What it’s about
DON’T LOOK BACK
Under siege. That’s how Ryker Jones feels. The Lost Bastards Investigative Agency he opened up with his blood brothers has lost a client in a brutal way. The past he can’t outrun is resurfacing, threatening to drag him down in the undertow. And the beautiful woman he’s been trying to keep at arm’s length is in danger…and he’ll destroy anything and anyone to keep her safe.
Paralegal Zara Remington is in over her head. She’s making risky moves at work by day and indulging in an affair with a darkly dangerous PI by night. There’s a lot Ryker isn’t telling her and the more she uncovers, the less she wants to know. But when all hell breaks loose, Ryker may be the only one to save her. If his past doesn’t catch up to them first…
Full of twists and turns you won’t see coming, DEADLY SILENCE is New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti at her suspenseful best.
Rebecca Zanetti has done it again! I LOVED this book! I read the Sin Brothers a couple years back, and I fell in love with the Gray Brothers. I was sad to see the series go. Now, I can feel like I am back there all over again with her latest series, The Blood Brothers!
Deadly Silence is a fast-paced page turner that will keep you intrigued and guessing until the very end. This book has it all, steam, suspense, a bit of paranormal activity (not like the movie) and a comradery between the main and secondary characters that many books can miss.
There was quite a bit of suspense in this book. I loved that the plot was not easily predictable, and the characters reactions and actions seemed to be natural. Or, as natural as they can be, given who the characters are.
There were a couple surprise characters who showed up, and it was great to see the interactions between the groups of people. I was certainly surprised to see them!
Zara and Ryker are two strong, independent people who don’t “need” anyone to take care of them. However, in their own ways, they both come to realize the do need someone, and it was great to see them begin to rely on each other, trust the other, and love the other.
Although Ryker and Zara are both strong and independent characters, they both find a way to be vulnerable to each other, and it was beautiful to watch that progress. And let’s take a minute to talk about the steam. These two were burning up the sheets! I loved the relationship between the two, and watching their love blossom was a sweetness you don’t often see in-between all the action.
I loved this first introduction to the Blood Brothers series, and I cannot WAIT for the others to come out!
