Total Surrender (Sin Brothers #4) by Rebecca Zanetti

What it’s about
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?

 Release date: 3/31

Dorsey’s Review


5 Sinfully Sexy Sin Brothers Stars!

I've been hooked on this series since reading the first book Forgotten Sins!!  At the time, three of the brothers, Shane, Matt, and Nate, weren't sure if their youngest brother Jory was alive.  They had seen evidence of his death, a death they would not accept until they themselves prove beyond a doubt that he was dead.

Well, Jory is indeed alive, he's also isolated and held captive once again by the vile Dr. Madison and the evil Commander, who continue to use him as a test subject. There's also the issue of the kill chips in each of the brothers have implanted in their spines,  and time is running out before they are activated and the brothers are killed instantly.  Unfortunately, Jory's chip is damaged, so even if deactivated, he may not survive. Regardless of his own fate, Jory is determined to escape as he is the computer genius in the Grey family, he will stop at nothing to save his brothers!!

I’m a fucking killing machine, and you’re a sweet little hacker who likes to flirt with danger. Baby, I am danger.”

Piper Oliver is a brilliant computer programmer/hacker who's attempting to get Jory's kill-chip back online after it was damaged by a bullet. She's not entirely sure why the Commander has given her this assignment since she’s been told that Jory's a condemned prisoner and a traitor to the United States. Still, she’s drawn to Jory, he's an enigma, the attraction is so powerful it's overwhelming, but she's determined not to let his gorgeous grey eyes and seductive persona sway her from her duties to the Commander. Piper has her own agenda when it comes to the Commander and doesn't want to jeopardize her position....or the Commander. She has plenty of her own secrets, not to mention her heart to protect.


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.”

This was one wild ride; past secrets are brought to the light and lots of new secrets revealed, secrets that had me chanting, “OMG No Way”, out loud a few times!! Once again, there are many twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat, while you’re hoping and praying for a happily-ever-after.

I love this series and now that we have the last of the brother's books, there's an opportunity for a new spin-off series (keeping my fingers crossed). Hopefully, that will be Rebecca Zanetti's next series....please!!

Flashback Friday: Welcome to Temptation (Dempseys #1) by Jennifer Crusie


What it’s about
Sophie Dempsey is content living a quiet life filming wedding videos until an assignment brings her to Temptation, Ohio. From the moment she drive into town, she gets a bad feeling; Sophie is from the wrong side of the tracks and everything in Temptation is a little too right. And when she has a run-in with the town's unnervingly sexy mayor, Phineas Tucker, making a little movie turns out to be more than a little dangerous.

Yield to oncoming desire...

All Sophie wants to do is film the video and head home. All Phin wants to do is play pool with the police chief and keep things peaceful. They both get more than they bargained for when Sophie's video causes an uproar and the proper citizens of Temptation set out to shut them down.

Welcome to temptation...

As events spiral out of control, Sophie and Phin find themselves caught in a web of gossip, blackmail, adultery, murder, and really excellent sex. All hell breaks loose in Temptation as Sophie and Phin fall deeper and deeper in trouble...and in love.

 Karla’s Review
5 Stars!! My kind of crazy!

Welcome to Temptation, home of the flesh colored bullet shaped water tower, where morals and reputation are everything…until the Dempsey sisters come crashing into town. 

Meet Sophie Dempsey, film maker, nervous Nelly, surrogate mother to her sister and brother, and sexually unfulfilled. 

Meet Mayor Phineas Tucker, bookstore owner, town-hottie, single dad, and all too willing sexual fantasy fulfill-er!!
  
The documentary Sophie and her sister are filming is slowly turning into porn. Some of the residents are upset, while a few want to join the fun.

Welcome to Temptation, where lust and whole lot of crazy has taken over...

Great book…lots of laughs. The banter between Sophie and Phin just flowed, like a great improvised comedy routine. Very enjoyable mindless read!

What it’s about

To Chuito the apartment was a self-imposed prison for a lifetime of sins. To Alaine, the girl next door, it was salvation from her overbearing, religious father.

He was a devil.
She was an angel.

Two people who should’ve never met, let alone become friends, but it’s not until they give into the dangerous passion that’s been simmering under the surface for five years that things go to hell.

On the outside, Chuito ‘The Slayer’ Garcia is on top of the world.  He’s successful. He’s wealthy. He's a champion MMA fighter surrounded by friends who support him, but they don’t know what he was before he came to Garnet.

A gangster.
A thief.
An addict.
A murderer.

