You can't escape the past . . .
Noni is desperate. Her infant niece has been kidnapped, and the only person who can save her is a private detective with too many secrets to count--and more enemies than he can name. A man who walked away from Noni without any warning a year ago, a man who broke her heart. But with Talia's life on the line, Noni needs his help now more than ever--and this time, she won't take no for an answer . . .
The moment Denver Jones sees Noni, the memories come rushing back. The fire in her eyes. The determination in her voice. The danger of having her in his life. Denver had to push her away once, but now with vicious criminals threatening Noni and her niece, he'll do whatever it takes to protect them. But enemies from his past are circling, and they'll use anything--and anyone--to get to Denver.
With twists and turns that will blow you away, TWISTED TRUTHS is sexy, action-packed suspense at its very best from New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti.
First the Sins Brothers and now the Blood Brothers… I’m down to my last brother and book of the series. Reader gal having a bittersweet moment… But a moment is all I get because I’m still feeling a bit of a blissful reaction to the final scene. Family- of the brooding, big, and strong protector variety get me every time. Twisted Truths wrapped things up splendidly.
Twisted Truths is the third and final book in the Blood Brothers series. It does not make for a good standalone or out of order. This whole series actually works best following the earlier Sins Brothers for which this group is a spin off.
Denver is the final Blood Brother to get his story, but its also a culmination of all their stories- Ryker, Heath and all the Gray brothers before them. Denver is hot on the trail of Dr. Madison and sadistic, vengeful former Sheriff Cobb when he is sidetracked by a woman from his past. He left Noni in an effort to protect her from the fallout in his life yet here she is naively putting herself in the crosshairs of Madison and Cobb when she puts a picture of them up all over the internet in a desperate effort to find him. Denver spends the book racing ahead of the danger of his and Noni’s enemies and sorting out his past while knowing that his future is a showdown with Madison.
Noni, on the other hand, had no idea what drove Denver away and she’d rather be mad then hurt though, she is that- very much. She goes with her guts that to get a baby girl back safely before a gang does bad things, she must call on Denver- ruthless, cold Denver- to help her get her goddaughter back.
This book was a blend of emotions and action and oh yes, the passion. Its on the go, but it doesn’t stint on the character and couple development. The author ties up all the strings in this one, but its got a few twists to keep the reader engaged to see how its all going to go down.
I love the story, the series, and even the formula, but I do have to say that one has to like the formula to appreciate the series when it comes to the romance. Gutsy, stubborn, and hurting heroine vs. tough, vulnerable, over-protective alpha male. See? what’s not to like?
And I did like them, though, Noni’s ‘I have to push your buttons because they are there’ behavior when she was mad made me get a little restive. She got past it and then I was all in. Denver and Noni were a great pair and I loved seeing them help each other heal and bring out the best in each other. And that doll of a baby sure had me swooning when she was in Denver’s arms. These lonely guys sure do make for good family material.
All in all, I was engaged and struggled to put the book down for real life intrusions. It was a strong story alone, but also a fantastic finish for the series. Those who love a blend of passionate romance and heart-stopping action should give the Sins and Blood Brothers a try.
I got this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
