I'm a hopeful cynic.

Fish & Chips  - Madeleine Urban, Abigail Roux Every installment in this series instantly becomes my favourite. I liked the previous book, Sticks & Stones, and this third installment was an even more enjoyable read. I’m getting more and more infatuated with Ty and Zane; they are rapidly becoming my most recent addiction.It’s almost mystifying how these two characters, the dynamics between them and the way their relationship evolves in each book make me ignore a whole bunch of things I would be furious about had this been any other story. Like the fact that they were undercover but they had absolutely no clue who their backup team was, absolutely no way of communicating with them only to find out said team had been locked up in some food store room for almost ten days without anyone finding out, they might be FBI agents but they were seriously underarmed, they had to use public computers to communicate with the Bureau, they were sent there to play happy gay couple without having been provided with basic information on the case (Ty for example didn’t know the man he was impersonating was supposed to speak Italian), and many other plot holes I chose to ignore because, honestly, they didn’t matter. With regard to style, I did notice that in this installment Ty kept kissing Zane languidly just like he kept licking his lips in the first installment, but I enjoyed those kisses too darn much to care. I also must have become immune to the POV shifts because I didn’t notice them at all in this book.The sex was so off the charts hot and so luxuriant I had to pinch myself to make sure I was actually reading about Ty and Zane. What a treat! This installment makes up for all the lack of sex in the previous two books.I loved how the two characters used their undercover assignment and the liberties it gave them to take their relationship a huge step further, not only on an intimate level (e.g. the first real blow job happens in this book) but also as far as caring about each other, or committing to each other or trusting and understanding each other was concerned. I’m anxious to see what happens now that at least one of them has finally decided to admit their true feelings. I may identify more with Zane (and don’t get me wrong here, I absolutely love Ty) but I’ll be seriously mad at him if he doesn’t come clean soon. What is he waiting for? It’s more than obvious he’s head over heels over Ty!Dreamspinner Press kindly provided me with a copy of this e-book through NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review
