Dang. This book was fabulous!

Edge-of-your-seat enthralling, thrilling... FAN-FRICKIN’-TASTIC!

Sweet Revenge is the second book in Rebecca Zanetti’s Sins Brothers series and it picks up exactly where book one comes to a conclusion. The Dean brothers continue on the mission to destroy their creators and save their own lives. Time is running out. Who will be the left standing when time finally runs out?

Matt is a super sexy, strong, smoking hott sob. He is the oldest of the grey brothers. He is Protective and brave and a total dominant alpha male.

Holy Hell the things matt says to Laney. I think I just melted into a puddle....

"Spread your legs,” he whispered into her ear, the crass suggestion nearly throwing her into an early orgasm.
“I, ah...”
His other hand tethered in her hair and tugged her head to the side. Hot and firm, his lips traced her jugular

Action-packed, engaging, and riveting.

Sweet Revenge is the second installment of Sin Brothers series and it was way better than the first one. I must admit, I wasn't much impressed with Forgotten Sins (book 1) and I was quite sure that I wouldn't continue the series. But for some unknown reason, I just bought this book, so I thought since I've already had it, I might as well give it a try. Good thing I did, because it was such an amazing read, full of heart-stopping moments and scorching h

I was pretty taken with book one, only discovering this series, but book 2 was SO much better!
I was really looking forward to Matt'story and hot damn... I wasn't disappointed!
Rebecca Zanetti managed to deliver a freaking awesome suspense plot, entwined with some really HOT scenes! I especially loved that she kept with the original "plot" from book one, this book continues the Gray Brothers quest perfectly.

Now looking to read Nathan story, before book 4 releases!


“Ah, baby”—he dropped to one knee and released her hands—“I don’t need to use muscle to receive your submission.”

Well hot damn! How am I only discovering the awesome that is this author now? What a thrill ride. I'm a huge fan of a good romantic suspense, and this book had it all; action, suspense, and enough steam to set your ovaries on fire. Not to mention a captivating and enthralling story.

Damn these two were on fire!!! This is one hell of an explosively addictive series! It's got a little bit of everything and I am loving the hell out of it. I love a good romantic suspense series and this is really an adrenaline pumping one!! I have no nails left. I loved Shane but good God I think Matt and his dirty, alpha mouth just stole my heart!

I am really enjoying this series. I love the slight paranormal's nothing too over the top...more sci-fi, actually, with these genetically modified commando brothers rebelling against the evil secret government team that created them.

Matt is the oldest brother, and therefore has always felt responsible for his three younger siblings. The supposed death of the youngest brother, Jory, hit him very hard. Since Shane admitted to thinking he saw evidence that Jory was alive, Matt has been

The 2nd book in the Sins Brothers Series, and I am totally captivated.

Matt Dean and his three younger brothers were created and engineered with special skills by a secret government group. Having escaped from the compound, they are bent on revenge and finding a way to remove the chips that were implanted in their spinal cords, which are set to explode and kill them within the next few weeks.

I love it when a book keeps me at the edge of my seat, and the danger, excitement, and spicy romance contained in Sweet Revenge ticked all the right boxes for me! If you love romantic suspense like I do, you can’t go wrong with Rebecca Zanetti!

Whoa! What a ride this book was!

Sweet Revenge is the continuation of the Sin Brothers series and focuses on the oldest Gray brother, Matt.

The brothers are still on the hunt to find a way to deactivate the chips next to their spines. They have approximately two months left before the chips detonate, killing them.

Matt has arrived in Charmed, Idaho, a small town where he believes he's located the doctor responsible for implanting the chips. Here he meets Laney, a woman on the run

Great read. Well developed and likable characters, plenty to keep you interested

Continuation of the series but you don't need to read the first to understand what's going on. You'll catch on quickly. Well written and filled with delicious good stuff. A little OTT alpha at times, but eh, it still worked for me.
3.5 Better than I expected!

next, a confusing review

I haven't read the previous book and I had no idea what to expect from this book. I got used to the typical romance novel and that's what I thought I'll find here.

