The second book in author Rebecca Zanetti’s Blood Brothers series, Lethal Lies is a complex and engaging romantic suspense read that completely sweeps you up into its world. And given that this story deals with some enhanced abilities, criminal psychology, and the hunt for a serial killer, I was all in right from the start. Of course, it helps that the book is also masterfully written and wholly entertaining.
I loved the themes of family and friendship in Lethal Lies because it added a lot of emotional depth to a complicated suspense plot. It also allowed the characters to act and react based on their feelings about the story events, and all of those actions and reactions felt intrinsic to the characters. Which made me love Anya and Heath and their romantic chemistry all the more.
Heath Jones, along with his brothers, Denver and Ryker, run Lost Bastard’s Investigative Services and it’s their latest case, the hunt for the Copper Killer, that has Heath teaming up with Anya Best, a criminal psychologist with a personal stake in catching the killer. Anya’s refusal to back down proved a good challenge for Heath and created a lot of great moments between them, which made reading about them in this story a blast.
Action-packed with plenty of romance, suspense, and mystery, Lethal Lies is a dynamite romantic suspense read that you won’t want to put down. It has a great cast of characters and is such a compelling story. Highly recommend reading it!

From LETHAL LIES by Rebecca Zanetti:
She swallowed and met his gaze. “All right. Let me get this straight. We’re going undercover to flush out a killer who’s obsessed with me, and you’re offering to play at being my man for real with no strings or future?” She hoisted the bag onto her shoulder. “That’s some ego. Are you that good in bed?”
“Yes.” And that was definite interest in her eyes.
She clicked her tongue. “I’ll keep your offer in mind.”
“You do that.” He maintained a low and calm voice. “While you’re considering, let’s look at the situation. You have publicly made me your fiancé in order to draw out a killer, which means I have to act as such. Any halfway intelligent law enforcement officer or private investigator would keep his redheaded fiancée very close after the stunt you just pulled. If you’re not with me, the killer is going to be very suspicious.”
She stilled, expressions crossing her face rapidly. “That’s a good point,” she said slowly.
Yeah. Sometimes reality helped him out a little. Plus, the killer had a hard-on for her, and he must already have plans to take her at some point. She’d just upped the timeline. “In addition, you need protection around the clock now, and I’m willing to provide that. So while you’re keeping my offer in mind, we’ll be staying in the same hotel room or same apartment.” He made sure he had her full attention. “While we plan the wedding, of course.”
Her challenging smile thrilled something inside him. “That’s fair.”
He stepped back to give her some space. “Good. Are you ready?”
“Yes.” She looked around the room. “I do have to ask. What if I didn’t agree with you about your keeping secrets from me? Considering people shoot at you, and I’m going to be at your side, it seems fair that you tell me who these people are.” She cocked her head to the side and focused back on him.
“I have more immediate concerns than being fair,” he said smoothly. “You brought me into this mess.”
A frown drew down her eyebrows. “Listen. I want an answer about you.”
“I just gave you one.” At her mulish expression, he searched for better words that wouldn’t end in an argument.
Suddenly, the door blew wide open and bounced loudly off the table. “Anya!” he yelled, jumping for her.
