Tiffany Girl operators from previous novels Dylan Hart Skeeter Bang and Gillian Pentycote Thethers are One Cause, Many Ailments: The Leaky Gut Syndrome: What It Is and How It May Be Affecting Your Health offn various pursuits during this story Zachary Prade and Lily Robbins were both strong likeable characters Lily was very self sufficient and able to handle danger but still sensitive enough that she was bothered afterwards Zach and Lily fell for Cutting Edge Marketing Analytics: Real World Cases and Data Sets for Hands On Learning (FT Press Analytics) one another uickly andnce she realized that he was a government agent neither Paolo and Panetto of them tried to deny their strong emotional connection This book is extremely fast paced and contains plentyf action Most Vivien Leigh of the story takes placen By the Book one day The backgrounds and connections between characters are so important to this series that I strongly recommend reading them inrder It would be hard to make sense The Day After the Dollar Crashes: A Survival Guide for the Rise of the New World Order of the Steele Street books if they were readut f the context f the series I loved Zach s story and I eagerly await the pportunity to read the next book Lily and ZachThese two briefly met in the jungle before she was flown back to the states n a private jet by the local drug lord Now in Albuuerue Lily is packing to drive to her parent ranch in Montana She gets up in the morning takes a shower and bam a man enters her bathroom whirls her around and shoots at another stranger that s aiming a gun at

there s safety in his Steele Street brothers They d have his back never betray him because nce a Steele Street boy always a Steele Street boyUnlike the majority f the series this uting is a continuation Practical Ventriloquism of its predecessor Cameos from previous series favorites welcomed the prodigal Steel Street bother home But as a series fan I was anxious and disappointed forne specific reunion that didn t happen hereRating 4stars I was all set to give this book a solid five star ratingthen the last page came and went leaving me feeling like ne f the main dynamics f the story had been ignored And it left me feeling rather unsatisfied so I bumped down my rating an entire point to four stars Cutting Loose is the eighth book in Tara Janzen s Steele Street series and the second book in the Loose subset It s important to note that this book is NOT a standalone Events in this story are directly related to what happened in the previous book On the Loose It s basically a continuation f things that happened in On the Loose So you really should at least read that On Riemanns Theory of Algebraic Functions and Their Integrals one first It would help to read thethers to understand character dynamics and the basic set up but you could probably get by just reading On the Loose firstIn the previous book schoolteacher Lily Robbins took a sabbatical from her job to travel to El Salvador where she planned to make a documentary Achtung ... U-Boats Passing: A Saga of War at Sea (Vol. 2) on the nunsf an impoverished Catholic Achtung Schweinehund!: A Boy's Own Story of Imaginary Combat orphanage But when she got there all she saw was violence and death She filmed the last wordsf a CIA pilot shot down and tor.

helping them avoid all the people gunning for them There s lots Firing the First Elder (Pioneers in the Pulpit Book 2) of high speed 120 mph driving in a trickedut 68 Shelby Cobra lots f murder and mayhem and along the way Lily and Zach find themselves unable to deny the chemistry going n between themWhat I liked most about this ne was the relationship between Zach and Lily Yes Zach was this hardened agent with the CIA used to going undercover for years at a time yet underneath it all he was just a sweet guy looking for love He just seemed like a guy who really needed to be loved and had a lot f love to give The author didn t go too deep into his past but what she revealed was rather heart breaking I was so glad he found a woman like Lily who although was totally innocent and unaware what the macrame bracelet contained certainly was a smart cookie able to put two and two together and was even able to protect herself I liked that about her and was glad that even though she had people gunning for her she didn t freak The Secret Child out and lose her headI also liked the little tidbits that the author gave about somef the Steele Street guys pasts I really wasn t expecting to hear about how the sorceress Alazne was linked to some Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno: Tokyo Teen Fashion Subculture Handbook of the guys verrry interestingI liked the two new characters that were introduced Cherie Hacker computer geek extraordinaire and techno nerd Dr Gabriel Shore who just happens to be Gillian Red Dog Pentycote s younger brother I predict hot times for these two characters in the futureWhat I didn t like was when the author went into too much detail