Sweet Revenge: Matt Dean and Laney Jacobs
(Sin Brothers #2)
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?
Sweet Revenge by Rebecca Zanetti is the second in the Sins Brothers series. This is a series about four brothers who were created in a lab by the military to be the perfect soliders. It’s kind of like the old TV show Dark Angel but not quite that extreme with the enhancements. The only problem with the Comanders plan for the Gray Brothers is that they loved each other way more then they loved the brutal training the commander put them through. The three remaining brothers ave six weeks to live before they are literally blown from the inside out. There were explosives inserted right next to their spines to ensure their cooperation. Matt is on a mission to find one of the Dr.’s that could have performed the surgery in attempt to live past the six weeks they have left. A postcard sent to one of the Dr.’s leads him to Charmed, Idaho. He is bleeding from a knife wound when he meets Laney in the alley outside her bar, in a moment of stupid compassion she takes him and then everything goes to hell and back.
From beginning to end we are taken on a passionate and dangerous journey. From the moment these two meet the sparks fly, I LOVED the chemistry between these two from the get go. The chemistry while quick and powerful it could have easily felt forced or as the dreaded Insta-Love however, this attraction and subsequent love was effortless and meant. I adored Laney she has a dark past of her own but is also smart and knows when to step up and back down she is quick witted and sassy she is able to stand up to the force that is Matt. Matt is surprised that he can’t cow tow this petite bar owner, usually he doesn’t have any problems dominating anyone but his bartender gives as good as she gets. These two don’t even have time to settle into their mutual attraction when the bodies start to fall. It quickly comes to light that a deranged serial killer is after Laney and they she has a few secrets of her own. Matt almost loses sight of the mission because of the temptation in the form of a green eyed brunette and the trouble that she brings, but if he accomplishes nothing else in what time he has left he vows that he will see his Laney safe even if he has to hunt down a killer.
You will be quickly absorbed into the story as takes off at a sprint from the beginning and never lets up. If there is not some sort of action taking place the passion between Matt and Laney is imploding off of the pages. Neither can afford the distraction their attraction is bringing and even though they agree its temporary from the beginning neither can seem to let the other go. Both Matt and Laney have some serious baggage and trust issues and that’s not even taking into account that if Matt doesn’t find the surgeon and answers, he’ll be dead in six weeks. Not a lot of time to save his own life and that of his brothers especially when he has an elite military unit after him and a serial killer to deal with. A tall order of events even for Matt. Matt is a protector by nature and he wants to make sure all of his loved ones are taken care of; it’s because of his protector nature that he feels like such a failure when it comes to his lost brother Jory. He made a promise to his brothers and he wasn’t able to keep it with Jory. It about breaks your heart whenever he thinks of his fallen brother. The loyalty and love Matt feels for his brothers is inspiring and emotion packed. With this book are getting it all, loveable characters, action, passion, romance and an emotional ride. I loved this ride from beginning to end and can’t wait for the next book. Tomorrow would not be soon enough for Nate’s book, too bad we have to wait until May for the next installment. Patience is a virtue, one I don’t have!
