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.

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. Fans of New York Times bestsellers Maya Banks, Lisa Gardner, and Lisa Jackson will love DEADLY SILENCE.

Electrifying suspense around every corner! A prologue dipping into their childhood is our first glimpse of how the Jones brothers came to be, and as the start of their story 20 years later plays out, we're drawn into this case quickly. Ryker senses that Zara is in danger and won't let it go until he finds out who the source is. The case that he was initially there to work on starts to heat up and a past they hoped to keep there rears it's ugly head. There is a good amount of intrigue with some intense sexual heat ... and even thought a part of the story is a little far fetched, the characters are written so well that you can make yourself almost believe! Private Investigator Ryker Jones feels like he's falling apart at the seems. He and his brothers just lost a client at their investigative agency in a very brutal way, and he's going to stop at nothing to catch the person responsible. When it puts them in the same town as his occasional fling, he can't resist taking a chance and spending more time with her ... but when his past comes knocking, danger is on top of them and it's paramount that he keep her safe! Paralegal Zara Remington can tell Ryker is keeping big secrets from her, and she doesn't like it one bit. If he a say in her life, he better get with the program and realize that if she's in his life, she needs to be in it all. When secrets from his past start to unravel and he has no choice but to fill her in on what their life is all about, she's not so sure she wants to know anymore ... how is this even possible?

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! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

There were times that I was BEYOND frustrated with Ryker but after a while you will come to realize that there is a reason for his actions and they are all about Zara. Great suspenseful story!!!

In an attempt to secretly help her friend out of a very public and messy divorce Paralegal Zara Remington finds herself in a little trouble of her own, someone has found out what she is doing and they want her stopped at all costs. Now with her life is in danger, she must rely on a certain sexy private investigator named Ryker, and his brothers to keep her safe... but unfortunately for her they seem to be in a little trouble of their own. Now she finds herself thrust into a whole new world of danger, one that is not only revealing secrets about Ryker that she never saw coming, and that could alter the budding relationship she has with him! Ryker is good at what he does, and goes above and beyond to protect his clients, but when he loses a client he takes it really hard and he sets out to get exact revenge... which has him hunting down a known serial killer. Between him and his brothers he is sure that they can catch the killer and set things straight, but unfortunately for them they also have a dangerous past they are running from and it is starting to close in on them too. Then if that wasn't enough to handle, Ryker's lover Zara finds herself in a bit of trouble too, and Ryker can't help but get involved... now he is forced to fight the evil lurking from every corner and it's becoming harder and harder for good to prevail this time around! The suspenseful and sexy read grabbed my attention from the very first paragraph and held on tight until the last page was swiped... WOW what a read!! Just when I thought I had a handle on what was going on, then a new unexpected development would come along, and it would have me hooked all over again! These brothers are seriously something else, they are highly skilled, sexy as hell, alpha to the bone, and will go above and beyond to protect those they care about... I mean seriously what more could you want in a character!!! Every now and then I like to settle down with a good romantic suspense story that amps up my heart rate, and keeps me teetering on the edge of my seat, and after reading this story I think I may just have found a new "go-to" author for that!! Highly recommend this one, it had everything you could possibly want in a story; thrilling suspense, heart-pounding action, well crafted characters with smoldering chemistry, and plenty of toe curling romance to boot!! Highly recommend it!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.

This book contains everything romantic suspense should. There are many plot twists and turns to keep you glued to your book along with a sexy love story. You're sure to like it as much as I did. It's a fantastic start to a new 'continuation' series.