Now his past is churning up demons he can’t ignore. Chuito knows he needs to go back to Miami to end it, but there's something holding him back, a single temptation he can't resist before leaving.

Alaine.

She’s the one drug he can’t give up…even if it destroys them both.

“To me you’re coke. Fine. Smooth. Perfectly white. Very bad for me, but so fucking sexy I don’t give a shit. It’s worth going down for.” – Chuito Garcia

 Sneak Peek Snippet ~ Part One ~ Chapter One

Chapter One

Garnet County
October 2014

“Are you sure you don’t want to stay at my house tonight?”

Alaine looked at Edward in the driver’s seat, trying to summon up the desire to maybe give him what he wanted. It wasn’t in her. It was never in her. They’d tried it a few times, and it had been a profound and massive failure.

“No, thank you.” She looked back at the law office, staring at the second story and wishing for a hot shower and bed. Living above where she worked did have its advantages. “But I appreciate dinner. It was nice. A real Italian place right over in Mercy. Who’d have thought? I wonder if Romeo and Tino have tried it.”

Edward’s light eyes were narrowed. His shoulders were stiff, and he ran a hand through his blond hair and looked ahead for a long moment before he responded. “Have you thought any more about my suggestion?”

Alaine decided to play it stupid. “What suggestion?”

“Your father gave his blessing,” Edward reminded her for the hundredth time. “He wants you to get married, Alaine.”

Alaine fought not to roll her eyes. “If I did what my father told me, I’d have been married a long time ago.”

“You’re almost twenty-five and—”

“That’s not too old,” she snapped at him. “I just got my law degree and—”

“Why do you need a law degree?” Edward laughed as if it were ridiculous. “What the heck are you going to do with it once you start having children?”

“Jules has children,” Alaine reminded him. “And she still uses hers.”

“Jules Wellings, the woman who married into the mafia and owns that heathen place on Curry Road. That’s your great plan? To copy her?”

“It’s not heathen.”

“Your father has never approved of your friendship with her. All the fighters coming in are ruining this town, and she’s the cause of it. I thought you were done being rebellious.”

Alaine closed her eyes tiredly. She heard this enough from her father. “I think the Cellar does lots of good things. They do charity work and help at-risk youth. It’s a nice organization.”

“The fighting organization is nice?”

“I have to go now, Edward.” Alaine reached for the door handle. “Thank you for dinner.”

He clutched at her arm before she could get out. “You listen to me. I have tried to be very understanding with you. I’ve been willing to ignore all this independence you keep clinging to—”

“I don’t like you anymore,” Alaine said rather than argue. “I’m sorry, but I think maybe we should break up. This isn’t fair to you. It’s not fair to me either.”

Alaine used his stunned disbelief to open the door. She picked up her purse off the floor, feeling better already. She was tired of trying to please her father. She was never any good at it anyway. She had tried with Edward, because he was handsome and slightly more progressive than the other men on her father’s approved list of suitors, but this just was not going to work out.

She decided to walk around the building, and she was to the back door before Edward caught up to her. He grabbed her arm again. “Look, I’m sorry.”

“There’s nothing to be sorry for,” she argued. “We’re just not well suited.”

He snorted, as if he couldn’t believe what she was saying, and then gestured to the back door. “So what? You’re going up there to spread your legs for that spic instead of me?”

Alaine gasped and turned around, smacking him before she could think better of it. She was so shocked she hardly put her thoughts together to tell him exactly what she thought about it.

It turned out she didn’t have to.

The back door jerked open, and then Chuito was standing there, barefoot and shirtless in just a pair of jeans, showing off all his tattoos without an ounce of shame. As reigning UFC Heavyweight world champion, Chuito had a body that was a work of art, cut, honed, and dangerous. All his muscles tightened as if he was ready for a fight. His dark eyes were narrowed, and the fury pulsed off him so strongly Alaine actually shivered from it.

“I suggest you leave.” Chuito’s voice was low with menace. “Before this spic loses his temper. Trust me, cabrĂ³n, you don’t want that.”

“You can’t threaten me.” Edward huffed.

“I can,” Chuito assured him. “I just did.”

Alaine didn’t wait for Edward to make up his mind on the situation. She jerked her arm out of his hold when it loosened. She ducked underneath the ripped, corded muscles of Chuito’s biceps and then slipped her fingers in the belt loop at the back of his jeans.

“Come on,” she whispered and then touched the Puerto Rican flag tattoo at the back of his neck reassuringly. She swept her thumb over the word Boricua under it like a caress to let him know she liked him just as he was. “We broke up.”
