Fish & Chips (Cut & Run #3) - Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban

Another great installment in the series! A bit complex with everything that is going on there. I remember the first time I read it I actually didn't understand ANYTHING even at the very end since I was mixing all the people and schemes together. This time around I think I got it, maybe ;) Yet what's important is not WHO is trying to kill Ty and Zane - it's the both of them together, this time REALLY together as they are on a two weeks cruse pretending to be a gay married couple - Corbin and Del Porter. It's the first time Ty an Zane get to really act on their feeling (mainly on their attraction) between them in public which is strange for both of them in the beginning but as the days goes by, it becomes quite natural. It was sweet and endearing. I also think since they were in public and were suppose to act as Corbin and Del they were more loving toward one another, expressing themselves and less bartering and bickering at one another. Well, don't think there is none of that! They DO have quite a lot of that when they are in private! 

There's a lot going on in this cruse. Corbin and Del have been dealing with stolen art, they got caught right before the cruse was suppose to set sail and the FBI wanting to catch not only them but their accomplices - Lorenzo Bianchi and Vartan Armen - send Ty and Zane to try and figure who these people are. Luck has it that this is the first time these people meet face to face and since Zane has mostly the same body build as Corbin and there is also some sort of resemblance between Del and Ty - it's the "perfect" opportunity to try and get a hold of Bianchi and Armen. 

Yet as they had only a few minutes to talk to the REAL Corbin and Del they are pretty much in the dark to what's going on and as someone keeps trying to kill them and they can't make any findings (including finding their support team on the cruse) things get more complicated than they could have imagined. 

This book was SO MUCH FUN! There were so many funny moments in it starting with Ty having to get a full body wax and bleaching his hair to resemble Del Porter and not to mention Ty learning that his part in this one is looking pretty since as it seems Corbin is the brains in the operation.. 

There is also a progress in the relationship between Ty and Zane mostly because they are SUPPOSE to act on their feelings and as they do that it's more obvious to the both of them how much they mean to one another. Well, Ty already knows he is in love with Zane but he is sure that Zane DOESN'T feels the same way.. Zane is confused about his emotions not wanting to admit to himself even his feelings for Ty. The ending was sweet. I really loved that there was a clear change in them after the cruse. They started this book being a couple but it mostly felt they were protective of one another and were exclusively fucking, yet when the book is finished they feel like a REAL couple. Even if they have a long way in front of them to dealing with what the emotions they both have mean and how to act on them. 

Unlike the previous two books in the series which were narrated by Sawyer Allerde - this one (and the next two) are narrated by Sean Crisden. While I thought that Sean did a much better impression of the side characters in this book, I didn't especially like Zane and Ty's voice and specifically that there wasn't a difference to be noticed between the two of them..

Great book! :)
Loved the fact that these get to act at being themselves while being someone else :D

The characters on the boat and everything happening was a little confusing (I'm wondering if I get all the details in the end..)

Loved how Ty and Zane got to really be together and see how they fend on their own. Ty was amazing with how he reacted to Zane - now knowing how much he loves Zane. I loved the scene in which he told him he loves him. free falling, isn't it?
