3 - "Blood brothers for life." Stars.

Rebecca Zanetti returns to the Blood Brothers series, with book two; Lethal Lies giving us Heath Jones’ story.

He was more than aware of his trigger points, and she hit them all.

This story literally picked up where its predecessor Deadly Silence left off, and as with this series and its predecessor (Sin Brothers) there are always two stories playing out, the bigger one regarding the boys upbringing, and the people involved in that, and the individual brother

Lethal Lies is the second book in Rebecca Zanetti's Blood Brothers series and smoothly transitions from the first story. Now following Heath we get to see him help Anya Best as she hunts for a serial killer who's obsessed with her.

Right from the beginning this book had my pulse racing as Heath and Anya tried to find a crazed killer. I wouldn't describe this book as a thriller, but at times I thought my heart would beat right out of my chest wh

Oh, their timing sucked, that was for sure. But he’d take this night. Before everything went to sh*t again, he’d take this night."


I loved and I mean I LOVED Zanetti's Sin Brothers series. So when I saw there's a spin off series with the Blood Brothers, I was sold. I was immediately hooked on the story with Deadly Silence. I was intrigued by the three men that forged a bond that was beyond blood and genetics. They have a brotherhood that's all theirs. On the run from Sheriff Cobb and h

3.75 Lethal Stars!

Rebecca Zanetti's Blood Brothers series continues with Heath’s story. Blood Brothers is a spinoff series of RZ’s Sin Brothers series (a favorite of mine!). You really don't have to read the Sin Brothers series to enjoy this series, but, I highly recommend reading Deadly Silence, book one in this series before reading Lethal Lies.

The brothers are private investigators and possess enhanced skills that give them the upper hand when needed. I completely love the camarader

And Rebecca Zanetti Slays Again!

Rebecca Zanetti is a master of weaving thrilling stories full of suspense, romance and mystery. When you begin her books, be prepared to get caught up in a sexy romantic suspense with an incredibly developed storyline. She is an auto-buy for me because her books have everything I love, family, romance, suspense, mystery, and most importantly, a happy ending. My favorite thing in her stories is the unshakable bond of family loyalty. It is really the glue that makes

4.5 "Disguised Love?" Stars!

Lovers of romantic suspense titles will not want to miss the Blood Brothers series. Additionally, for those of you who enjoy PNR or UF titles, there is also a minor overlay of supernatural abilities that surrounds this series as the heroes are all part of a genetic engineering experiment meant to build super soldiers with supernatural senses. However, the suspense is only part of the equation as each story also features one swoon worthy, "blood" brother with alpha pro

If like myself you followed this authors Sin Brothers series then this off shoot will be a must read for you. It's fun to see the differences between these genetically modified guys but it's also intruiging just how alike they can be. Suspense is the name of the game here with more than a healthy dose of romance but the author has cunningly woven her story in such a way that she keeps you guessing . Readers who've followed this storyline know full well that there's a reason why Heath and his bro ...more

Fast-paced, action-packed mystery/suspense story that is sexy, romantic and lots of fun, and wow, did it get my heart pumping! This series is a spin off to the Sin Brothers books, and is shaping up to be just as intense as the originals, and I’m loving the ride!

This continues the overall story arc from Deadly Silence involving the hunt for a serial killer as well as the brothers' past coming for them.

Heath Jones is a PI working with his adopted brothers. They have been working this serial killer case along with the FBI and Heath has become nearly obsessed with it and each loss. Heath is usually the calmer and in control brother. He's always been a savior and protector. But it seems they are one step behind this killer.

Anya Best is the target.

I give Lethal Lies by Rebecca Zanetti 4.5 out of 5 stars gladly rounded up to 5 stars. I really enjoyed this book and I will definitely be looking for more from Rebecca Zanetti.

I read this book without reading book one of the series. It can easily be read as a stand alone novel, but I did notice a few places where it would have been nice to have read the first book, but it wasn't necessary.

Heath is a genetically enhanced man who is a member of the Blood Brothers (also genetically enhanced). He

In Lethal Lies, the second book in Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series, the action, suspense and romance continue!

This book focuses on Heath Jones (one of the three Blood Brothers) and Criminal Psychologist Anya Best (the sister of FBI agent Loretta from book one). In book one, Loretta had set herself up as bait for the Copper Killer and had been kidnapped. In book 2, Anna is working with the FBI trying to help find the Copper Killer. Innocent women are being killed, including her sister. S

I usually love Zanetti's romantic suspense books but this installment left me somewhat disappointed. It was slower paced, with is rare for this author. Some the policy/events for law enforcement was blatantly incorrect. (I try not to be petty, but it just didn't seem well researched or realistic; it was a distraction.) I never really bought into the chemistry between Heath and Anya either; it felt forced. I continue to adore the brothers and their complicated pasts.

Despite my lukewarm feelings,

Lethal Lies is the second book in the Blood Brothers trilogy from Rebecca Zanetti. At heart this book is exactly the type of romance I love to read and the author built the suspense up perfectly to an explosive climax that had a few surprises to keep me on the edge of my seat.

There are just not enough fabulous words to describe this book and all the others by Zanetti other than buy, buy, buy! You'll want to make sure that you read the series before reading this and you won't regret it. Genetically enhanced soldiers, mystery, loyalty, action, and love. It's a page turner and you'll be sad when it ends.

I can't believe it because I usually adore RZ's books, but I DNF'd this. The heroine was dumb as rocks and the situations and the reactions and responses of the hero were just so unbelievable I just didn't want to go on.

3 Reasons why I did not like Lethal Lies
1. Anya - I never go into a book to hate it. I read Zanetti before and really enjoyed her other series. I could not stand Anya. I downright hated her. I just could not stand her character. There is a serial killer on the loose and apparently killing red heads and somehow it's connected to Anya and he is doing it because of her.
When Anya meets Heath for the first time, she is being shot at. So after almost getting killed because of him. What does she do?

Oh my god. I devoured this book, couldn't read it fast enough!!! I haven't read the first book of the series, and understood the context of the brothers. Sure, some details may be missing, but it didn't falter my interest. Now I can't wait to read the first and the third book!

I love have there is always lots going on in Rebecca Zanetti books but the chemistry between the hero/heroine is always there at the forefront.

The story takes off where the last one finished - I don't want to go into it to much as it will spoil it for you.

Loved it & would recommend reading the first one first.

The main plot of this story was intriguing with an exciting and surprising ending but I'm tired of the series bad guys. A lot of the book was two alpha males posturing and everyone getting ready for the big event but no real action. In front of news cameras, psychologist Anya antagonizes the serial killer who killed her sister and also mentions PI Heath.
