I had a really hard time even finishing this one. Too many improbabilities and a contrived set-up for their assignment meant that I was never able to suspend my disbelief to get into the story. ( )

Fish and Chips is the third installment in the successful Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux Cut and Run series. In this episode of the series, Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are back on the job in Baltimore and trying to settle into their relationship. These two dynamic and interesting men have their work partnership down, the personal relationship is the one that worries them.

As they feel their way around how to establish an ongoing relationship and love life, the Bureau sends them off undercover on a Christmas Caribbean cruise. Their assignment is to impersonate two out and proud gay married men, Corbin and Del Porter who are part of an international smuggling ring. Ty and Zane are two men used to assignments that require a lot more action from them. Sitting around the pool portraying two wealthy gay men forces the two of them to examine their relationship as their assumed personalities begin to affect the way they treat each other in private. Ty starts to worry about how little he knows about Zane's past, while Zane discovers a softer, more sensitive depth to Ty.

Still the couple faces several perils on this assignment with aplomb while struggling to figure out each other. There are some real trust issues here. Ty and Zane will face down mountain lions and inject themselves with drugs they expect to kill them, but neither can come forward and say, "I love you." They spend a great deal of their time on this assignment second guessing the other's feelings. Not being able to trust what's coming out of the other's mouth places both Ty and Zane in some hazardous situations.

At this stage in the series, Urban and Roux have two very strong characters that area so realistically evolved that they have personal traits that conflict with each other. This richness of character does not often occur with fictional characters. I very much like Ty and Zane and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of their story.

Book description
Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett are back on the job, settled into a personal and professional relationship built on fierce protectiveness and blistering passion. Now they’re assigned to impersonate two members of an international smuggling ring—an out-and-proud married couple—on a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean. As their boss says, surely they’d rather kiss each other than be shot at, and he has no idea how right he is.

Portraying the wealthy criminals requires a particular change in attitude from Ty and Zane while dealing with the frustrating waiting game that is their assignment. As it begins to affect how they treat each other in private, they realize there’s more to being partners than watching each other’s backs, and when the case takes an unexpected turn and threatens Ty’s life, he and Zane will have to navigate seas of white lies and stormy secrets, including some of their own.
