Broken (Deep Ops #3)
Dangerous:  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 . . .

Wolfe was sexy, protective and a bit nuts, but oh so yummy. Dana was smart, stubborn, and brave. They were very cute together. I loved the build up to their relationship. Both Dana and Wolfe's backstories were good, detailed and made me feel like I really got to know them. I just loved them both so much and thought they made a great couple. The plot was great. The bad guy super evil. There was action, and plenty of romance. Wolfe's mission was hella good. I was fighting myself not to skip ahead just to see what happened next. Roscoe and Kat were funny and cute as ever. I loved the whole team and getting to see the close friendships within the group grow with each book. A few new people popped up in this book and I really liked them. Especially Dana's family. Force's ongoing story line got a bit more interesting. I can't wait to read his book. Overall this book was amazing, and the ending was so sweet. I loved every minute of this read and can't wait to read the next book. https://jessicasoverthetopbookobsessi...

    Broken by Rebecca Zanetti 3rd book in the Deep Ops series. Romantic suspense. Can be read as a stand-alone. But don’t miss the full series. Intense and captivating. Gripping and suspenseful. Sexy hot and emotionally satisfying. An amazing read with a mischievous dog that will cause laughter and gasps. This author writes great depth into the characters and storylines. The hero is strong and motivated with a soft heart for the heroine. Sigh.I can’t wait to read the next in the series.Excerpt:“It’s Broken by Rebecca Zanetti 3rd book in the Deep Ops series.

Sigh.I can’t wait to read the next in the series.Excerpt:“It’s not the nineteen hundreds.” One of his dark eyebrows rose. “Dana, I’m the muscle for the Deep Ops Unit because I’m good at it. It’s my job to protect and defend and diffuse. You’re nuts if you think I wouldn’t protect my woman with everything I have, especially my life.” His woman. She shook her head, even though her heart rate seemed to be perking up considerably, and not from irritation. “I think you’re behind the times here.” “Maybe,” he allowed. “But it’s a dangerous world, and you and I know that better than most. In this world, we give ourselves to the people we care about, and with that comes responsibilities. I’m all for independence, equal pay, and all of that, but a man’s job is to protect women and children, and that reality transcends any time.” Kat took that moment to jump from the back seat and land on Wolfe’s shoulder. “Animals and the elderly should be protected, too,” Wolfe added, opening his door and somehow jumping out without dislodging the kitten. “How does somebody argue with that?” she muttered as she exited the truck without waiting for him to open her door. He shrugged. “Why would you argue? However, if you someday end up with a guy who doesn’t agree with that sentiment, you’ve ended up with the wrong guy.” “Like you care who I end up with,” she said, stepping lightly over a puddle. “Well, I’d hate to have to kill him for not protecting you.” Wolfe patted the kitten, slowing his stride to match Dana’s. It was sometimes difficult to tell if Wolfe was joking or not. “Discussions like these throw me off kilter,” she said. Excerpt from Broken by Rebecca Zanetti I received a copy of this from NetGalley. I also purchased a copy to share.

    I’ve loved every one of the books in this series, but I’ve been dying for Wolfe’s story and I was not disappointed! Wolfe is an interesting character, he’s added a lot of humor to the previous books with his quirky ways and his mysterious past. Although he’s the muscle behind the team, the way he thinks has often led me to think of him as almost innocent. He’s got such a pure heart when it comes to those he loves. And he’s fiercely protective of them as well, especially Dana. I wasn’t sure if I’ I’ve loved every one of the books in this series, but I’ve been dying for Wolfe’s story and I was not disappointed!

And he’s fiercely protective of them as well, especially Dana. I wasn’t sure if I’d like Dana or not but I should have known better. Ms. Zanetti did an incredible job of creating a heroine that could stand up to an alpha hero who wanted to control her, all while giving her the type of personality that made me want to be her friend. This book sizzles with adventure, danger, humor and passion. Broken starts off fast and never slows down. With all the other wild Deep Ops characters to help this couple along the way, this made for a great escape from all the things that were currently weighing me down.Dual POVSafe (view spoiler)[no ow/om drama; h not a virgin; H not a manwhore (hide spoiler)]Triggers (view spoiler)[no apparent triggers (hide spoiler)]

    Wolfe has been my favorite since the first book of the series... well, beside Roscoe. Roscoe is on a level all his own.

