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...
I’m a HUGE fan of the Sin Brothers series and even though I loved Total Surrender, the last book in the series, Jory’s book, I’m SUPER excited to say that it’s not over! Blood Brothers, Zanetti’s new series, is a spin off series to the Sin Brothers series and introduces a trio of brothers who are trying to survive while looking for answers.
Ryker and his brothers find the lost. When the law firm that Zara works for hires their services, Zara never expects to develop a relationship for Ryker. Yet, two months later, Ryker and Zara are still trying to understand where they stand when Ryker’s past comes back to haunt them.
Deadly Silence was freaking BRILLIANT!! *throws confetti*
Everything was amazing - the action, the suspense, the R-O-M-A-N-C-E, Ryker’s brothers, the Dean Brothers and some new and old characters! Zanetti is a GENIOUS! The brilliance of the plot will blow you away! There are some twists in the story and some HUGE surprises so be prepared! I’m not going to spoil anything but do you remember Chance, Wade and Kyle (the brothers that Piper and Jory rescue in Total Surrender)?! Well, we are not done with them yet!
The book had a lot going on and I do admit that I was a bit confused at one point but everything makes sense in the end. The blood brothers have their own missions and battles to fight but they are not alone! We get to catch up with the Dean brothers *Squee* and the whole family actually! Of course, despite all the action and missions in the book, Zara and Ryker remain the main focus and let me tell you, Zanetti does not disappoint!
Deadly Silence was perfect! Even though it is not a cliffhanger, the brothers do have unfinished business to take care of and I can’t wait for that! So, who’s next? Will it be Denver (and possible Noni?) or Heath?

Heat from his body washed over her, but she lifted her head to meet his gaze. “We don’t have a relationship.”
He smiled then, and the curve of his lips held more determination than amusement. “I’m not letting you run, and I’m certainly not letting you hide, baby. Although neither of us has been in this for the long haul, I’m staying in Wyoming for the moment. The first thing that’s going to happen is I’m going to figure out who dared put a hand on you and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
For the first time, she saw a side of him that gave her true pause. In the long haul, he’d be unbearably possessive. Why did that give her an intriguing sense of safety? “Knock it off,” she snapped in his face. “Get out of my business.”
That quickly, she found her back against the door and her front pinned by hard male. His hands planted on either side of her neck, his thumbs at her jaw, forcing her to look at him. “Something you need to understand and pretty damn quick is that your business is my business right now.” His thumb swept up and over the offensive bruise on her face.
“Step back.” Her voice trembled.
He ignored the very calm order. “No. You don’t want to tell me who did this? Fine. I’ll find out on my own, and I’ll have the name by the time I pick you up for supper. What you don’t want to do is deal with him or his case until I have that name. Kicking him in the balls might’ve just pissed him off more, and now you’ve let a bully stew on it for a while, which might be dangerous for you. Got it?”
“You have no right to interfere,” she whispered.
“Baby, I’ve been fuckin’ you for months. That gives me every right.” Anger glowed dark in his eyes.
“We’re done. Get out.”
His eyes softened. “You shouldn’t make statements you can’t back up.”
She shoved against his ripped abs.
He didn’t move a millimeter.
And then he did.
His head dipped, and his mouth found her neck and wandered up to her ear. His teeth scraped, and then his tongue licked the slight wound.
Of its own volition, her body did a full tremble.
He leaned back. “That.”
Her mind fuzzed.
His mouth slammed down on hers. She knew his kiss—often dreamed about it. Not soft and sweet . . . not even lustful. It was dangerous. From day one, she’d tasted danger on his tongue, and it burned her hotter than she’d ever been.
Never had she dated a bad boy, but after living her desired routine-driven life for years, she’d craved adventure, and he filled that need. He drew out a wildness she hadn’t realized she possessed.
He held her flush against the door, kissing her hard, sending a craving along her nerves that almost hurt. His tongue went to work, his left hand keeping her jaw open for him. His right hand found her hip and dragged her against the obvious bulge in his jeans. By the time he released her, she’d stopped thinking completely.
“What time are you finished today?” he asked, his breath heating her face.
“Fi-five,” she stuttered.
He leaned back and gently put her to the side. “Stay in the office until I come for you at five, Zara.” He ran his thumb across her bottom lip. “Cross me on this, baby, and I ain’t gonna be gentle.” He had already shut the door behind himself before she could take a whole breath.
She blinked several times, her fingers going to her still-tingling mouth. What had just happened?
