"Deadly Silence" by Rebecca Zanetti


SERIES: Blood Brothers #1
PUBLISHER: Headline Eternal
GENRE: Romantic Suspense
SOURCE: Publisher

Paralegal Zara Remington is in over her head. Helping out a friend has put not only her job but her life in jeopardy. Zara needs help from someone she can trust—she just doesn't expect it to be the mysterious PI who recently appeared in her life. Ryker Jones has problems of his own, including recovering from his investigative agency's recent brutal loss of a client.He wants to keep Zara at arm's length—and protect her from the reality of what he's running from. But when danger arrives on Zara's doorstep, Ryker can't walk away. He might be the only one who can save her—if his deadly past doesn't catch up with them first...


If you, like me, haven't read the Sin Brothers series, don't worry because you can follow this spin-off with no problems. In fact, Zanetti does a good job presenting you some unusual characters and a catching plot, keeping the reader engaged while also making them question both events and characters.

I found the premise really interesting, and I wasn't bothered by the fact that the main characters here already know each other and are in a relationship of some sort—although 'relationship' might sound like a too big of a word for Zara and Ryker—but I kept feeling something was off... Those two have an undeniable chemistry but, while reading their dialogues and steamy scenes, I just couldn't click with them. There were also times when I felt things went too fast, or would be said/accepted too easily, and that may be because there's too much going on. However, there was a nice dose of action and mystery that I liked, and turns I always appreciate in my reads.

Overall, I'm glad I read "Deadly Silence". It was my first try with a Zanetti's book and I actually want to find out more about her Blood Brothers series because it's no typical romantic suspense, and you gotta like that.