That's a big reason he's been my favorite from the start, even though I've enjoyed all the characters.I usually struggle with journalist just because they always seem to get themselves in stupid situations and take no heed to their own safety. I didn't have the struggle with Dana, and that probably has more to do with Wolfe always covering her back. They made such a good team together and I adore how protective he is of her.I'm happy to say that Wolfe stood up to my high expectations for his book. My heart just melted with a few scenes that made me love him more. So good!

Wolfe is a Former Navy SEAL whose been working his own vendetta case on the side. Sparks, undeniable chemistry, snarky banter await you when the two flee after the man they were both looking for ends up dead.Second Date: Someone wants one of them dead, Wolfe’s old nemesis has made contact and Dana refuses to go into hiding, so she ends up bunking at Wolfe’s house. I loved seeing these two stubborn, driven characters together. Dana is insightful and sees past Wolfe’s attitude. Scorching moments, RULES, denial and sweet build up play side by side with intense action, danger and hilarious moments involving the team, Roscoe the dog and family.Thrid Date: As the danger escalates, Dana brings the rest of the team in on Wolfe’s case when ties link to her case. This last date sees character growth, some healing, explosive danger and sweet swoon-worthy moments. While fast-paced, the cases threaded together and felt genuine. I loved the dynamics of the team, the teasers about things to come and the camaraderie we witnessed.Broken delivered everything I hoped for and was the perfect escape. I laughed, cried, adored the romance and didn’t want my time with this team to end. This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer

No one should have to be hurt for him.His team had no intention of letting him handle his personal mission on his own. They were a family and he was a big part of that. And all of them are so amazing!Wolfe lost his entire unit due to a devastating betrayal. His thirst for revenge left him with absolutely no desire to get close to someone. If no one got in, then no one got hurt. Not on his watch. And then Dana happened. Her best friend was murdered and she was hunting for the killer. As a reporter, she accepted danger as a benefit of the job and she was willing to risk it all to give her friend some justice. When her case and Wolfe's case become tangled, he finds it impossible to keep her at arms length, no matter how hard he tries. And he definitely tries. But she wasn't going to let his cold shoulder and keep-away attitude deter her. And it was fun to watch!The suspense in this story was eerie and creepy and I had no clue how it would all turn out. I love that the author kept me guessing and on edge. It ramped up my enjoyment level to the nth degree. Then again, that's exactly what I expect from a Rebecca Zanetti novel. Well-paced with an intense plot and even more intense characters, Broken was quite entertaining and more than deserves its must-read status.

Dana being an investigative reporter has an equally strong personality and their clashes in the previous books have made for entertaining reading. This story for me has been the one I have been waiting for and the author did not disappoint."You’re not in charge here…" "…The cuffs say otherwise."There are many things going on in the book in general which is to be expected with all the characters that we have met in the previous offerings, we also get a few new ones in this instalment too which gives me hope for more books in the series over the next few years. But Wolfe’s motives for being on Angus’s team are finally bought to the fore, we are also given more insight into his motivations and why he is the way he is. I will say though that Wolfe’s character as the main focus didn’t feel like the Wolfe I had gotten to know as a secondary entity in the previous books, there were glimpses of him in Broken but the humour I associate with him was a little lacking."I’d rather have blue balls than you dead, sweetheart…"That said it was still no struggle to read, and the author gives great POV with with other team operatives weighing in at pivotal points. Roscoe, is Roscoe, and I loved every minute of the time he spent on the page… well almost, but enough about that, read the book you’ll know what I mean.Driven is up next, with another pair: Angus & Nari finally going front and centre. This duo have bubbling along for a while and with a serial killer added into the mix I am expecting the usual action packed, thrill a minute, sexy ride she always delivers. I just wish I didn’t have to wait until January 21 for it!ARC generously provided via Netgalley, in exchange for the above honest review.

