Overview

A betrayal he couldn't forget . . .

For Nate Dean, love is a four-letter word. As part of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be ruthless soldiers with an expiration date. They were loyal only to one another . . . until Nate laid eyes on the woman who stole his heart and blew his world apart. Now, years later, his family is still paying the price for his mistake. But as time runs out, there's only one person who can save his family: the very woman Nate swore he'd never trust again.

A love she couldn't deny . . .

The moment Audrey Madison spies Nate across a crowded ballroom, she can barely breathe. He's just as undeniably sexy as she remembers, yet there's an edge to him now that's as irresistible as it is dangerous. When he asks for her help, Audrey can't refuse. But she has secrets of her own--secrets that, if Nate ever discovers them, may cost them both their lives . . .

    I had a difficult time deciding on what to include and not include in the review. So many things transpired that I can’t even wrap my head around. Car chases, fights, explosions, betrayals, and a new enemy emerging from the shadows are just a fraction of what’s in store for readers. When you think you’ve got the story figured out, the author throws a twist that you didn’t see coming! There are also a lot of steamy sex scenes between Audrey and Nate that had my Kindle fogging up! 

    The book is brilliant. I loved every bit of the action, suspense, subterfuge and most of all, love. Rebecca Zanetti does what she does best and that’s writing a damn good story. The plot is exciting and the characters are so easily relatable, it makes the book that much more enjoyable. Many questions are answered in this book including the biggest question of them all, is Jory dead or alive? At the end of the book we are treated to an excerpt of the next installment of the series and it is there that you’ll find your answer.

    Another kick-ass read from Rebecca Zanetti!

    Good

    Good read about Nate, the third of the Dean's brothers. The overall storyline is good, though some parts (like a secret society mixed in the plot) were less developed and a bit lame. But the rest was engaging. We learn more about the human cloning experimental program and about Jory, the last of the Dean brothers, believed to have died. The book also included an excerpt from the next (last?) book in the series about Jory. Looking forward to it. Really good series!

    Another great story in the series. Can't wait til March 2015 to read the next story. It's best to read the series IN ORDER to avoid spoilers in each story.

    Nate and his brothers have been genetically engineered to be kil

    Nate and his brothers have been genetically engineered to be killing soldiers for the government, equipped with a computer chip set to detonate when they're no longer of any use to the government. When Nate meets Audrey and falls in love, he dreams of a life and family with her. When Audrey is forced to leave Nate, his world is shattered and his only goal is to escape the government along with his brothers. Later, when he's forced to go to Audrey for help in his efforts to keep his brothers alive, all hell breaks loose. Will he be able to keep Audrey and his brothers safe before the killing chips detonate?
    If you like your romance with a sci-fi twist, Blind Faith will be right up your alley. It's filled with romance, danger, and suspense with a paranormal flair. All of this, and the hot sex too, will leave your brain cells scorched before you've finished! I'm not usually one for science fiction, but I was delighted with Blind Faith. It's well written and my interest was caught and held from start to finish. I loved the characters and their interaction with each other. The brothers love and devotion for each other was immediately evident, as was the deep love of the hero and heroine, although they didn't want to admit their feelings to each other. I'll gladly recommend Blind Faith to everyone I know and I look forward to reading more from Ms. Zanetti!

    Genetically engineered, Nate Dean and his brothers escaped their creator but still not quite free. Their lives are still in his hands but their mission is to completely rid of their past ties and live as they wish. Nate Dean is desperate and will seek help from someone he once love even if they are from opposites sides of the spectrum.

    Audrey Madison works for the very mad man who is responsible for creating genetically engineered soldiers and to boot, her mother is his right hand man, aka, mad scientists.  She had fallen in love with one of the soldiers, Nate, some time ago and seeing him again brings back all the hurt she had gone through.  But she is stronger now and when faced to make hard decisions, she will pick right.

    Time has passed but Audrey and Nate’s feelings never changed.  Zanetti easily supported that making their union as smooth as if time apart never happened.  I enjoyed how easy it is for this couple to come together after some time of being apart.  Nate was determined to get close to Audrey, demand answers and take back what belongs to him.  I just love how Alpha he can be and man, he is hawwwt!!!

