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?
Forgotten Sins pulled me in from the first page.
I really liked the characters. The main character, Josie, is ballsy and fun. She doesn’t back down, which I think makes her a great counterpoint to Shane. Shane is sweet and sexy, even though he is a bit of a chauvinist; convinced that Josie is weak and fragile simply because she is female. I liked the way they interacted and fought for each other.
I don’t usually go for army romances; I think I liked this one because it has the sci-fi element added to it. (Don’t want to reveal too many of Shane or his brothers secrets.) But I also think I liked it because of the writing. The way Zanetti combined the action and romance together really kept the book moving. (Plus the sex scenes were yummy too!) I also liked the way she revealed Shane’s memories. Yes, it was in bits and pieces, but it really flowed with the story and kept me interested in seeing what he would remember next. There were also some interesting plot twists that I didn’t see coming either, but they really made the story even juicier!

The ending was well written. Of course, there were things left unanswered and not all the problems were solved, but it isn’t a dramatic cliffie. Altogether, the ending is a nice set up for the next book in the series. (I assume there’s going to be a book for each brother.) I gladly would read the next books in the series not only to find out the answers to some of the more interesting questions, but also to find out more about Shane’s brothers. The author gives you a taste of them that definitely leaves you wanting more!
Overall, not only am I giving this one 5 out of 5 controllers, I’m also giving it a royalty award. It was a great romance that kept me hooked from beginning to end and I think it’s a great start to what looks to be an awesome series.
