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?

Whew. Ok. First – I want to send Rebecca Zanetti roses or something. I am so in love with this series I could do a cartwheel or a squeal, or something really cool lol. In the first book, Forgotten Sins, I was all about Shane. LOVED Shane. Still do. I loved everything about that book. It was mysterious and emotional and torturous – all things I love.

Sweet Revenge was pretty darn great. Like, if Forgotten Sins scored a 100 on my scale, then Sweet Revenge would be at like, 95. Sweet Revenge is all about Matt, the oldest of the gray brothers. Matt Dean. Holy hell on a stick, the man is something special. He’s fierce and loyal and has such a deep-rooted sense of loyalty to his brothers, you can’t help but love him.

But he’s in trouble. They all are. They have those pesky chips in them that will spell certain doom if they don’t get them out – like now. So Matt is on the search for a surgeon from the Commander’s team. And he think he has a lead on her in a small town named Charmed.

Charmed is small town Americana. Everyone knows everyone, and nearly everyone grew up there. It’s a nice place to live, and well, Matt thinks it’s a good place for the surgeon, Dr. Peters to hide out. And as luck would have it, right away Matter meets Laney, who runs the bar. Temporary cover as a bouncer and free room come with the job, it would seem everything is lining up for Matt.

Yeah. It would seem that way. Except then it all goes to Hell. Hell, it goes further than Hell, but I don’t know where that would be. But its that bad.

This story was fabulous in so many ways. It poured on the mystery and the drama. Excitement and tension were at all time high levels. Sexual chemistry and that spark we all crave in our favorite books were present and at the forefront.

As for Laney? I liked her. I seem to be lucky these days, finding a lot of heroines that I just really like. And Laney is definitely among them. She’s in Charmed building a new life for herself after an abusive boyfriend. She’s absolutely smart, and she is a woman in charge of her life. I really love that. But as the book goes on, you see how incredibly caring she is. She doesn’t just care for herself, or Matt, but she also takes care of nearly everyone she knows in some capacity. I love her capacity to just give of herself for the joy, safety, and well-being of others.

She arched against him and whispered his name.

The sound of her soft voice would stay with him. Through whatever the future held, he’d carry the moment. This woman should be savored, and there was no way he could keep her at arm’s length. She’d slid right into his heart, and instinct told him she’d always live there. For the short time he had left, she’d be with him. Even if he moved across the world from her.

This book has a lot of heart in it. This romance will leave you giggling, weeping, fearful, and hot. You want Matt and Laney to find happiness together. In Sweet Revenge there are definitely twists and turns. There are dead people. There are quite a few people who you know you just can’t quite trust, but you aren’t sure why just yet. You even get a few moments where you are on the edge of your seat.  But you have the ready and steady Matt there to guide you through the whole ordeal, so you know you are in good hands. In terms of romantic suspense, this book is top notch, and I would definitely say the Sins Brothers series is absolutely among my favorites.
