Third in the series; and the best so far
With "Fish & Chips," authors Urban and Roux have really settled into the series, and have produced a sequel that's excellent from start to finish.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Like me, you may have had some trouble with the MCs non-acceptance of the fact that, deep down, they're both really gay and in love with each other. But when the story is as fast, light, and exciting as this one, there's no complaining about the way the co-authors have chosen to handle their characters. And the sex is, as always, blisteringly on-the-mark for these two men. The scene where Ty decides to carry his impersonation of Del Porter, boy-toy to his husband, Corbin Porter (impersonated by Zane,) into their private life, is perhaps the single best sex scene I've read in recent memory.
These books, so far, haven't aspired to being "great lit-ruh-chur." Instead, the authors have targeted the summer page-turner as their goal, and have hit the bulls-eye smack in the center. That two near-invisibility-age (Zane is nearly 40, and Ty is around 35) GFY characters can carry a continuously-evolving series of adventures is a testament to how well-written the authors (Mrs. Urban wrote Zane in the first four novels; and Mrs. Roux has done Ty throughout) have made these two contradictions to everything the LGBT community considers p.c.
This is the first novel of the series that I can recommend completely whole-heartedly. I have made my complaints with the entirety of the first novel, and the first third of the second perfectly plain; so this endorsement is full-throated. (
This is one series that can be enjoyed by the entire universe of m/m romance/thriller readers. Really.

A fun, amusing read!
The escapades of Ty & Zane continue. :) I like these two characters, they're well developed, and I love they way they act with one another.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
And the situations they get themselves into as FBI agents are highly amusing.
I also really enjoy how they're each slowly doing down this path of self-awareness about how they feel about one another.
I can't wait to go out and get the next one (it's out in ebook at the publisher's site, but not here at BN yet).
