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 heroes/heroines conquer in the end.
Lethal Lies begins with our heroine, Anya, who is being stalked and when she reconnects with her sister who works for the FBI, her sister wants to help her out find out who is hunting her and our villain here is on a murder spree with multiple women who look like Anya and he is becoming more bold. After Anya learns that her sister is taken by him and murdered, she refuses to stand on the sidelines any more, and dares him on television and boldly declares Heath Jones as her fiancee. Even though there is a connection between Heath and Anya, at first their relationship begins with just a fake engagement. But as Anya and Heath work together to draw the villain into a trap…..their villain turns into something much closer to home than they realize
Lethal Lies was a kickass of a read and boy this book definitely kept me on edge. Now, at least for me personally, it didn’t feel quite as much of a page turner as the first book was, but it was such a solid story and I really fell for Heath and Anya. And of course, we get the whole group with our brothers. And we such more depths to them even more in this book and I really liked seeing how much they support each other through everything. I love how close knit these men are to each other. These brotherly bonds is so touching at times and seriously the “picking out the rings” moment just had me laughing and in tears at the same time. Zanetti certainly knows how to work my emotions so well.
This is a story and a trilogy you NEED to read in order, just to get everything that is building up especially with the evil plans of our villains. And boy the ending when we find out who the stalker is, he is one crazy man and we haven’t seen the last of him. This story just pulls you into this intense filled world. The romance that builds between Heath and Anya is fierce and passionate as their is a high level of sexual tension, but such sweet poignant moments.
Overall I found Lethal Lies to be a stunning addition to this trilogy and its portrayal was so vivid and such stimulating plot that will leave you breathless and eager for the finale.
