Recently I started the Cut & Run series by Abigail Roux. It was my first foray into m/m romance. I read Lover At Last several weeks ago however there was so much going on that it didn’t feel like a true m/m. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a m/m romance but let me tell you, I am completely hooked. I am obsessively in love with Ty and Zane. Any given moment I can switch which one I love more but I have come to realize I adore them both. There is no question that I need more of this. I will try to explain what I love about the Cut & Run series and maybe y’all can give me some other similar books to try?
Two Alpha Males
In most of my romance novels there is a dominant partner and a much less dominant partner. I have grown quite used to that formula. With Ty and Zane, there is no following of that formula. Both of them are alpha to the extreme. They are FBI agents and need to be strong and dominant to do their jobs and ultimately to challenge each other. When one of them bottoms and is still dominant from the bottom, gah…I get all shivery just thinking about it. At any given time they can switch who will be the forceful one. I love this! I love watching the struggle of two strong personalities try to mesh.
Oh, these two. They are so messed up in the head. Each of them have done things that make me bang my kindle on the nearest hard surface. I love angst. I need this angst. For some reason I cannot read a book about happiness and smooth sailing. What is the fun in that?
This one is obvious. I am new to this genre. I have read nothing. I do not even know popular authors or themes. Who is good and who should I avoid? Give me the good, bad and ugly.
Holy smokes, people. Maybe, once again, it is because I am new to the genre but these sex scenes are combustible. Or maybe that is just me after I read them.
If possible, I would like some background plot also. I don’t know if that is very specific to Ty/Zane since they are a series but I like reading them have a life outside of each other. I like reading them struggle to mesh a very difficult relationship with their lives. And I love reading everything they do turn into a giant attack of fubar.
So those are the things I would like to read more about. I don’t know if Ty/Zane are one of a kind (I suspect this might be the case) but I would like to try some other books to find out. I appreciate any help you can offer!!
