    Very Good

    Just started reading the M/M genre this year, so I'm no expert by any means. But, I liked this story very much. Julian is a hit man and Cameron is a waiter in a high-end restaurant. Cameron has no idea what Julian does for a living. They start seeing each other and he finds out. Loved Julian's character! I wish Cameron had been portrayed as more self-confident. If you read this and like it, I also recommend Zero at the Bone by Jane Seville.

    Great read

    I found this to be a very entertaining story. It started out as a love story, then around Chapter 4, the action came into play.

    What a great love story

    At first I thought it was just another m/m story. I was so very glad to be wrong. Not quite packed with the sexual power of Mexican Heat, but the powerful love story was the same. Well done.

    4.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog
    WARRIOR’S CROSS is a unique story that displays both the sweetness and bitterness of love. Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban possess a true talent of getting underneath the characters skin and revealing aspects of themselves in a way that further progresses the plot and story. ~ Under the Covers

    Cameron Jacobs considers himself to be a happy man. Waitressing at a restaurant called Tuesday doesn’t cause him headaches on a regular basis but ever since an especially hot, well-dressed man has been coming to dine at the restaurant every Tuesday, Cameron has found something to excite him. Though a few passing words and heated looks are the only things they have shared for a few months, it’s enough to keep Cameron waiting on Tuesday evenings for his appearance.

    WARRIOR’S CROSS is a unique story that displays both the sweetness and bitterness of love. Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban possess a true talent of getting underneath the characters skin and revealing aspects of themselves in a way that further progresses the plot and story. Never once was I bored while reading this and I just happened to finish it within a few hours of starting it. Cam and Julian turned out to be more than I thought.

    Julian Cross keeps his profession a secret for the safety of Cameron. Though I wondered if I would have a problem with him withholding this information from Cam, I found that the author’s choice of not revealing it explicitly and rather showing it was a nice take on it. The first part of the book is dedicated to the slow building romance between Julian and Cam. The time it takes for them to trust each other is important because Julian isn’t the type to simply keep someone the way he does with Cam. The slow build helped me as a reader keep that in mind and then….the action starts!

    Quick and hard, the action and suspense gives this book the last little jolt of excitement and it really made for a fun, engaging read. Since I was so in love with Julian and Cam together, it only made the suspense that much more exciting and I think that was the author’s purpose of the threat, to show just how deep the emotions between Cam and Julian ran, not really for the sake of creating a suspenseful book (though that doesn’t hurt at all either!).

    If you’re a rabid fan of their Cut & Run series, you’ll be thrilled to note that Cam and Julian play a huge part in ARMED & DANGEROUS and if you plan on reading it, it’s nice to have this background information on Cam and Julian already, so read this before book 4 of the Cut & Run series.

    I loved loved LOVED this book and I think a Cut & Run reread is in order now. Highly recommend.

    Not Impressed

    I love all of the Ty and Zane books and think they are absolutely wonderful but I was not impressed at all with Julian and Cameron. I was excited to read it based on the reviews but instead of reading this between #4 and #5 I'm glad I read it after 5. If I had read Warriors Cross before #5 which they were in I would have dreaded them. Perhaps if the characters were given more depth like Ty and Zane I would have liked them better but they seemed kinda stupid and I only really like Alpha men, I know they can't all be but Cameron was to me a bit ridiculous. This was not the book for me.

    A rating....

    My Review:
    A
    I read this book in between books #4 and #5 of the Cut & Run Series because this book is the introduction of the "other" couple in Book #5, Armed & Dangerous. This book introduces us to Cam and Julian and they are the ones being pursued by Ty & Zane in Book #5....at least that's the way that I understand it. It will be really interesting to see how book #5 plays out since I'm pretty sure that I love Cam & Julian just as much as I love Ty & Zane. They had a fabulous romantic story!!

    This is a very different dynamic between the two heroes in this book. Julian is an assassin (assumed because his actual job is never actually revealed in the book). Part of his job has to do with the owner of Tuesdays...a very upscale Chicago restaurant. Cam is in charge of the wait staff at the restaurant and he's been waiting on Julian for months. Julian never says anything...he's just a dark, gorgeous, mysterious stranger who Cam is fascinated with. What he doesn't realize is that the fascination goes both ways. Julian is equally fascinated with him.

    They embark on a relationship, but Cam has no idea what Julian does. He just knows that he only gets to see Julian sometimes two days a week and that Julian is often injured. Julian has told him enough that he knows that whatever he is doing, it's dangerous and if he knew more it could endanger Cam's life too.

    Like I said, this was a completely different dynamic...Cam is a normal guy...not tough, not Alpha. He's a waiter. Julian is as Alpha as they get. Most people are terrified by him, although Cam doesn't see that side of him. I liked this dynamic. It made for a GREAT book and tons of great angst. I liked both these guys and could see both sides of their struggle as they try to make their relationship work. The book completely and totally worked for me. It probably would have worked even better for me if I didn't already know how it plays into the Cut & Run series (knowing that gives spoilers to some events in this book). Even if I wasn't reading the Cut & Run series, I would have LOVED this book! I obviously need to read all the books that have come out by these two authors!

    Backstory worth reading

    This book provides the back story on Ty and Zane's newest adventure and, although not necessary to enjoy the book, is nonetheless a wonderful addition to the group. Indulge yourself with this unlikely and steamy love story.

    This book is very good and I absolutely love the classic story plot. The characters have an immense love for each other as they get to know one another and overall, the story is very thrilling. If you love this novel, I highly recommend 'Zero at the Bone' by Jane Seville, for it is far more exciting and amazing (though this book comes close to it too).

    very good.

    read it twice. it was fun and suspenseful both times - time in between readings was enough that I didn't have instant recall on the ending.

    Really loved this one.

    Not sure why I waited so long to read this but I am sorry I did. It is all I love in a book and more. very similar to Mexican heat and the Zero at the Bone. What's not to love?
