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.

“All the more reason to get you out of town,” Heath said quietly.
She shook her head. “No. I’m staying.” Her words were brave, but her chest hurt. No way could she deal with a serial killer all on her own. She could train every day for the rest of her life and not end up as practiced or as deadly as Heath already was, and she knew it. “I understand you have other cases and people after you. So leave, and I’ll handle this myself.”
“Those are big words, baby,” he said softly.
Her lip quivered, and she bit down on it. “I know. I promised her, Heath. It’s all I have left to give to her.”
He paused, understanding crossing his expression. “Ah, sweetheart. Your sister wouldn’t want that for you.” His voice turned velvety and soft. Soothing.
Anya nodded. “I know. But she was my sister. We shared blood and part of a childhood. She took me trick-or-treating when I was five, and it’s one of my best memories. Then when I needed help as an adult, she didn’t hesitate. She came to me right away, like family. She was the first person I really cared about in far too long, and it hurts like hell that I got her killed.”
He breathed out, the emotion in his eyes deepening.
She swallowed. “I have to do this for her. Either you understand that or you don’t.”
“Why don’t you just let us handle it?”
She pressed her point. “I could, but you need me. I’m the bait.” Inwardly, she winced at the description. That wouldn’t help her to convince him. “Also, here’s the deal. This could be a long op. At some point, you have to leave and deal with whatever is haunting you from your past. When you do, I’ll just challenge him again, and next time you won’t be around to assist.”
“That’s extortion,” Heath said, amusement curving his lip.
She grinned. “Apparently I’m getting quite good at it.”
Heath shook his head. “You’re putting me in an untenable position, baby.”
“No, I’m not.” She shrugged out of his hold. Finally. “I’m not yours to protect, Heath. We’re not together, and we’re not responsible for each other.” The words sliced through her even as she said them. “You’ve been more than clear on that score.”
“There’s something here, Anya. Maybe something real and lasting, if I get everything done I need to do.”
She blinked. “What’s that?”
“The less you know the better. Believe me.”
“What a bunch of bullshit. Go back to your ‘This is fake’ proclamation,” she all but yelled. “Your position is one of work . . . and this is just work.”
His chin lifted. “You think this is just work?” The tone—low and filled with tension—zinged through her body.
Her legs trembled with the urge to take a step back. “Yes.”
“Want me to prove otherwise?” His eyes darkened to the color of the sky right before midnight hit.
As a threat, as a warning, it was damn good. But she’d gone too far to give in now. “You can’t.” Yeah, she’d just waved a red flag in front of a bull.
He didn’t move a muscle. His focus on her was so absolute, she wanted to squirm. “You’re into challenging dangerous men these days, aren’t you?”
She kept her stance. “You’re not all that dangerous, Heath.”
His smile stole her breath. Then he moved. Faster than she could track, he had her by the armpits and up in the air as he carried her toward the bedroom with such speed that her legs automatically wound around to clasp his rib cage. By the time she sucked in air to protest, her butt was on the bed, and he was flattening himself over her.
She struggled, her body on fire, fighting the urge to laugh out loud.
His mouth crushed hers, and she stilled.
Heat.
Fire.
True danger.
He held nothing back, kissing her hard, pressing her head into the comforter. His tongue worked hers, his powerful body plastered against hers, and his hands dug into her hair to hold her in place. Desire spun so quickly into need she couldn’t breathe, even when he wasn’t controlling her mouth.
She shifted against him, closing her eyes to kiss him back. This was what she’d wanted. All of this.
He nipped her lip, soothing the slight pain with another kiss. Then he traced along her jawline, kissing and nipping, finally reaching her earlobe, where he bit.
She arched against him, letting out a soft sigh.
“Anya.” His fingers tangled in her hair, and erotic pain tingled down her scalp. One of his strong arms slid around her waist and then down. His palm spread across her butt, and he ground her against his hard cock.
Pleasure swamped her, and mini explosions flew through her sex. The idea passed, somewhat fleetingly, that he wasn’t playing. Not at all.

Yet she couldn’t stop herself. Her knees widened, and she rubbed against him. “This feels real,” she whispered.




Rebecca Zanetti reaffirms once again what an amazingly talented author she is. Being a long-time fan of the author, I devour her books fast and frequently. When this new series was announced as a spin-off of the Sins Brothers series, I must confess I was a little concerned. The Sins Brothers books were brilliantly crafted and when the series “finished”, I wasn’t sure how Rebecca could top it. I should NEVER have doubted her. Rebecca Zanetti delivers a fast-paced suspenseful story full of new characters, settings and villains but with the same intensity and excitement she brings to all her books.

DEADLY SILENCE is an amazing story full of loss, and strength, and family…and yes, some hot & steamy chemistry. But it’s so much more than “just a story.” It’s about three men on a mission to find missing or lost people, as well as finding answers for themselves. It’s about a woman who loves her friend so much, she’d put herself in harm’s way to save that friend, at all costs. It’s about finding a connection with an unlikely person and then realizing you’re more alike than you think. And that’s just in the first few chapters!

I had a vested interest in each and every person in the book. I was emotionally drained and refilled as well as entertained, disgusted and intrigued. I laughed and grieved with people in the book. I can’t call them characters, because they were so much more than that. And then it felt like coming home again, when a few familiar faces joined up later in the book.

Riker and his brothers Heath and Denver are ultimate alpha males deeply ingrained with loyalty, protectiveness and a fierce sense of duty. A duty they take very seriously: finding the lost. Being “lost” boys themselves, as it were, each man is driven to bring hope to the hopeless while in search of answers to their own questions. They are bound together by circumstance. They are a family forged in the fires of torment, pain, affliction…and blood. 

Rebecca sure knows how to write alpha males but what really clenched the story for me was Zara. She is a strong, stubborn woman with a heart as big as the sky. I respected and admired her very much. I though she and Ryker paired well together and their chemistry was off the charts!

What I really loved about the book was that with all the craziness going on here, the heart of the story is the family aspect. Loyalty, honor, protectiveness and sacrifice are the foundation of this family. Having people that will have your back no matter what as well as kick you in the ass when you need it are the epitome of this family’s values. 

And it just wouldn’t be a Rebecca Zanetti book without some twists and surprises along the way! I never saw them coming! 

DEADLY SILENCE is everything you want in your romantic suspense novel and a whole lot more! I highly encourage you to purchase, borrow or go to your local library and check out this book today!

I voluntarily read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.
