Book review: Forgotten Sins (Sin Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti
His Secrets Can Destroy Her
From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked by the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.
Her Love Can Save Him
Shane can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside—or who he even is—but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew—one who carries such a deadly secret?
This is my first Rebecca Zanetti book. It's the first of two so far in a new series and is a twist on paranormal and romantic suspense. The book opens with a little backstory on the four Grey brothers. As young children they appear to be in a military camp but an unusual one where they are taught to kill and have enhanced mental and physical abilities. It's kill or be killed. They are stuck until they can find a way to escape. Years later they staged their escape and are trying to find answers to save their lives. They have a chip in their necks that if it is not reprogrammed in 3 months will terminate their lives. Shane the 2nd from the youngest of the four shows up in the town Josie is living in beat up with dead guys at the scene where he is found. He has no memory of who or what he is. That's not the only issue. Two years earlier he met and married Josie and a few months later he disappeared without a word. Josie was a orphan who was passed around and lost out on her best chance to be adopted so she's learned to cope with being alone. After Shane she was so broken hearted it was a fight to get back to what she feels is OK. In walks Shane and he demands her attention and makes her deal with him. He thinks someone is after him but he has no idea who and why since he can't remember. As small pieces of his memory comes back to him they have to fight off the bad guys and figure out all the mysteries they keep running into. You get a intro to two more of the brothers and a little nudge and who and what book two will be about. The story set up is a little unique and different although it reminds me of Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker series. I like the three brother we get to meet. I thought Josie was a little weak. She kept talking about how she could take care of herself but whenever anything happens she can't. Shane had taught her a little self defense in the brief time they had been together but the only person her skills seemed to work on pretty much was him. She had ideas but couldn't follow through. The author mentions her orphan upbringing to much for me. Overall it's a good introduction to the series.
