A fight he must win . . .

They warned her that the tall, dark, and sexy black-ops soldier Jory Dean would try to win her over with his steel-gray eyes and deadly charm, but she won't be conned by this man they call a traitor.

Overview

A fight he must win . . .

Piper Oliver knows she can't trust him. They warned her that the tall, dark, and sexy black-ops soldier Jory Dean would try to win her over with his steel-gray eyes and deadly charm, but she won't be conned by this man they call a traitor. All she has to do is figure out the science necessary to save his life, and she's done. Something isn't adding up, though, and she won't rest until she uncovers the truth-even if it's buried in his deep, dangerous kiss.

A passion she can't resist . . .

Jory will do anything to reunite with and save his brothers-even kidnap the gorgeous woman who's working to deactivate the deadly chip in their spines. But the forces determined to destroy his family won't let them go so easily. Keeping Piper alive is more than he bargained for-and so is his burning desire for her. But with every second bringing him closer to certain death, can he afford to lose himself in her hot and willing embrace?

The wait for Jory's story is finally over and Rebecca Zanetti did not disappoint. As with the other books in this series, there is a steamy romance and plenty of action. The story opens with Jory locked up in a cell in one of the Commander's facilities. The Commander created Jory and his brothers as part of a science experiment, training them since they were born to be deadly soldiers. It has been two years since Jory was shot and last seen by his brothers. Jory is looking to escape to get back to his brothers, and will use whatever means necessary to achieve that goal. Piper is introduced to Jory as a computer genius who is there to take care of the kill chip that is implanted in him. Time is quickly running out to save Jory and his brothers; the kill chips need to be deactivated or they will all die. Piper has been told by the Commander that Jory has betrayed his country and that he is not to be trusted. She does not know the full story of the facility and the Commander. Piper tries to keep in mind that Jory is a traitor and just to get the job done, but she cannot help feeling like he is telling the truth and that there is more going on at the facility than meets the eye. This book could technically be read as a standalone. However, to really understand the evilness that is the Commander, to appreciate the reunion between Jory and his brothers, and to know the full back-story, I believe it is best to read the books in order. There are a lot of plot twists that readers who have been following the series will enjoy and the romance between Jory and Piper is very satisfying. I am saddened to see this series come to an end and hope there is a spin off in the future.

## FABULOUS. Loved this book. Piper and Jory had amazing chemistry. You could feel their connnection from day one. The story was fast paced and action packed. And thank you Rebecca for adding plenty of romance. Even though this book answered a lot of questions, is obvious the series is not over. I can't wait to read more. Highly recommended (best if books are read in order). 300 pages

The final book in the Sin series, Total Surrender, brings long lost brother Jory back into the fold.  Thought dead, Jory was being kept prisoner by the Commander.  While the other three brothers are still trying to figure out how to disable the kill chips, Jory is more worried that his has been damaged and can’t be reached wirelessly.  Enter master hacker Piper, the Commander’s daughter.  She’s determined that she’s going to solve the problem and resist the man her father’s convinced her is a traitor.  I really enjoyed Piper and Jory’s story, but missed the interactions among the brothers and other members of the family.  It takes far too long for them to be in the same place to work together to solve the problem.  As the family mantra has always been Never Along, this distance is a little odd.  The countdown clock hovers a little too closely, as well.  There were a few loose ends I would have liked more resolution to, as this is the last book in the series; though Zanetti has certainly left room to pick back up with these characters.  All in all, an acceptable end to a great series.  I recommend starting at the beginning and working your way through.

I have to say I. Love. Rebecca Zanetti's. Books!!! She has created two of the best paranormal worlds the hottest alpha males that I've had the pleasure of reading. The Sin Brothers better know as Matt, Shane, Nate and Jory Dean were created and raised as top fighting and killing soldiers and my god are they HOT!! For the last two years the brothers have feared that it was a good chance that Jory was dead after seeing a video tape of him being shot but they never gave up hope. After coming out of a two year comma Jory spends his days getting back into top shape and planning his escape. One day Piper Oliver walks in and states she's there to help him. Little does she know just how much she will truly do to help him. Piper was warned about Jory's charm and told that his deadly and a traitor but she's beginning to think things are not as they seem and that maybe just maybe Jory's the one who will save her. With the finale count down of the deadly chips set to kill the Dean brothers Jory needs to get to them anyway he can even if he has to kidnap the beautiful little hacker, Piper.  This is a awesome series and should be read in order. Not a stand a lone book.

