Review: Deadly Silence (Blood Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

This was my first Rebecca Zanetti book and it won’t be my last. Loved all the twists and turns. This baby was action packed!!!

Deadly Silence 

Deadly Silence (Blood Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti 



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...


3.5 out of 5 stars


I liked this a lot. It was action packed and had a lot going on (a lot!) which made it super entertaining and slightly chaotic at times. I enjoyed the overall storyline and I really liked all the different characters introduced and the different elements that were in play.

Loved the romance happening between Ryker and Zara. They both totally pushed each other's buttons and since Ryker is totally alpha and Zara is stubborn and had a tendency not to do what she was told it made for some really great scenes. They were sexy, fun, and challenging together and I thought they had great chemistry.

I loved Ryker’s blood brothers Heath and Denver and like how their stories are being set up. I’m excited to reading Lethal Lies (Heath’s story). This was the first book I’ve read by Rebecca Zanetti and had no idea what to expect so some of the things introduced seemed  bit out there to me. However, since this is a spin-off series, I assumed these were established facts and just accepted them so I could enjoy the story.


The writing was really good and the story was fast paced. There is a nice element of suspense and intrigue happening but I felt like it was missing grit and depth. It was definitely fun and enjoyable to read however. I thought it started out awesome and had a great first half. The second half was good too, there just a lot more happening and a lot more commotion making it feel like the story was pin-balling everywhere. It all aligned nice and easy and came together in the end.


All in all a great read. Action packed with twists and turns everywhere. It was a wild ride for sure!
