The One Man She Can't Have

Matt Dean was born to fight…and kill. A member of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be the perfect soldiers with an expiration date. Now, with time running out, he's gone rogue in a relentless quest for the one person who can save them. His mission leads him to Charmed, Idaho…and to a beautiful woman with eyes like emeralds and a body made for pleasure.

The One Woman He Can't Resist

Laney Jacobs knows the mysterious, handsome stranger is trouble from the moment he walks into her bar, looking for a job. She's spent years running from her own past—the last thing she needs is a romantic entanglement. But Matt's strong arms offer her protection, and his gentle touch promises passion unlike anything she's ever known. As lethal forces surround them, revealing explosive secrets about Matt's past and putting everything—and everyone—he holds dear in danger, can he save them all before time runs out?

Thoughts:

Rebecca Zanetti is conquering the romantic suspense genre with her Sin Brothers series and I am absolutely loving it. Genetically engineered soldiers, boot camps from birth, the most sinister of conspiracies, and a self destruct chip that can end it all. And lets not forget the passion and romance that lights the pages on fire!


Matt Dean is racing the clock to save not only himself, but his brothers as well, from a chip that was implanted in each of them and set to go off in a matter of weeks. Hot on the trail of the doctor behind the hideous surgery, Matt finds himself in a small, quint town in Idaho named Charmed, working for bar owner, Laney Jacobs. Each with secrets of their own, neither Matt or Laney have time for the attraction that is smoldering between them. When Laney's life is threatened though, Matt can't help but become even more involved with her, and the passion that they fight quickly becomes a loosing battle. As their pasts collide the danger that surrounds Matt and Laney escalates, can Matt protect everyone he loves before his time runs out?

Being the eldest of the Gray brothers, Matt has always felt that it was his job to protect his three younger brothers and he will do anything to see them safe. Failing at protecting his youngest brother though, Matt is wracked with guilt and even more determined to save his remaining two brothers from those that are hunting them. Matt is a character with a lot of heart but he's also a total alpha male when it comes down to it. He had so many little nuances to his character I fell more in love with him with each page. And I adored him and Laney together. Their banter, their fervor and passion, it ignited the pages. Laney was an enjoyable heroine as well, loyal and courageous. Not just a sizzling romance though, Sweet Revenged had a fast paced plot that kept me on the edge of my seat with several twists that left me spinning. 

I would recommend reading, Forgotten Sins, the first book in this series before starting on Sweet Revenge as 1. It was a fantastic story and 2. You learn the history of the Gray brothers. The continuing story arc has me itching for more and I would definitely recommend the Sin Brothers series to romantic suspense and military romance fans everywhere!

I love this series too. I am impatient for the next book after that last twist at the end of Matt's book.
