    And this book proves it.I am glad it wasn t smooth sailing for Ty and Zane, something like this was bound to happen, and in the end I think it even helped their relationship.But What this book did to me It was really, really hard to see them fighting and saying terrible things to each other.The angst was awful, there was a lot of it, and as the book went on, it just got worse and worse between them And I just I don t like to read stuff like that.This is my personal problem that has nothing to do with the book, I avoid angst like the plague, and having it here, and so much of it was NOT fun for me TYHe has a secret that comes out and drives a wedge between them.Actually, there are several secrets here.The first one, I don t find it that big of a deal.The second one is actually a good one, but the third is pretty bad.I hope there are no secrets that I skipped ahahhahah Anyway, I understand his point, he just couldn t tell it to Zane, he was afraid how they d end up.That part I totally get.BUT After Zane KNEW the existence of that secret, view spoiler and asked Ty to choose between keeping the secret and being with Zane, hide spoiler

    4 stars Review completed April 4, 2013I really liked the shower scene Ty smacked a hand over Zane s mouth and buried his face against Zane s shoulder His other hand wrapped around Zane s chest He drove his hips against Zane s ass, using Zane s own cum to slick the way, using Zane s body for the friction he needed. Overall Touch Geaux was a fun and entertaining read Make no mistake, however, there is hardly any sweetness to be found in this one They have to deal with plenty of pain due to secrets that will be revealed Hence, Ty and Zane are spending a rather huge part of the plot fighting and arguing No worries though, in the end they like lick love one another again As it was, I especially appreciated the final 15 % of the plot On the one hand, it was thrilling and I liked the action and on the other hand, I m already looking forward to reading the sequel because Ty has been view spoiler recalled to active duty hide spoiler

    Spoiler tags engagedbut mostly spoiler free review I had mixed emotions reading this book On the one hand, c mon, it s Ty Zane And Zane is my numero uno And I unashamedly am one of those who was so happy to have the fluff fest of Stars Stripes I couldn t wait for On the other hand, I was tired of all the speculation I was a bit irritated by what I felt was manipulation ambiguous messages released around the book driving readers insane with trying to guess what would happen And mostly, I was put off by the saga of writers behaving badly.FORGET ALL OF THAT.This story was EXACTLY what needed to happen to this series If readers thought Stars Stripes was going to be TZ s HEA, well, Touch Geaux is the eh, eh, eh not so fast they still have sh t to work through Too many secrets existed between our boys and they all too easily tried to sweep them under the rug in the past Not any Those secrets are coming out and man, there are some painful, heartbreaking scenes between the two Kudos to Abi Roux for her plot twists I would NEVER have guessed that Ty s secrets were what they were And I was unprepared for how it actually could would come between our boys and how much it would hurt But, thankfully, along with that hurt, there was healing Look, this book is at times ridiculous one way over the top motorcycle rescue , at times all over the place wait, who s POV are we on now , and at times eye roll inducing I mean, Ch 1 starts with a Men of the FBI calendar and guess who s in it our UNDERCOVER agent boys puh lease so outrageous But there are some fun parts think A team with special ops, SAS, cops, and FBI good lord my dream come true , some real emotion lies, betrayal, heartache , and BEST of all, we get to know about Ty Zane their pasts, why they behave the way they do, what they really mean to each other The ending was set up to be very obvious But, meh that s this series for you TO ANSWER SOME OF THE QUESTIONS not really spoilers general answers w o the detailbut hidden just in case Is there cheating view spoiler No None Not physical, nor emotional hide spoiler

    LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS Excellent but Oh My God What an ending that was, Abigail Roux I am hoping you have your next book all outlined and planned as the wait is already too long and I need it now Zane muttered How I became anyone s idea of a goddamn pinup, I have no idea Ty looked back at him, blinking innocuously As the doors began to grind open, he smiled You re my idea of a pinup he whispered I have to say that this one has so far been my favourite, it is full of action, angst, marines, cartels, dirty cops, kidnappings, murder and a British Spy all set in the backdrop of New Orleans, where we also see the black magic of Voodoo come into play Oh, and not forgetting our boys foray into the world of modeling, well, only for a charity calendar, but it was funny to see them squirm at the unfamiliar The plot is riveting and played to perfection with twists and turns and revelations I certainly didn t see coming and shocked the pants off me I absolutely loved it In Touch and Geaux we see a different side to our beloved boys, we are used to hot sexy man loving and plenty of snarky banter and the hilarious situations they get themselves into, don t get me wrong we still have the usual hot, panty melting, cold shower worthy sex speaking of showers that scene was sizzling plus some very heart pounding angry sex, but also some beautiful passionate and sensual loving that just had my heart all kinds of soft and gooey However this time we see an emotional, moving and almost spiritual journey to not only understanding themselves on a whole new level, but also each other But that journey is fraught with uncertainties and their past catches up to them and the dark secrets that had been hidden deep and buried, the kind that leave scars on your heart are now revealed and both both Ty and Zane need to bare their souls in order to discover if they can weather the challenges that lay ahead I love you Zane, Ty gasped nothing I ve done will ever change that Zane Ty Moaned, lowering his forehead to Zane s shoulder and flexing his back and hips to keep the wildly arousing rhythm going I need you Zane has spent the last two years with Ty wanting to prove to him he was no longer the drug and alcohol addict, but a man who was worthy of his love and with Ty he was able to battle those demons and was at last finding some peace within, that had evaded him for so long But Ty is weighed down by secrets, secrets that had ripped at his soul, secrets he had never even trusted with his brothers in arms and I would like to say it was a cleansing of the soul, but it was through circumstances out of his control that Ty needed to reveal what he had tried to push to the back of his mind and ignore. Ty had trusted Zane with his life, now he was entrusting his heart and soul, no boundaries to cross or walls to knock down, hoping that Zane would still look at him with love in his eyes, still want him in his life But those secrets and lies were embedded so deep into their lives, it created a doubt that Zane never thought he would feel, especially about Ty.In the past I have always felt a little sad for Zane as he is the quiet stoical loner, he see s himself as a geek and when Ty gets together with the Sidewinder s he is lost, feeling like an interloper However in this book we get a whole lot of recon boys and testosterone charged action and Zane is right in the thick of it, he is included as one of the brothers in arms and it just made me happy to see that particular development I know there are some readers that don t particularly enjoy angst in their books and Touch and Geaux, definitely has plenty of it, which yes, is frustrating however, personally I love it and I don t feel the angst in this book was over the top with the revelation that hit Zane I would be mighty pissed off too and yes if they just take time to talk to each other things would be all lovely and sweet and sensible but come on, in two days they manage get themselves sorted and act like grown ups eventually In real life things are ten times worse they would have needed relationship guidance and counselling for all that shit, which could have gone on for months, real life and people are not predictable and so a little angst for a couple of days, I think is perfectly adult of them, plus I love all that heart pounding uncertainty

    Another magnificent narration from J.F Harding, including a really good British accent for Liam Bell boo, hiss , Spanish for the drug cartel guys from Miami, and Creole for the Louisiana mob I wasn t going to bother downloading the final 2 books from Audible, but as he s narrating it was honestly a no brainer When Zane and Ty were angry at each other, they were really angry with each other , but of course the make up sex was terrific Book Review 5 stars, 5 dancing cheerleaders and yes, even the smilies holding up 10 s This is a picture of how I imagine Ty and Zane so much better than Karl Urban and bloody Eric Bana I didn t think that the author would be able to beat Fish Chips or Armed Dangerous as they were sort of my favourites until now, but she blew them out of the water This book was magnificent, and I couldn t stop reading it Ty, Zane, Liam Bell yes, I even got to like you..sort of , the Sidewinder team, Dick you are a Dick Burnseverything was so much better in this book, the plot was awesome, and yes, there wasn t as much humour or sexbut so what Other reviewers have complained about the fightingthey re always fighting for goodness sake, and the convenient fate storyline which meant that Zane had met Ty when he was in N Awlins with his wife Beckywell, fate is a bitch sometimesbut it is definitely true that you can have met someone a long time ago.and then run into them again years later Happy reading, and just be careful out theresomeone might be out to getcha

