Broken by Rebecca Zanetti

New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti delivers a pulse-pounding new read filled with her trademark edge of your seat action in the latest book in her Deep Ops series…

Former Navy SEAL Clarence Wolfe’s unit was taken out with a land mine. Injured and devastated, he hasn’t been quite right since. Worse, the tragedy was no accident. All Wolfe wants now is to take down the man responsible. In the meantime, he’s good with being the muscle for the Deep Ops team—and leading a steamy no-strings-attached personal life. Until one intriguing woman changes everything...

Determined: Reporter Dana Mulberry is on a mission to avenge the death of a fellow journalist. She’s finally hot on a trail—right to a sex club—where she runs into… Wolfe? It seems both their leads have led to the same spot. To keep from blowing their covers, they’ll have to at least pretend to have a little fun. Trouble is, they genuinely like each other. And that’s way too risky for Wolfe, especially when, to his surprise, Dana agrees...

Complicated: Drawn to each other in ways they can’t understand, Wolfe and Dana keep it professional—until they’re shot at one night. And when their adventures land them both at the heart of corruption in D.C.—and at odds in their missions—they’ll have to dig deeper than ever to succeed in their quests—and with each other...

This is the third book in the series, and I would recommend that you read them in order, as there are underlying plots, issues, and character details which you would enjoy all the more. The Deep Ops team is made up of a very particular (some may say peculiar) group of individuals and a crazy, alcoholic dog with a heels fetish, and a kitten! But a more loyal, intensely focussed on righting wrongs group of people you could not meet. And when they fall in love, it is just as fabulous, and often unexpected – these guys live on the edge and Wolfe, in particular, never really thought about long term.

Whilst Dana may be a journalist, she has worked with Clarence Wolfe in an investigative role before – but she had never seen him in leather pants before. Such a great first scene in this book! As their cases may interlink, and with Dana is clearly in danger, Deep Ops engages her to help out and to keep her safe. Now all her fantasies of spending time with Wolfe come true, but not quite how she hoped.

As the two of them get to know each other better, we start to understand why Wolfe holds himself apart. I love how we find this out, through his non-conversations with Nari; his private wall on Rock being found by Dana; and their cases actually being one and the same. Suddenly, Wolfe has to work out why maybe he wants a future after all – I loved this realisation for him and really, for the whole team.

Very exciting, sexy, and full of fabulous humour as well as heart-wrenching moments – this series is so very, very readable. DO be warned that once you start, it is very difficult to stop reading. You know how sometimes a book seems to end before it began, because the words just flow so easily, that you don't notice the pages turning? That!

Thank you, Rebecca Zanetti, for a totally fabulous installment!

M/F Military Romance, Mystery

Dana is on a mission. Nobody can tell her that her good friend’s death isn’t a case of murder and Dana is hellbent on proving it. She will stop at nothing to figure out what happened to her friend and when she finds herself in a tight spot, she’ll have to rely on Wolfe to keep her safe.

Wolfe is out for blood. He was betrayed and now knows that only he can bring his team justice. He keeps people at arm’s length so that if he comes across those who betrayed him, he won’t be leaving anyone behind.

When Wolfe and Dana realize that their cases are twisted together, it will take them both to figure out the mystery. It’s a fast-paced, well-developed novel that is entertaining, sexy, and keeps you guessing.

I really enjoyed this story and have enjoyed the series as a whole. I can’t wait to read more Zanetti books.

The third book in the Deep Ops series belongs to former special ops soldier Wolfe and journalist Dana. The book is at its best when it focuses on the characters and relationships and I feel like the Deep Ops team is becoming more engaging with each story.

I have to admit that my reaction to this book is mixed. I loved the second half, but it took me ages to get into the story. The story isn’t quite as coherent as the first two and I feel like the plot wanders a little. Some of the plot side trips are more successful than others. The sex club visits at the beginning confused me, but I quite enjoyed the family wedding. I feel like the romance element of this romantic suspense works better than the suspense elements of the story.

As always, Rebecca Zanetti’s writing is solid, and the characters are both entertaining and very loveable. I’m really enjoying the women in this series and I love that the happily ever afters aren’t entirely conventional.
