DESCRIPTION

One year ago, Denver Jones blew up his life and left everything behind. To stay alive, he had no other choice. But now, when video footage of the woman he could never forget goes viral, begging for his help, he has no choice but to go to her. Her niece has been kidnapped and Denver and his blood brothers are the only people she can trust.

But Denver isn’t the only one watching that video. The deadly forces from his past see it too-and they’ll use anything–and anyone–they can to lure Denver out of hiding to exact their revenge.

EXCERPT

Slowly, numbly, she shrugged.  “I knew you were dangerous and relentless in pursuing somebody,” she whispered.  But a killer?   Her search for him had held a romantic element, and she knew it.  This guy was all edge—no romance.  “Am I in danger?”  Her voice quivered, but she had to know.

“Yes.”  He didn’t move.  Didn’t even seem to breathe.

She blinked.  Rapidly.  “From you?”

His eyes darkened.  “No.  The only thing I’m capable of breaking is your heart.”

Cold swam through her.  The arrogance.  “You think you broke my heart?”

His lip twisted.  “I know I did.”  His tone was low with what seemed like self-hatred.  Dark and raw.  “I’m sorry.”

Those words.  She’d needed those words and hadn’t realized how badly.  “Thank you,” she said, going on instinct.  “Then how am I in danger?”

“I’m in danger, and anybody close to me is free game for an enemy who will keep coming until I’m dead.  Until everything I care about, everything I dream about, is taken away and I want death.”  He looked back down at the computer, intensity pouring from him.

Whoa. Okay.  Denver didn’t have one bit of hysteria in him.  His words scared her, but curiosity still rose up.  “Who?”

“Irrelevant.  As soon as we get Talia back, you have to forget me.  Now.  Back to Richie.”

She could live forever, and she’d never forget him.  Not for one second had she been able to pretend he didn’t exist.  But he was right.  They had to find Talia, but he still needed to explain more.  She had a right to know everything.  “I have files on everything.”  She threw her pack at Denver, and he easily caught it before it smashed him in the face.

He didn’t so much as frown.  “Thank you.”

She swallowed.  They were in the same room.  After a year of hurting for him, he was right there in solid form.  More than solid.  She hadn’t imagined his hard body or intense charisma.  He owned every room he walked into with no effort.  She’d never met anybody like him, and here he was.  Her body tingled, her heart ached, and her mind spun.  Yeah.  Denver was definitely there.  “What now?” she asked, her eyes gritty and her throat scratchy.

“I’ll do some research.”  Slowly, numbly, she shrugged.  “I knew you were dangerous and relentless in pursuing somebody,” she whispered.  But a killer?   Her search for him had held a romantic element, and she knew it.  This guy was all edge—no romance.  “Am I in danger?”  Her voice quivered, but she had to know.

REBECCA’S TOP 5 FAVORITE MOMENTS OF THE SERIES

2. In Lethal Lies, when Anya decides she’s engaged to Heath.

KIM’S REVIEW

I first fell in love with Rebecca Zanetti’s books when I read the Sin Brothers series, and the Blood Brothers spinoff series has been another wonderful set of stories!  Ryker and Heath have had their turn in the spotlight, and now Denver gets his chance.

Denver met Noni when he was on a case in Alaska. Despite his best intentions, he fell in love with her but he knew that his past would eventually catch up to him so he did what he thought was best: he walked away without saying goodbye in an attempt to keep her safe. Unfortunately he only ended up breaking both their hearts in their process, and his brothers worried about him when he fell into the bottle in an attempt to drown the heartache. Now he has to pull himself together though because Noni has just put them both in immediate danger by posting pictures of him all over the Internet in an attempt to track him down.  She may still be harboring some serious anger toward him, but she has a need for his help that takes precedence at the moment.

Noni has not gotten over the way Denver walked out on her, but when her foster sister Sharon’s baby is kidnapped by her gang-banger-poor-excuse for a father after Sharon ODs, Noni knows her only hope of finding baby Talia alive is with Denver’s assistance. She saw firsthand how he was able to accomplish feats others couldn’t, but despite their time together she truly knows very little about him – as he intended. She is completely unprepared when he shows up in the middle of the night at the crappy motel she is staying in, but their rocky reunion has to take a backseat to flying bullets when the gang tracks her down as well.  The action is non-stop from that point forward, but the hurt simmering under the surface won’t wait to be addressed.  Noni pushes him to the breaking point knowing that she hasn’t seen his true depth of emotion, but the intensity she sees in him when he is at the brink of breaking both frightens and excites her.  When she finally convinces him to tell her the truth of his childhood and his reality, she isn’t sure how to process it all. She can’t deny that the story rings with truth as he tells it, but it is all a bit much to take in- and oh wait, more bullets are flying!

The tension is high between trying to track down Talia before she disappears forever, the gang members hunting them down, and Madison and Cobb tightening the net as they search for Denver, his brothers and the Gray brothers. Family ties mean everything, and trying to find a way to keep all of Denver’s family and Noni’s family safe may mean the ultimate sacrifice before all is said and done because Madison is unnaturally fixated on bringing Denver back into the fold. As much as his heart yearns to keep Noni for his own and to be there for her and Talia when they get her back, he is hesitant to make promises he cannot keep so he has no choice but to enjoy the moments they do have now.  He and Noni sizzle on the pages as they both melt your heart and break it a little too.

At the same time, the brothers are preparing for a final assault on Madison to hopefully end their time on the run and find a way to enjoy a somewhat normal future. Heath, Ryker and Denver have some touching moments as do as Denver and Jory as they try to figure out if they are in fact blood relations.  I was glad to see that the final showdown was not a one-and-done moment so to speak because that would have been too easy after all they went through. Instead the conclusion to their lifelong battle was well written and was fitting for the journey taken to get there. I absolutely do not want to say goodbye to this series, but Twisted Truths was an amazing end to the series and I can only hope we may see the Jones and Gray brothers again in the future in some way!
