A deadly secret can't stay buried forever . . .

Revenge. It's the only thing that will help Anya Best sleep at night. The serial killer who murdered her sister is on the loose, and Anya will stop at nothing to put him behind bars—even use herself as bait to lure him out of hiding. But she can't do this alone.

Private investigator Heath Jones's job is to bring bastards to justice. This time it's personal. He knew the Copper Killer's latest victim so when her sister asks for his help, he's all in. But when Anya uses the media to taunt the killer, she exposes Heath's identity, putting them both in jeopardy. Now, secrets buried long ago are coming to light and the forces determined to destroy him are watching Heath's every move, waiting to exact their own revenge. And they'll use anything and anyone to get to Heath.


I love Rebecca Zanetti's writing so I was super excited to read Lethal Lies. Lethal Lies is the second book in the Blood Brothers series which is actually a spin off of the Sin Brothers series. Of course, each book in the series can be read as a stand alone but there are recurring characters so I would highly recommend reading them in order. I really enjoyed myself while reading Lethal Lies. 

So this is the story of Heath and Anya. Let's start with Anya. Anya is a professor. She thinks she has her life together but a serial killer is out hunting her. After her sister gets brutally murdered by the infamous Copper Killer Anya vows to put an end to it. Like all Rebecca Zanetti heroines, I ended up really liking Anya. She was a perfect mixture of feminine and vulnerable but she had a core of steel. She is determined to find the Copper Killer even if it means putting herself up as bait.

Then we have Heath. Heath and his brothers have enough problems on their own. But Heath has always had a soft spot for women and animals. He can't help but get involved in the Copper Killer case. Heath obviously likes his control over everything in life but Anya makes him lose it. I loved Heath. He was a great guy. He only wanted to protect Anya and his brothers. 

Anya lies to the press stating that Heath and she are engaged to bait the Copper Killer exposing the Lost Bastards in the process. Heath and his brothers have multiple enemies on their trail but he is determined to bring all the victims of the Copper Killer justice. I loved Anya and Heath together. They made for a great pair who understood each other. They were both a bit stubborn in their own way but they worked so well.

I loved the way Rebecca Zanetti weaves her stories. They are chock full of action and romance and bonds of friendship and brotherhood. I enjoyed the main romance but I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Zara and Ryker and Denver too. I can't wait for Denver's book which is next for it all to culminate. The villains definitely have it coming for them. Lethal Lies was a great read.

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’reconsidering, 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 saidsmoothly. “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.