NUMBER OF HEARTS 4 REVIEW: Great start to Ms. Zanetti’s new series. The Blood Brothers series is a spin off of the Sin Brother’s series. While you don’t have to read the Sin Brother’s first I would recommend it!! There is a lot that happens in that series that I believe is going to have a huge impact on the Blood Brothers. Deadly Silence introduces us to Ryker, Denver and Heath. These three have been friends and family since they bonded in the boys home they lived in. And they just happened to be some of Dr. Madison’s pet projects. There is a lot that is going on in this story. We have multiple storylines happening at once, but Ms. Zanetti does a great job of balancing each of these stories and give us answers to almost everything (because she has to leave some questions for us). I really liked Ryker & Zara. Ryker is the dark mysterious bad boy who has a big heart that every girl wishes she could find. Zara is the perfect match for Ryker. She is not a pushover and she challenges Ryker every step of the way. Of course we have to talk about the other Jones’ brothers Heath & Denver. They are just as dark and mysterious but there is something about each of these guys that will shock us and possibly even shock their brother too. I am looking forward to seeing where Ms. Zanetti is going to take this series and how much she is going to make us suffer!

Loved Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti! This is the first book I have ever read from Rebecca Zanetti and let me tell you....I really enjoyed the story of Ryker and Zara. I felt so bad for Ryker and his brothers Heath & Denver on what they went through in their young lives and what they had to endure to escape. Zara a young Paralegal who does not want to be like her mother who let men dictate her life. What Zara and Ryker started was a casual relationship until she started cooking him dinner, dressing up for him, and making him feel at home. Ryker knew that Zara was special and little by little he started to let her into his heart that was filled with rage and bad memories. Even though, Zara did not want to let Ryker into her heart. She knew what she felt for him was real. With so much drama and chaos that surrounds their life. In a moment when she thought she could lose Ryker she knew that she loved him. It is a great story filled of uncertainity, trusting, believing, family, and love. I volunteer to review book for Netgalley to give an honest review.

This is the first book I have read by Rebecca Zanetti and I really enjoyed it! Ryker and Zara are great and I really love how the story seems to have two plots, one for Ryker and one for Zara which really helped the story be as great as it was. I was never confused and I’m glad that Rebecca wrote it that way. I hate being confused in books, throws the whole flow off, so that excited me! Even when she introduced new characters toward the end. Which I think if I had read the other series then they wouldn’t have actually been new to me, but I haven’t yet. So I’m glad she did a little introducing. I completely recommend this book to you if you enjoy romantic suspense. Very engaging and keeps your attention the whole time! *I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

I loved this book, just loved it. Deadly Silence is the first book in Rebecca Zanetti's Blood Brothers Series. It is a spin-off from her Sin Brothers Series, which I haven't read yet, but believe me I will be reading it soon. Deadly Silence is romantic suspense at its best, with a little bit of Syfy mixed in. Ryker Jones is the perfect mix of danger, hotness, and pure badass. He and his brothers, Heath and Denver, have a knack for finding people, and are the best private investigators you can hire to do just that. They have a mysterious and dangerous past, one they've been running from for quite some time. However, when Zara Remington turns out to be much more than a fling for Ryker, he finds himself wanting to stay close to her. Zara is a paralegal, and when a case her firm is working on suddenly puts her in some serious danger, Ryker's protective instincts kick in and he finds himself doing anything and everything in his power to keep her safe. Meanwhile, he and his brothers find themselves facing their own past, whether they're ready to or not. The one thing Ryker never wanted though, was for his past and present (meaning Zara) to collide........ As things become even more dangerous, the answers to questions Ryker has had all his life are revealed, explaining why he and his brothers are the way they are and why they can do the things they do. During this process, there are nonstop twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages to the wee hours of the morning, not wanting to put the story down. That, combined with the red hot romance, makes for one fantastic and exciting read. I am dying to read the next book in the series, as well as get to know the Dean Brothers from Zanetti's Sin Brothers Series, who make an appearance in this book as well. Deadly Silence is a must read for fans of Rebecca Zanetti and fans of romantic suspense as well. I most definitely recommend picking this one up.

....because when you start those book, you won't wanna put it down. Rebecca has put together a high adrenaline tale with plots and subplots, a sizzling alpha, a strong willed woman, romantic tension, family loyalty, danger and suspense. Then, if that wasn't enough, she had the nerve to throw the Sins Brothers characters in to make your heart race. Waiting on the next installment and bouncing around on my toes!

