Great Addition to a Great Series
Hero's Haven - Zanetti, Rebecca

After years of struggling, Haven Daly has finally accepted that she’s nuttier than a fruitcake. Why else would she see visions of a beautiful but tormented male every night . . . and actually believe she can talk to him, even feel his touch?  But thanks to those dream journeys, she can paint images nobody else on earth can duplicate. In each brush stroke, she captures the blatant masculinity and raw desire in his eyes that promise he’s coming for her…and soon. Quade Kayrs has already suffered a lifetime of pain and torture. Completely isolated, he kept his sanity  thanks to one beautiful female, a vision with kind emerald eyes. In the end, her soft voice led him out of hell. Now, naked and alone, he’s in a strange world that bears little resemblance to the one he left behind. All he knows is Haven. All he wants is Haven. His final mission? To protect her from the evil hunting them both—whether she likes it or not.

This was another great story by a great author. I really enjoyed following Haven an Quade as they wade through the danger they’ve fallen into (as well as Haven’s reality check). The story was very fast paced, making it hard to put down. I liked seeing characters from previous stories. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I highly recommend. 

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

ARC REVIEW Hero's Haven by Rebecca Zanetti

Hero's Haven (Dark Protectors #11)Dark Protectors #11, The story of the seven continue on, it is best if you start at the beginning or at least Vampire's Faith (#8) which is the start of this story arc. When we last saw Quade his world was on the brink of collapse, Haven a special woman who has the ability to travel to other worlds in her dreams has seen Quade, talked to him. Haven doesn't always have control of where she goes but she was lucky enough to get to Quade before his world collapsed and somehow brought him back with her. Quade is thrust in to modern times and unlike his brother who had the help of Siri to adjust Quade is figuring this out on his own with Haven's help, his favorite thing is toothpaste.

On the run from human police and the Kurjian are the least of their problems when Haven's past finds her and tries it's best to take her way from Quade with the help a creepy shifter. But that's just the beginning. The Kurjian and the Cyst are still hot on the Seven's tail and the big bad is closer than ever to breaking free and it's up to Haven to stop it from happening.

The romance between Quade and Haven starts really nice, they have great chemistry but once it gets to the whole have to mate to protect her I lose interest, normally I love oblivious guys but Quade is just being too stubborn for his own good and it gets tiresome. The ending was brilliant though, I really liked how this one ended.

Overall, out of this new story arc this is definitely one of my favorites. It was action-packed and exciting from cover to cover. And Finally Grace and Adare's book is going to be next, well after the novella.

ARC REVIEW Fallen by Rebecca Zanetti

Fallen (Deep Ops, #2)Deep Ops #2, I enjoyed it, I prefer RAZ romantic suspense. I was looking forward to the straight laced Feb hooking up with the laid back hacker, especially after Taken the in between novella that gives background on Raider it's not a necessary read but it is a good, really good, read. Each book of the series have so far been stand alones. This one just fell shy of expectations it was good it was exciting and Roscoe is still as crazy as ever but it wasn't what I was expecting. I'm not crazy about organized crime, it's not something I usually go out of my way to read but it was still a good 3.5 read.

Raider Tanaka worked the organized crime division in the FBI with his partner who was undercover until his partner is killed and Raider crosses the line with the boss's boss's wife and he finds himself on babysitting duty to Brigid Banaghan, a hacker who was arrested and the government decided to use her talents for good within the HDD specifically for Angus Force and his low budget team of misfits. Angus seems to have a reason for recruiting everyone he did and the way it's playing out everyone is going to get a chance to right their wrong or get their revenge. In Raider's case he's finally going to get the change and going after the guy who killed his partner. Their way into the Irish Boston mob is Brigid's dad. Raider goes in undercover as Brigid's fiance and an up and coming crime lord who is seeking out help with the Boston mob. As per usual nothing ever goes as planned and by the end of the day just about everyone is battered bruised and have a few extra GSW on their medical record.

Brigid and Raider together were good, there was a lot of lying going on. They still fell in bed together and fell in love, even when Brigid thought Raider was lying to her she knew she could still trust him. RAZ is great when it comes to the suspense part of Romantic Suspense she's spot on with the action and she's so easy to read unless you pace yourself you can just zoom right through her books. I look forward to Wolfe's book next.

