Goodreads Blurb:
The One Man She Can’t Have

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.

The One Woman He Can’t Resist

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?

My Rating: 5/5 stars

My Review:
A fast paced thriller that will keep you up at night! Rebecca Zanetti certainly knows how to keep the reader on their toes. This is a fast paced, action packed book which kept me interested throughout. I was really looking foreword to reading this book and it did not disappoint at all. The author has managed to create a fantastic thriller with enough romance in it to keep just about any reader interested. Sweet Revenge is one of those books that stands out; that keeps you up at night desperate to find out what will happen next. Although this is the second book in the brilliant Sins Brothers series it can be read as a stand alone but the first one is just as good as this book so I would recommend you read them both in order. One of my favourite things about this book is the overall storyline and plot.

Matt is an enhanced human being along with his brothers. He is faster, has better hearing, quicker reflexes but most of all he is one of the deadliest things on the planet. Five years after escaping the Commanders clutches Matt is on a hunt to find the doctor who he believes is the reason for both him and his family’s impending deaths. Matt is willing to do anything to protect his brothers including killing anyone who gets in his way. But what happens when this deadly soldier comes in contact with sweet, innocent Laney his complete opposite. Explosions are about to happen as shocking discoveries are made. This is an action packed book that never slows down and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Laney is the opposite of Matt in every sense of the word which was to be the making of a steamy romance. Filled with drama and a sweet romance this is a thriller that you will finish before you feel you have even started. Shocking discoveries are made throughout and the culprit never seems to be who you would suspected. This fantastic book is full of twist and turns that will keep you reading right to the end.

“His gut clenched, and his heart thrummened. Love. The real kind, and from Laney. His head spun. He didn’t deserve her, but the idea of losing her sliced through him like a sword”

Matt where to begin! I loved him he was sweet, protective, demanding, hot and even funny at times. He was one of my favourite male characters and not just because he was seriously sexy. At no point during the book was I frustrated or annoyed with him. What’s a book without a whole lot of romance? And the love interest for today… Laney. I really liked Laney as a character even though Matt stole the show for me. Laney is a sweet barmaid who is always helping others in her small town but she is keeping secrets that threaten to tare her and Matt apart before they have even begun. I loved Matt and Laney as a couple they were complete opposites but they brought out the best in each other. Laney didn’t let Matt boss her around no matter how hard he tried which showed her strength and independence. All of the characters the author created were believable but most importantly likeable.

“They didn’t have forever. They might not even have past the hour. But he wanted her to remember him until her last breath, and if he had his way, she’d live for decades after this”

Overall this book is an exciting action packed thriller that jumps straight into the story and stays with you long after you have finished. Rebecca Zanetti is a brilliant author and I can’t wait to read what happens next to Matt and his brothers after the ending of this wonderful book. I would definitely recommend this book as I thought it was a fantastic read.
