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?

My Review
I had a great time with this book!  I have really enjoyed working my way through this series and have been really eager to read Jory’s story and to find out how everything would work out for the Dean brothers.  I would recommend reading this series in order if at all possible since some story arcs do carry over from book to book.  I thought that this was a wonderful conclusion to the series.
Jory hasn’t seen his brothers in years.  They have actually believed that he was dead and he did have a close call.  Since that close call, he has been kept at the facility under lock and key.  Piper has just recently met her father, the commander, and has taken a job with the organization that uses her skills.  She is tasked with trying to get control of the chips embedded in each of the Dean brother’s heads.   These chips are set to kill the brothers in a very short time.  
I liked Jory and Piper.  They had fantastic chemistry together and had quite a bit in common.  They seemed to understand each other right away and I liked that Piper took a chance and trusted Jory.  In addition to focusing on the romance between Jory and Piper, this book also had a big focus on all four brothers and their mission to deactivate the chips and gain control of their lives.  I really enjoyed seeing the brothers and their significant others working together to get the chance at a family that they have always wanted.
Karen White did a fantastic job with the narration.  I loved all of the voices that she used and never had any difficulty distinguishing which character was speaking.  I thought that she added a lot of excitement and emotion into the story.  I wanted to listen to this book for hours at a time and feel like the narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story.
I would recommend this story to others.  I really fell for the Dean brothers over the course of this series.  Each installment featured a wonderful romance and I loved how strong the bond was between the brothers.  I thought that this book wrapped the series up very nicely and I am looking forward to reading more of Rebecca Zanetti’s work very soon.
