A fight he must win...
Piper Oliver knows she can't trust him. They warned her that the tall, dark, and sexy black-ops soldier Jory Dean would try to win her over with his steel-gray eyes and deadly charm, but she won't be conned by this man they call a traitor. All she has to do is figure out the science necessary to save his life, and she's done. Something isn't adding up, though, and she won't rest until she uncovers the truth-even if it's buried in his deep, dangerous kiss.
A passion she can't resist...
Jory will do anything to reunite with and save his brothers-even kidnap the gorgeous woman who's working to deactivate the deadly chip in their spines. But the forces determined to destroy his family won't let them go so easily. Keeping Piper alive is more than he bargained for-and so is his burning desire for her. But with every second bringing him closer to certain death, can he afford to lose himself in her hot and willing embrace?
The Dean Brothers: “Never alone.”
4.5 badass, action packed stars
I have been eagerly waiting for the release of this book – the final in the Sin Brothers series, and the conclusion to an absolutely epic story full of action, adventure, suspense and, of course, romance.
The Dean brothers (as they call themselves) were genetically engineered to be super soldiers. Conceived in a laboratory, trained to be hard core killers, and possessing heightened senses and abilities that only enhance their skills, the four boys clung together, doing everything they could to survive while under the control of a sociopathic Commander. The four boys blew up the compound and escaped five years ago, and ever since they have been fighting to protect each other and secure a safe future for them and their loved ones.
Although each of the books focuses on a different brother, it is essential to read them in order. There is an overarching storyline that runs through the whole series, with each book gaining momentum towards this, the final instalment. And it gave me everything I wanted!
Jory, the youngest of the brothers has, up until now, been presumed dead. Instead he has been through hell, and is now being held captive by the Commander at yet another top secret compound. He has regained his strength, completely focussed and motivated by the driving need to get back to his family and save his brothers from a ticking time bomb that threatens all of their lives.
Piper is an expert hacker. She has been brought in by the Commander in an attempt to see if she can repair Jory’s “kill chip”- a device planted near the spines of each of the brothers that is set to kill them in 7 days if the correct codes can’t be found to disable and remove them. Pressure!
Jory and Piper’s beginning is turbulent. Piper believes he is a traitor and a criminal and has been warned about his powers of persuasion so she does her best to ignore him. While Jory brushes aside his immediate attraction to her, seeing her as not only the way to help him with his chip, but also as his way out of his imprisonment. Add to that the mad chemistry between them, and it’s all on!
“I’m a fucking killing machine, and you’re a sweet little hacker who likes to flirt with danger. Baby, I am danger.”
Piper has her own motivations for working at the compound, and when things don’t seem to add up she has to dig deeper to find out what she is actually involved in. And as she slowly starts to learn more, she finds her very life in danger, and her head and her heart are constantly battling as she tries to uncover the truth. And the more time she spends with Jory, the clearer that battle becomes.
Jory gripped her chin, turning her to face him. His jaw hardened, and he tried to remain gentle. “Time to make a choice, sweetheart. Please. Choose me.”
The romance builds really nicely and even though the story is fast paced, it still feels like there is a nice build up, with plenty of passion and steamy time, as well as the development of true feelings. And atching the hardass warrior fall was a total swoonfest!
“I love you, Piper. All of you. The smart, the sweet, the lost. Everything you are and whoever you’ll eventually become.”
There is so much going on in this book, and the romance is just a part of it. I don’t want to say too much about it because the story twists and turns with some very unexpected surprises along the way, but once again this is a wild ride from start to finish.
As a fan of this series from the very beginning though, I will say that this book gave me everything that I wanted – at one point I was in tears over the awesomeness of it all The reunion between the brothers was absolute perfection!. I love that of the characters from the previous books are all very much a part of the story and they haven’t lost any of their badass-ness – in fact, it’s probably more present in this book than in any of the others as the bond between them and the lengths they are willing to go to for each other is once again shown in heart-clenching, yet still badass, ‘us-against-the-world’ fashion.
“No more fucking good-byes. I am so done with that shit and with all of us sacrificing our lives. We’re fucking done, and we’ll all fucking live. The first guy who tells me good-bye ever again, even if he’s just going to the fucking grocery store, gets a fist planted in his fucking face.”
I also love that we get to check in on each of the couples from the previous books. The Dean boys are a protective bunch, and I love the way they are with their girls, and it was great to see each of them still going strong. But the girls are also strong, they give back just as good as they get, and I really like that.
“I’ll do my best to get back to you.”
“I’m coming with you.” …
…“Yes. I’m the hero of my own damn story … Protect me all you want, but this once, I’m needed with you.”
Fast paced and action packed with a lot of heart, this is a great finish to the series. I was sucked in from start to finish and was very satisfied with how it all ended. But there is also definitely potential there for more and if there is, I’ll be diving right in.
I loved it – 4.5 stars.
