If his past doesn't catch up to them first...

Read chapter one

This is a spin-off series from the Sin Brothers featuring a new set of men with special talents and dangerous enemies...

Ryker Jones is a bad a**...strong, intelligent, intimidating, dangerous, and commanding. He has anger issues and an "inner monster" he has to keep in control. He has a private Detective agency with his adopted brothers, Heath and Denver, that specializes in finding the hard to find They all have some special skills that make them adept at their jobs. But their early pasts are a mystery to them. They adopted each other at a young age in a boys home and vowed to protect each other. But they take each failure to heart. A serial killer case has been haunting them and the FBI, and it is taking a toll on them.

Zara Remington is a paralegal that Ryker has done business with in the office and in the bedroom. They have had a casual thing going where they share a meal and some hot sexy times. She is funny, sweet, smart, and caring. But she has some abandonment issues, so is also guarded. But when Ryker starts infiltrating her life more and more and stepping out of the box that they were supposed to be in, she gets confused. But Ryker is protective and possessive, and when he sees someone he cares about in trouble or danger, he will do anything to take care of them.

This story has a lot of layers to the suspense plot. There are threats and danger coming from various possible sources. Zara can be in danger from situations in her own life or surrounding her friend. But Ryker and his brothers have enemies as well. Their past is still chasing them even though they do not even know the whole truth. And a new person on the scene brings more information that could provide some light into their pasts. Ryker has a strong need to keep his growing group safe. But it is hard to tell who all is coming at them and why.

And in the middle of all of this chaos is a hot and steamy love story of a bossy, protective man and a strong woman he is willing to fight to keep in his life. I really liked Ryker and Zara together. They had such great foreplay and chemistry. They were volatile, passionate, and challenged each other. But they were both protective too.

It will take all of their resources and some they did not even know they had to take on all of the danger. I enjoyed getting to know his adopted brothers, Heath and Denver, and I am looking forward to their stories. They truly chose each other and would die for the others. They each have their skills, but also their own issues to deal with. I enjoyed the cameos and weaving of characters from other series adding more humor, banter, drama, and emotion.

The romantic suspense and subtle paranormal aspects of these series make it more interesting and intriguing. It keeps building to an action-packed climax. There are continuing story arcs that will  tie the books in the series together. These add more mystery, excitement, and depth. This was sexy, funny, suspenseful, mysterious, and full of action. 
And there is such a theme of brotherhood, family, and home in these books. I cannot wait for more with Heath in Lethal Lies

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. 

This book has sat on my TBR list (and my physical bookshelf) for quite some time, and I wish I knew why it took me so long to actually read it. Deadly Silence is a great continuation of the Sin Brothers series, not a follow on, but a spin off. These are not the same men we met in Sin Brothers, but they are of similar background. Ryker, Heath and Denver are blood brothers. Creating a family out of the bonds that pulled them together as children in a group home, these three men now work together to find the lost, and the answers about their childhoods that haunt them.

Ryker Jones has questions about his past, but knows he can only ask so many questions before the people he is trying to avoid find him. He and his brothers are intelligent, strong, and highly trained. Trailing a serial killer while also search for clues to their pasts means Ryker hasn’t settled down in one place for long. But in his travels and work in Cisco, WY, he has a a casual arrangement that has turned not so casual.

Zara Remington, paralegal, is in over her head at work and with Ryker. Though they started casual, things have changed despite her best efforts. She finds herself cooking meals when she knows he’ll be around and keeping his favorite beer on hand. She isn’t willing to admit things have changed, but Ryker can be pretty persuasive when he sets his mind to something. In a sticky situation at work, she is caught between needing her job and loyalty to a friend, and it seems that her choices have put her in danger.

Ryker isn’t sure what angle Zara’s threat is coming from. She says she’s fine, but the bruise on her cheek says otherwise. Then unexplained things start happening, and he doesn’t know if the danger is from her secrets, or his. I loved watching his protectiveness ramp up as he realized he didn’t want to leave Zara behind, nor did he want to see her threatened in any way.

Zara is a great match for Ryker, both challenging him and taking care of him in a way he had never experienced before. As the brothers circle around Zara, she takes each one in as well, becoming almost a sister to Ryker’s brothers. The care she showed each man gave them a glimpse of what Ryker was willing to fight for.