    SPOILERS SPOILERS 1.5 rounded to 2 for some parts that were so OTT, I had to laugh, and for 45% to 67% having some good parts The I think about this book, the annoyed I m becoming Take for instance the Big Drama That went NOWHERE Okay, so these guys have been living together for a year or two, Zane is going to propose I have to wonder though about all of this logic Okay, Zane knows Ty has a lot secrets They don t know about each other s past much But BEFORE that gets discussed, he s ready to propose to Ty.The big reveals I don t have time to go into the stupidity of all of those plot points, but sweet Jesus that made Days of Our Lives look like quality logical television However, cast that away for a bit All of that served in many ways to make Ty look even like the perfect man who is a martyr remember, Ty would go back to NOLA for people whereas Zane never would Don t forget dear readers, Zane wouldn t have bought Ty an orchid because he s clearly not the romantic one Don t forget Zane is the weak one and Ty is just doing his duty But I thought the author had something there despite my problems mentioned above I perked up Oh shit, this is going to go somewhere finally But it didn t Zane beats the shit out of him as Ty says he s sorry and drowns his sorrows in whiskey Okay, whatever, I thought some of that was really great It just didn t go anywhere So all that and then what Ty recommends a month apart for Zane to find himself and have a life outside of Ty Again Zane does need to do that But what does the author do She has him do art in his house by himself She has him go to a baseball game by himself It s mentioned he has zero friends yet a coworker asks him to be the best man because that makes total sense Rather than go to the gym he goes and does things by himself What did this all do Then Ty shows up and asks, Are you ready for me to come back At this point I may or may not have wanted to rip my Kindle into tiny shreads What the fuck about Ty s problems Didn t he need to work on shit, too Didn t he Seems to me he did, but oh no, can t have Ty and Zane coming together to work on their problems and trust issues That would even the playing field and be logical No, let s have Zane spend time fingerpainting on his easel and taking long introspective walks so he can ponder his general weakness Bahhh Fuck all that noise The first sex scene was a complete throw away The second one was defintitely the best, although I didn t find it hot I at least felt the emotion surrounding that whole scene The third one I stopped 4x while reading it because I don t need an instruction manual on how to have sex Ty moved hand Zane lifted leg Ty leaned down Boring.The Oddities Ty doesn t grap his weapon when they land in NOLA Okay, he s FBI, he s Recon, he s supposedly going to a city where his friend said they are accusing him of murder, he s got enemies there Why the fuck wouldn t you grab your weapon, dude The flashbacks didn t add much of anything Yeah, we learn of some dude that supposedly changed Ty s life in the military, but the reader didn t really experience that We were told that by the way, there is LOADS of telling in this book The one of Ty in NOLA is what it is It s not needed, and what was the point To show the reader that even when Zane was with his wife nothing would have been stronger than his attraction to Ty The Zane one I have zero recollection of so that should tell you how uber important it is Zane seems pretty slow at times Ohhhh, so waitlet me run this through my brainyour friend said he was accused of murder and we run into him and your friends who are laughing and saying we are celebrating a partyso wait it s party time Yes, Jesus. Also, he wasn t aware Ty was superstitious Since, when He s lived with him how long Didn t he have all kinds of superstitions about baseball etc Comments like Ty s expression remained impassive, which was singularly annoying, since Zane usually read him so well Well, actually, no, you didn t slow ass You sure seemed shocked as hell at all this horrendous betrayal Ty looks at the note that says Liam Was his name Liam Bell Uh, maybe Do NOT get me started on that lemon juice fucking note and all that EXACT moments that needed to happen for that to occur This is the 7th book The 7th Why am I still getting play by play reminders of basic events and characters I don t need a recap every book There is a lot of telling me what Ty would do what Zane would do throught the book The random Nick POV s were distracting For your So few people have ever understood the way I work In here He tapped his chest Thank you for your insight Um, what They know what you looked like If they found out your identity or location, they d come for you, and they d come hard Almost every time Burns has called me for a job, it s been to head them off If this was the case, then why was Zane doing publicity Why was Zane doing that ridiculous calendar It s stated SOCOM is defunct and is now MARSOC To the best of my knowledge, SOCOM is charged with overseeing the various Special Operations Component Commands of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps of the United States Armed Forces MARSOC was started in 2006 and is the Marines Special Forces Command The big fake plan with Liam Yeah, yeah its OTT and not logical, but besides that, can t these fuckers drive out of NOLA The cartel, Ava s hoodoo voodoo Cajun daddy plot, the NIAoh just stop Ty and Zane are there to meet Ava s father at Six Flags Ty worked undercover in NOLA and left after Katrina Ava s father wants all the info Ty had on him Ty says Katrina wiped it out I just can t even with this stupid I mean we did have warning about Katrina People were evacuating before it made landfall I was in New Orleans the Saturday before it hit and I sat in fucking 10 hours of traffic to go 70 miles away B c everyone was fucking evacuating It didn t land till Monday But aside from all that, wouldn t a FBI agent working undercover who had uncovered major corruption with the city s police have backups or have sent or saved the shit elsewhere What is this Wild Things swamp logic The timeline for the books was off in several places There were quite a few typos errors Do Marines going into a cemetary for a shoot out or whatever need an info dump about stuff from the 1700s Zane on a motorcylce John Travolta from Wild Hogs Ok, I m dying of laughter again Ty s reasons and means of spying on Zane for 2 years are never explained or explored in ways they could have been We just get it was my duty and Zane is all aghast because someone disrupted his color organized sock drawer No one is attracted to Zane without either some Ty connection or having twice as many people coming forward with love or pure devotion to Ty One of my big issues though is Ty is going on deployment for Lord knows how long, and he kissed and outed Zane when he knows he s leaving He s leaving Zane to deal with the aftermath I guess it s supposed to be romantic, but it still bothered me You re supposed to be discharged from the military before applying for the FBI so I guesswhat I can t even try and shift through the plot to try and explain FBI agents can retire with 20 years at the age of 50 or they can retire with 25 years of service So, he s what maybe 45 And he just made 21 years So, Zane is looking at a minimum of several years before he s up for retirement, yet the book didn t really make it seem like that to me Also, I really feel that this book and their issues should have come 5th not 7th It would have made much sense for Ty to take off after Zane finally admitted he loved Ty and all of that angst Then, Ty could have come back and all these secrets could have come out It does not make any sense in their story arc to have this book happening right now.That ending wasn t a shocker at all At all From the moment it was mentioned, I knew that s how the book would end.

