I read a lot of paranormal romance but want decent writing and good plot lines alongside the romance elements. These two linked novellas ticked most of the boxes for me. Both Lara Adrian and Tina Folsom are best selling authors in this genre and always do a good job. I'd be happy to recommend them paranormal romance fans. Eric Dove does a decent job with the narration. If you're new to this genre be aware the 'love' scenes do go into quite a bit of detail but I didn't find them off-putting like some books with the mandatory 'big bare-chested hunk' on the front cover!
Would you listen to Cut and Run again? Why?
Yes. I already listened twice. Loved the story line. Not to much violence.
What did you like best about this story?
Each agent found the one person to compliment them on their journey to find answers.
What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He brings out the drama in the suspense scenes.
Any additional comments?
I hope you finish the story by letting all the agents finally meet and fulfill their ultimate goal.

CUT by Lara Adrian
I liked this story! And as one reviewer said, “Male characters were just too unbelievably macho, built, smart, etc.,” which I happen to really like. Unlike a drop-dead gorgeous guy and a too plain, too plump, too invisible, woman that we’re supposed to believe the hero will fall for. Not ever gonna happen. AND I never got where this same reviewer got that Tori was a nitwit.
I did think Ethan’s codename, Zephyr, was pretty cool.
Anyway, I liked when Ethan and Tori were in the bathroom and she had him prove that he had precognitive abilities. That was kind of fun. I really couldn’t wait to see what happen to the Phoenix program that he had to run, and continue running, until he ran into Tori, whom he left 3 years before without a word. I was sorry about his dad even though he kind of deserved it for the hell he put Ethan through as a child. I was sorry to see that short story end but was happy to start the next.
There were a couple of explicit sex scenes in this and for BOTH stories the F-bomb was used 60 times.
RUN by Tina Folsom
Ok, Phoebe was written as a really stupid woman. Why the heck would a woman drive 300 miles to find a man she just met, and screwed, just to raise hell for him leaving her a note that said “you wouldn’t understand.” That would be the weakest kind of woman, or one that a little insane. I will definitely finish this but right now the heroine is TSTL, thanks to the author.
Phoebe did get better but I didn’t like this story as much as I did the first. It did get exciting, however. And as stupid as she was earlier I really didn’t want the assassin to finish strangling her because that would have just upset Scott. LOL…
Again there were 2 or 3 explicit sex scenes in these two stories but, thank God, it wasn’t erotic sex. Yuck.
And as a reminder, the F-bomb was used a total of 60 times, which is ok by me since I’m such a potty mouth.
As to the narrator: Eric Dove just gets better and better. As long as a male can make a woman sound like a woman and can laugh or whisper when it’s called for I’m pretty happy, and he does all that. He’s becoming one of my favor male narrators.