about the various computers guns hi tech euipment and even the muscle cars which are almost characters themselves complete with names like Charlotte Charlene and Roxanne For me a little bitf this is enough too much and my mind starts to wander I d rather read about the romance aspects f the plot which were very well done It was hard to believe that Zach and Lily s romance took place in the space f ne day I totally bought into it and I especially liked the little follow up that basically happened after the action part f the story was resolved It was very sweet and sexy Zach was just a total sweetheart in my pinion and I really wanted him to have a HEA he deserved it Tara Janzen has a real knack for making her alpha heroes sweetly vulnerable and I like how they ften come undone by a womanSo for those Death by Inferior Design of you following the series this was a mostly fast paced exciting read I think the author is backn track with this ne and it has the flavor f the earlier books It also helped that we got a nice glimpse Hitler's Northern War: The Luftwaffe's Ill-Fated Campaign, 1940-1945 of the guys and gals from Steele Street and characters like Dylan Hart and Skeeter Bang actually played a pretty important role I loved Zach and Lily and thought their love scenes were sweet sexy and hot too I will definitely startn the next ne Loose and Easy soon and look forward to the release f Breaking Loose this summer 4 12 stars Actual Rating 35 Stars Cutting Loose still didn t feel like the reason why I ended up loving these Steele Street books but it DID get right back into the heart f it s absurdly entertaining factor There are guns there are cars and there s the hot and steamy sex f which A Philosophy of Cinematic Art our couple seems to managever a very long period The Potato Hack: Weight Loss Simplified of time Whew There s high speed chase from danger but no gun fightsr explosionsAnd it wasn t until nearing the end White House Years (Henry Kissingers Memoirs of the book that I realized that the entire settingf this 400 page book takes place ver the time frame f Scab one day Only the first couple and last couple chapters are not partf the In a World Created by a Drunken God one day And so that s when I felt a slightly bit impressed because for a book that manages to dragut an entire day Indo No Kao of cat and mouse chase between several players the progression actually flew by pretty uicklyI hadn t even been aware that things were happening because I kept thinking that we weren t in the middlef the conflict yet and yet we technically were If that makes any senseThese books don t make any senseSo this review probably doesn t make any sense eitherAnywayWhile Lily and Zach were interesting characters this wouldn t be the first time in this series where we didn t get enough f a chance to get to know the main couple And so while you learn a few things about them as the story progresses we really barely skim the surface f these two character s biographies Even Lily barely knows who Zach is until the end Giant Peach Yodel of the book The twof them are running from danger together with secrets as the giant pink elephant in the backseat Sinai and Zion of Zach s Shelby Cobra MustangAnd yet somehow they managed to make this partnership work Somehow they develop a rather believable romance even if mostf it is based ff f lust and adrenaline Somehow I found the two f them rather intriguingMeanwhile we get to meet previous characters which I love doing because usually I end up loving previous books main characters as side characters They tend to be much fun when they aren t center stage ya know Unfortunately like some f the previous books in this series you also get introduced to a random secondary couple who kind f also manages to hog some book time along with ther side characters and you d rather just get back to the main couple and learn about themEntertaining book Lots Iniquity of potential Lotsf crazy Free Friday 7Page Count 405Cash Award 1000Updated Bank Balance 26800 Zachary Prade aka Alejandro Campos Lily Robbins Charlotte the Harlot A Fantastic story that finally brings piece love to the last lost Steele Street crew member This story was such an amazing ride from the very first page to the last The action was non stop and the chemistry between Zach Lily was explosive The past few books have just been k for me but this ne made me remember why I fell in love with the series Can t wait for the next installment Number EIGHT in this series It was nly k Solutions to conflicts seem to come ut f Tara s tail I want to read about Red Dog as she sounds tough This book is after the author presumably had milked that character. El Salvador to film a documentaryand got caught in the middle f a nasty drug and guerrilla war Now back in the US hunted by spooks and assassins Lily has to trust Campos again Except his name isn’t Campos and he’s arousing a passion so hot it’s criminal That is if they can survive long enough to enjoy it.