    Spoiler Free Review Below I have spoiler tags engaged for those who have read the book Holy crap this book shocked the hell out of me I have to say, I started this book feeling not so impressed I forgot how choppy Abigail Roux s writing can be It doesn t read as beautiful or elegant For the first 10% or so I was feeling a bit let down But then it started I was sucked back into the amazing world of Ty and Zane I don t know how Roux did it but she reeled me back in, she reeled me back in HARD CORE.This book was a bit different from the others in the series It was action packed and less hot I know, boo hiss There were many fewer sex scenes However, I m so happy that Roux added something different to the series and kept my interest up I was thinking that the last book was too staid This was anything but.I have heard a bit of hype about Ty his BIG SECRET I was mystified as to what it could be and I m glad it stayed that way I was totally sucker punched and WOW was I shocked Well played, Abigail, well played I have to rate this book solely on enjoyment factor and not technical merit because I was dying while I read this book and I loved every second of it It was delicious and I can t wait for the next in the series Word of advice don t even TRY to follow the plot in a logical fashion it won t work, just accept it and make peace And the POV switches I just smile and nod and go with the flow Abigail Roux gets away with murder and still makes me smile Now onto the section with spoiler tagsSpoiler 1 Ty s secret let s discuss view spoiler Holy moly That was a BIG ONE I m so glad that Zane got all of his anger out properly because I literally felt furious at Ty I think that Roux did a great job of capturing the range of Zane and Ty s emotions during these times I felt everything that they were feeling I also can see things from both guys POVs It was a great secret in terms of adding layers to the series and to their relationship The other minor secrets not a surprise at all The fact that he never really quit the marines and that he was the guy that Zane saw all of those years prior I saw that coming a mile away hide spoiler

    This is probably definitely the most heart wrenching book of the seriesso far There really isn t much I can say about this book without giving everything awayand I refuse to do that I suppose it would be ok to tell you this It was very emotional for me Tears were shed by all Ty and Zaneand even me I love how they are both so flawed but still so passionate There was nothing light and fluffy about this one Ty and Zane sure know how to get it on As always, these two were smokin hot between theerrwherever they chose to do it I loved the setting of New Orleans because I could hear and see and smell what was happening Abi did great job bringing the French Quarter to life There was non stop action with crazy twists and turns And the entire Sidewinder crew is there for the ridealong with the elusive Liam Bell There was the revelation of an epic betrayal view spoiler and it wasn t cheating hide spoiler