    I am very happy that Nate finally gets his own HEA.  As much as he denied it, it was what he’d always wanted and it is well deserved.  Zanetti did a great job with his story.  What I love most is how she weaved the action and suspense with the romance.  There was a good flow and never a dull moment.  I especially enjoyed when all the brothers are together.  And speaking of brothers…the whereabouts of their other brother, Jory, was finally revealed.  I’ll tell you this much, there will be another book. =)  I am excited to meet Jory and to find out how they will defeat their creator.

    Recommend this book to anyone who likes a good book

    This is my first book from this author, and I am very pleased I bought it and I'm about to order the rest of the books about the dean brothers. Ms. Zanetti really knows how to get readers attention. In my opinion she is a kick ass writer.

    I should start out by saying that I have not read the first two

    I should start out by saying that I have not read the first two books of the series. While I would not call this story stand alone I felt the author did a great job giving just enough information to understand the background so I very rarely felt lost.

    Audrey and Nate have a past. They parted 5 years ago and Nate’s back to find her having learned she’d been pregnant at the time he escaped. At the same time he thinks she has access to the codes that will deactivate the kill chips in his and his brothers’ spines. He finds her working for Senator Nash and cool and detached in a way she hadn’t been before. For her part, Audrey is dismayed to see Nate back. She been happy he escaped and coming back no risked the commander finding him again.

    I was totally ready to dislike Nate. Alpha jerks are not my thing. And while Nate did have that high handedness I despise, physically restraining Audrey to make her talk, he was also very sweet. There are several moments that grab his heart and he’s not afraid to show how they make him feel. He doesn’t shy away from the knowledge he loves her and will do anything to take care of her.

    Audrey is great too. She’s working as a double agent with the commander and Senator Nash to bring down the commander. This mission has controlled her whole life in the five years since she last saw Nate. In it she’ll shut down the commander’s experiments, but she also hopes to save mother, a woman who betrays Audrey in one of the worst possible ways and is not worthy of Audrey’s love.

    Together Audrey and Nate work. Matt and Shane appear for those missing them from their stories.

    I have some niggles. There’s a side story with another group out to take down the commander and at one point Audrey is kidnaped and saved by the commander. I couldn’t help but wonder were and the heck Nate was in all that. Also I was a bit jarred by the abrupt ending.

    Overall however I enjoyed the story and expect to pick up the other brothers’ tales so I can see how it started.

    4.5 stars for this amazing book!

    Nathan is the kind of attracting character that kept my attention from the first time I met him. His way of showing up on the most interesting times, a lot of them in disguise, makes him so mysterious I was dying to know more about him.

    This book proved he's so worthy of my and every reader interest. This is an emotional, full of action and funny story. Nathan and Audrey are so perfect for each other and after 5 years of being separated, the passion is stronger than ever. Also, looking for a way of surviving the chips implanted on the Gray brothers spines and taking down the Commander, is full of danger.

    This books made me cringe in fear, it made me laugh and cry... It's a fantastic book and I'm dying for the last one.

    This series just keeps getting better and better! My major complaint is that I have to wait an entire year for Jory's story. That's so not fair after putting that damn teaser chapter in the back of the book. Nate was such a kick-ass guy going all alpha to protect those he loved. I honestly don't have a favorite Dean brother considering they all pretty much rock. Each one has had a hard life and found their perfect other half and Audrey was Nate's perfect mate. I'm looking forward to seeing glimpses of them in the next book. I'd also love to see some of the other soliders that escaped pop up in future books. Love this series and hope more people will discover it.

    Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

    This book was sadly lacking. The first two books of this series were exceptional, this one – not so much. I don’t really know what was missing here, but something was. But, if you plan on reading the next book about the last brother, you’ll have to read this one.

