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. 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?… (lisätietoja)

This was really good! I have had a copy of this book to read for years but failed to actually start reading it until now. After reading the first book in the series recently, I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I do feel like this series is best when read in order since some of the events from the first book come into play in this installment. Once I started reading this one, I hard a hard time putting it down and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Matt and Laney are the focus of this book. Matt is the oldest of his brothers and always tries to take care of everything. He needs to find the doctor that has the ability to save him and his brothers and he has it narrowed down to the small town of Charmed, Idaho. He gets a job working at the local bar owned by Laney and the pair have an instant connection. Before long, things in town get a lot more complicated than they ever imagined.

Matt and Laney were both great characters and I thought that they were great together. I thought that the chemistry between them was amazing. They did have a few communication issues at the start of the story but they eventually learned to work together very well. They were both incredibly capable people that were protective of the people that they cared about. It was really easy to cheer this pair on.

This story was really exciting. Matt's mission to find the doctor that could save them was interesting enough but there was some additional crime occurring in the small town that really added to the excitement. There were some revelations in the story that completely surprised me and a ton of action worked into the story. It was really easy to be hooked by this story.

Karen White continues to do an amazing job with the narration of this series. I really like the quality of her voice and thought that she did a wonderful job with all of the character voices. I thought that she was able to bring a lot of emotion to the story. I had such a good time listening to this story and believe that her narration added to my enjoyment.

I would recommend this book to others. I put off reading this series for a number of years and am so glad that I finally have made it a priority. This book was filled with wonderful characters, intense action, and some incredibly romantic moments. I cannot wait to start reading the next book in the series.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley and borrowed a copy of the audiobook from my local library. ( )

I'm really enjoying this series, although this book has some of the same flaws as the first in the series. As other reviewers have said, Zanetti's got an incredible talent for balancing suspense against romance while keeping tension high. Maybe because she packs so much into the books, though, some details slip a bit... If a reader pays (critical) attention, there are tiny plot holes related to motivation and subplots. I'm not even sure I'd pick up on them if I weren't an editor, but with that being my job, I can't help but noticing and being annoyed by them. What bothers me a bit less (because I expect it of the genre at this point, I suspect), but what will probably bother more readers in the long run, is that the romances hinge on insta-lust/insta-love in a way that feels far less believable than the characters themselves. And, in a book where emotion and connection are so incredibly important on a page-by-page basis, that's somewhat hard to ignore.

Yet, despite its flaws, this book is hard to put down. Zanetti's characters are living, breathing entities that it's hard not to get wrapped up in, and the suspense elements are twisty enough that, especially if you have a hard time putting these books down (as I do), they move so quickly that the turns and moves in plot can easily take you by surprise, even if they might seem slightly predictable in hindsight--'in hindsight' being key there, of course.

So, overall, yes, I'd absolutely recommend this series to readers of romantic suspense. But, make sure you start with the first book--with this series, it definitely matters, though I think this second in the series actually outshines it. ( )

Sweet Revenge
4 Stars

Matt Dean, a genetically engineered soldier and former member of a special black ops team, is searching for the woman who can save his life and those of his brothers. All clues lead to Charming, Idaho, a small town that seems to attract women on the run, including Laney Jacobs, the bar owner with a troubled past who brings out all of Matt’s protective instincts. But Matt and Laney have little time for romance when their secrets begin to catch up with them.

As the oldest of the Dean brothers, Matt has taken it upon himself to do what needs to be done in order to protect his siblings often at the expense of his own needs. Consequently, his acting on his attraction to Laney, the first selfish move he has ever made, is all the more intense and emotional.

Laney is an exceedingly likable heroine mainly due to her tendency toward picking up and caring for stray people and animals. Interestingly enough, despite her secrets and the potential for a huge conflict between them, there is very little angst in Laney and Matt's relationship and their romance is good despite the insta-love trope.

As in the first installment, the plot is quite complex with several parallel threads including Matt’s search for the missing doctor, Laney's stalker and the threat posed by the Commander and his minions. On the whole, these storylines are all well developed with a surprising twist or two. Nevertheless, there are one or two questionable moments that require some suspension of disbelief, especially Matt’s injury at the end.

Overall, a fast-paced and action packed romantic suspense read and I’m looking forward to seeing how things work out for the Dean brothers. ( )

Fast and entertaining read. I love the dynamics between Laney and Matt, with them not knowing each other and then after everything turned upside down for them. I absolutely can't believe that huge bomb in the freaking epilogue! ( )

And the plot thickens. I really liked the entire book but the ending and then the sneak peak at the next book were my favorite parts.

Little background about the series: Born and raised in a military camp 4 young boys each with differently super human capabilities were forced to train to be killers. They plotted there escape as adults and have been in hiding ever since trying to bring down the whole organization.
(possible spoilers if you haven’t read the first book)
Matt Dean is the oldest of the 4 and he has been protecting them all his life. In their continued search for the Dr that implanted them Matt has landed in Charmed, Idaho where they thing the Dr is. Outside of a bar in an alley Matt meets the owner of the bar and is not only immediately attracted to her but sees her as his cover while he tries to figure out which woman in the town is who he is looking for.

Laney Jacobs is a woman you can tell has some secrets she is hiding and the one thing she doesn’t need to is be attracted to a man when she may have to run at anytime. She also seems to have attracted a stalker that may be escalating.

As with the first book there are two story lines going on at the same time and how these two merged was a surprise. The author does a great job of giving us a little more of the puzzle pieces as we get each brother’s story but still leaves us with the overall cliffhanger that was started in the first book.

Now the next book in the series should give us a lot more information and Nathan’s sneak peak at the back of this book was torture knowing I’m going to have to wait until next year to read…
