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!
That’s all for now! This was a really quick review, but let me know in the Comments if you’ve read this books! What did you Think of it? Is this on you’re TBR?