True, it is that typical romance read, but it also has a bit of a twist, it has something special. Maybe it's the enhanced soldier, maybe it's the great chemistry these two have, but it doesn't really matter, does it. The main thing is, it's worth reading, it might surprise you.

Jennifer and I are both weighing in on this story. I read it and she listened to it so you'll get more than just two story perspectives.

Quick summary
The story continues, this time with the eldest of the Dean brothers. Matt arrives in Charmed, Idaho, following a lead that points to this town where he might find one of the doctors who knows the key to disarming the chip imbedded in him and his brothers.

4 Stars.

Rebecca Zanetti is an author I have heard of, but The Sins Brothers Series are the first of her books I have read. Impressed is an understatement, that's for sure. I love a series, but a series about a family of over-protective, dominant, kick-ass, slightly different (genetically modified) brothers, well I am all over that!! I loved book one Forgotten Sins, which gave us Shane's story, and it was fast paced, full of twists and turns, and lot's of sexy alpha male, protecting his woman.

I loved this one as much as the first book Forgotten Sins !! I didn't think any of the Gray brothers could be as sinfully sexy as Shane....I was sooooo wrong!!!

Matt goes undercover in a bar and meets sweet, compassionate Laney. He and his brothers have narrowed down three doctors in the small town where La

I am totally loving this series and am hooked. I loved the first book and this one just made me love the Gray brothers even more. This story is full of suspense, action and a lotta lovin'-- Matt Dean is pure, primal Warrior and just a force to be reckoned with! And despite her past, I loved Lainey - spunk, her capacity to love and buck-up for her man. Can't wait for Blind Faith!!
Val Shameless ⚓️ Steamy Reads ⚓️
Wow, this is romantic suspense done right. Zanetti is a great writer and she has created a great series with some great characters here. The plot is compelling and the action is awesome - and most importantly, it's solid in the sense that the characters are not alphas and yet thwarted easily. They are true badass dudes who do badass things with badass moves.

Can't WAIT for Nate's story next!

Okay...either these are getting more predictable or I'm just that

Because I pretty much had this one figured out at every twist and turn...well except for one person being involved.

And IDK, is it just me or was this storyline somewhat similar to the first book?!?!? The same discussions regarding how bad of an idea it is to fall in love with the heroine....

There seem to be two concurring events in these books. The ongoing mission of the Brothers trying to locate the commander and get t

Matt Dean, is the oldest of the four brothers, and has always led and protected his brothers for as long as he can remember. Matt will do anything to save his brothers, and time is ticking. Each of them has chips in their backs, and if they don't get access to the correct codes, they will all die within six weeks. He has come to Charmed, Idaho to find a woman that is behind the making of the chips, but he will need to find her and extract any information he can gain. Recovering from a kn
I read this one right after Forgotten Sins and I'm glad that I felt absolutely no sense of repetitiveness. Sometimes when I read series about different couple, I felt like the author just recycle the same formula. That's not the case here.

I like the forward flow of the suspense department in regards to the Commander's story arc. After the ending in Book 1 with Shane's HEA, we have Matt's story. The brothers have six more weeks to live before the chip in their spine will detonate. Matt had been t
Second in the triology. Another hot alpha male. Another fragile seeming woman. This girl was actually a bit more fragile than the heroine in the last book. I liked her and the way she ran her bar sort of to the benefit of the local community. The hero was another nice alpha guy who fell head over heels. The story with the brothers becomes clearer with this book. Plenty of action and the over arching plot seems to be moving forward at a pretty good pace.

*Received an ARC.

I am a huge fan of Zanetti's mainly due to her other paranormal series. Love her writing, her characters are dream-worthy and fantastic and the world she creates whether paranormal or not - damn good!

Mattie is my least favorite brother out of the four. I LOVE Nate and cannot wait for his book which is next (the little teaser at the end? ACK. OMG *hyperventilates*) I love Shane's story and the big mystery brother Jory - well Im really, really interested in him.
