Book Review: Forgotten Sins and Sweet Revenge (Book 1 and 2 of Sin Bros)

I actually read these books in reverse order because Sweet Revenge was available on eARC first, but even knowing what I knew from Matt's story, I was able to really get into Shanes's story and enjoy them both.  That being said, I recommend finding out all about Shane and his love for Josie before you learn about Matt's relationship with Laney!

From the Publisher:

Forgotten Sins (Book 1) - Currently available in both e-book and paperback

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 when the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.

Her Love Can Save HimShane 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? 

Sweet Revenge (Book 2) Currently available on e-book and pre-order paperback

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 Reviews:

OMG - these guys are HOT!  If you like military guys, a suspenseful romance or a ton of smart action, you need to read about Shane and Matt - and heck, you need to put your name on the list for books 3 and 4 right now!  

Believe it or not, the action takes a back seat to the love stories for me and the reason is that Rebecca Zanetti paired these two hot hunks with intelligent, strong women who could see beyond the situations they were put in and love the guys - despite the lies, history and current situations they face!

Book 1 starts hot and heavy with the action and brings the love story out as the characters face the challenges of staying alive despite the threats against them.  Book 2 starts out hot and heavy with the romance and leads you into the action in the second half of the book.  

Despite having read the books out of order, I highly recommend reading Forgotten Sins before you read Sweet Revenge!  I am totally ready for the other brother's stories and to see how Ms. Zanetti brings the continuity plotline to fruition!

If you like romance, action, suspense and hot military guys, then you need to add the Sin Bros. series to your TBR Pile!
