Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend the whole Cut & Run series, with this book as probably my favorite. The most compelling gay romance ever. I just can't get enough of Ty and Zane.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Stars & Stripes?
The shooting contest.
Which character – as performed by J. F. Harding – was your favorite?
J.F. Harding was a great choice for finishing this series. His voice characterizations for both protagonists are spot on. He seems an excellent study, already extremely comfortable with the material. I'm looking forward to enjoying the rest of the books with him as narrator.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This is the first book in the series where Ty and Zane get to focus on their happiness and the strength of their relationship as a gay couple. I found it very rewarding and satisfying after all they'd been through at this point.
Any additional comments?
Once again, I'm very happy with the new narrator!

What made the experience of listening to Stars & Stripes the most enjoyable?
Ty and Zane and how these two could get into trouble tied up, handcuffed and chained in a box with no door or holes.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Ty and Zane, sorry, they are a package deal. I love the way they love each other. So passionate and demanding.
What about J. F. Harding’s performance did you like?
I did actually. I was a bit miffed that the narrator changed from the first 5 books, but once I got used to his voices I was enthralled.
Who was the most memorable character of Stars & Stripes and why?
Ty, what that man won't do for the man he loves.
Any additional comments?
So, a little bit of an unconventional review here, but I thought it was perfect for the unconventional coupling that is Tyler Grady and Xander Garrett. In this latest installment of the Cut and Run series, Ty and Zane take a vacation and accompany each other to their homes. It’s time to meet the parents boys!
Ty basically cut and ran when he was old enough, joining the military and putting himself in one dangerous situation after another. When he finally tells his parents that Zane is more than just his partner at work, he is his partner at home; it doesn’t get the reception he thought it would. Mom and Pops don’t mind him being gay, they are just pissed that Ty thought he had to run away rather than tell them.
If Zane was hoping for the same reaction, what he gets is mixed. The people that matter don’t mind, aside from his mother, who Zane has never had any type of relationship with. And let me just say, what this bitch does at the end of the book pisses me off to no end. Lord forgive me, but in the shootout at the OK corral I wish she would have been a casualty of war.
It took me about an hour to get used to the new narrator as the books that were published through DSP had a different person telling the stories. Once I warmed to Harding the story took off and I was so engrossed I could not put down my iPod. All the elements I have come to love about these two men and the borderline psychotic lives they lead were there, just under a different voice. I enjoyed how Harding was able to give each character their own distinct voice and still add emotion to the voices.
Of course if you are a Ty and Zane fan you’ll absolutely love this story. Action packed and nonstop from the first letter until the last. Ty and Zane are a special kind of crazy and one of these days they are going to figure out that they anchor each other. The storyline was brilliant, what is it about Ty and large, demented cats? I had a blast getting to know both men’s families, aside from mommy dearest who can take a long walk off a short pier. Emotional, not only intriguing but completely engrossing, edge of your seat shenanigans that I have come to expect with these two men. Oh but my favorite part is how these two love each other with every fiber of their being. So passionate, enigmatic and dangerous.
Definitely a must listen series. You can’t just jump right in though. Sorry, you must start at the beginning. And now I’m off to start the next book and see if Ty and Zane can blow up the White House, or something equally scandalous.
