"Have hope...I'd rather have you!"
This is somewhere between a four and a five star book. It was action-packed from chapter 1. Not a dull moment and it was everything I had been waiting for. What a way to close out a series, with a bang. I didn't think Rebecca Zanetti could pull off a second awesome series finale in such a short time. Marked was such a fitting ending to the Dark Protectors and Zanetti turns around a few months later to hit another home room with Jory's book.
This series cements Rebecca Zanetti as one of my favorite authors. Her stories deliver action, great characters and always a family connection that leads you to root for the main characters. Jory was just as fierce, loyal, strong and brave as his brothers. Piper was feisty, smart and perceptive. She was a really likable heroine. These two fit together and their attraction was awesome. They are my second favorite couple, after Shane & Josey. I loved how the conflict was resolved and I was impressed with the narrator. The voices worked and I think fans of the series will be pleased. I had no trouble following the action as the narrator kept a great pace.

This is one of those books where you really need to read the entire series to fully get just how great the story of these brothers is. That being said, I highly recommend you stop whatever you are doing right now and read (or listen) to every single book in the Sin Brothers series. There are 4 in all. Start at book 1 though. You really can't skip around on this one. It's like reading one long book broken down into 4 different brothers, by book. I can't speak highly enough about how great this book and the entire series is.
This was the fourth and final book in the series about four genetically engineered brothers and the man who wants to control them. I think it was the weakest of the lot, both in the romance department and the plotline. It’s not bad, just not as good as the others. The romance is the insta-love sort, and not really convincing.
There are some massive plot holes, for example:
• The H sends his exact geographic location to his brothers, even though he had spent hours wandering through the forest looking for shelter, and had no way of knowing his precise location.
• The brothers land a helicopter in the middle of a dense forest, during a violent storm. A forest contains trees. Lots of them. Helicopters do not fly in violent storms.
• H muses several times that he just needs access to a computer to deactivate kill chip in brothers, but when he escapes, he then sends h back into complex to find computer data, to deactive chips.
• The H and h on the run manage to escape bad guys. But we later find they both have trackers imbedded in their bodies. So why did the bad guys take so long to find them?
• Highly sensitive, sought after information is kept on a hard drive? Nobody does that anymore. Then the hard drive is shot but still works?
• The H gains secret entrance into a highly secure facility by hiding under a blanket in the back of the car. Really? Later on we find that a suburban housewife gains entrance to a secure facility by claiming to be selling yoghurt??!
• And the weirdest part – the brothers use a digger to dig up a coffin (under gunfire!) to rebury it elsewhere. They then travel with it in the helicopter. Am I the only listener wondered about how badly it must have smelt?
This book is the final in the series and it is a disappointing finish. As a stand alone it would be confusing so you probably do need to have read some of the previous books to understand the plot fully.
There were, however, some lovely touching moments between the brothers, and the overall plot and quality of the series was good. The ending chapters were decent apart from the unnecessary “does he really want me to stick around” musings by the h after the H had made it quite clear, several times, that he wanted a future with her. It was also a little annoying to have an obvious set-up for future books put into the last chapters.
I would definitely recommend the first book in the series. This one? Its ok, but I won't be listening to it again.