But he’s reluctant to let anyone close to him for fear his nemesis might hurt his loved ones to get at him, especially the alluring woman who keeps needing his backup when getting into sticky situations. Freelance reporter Dana Mulberry needs to find out what happened to her journalist friend. Her findings lead her to a sexy club where she runs into none other than the tall, dark and sexy Wolfe who’s put her squarely in the friend zone. As Wolfe steps in to protect her they find out their cases overlap. Working together while keeping Dana safe tests Wolfe’s control over his feelings towards her and soon they’re both tangled up in more ways than one. Dana is energetic and keen to put her safety on the line for a good story, but she’s more eager to put her heart out for the broken yet incredibly alpha swoony Wolfe. Where Wolfe is fierce and a bit withdrawn, she’s strong and determined. But they make a great team finding common ground in their sense of civic duty and resolve.Zanetti writes an electrifying plot with skill, including characters from past books giving Wolfe and Dana the support characters needed to develop the danger and intrigue that surrounds them. And while Wolf and Dana’s chemistry is palpable, it takes a while for Wolfe to relent. I had met Wolfe since the start of the series. He came of as a bit off and yes, broken. I loved how Zanetti showed this was mostly about Wolfe’s desire to protect everyone around him first. She writes movingly of how much life had taken from him but even more deeply of the reward of letting others help starting with Dana. Their romance was intensely hot and passionate. But not everything was intense danger and romance. Zanetti expertly interweaves some much welcome humor by adding the issue-riddled Roscoe, an alcoholic dog with a shoe and makeup fetish who gives each book and extra star!Broken is book #3 of the Deep Ops series by Rebecca Zanetti. It is a thrilling suspenseful romance told from both points of view, with a happy ending.* I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author via NetGalley. The excerpts are from that copy.

    ARC received for reviewWolfe has been one of my favorites since book one. He likes Dana but doesn't want a relationship with her because he's afraid someone from his past will hurt her because of it. Multiple bad guys running around all connected to his former buddy turned extreme bad guy. Lots of interaction with all the Deep ops peeps and previous couples. Roscoe and Kat are still my favorite. Several new characters introduced to keep this series going.

Rebecca Zanetti’s ‘Broken’ continues a quirky series where a small, almost-forgotten force of misfits band together…and not necessarily get along swimmingly while finding their rocky HEAs en route to saving themselves. Wolfe and Dana are on 2 separate missions, so it seems, but the story does have a familiar ring to it: together their paths do cross, thanks to Angus Force and with a bit of poking in here and there into each other’s business which enjoying the zing of the attraction between them. Much of it that follows however, is a push-pull-type relationship that has Wolfe focused on his own revenge mission and repetitively insisting that he has nothing he can give Dana while the latter seems determined to push Wolfe into something else that he can’t quite entertain, up until they both realise that their missions (and hearts) are on a collision course.‘Broken’ is classic RS, though the pacing is slow until the last 30 pages of the book, where most of the action and developments happen which gave the conclusion a bit of a rushed feel. And like many of Zanetti’s books however, ‘Broken’ is a hodgepodge of many moments that I liked, disliked, was engrossed in and then completely put off by (repeat this cycle several times)—and how is this possible?! The dog’s exaggerated behaviour didn’t made me laugh; instead I cringed each time Roscoe was given way too many ‘human abilities’ even if there was meant pure entertainment value in it. Zanetti does throw some hints here and there about a continuation with some loose ends and new characters; it’s definitely a series I’d follow I think, at least for now though I definitely wish I had more enthusiasm for it. *ARC by the publisher via Netgalley

