Story Overview:
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?

My Review:

Aww, the last book in this series...so bittersweet, but wow...what a phenomenal end to the series. Throughout Jory has been the fourth brother who was lost...dead, but we finally found out in book #3 that wasn't the case. But knowing that he's been out there on his own for over 2 years, this book did not disappoint. I loved him and Piper together.

Piper...who has her own connections to the commander, but is just as much a geek and computer nerd as Jory. They were simply perfect together and I did really love her character. She's tough and so smart...I loved getting to watch her use her brain to figure out all the twists and turns because everyone in this book is using her to a certain extent, so she has to figure out who the good guys and bad guys are. 

And there are so many twists and turns in this book. I was with the family for Spring Break vacation while reading it, and they kept laughing at me as I gasped aloud several times while reading it. The book is non-stop action, but that doesn't interrupt the gorgeous sexy times between Piper and Jory. Wow, these two had some incredible chemistry. Simply put, the book is romantic suspense perfection. The romance worked for me, but I was definitely at the edge of my seat the entire book. In the midst of harrowing escapes, there is a countdown to when the chips in the brothers' spines detonate. And it literally comes down to the wire for Jory, whose chip has been damaged. 

And we can't talk about this final book without talking about the brothers. They grew up in incredibly harsh circumstances and the only way they survived, especially Jory, is by leaning and helping one another. They developed a deep, ingrained bond and although their definition of family is very different from most, it is so much stronger than most. For that, I loved the last few chapters of this book. These four men started out alone and have created their own family that is full and large and so freaking beautiful in the love within it. I loved that little view into their all-new world. It was gorgeous and the four men (and their women) have earned a little peace and relaxation within their new family unit. As a reader and lover of the series, I loved that aspect of this book!

This was the final book in the series, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that Rebecca Zanetti set it up so that this may not definitely be the final chapter. I love this world with it's super-soldiers who grew up without the traditional home setting and love. It creates some incredibly tough and angst-filled heroes and that makes for some great alpha heroes. I hope that she continues in this world, because there is still so much she could explore and I will be right there waiting in line to buy the books. 

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