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 broth
At the end of the last story, FBI Special Agent Loretta Jackson was missing and feared to be the latest victim of the Copper Killer. She’d put herself at risk to protect her sister, Anya Best, a red-headed profiler and college professor. When she learns about her sister’s fate, Anya reaches out to Heath Jones to help her find the killer. He and his brothers are also on the run from Isobel Madison and Elton Cobb and helping Anya raises their profile more than they’d like.

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 when I

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 Co

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 cam

Lethal Lies is book 2 of Zanetti’s Blood Brothers Series, a spin-off of the popular Sin Brothers series.  Both series feature men who are genetically altered to produce super-soldiers, but who have managed to escape the control of mad scientist Dr. Isobel Madison (who will stop at nothing to get them back in her lab) and the sadistic

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

Lethal Lies is the second book in the Blood Brothers series and we get a chance to continue on with our boys and their upcoming adventure and this book was a whopper. Rebecca Zanetti knows how to write her suspense and this book kept me on edge at times. Especially in scenes that we see from the perspective of the villain. And I really admire that in an author, is to see the evil workings and plans up ahead and see how our heroe

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!

If you ever watched the movie, The Fast and Furious, you know that those cars are stripped down to the bare essentials and then loaded up with nitro to give the vehicle an extra boost.

The second book in the Blood Brothers series by Rebecca Zanetti. Anya Best is the sister of FBI SA Loretta Jackson, who goes missing in the previous book. She hooks up with Private Investigator, Heath Jones, in hopes of finding her sister before the serial killer kills her.

This series is related to another series by Ms. Zanetti, Sin Brothers. More hots guys that were genetically modified and running from the baddies that created them. Love both series.

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.

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,

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.

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!
