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 . . .

MinnChica: When I cracked open the first in the Sin Brothers series, I knew that Zanetti has something special. Each book keeps getting better and better, answering questions while opening up even more. From the moment I got this book I couldn’t help but to open it up and start reading, first page to last! I loved Nate, loved Audrey. Love where the series is going, and am so so so excited for Jory’s book!!!

E: As this series has progressed not only have I been captivated by Zanetti’s writing, I have also been extremely pleased that a fellow pusher is enjoying an author I love. I have enjoyed everything about this premise from the genetic manipulation, the emotional bonds, the levels of secrecy and conspiracy, the strong women, and determination to never give up. Like MinnChica I have found that while each installment answers some questions and appears to bring things closer to a conclusion new twists and turns are unfolded. This was a second chance at love and wow was it an emotional hitter. I loved seeing how Audrey was just as strong as Nate despite her slightly more convention upbringing. I also enjoyed seeing a few more conspiracies and a new, perhaps, side of the ultimate bad-guy.

MinnChica: The romance in this book blew me away. I knew that Nate and Audrey had unfinished business when it came to their romance, but the level of feelings and angst and drama between these two was way more than I expected. I loved the fact that although they had a lot of drama between them, they also didn’t try to deny (too hard) that they still had some major feelings for one another. Nate and Audrey both were able to admit to themselves that the connection between them was real and tangible, and needed to be dealt with. I loved that about them both.

E: The romance was tender, sweet, painful, and raw all at once. From the flashbacks of their initial meeting, to their mutual sense of protectiveness, to even their drive for vengeance I thought Nate and Audrey were perfectly matched. Neither of them knew what it meant to give up even if it meant losing the other person’s feelings. I loved how both Audrey and Nate had plots against the Commander yet they were willing to use him to succeed. I also really liked how the brothers insisted on supporting each other. It spoke again to their deep bond and showed they had an immense capacity to care despite everything done to make them into unfeeling machines.

MinnChica: I love that the relationship between the brothers continues to progress with each book. I thought it was great the way they all supported each other, even when they didn’t want the others to meddle. I also liked that they had enough faith in one another to let one another handle each situation as they saw fit. It showcased just how much love and faith they had for each other, and their bond as brothers is one of my favorite aspects of this series as a while.

E: YES! I also liked how the heroines of previous installments maintained their sense of independence and strength. They were also prepared to go to battle to save their brother and his love. I think one of my favorite parts was when Audrey was alone with Matthew, the oldest of the Dean brothers and he made it clear exactly how he considered her part of the family regardless of the uncertainty of her relationship with Nate. My heart totally melted because it said so much about the family bond.

MinnChica: All in all, I thought the third book in the Sin Brothers series was so well done. I love the way this series keeps building on each book, the way the world keeps developing, and how Zanetti continues to keep the series fresh and interesting. I am so excited to see what happens with Jory’s story, especially since it will most likely be the culmination of the series as a whole. I think this series keeps getting better and better with each book.
I give Blind Faith an A-

E: This was such a great installment in the Sin Brothers series. Everything was upped; the tension, the stakes, the angst, the romance, and of course the shrinking timeline for the Dean brothers chance at survival. I also loved the developments in Jory’s story and situation. I think when that book comes out I will have to hole up without any interruptions because given the trend Zanetti has established I will have a hard time remembering to move let along breathe while reading.
I give Blind Faith an A

    So very excited about this one!

    My favorite thing in romantic suspense is the tension, kind of adds to everything going on. Oh and the action, yes I like that as well :D

    Romantic suspense has a plot, there’s an actual interesting (hopefully) story going on, and when the romance is part of the story, all the better!

    My favorite series featuring brothers is the Chesapeake Bay series featuring the Quinn brothers. Favorite thing about romantic suspense is the thrill and suspense of solving the mystery.

    I’ve enjoyed several series with brothers but my most recent favorite is Shiloh Walker’s Shadows and Secrets series – with the Bell brothers (and sister). Good review, I’m looking forward to this one!
