Deadly Silence

deadly-silence

Ryker Jones and his “brothers” have many irons in the fires with their agency. He knows with his past he shouldn’t have become involved with paralegal Zara Remington but he will now do anything he can to keep her safe.

Zara knows she is taking a chance with her career by helping a friend who’s getting a divorce, especially with her husband a client of the firm she works for. Suddenly her world spirals out of control and the only thing she is sure of is Ryker, but can she really trust him. There is more she doesn’t know than things she does know. When her problems come to an explosive head and his past comes following they can only trust each other and the brothers that life had chosen for him. But waiting in the wings is a surprise that none of them could have expected.

Ryker is all alpha with a soft spot for those in need of help, he would do anything for his brothers and he knows he should give Zara up, because he knows that they will be running soon. But he can’t especially when he knows she is in trouble and needs him. Zara is confused by Ryker, she wants more but she is trying hard to accept the friends with benefits that he seemed to want. Then he goes and changes the rules and she finds herself part of a family, something she always wanted, but this one has danger as its shadow.

DEADLY SILENCE is an incredible, intensely powerful read. Fans of Rebecca Zanetti know that this is book one of a spin-off of her popular Sin Brothers books. It is the story of Zara and Ryker while giving us time to get to know his “blood brothers” Heath and Denver with their horrible abusive past. With the past coming back to haunt them, we get to see what the evil doctor that we all came to hate in the past has been up to. Yes, she is alive and still planning to do her experiments, unless they can stop her … and they are all willing to die trying.

If you loved the Sin Brothers books then you will definitely love DEADLY SILENCE. It is intense, steamy, funny, heartbreaking and action packed. Do not think this is a quick pick-up, put-down read … so be prepared.

Knowing how much I love suspense and deep covert type books, I was advised to try Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series.   So naturally I went and bought the very first book to find out who this guy was and I suppose I wasn’t really surprised when I discovered just how wonderful it was to discover a new to me author and a series I fully intend to follow!    I missed my calling – in that had I been introduced at an early age to covert ops and such I would have signed right up! Yet in spite of my day dreams I live vicariously through the written page of masters of the genre, like Mr. Vince Flynn.

Mitch Rapp initially was a top athlete whose thoughts of being any type of super agent was the furthest thing from his mind before tragedy struck.  Decades of partisan politics had left the country in a vulnerable position but thankfully that was about to change with the help of Cold War and CIA operations director Thomas Stansfield who knows we must prepared for the rise of Islamic terroism most knew was coming.

Mitch Rapp had lost the love of his life on the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack.  Now he was out for revenge, and a chance with little more than six month of intense training has prepared him to go after the arms dealers who are at the beginning of the chain of madmen which Mitch is decidedly ready to eradicate.

Absolute, suspense, and high octane writing kept me on the edge of the seat through out this incredible audio version of AMERICAN ASSASSIN.   George Guidall’s performance was spot on thrusting the listener right into the middle of the action.   Personally, I am grateful to those who pointed me in Vince Flynn’s direction.  This is a series I can’t wait to sink my teeth into!

Review: Destined for a King by Ashlyn Macnamara

(The Bastard Brotherhood #1)

Calista Thorne is destined for a king, but when a gang of landless knights attack her ancestral home of Blackbriar Keep she is ready to defend and sinks a poisoned tip arrow into the commander of the opposing force.  Torch stays conscious long enough to lay claim to the keep and Calista herself before passing out leaving Calista to either cure Torch or watch her father be executed.

Hating the position she is in Calista knows that saving Torch is going to be touch and go, she must save him, and as the days pass, she becomes a little more enthralled with his tautly muscled body, and his whispered demands.

Torch is determined to win back the throne which is rightly his by birth from the man who killed his father.  He has lived in shadows for years within the Bastard Brotherhood when in truth he should be king.

The adventure and excitement of the battles,  bravery, betrayals, kept the pace of this book rolling along at a great clip, so it’s definitely a fast read.   A read which I derived great pleasure from reading, keeping the reader totally focused both on the simmering romance and excitement of battles and suspense.

DESTINED FOR A KING is the first book in the Bastard Brotherhood series which I am sure I will be following!
