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…

I received a copy of Deadly Silence from Netgalley for Review Purposes. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

I wanted to like this book, but it didn’t work for me. I think I expected more of a thriller romance with ONE interesting plot and less of a “too many things going on at the same time with sex to prevent freak outs” kind of story. There were three crimes/mysteries happening at once and although that alone wouldn’t have been a problem, I felt like all three suffered from the lack of focus specially when you throw in the romance.

The romance was weird! I don’t know how to explain it, but I didn’t find the love they talked about. In theory they are a good combination but there was something off, maybe it was because I found the heroine to be inconsistent. I enjoyed the beginning of this book, but quickly lost interested in the story around the 20% mark. So while it wasn’t a bad book, it wasn’t really for me. There was a big focus on the Romance, and I don’t like too much romance in books, so that might be why I didn’t like this book that much!

From what I’ve seen, the next book is more of the same so I don’t think I’ll bother. If you don’t mind a lot of romance in books than It might be worth checking out, it just wasn’t for me!

  1. This doesn’t sound like it”s for me. I hate when the plot doesn’t feel like it’s going the right direction or like it’s all over the place.

    • Same! With this book there was just way too much going on, it was hard to follow at times! I am very picky about the books I read, and I very quickly lose interest in them if there’s too much going on or the story is all over place or at all confusing!

      Thanks for stopping by!
      Happy Reading!

      • I know what you mean. I have so many other books that I could be reading that it always feels like a shame to waste my time with something that isn’t captivating. If something isn’t keeping my interest I like to move along as well. Or at least start reading something else and pick it up in between. I like to read a couple books at once lately. One that moves slow but is good, one that is fast paced and one from a different genre. The slow book tends to take a while while I focus on the other two.