Great Story and Characters
Fallen - Rebecca Zanetti

Brigid sat across from Raider Tanaka - who was a clean cut, upstanding, and unyielding  Even his perfect large tailored suit made him appear like a guy who daily helped old ladies across the street. Brigid  whispered “ You Look like a Fed.” Raider said “ I am a Fed . then she said she didn’t think they blended in. Raider said he thought that was the point Irish- the  nickname he gave her the first day they met. She told Raider she didn’t get why Angus sent them there just to have lunch. Raider said the boss always has a plan. Brigid enjoyed temporarily working for the ragtag Homeland Defense unit run by Angus Force,  but her job was hacking computer systems or writing code. Raider asked if she was finished with her food when she said yes he pulled her plate to himself Raider did not seem like the kind of guy to share someone else’s food. She figured him to be a dorky germaphobe, albeit a good looking one. He said “ When you grow up on the streets or in foster care you learned to take food where you can get it.” When she asked if he grew up in foster care he said yes. She wasn’t the one tough to figure out. Well that explained why he was such a control freak. Growing up in the system probably did that to a guy. She had to do something about her dangerous attraction to him. One of the other men- a bodyguard told Raider to leave while the man reached for his gun raider quickly bashed his head on the table and the man fell to the floor. Raiders easy and brutal violence shocked Brigid. Than a second man ran toward him drawing his gun out. Three punches and a quick twist and raider stood with the gun pointed at the back table. Raider tossed a business card on the table and said” Have your boss call me if he wants to get serious .” Than Raider backed toward briged and said “Door Now.” Raider told briged he had a feeling their mission went according to plan. As they drove away from the restaurant. After returning to D C they went to headquarters. Than a German Shepard named Roscoe came out of the office . Brigid relaxed when she saw Roscoe. Animals and computers code she knew. It was people who threw her. Roscoes mouth was red, Angus asked if it was Jack Daniels as the dog had a well known drinking problem and the dog spit out a gold plated lipstick . The dog had a thing for alcohol. Makeup, and highheels. Angus had previously been an FBI profiler. Now he headed up this ragtag division of HDD and almost to be able to read people’s minds. Did he have one clue who she was supposed to be? Angus said he had a new case. Than went and said “ Though the Irish mob no longer exists on Boston . there are criminal past associates of the mob that risen in the ranks and became threats Angus told Raider someone will be calling that  they are still creating to Raider. Angus said” Instead of working within as usual, or rather former hierarchy of the mob, these guys are outsourcing work to skilled computer criminals for everything.from laundering money to shipping schedules.’ Angus added “We have a lead on a group using a site on the dark web , they’re running drugs and I’m telling you. I think there’s more.” “ In fact I think I found what.” The dark web is nearly impossible to hack. “ I can’t find a site without knowing where it is.” Brigid said. The way to bringing down someone on the dark web is-” “Getting them to meet you in person.” Raider said. And added “Guess that’s my part of the op.” Angus said partially, there is something else.Warning trickled through Brigid, why she didn’t know. But her instincts rose instantly and she said “What?” Angus said he thought her father Sean was one of the key players. Brigid said “ You’re crazy. He’s a farmer. Always has been.” Angus told her he had been involved with the irish mob , more specifically the Coonan family, for years. Formative ones. Than he supposedly got out. But now we think he is back in and part of what is happening now.” Bridget told him he was wrong about her father. Bridget said her father would never talk to a Fed if he was dying. Angus said “ You’re going home to introduce your father to the man you are going to marry.” Raider than said Look like they were engaged. Now that she was his, he could finally figure her out. Force told Brigid he needed her to reach out to Wolfe’s new friend Dana. The journalist supposedly had begun working on a story about the Irish mob and credit card fraud. They needed her sources. They've met the woman the week before in Kentucky on another assignment and now she was Wolfe’s friend. Clarence Wolfe was the muscle of the unit and dollars to donuts he was insane. Or else he had a weird sense of humor. Raider said he won’t like you messing with her life. Angus said “He’s a good soldier and he’ll understand the mission. Well probably.” Than Angus said after she called Dana he needed one more thing from her today. There was a possible sighting of Henry Wayne Lassiter in malibu the other day, would she mind going into your computer room and checking it out? Brigid said  sure. The woman’s green eyes had captivated Raider from the first second, followed closely by the slight Irish brogue with a hint of Boston in it. The brogue was strong but the eyes were vulnerable. She tried to hide but Raider was the master of figuring people out. She was all wrong for him but the flashes of her she let slip out drew him. If she needed protection he could provide that. When Raider asked why now Angus answered he had a gut feeling their trafficking kids. Raider did not let anyone know Brigid kept him up nights. Angus said brigid craves stability. Her world was turned on its head when her mother died, and she was left with an absentee father who she’s estranged from . She wouldn’t be the first person to fall for the illusion of strength in a jackass. Angus said” If I let you continue this op , her safety is on you.” The pretty redhead ‘s safety had been on him the second he became her handler. Heat flashed through raider’s chest with the need to protect and shield her. A sense he’d only felt for his foster family before now.

Excellent book and I loved it. I loved the thrills, danger, suspense, and action. Half the time I was on the edge of my seat. I didn’t want to put this down. I loved raider and Brigid together and how they interacted. I loved the plot and pace of this book. I loved the ragtag Homeland defense team and how they were there for each other. I absolutely adored Rascoe and his issues. I can’t think of anything I could criticize in this book it was that good. I loved the characters and the twists and turns of this book and I highly recommend it.

5 Star Fallen
Fallen - Rebecca Zanetti

 

Brigid Banaghan got caught hacking and now she is forced to work with a secret Deep Ops unit. Raider knows there is more to his new assignment than he’s been told. When Brigid’s estranged father is named in an investigation into Boston’s organized crime, Raider’s mind switches onto high alert. Brigid needs Raider’s help to clear her father’s name but unless he can release his inner bad boy, pretending to be engaged won’t fly.

 

This ‘Deep Ops’ story is one hair raising exciting event after another and readers won’t be able to put it down once they get started. The characters are strong, vivid and easily grab the readers’ attentions and the chemistry between Raider and Brigid sizzles with extreme heat although they do seem like an unlikely couple but that just ensures that this growing relationship never has dull moment as the emotions flow and passions ignite.

 

The plot is fast paced with great timing that keeps the excitement coming and the suspense building throughout keeping readers on edge even as stunning twists ensures that they never know exactly what might happen. The ‘Deep Ops’ team is a great team that is strong with a compelling presence that readers wanting to be part of their team especially because this team is a bit unorthodox which makes things real and heroic. This story is energetic, spicy and thrilling with a bit of humor that really makes the story stand out.