Ryker Jones isn’t the type of man to take no for an answer. He gives the term alpha male a whole new meaning, actually. He’s stubborn, strong willed and protects those he loves with everything he’s got. Deadly Silence had so many twists and turns happening as I read that I sometimes had to stop and progress what had just happened in order to keep up. It's easy to sit down and read this in one sitting but I am actually glad I broke it off in peaces and really savored each word. Even though I didn’t read the first series (this is a spin off of The Sin Brothers series), I found myself loving this book regardless. If you have read the Sin Brothers series, you will undoubtedly love Deadly Silence. If you have not read it, I guarantee you will be picking it up as soon as you put the Blood Brothers down- which is what I did. Deadly Silence was jam packed with action, mystery, nail-biting-suspense and romance.  
 From the first page to the very last, Rebecca Zanetti knows exactly how to keep the reader lost in the story and begging for more.  *Disclaimer: A Review Copy was kindly was provided to Reads By Rose by the author in exchange for an honest review.

**4.5 Stars** From an early age Ryker learned life wasn't fair after going from foster home to foster home, until ending up at the boys home he termed hell on earth. The only good thing to come of that place was meeting Heath and Denver, friends that would become the brothers of his heart. Now, twenty years later and a private detective, he still doesn't trust easily, if at all, and Denver and Heath, also his business partners, are the only relationships he allows in his life. His arrangement with Zara, a paralegal, is purely physical and temporary...or so he tells himself. When he arrives to see Zara after being away for weeks, he's determined to find out who hit her and inflict his own type of pain upon them. However, she refuses to tell him, reminding him what they have is only sex. Zara is enjoying her first physical only "relationship." She and Ryker met when her law firm hired him for a case. Their attraction was immediate and needed to be satisfied. After a steamy night together, both agreed to make it into an arrangement, an exclusive one, for however long it lasted. When Ryker refuses to let her evade answering his question regarding who hit her, she isn't sure what to make of him. Plus, her friend, Julie, is going through a divorce and her husband, Jay, the mayor, the man who hit Zara, is being represented by Zara's firm, meaning she could get in trouble for helping her friend. Zara, knowing she wants more than Ryker can give and she's tired of all his secrecy and unsure of why the dynamic recently changed, decides to their arrangement, however, Ryker refuses to let this be the end of them. Which surprises Ryker, but he can't understand the panic he feels at her leaving him. Ryker can no longer deny what he's known since he met her...he's keeping her. He just needs to convince her he's all in and get her to admit she feels the same way. Who's behind the strange situations and attempts concerning Zara? What's the truth regarding Jay and Julie's marriage and impending divorce? Has Julie been lying to Zara this whole time? Will Zara go to prison for a crime she didn't commit? Who is framing Zara and why? Has the past come back for Ryker, Heath, and Denver? Will secrets regarding their childhood, their very existence, finally be revealed to them? Was it a coincidence or intentional that they all ended up at the same boys' home? Why were they given regular emotional, mental, and physical tests while there? What connection does their new client, Greg, have to their past? Does he know more than he's telling? Will Zara be used to hurt Ryker? Will Ryker and Zara uncover who's behind everything? Will they get their HEA? I wonder if book two, Lethal Lies, will be Heath or Denver's story? I hope it's Denver and Noni, the woman he loved and had to leave behind. “We had only a month together. It’s been a year, and I still taste her.” - Denver to Ryker regarding Noni One-click now and find out what happens when two people both afraid to love find their soul mate in each other. Also, while this is a spinoff of the author's Sin Brothers series, I believe this one can easily be read without feeling lost, though I do recommend reading those books as it is a great series and those characters do appear in this book, having a connection to Ryker, Heath, and Denver. **I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.**