Wolfe was dressed as a Dom while Dana was dressed as a sub and to protect Dana, Wolfe slapped some pink cuffs on her so other Doms wouldn't mess with her. But she was just about to throw a fit when the men they were there to find ended up dead. Wolfe makes her come back to his place to keep her safe but she's a reporter on a story and staying there under his protection doesn't sit well with her. Once they find themselves in danger again and it looks like not only are bad guys after him but they're after her too, she realizes that she needs to stay with him and his team to stay safe. But staying safe is hard to do when there's more than one bad guy after them. It seemed like no matter where they went, someone was there to try and kill them. Plus there's one guy that Wolfe is talking to and taunting to come and fight him. That guy ends up being a bigger player than he thought he would be in the danger they've been facing but he's determined to keep Dana safe. Wolfe never wanted to fall for her and doesn't seem to think he's worthy of her or his life is too dangerous to have someone like her in it but they do fall for each other and I'm glad because he's actually a really nice guy underneath it all. Once Dana finds out what happened to her friend and Wolfe finally gets the fight that he has wanted with his enemy, the danger picks up and they find themselves and parts of his team in some seriously dangerous situations. The action was great, the romance was wonderful and now I'm looking forward to reading more of this series.Disclosure: I was given an ARC of this book via NetGalley but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I loved, loved, loved this one. The best book in this series so far in my opinion. Wolfe is his unique self while being fulling focused on getting his bad guy and protecting everyone around him. Dana is a strong woman who never lets Wolfe push her around or away in order to keep her safe. They were a well matched couple and even though they bumped heads about how to work their mission together they still worked it out and made a great team. Loved getting to see Wolfe interact with Dana's family, I loved, loved, loved this one. The best book in this series so far in my opinion.

And of course we get to spend time with all our other favourites from the team, and we get some really interesting additions to the team that I'm crossing my fingers means even more books since this series has so many great story lines left to tell I think.

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I'm enjoying the romantic suspense in the Deep Ops series . There is a new couple in each story. The characters and situation is rather over the top, not quite realistic or believable. Although the humor is a bit ridiculous with quirky characters, the violence is gritty. There's a dog and a cat on the team.Since the team is being built, and their connections developed, I would read these books in order.  Each book has a new couple, with someone always in real danger.  They are all wounded by bullets, knives, burns, bruises, and the like in each book. I love the team bonding and how they gradually learn to work more together, with the group supporting whoever is in trouble.Broken is the story of Wolfe and Dana.  We know them from the previous books and that they are attracted to each other.  Dana is a journalist and one of her friends, also a journalist,  has gone missing. She gets a lead on someone who might know where she is and goes "undercover" at a sex party to talk to him. Wolfe is there on a lead for his case.  The action and danger, as well as the sexual tension, take off.These two aren't stupid, but they are so determined to handle everything themselves, without confiding in anyone, especially each other. I understand why they think they need to do it this way but it is wrong and STUPID, not to mention dangerous.Luckily, as they become more personally involved, they share a bit more with each other. Dana breaks first on wanting the whole team involved because she knows they deserve to be aware of the danger, and she wants them to have Wolfe's back.  She still is a bit TSTL  and Wolfe is a little too caveman for me.They are perfect for this unusual team, though. All of them are so messed up, one can't help caring for them. I enjoyed meeting Dana's family; they were awesome.  I can't wait to see where things go next as there are some new team members, and a long time case Force has been working.  Driven is coming next January, and finally, we will get to know Angus Force better.

    I’ve really wanted the author to write a story for Wolfe and I’m so happy that we finally get to know so much more about him ! Wolfe is on a mission all of his own and he is determined to save his team from his violent past.

Wolfe is on a mission all of his own and he is determined to save his team from his violent past. Tracking down the man who betrayed both Wolfe and his fallen comrades though takes him further towards a woman he might want but knows for her own safety he can never have !Dana is determined to find out what has happened to a fellow journalist and her latest lead takes her to a rather salacious and very private party . Dana might have felt uncomfortable in her sexy get up but that’s nothing compared to how she feels when she realises that Wolfe is a sexy as anything, leather clad Dom ! They quickly realise that they are both hunting the same man and together become entangled in an explosive game that will challenge Wolfe to not just confront his past but perhaps look forward finally to his future.I really like Wolfe but honestly think he should have been a little less secretive and a whole lot more honest with his fellow operatives. Perhaps he’s a little too ready to sacrifice himself but nevertheless this larger than life protective man was such fun to read about. Dana is a light touch in this story as she’s not particularly kick ass or anything but doggedly determined and the author uses both her and indeed her family to bring warmth and humour into this story. I think that’s why this series is one I enjoy so much because along with the danger, suspense and steamy romance there’s always absolutely crazy bouts of things to make the reader smile. Wolfe has always stood out with his adorable kitten but there’s even an alcoholic dog and in this story things get very messy indeed. These books are best read in order and always keep me happily turning the pages.This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

