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?
Piper and Jory?
Jonetta: I thought she had a great sense of humor and he really was a badass. They were great together, especially when she was debating whether to trust him or not.
Jennifer: I thought Piper was great for Jory. She helped bring out his emotions and helped him have a little fun in a dark world.
Who’s your daddy?
Jonetta: Didn’t see that coming either! Probably my biggest WTH moment in the story. I had to rewind and listen again.
Jennifer: I liked the reveal. After all one Dean brother falls for the bitch’s daughter. It was only fighting that this love connection happened.
There’s a new crazy in town
Jonetta: Like the Commander and his crew weren’t crazy enough? The Protect group may be worse as they’re fanatical. Loved it.
Jennifer: Yeah we got a peek at their crazy in the last novel but we got more crazy this time around. I felt like that story line could have gone a little longer.
Most exciting moment?
Jonetta: Gotta be dealing with Jory’s kill chip. Down to the wire much!
Jennifer: For me it was the death of a very bad man. FINALLY!
Who Shot Jory?!
Jennifer: OMG! That was a shocker. Well kind of. I did have it have figured it out but only right before it was revealed.
Jonetta: It was a WTH moment for me. I never saw it coming until the reveal.
Left Me Wondering
Jennifer: What about the mother of the year, the Protect group and the rest of the brothers? There’s potential for a spin off series.
Jonetta: Talk about leaving a huge door opening! More than potential for a spinoff. She left some nutty people out there in the world. We’re not quite done with the Deans, either. I’d read it!
Jennifer: Even though there were a few things left unanswered I thought Total Surrender was a nice end to the Sin Bothers series.
Jonetta: It put a nice period on most of the open storylines and that worked for me, too. And, I liked Jory’s closure.
About Karen White
Jonetta: She made all the characters distinctive. I particularly liked her interpretation of Pippa and Mommie Dearest.
Jennifer: Karen brought her A game again. She knows the right amount of sassy to bring to the heroines and roughness for the Dean boys.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
