Story Overview:

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?

My Review:

This series continues to wow me. I love these Gray brothers....and I need to say right here...please let Jory be alive so that there can be four of these books!!!

The Gray Brothers escaped from the lab where they were created five years ago. Unfortunately they escaped with time bombs in their spines which are just weeks away from killing all of them. As  a result, they are trying to track down one of the doctors responsible for the chips and that brings Matt to Charmed, Idaho where they think one of the doctors has fled to and taken over a new life. As part of his cover, Matt goes to work for the local bar and Laney.

Laney has her own past that she's running from and even though everything she's learned tells her not to trust Matt, she does anyway. She realizes very quickly that he's deadly, but senses a kindness in him and doesn't believe he'd ever harm her. In fact, she sees his incredible strength as a positive because it could just help her in the long run too. 

The fact is, both of these people are on the run and know that there is an eventual deadline in sight where everything will fall apart. Neither one is looking for or expecting forever. Right now is all they have and they plan to grasp it for the moment. 

It was an interesting story. None of the twists caught me by surprise...except for one at the VERY end which will play into book #3, rather than this one. But even though I saw all the twists coming, I still enjoyed reading every single moment of them. I really liked Laney and Matt together. The brothers are awesome, but Matt is the oldest and the most protective of the bunch. A protective alpha....yes, please! His character was awesome and I loved the way that Nate used that deep sense of responsibility to the brothers to keep Matt going. That says a lot about who he is at his core and I loved that about him. And Laney is a fabulous match to him. He's all about family and her dream is to have a family to care about. She's also going to be a terrific addition to the team that this family is becoming. She was just as mentally strong as Matt, even when she couldn't match him physically. She digs in and does what needs to be done and you have to admire that in a heroine. 

There was a teaser bit of the next book  in this, I'm already really intrigued. I cannot wait for it to come out. There is already so much more to that story lingering in the background. It's going to be fun to peel back the truths and realities of what's really going on.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
