5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome start to this new spin-off series 4 October 2016
By Megan Sanchez - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Deadly Silence is the 1st book in Rebecca Zanetti’s new spin-off series Blood Brothers. To be clear, this series stand on its own two feet. If you haven’t read her Sin Brothers series yet, no worries. I realized while reading this that I haven’t yet finished that series, so I will be going back shortly and finishing them up. It did not affect my enjoyment at all, but at the end there is a cameo starring the Sin Brothers that I think would be squee-worthy if I had finished their books. Ooops. I’ll be going back now and doing that.

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…


So there’s that.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving this new series and cannot wait for more 5 October 2016
By Kim U - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Sins Brothers series was my first Rebecca Zanetti experience, and Matt and Jory Dean are still 2 of my favorite alpha heroes to this day. Deadly Silence is the first book in the new spinoff Blood Brothers series, and it is every bit as good as the books in the original series.

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars The evil Dr. Madison is back... 8 October 2016
By Cindy O - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well it seems the evil Dr. Madison days of creating genetically engineered children isnt over. If you haven't read the Sin Brother's series I recommend reading that before this one as it gives a lot of the background on Dr Madison and her experiments.

So after reading this I think there are some good things and also some bad things. The good – We get a whole new set of brothers stories. As with the Dean brothers, the three Blood Brothers we are introduced to are just as fascinating. Each of course comes with their own set of super human capabilities. Even though they were not raised to be super soldiers/killers like the Dean brother's were, their childhoods in the orphanages was still full of abuse. Now grown, and still having to hide out from the Dr and said abusers in their past, they have made it their mission to find the lost and even help track down serial killers. Ryker, Heath and Denver are ALPHA men to the core and their inner beasts come out when women are in trouble – and if it happens to be a woman they have feelings for – watch out.

Now the bad – other than 3 new men to drool over there is nothing original to the story. Its the same Dr. playing God with the making of human lives and frankly I was tired of her by the end of the Sin Brothers series. Her hard on for creating all these genetically engineered children along with what borders on pedophilia with some of the boys gets redundant after so many books. It was also hard to connect to the romance as it had started before the book takes place. Even though I read the first series this book even to me felt like we were thrown in to the middle of story – I cant imagine what those that have never read the first series would feel like.

Me personally – I wish Dr. Madison would meet her demise and the brother's stories be about something else..

Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti

First in a spin-off of the Sin Brothers series. Stands alone.
A suspense thriller, slightly paranormal, romance. Enhanced hearing, strength and speed along with high IQ's. A mad doctor at wrk. An evil, cold, mad scientist doctor at work.

I loved the Sin Brothers for their protectiveness of women, children and the beaten down. And the powerful women that stood up and fought for themselves. No victims here.
The same can be said for this series so far.

Brothers and family can be made and their relationships and loyalty are all encompassing.
In this book, three teens in a boys home become blood-oath brothers in the introduction and the story shows their support and 100% commitment to each other.
Ryker and Zara grow closer and soon are super protective of their little family.
When Zara cooked for the men, they ate with super appreciation and were not stingy when their thanks. It was adorable when Ben then bonded and "followed her around like a duckling".

Yes, super he-men that can be a bit sexist, but they mean well and their vulnerability just makes you want to hug them. You can't blame the women for turning around and wanting to take care of the men right back.

An awesome adventure, romance and thriller. Not a cliff hanger but situations are not all wrapped up.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced, romantic suspense that totally engages your right from the start! 7 October 2016

Whew....After finishing up Deadly Silence by Rebecca Zanetti, I am mentally exhausted because this story had a lot going on and had so many twists and turns it made my head hurt...but it a good way - a very good way!

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!
