I love this series of books. It is the second book in the series and you need to read the first one to understand this book. There is a lot of action in this book. Great love story that is tied into another sub plot. I can not wait for the next book to come out!

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2 REVIEW:  Matt Dean has always protected those he love. He stood up for his brothers when he was little. He fight to keep them safe from everything and everyone. But failing his youngest brother has been the hardest then he has ever had to go through. But he still has two brothers left that need him. The need him to complete his latest mission in order to save them all. But oh the wicked twists of fate are about to bring dear old Mattie to his knees.  Laney is a woman who knows that it is just a matter of time before he past catches up with her. A past that she doesn’t ever want to relive. But when a tall, dark and very dangerous man finds his way into her life, for just one moment she let’s her guard down. In that moment everything changes, and not all of the changes are for the better.  Loved this books. Loved Mattie & Laney. Loved that Emery.... well you will just have to read and find that out. This was a great second book in Rebecca’s Sins Brothers series. I am so looking forward to Nate’s book and uncovering all the dark secrets that this brother holds.  If you have not read book 1 Forgotten Sins, I would highly suggest that you do. While I think you could read Sweet Revenge and be okay. I really think that you need to know the Gray Brother’s history and to do that you need to read Forgotten Sins.  Disclaimer:  I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley & Forever (Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

This was the second one in the series and I liked this one better than the first.  I truly enjoy these characters and can't wait until the final book due out next year.  If I had to give any criticism, it would be that the relationship started out way too fast to be realistic and believable, but even then, the characters and their story had me from the very beginning.  I love how the books in these series have a perfect balance of romance, suspense, mystery, action and even bromance.  Truly a great read, very different from contemporary romance these days and it kinda had a "Bourne Identity feel to it except different and more romance than action.  Great job with this series, Ms. Zanetti!

I like the premise of this series. There are 4 brothers who have been enhanced by "The Commander". All their senses are multiplied and they are the elite soldiers. They are looking for their freedom. Rebecca must have done lots of research for all her military tactics in her books. This is the first time I have read one of Rebecca's books. I will be looking for from her. As I got farther into the book I found that as much as I liked the book I had to walk away to regather myself. That's how I know it's a good story. I hope you try this series. You won't regret it. I didn't!

O. M. G. I loved this book. I loved Forgotten Sin so much I didn't think this book could beat it but I was so wrong. I want Matt he was so hot and so alpha. I need more. *sigh*. Matt and Laney have great chemistry and are a perfect match. Rebecca Zanetti out did herself. If you have not read her yet you are truly missing out on some great books. I've read all of them and she is a must buy for me.

## Awesome. That's how I would describe this book. The story is suspenseful, intriguing, and romantic all in one. Sure the hero had some issues and likes to boss the heroine around. But he always tries to protect her. And the heroine was perfect. Smart, beautiful and sassy. Just how I like them. This is obviously a series but it stood alone just fine. I will be seeking out Shane's story. Good read, appx. 330 pages.

The second of the Sin series, Sweet Revenge, picks up several weeks after the first ended.  The kill chips are still set to detonate and little progress has been made on finding the third brother.  In an effort to find the doctor that implanted the chips, Matt heads to Charmed, Idaho, where he meets Laney Jacobs.  Not long after Matt arrives a serial killer starts targeting the single women in town.  Though initially the serial killer storyline seems to detract from the tension surrounding the brother’s fight to remain alive, it ends up tying together in Zanetti’s capable hands.  Matt soon discovers that Laney is not quite who she seems, though in the end that doesn’t seem to matter as their attraction takes over.  I really enjoyed Laney and Matt and can’t wait to see where the next book goes.

