For Nate Dean, love is a four-letter word. As part of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be ruthless soldiers with an expiration date. They were loyal only to one another . . . until Nate laid eyes on the woman who stole his heart and blew his world apart. Now, years later, his family is still paying the price for his mistake. But as time runs out, there's only one person who can save his family: the very woman Nate swore he'd never trust again.Damn! Zanetti totally rocks some romantic suspense! Blind Faith...heart pounding...jaw dropping...make a girl swoon romance. Basically. It's a must read and bound to keep you up way past your bedtime.

The quick of it--and really this series is best read in order--is that Nate and his brothers were super soldiers created by some really fucked up people--including Audrey's mom--and since the day they were born their lives were bloody and violent. But they were finally able to escape and now they're racing against time to find a lost brother and stop kill switches that were implanted in them from going off in only a matter of weeks. And they're certain Audrey is key to getting all of the answers they need. Ahhhh!
These two! I really loved them both. They've had everything against them in life but still managed to turn into amazing people with good gentle hearts and that will do anything for the people they love and what's right.
This was about him and Audrey. So he brushed a finger along her arm. "You're beautiful."
She glanced down at her leg lying at an odd angle. "I'm damaged." <she'd had her leg broken badly years earlier>
He grinned. "We're all damaged, baby. You're still the most beautiful woman I've ever seen."
The romance is a little light but not in a bad way. The action is non-stop so there's no real time for flowers and wooing. But these two had known each other years ago and been in love before the Commander (the bad guy) ripped them apart and they never stopped loving each other. And they were great together. Tough, sweet, sexy. Heartbreaking at times and funny in others. There's a spot of heat and it's raw and powerful just like everything else between them.
Nate frowned and stood, leaning over for a better look. "How worried?"
The doctor shook her head. "Not that worried." She smiled at Audrey. "But definitely take it easy for the next couple of days."
"Bed rest?" Nate asked.
The doctor laughed. "No. You can do all normal activities, but no running marathons or digging ditches for a few days."
"Sex?" Audrey asked, fascinated by the red flush suddenly crossing Nate's face. She had never seen him blush.
"Sex is fine." The doctor helped Audrey pull down her shirt. "Just don't try to hang from the ceiling for a few days."
"Well, there went that idea." Audrey winked at Nate.
The suspense was surprising as always. Zanetti has a way of throwing curve balls you just never see coming. And it...is...amazing! You might *think* you know what's about to happen or who's behind everything, but, yeah,::snort:: you aren't even close. I fucking love that. It's rare for an author to really catch me by surprise but more than once I sat back with a 'oh shit!' flying across my lips.
It was nearing 2am when I finished Blind Faith and I was eyeing book 4 something fierce. Sleep be damned! I need more of the Dean bothers. Sleeps overrated, right? These guys...not so much. Grab the series. From suspense to romance to heat and humor. It's one hell of a ride.
