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?

Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes, this author has a great Hemingway style that brings you right into the story from word one. I can only hope #3 comes soon and that Ms White reads it. Other reviewers did not even mention the wonderful narration. It is the narration ,and the good quick dialogue that makes this mini series so wonderful.
There are a few books, I feel are in this league, check out gabra zackman AKA Isabelle Gordon reads. I do not catalog my hundreds of buys by genera, but by reader. I can read a good book, but I listen as a reader can really bring a book to life.
Mattie...so sexy, you just want to eat him up. I purchase a lot of ms White's reads as she can interpret an author's book and really bring it to life. Her male voices are why I continue to make her an automatic romance download. She also has a fast pace that matches an adventure story. So many readers read way too slow, breathy and do not do a good job at a males voice. Check out her Julie James reads and Jill Shalvis. You must make time to laugh if you buy these.
So many, but I loved when our hero first meets our heroine and Eugene.
Audible, you have a winner in this author/Ms White reads!
reviewed wrong book for one more day
I really liked this book, it continued the story well and gave you more insight into the brothers and what they have been through.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I was soooo excited when I saw this book on Audible. I loved the introduction to the Sins Brothers through the first book which was Shane and Josie’s story so I was chomping at the bit to see what would happen next with Matt’s story. I thought I adored Shane, but I think I’m going to have to revise that opinion and just say that all these brothers are a lethal, honorable and Supper Hot class act... And in case you were wondering, these really do need to be read in order because there is a central plot line running through this series even if the main characters change up. These are those delicious twisty-bendy Romantic Suspense type books with Hot and Sexy love Scenes so fair warning you might not want to continue if you don’t want some spoilage for book one.
This story opens with Matt and Nate back in the field. Nate is still hunting down clues to finding Jory and Matt is following the trail to the doctor who worked in the lab that inserted those kill chips in their backs that are set to detonate in six weeks if they don’t get them removed. Shane has worked through the possibilities in the small town he’s trailed her to and narrows it down to a possibility of three women who are all blond and all in some sort of medical role. He entered town on his bike wounded from the last encounter with their pursuers and looking for a place to hole up in the middle of a rain storm...
Laney knows she shouldn't soften her heart toward the wounded man seeking shelter and a job, but he’s a lonely ex-marine and needs help. Matt Dean scares her with the lethal vibes he gives off, but he also attracts her. It’s the attraction that wins the day. She tries the bossy tough gal routine with him, but at the end of the day she still needs his brand of help since the bouncer/assistant bartender for her bar quit just before the biker rally.... Laney has secrets and she has finally found a town where she could stay for a while and put down a few roots, but she has to be so careful. She’s well aware that Matt is a drifter and he only promised the temporary, but now with a mysterious stalker after her who may have already committed murder, it’s nice to have someone taking care of her.
Matt knows full well that he shouldn't get involved with the vivacious sassy little bar owner because he has a job to do and he is all wrong for any woman, but he can’t help being drawn in by Laney. She’s exactly the sort of woman he finds appealing and she makes him want things that he can never have. As he checks the suspects for the doctor off his list narrowing them down one by one, he finds himself prime suspect for the local murder and he still has to keep Laney safe. Meanwhile, he knows the clock is ticking on he and his brothers’ lives..
I Can't wait for the third book, BLIND FAITH, and will be buying it as soon as Audible release it... :)

First Thought when Finished: Matt & Laney really worked in Sweet Revenge by Rebecca Zanetti even though in the beginning I wanted to throttle them both!
Quick Thoughts: Gonna admit that Sweet Revenge took a bit to hook me in BUT once you hit the 1/4 mark it was off the hook. I really liked the push/pull with Matt & Laney. They both had reasons to be angry. They both had things to hide. They both were justified in their positions but it was great watching them break through the barriers. The overall story moved a long nicely but I am beginning to worry about our boys. I mean I think it should all work out but nothing like cutting it down to the wire. The action, story, romance, and characters all delivered in Sweet Revenge. Now I need to get to book 3!
Narrated by: Karen White /Length: 12 hrs and 30 mins
Karen does an excellent job with this series. She has a great voice for action and romance. Her sense of urgency in the right areas just works so well. Her male voices are strong. Her women are great. Overall just an enjoyable listen.
Part of my Read It, Rate It, File It, DONE! Reviews
Time spent commuting passes by much easier listening to books. I prefer romance books but I do enjoy other books as well.
What can I say, other than I would be surprised if you don't love them too. They have action, hot sex, romance, strong women and hunky hot male leads. What more do you want? I was on the edge of my seat with from the action/drama and had to practically take a cold shower after the sex scenes. This author has shot to my top 10. I highly recommend this series. Great stories. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
Narrator: Karen White does a fine job with these books. She's definitely an asset to the stories. Although, I think they would have benefited by having a male/female team instead.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Rebecca Zanetti is conquering the romantic suspense genre with her Sin Brothers series and I am absolutely loving it. Genetically engineered soldiers, boot camps from birth, the most sinister of conspiracies, and a self destruct chip that can end it all. And lets not forget the passion and romance that lights the pages on fire!
Matt Dean is racing the clock to save not only himself, but his brothers as well, from a chip that was implanted in each of them and set to go off in a matter of weeks. Hot on the trail of the doctor behind the hideous surgery, Matt finds himself in a small, quint town in Idaho named Charmed, working for bar owner, Laney Jacobs. Each with secrets of their own, neither Matt or Laney have time for the attraction that is smoldering between them. When Laney's life is threatened though, Matt can't help but become even more involved with her, and the passion that they fight quickly becomes a loosing battle. As their pasts collide the danger that surrounds Matt and Laney escalates, can Matt protect everyone he loves before his time runs out?
Being the eldest of the Gray brothers, Matt has always felt that it was his job to protect his three younger brothers and he will do anything to see them safe. Failing at protecting his youngest brother though, Matt is wracked with guilt and even more determined to save his remaining two brothers from those that are hunting them. Matt is a character with a lot of heart but he's also a total alpha male when it comes down to it. He had so many little nuances to his character I fell more in love with him with each page. And I adored him and Laney together. Their banter, their fervor and passion, it ignited the pages. Laney was an enjoyable heroine as well, loyal and courageous. Not just a sizzling romance though, Sweet Revenged had a fast paced plot that kept me on the edge of my seat with several twists that left me spinning.
I would recommend listening to, Forgotten Sins, the first book in this series before starting on Sweet Revenge as 1. It was a fantastic story and 2. You learn the history of the Gray brothers. The continuing story arc has me itching for more and I would definitely recommend the Sin Brothers series to romantic suspense and military romance fans everywhere!
Karen White was good with the delivery of the story.
This series is amazing. Holy hotness lol. the only complaint I have is that there really should be a male narrator for hero POV in these books, though the narrator they do have does a good job it could have been even better.
This book flowed well, had a decent plot and made me laugh out loud. looking forward to go ishing the series.
That the brothers stuck together despite all of the odds against them. The author interwove each of their lives into each story while telling the story of the main hero.
They are coming for you.
Say something about yourself!
This is a good story/action and romance. The POV of the characters kinda repeat themselves. The narrator has the same tone and puts me to sleep so I am having a hard time staying interested in the series because of this. If the story would speed up a bit and had a different narrator I would have given it a 5 star.