It started out as a normal day for Midna.<p>The same, boring routine she had. Get up. Get dressed. Eat breakfast. Brush hair and teeth. Be bored.<p>Midna sighed, leaning against the wall of the hallway as she waited for her mother, Queen Elizabeth of the Twilight Elves, to finish getting dressed.<p>Elizabeth finally came out.<p>"lt's about time." Midna muttered.<p>"Midna!" Elizabeth scolded. "Is that how you talk to you mother?"<p>"Sorry..." Midna mumbled.<p>There was suddenly a commotion outside.<p>There was a yell, and then loud crash.<p>Elizabeth grabbed Midna's arm and pulled her down to the ground, just as the wall exploded.<p>Stone was scattered everywhere, and a large hunk smashed into Elizabeth's skull.<p>Elizabeth cried out, but was imediatly cut off.<p>Midna screamed, more from terror than pain. She could hear Mai in the other room, screaming in agony.<p>Midna stood and dashed down the hall, ducking under pieces of stone that were falling.<p>When she reached Mai, she found a terrible sight.<p>Ganondorf, her archnemisis, was standing over Mai's and Grant's burnt, dead bodies. He was advancing on her father, King Johnson. Her father's arm was dislocated, and he was weak.<p>Before Midna could stop him, Ganondorf beheaded her father. He then turned and punched Midna, knocking her unconcious.<p> &nbsp; * &nbsp; * &nbsp; *<p>When Midna woke up, she knew she was the only survivor.<p>Dark smoke filled the air, and made it hard to breathe. Midna coughed several times, struggling to sit up.<p>She saw Ganondorf off in the distance. Anger suddenly surged through her.<p>She wanted revenge.<p>This is her story. This is, Midna's Revenge.<p>&nbsp;<p>This is my first fanfic! Please give me character applications, hough l may not use them. Please give me your rating amd give me tips and your opinions.

I was an avid fan of this series after reading book 1, and that has firmly been cemented after reading Sweet Revenge. This author really knows how to write an action-packed romance with plenty of suspense and plenty of action, in and out of the bedroom. I just love these brothers and as their story keeps unfolding, I am becoming more and more invested in their survival and, hopefully their happy endings. Matt is the eldest brother, the 'protector' of the family, the one who always stood up for his brothers and took the brunt of the punishment dished out by the Commander, all to keep them alive and together. His loyalty to his family is unquestioned, only too willing to sacrifice himself so that those he loves can live. He is supremely alpha, the ultimate soldier, demanding and able to take charge and keep everyone focused, always upholding their family oath of 'never alone'. He also has a vulnerable, gentler side and this only confirmed my belief that an alpha man who shows his vulnerability and says what is in his heart, makes him one of the most attractive males in existence. But this man carries his own fair share of guilt about his younger brother Jory, and the quest for answers and ultimately revenge is what drives him day and night. If you can't tell already, I loved Matt for all of the above and then some. These brothers have captured a piece of my heart with their history and the way they love so hard and so completely. Now, as for Laney. She is living a seemingly quiet life in a little town called Charmed, hoping with each day that she is moving further and further away from her history and the secrets she is keeping. She is feisty, sassy, independent and strong. Her gentle and caring nature has endeared her to the other inhabitants of the town, and she feels she finally has some semblance of the family she missed out on as a child. Laney is a character that you can easily relate to, and when her back story comes out, she is only made more endearing to the reader. I loved her strength of character, the way she fought for those she loved, her willingness to show her own vulnerability when she connects with Matt, and her total bad-ass actions in the last part of the book. She really won me over. As eluded to in the synopsis, Laney is hiding from her own demons, ones that are connected to Matt in the most deadly of ways, but the attraction between them is too hard to ignore. Their sexual chemistry heated up my reader, their steamy love scenes amongst some of my favourites and I loved the way they communicated and connected with each other. They were flirty and playful, hot and sexy, sweet and funny, intense and passionate. Once again this author has delivered and ticked all the boxes that I look for in a romantic suspense book. The action scenes had me on the edge of my seat, with heart pounding twists and turns, full of mystery and intrigue. This book flowed effortlessly from Forgotten Sins and there was no need to go back and refresh my memory. The continuation of the overall story gave us more of the brothers past and more of what is to come. Shane, Nate and Josie made their appearances again which I loved and I cannot wait to read more about this family.

This series is getting more exciting because of the time limit. I love that the women are strong and sassy. Matt and Laney are perfect for each other. Looking forward to Nate's story. Oh baby! :):)

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I love all of Rebecca&rsquo;s books and Sweet Revenge is no different.  I loved both Matt and Laney.  I love that even though Matt is on a mission, he&rsquo;s still willing to follow his heart.  I also admired Laney and that she&rsquo;s willing to put herself on the line to help others.  The horrors these two were put through in the past just broke my heart.  I loved that this book kept me guessing till the very end about who exactly Matt was after.  I knew he was looking for a specific doctor, but just who that doctor is was kept a mystery throughout.  I also love that the Sin brothers are willing to give up everything for their women.  That just makes me want to swoon.  I&rsquo;m so looking forward to Nate&rsquo;s book.  I can&rsquo;t wait to read his story.  Overall this is a very fast-paced, well-written story.  It has suspense, action, adventure, and romance. 4-Bombs Reviewed by Tracy
