  by Rebecca Zanetti 
(March 31, 2015)

 Oh My God, What a wonderful end to a Series!!
I Fell In love with this series back in 2014 when I got Book 
One Forgotten Sins. and it has been one hell of a ride with 
the Dean Brothers. This book however Is my Favorite of the 
series. I have been waiting to read it sense I found out Jory 
Was still alive. Jory has literally been though hell and still 
finds love. I love Piper, she is an amazing character. Oh an 
be prepared for the shock of it when you find out who she is 
to the Commander. Piper is super intelligent and a hacker, 
she is there to try and save Jory. But as you know with the 
Commander, there is always an anterior motive behind what 
he dose. For instance Why dose he have her in the same 
room with him? Dose she really need to be near him to stop 
the chip from killing him? Just words of thought. There is 
another suprise for Jory in this book, when the Commander
send someone to help Piper. make sure to pay attention to 
the helper,
 you know how Rebecca loves to through a twist in the book. 
Now No more from me as I do not wish to spoil the story. 
If you have not got the other books in this series get 
them you will want to know the whole story.

I hope you enjoy this book as Much as I did.
If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review.
The Authors really like it when you do, they value your opinions too.

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?

“Madison? I have one week to live. For once, have a heart and let me live out my last days.” 
It was the closest he’d come to asking 
the brilliant scientist for anything after she’d started hitting on
 him when he’d reached puberty. She had a record for playing
 with cadets, and he’d kept his distance, as had his brothers, he was sure.

“I didn’t raise you to be a quitter. Don’t worry. I have a plan,” she said.
As usual, he’d have to work against her. He shoved a hand
 through his hair, which had begun to curl at his nape.

“What’s the plan?” If he was going to figure out a way to save 
his brothers, he had to get out of there.

“For one thing, I’d like to schedule you for another MRI. 
Your brain is functioning . . . abnormally.” 
She stared at his forehead as 
if she could see into his gray matter, her lip curling. “I’m 
having a PET scan set up for later today, also.”
Fuck, shit, and damn it all to hell. He couldn’t let her discover 
his special abilities, nor those of his brothers. They’d 
succeeded for years in hiding the very skills that had kept 
them alive. But ever since the coma, something new percolated in his mind. 
Something he apparently couldn’t hide now.

“You’ve been doing scans for months. Nothing is different.”
“The scans from last week are different.” She tapped a red 
fingernail against her lips.
Yeah. His best guess was that new paths had been forged in his 
brain during the coma, and a weird tingling in his lobe had begun 
 the previous week. Maybe it was his special abilities 
increasing in power, or maybe it was something new. Either 
way, he had to mask the truth.
Two heartbeats echoed from outside the room, so he tilted his 
head to hear better while trying to appear bored. Dr. Madison 
had no clue about his heightened senses or his extra abilities, 
and he needed to keep it that way.

A soldier entered first, followed by a woman in her 
mid-twenties, who slid out from behind him.

Jory’s breath caught in his throat. Exquisite  Jory’s breath 
caught in his throat. Exquisite. For once, that word could be 
applied accurately. She stood to about five foot six in black 
boots wearing a matching leather jacket. Light mocha-colored
 skin, curly black hair, and eyes greener than the most private 
parts of Ireland.
She took one look at him and stepped back.

He moved forward and flashed a smile that made her eyes 
widen. If he had to scare her to make her leave, he’d do it. 

Anybody seeing him in captivity would be killed by the 
commander after serving their purpose. So he forced sexual 
tension to filter through the room.

How he could do it, he wasn’t sure. Maybe pheromones and 
bodily heat waves, and the ability came easier now than it had before the coma. 
It was a hell of an advantage to use sometimes, 
and he ignored Madison’s quick intake of breath when he employed it.
“Is she for me?” he asked, forcing his gaze to run over the 
newcomer’s body and surprising himself when he hardened in
 response. God. He’d been on a mission and then in a coma for 
two years before spending time in captivity recuperating. 
When was the last time he’d gotten laid? Way too long ago.

He’d always liked women, although he’d never gotten close to 
one. Not really. They were either part of a mission or worked 
as doctors in the facility, and those certainly couldn’t be trusted.

This one was petite with delicate bone structure and clear, 
intelligent eyes. Whatever her purpose, she sure as hell didn’t 
belong in the dismal place. Hopefully she’d turn on her heel 
and get out since he’d leered at her.

Instead she lifted one eyebrow. Her face flushed. “So that’s him.”
Well, damn. Another angel with the heart of a demon. A pang 
 landed squarely in Jory’s chest. Beauty should never be evil. “Yeah, that’s me,”
 he murmured, dropping the sensual attack. 
“Who are you?”
She opened her mouth and shut it as Dr. Madison shook her 
head. “It doesn’t matter who she is,” Madison muttered. 
Grasping the woman’s arm, Madison led her over to a 
computer console. “Get to work, and remember the rules.”

The woman jerked free and stepped away from Madison. She 
eyed Madison like an opponent in a boxing ring—with 
wariness and determination.
Jory frowned, and his instincts started to hum. Was the woman 
a prisoner, like him? Maybe he could gain them both freedom,
 with her help. She was outside of the cage, now wasn’t she? He smiled.

Dr. Madison glanced back toward Jory, her gaze narrowing. 
“Leave her alone to work, and I won’t have you tranquilized
  again.” With that, she allowed the soldier to escort her from
  the room, and the door nicked shut behind her.

The woman sat at the console and turned toward him. 
“Piper. My name is Piper.” She eyed the partition. Her voice 
was smooth and sexy . . . feminine. She guarded her 
expression well. “They didn’t give me your name.”

Yeah. They wouldn’t have thought to give his name. “Jory.” 
He really liked the way her tight jeans hugged her curves, and 
he appreciated the intelligence sizzling in those spectacular 
eyes. She’d have to be smart to help him escape.

“Why are you here, Piper?”
She exhaled slowly and stretched out her fingers. 
“I’m here to save you, Jory.”