Featuring a ragtag team of operatives ‘sort-of’ working under the arm of the US Government, they are a fantastic bunch – skilled, badass and uniquely quirky in so many ways. The biggest badass of them all, Clarence Wolfe and investigative journalist, Dana have been dancing around each other over the last couple of books, and OMG, I loved seeing them finally come together!You could read this book as a standalone, but the character crossover is pretty significant, so reading the previous books will give you a better understanding of each of them and how they all fit together. Wolfe is the big, broody, ex-SEAL with a head injury, a taste for sugary lattes with whipped cream and sprinkles, and he carries a kitten around in his pocket. And while he’s devoted to his team, he’s also got his own mission - he’s out for vengeance, knowing that it could ultimately cost him everything. And it’s because of that, that he keeps himself mostly withdrawn from others. Dana is a brave and spunky freelance journalist who has been working with the Deep Ops team for a while now. She has her own mission of sorts – to find out what happened to her best friend and fellow journalist who disappeared while undertaking an investigation. Following her friend’s footsteps leads her to a collision course with Wolfe, when it turns out that they are investigating the same person.Their collision while undercover in the middle of a sex club, of all places, is a surprise to both of them, but when they start getting shot at, it brings them together like never before. With Dana in danger, Wolfe promptly moves her into his home (always a fun situation, heehee), and the two of them begin working together to hunt down the bad guys. “I’m not sure I should stay with you.”…“I’d rather have blue balls than you dead, sweetheart. Get in the truck.”Her face flushed. “Wofe. Geez. You’re not supposed to say everything that pops into your head.”He reached for her arm, assisting her into the truck. “Hazard of a brain injury, I guess.” Between Wolfe’s no-nonsense snark, Dana’s stubborn feistiness and the raging attraction blazing between the two of them, it’s a recipe for awesome, and we get an intense, exciting, banter and chemistry-filled story as Wolfe tries his best to keep his distance, and Dana refuses to let him. “I want you, and you want me, and the way we’re going, one of us will probably be shot within the week. So, why not?” It’s so much fun, and I think I actually cheered when Wolfe finally gave in and let Dana in. It’s passionate and intense, but there’s an element of sweetness to them which is gorgeous to see. Wolfe may be a mostly solitary man, but he has a huge heart and he cares deeply, and we get to see that over and over again in the way he treats his teammates (and his kitten), and as he goes all out to protect Dana.Wolfe has always kept to himself, but Dana brings him out of his shell, not only with her, but with the rest of the Deep Ops team who are on board to help their friend. My heart ached for all that he’d been through and the impact it had on him and the way he lives his life, but it made it all the more beautiful as we got to see him finally fall in love. With her, and only with her, he wished he could be different from the man he’d become. The love story unfolds right alongside Wolfe and Dana’s investigation. There is mystery, action and thrills as the story plays out, and I was kept guessing right up until the end how it was all going to end. The entire team is there to help, as well as a couple of new, and very welcome, additions, and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the ride. A fantastic addition to the series, I’m so excited for more.4.5 stars!An Advanced Review Copy was generously provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

He has been strong and somewhat silent while providing super sweet coffee beverages with shipped cream and sprinkles. I was eager to read his story and hear who he would end up with. That said, though I enjoyed the story it was not my favorite of this series. I think the reason was that I didn’t feel the same depth to the story as I felt in the previous books. What I liked: * Wolfe: a giant of a man with lethal skills, a TBI to contend with, much loss in his life and a man who genuinely cares for his friends and team.* Dana: dedicated to her job she will do just about anything for her job, as we saw in the first chapter. She assists the Deep Ops team from time to time, is trying to find out what happened to a friend/colleague and has definite interest in Wolfe.* The team: a great collection of misfits that find their niche together* The relationship that develops between Wolfe and Dana* Dana’s family and the way they give a sense of what family and sisterhood is. * That the bad guy was thwartedWhat I did not like: * The bad guy: truly evil and needed to be put down* Being left to wonder what the story is with Lassiter BUT know that is the thread that hooks the team together in the end…or think it will. Did I enjoy this book? YesWould I read more in this series? YesThank you to NetGalley and Kensington Zebra for the ARC – This is my honest review.4 Stars

