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?

Rebecca Zanetti has blown me away again.  I could not put this book down!  Well, I didn’t want to put this book down.  Alas, real life kept interrupting my reading time.  Regardless, this story is amazing and hooked me from the start.

The connection between Laney and Matt is obvious from the very moment they lay eyes on each other.  Once they’re actually within touching distance to each other, the chemistry jumps off the pages.  Matt’s need to protect his brothers that has been with him his whole life has usually meant that other people fell by the wayside.  His protective instincts with Laney show that she’s different for him.  He keeps telling himself his brothers still come first, yet he makes decisions that aren’t necessarily the decisions he would have made before she came into his life. 

Laney is hiding something. She hasn’t had the easiest life, but she tends to keep her woes to herself even while wanting to know more about Matt and his past.  They both find themselves revealing more than they should and more than they ever have before.

This story is a page turner from the start, but about half way through it just becomes so intriguing it’s hard to put down.  Not only do we have the pasts of both Laney and Matt coming back to haunt them, there’s also the undeniable chemistry that is hitting them at every turn…even when they’re upset with one another.

I really adore these brothers and this author.  If you liked the first story in this series, Forgotten Sins, you’ll love this one.  It’s even better!
