Armed & Dangerous Audiobook

Left alone in Baltimore after his unpredictable lover bails, Special Agent Zane Garrett takes his frustration out on everything in his path – until he is ordered to Chicago to back up an undercover operative. When he gets there, though, he finds himself face to face with his wayward partner, Special Agent Ty Grady. They have to deal with the uncertainty lingering between them while they work to retrieve their intended mark, a retired hit man and CIA wet-works operative named Julian Cross.

Ty, once a Marine and now an FBI hotshot, has a penchant for being unpredictable, a trait Zane can vouch for. Zane is a man who once lived for his job but has come to realize his heartbreaking past doesn’t have to overshadow his future. They’re partners, friends, lovers, and the go-to team for unusual cases. With Cross and his innocuous boyfriend, Cameron Jacobs, in tow, Ty and Zane must navigate the obstacles of a cross-country trek, including TSA pat-downs, blizzards, their uncooperative prisoners, CIA kill teams, a desperate lack of sleep and caffeine, and each other.

Ty and Zane are determined to get Julian Cross to DC in one piece, but it’s starting to look like it might be the last thing they do.

This is Cut & Run Series Book 5 – the sequel to Divide & Conquer

This series has really started to grow on me.  I’m loving the narration and listening to Ty and Zan through Sean Crisden’s voice.  I’m very disappointed that, at this time, book six and seven have not been done in audio yet.  I thought it was very well done.  I love this series enough to go back to just reading, and hope that the audio will come soon.

I really like Julian and Cameron. Julian is a former CIA agent that Ty and Zane are being asked to bring in to the FBI for questioning.  Cameron is his lover.  They are both great characters and really help to make the story one of my favorites of this series.  All four of them, Julian, Cameron, Ty and Zane all work off each other in this book to keep things very interesting.

There is a great twist at the end that is not expected.  We don’t know who the real villain is until the author wants you to know.  It really kept the suspense going.

Favorite quote: “Glock, paper, scissors. I win.” ~ Ty.

I love that Julian has two cats named Smith and Wesson.  They are very large cats and hate most people, but they took a liking to Ty.  Even Cameron can’t pick them up, but they snuggle up to Ty like they’re kittens.

If you enjoy cop style suspense novels with some romance to them, then you should give this series a try.  Even if you’ve never read a m/m romance before, you should still give this a try.  I hope that isn’t what is keeping you from reading this series.  It is a great suspense cop style story that just happens to have two male leads that are lovers.

Armed & Dangerous is the best book in the series so far, though Stick & Stones was a closed second for me.  I wish the next two books were available in audio.  Not sure why they stopped the audios are wonderful, or at least books three, four and five were.  I didn’t like the narrator for books one and two.

  1. I’ve heard really good things about this series! Thanks for the review 🙂

    • It is a wonderful series. If you’re new to m/m, it is a great series to start. Ty and Zane are wonderful. The narrator for books three through five is really good. I was not a fan of one and two, but there have been others who did like him too.

  2. I wish book 6 & 7 was on audio! I’ll just have to read them.

    • I know, me too. Sometimes it takes the self published books longer to get to audio because the authors have to pay out of their own pockets. I hope that by getting more people to buy books one through five, Ms. Roux will get more books done.

      I wonder if it is cheaper for them to do multiple books at once than doing them as they release?? Maybe she will do three or four at once. Fingers crossed.

  3. This sounds good, and I like that it is romantic suspense, I think I would enjoy this as an audio listen. Off to price out book one!

    • There is a ton of suspense in this series. If you like romantic suspense, than this is a must have. It was suggested to me for a long time and I kept putting it off. I wish I had just listened and started sooner.
