I’m going to start this review by telling you how much I LOVE Connor and Shawn. Like…really, really love them. Like, wanting to have them come over for dinner just so I can look at them and listen to them talk, love.

I fell for them in “Broken Soldier”, and I was so excited to get this one. I read it from beginning to end in one shot. I didn’t get any sleep, but it was so, so, worth it. Jaime Lynn Miller has written another well detailed, and (obviously) well researched story with a ton of action, mystery, camaraderie, and romance. Oh, and it’s freaking sexy as well!

The blurb sums up the story pretty well, and I hate giving away spoilers, so I’ll be quick about this. Connor and Shawn had an awful experience in the first book, “Broken Soldier”. As the title says, they were broken, but they managed to become stronger in their relationship. They’re still partners at work as well in their personal lives. These guys warm my heart. They’re really just…there…for each other. They’re the epitome of what love is about…supporting your partner through EVERYTHING…not just the clean and pretty times, but through the dark, sad, horrifying times as well. Here, something awful happens to Connor (the blurb tells you, so I don’t really need to say what), and Shawn wants nothing but to comfort his man and keep him from sinking into a deep, dark hole. Along with that, they have to be on top of their game because this particular mission is extremely dangerous. There is an evil mastermind on the loose, along with illegal weapon sales and a formula that will turn biological weaponry on it’s ear. Top that off with Shawn’s ex lover and partner in the CIA (and a total a$$hole) coming into the operation.

Through it all, I rooted for Shawn and Connor. I was never too concerned about their relationship failing, but I was VERY concerned about their lives. Like…LOSING them. Jaime Lynn Miller can really spin a tale. I kept guessing right until the climax of the book. I was impressed with the action as well as the mystery. A lot of times in a romantic action/thriller novel, half of the story winds up getting lost. “Rogue Soldier” has the perfect balance.

As I said, I read the first book in the Shadow Unit series, and I definitely recommend you do as well. If you jump into this one, you won’t be able to truly grasp Shawn and Connor’s love for one another. Also, the other members of the Shadow Unit are introduced, and you should know who they are and what they do. Don’t worry, though, because it’s fantastic as well.

Please do yourself a favor and get both “Broken Soldier” and “Rogue Soldier” because they’re thoroughly enjoyable. I promise you won’t be sorry.

 

4 STARS for Broken Soldier!

Broken cover 6x9 BOOK 1

I loved this book! It was such a great read. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t stop reading until it was over. Jamie Lynn Miller grabbed me by my collar, and she dragged me through so many ups and downs, and so many heartbreaking scenes, and I had no choice but to go along for the ride.

I am not going to go into story details. The blurb sums it up perfectly. It’s no nonsense and concise. Instead, I’m going to just tell you how much I loved the main characters, Sergeant Connor Finley and Sergeant Shawn Weller. They are an established couple…partners on the job and in life. We don’t get to watch them fall in love, but we are given snippets of times they spent in the field. Their feelings for each other are obvious and deep. They’re also incredibly dedicated to their jobs at Shadow Unit. They’re willing to do some really harsh things for an assignment, and the assignment in “Broken Soldier” was HARSH. I admired them for this because, lord knows, I would NEVER do what was asked of them. No way. No how. Uh-uh! Watching Shawn doing what he had to do was heartbreaking. I cried quite a bit. Still, he refused to quit. Even when it got to be too much, he wanted to see it through to the very end. Speaking of heartbreaking, Connor…oh, Connor. His love for Shawn never wavers, even when he has to watch him in such a terrible predicament. He wanted to comfort him and pull him out of the assignment because it was killing him…and Shawn. That, to me, is more loving than any amount of hearts or flowers.

Shoot…the assignment wasn’t even the half of it. It was what came after. Shawn’s world was shattered by what he had to do, but Connor never felt less of him. He lovingly helped Shawn come back to himself, and it wasn’t pleasant. What I really liked was how Ms. Miller brought in flashbacks of things that Shawn and Connor had gone through together. Harrowing, funny, sexy…they really helped me to understand the relationship the men have.

I also wanted to point out, without spoilers, the action in “Broken Soldier”. It was VERY well written. It flowed smoothly. Lots of times, action scenes don’t feel quite…real? It is obvious Jaime Lynn Miller did her research, and that made for fantastic scenes. Violent, yes. Necessary to the plot? Yes. Also, it made me cheer for Shadow Unit and thrilled me when they finally brought down the bad guys.

I highly recommend “Broken Soldier”. One more thing. There is a warning in the blurb for a reason. Heed it. Some scenes are disturbing. They’re not over the top, but it wasn’t pretty. Shawn and Connor love each other so much, but it’s not all wine and roses, if you follow me. All in all, this is the start of what will certainly be a fantastic series. I’m excited to see where my men will go next. Read this one.
