One Sexy Audiobook

FORGOTTEN SINS is a unique blend of romantic suspense, military thriller, and paranormal—to be honest, I’ve never listened to anything quite like it. I was reluctant to add this title to my to-be-read pile at first because I tend to stay away from straight-up contemporary, and the amnesia story line was a bit of a turn-off. However, Rebecca Zanetti’s beautiful writing style, and Karen White’s enchanting performance quickly sold me on the merits of this genre blending audiobook, and the smexy SIN BROTHERS definitely helped to further seal the deal. This high octave listen will have you staying up well past your bedtime, and the sex scenes will also ensure that your partner won’t be getting much sleep either.

The plot line of this novel is masterfully crafted; I enjoyed watching the various threads unfold, and I loved how just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, the author surprises you. I went from thinking that Shane’s reappearance was to blame—to suspecting Josie’s clients, coworkers, and kinda boyfriend—to government conspiracies, and back again. Zanetti does a superb job of keeping readers guessing up until the very end, and the way that it all comes together is exquisite. I found myself enjoying the amnesia angle way more than expected because it helped to add an extra level of mystery to the story, and then there’s the characters… wow! I’ve only just met the SIN BROTHERS, and already I find myself hard-pressed to pick a favourite.

Shane Dean is the epitome of alpha male; he’s inhumanly strong and fiercely loyal, but there’s also an underlying sweetness to him that’ll make your panties melt. I loved how in spite of his memory loss, his body and soul still recognized Josie as his. Their love for one another is rooted at such a basic level that it seemed almost instinctual at times which made the love scenes doubly explosive. It takes a strong heroine to hold her own against one of the SIN BROTHERS, and Josie was certainly up to the task. Her character is obviously struggling with abandonment issues, and I liked how she consistently disproved the brothers’ opinions of her “soft” nature by kicking butt.

This was my first experience with Karen White as a narrator, and I have to say that I was impressed. It took a couple of chapters for her to get the pacing down pat, but once she found her rhythm there was no stopping her! White’s tone mirrored the author’s writing to perfection; she successfully conveyed all of the characters’ emotions in any given scene, and also managed to capture the sexiness of Dean’s Southern twang. Needless to say, I enjoyed the narrator’s delivery, and will definitely be listening to SWEET REVENGE instead of reading it. What an outstanding performance!

FORGOTTEN SINS is one smexy audiobook! Great story, suspenseful plot, and the man-candy—oh, la la!

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"


As this action packed thrill a minute story starts to unfold you're drawn into the bitter-sweet romance between petite Accountant Jodie and her long lost husband of 2 yrs Shane who, along with his three brothers, have been genetically modified to become super elite soldiers with 'special abilities' (slight paranormal feel). Although suffering from amnesia as soon as Shane and Jodie meet the sexual chemistry is still there and, as next of kin, Jodie is responsible for him but she is unaware of Shane's background and doesn't realise just what she's letting through her door.... think Tom Cruise on steroids.

Then the action begins... with thrills, suspense, nail-biting twists, danger, great secondary characters, heartbreak, tension, evil villains from a secret Military Agency, sex and an intense emotional romance. Testosterone filled uber Alpha Shane is possessive, jealous, overbearing and obsessive but he's also gifted, funny, loving, protective and very sexy but with flashbacks of violence slowly returning his memory he knows he doesn't deserve Jodie but he just can't give her up. I had a love/hate relationship with Jodie as she was intelligent and strong one minute then sooo dumb the next but thankfully the storyline and Shane more than made up for it.

Worth a credit? It was total fantastical fiction but I found it thrilling, gripping, romantic and sexy and I couldn't stop listening from start to finish so YES very creditworthy and I'm looking forward to the next brother's story.