✦Review: DEADLY SILENCE (Blood Brothers) by Rebecca Zanetti Publication Date: October 4, 2016 Genre: Romantic Suspense Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated: 5 Stars REVIEW: Wow! What a great new series by Zanetti! It’s full of non-stop action, suspense and mystery; all woven together with a hot romance. If I had to say one negative thing, it would be that I wished I liked the characters better in the beginning. I understood why their characters were hard to get to know, but it took a little time to care about them. The story was a wild ride and every time I thought “ok, this is the storyline”, another twist would pop up. It did not become muddled however, as it all made sense to set the groundwork for the books to some. I for one can’t wait to read them all! *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

deadly silence is a romantic thriller by rebecca zanetti that further explores the world she created in her sin brothers series. i haven't actually read that series, but it isn't essential to because the characters are new and while the situation the characters are in the middle of is informed by things that were happening in the original series, you catch up as you go along and don't really feel like you are at a loss. or at least you are no more at a loss than the characters in the novel, so it's all good. ryker jones had a terrible childhood. but in the midst of the hell that was his childhood he forged an unbreakable bond with two other boys, his blood brothers, heath and denver. together they've escaped their past, but that doesn't mean that their past isn't trying to catch up to them. they've spent their adult lives searching for the lost, searching for something they're not even sure they can find, answers they may never be prepared to handle. even worse, everything is going crazy. the serial killer case they've been working on shows no signs of breaking open, meanwhile more red-headed girls are turning up dead. a teenage hacker has somehow burrowed through all their security and is asking them to dig into someone from their shared past. and the woman ryker has become involved w ith, zara, is in danger--something that tugs at his protective instincts and the heart he has tried to keep from becoming attached to anything to protect not only himself, but everything in the world he could lose. while this is suspenseful and the characters at different points find themselves in mortal danger, this isn't unnecessarily graphic. and there is a fair amount of steaminess between the two leads, so i almost just categorized this as seriously romantic. but it's more than just a romance. ryker and zara go through a lot and at the end the only thing that's tied up in a neat bow is their relationship. which totally works for me. i'm intrigued enough by everything else that i will be checking out the next novels in the series. **deadly silence will publish on october 4, 2016. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/forever (grand central publishing) in exchange for my honest review.

Hair-raisingly thrilling and sexy. Another gripping story by Rebecca Zanetti! Ryker Jones has made it his life’s mission to protect the one’s he cares about, so losing control is something he can’t afford. Not if the PI agency he runs with his brothers has lost a client, not with the sexy and assertive woman he’d been trying to keep things casual with but who has been slowly inching her way into his heart and especially not when someone is out to get her. Can he find a way keep everyone safe? Zara Remington knows next to nothing about the sexy, dark and secretive man she’s been seeing, but there’s something irresistibly appealing about him she can’t resist. And now that helping her friend has her under police scrutiny, Ryker is only one who can help. Can she be strong enough for them to survive when secrets are revealed and they’re assaulted on all fronts? Love and hate, life and death, thrills and chills, Rebecca Zanetti is an expert at stirring a wide range of emotions in her books, Deadly Silence is no exception. A spin-off of the incredible Sin Brothers series, this first book in the Blood Brothers set introduces us to three men whose bond goes beyond blood, suffering together through beatings and mistreatments at the boy’s home they lived in and being subjected to odd tests and military style training, Ryker, Heath and Denver form their own little family, vowing to protect each other. While the three of them continue to look for answer from their past, they decide to settle in Cisco in order to catch a serial killer. Ryker takes advantage of this to try to go beyond the casual limits he and Zara had originally establish because he just can’t get enough of the feisty woman who wears sexy underwear and bakes just for him. But he’s unwilling to share his past with her and even though she’s undoubtedly attracted to him and his alpha dominant ways, she’s reluctant to take a risk on a man who’ll most probably break her heart. As the plot unfolds, Ryker and Zara’s relationship evolves from sizzling lust to deep trust and delicious romance a mist exciting action, suspense and a whole lot of twists are revealed as new and old characters are expertly introduced. I’m not going to spoil you, but it is a spinoff for a reason so watch out for you’re your favorite characters from past books! Ryker and Zara were as great together as they were on their own. He’s a decidedly alpha male who’s loyal to a fault and is used to taking on the responsibility of the people he loves. He’s rough around the edges but has an incredibly big, protective and loving heart. Zara is his perfect complement, she’s sweet, caring, stubborn and brave enough to stand up to him. I just loved it when the two of them went head to head. Deadly Silence is book #1 in the Blood Brothers series by Rebecca Zanetti who writes consistently fascinating, nonstop action and smoldering romances. It’s a fast paced, exciting standalone you won’t want to miss. Told from several points of view, with a happy ending but still lots to resolve.

