I absolutely adore Rebecca Zanetti’s work and this was no exception. If you love Alpha males, you’ve come to the right place. She is a master at this character type and I can’t get enough. Deadly Silence is definitely steamy and has more than a few twists thrown in. This was a quick read for me, mostly, because I couldn’t put the book down. So finally at 2AM, after about 5 “just one more chapters”, there were only about 30 minutes left in the book. So I gave up on going to bed at a “decent hour” and just read. And it was good.
I will definitely be continuing this series and I will probably have to buy the physical book too, because according to Amazon…
**THE PRINT EDITION CONTAINS EXTRA BONUS SCENES NOT AVAILABLE ANYWHERE ELSE!
So there’s that.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Ryker Jones and his 2 brothers Heath and Denver may not have been born to the same parents, but they learned early in life that the strongest family bonds are not necessarily formed by blood relations. They found each other in the nightmare masquerading as a boys home when they were still pre-teens, and Ryker’s protective streak prompted him to take both boys under his wing to help them stand up to the bullies. Unfortunately those bullies weren’t just boys their own age; the adults who should have been protecting them were more intent on harming them or studying them. A familiar face with a different name from the Sins Brothers series helped form the early years of Ryker, Heath and Denver through physical and mental tests, but when they managed to escape they didn’t look back.
Now almost 20 years later, all 3 men are searching for answers from their past even as they are still on the run from certain aspects of it. Each of them has certain talents and enhanced senses that shouldn’t be possible, but they have accepted their anomalies as part of their lives and put them to good use as private investigators finding those who are lost when everyone else has failed. Their current case has them tracking a serial killer in parallel to the FBI, and they are drawing a bit of unwanted attention but they are willing to take the risk if it means they can put a stop to the killings.
One fringe benefit to their location while working the case: a paralegal named Zara Remington who has rocked Ryker’s world. They were supposed to be a casual fling, but they definitely burn hot when they are together and the lines between casual and something more have become blurred much to the dismay of everyone involved. Zara’s childhood was filled with her flighty and irresponsible mother’s never ending string of lackluster unreliable boyfriends, and she is determined to find someone permanent when the time is right to settle down. She never planned on Ryker Jones working his way under his skin with his bad boy attitude, protective and dominant streaks, and a disconcerting habit of wandering in and out of her life without notice. When he decides it is time to go beyond casual and moves himself into her town and her life, she immediately balks at his decision- mostly because it is HIS decision and she has no desire to be anything other than independent. Fortunately he sees through her posturing and sticks around anyway which turns out to be a very good thing.
Suddenly danger is all around them and it is coming from multiple sources. Zara is walking a dangerous line in her career. Her office is representing a powerful town figure in his divorce, but she has been quietly helping her best friend Julie who just so happens to be the man’s wife. Her reputation and future will be destroyed if her duplicity is revealed but she can’t just stand by and watch the only friend she has be railroaded by the wife beating politician. When Zara gets a little too close, a few bruises and Ryker’s inquisitive nature become the least of her problems as she is framed for murder.
Ryker is far from problem- free himself. His brothers don’t understand his feelings for Zara and are protesting his decision to get even closer to her than he has been. The serial killer case is heating up and Heath is taking it personally which adds to all their stress, and Denver is feeling resentful of Ryker’s new relationship after walking away from one of his own not so long ago in order to protect the lady from their past. Speaking of their past- it is about to come knocking on their door in a very unexpected way! A boy named Greg hacks their security and blackmails them into helping him find the woman who made his childhood a living hell: a face and scenario all 3 men are all too familiar with. Their search sets of a chain of events none of them expected and the exciting race to the finish is on!
Deadly Silence is filled with suspense and intrigue but is offset with fun, sexy times, plenty of steam, family, love and occasionally laughter. Zara fits the mold of strong and independent heroine that I usually enjoy so much, but I have to admit there were a few times that she started to sound like a broken record and I just wanted to give her a very un-subtle nudge to knock her out of the groove and onto a different track. Greg’s addition to the story was heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time as glimpses of the carefree boy he should have been occasionally broke through the facade of hardened soldier and killer that he was forced into from the moment he was old enough to walk. Ryker’s protective alpha streak with his occasional glimpses of vulnerability certainly worked for me, and before long, his family grows in a way he and his brothers never expected. I absolutely adored the familiar faces that appear on his doorstep!
I am loving this new series already, and the story of the Jones brothers is far from over. I cannot wait to see what comes next in Lethal Lies, but in the meantime, grab yourself a copy of Deadly Silence and settle in to enjoy the wild ride!
From strong, seriously HOT alpha males that will make you swoon, who are hunting down a serial killer, then taking on a case dealing with a messy divorce, and at the same time trying to stay two steps ahead of a psychotic doctor and her minions, well all I can say is that there is never a dull moment to be had with this book. But wait...there's more! In addition to all that action, you have two people, Ryker and Zara (the stars of this show) who have this amazing sexual chemistry that just sizzles from the pages!
The twists, suspense, and sizzling chemistry made Deadly Silence an amazing and delicious read that I could not put down! If you are looking for a fast-paced, romantic suspense that totally engages your right from the start and is difficult to put down because you have to find out what happens, then I highly recommend Deadly Silence. Ms. Zanetti has produced an edge of your seat start to what looks like will be an amazing series and is one you will want to check out!

Zara has been casually seeing Ryker for months but knows there will never be anything serious between them. That doesn't stop her turning to him for help when one of her closest friends goes missing though and when it looks like Zara may be in danger too Ryker realises that he would do anything to keep her safe. The timing couldn't be worse considering Ryker's past, and his enemies, are about to catch up with him, but Zara needs his help and he could never walk away from her.
Rebecca Zanetti always manages to write books that are full of action and danger but also great characters, strong family bonds and scorching hot romances. Zara and Ryker's relationship is a little different because they're already seeing each other before the story starts but because they've both been trying to keep things casual we still get to see their relationship blossom throughout the book. Ryker was a very overprotective alpha male but Zara holds her ground and she's willing to fight for what she needs and not let him walk all over her which was good. He's actually more willing to pursue a relationship than she is because she has a fear of him walking away and breaking her heart and he could actually be a really sweet guy even though he was also quite demanding and knew exactly what he wanted.
As I've come to expect from this author one of my favourite things about this book was the bond between Ryker, Heath and Denver. The boys aren't related by blood but instead they chose each other and they are very close. They all had awful childhoods that were made even worse in the orphanage where they met and surviving that kind of hell together left them with an unbreakable bond. They've always known that someone from their past is hunting them so they've had to work hard to stay under the radar but when they take on a new client they start to realise that perhaps it's time to confront their past so they can finally move on with their lives. There was a lot to love about their story and I really enjoyed seeing characters from the Sin Brothers books put in an appearance too, I hope we see more cameos from them throughout the series.
I loved all three brothers so much that I've already started reading Heath's book, Lethal Lies, and I expect to be devouring Denver's story, Twisted Truths, immediately afterwards. Sometimes there are huge advantages of not starting a new series until all the books have been published and I intend to make the most of them!
I thought there would be more in the story about the Lost boys and their abilities but there isnt much at all, the story is mostly about Zara and what is happening in her life which is boring, uninteresting and unbelievable at times that I found it hard to read especially since they have abilities and Ryker was unable to take down 1 normal man with a gun, I think it would have been better reading this as a shorter book instead of its 400 pages. the story became a bit more interesting at 80% when other super soldiers from the original series turned up to help. I doubt I would read another in this series.
