4 Great start to a new series stars!!
First off I really love this cover. It’s part sexy and part intriguing… Second I did not know going into this book that it was a spin off series for Rebecca Zanetti. Having said that after reading Deadly Silence I really want to read the first series of hers. This book had more suspense and action than most of the romantic suspense books I have read lately. I really enjoyed that it was a constant motion for these character and how they evolve throughout the book.
Let’s start with Zara (really cool name)… she has been seeing Ryker for months now. By seeing I mean they don’t have a relationship. He calls and she cooks him dinner and then they get some smexy times. Zara is a paralegal working for a prestigious firm. She met Ryker by work association he’s a PI. Zara has recently gotten into a rotten situation trying to help a friend out. However her firm is representing the man that her friend is divorcing so it’s a big no no for Zara to help her. Ryker decides to stick his nose in Zara’s business and it leads to them becoming a little more than friends with benefits. I really liked Zara’s character and how she stood up for herself most of the time. Especially in the action sequences. She has a really big heart and it shows throughout this book, especially when she takes on a motherly affection for a certain boy.
Ryker is definitely a complex character. While he obviously has the alpha man down and must protect everyone. He seems to show his vulnerable heart throughout the book. I loved the bond between him and his brothers. This book is set apart by the fact that Ryker seems to have some supernatural abilities. While he seems to try to keep Zara at arms length some situation call for a more up close relationship. He seems to balk at any intimate talk but it’s okay for her to talk about herself.
I really enjoyed that the author put in towards the beginning that Ryker and Zara had a relationship beyond the first interaction you see. This book didn’t have the insta love that happens in a ton of books. I also loved the fact that there was a lot of action in this book and it wasn’t all suspense.
Thank you to Rebecca Zanetti and Forever Romance for this copy in lieu of my honest review.
