Review: Forgotten Sins (Sins Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

His Secrets Can Destroy Her

From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked by the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.

Her Love Can Save Him

Shane can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside—or who he even is—but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew—one who carries such a deadly secret?

Forgotten Sins is a pulse-pounding novel that romantic suspense lovers will thoroughly enjoy.  Rebecca Zanetti captivates the reader with compelling characters and a unique plot.

As an orphan, Josie Dean found her happily-ever-after, being a part of a family, when she married Shane Dean. But, two years later, Josie’s life is turned upside down when Shane leaves without a word. Josie relocates to start her life over, alone. Everything changes when her absentee husband resurfaces with amnesia. Upon seeing Josie, Shane believes in his heart that he truly loved Josie even though he    doesn’t remember why he left in the first place. Shane is unsure if it’s his job or Josie’s job as an accountant that has put her in danger, but he is determined to protect her even if she doesn’t want it. Josie is an independent and strong character who stands her ground with Shane, which I just loved. She won’t let Shane prevent her from figuring out why some of her clients’ books don’t add up. Shane’s character, on the other hand, is difficult to interpret at times because he is trained in all kinds of manipulation. So, you question whether his feelings toward Josie are sincere or not. As they work together, Shane slowly gets his memories back and realizes how much he hurt Josie, and his pain is palatable, which helps soften his rough edges. Their chemistry sizzles as Shane shows Josie a more take-charge attitude in the bedroom, which she enjoys immensely. Shane and Josie’s intimate scenes are intense and full of passion and fire.

Zanetti does a masterful job of building secondary characters—Matt, Nathan, and Jory—Shane’s brothers. She balances the Shane and Josie’s relations with brilliantly complex story lines, creating a page-turning thriller. I truly enjoyed getting to know each of the brothers throughout this story. But, what really had me glued to my e-reader were the jaw-dropping plot twists!

Forgotten Sins consummately blends all of the elements that got me hooked on series romantic suspense in the first place: a tight family of brothers, a strong leading lady, and a phenomenally intricate plot. Forgotten Sins is a spectacular beginning to the Sins Brothers series. The next book can’t arrive soon enough, I’m already clamoring to read Matt’s story.

I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