I was so excited to read this because I love the Sin Brothers series. Deadly Silence is just as good! (And I am so happy that we got to see a brief glimpse of the Sin Brothers. Especially Nate! Hopefully we get to see them more in future books because I missed them and loved seeing their iterations with our new heroes.) I won't give too much away, but readers will enjoy this book whether they have read the other series or not. It has tons of action and romance with lots of intrigue and suspense. It's a quick and sexy read that will get your blood pumping. Deadly Silence is written in the fast and addictive writing all of Rebecca's books are known for and I cannot get enough of. It kept me on my toes and I cannot wait to read more in this series! **I also really like this cover!

I liked this book. I do have to admit that it took me awhile to really get hooked by the story but once I was I really enjoyed it. I jumped at the chance to read this book since it is the start of a new series by an author that I have wanted to read for a long time. The story had a lot of great elements added to the appeal of the book. I think that the main reason that I had some trouble getting into the story was because I just couldn't totally wrap my head around Ryker's behavior. I love an alpha male Hero as much as the next girl but he was a bit over the top. I really couldn't figure out why Zara would want to put up with him. As the book progressed and Ryker and Zara spent more time together their actions toward each other started to make more sense to me. In the end, I do think that their relationship worked very well. Ryker was an great characters. He has had a difficult past and has dedicated himself to finding the lost along with his two blood brothers. He has some special abilities which make him very good at what he does. It has always just been him and his brothers with no other connections. He has been seeing Zara very casually. When he sees that she may be in trouble, he becomes very protective and realizes that maybe it wasn't really so casual after all. Zara has also been through a lot as well. She has built a life that she is proud of working as a paralegal. She also tries very hard to help others and has sacrificed a lot to assist an old friend. She knows that things between her and Ryker have no chance of becoming anything more than physical so she takes what she can get. When she finds herself in trouble, she accepts Ryker's help but also makes a few brave moves herself. I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This new series is a spin-off of the Sin Brothers series, which I still need to read. If you haven't read the earlier series, this is a great starting point since everything is explained very well. I can't wait to read the next Blood Brothers book! I received an advance reader edition of this book from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

OK first: There is so much action that you can’t put it down! I found my own heart pumping with adrenaline! If you aren’t careful you won’t see what hits you next! For those who have read the Sin Brothers series: We get to see those brothers at the end of this book! Woot Woot! Ryker and his two “brothers” own a company that finds lost people. He knows that his brothers and he have some unusual abilities but don’t know exactly why. They were all raised in the same boy’s home and were tested by a woman doctor on their mental and physical capabilities. They were also beaten a lot. Then one day (you have to read more about why they did it) they put the whole place on fire and ran away. They have been together as family ever since. They don’t form other attachments since they are always on the run. While working on one case, a young boy comes in after hacking their system and demands they find the same doctor that raised them but with a different name. This boy also has some strange abilities as well. They don’t want the case but after being blackmailed by the boy and they see his abilities they offer him sanctuary and take the case. He comes with some serious baggage. But he kind of tugs on my heart strings. Then Ryker finds himself getting serious with this one girl, Zara. He knows he should break it off but he can’t help how his heart feels. Zara is a paralegal and is on a divorce case of a friend of hers. She is getting herself into trouble by helping her friend as her husband is whom the law firm is representing. Zara quickly finds herself way over her head and Ryker finds himself trying to help her. So there are several cases going on at the same time and they all need some action time! It is exhilarating to go from one action to another and wonder how long they can keep it up; shoot I’m exhausted just reading about all the stuff they have to keep up with! This is Ryker’s story and I’m looking forward to the other brothers’ stories and see more of the Sin Brothers too! If you like mega action, superhuman abilities, The Sin Brothers series, fighting scenes, Legal issues, helicopters, bad PoPo’s, and finding love than this might be for you!