Yes, he was downright sexy and fierce, but he was also smart and caring and protective of those he considered family. Dana was also a very likable character too! She was sharp and smart and sweet and cared deeply for those around her. Wolfe and Dana's chemistry was snap, crackling and popping throughout the book and in between the danger. I very much enjoyed and got a big thrill watching the sparks fly and the humor....my goodness, there was enough humor and funny moments to put a genuine smile on my face. This book had it ALL and I honestly just can't get enough of these Deep Ops guys and gals!Broken gets a DANGEROUS FIVE RED HOT STARS! Rebecca Zanetti keeps me coming back BEGGING for more.

His protective side has become an obsession that overrules his good sense at times so pitting these two fabulous characters together works perfectly.The story can be a challenge for a first time reader, however, as there is a lot of background that pertains to both the characters and the plot that is alluded to in this story but obviously takes place in previous installments of the Deep Ops series. This leaves holes and frustration for those who haven't read the earlier books. Still, the story is strong enough to be enjoyable either way.

    Please save me from the friends-to-lovers trope where they both want to get together, but we can't. I've read more than my share lately and they are sooooo trite, every one of them.

He is on a one-man personal mission to avenge their deaths. Dana Mulberry keeps distracting him by needing rescue.

Her hang up with Wolfe is that he won't unburden himself to her. They have labeled their relationship as "friendship" and that's fine, if they want to lie to each other, but that makes it really boring when they do it for most of the book. 3 1/2-Stars

    Wolfe was my fave from the beginning as you just knew his story would be a good one. The big burly, quiet guy who carries Kat in his pocket and hands out sweet sugary coffee drinks to everyone with sprinkles on top!!!And of course, being a Rebecca Zanetti book this one did not disappoint one little bit. I pretty much devoured from beginning to end.This is the 3rd book in this series and I highly recommend you read them in order, as reading it as a standalone won't do it any justice at all.I don' Wolfe was my fave from the beginning as you just knew his story would be a good one.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between these two. I had been waiting for Wolfe's book since the first Deep Ops book, Hidden.

I had been waiting for Wolfe's book since the first Deep Ops book, Hidden. I would have to say that I don't think anyone else but Dana could handle Wolfe the way she does (or doesn't in some cases lol.)Essentially, without spoiling the book here we go. -Dana is working on a case regarding a friend of hers that has disappeared. Wolfe is working on tracking down the man who is responsible for his military team's death. Lo and behold, their separate investigations take them down the same path and they team up. -These two go undercover together and end up of course giving into what Wolfe has been denying since Taken where we first met Dana. - A good amount of action- A wedding- A dog wearing heels and eating make up- A deadly Cat and Mouse gameSo did Broken live up to the Deep Ops expectation? Yes, yes it did. So if you like alpha protectors, independent (occasionally bratty) women, and HEA's go ahead and pick this up. I'll probably come back once the book is released and add more meat to this review. :)

Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by FabiolaReview Copy from the PublisherI voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.Broken is the 5th volume in the Deep Ops series by Rebecca Zanetti. I reviewed all the previous books which are composed of 2 long novels and 2 novellas : Hidden (https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... ), Taken (https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... ), Fallen (https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... ), and Shaken, published in the Pivot antholoy (https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... ).In this volume, the main characters are Clarence Wolfe, who is called Wolfe, and Dana Mulberry. We met them in the previous stories : Wolfe since the begining of the series and Dana in Taken.I love Wolfe. He’s the ultimate henchman with a big heart. He always brigs too sweet latte for everybody, walks with a kat in his pocket, speaks many languages and says what he thinks. I love this quote from the book : « Sometimes things were so clear to him, he truly couldn't understand how anybody else could be confused. » It reveals his personality a lot.When the story begins, readers who have been reading it since the first volume know that the heroes have been attracted to each other since their first encounter but insist on considering themselves as friends.We know more about them as well as the reason why they don’t succomb to their attraction : it’s all because of Wolfe who doesn’t want any relationship with the others because he’s got a goal which excludes all personal attachment.As for Dana, although she would like to deepen their relationship, she respects Wolfe’s desire, especially as she’s making her own inquiries about one of her fellow reporter. Indeed, the latter is missing and while the police is searching her, Dana wants to know more about her current investigation.At the beginning of the book, Dana and Wolfe’s investigation lead them to the same place : a sadomasochist sex club. Plus, they came here to find someone and they realize soon that although the name was different, the face was the same. But this man is killed before they can ask him any questions.Afterward, Wolfe decides to join forces with Dana because he quickly understands she’s in danger and he wants to protect her. In the meantime, he hopes to keep his own investigation secret but in vain, of course. LOLI wanted to shake Wolfe sometimes because he absolutely wants to fly solo when everybody tells him that nothing is better than having a team with him, especially this team. He takes a lot of time before easing off with his partners and Dana. He also takes unilateral decisions but the heroine doesn’t let herself pushed around and regularly confront him. In this book we have two strong characters who complement each other. There are not a lot of hot scene but the sensuality is always there and their attraction has been obvious since their encounter. So, when we close the book, we believe in their HEA and we are especially happy for Wolfe who needed some softness around him.On the suspense’s side, action and twists are not lacking. Plus, we have a new element regarding the series’ common thread tied to Angus Force. Fans of the author, of the series and of the romantic suspense subgenre won’t be disappointed.Amongst the secondary characters, all the Deep Ops team are there as well as the previous heroes’ soulmates. We witness the cutting remarks between Angus and Nari Zhang whom we know are bound for being together in another story. I can’t wait to read it.Roscoe, the alcoholic and diabetic dog who also has personality disorders, is more than ever present and ready to protect the heroine.Two new characters make their appearance : Jethro Hanson and Serena Johnson. Not only these two already know each other but also I’m sure Rebecca will write their story. I hope so. LOLThere are two characters I never mentioned in my reviews while they appear in the stories : FBI Agents Rutherford and Fields. They are the Deep Ops’ handlers and their mission is to keep a close eye on the team’s investigations and their interventions. Their own goal, especially one of them, is to take down the contract between Angus Force and the government because they don’t like them. They will never have their own story but I love the way the different heroes drive them nuts. To conclude, I had a great time with this book and I continue to recommend this series filled with humour, emotion and action. The next one will be published in January 2021 and will be titled Driven.

So I fell in love with Wolfe when I crossed paths with him in the anthology Pivot (Read My Review) – and my excitement knew no bounds when the eARC of Broken was approved and waiting for me on my kindle! Wolfe, is one of the most unique characters/protagonists I have ever had the pleasure of reading about – he is one of the quirkiest yet stand up guy as well one of the most contrary human – I mean which hero you have read would carry around a kitten (Kat) in his pocket, yet scare off the bad guys with one withering look and at the same time bring his team mates sugar packed and sprinkled lattes as a way of telling them they his to protect and save. Now, Wolfe charmed me even more than the alcoholic & heel wearing German Shepard, Roscoe, the team mascot – and being an animal person, more than a human person THAT should tell you something – and it doesn’t take long for the reader to understand that Wolfe had his own agenda to join this misfit and outcast deep ops team. But when Wolfe adopts you to be his, he goes all out to do everything in his power to protect those whom he cares about! But what he forgets, is the simple fact that when you become part of this team of misfits and outcasts, you don’t just adopt them, they adopt you right back!Dana is a freelance journalist, whose paths (like the readers) cross with Wolfe and his outcast team during on of their cases – she is intelligent, energetic and really stubborn and irresponsible about her own safety (according to Wolfe) when she gets stuck in a case. But what I really really ADORED about her is the fact she was all in with this broken yet one of the most gentle giants; who however had put her in the friend zone! Rebecca Zanetti has written an explosive book – one that is not only intriguing, fast paced and with twists and turns that the reader WOULD NOT see coming – and an climax whose threads when they come together will give you the AHA moment a reader of thriller mystery would love!! Especially considering that with an eclectic members of a Deep Ops team is considered to be outcasts – this team has made a family amongst themselves that I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this family; even if it was as a third party observer!
