About the Book:

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?






The Review Banner




Sweet Revenge by Rebecca Zanetti is full of adventure, danger, and romance!


Matt Dean was created in a test tube, as were his three brothers.  They were engineered to have special skills, mostly to be soldiers, as were several other men in a mysterious compound.  Matt and his brothers have since escaped the commander and the doctors who created them, only to discover that they had chips implanted near their spinal cords that are set to destruct in six weeks.  Matt’s goal is to find the doctor who planted the chips and get them removed or deactivated, so that him and his brothers can truly be free.


Enter Laney Jacobs.  The pretty bartender discovers Matt outside her bar with a knife wound and promptly passes out.  She offers Matt a job as a bouncer, and soon begins to fall for the sexy soldier.  Matt knows he needs to keep his focus on the mission and finding the surgeon, but he finds himself getting distracted by Laney, the sweet bar owner who may have more secrets than she’s letting on.


I loved this novel a lot!  It’s the second in the Sins Brothers series, but it can be read as a stand alone and you can still mostly understand what’s happening.  Matt is a great leading man to read about.  He’s strong, dangerous, and loves his brothers more than anything else.  He’s protective, but not to the point where it’s annoying.  He wants to do what he can to help others around him.


Laney was fun as well.  She kept Matt on his toes, and doesn’t have a problem putting him in his place when she feels as though he’s going too far.  She doesn’t always succeed in putting him in his place, but she definitely tries.  The chemistry between the two of them was amazing.  They had great banter going, and they both tried their best not to get emotionally attached, both for their own reasons.


The plot is really intriguing, and something I haven’t read about before.  Whatever compound the brothers were born at is engineering soldiers for some reason (It might have been explained in the first novel, or it could just be a mystery waiting for a big reveal at the end of the series).  The boys are taught to fight and kill pretty much from the time they’re born.  Some of the men at the compound had no problem killing, but Matt and his brothers always wanted their freedom, and they’re really close to getting it.


The book was paced really well and left me hanging on the edge of my seat.  Never was there a time where I was really bored, or I thought things were moving too slow or too quickly.  The bedroom scenes were just steamy enough to be hot, but not enough to detract from the fact that there is so much else going on, like the fact that Matt may only have six weeks to live.


I’m giving Sweet Revenge 5 out of 5 controllers.  Great plot, great characters, well written, and the perfect mix of edge of your seat action with steamy romance scenes to leave you wanting more.