This book was filled with suspense and action. I loved watching how this story begin to weave into the Sin Brothers, feeling separate from the original but also connected. Once the story hit the point where the two series collide, I couldn’t put this one down and had to know the outcome. There were just so many surprises, it kept me reading and wondering long past when I should have stopped.
I look forward to Denver and Heath’s stories as well as finding where the series plot arch will take these brothers.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.


“All the more reason to get you out of town,” Heath said quietly.
She shook her head. “No. I’m staying.” Her words were brave, but her chest hurt. No way could she deal with a serial killer all on her own. She could train every day for the rest of her life and not end up as practiced or as deadly as Heath already was, and she knew it. “I understand you have other cases and people after you. So leave, and I’ll handle this myself.”
“Those are big words, baby,” he said softly.
Her lip quivered, and she bit down on it. “I know. I promised her, Heath. It’s all I have left to give to her.”
He paused, understanding crossing his expression. “Ah, sweetheart. Your sister wouldn’t want that for you.” His voice turned velvety and soft. Soothing.
Anya nodded. “I know. But she was my sister. We shared blood and part of a childhood. She took me trick-or-treating when I was five, and it’s one of my best memories. Then when I needed help as an adult, she didn’t hesitate. She came to me right away, like family. She was the first person I really cared about in far too long, and it hurts like hell that I got her killed.”
He breathed out, the emotion in his eyes deepening.
She swallowed. “I have to do this for her. Either you understand that or you don’t.”
“Why don’t you just let us handle it?”
She pressed her point. “I could, but you need me. I’m the bait.” Inwardly, she winced at the description. That wouldn’t help her to convince him. “Also, here’s the deal. This could be a long op. At some point, you have to leave and deal with whatever is haunting you from your past. When you do, I’ll just challenge him again, and next time you won’t be around to assist.”
“That’s extortion,” Heath said, amusement curving his lip.
She grinned. “Apparently I’m getting quite good at it.”
Heath shook his head. “You’re putting me in an untenable position, baby.”
“No, I’m not.” She shrugged out of his hold. Finally. “I’m not yours to protect, Heath. We’re not together, and we’re not responsible for each other.” The words sliced through her even as she said them. “You’ve been more than clear on that score.”
“There’s something here, Anya. Maybe something real and lasting, if I get everything done I need to do.”
She blinked. “What’s that?”
“The less you know the better. Believe me.”
“What a bunch of bullshit. Go back to your ‘This is fake’ proclamation,” she all but yelled. “Your position is one of work . . . and this is just work.”
His chin lifted. “You think this is just work?” The tone—low and filled with tension—zinged through her body.
Her legs trembled with the urge to take a step back. “Yes.”
“Want me to prove otherwise?” His eyes darkened to the color of the sky right before midnight hit.
As a threat, as a warning, it was damn good. But she’d gone too far to give in now. “You can’t.” Yeah, she’d just waved a red flag in front of a bull.
He didn’t move a muscle. His focus on her was so absolute, she wanted to squirm. “You’re into challenging dangerous men these days, aren’t you?”
She kept her stance. “You’re not all that dangerous, Heath.”
His smile stole her breath. Then he moved. Faster than she could track, he had her by the armpits and up in the air as he carried her toward the bedroom with such speed that her legs automatically wound around to clasp his rib cage. By the time she sucked in air to protest, her butt was on the bed, and he was flattening himself over her.
She struggled, her body on fire, fighting the urge to laugh out loud.
His mouth crushed hers, and she stilled.
True danger.
He held nothing back, kissing her hard, pressing her head into the comforter. His tongue worked hers, his powerful body plastered against hers, and his hands dug into her hair to hold her in place. Desire spun so quickly into need she couldn’t breathe, even when he wasn’t controlling her mouth.
She shifted against him, closing her eyes to kiss him back. This was what she’d wanted. All of this.
He nipped her lip, soothing the slight pain with another kiss. Then he traced along her jawline, kissing and nipping, finally reaching her earlobe, where he bit.
She arched against him, letting out a soft sigh.
“Anya.” His fingers tangled in her hair, and erotic pain tingled down her scalp. One of his strong arms slid around her waist and then down. His palm spread across her butt, and he ground her against his hard cock.
Pleasure swamped her, and mini explosions flew through her sex. The idea passed, somewhat fleetingly, that he wasn’t playing. Not at all.
Yet she couldn’t stop herself. Her knees widened, and she rubbed against him. “This feels real,” she whispered.
