GR's Summary:

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?

My Thoughts:

Sweet Revenge was an excellent sequel in the Sin Brothers Series.  I love how Ms. Zanetti has one major plot line that is woven throughout the entire series, yet adds smaller unique plot lines to each book.  It makes each book in the story start off intense, gain momentum, and hold the readers attention from all of the suspense, action, and mystery that each book provides.

In this story, we get the oldest Dean Brother, Matt's story.  Time is running out for the Dean Brothers.  They each have a chip that was surgically embedded in their spine, and is due to explode after five years, if not reset or removed carefully and correctly.  Matt, Nate, and Shane's chip is due to go off and kill them in six weeks.  Matt is on a mission to find the surgeon who embedded the chips, so that he can save his brothers.  Based off of investigative work done by Shane, the location has been narrowed down to the small town of Charmed, Idaho, with three women that are most likely the surgeon that they are seeking.

When Matt arrives, he meets the beautiful, sassy, and sweet bar owner, Laney Jacobs.  He establishes his cover story by  becoming a bouncer and bar hand, which also provides him with a small apartment above the bar.  As Matt begins his search for the surgeon, he finds himself drawn to Laney.  He doesn't need any distractions, but he quickly falls for her and is determined to protect her.  You see, a serial killer is on the loose, targeting beautiful and professional women is small sleepy towns.  As Matt and Laney begin to fall in love, they wonder if they will survive the constant threat of danger that surrounds them.

The Dean brothers are sexy, strong, loyal, and deadly!  These alpha's will be loved by any hot-blooded female!  This series seems to be picking up momentum, and getting better with each book.  I find myself highly invested in the lives of the Dean Brothers, and I am hopeful that all of them will get their happily ever afters.  We still don't know if the youngest Dean Brother, Jory is alive, but there is hope.    

My Rating:

Nate's story is next, and from the ending in Sweet Revenge, it promises to be a great one!!! I give, Sweet Revenge, by Rebecca Zanetti, 4.5 Searingly Swoon-Worthy, Adrenaline Filled, Dangerous and Deadly Stars!  I could not put this book down.  The pages flew by, the plot twists kept my rapt attention, and the ending blew my mind!  I am about to begin, Blind Faith, and have high hopes for this next segment in the series.

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.
