My Rating: 4 Stars
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?
Oooh I love me some Matt Dean! Sweet Revenge was an amazing read. It was fully developed, the characters were relatable and the suspense gripped me from the beginning. I felt like there was so much going on in this book that it was over almost too soon. But, the great thing about this series in general is the story arc that will connect all of the books. The Dean brothers are still searching for and hoping to destroy the Commander. Along the way they discovered that the people after them aren't the only thing that could kill them. With danger in Idaho and the Commander closing in it is definitely a race against time.
"I've lived a dark life, and you're all light. I'd break my own arm before I'd hurt you."
Now, they must find one of the doctors who was on duty in the camps they were held in. In his search for said doctor, Matt Dean, the oldest and most responsible of the Dean brothers heads to Charmed, Idaho and meets Laney Jacobs. He can tell Laney is hiding from someone. But Laney is far from a damsel in distress. She is a tough, stubborn, bar-owner who melts at Matt's touch. Matt, a hard, jaded soldier softens under Laney's gaze. These two find love in the most unsuspected place in the midst of all hell breaking loose. There are secrets that are revealed that could tear them a part. And the Commander isn't the only one after them. It takes a lot of trust, and strong will to live through the mission they must go on to save the Dean brothers. Matt is so careful with Laney at first. He tries to coddle her but, she is having none of it. Matt is a yummy, sexy alpha male that will have you lusting and yelling at him in no time. Laney, on the other hand, is all heart and pride. They both don't find it easy to give into their attraction but, with chemistry like these two have they don't hold out for long.
"But she'd figure out something to save his life. Even if she lost hers."
We also see more development of Jory's story. I have a feeling of where that is going but, with Rebecca Zanetti you never know. I was intrigued by Matt in the Forgotten Sins. He was always so hard on himself, and held himself solely responsible for how their lives turned out. It was comforting to see Laney help him carry that load and ease his hardened heart. This book opened up so many more questions to be answered in the remainder of the series and I can't wait to see where it all goes. Sweet Revenge has a perfect balance of love, lust and suspense. Matt and Laney will warm your heart but, also make you laugh out loud with their banter. While each book has its standalone couple story there are overlying story arcs that require you to read from the beginning of the series. Trust me it is so worth it. The Sins Brothers are quickly faves of mine!