OMG! This book grabs you and will not let go! I started it Sunday afternoon and despite fixing a very quick supper and even getting in a short cat nap, I managed to finish it by 2 AM. Generally, I'm not real fond of the Alpha alpha male that stands around beating his chest and demanding that he knows the best for everyone. I tended to bristle up every time Ryker pulled that crap with Zara, but trot out a kid, a Grams and a couple of brothers and you see this He-man guy kinda melt. So okay! I'll give him and this awesome book 5 stars. This book has some great twists and if you were a fan of the Sin Brothers series (and who wouldn't be) you get a reunion with the Dean Brothers. I loved the fast paced action of this story and I'm not going to say much about the actual storyline as I don't want to ruin any of the Ah-ha moments. I will say that Zanetti is at her best with this type of story and has you rooting for the good guys and laughing out loud while booing the villains. So rush out and get a copy or download the ebook and then be prepared to not move for hours while devouring this story.

5 - "I ain't easy, I know... but I'll be worth it." Stars! Rebecca Zanetti excels at delivering up a romantic suspense story-line, especially when built around a series, and including recurring characters in each book, and her new Blood Brothers series delivered on every expectation that I have of her in this regard. Although an off-shoot from the previously published Sin Brothers series, Deadly Silence can absolutely be read as a standalone. There is character crossover from that series to this, but for me that just made it all the more special in its reading… Ahem, Dean Brothers anyone ;) Life, not genetics, had made them family… Ryker Jones and his brothers Heath and Denver have set up base in Cisco, Wyoming, after spending many years on the move. Investigators of a sort, they specialise in finding those that are lost. Each brother has his own particular skill set, Ryker being the muscle, if you will, although as the book progresses you quickly find out that none of them are what you would call shabby in their efforts at fighting the bad guys, it’s just that Heath is more their public face, and Denver with little interest in talking, their behind the scenes tech guy. But together they are an unbreakable team, family and most importantly for each of them for their own specific reasons brothers. Zara and Ryker are together at the start of the book, so there is no relationship building as such, but what began as Ryker, rolling in for some fun between the sheets with her whenever his is in town has developed into a little more for Zara as the months have passed. Things are a little up in the air between them though, as now that he is based in town Zara isn’t too sure whether she wants to move their causal relationship onto a more firmer footing. "You scare me" "I’d never hurt you…" "You’d never mean to hurt me… But you’re all or nothing. Pure trust or none at all…" Ryker in typical Zanetti fashion, goes all Alpha on her, and pretty much takes that decision from her hands. Especially when it turns out she is in the cross hairs, and Ryker isn’t certain who it is that is after her, his has enemies, and Zara is not lacking in that area either due to the nature of the work she is doing. "You want everything…" "I’ll get it too." If you have read anything by this author before, you know you are in for a deliciously dirty alpha male, they usually aren’t shy at handing out the odd spanking if they feel it is due, and sex is often used as a way of pulling the sassy female into line. I don’t mind this, it’s what I expect from the authors heroes, and Ryker Jones is the epitome of all that is good about the men she writes. The story-line keeps you on your toes, with new villains coming to the fore, and a few lose ends from the Sin Brothers series reprising their roles with aplomb. You get enough information on Heath and Denver to know that their books will offer up more Alpha goodness, but their tastes look like they run in different directions to their brothers. The safest place for her was with him, yet it was also the most dangerous to her heart. This doesn’t end on a cliffy per se, it’s left more in the, 'no shirt needs to be blown up right now' category. This is a series, so you know everything isn’t likely to be resolved in the first book. But the scene has been well and truly set, the players have made themselves known (well most of them have anyway) and the stage is ready for the rest of the Acts to play out. ARC provided.
