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?
Jory, the long lost brother who they feared dead at the hands of the dreaded commander, has finally resurfaced after a gunshot wound landed him in a coma for two very long years. Now back in the hands of his childhood captors, he plots his escape in order to save his brothers from the kill chips implanted by their spines. Even though he knows his damaged chip may not be able to be turned off, he’s willing to try and save his brothers the same fate.
Daughter to the commander, Piper is charged with trying to hack into Jory’s chip in order to get it back online. Her father warned her that Jory may try to seduce her but he seems intent on turning her against the operation. Having only recently met her father, Piper just wants a family. To belong. It’s hard to swallow the truth Jory seems determined to sway her with.
Total Surrender was hands down my favorite book in this series! There was never a dull moment as Jory tried desperately to save his brothers and prove to Piper that he wasn’t what the commander had said he was. I loved the fact that these super strong men had no problems showing emotions with their baby brother. Their masculinity was not in question even as they cried at being reunited. It’s awesome to read about such strong characters who can still show such a range of emotion.
As a heroine Piper kicked ass. Zanetti loves to make her women capable, strong and useful and Piper was all three. She had to work through her thoughts on her own but she was overly smart and her hacker skills are on par to help these men she had grown to love. Though not physically strong her mental abilities and able-ness to help really set her apart as a character you can’t help but enjoy.
Total Surrender is an excellent book filled with pulse pounding, black ops excellence! This series is a must read for lovers of the romantic suspense genre!
I give Total Surrender by Rebecca Zanetti 4.50 stars!