Piper Oliver met Jory Dean when her father employed her to save his life. He had a chip implanted in his spine that is basically a ticking time bomb set to go off. After being nicked by a bullet, no one was certain if there was any way a computer could still talk to said chip. Piper, and her history of hacking, were certainly a good choice to figure it out. Jory had never been attracted to a woman the way he was Piper. He has such little time left before he will certainly die. Since there seems to be no repairing the chip - he is preparing himself for the worst. While working hard to free his brothers from the same fate. Piper cannot believe she is coming to trust a man her father told her is a criminal. Yet her information seems wrong or skewed. Jory seems to be telling her the truth, and it does not match what dear old dad has to say. Who can she trust? Lives are on the line. Jory knows that Pipers father is just using her and will probably sacrifice her for his idea of the greater good. He is trying to solve the mystery for everyone involved before his expiration date. Wow! What a great book! Good addition to the Sin Brothers series. This is book # 4, for those of you reading this amazing series. All of y our favorites are here from prior books, and it is not necessary to read them to enjoy this one. ***This ARC copy was given from Netgalley.com and its publisher for review purposes only.

I love this series! I came across it from a referral and got so hooked. I loved reading this book. I waited and waited for this book. Jory seemed like the most important even though he may not have been to someone else, but what a buildup she did during the other books. Jory is an amazing character and so he needed a special lady for him and WOW did he ever get one. I was so not expecting what happened in this book (I try not to read the previews too much, other than to find out if I will like it, but not enough to get too many details.) and so I was continually surprised and sitting on the edge the entire book. This book is so good, have I said that?!? I cannot get enough of these guys and their ladies. I was concerned with the way she might end this book but I can say I am so happy with the ending. I am hooked again, as I am every time I read one of these, please write more about these guys and their families.

I loved this series so much, and Jory and Piper were a great matchup to end the Dean brothers' story.  Each broth er was  awesome in some way, and I recommend the series to everyone.

I really loved this series and was sad to see it end. I hope the author writes a follow up so we can see how the "Dean" families are doing in the future.

Amazing story, a thrill ride against time and certain death, while fighting for their lives, to save the brothers... I was blown away by this story, and its original setup. The genetically enhanced brothers, made in a laboratory, meant to be killing machines, soldiers with no emotions, no human weaknesses, had higher sensitivity to all senses, abilities that went beyond understanding. Their loyalty, love, trust, and connection to each other was nothing short of amazing, mind blowing. Their love and protectiveness to the family they built was deep, they put the A into an alpha male. The attraction between Piper and Jory was immediate. Despite the deathly circumstances they were in, their feelings for each other grew and deepened. Her sass and stubbornness, with his bossiness and protective nature created many humorous scenes, with the geek in them bonding them on a different level. Their passion for each other was sensual, hot, and sexy. The desperation to keep the brothers alive touching. With fierce and brutal action, constant twists in the plot, and machination by the commander, the story moved fast, the clock ticking on the capsules in the Dean brother's spines. So much into this story, and the series, a true pearl to be found indeed. The beginning of the story took me a little time to get into it, but once the scene was set, the story took off, and I had to finish it in one sitting. Completely unique storyline, that just has to be experienced to grasp the idea behind this marvelous series ~ Five Spoons!

EXPLOSIVE! This is a fantastic finish to the Dean Brothers series. Fast action, HOT romance, witty dialog and a family at the center that readers love.  Great series, I recommend it often. A digital copy was provided to me by NetGalley for review, but my words are my own.

LOVED IT !! LOVED IT !! LOVED IT !! This is the best series I've read in a really long time. The plot was solid but with interesting sub plots. Every one of the characters is interesting and well written. I KNEW these guys and each of their different personalities because Rebecca Zanetti's writing made them clear to me.I hate that this is the conclusion of the series but she did leave a window open for more Sin Brother books in the future. I REALLY hope so!! Rebecca Zanetti
