This was a great beginning to a new series. This first story had mystery and intrigue, strong characters and a great introduction to the secondary characters who will be featured in the next few books. I am looking forward to more.
This book gets no stars from me. I have never hated a book more in my life. I think my blood pressure rose dangerously high while reading it. Don’t buy it. Don’t borrow it. Don’t read it! If you’re a Maya Banks fan and you see it in the bookstore, scream and run away!
Sean Reilly thought he and his twin brother, Oliver, could walk away from their old life, but his old boss is holding his brother hostage, unless Sean will do one more job for him; and his boss’s rival, is literally holding a gun the Bailey’s head unless Sean betrays the man he knew all his life. Sean can’t choose between his twin and the woman he loves. He’s going to have to come up with something quick if he hopes to get them all out of there alive.
This story has been teased for the last two books. Levi Lazaro was a top agent for the NSA until he wife was murdered. After that he dropped off the radar with only one thought — to find the men who killed his wife and make them pay. This was a thrilling tale of a man who allows need for revenge gets derailed for a woman who makes him feel for the first time since his wife died.
This is the first book of the KGI series, but thankfully, not the first book that I read from that series. I found Abby to be unlikable and Kane to be unremarkable. Even knowing the characters as I do now, none stood our as interesting in this first story. For the first time I will say that if I had started here, I would not be following this series.
The final (?) story of the Sin Brothers series was certainly exciting. It was full of chase scenes, fights, gun fire and daring escapes. I’m sorry to see the end of these devoted brothers. The ending will be satisfying yet leaves a little wiggle room if Rebecca decides to toss in a follow up novel or novella to tie up some loose ends.
Wounded heroes are my favorite. Landon works for the government taking care of terrorist or other threats to the world. All he wants for himself is the one thing he knows he can’t have, the sweet little schoolteacher from Idaho.
I had high hopes for this story. With thoughts of my other favorite military series, I was intrigued by the interesting change of pace offered in this story. Our heroine was the soldier who goes into the jungles of Venezuela after her old boyfriend who was captured and held hostage. It just didn’t live up to my expectations.
[box style=”rounded” border=”full”]This series has taken over the Maya Banks KGI series as my favorite Action Romance. I was looking forward to this book in particular since Morgan and Noelle have such a volatile relationship that I had to know the history behind it. Great action, sad background.

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 […]
