Happy Monday everyone! Today Scattered Thoughts is participating in Riptide Publishing’s Web Hunt for Abigail Roux’s book Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run #7), one of Scattered Thoughts Best Series of…well you name the year and this series will still be at the top of my list. Scattered Thoughts will be joining the party along with many of your favorite book blogs by posting about the book and including one of my favorite quotes (so hard) from any book in the Cut & Run series. Readers who collect each quote and submit their findings to firstname.lastname@example.org will be eligible to win one of two runner-up prizes and one grand prize. And oh, what a prize it is!!! But I’m not telling, at least not yet!
Also on the agenda for today, is Riptide Publishing’s first ever live chat, with Abi Roux, happening at 12pm EST on April 10, with the RSVP link https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/107747069078430869043/events/crbhmnugf1hbokmj86anv4vaesc?authkey=CLPsidKGwKnvBQ. I love Abigail Roux (although I will admit I am currently hunting her down with a nerf bat with Ty and Zane’s names on it). Abigail Roux is a meticulous researcher for her novels, master of memorable dialog, and currently holder of the Evil Queen title, mostly due to Touch & Geaux. Grab the book, read the reviews (yeah, yeah, I know, reverse order but it works for Touch & Geaux), pick up your pitch forks and torches and join me in Scattered Thoughts own hunt. Those of you who have read the book will understand totally, a toss up between lobbing jewels at Roux’s head or cow plops. Don’t be left out of the know, you need this book and here is your chance for prizes too!
For those of you on the hunt, here is the quote I chose:
“Cameron found himself smiling as he thought about the two tough, acerbic FBI agents. “It’s so cute. They’re in love.”
“It’s like watching two kittens fight with machetes,” Julian muttered.
“What? Its weird!”
“No its not. They’re perfect for each other. Poor Zane though,” Cameron murmured. “In love with Ty Grady.” He couldn’t imagine how frustrating that would be. Then Julian inhaled, and Cameron chuckled slightly. Yeah, he could actually.”
― Abigail Roux, Armed & Dangerous
The thing about the Cut & Run series is that there are literally hundreds of quotes that I could have chosen. Choosing one is like asking which is your favorite child, almost impossible to do. I did go with funny because to choose the ones where Ty and Zane are emotionally vulnerable is just too close at the moment, more about that later. I will say that Touch & Geaux is the best of a quality series that keeps improving with each new release. How that is possible is due to Abigail Roux. Has she sold her soul? I know many are wondering…..hmmmmm…how tiny can those horns be?
Later today I wlll blogging about some of my favorite moments from Cut & Run. Moments that made me laugh like in Fish & Chips (Cut & Run #3) when Ty Grady had to impersonate arm candy Del Porter. When Ty stepped out after being waxed and bleached, well, my sides hurt just thinking about it. And then there are the moments that had me in tears…so many moments…..starting from the beginning in Cut & Run (book 1) when we first meet the two men that I have come to care for and follow through tumultuous event in their lives in every book that has been released since. Touch & Geaux is a milestone among milestones in this series.
