Book Description

When Nick O'Flaherty arrives at the scene of a double homicide to find he has a witness to the crime, he thinks it’s his lucky day. But when he realizes his witness is suffering from amnesia and can’t even remember his own name, Nick wishes he’d gone with his gut and put in for vacation time.

Then Nick’s boyfriend and former Recon teammate, Kelly Abbott, joins him in Boston, and Nick finds his hands a little too full as the case and his personal life collide. The witness he’s dubbed “JD” is being tailed by Julian Cross, a retired CIA hitman. To complicate matters further, JD forms an attachment to Nick that Nick struggles not to respond to as they search for the key to JD’s identity.

Trying to determine whether JD is friend or foe as they investigate the crime puts them on the trail of a much older mystery. When multiple attempts are made on their lives, Nick is forced to turn to old enemies and new allies to solve a centuries-old crime before he and Kelly get added to the history books.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Cliched and dull 18 Jun. 2014
    By :-)

    I couldn't even finish reading Cross and Crown. I just reached a point where the plot seemed so silly and uninteresting that I put it down and started reading something else. These kinds of stories seem so done-to-death now. Both Dan Brown and National Treasure type mysteries seem so tired and dull these days. Perhaps the author was writing a parody? I don't know what the intention was but it didn't work for me. Authors need original stories. Fish and Chips was a clever, original, entertaining story. This was not.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Action & Adventure 10 May 2015
    By Simon
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I liked it, a lot. It's not Ty and Zane, and the simmering passion we have come to know and love from our Cut and Run protagonists is...different, between Nick and Kelly - as it should be, these are different characters.
    This novel is more history and adventure, less passion and action unlike the Cut and Run series, which is passion and action less history and adventure. Reminded me a little of a gay version of "The Da Vinci Code" no bad thing I hasten to add.
    I enjoyed the history aspect to the plot, I loved the fact that the two protagonists were not copulating at every possible opportunity and the characters are growing on me (if Kelly wore specs and was a little more nerdy doctor, I'd like him even more :) .
    I've read the other reviews and I have to say that I was pleased the sex in this novel was not as blatant or as graphic as those in the C&R series. This novel relies on plot more than sex and I personally thought the plot was great. Totally Boys Adventure.
    4 x Stars. I'm not quite sure why I couldn't give it that extra star. Probably because I haven't as yet warmed to the characters as much as I feel I should have done by Book 2.
    Oh yes.....Alex Cross. He's back, and deserves another novel to himself.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 14 Oct. 2014
    By ali

    Ok what can I say yes the story bid feel like a treasure hunt which was not great but I did like seeing how thing's where going with nick and Kelly to see how they where together you get to see how nick is still not quite there since they all came back and how thing's are changing with ty and there is a distance there which may even be a good think for them both in the long run also Julian cross is also in this book as he is trying to find his husband who has been taken to force Julian to find the treasure or they will kill him so j works with nick and Kelly. The treasure hunt side of thing's is good don't get me wrong if you like that sort of thing with a lot of history in just not my thing but you have a lot of people looking for it throw in a killing and a man with no memory and that is where nick come's into it. So yes good will get the next one to thing's go.

    5.0 out of 5 stars well paced story 26 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have a great fondness for the characters in this series. They show strength in their abilities and weakness at the knees when their loves come into view. There is a strong story line for the characters to move through which kept me engaged throughout. The sex is good but doesn't overwhelm the story. I hope to see more books in this series.

    Well written spin-off from the "Cut & Run" series, well developed plot and complex, interesting characters. Plenty of humour, and Julian Cross & Cameron - what can be bad about it?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Totally amazing 25 Nov. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Oh wow I loved this one...All my Nick and Kelly with a dash of Julian.....and Poor Cam......Nick is joined by his boyfriend Kelly in Boston while he's on the case of a man caught up in a murder and treasure hunt with Amnesia....Nick and Kelly are again hot as sin in and out of bed.....This story just flowed so easily and i finished it in three hours....I loved the mystery of the treasure hunt and it reminded me of The Da Vinci Code but with two/three hot guys in it.....Nick and Kelly work well together and Kelly keeps Nick calmed when he needs it....I have to say I didn't think this would work as the cut and run books did but it did and I will definitely be adding this to my paperback collection...A sizzling hot read x

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another mystery, with hot men thrown in 14 Jun. 2014
    By Liz
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Thank you Ms Roux, another great instalment of the continuing saga of these sexy men. I liked the mystery, I liked the continued development of Nick and Kelly's relationship, I liked the amusing bits of dialogue to keep the characters fresh, and I loved the inclusion of Julian again. *taps foot waiting for more Ty and Zane, with Nick, Kelly, Julian and his gentle Cam thrown in...
