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.

LETHAL LIES EXCERPT

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 fiancĂ© 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 fiancĂ©e 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.

My Review:  Rebecca Zanetti's Blood Brothers series continues with Lethal Lies, which is Heath's story.  The Blood Brothers series is a spin off from Zanetti's Sin Brothers series, and while you don't have to read the Sin Brothers series to enjoy the Blood Brothers series, I do recommend reading Deadly Silence, the first book in the Blood Brothers series before reading Lethal Lies.  

Health's love interest in the novel is Anya Best, a criminal psychologist, whose sister also happens to have been murdered by the Copper Killer, a serial killer that Heath Jones, along with his brothers Ryker and Denver, have also been tracking and trying to catch.  The brothers are private investigators and possess many enhanced skills that enable them to be the best at what they do.  The history behind how they acquired these skills and the circumstances that brought them together, are part of a past that has forced them to live under the radar, because there are some really bad people who are out to get them.  Though Anya and Heath's relationship begins based on false pretenses, the chemistry between them is undeniable and only gets stronger as the book progresses.  Heath finds himself having to make some very difficulty choices that could also affect not only Anya and him, but also could potentially affect his brothers, while Anya has to determine what she wants and is willing to give up to be with Heath.  

Lethal Lies is filled with nonstop action, suspense, danger, romance, and even has a bit of a science fiction feel to it, with genetically engineered soliders and the crazed scientist who has spent her life experimenting on them.  I was completely captivated from beginning to end and cannot wait to get my hands on Denver's story, which is coming up next in Twisted Truths.  Definitely add this to your to be read list.
