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 . . .
“Do you ever wish you had a second chance to meet someone again for the first time?” ~Unknown
Blind Faith by Rebecca Zanetti is the third book in her Sin Brothers series. I am such a huge fan of this series which is packed full of suspense, intrigue, action, romance, love and passion. All the books thus far have grabbed hold of me from start to finish and this third installment was no exception. I highly recommend that if you are new to this series that you commence reading the books right from the beginning as the overall story arc is explored and expanded upon in each installment. Four genetically engineered brothers who were created as part of a covert military experiment and who formed part of an elite group of government assassins, raised and molded into genetically altered killing machines with enhanced super human traits. The four brothers escaped their creators. Since their escape the mission is simple. Take down the monsters who fashioned them and save their own lives. They lust for revenge and time is running out. Two of the Dean brothers have now found love and have more at stake than ever. Who will be the left standing when time finally runs out?
Audrey Madison and Nate Dean share a past, one where young love and ideal hopes were shattered and the pair were torn apart. Nate was raised to survive and despite his connection to his brothers and their shared brotherly love, he mostly knew the ruthless and vicious touch of other soldiers and his creators. That is, until the day Audrey walked into his life and his heart started beating for the first time. Audrey is the daughter of Dr. Madison, a psychotic scientist devoted to advancing medical science with extreme and unethical experiments and one of the tormentors who made the Dean brothers’ time with the elite military group hell on earth. Nate and Audrey were introduced as an experiment but the love they shared was true, real and profound. When things ended between Nate and Audrey, they were both broken and Nate escaped and was left with a sense of betrayal that cut him to his core.
Five years later time is running out for the Dean brothers and the only person that Nate could turn to is the one woman who broke him and the person he swore he would never trust again. When Nate and Audrey come face to face once again, their lust and passion is ignited. However, can they overcome their past and embrace the love they once shared. Is it too late for second chances?
“She'd given her heart to Nate years ago, but no future existed for them. She had this moment, and she wanted to experience every second, no matter how quickly it ended.”
I absolutely loved Audrey despite her misplaced love for her bitch of a mother. She not only had to give up the only man she has ever loved but she has also had to overcome many obstacles in the last five years. Audrey is everything her psychotic mother is not – she is strong, nurturing, sweet, kind, brave, fiesty and she loves hard. She is working for Senator Nash, another character I absolutely fell hard for, with plans of her own. When Nate reappears in her life, completely throwing her off balance, there is no denying that she is still in love with the only person who has ever loved her unconditionally.
“No way in hell I’m letting you go this time,” he whispered.
I think Nate may just be my favorite Dean brother. I know, I know. It is so hard to pick. He was a fierce bundle of protectiveness who would stop at nothing to safeguard and defend those he loved. He may have tried to build up some uncaring walls when it came to Audrey but once he sees her again he is unable to stay emotionally detached. After all, she is the same woman that once made him feel whole and alive. Nate is on a mission to safe his brothers with no regard for how things will end for him. Having Audrey in his life once again completely tilts his world off its axis and for the first time Nate finds himself thinking how he will also save himself.
Rebecca Zanetti has once again written an enthralling story with twists and turns that will have you holding your breath and viciously reading, determined to find out what happens next. She also throws a passionate and sexy romance in the mix that will have you clutching your heart. The perfect balance. Plus, the sweet cherry on top of this all is the fact that we also get to catch up with Shane and Josie from book one and Matt and Laney from book two.
All in all, Blind Faith was an excellent installment to this fascinating series. Definitely give this series a go if you are a lover of the romantic suspense genre. The fourth and final book in this series, Total Surrender, is due out in 2015. Say what? 2015??? Rebecca Zanetti…if you have any mercy and compassion in that heart of yours, please please please write faster and give us this book a lot soon than 2015. I am pleading with you. On my knees. I leave it in your hands dear author hoping that you hear my desperate pleas. Sigh.
