His Secrets Can Destroy Her
From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked by the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.
Her Love Can Save Him
Shane can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside—or who he even is—but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew—one who carries such a deadly secret?

Crystal's Thoughts:

Forgotten Sins is a nail-biting, in-your-face, page-turner that I loved. Government conspiracies and super soldiers isn't a new idea in the romantic suspense world, but I really liked the twist Zanetti put on it. Test tube babies, deadly military camps for children, secret missions in and out of our country. Not to mention crazy doctors and sadistic military officers.  The plot is fast moving and keeps you engaged in the story. 

The chemistry between Shane and Josie is blatant, no matter how many years or miles has separated them, it still burns strong.  The building of the romance was paced well and felt real. Yes, there is an instant lust between then when they reunite and a past love. But Shane can't remember his past and everything Josie thought she knew is a lie. So really, they have to start over. Learn each other again. 

If you've read my reviews in the past then you might have picked up on the little fact that I am hard to please in the heroine department, but Zanetti has created a well defined heroine here that won't get any complaints from me. ☺  Josie does an admirable job fighting her feelings for Shane, he isn't the man she thought he was and she can't trust him. I really liked her character. Yes, she did waffle back and forth due to trust and abandonment issues but I think she had just cause. As for Shane, he makes for a drool-worthy alpha male that will use any means necessary to protect those he calls his. He is the epitome of a romantic suspense hero. 

Distrust, betrayal, conspiracies, secrets, danger and love - Rebecca Zanetti's Forgotten Sins' is rampant with all these and more! A well-written and well-rounded introduction to a wild new series that has my grabby hands twitching for more. Looking forward to the as-of-yet-untitled, book two, coming out at the end of the year.
