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...
Deadly Silence was packed with action, danger and romance, and I couldn’t set the book down until I had finished reading! This series is even more fast paced than the Sin Brothers series, and that’s saying something.
Deadly Silence is the first in a spin-off of the Sin Brothers series, and I do think it’s important to read that series first to get some of the things that happen this one. Especially when it comes to some of the mystery surrounding the blood brothers. And there is so much action in this story it was at such a break-neck speed it was hard to catch my breath more than once! I enjoyed both the backstory and the present story, both were important to the overall story and plot.
Ryker is the main character in Deadly Silence, however, his blood brothers, and co-owners of The Lost Bastards Investigative Agency are important as well. Zara was a strong woman, she was able to analyse situations fast, and she didn’t hesitate to walk into danger to do her best to save those she cared about.
The romance took the back-seat in Deadly Silence, but the heat between Zara and Ryker was present even when the main focus was either the mystery or a seemingly impossible fight they had to face in order to survive. I loved the common threads to the Sin Brothers series, and I cannot recommend this book enough to all romantic suspense fans! It’s well written, filled with excitement, and the character development is on point.
Written in third person, past tense, Deadly Silence moves quickly, and holding on to your seat is necessary in some places. I can’t wait to read the other books in this fantastic series.
A roar of motorcycle pipes echoed down her quiet street. Tingles exploded in her abdomen. Hurrying for the shoes, she bit back a wince upon slipping her feet in. The little kitten heels she’d worn to work had been much more comfortable.
Slowly, he shrugged out of his jacket and draped it on his chair, drawing the chair out to sit, his movements controlled and with a hint of something… violent.
Why did people with loved ones get killed while a guy like him, who for so long hadn’t had anybody, still walked the earth?
