GR's Summary:

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?

My Thoughts:

Forgotten Sins is the first book in the romantic suspense series, Sin Brothers by Rebecca Zanetti.  I could easily seen this story coming to the life in the movie theater.  Their was action, suspense, intrigue, mystery, conspiracy, and red hot seduction!  From the very start, Forgotten Sins grabbed my attention and kept it through!  Talk about crazy plot twists, secrets, and enemies everywhere!

Shane Dean wakes up in a hospital, with a concussion and amnesia.  He doesn't remember anything about his life.  The detective on the case finds Josie's information.  When she comes to the hospital, she informs him that she is his wife, but he left her two years ago without any explanation. Shane doesn't know how he could have ever left Josie.  She looks like an angel, and he may not remember any specifics about his life, but he knows in his heart that he loved her.  

Josie has been trying to reach Shane so that he would sign divorce papers.  She has finally moved on from him, and now he's back to break her heart again, if she lets him.  Shane always kept secrets from Josie, so she knows very little about his life before her.  

They had a whirlwind romance, got married, and were together only a few months before he left her.  Those months were the happiest of her life, because she was finally a part of a family.  Being an orphan her whole life, and going from foster home to foster home has been lonely.  She decides to stay by Shane's side long enough to help him, and find out the real reason that he left her.  Is this Shane and Josie's second chance at love, or will he break her heart all over again?

I loved Forgotten Sins.  Some of my favorite parts included bits and pieces of Shane's memory coming back to him.  His childhood was intriguing and horrifying at the same time.  Shane has super human abilities with hearing, strength, and fighting.  As he began to put the pieces of his life back together, it made for an excellent story.  There were a ton of plot twists, which kept the story exciting, and me constantly guessing who the bad guys were.

The romance and passion between Shane and Josie was red hot!  Ms. Zanetti knows how to craft a sensual seduction that is full of intense and raw sexuality.  The feelings and passion between these two characters was palpable.  I loved Shane's brothers Matt and Nathan!  I cannot wait to read their stories and learn more about the youngest brother, Jory.

My Rating:

Forgotten Sins is one of my favorite stories in the adult romantic suspense genres!  It had all the aspects that make a book in this genre great; such as action, plot twists, red hot romance, suspense, and mysteries to be solved.  What a wild ride!  I cannot wait to continue this series.  I give, Forgotten Sins by Rebecca Zanetti, 4 Heart Racing, Action-Packed, Seductive, Sexy, Super Soldier Filled Stars!

About Rebecca Zanetti:

Rebecca Zanetti wrote her first story when she was six – a romance between a princess and neighboring prince. The princess fell out of her castle and the prince rescued her. A happily ever after was had by all. 

This theme of romance has been carried through Rebecca’s works until present time. While today’s heroine may have a medical degree, black belt in Karate and her own 401K, she’s still after that happy ending. And today’s prince may have fangs and wear a black hat, but hey, a modern princess likes a guy who bites. 

Rebecca attended Pepperdine University, earning a bachelor’s degree in Journalism with a Political Science emphasis. While there she worked as the Editor-in-Chief of The Graphic newspaper, a member of the Pi Phi Sorority and an intern for President Reagan, who still gave 3-5 speeches a week, even though he was no longer president. 

After college, Rebecca worked as an art curator and a Senate aide before heading to law school, where she received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Idaho. She married Tony Zanetti in the middle of her second year of law school and became pregnant with their first child during the third year. She graduated law school, gave birth three weeks later, and took the Bar Exam three weeks after that. All she remembers about the bar exam is that it was so quiet in the testing room, she thought about taking a quick nap. But she continued on, passed the bar and became a lawyer. She worked for a large firm, then a small firm, then the county while also teaching legal classes at her local community college. Now she writes romances about vampires, cowboys, and soldiers. 

Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides there with her husband, children and extended family who inspire her every day. Rebecca has completed several manuscripts, winning award throughout the writing industry for her work. She is currently writes the Dark Protector series for Kensington Publishing, the Maverick Montana series for Entangled Publishing, and the Sin Brothers series for Grand Central Publishing.
