Total Surrender by Rebecca Zanetti
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 it it's buried in his deep, dangerous kiss.
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 to keep her. But with every second bringing him closer to certain death, can he afford to lose himself in her hot and willing embrace?
This book was everything I could have hoped for--sexy, smart, action-packed, fun and there was more than one scene I read with tears puddled in my eyes. I loved it from start to finish...
Piper is excited to finally meet her father and to be working for him on important national security issues. She is excellent with computers and is working to save an important asset. She is spunky and smart, but also intrigued by a man she meets through her job...she has been told that he is a traitor but something about him draws her like a moth to a flame.
Jory is working to get his body and mind in peak performance condition...after spending two years in a coma, he has been working for three months to figure out a plan to escape from the Commander's compound in Utah. He has always had special abilities, but since the coma his abilities have grown even more sensitive. He knows he has a matter of days before the chip embedded by his spine detonates, but he also knows it was damaged by one of the bullets that entered his body so chances are slim he can be saved. His brothers are another story--he will do everything he can to ensure they live out their lives.
Watching these two people with very different agendas come together was a hoot--it was not a smooth or easy path. There were some great secondary characters and all of the past brothers and their partners were back and the scenes between the brothers were once again some of my favorites. I don't want to give any of the twists and turns of this book away, so I'll end my review here with one last statement: it is hard to find a series where every entry is as strong as all of the books in the Sin Brothers have been.