    Oooh it keeps getting better and better! I love the Sins brother

    Oooh it keeps getting better and better! I love the Sins brothers SO much! Most of all, I am head over heels in love with Nate. I have been waiting and waiting for this story. I'm such a sucker for a second chance at love. Especially when the couple was forced apart by outside forces. With Audrey and Nate they have a lot to come to terms with. Hurt, betrayal, misunderstandings, lost opportunity, you name it and they've got it on their to-do list. Putting all of that aside this couple is explosive and magnetic together. In a series I always have that on character that I latch on to and become obsessed with learning their story. Nate was it for me. Matt may have been the glue of the brothers, but I think Nate took on more of a burden than anyone. He is willing to sacrifice everything for his family. Audrey knows that feeling all too well. Even when she's been tossed aside time and again by her mother she is faithful to a fault.

    Nate and Audrey's story picks up right around the time the second book left off. *Minor spoilers ahead as the books intertwine almost completely* The brother are still out to find the solution to turn off the kill switches that will have them turned to dust in a matter of weeks. Nate, believing that Audrey is still under the Commander's control, goes after her to use her as a pawn. However, things are not always like they seem. Audrey is forced to divulge heartbreaking secrets that alter Nate's reality and they are soon begrudgingly working together. Before they can even come to some sort of resolution and peace with their past, Audrey is betrayed and violated in one of the worst possible ways. The clock is running down, the pieces aren't adding up, and no one knows who to trust. 

    I'll have to warn you, Blind Faith got my heartbeat elevated and my breath hitching. It is non-stop action and heart-clenching scenes. Audrey and Nate have one of the toughest stories to tell. Most of it stems from their past, but with new developments they will have to lay more than just their lives on the line. Ms. Zanetti brought me from hurting to hopeful and back several times. All I have to say is you have to read the book. It may have come to a conclusion, it may have not. Those of you who have read it, will finally get the answer to that burning question that has been lingering throughout the series. I'm literally biting my fist right now because I *want* to talk about it, but I also don't want to spoil it. So alas, I will leave you with: It's freaking amazing and you should go devour the whole series!

    Happy Reading!

    This is an interesting series by Rebecca. There is a family that was created in a lab and has been made into the perfect soldiers. The Commander has complete control of them or so he thinks. He had their DNA tweaked and now they have highly developed powers. They have lost a brother and believe he is dead so they have escaped. The Commander has implanted a device in them to kill them if they don't return. Nathan, or Nate, has gotten his 2 brothers to safety now he needs to find secret codes to save them. He had an affair with The Commander's Doctor of Experiments daughter, Audrey. She was injured when they got away. Now they work together. The rest is spoilers so pick up your copy and read. Be warned it is hard to put down. You will soon be hooked on this series too. Enjoy!

    Buy. This. Book. Now. What more is there to say? Oh, all rig

    Buy. This. Book. Now.




    What more is there to say? Oh, all right. I'll say more about it than that. I absolutely LOVED this book. It's got me devastated that I have to wait almost a year to get to Jory's story because yes, I will say that much, as the brothers have long suspected, Jory is indeed alive. And what a story he's going to get! I can hardly wait.




    Audrey...wow. Poor, poor, Audrey. I loved her courage and her determination in the face of what she walked into, and her loyalty to her mother even as she acknowledged her mother was a very nice person. She lost a baby (Nate's) many years ago and then her mother pulls a rather nasty move on her.




    Nate...geez. The poor Gray brothers just have quite a load on them, don't they. I have to say I admired Nate for trying to handle things on his own. I nearly bawled when the other brothers showed up, showed him he didn't have to try to carry the load all on his own like he'd always tried to do.




    The furtherance of the overarching plot, trying to get the codes to deactivate the chips in their spines just is ramping up more and more with each book. They absolutely have to find the code now; they're down to only a couple of weeks before the chips blow and kill them. OMG, I can barely take it and Ms. Zanetti's making me wait a YEAR!




    Erm, yeah, I totally got into this book and I can't say enough good things about it. I loved the love between Nate and Audrey, and the sheer bravery all of the characters trying to bring down the secret group displayed. It's amazing. 
    One more thing - you never know completely who you can trust in this book. I will admit I got pulled in multiple directions, trying to figure out who was really bad, and who was just a double agent or whatever. Wow.
    Keep 'em coming, Ms. Zanetti!




    5 stars without a doubt.
