A betrayal he couldn’t forget . . .
For Nate Dean, love is a four-letter word. As part of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be ruthless soldiers with an expiration date. They were loyal only to one another . . . until Nate laid eyes on the woman who stole his heart and blew his world apart. Now, years later, his family is still paying the price for his mistake. But as time runs out, there’s only one person who can save his family: the very woman Nate swore he’d never trust again.
A love she couldn’t deny . . .
The moment Audrey Madison spies Nate across a crowded ballroom, she can barely breathe. He’s just as undeniably sexy as she remembers, yet there’s an edge to him now that’s as irresistible as it is dangerous. When he asks for her help, Audrey can’t refuse. But she has secrets of her own–secrets that, if Nate ever discovers them, may cost them both their lives . . .
Blind Faith is everything a romantic suspense novel should be. Edgy, fast-paced and well-written. Blind Faith is the third book in a series of four, and I hadn’t read the previous two, which didn’t stop me enjoying it at all. In fact, I went back and bought the first two books, Forgotten Sins and Sweet Revenge, after reading this one, and am looking forward to the final book in the series.
The series follows the fight of four genetically modified super-soldiers to break free of the hold their creators have on them. If there is one complaint I have about this series is that the villains are a little too stereotypical, and the commander, the biggest villain of all, doesn’t have a lot of depth. But the romance and the action are really well done, and I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into this world of fast action, super-senses and watching the big, bad Dean brothers fall irrevocably in love with their women.
In Blind Faith, we have Nate Dean coming back for his first love, the daughter of one of the architects of the experiment that brought Nate and his brothers into the world. I really loved Audrey, and thought she and Nate were so good together. My only hesitation is over the details of her ‘betrayal’ which is never really spelled out, and reading the first two books in the series only muddied the waters further.
The conflict between these two is genuine, and not easily resolved, and although it seems there are way too many sub-plots in this, I enjoyed it anyway, and am looking forward to the last brother, Jory’s, story.
