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 bedsideβ€”or who he even isβ€”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 knewβ€”one who carries such a deadly secret?

First Thought when Finished: OMG Forgotten Sins by Rebecca Zanetti pulled me immediately and never let me go! Action, Suspense, and a dash of romance–great combo!

Story Thoughts: Holy Romantic Suspense Batman–this was a great mix of Suspense/Thriller/Romance. In fact, I would even suggest it to some straight suspense readers that I know because the romance was really balanced with the action. I liked the idea of a secret program (evil of course) that trained men so well that they were equipped to fight back. This truly is one of those novels where you get some answers but are compelled to read on because the overall story arc hasn’t played out to the end. No cliffhanger but you are left with a sense of intrigue that will have you counting down to the next book.

Character Thoughts: Alright, first let me address Josie. I think she had a few moments in the beginning of TSTL (too stupid to live). She was most definitely the kind of fish that would swim upstream instead of going with the flow. That being said, she was pretty self-sufficient and I liked her spunk! Shane is who I fell for hard. Even in his memory lapsed brain, I loved his alphaness coupled with his tenderness. He truly made me swoon and I think maybe Josie’s headstrong behavior (aka the ability to get into life threatening situations) is something he needed in a woman. Someone a little fearless but still needed a hero!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: Karen White /Length: 11 hrs and 48 mins

Karen White was really good at catching the “tone” of Forgotten Sins. She had the right pacing for the thrilling parts and knew when to slow it down a pinch for the heart to hearts! I will be continuing this on audio even if I have to wait πŸ™‚

Final Thoughts: Next one PLEASE!

  1. So glad you liked it, Felicia. I agree, I think it’s a good crossover for people who might not always pick up a romantic suspense novel (I appreciated the thriller tone minus the gore, myself!)
    I’ve already recorded Matt’s story, Sweet Revenge so that should be out soonish. Nate’s story will have to wait awhile, though, as they are lining the audiobook release up with the paperback release. (I’m kinda sad because Nate’s my favorite brother πŸ˜‰ )

  2. Oh hey we must have been listening to this at about the same time! Review twinsies πŸ™‚ I hope the sequel comes out on audio soon! I totally agree with your thoughts on Josie (and Shane, swoon!)

  3. Originally, this series wasn’t even on my radar, so I’m SUPER happy that Karen White submitted a review request, because this audiobook was love at first listen. I’m making book 2 a priority!

    I love audio books but I haven’t tried any of Zanetti’s titles yet. I love d your review and may just have to invest a credit! Thanks so much!

  5. LOL Felicia! We were almost review twins, I almost posted this review today, but I’m posting it tomorrow. I listened to the book a while back, I imagine we got it at the same time from the publisher, and I was waiting for the release day which I though it was next week..LOL I had to finish the audio sample and everything yesterday when I saw it already published on audible..LOl
    Anyway, I totally agree with your review, I really enjoyed this one, in fact, I’m more open to Romantic suspense since I listened to this one.

  6. Great review! I have had this one on my list for a little while – it sounds really good! I love a good mix of suspense and romance.