ones to realize what she has Lotsf underworld people are now gunning for Lily So it s Zach s job to get to Lily a woman he hasn t been able to stop thinking about get the bracelet and get ut Easier said than done Someone gets to her before him and now the two are running for their livestrying to get to Denver and for Zach trying to get homeRight from the start I was hooked into this story Alejandro Zach was such an intriguing character in the last book so I was very interested in his story He s the last lost Steele Street boy and I wanted to see how that played ut see how he returned to the fold and the reunion with his friendsPlus there was some great chemistry between him and Lily right from the start There was an enjoyable dynamic between them that was fun to read I liked Lily a lot Very strong heroine materialOne f the aspects f this book that I enjoyed the most was ironically the thing that was lacking in the previous book for me the Steele Street vibe This book very much felt like a Steele Street story It s fast paced action packed edge f you seat suspense The whole book takes place in nly about a day but you hardly notice it because the story is so interesting And I loved that the Steele Street crew r at least some f them actually played a role in this book Dylan Skeeter and Gillian all played supporting roles plus some face time for Honey and the introduction Dicmatized 2: Bitter Sweet Revenge of two new characters Cherie Hacker and Gabriel Shore Red Dog s brother I just really enjoyed having Dylan Skeeter and Gillian in the book Skeeter isne Martian Science Fiction: Scifi Novellas Set on Mars of my all time favorite heroines But having them present gave the book a much stronger Steele StreetSDF feel Oh and the cars were backI LOVE the Steele Street cars Zach had a Shelby Mustang which is just SO not fair So up until the endf this book I loved everything about it Then the end left me wanting One The Witches Ball of the main themes was thatf Zach going back home back to Steele Street and to his family There were scenes throughout the book between Zach and SB303 Skeeter that were great and Dylan telling Zach to come home so he could meet Dylan s wife Plus the anticipated reunion Saving Charmaine: A Heaton Family Friends Series Book of Zach and Dylan which started at the endf the previous book So I was really waiting for that I really wanted to read that in person reunion with Zach and his past And it never happened He gets back to Denver at the very end the plot resolves he s unconscious when Gillian finds him Then the story ends with 2 scenesone f Zach in the hospital with Lily visiting him then a final chapter four weeks later between Lily and Zach the HEA There was no face to face reunion with Zach and Dylan r Zach and any ther f the SDF people no meeting The Deadline of Zach and SB303 Skeeter Dylan s wife It was so disappointing I was waiting the whole book for that and was left hanging Sure the plot was resolved some threads were left for upcoming books and there was an HEA for Lily and Zach but having thatne aspect left undone left me feeling unsatisfied when I finished It was such a running theme throughout the story and to not have it dealt with was just a big let down Plus Zach s future was a bit sketchy There s like a 3 sentence thing about how he ll now be doing jobs for General Grant and SDF and all I could think was wait That s all I get How did this come aboutSo yeah I finished this book and all I could think about as I was falling asleep after was how annoyed I was with the ending and how disappointed that ne f the things I d looked forward to most in the book never happened It leaves a bit Ready to Restore: The Layman's Guide to Christian Counseling of a sour taste and turns a five star book into a four star The book is fantasticup to the end But I d still recommend reading it for those that have enjoyed thether books in this series I enjoyed it a lot just wished that ne issue had been dealt with at the end Another action packed thrilling ride by JanzenI can t believe how she does it She manages to combine all f my favourite things hot torued up muscle cars my fave will always be Superman s 1971 Dodge Challenger RT Hemi in Sub This series is vey entertaining and I find myself repeatedly coming back for It just doesn t contain the depth and finesse that would rate it higher Apart from a little slow down mid book too much technical info verload and too many bad guys to keep track f this latest edition in the Steele Street series was a rip roaring good time It felt like Shieldmaiden Book 1: Quest for the Jewel onef the earlier reads from the series the first five are actually some Traficada: Diário de uma Escrava Sexual (Portuguese Edition) of the best combinationsf hot romance and gripping suspense that I ve read I felt like the series was tailing Encounter at Buff Ledge: A UFO Case History off though with the sixth and seventh books sortf losing the romance and the plots becoming a bit complicated But I m happy to say that I think Tara Janzen is back Carte touristique : Corse Sud : Ajaccio - Bonifacio on track again with Cutting LooseThat
