BLOG TOUR – GUEST POST & GIVEAWAY: “Crash & Burn” by Abigail Roux



Hello and thank you for joining me as I bid a fond farewell to Ty and Zane on the Crash & Burn virtual tour! For the next five days, join me on my virtual stops to help me say goodbye to the Cut & Run series with cut scenes, playlists, behind the scenes looks at the process of writing this last book, and a peek at the original plan for the series and the twists and turns it took on its journey to the end.

Did I mention the prizes? I have incredible prizes for two winners; a go-bag put together by one B. Tyler Grady. Each bag has over $370 worth of goodies in it. For more detail on the contents, you can click the link at the end of this post! Every comment on this blog tour enters you in a drawing to win one of these bags. Entries close at midnight, Eastern Time, on April 4, and winners will be announced on April 6th. Contest is valid worldwide.


Since the first book released way back in 2008, I’ve created playlists for each one. The original playlist was simply our own collections of music that we listened to as we wrote. Posting a combination of them publicly was an afterthought, released long after Cut & Run. It became apparent that readers were interested in the playlists, and by the time Sticks & Stones was released it had become a tradition. This playlist is the longest one by far at 50 total songs. The first 8 are taken from the previous books so that this musical journey mirrors Ty and Zane’s through the years. Please enjoy the first half of the playlist here at Boys in our Books.


  1. Live This Life – Big & Rich

I’ll live this life until this live won’t let me live here anymore
Then I will walk yes I will walk with patience through that open door
I have no fear, angels follow me wherever I may go
I’ll live this life until this live won’t let me live here anymore


  1. My Father’s Fun – Elton John

From this day on I own my father’s gun
We dug his shallow grave beneath the sun


  1. Slow Dancin’ in a Burning Room – John Mayer

We’re goin’ down
And you can see it too
We’re goin’ down
And you know that we’re doomed
My dear
We’re slow dancing in a burnin’ room


  1. Touch, Feel, and Lose – Ryan Adams

Thought maybe I could be some kind of shelter
Oh, your storm, how it raged
You know your kisses, they’re like lightnin’ and thunder
And smile is sweet and come down like rain


  1. None of Us Are Free – Solomon Burke

And there are people still in darkness,
And they just can’t see the light.
If you don’t say it’s wrong then that says it right.
We got try to feel for each other, let our brother’s know that
We care.
Got to get the message, send it out loud and clear.


  1. One and Only – Adele

You’ve been on my mind
I grow fonder every day
Lose myself in time
Just thinking of your face
God only knows why it’s taken me
So long to let my doubts go
You’re the only one that I want


  1. Little Lion Man – Mumford & Sons

Weep for yourself, my man,
You’ll never be what is in your heart
Weep, little lion man,
You’re not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself
Take all the courage you have left
And waste it on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head


  1. Hey Brother – Avicii

Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do


  1. Trouble – Halsey

I’ve got my mind made up this time
Go on and light a cigarette
Set a fire in my head
Set a fire in my head, tonight


  1. Short Change Hero – The Heavy

I can’t see where you’re comin’ from
But I know just what you’re runnin’ from
And what matters ain’t the who’s baddest but the
Ones who stop you falling from your ladder, baby
When you feel like you’re feeling now


  1. The Black Spot – Murder By Death

My friend my friend
You were loyal and true
‘Till that wretch of a woman
Well she got to you


  1. Come With Me Now – Kongos

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight


  1. Maps – Maroon 5 

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back


  1. Great Balls of Fire – Jerry Lewis

You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much love drives a man insane
You broke my will, oh what a thrill
Goodness gracious great balls of fire


  1. Blood On My Hands – The Used

You felt the coldness in my eyes,
It’s something I’m not revealing.
Though you got used to my disguise,
You can’t shake this awful feeling.


  1. Dead And Gone – The Black Keys

So long
Why’d you wait him so long?
After every single word is said
I’m feeling dead and gone


  1. Fire – Delta Rae

I, I got my eye on you
I heard what youve been saying
These rumors you spread round
They burn me down like flames, yeah
We used to be friends, but that aint true now
You ain’t got my back
You showed me that so many times
When I need help, cant call for help
Cause no one comes


  1. Ticking Bomb – Aloe Blacc

The silent war has begun
We’re staring down loaded gun
No refuge found no solid ground
Assuming race can’t be won


  1. Bad Blood – Bastille

If we’re only ever looking back
We will drive ourselves insane
As the friendship goes resentment grows
We will walk our different ways


  1. I’ve Got You Covered – Sugar & the Hi Lows

I’ve got you covered
So go ahead and sleep tonight
I’m not like the others
You will see in time


  1. 50 Ways to Say Goodbye – Train

Help me, help me, I’m all out of lies
And ways to say goodbye


  1. Burn Me Down – Marty Stuart

Your lips, hold a wild desire
And give a kiss like the devil’s fire
Your kind of love could burn a town
Touch me, turn me on, and burn me down


  1. Ring of Fire – Johnny Cash

Love is a burnin’ thing,
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire.


  1. Fire – Gavin Degraw

Let’s start a riot tonight
A pack of lions tonight
In this world, he who stops, won’t get anything he wants


  1. Warriors – Imagine Dragons

Here we are, don’t turn away now,
We are the warriors that built this town.

It’s been five years since Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett first worked together to solve the Tri-State murders, and time has been both harsh and kind. Engaged now, they face the challenge of planning a deeply uncertain future together. Zane is at the pinnacle of his career with one last mystery to solve, while Ty is at sea in a world where he’s no longer the tip of a spear.

There’s just one more hurdle in the way of their happy ever after: a traitor from their inner circle who threatens to burn their world to the ground.

Squeezed between the Vega cartel, an unknown mole, and too many alphabet agencies to count, Ty and Zane must gather all their strength and resources to beat the longest odds they’ve ever faced. To make it out alive, they’ll need help from every friend they’ve got. Even the friends who might betray their trust.

    So happy to have gotten on board this train in progress! There is something to be said for being able to read a complete series beginning to end without having to wait between books, but I feel like the delayed gratification was oh so painfully good throughout. Thanks for the ride!

    What a great playlist. Can’t wait to see the rest of it. I’m in denial about the series being over, so I’m doing a re-read first. It’s been fun revisiting the guys as their relationship grows and develops.
