... 

I will admit I'm torn on this one.  I need to break it down a bit, especially since I listened to the audio version.  I've decided: Narration, Romance, & Mystery as my points of interest or contention.

 *Meh* Was not great, difficult to tell which character was speaking, but on the flip side he wasn't so bad that it felt like listening to nails running down a chalkboard. Sloppy but serviceable - if only just. I'd probably give it 2♥'s, maybe 2½♥'s on narration.

“I've never made fun of you. Making fun of you would imply that something about you is fun.”

I need a cold shower. Followed up by a cold shower. Maybe Ty and Zane could join me? To quote a line from a Madonna song, "My bottom hurts just thinking about it." (but in a good way...)

“Fuck," Ty finally muttered as they broke another heated kiss.
"Is that a comment or a request?" Zane asked breathlessly.” 

It's exactly how I feel two guys that are very 'alpha' and manyly and braun and FBI agents that are not totally 'out there' to act. Equals parts of wanting to smack their ass and their faces and upside the heads. *Shiver* It was intoxicating. 4½♥'s on this part.

*Sigh* OK, I'll admit, this part kind of blew chunks. And there was much of 'this part'... wasn't nearly as clever as I wanted the mystery to be, and COME ON... I saw it coming a mile away. But, it's the first book in the series, and the man-love made up for so much. I think I need another shower. Scooby has better 'mystery' plots, but I didn't mind the more 'office-like' FBI parts. 2-2½♥'s.

“If I’d been there, I might have been able to do something. But I wasn’t, and I lost them.”

So, by the law of averages, my rating should be lower- but like I said... Ty and Zane sandwich, order up! I'll happily be the spicy mustard of that sandwich, and can't wait to sink my teeth into the rest of the series.

“Evening,” Zane greeted quietly, voice still dark with sleep. He yawned and ran his hand through his hair. The short curls were riotous. “I’m hungry.” “Ugh,” Ty groaned sleepily. “God, you’re worse than a date,” he muttered. “I have to feed you, too?
