A betrayal he couldn't forget . . .
For Nate Dean, love is a four-letter word. As part of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be ruthless soldiers with an expiration date. They were loyal only to one another . . . until Nate laid eyes on the woman who stole his heart and blew his world apart. Now, years later, his family is still paying the price for his mistake. But as time runs out, there's only one person who can save his family: the very woman Nate swore he'd never trust again.
A love she couldn't deny . . .
The moment Audrey Madison spies Nate across a crowded ballroom, she can barely breathe. He's just as undeniably sexy as she remembers, yet there's an edge to him now that's as irresistible as it is dangerous. When he asks for her help, Audrey can't refuse. But she has secrets of her own-secrets that, if Nate ever discovers them, may cost them both their lives . . .
I love the Sins Brothers! This third book in the Sins Brothers series really keep the action going, as the guys are counting down to the day their self-destruct kill chips explode against their spines. Somehow, in this short amount of time, they are each having these epiphanies of life, love, and family. Book three is Nate's book, and I definitely was not disappointed!
So Nate, as we've seen in the previous books, is kind of like the caretaker of the guys. He's the second oldest, and was often put in the position of taking care of Shane and Jory while Matt was away on mission. When they were in the compound, he fell in love with Dr Madison's daughter, Audrey. Throughout the series, there have been mixed feelings about Audrey. How much was she a part of everything? Was she aware of just how evil her mother is?
Well, as we see in Blind Faith, Audrey is very much an independent young woman. She's not scar-free from the past, and well, there are still some unresolved feelings for Nate. And of course, we know Nate still has feelings for her. And when these two find each other back in each other's lives, the memories of the past fly forward. Secrets come out, truths are told. I definitely loved the give and take in their relationship, and their second chance at making things right. Let me tell you - there are some major things that happen in this book with Audrey and Nate. We are talking game-changing!!
As in previous books, Rebecca Zanetti really packs in the action in those story. I mean seriously, it would rival any special effects block buster. In fact, I have a secret wish that this series would be made into a movie. With the military, the secret elite soldiers, the romances, espionage, love... I have no doubts that people would be lining up. In Blind Faith, the story takes place in DC, so there is a very political backdrop piled on top of the military theme. I really loved it! Normally, I'm not a political fan, but Zanetti made this story so addicting and fantastic, I was absolutely spellbound.
His mouth covered hers with no hesitancy, no question - as if he had every right to go deep. His tongue was savage and demanding, holding nothing back and accepting no evasion. He tasted of loneliness, anger, and lust. Hard, needy, demanding lust.
We can't forget this is a romance! Nate is definitely no slouch when it comes to the Alpha male - sexy beast mentality! It's easy to fall for him in this book. Now Audrey.... I liked her, but it definitely took me a little bit longer to warm up to her. She just has so many secrets, and she's distanced herself. However, it looks as if Nate is exactly what she needs to be a great heroine.
And still - we have the mystery of Jory. Is he dead? Is he alive? What in the world happened to him? There was a sneak peak at the next book, so that's incredibly exciting. But I barely even looked at it - I want to be surprised to what's happening in the last book!
