5.0 out of 5 stars Soldier Boys
By Darren Ferris on December 19, 2016
BROKEN SOLDIER paints a quick but thorough portrait of five strong and diverse personalities working both independently and as a unit to successfully complete their mission. The main characters of Connor and Shawn are immediately catapulted to the forefront of the book. The dynamics between these men are explosive yet heart-wrenching. The love they feel for each other is put to the test when Shawn willingly goes undercover and becomes hooked on Heroin for the sole purpose of taking down a “Drug Lord” who just so happens to have an arsenal of nuclear weapons available for quick sale to the highest bidder.
As we see Shawn losing the fight against a Heroin addiction, his lover and teammate Connor (also undercover) monitors the sad situation – helpless to stop the horrific events that are unfolding. I read with amazement how Jamie blended a story of love and helplessness within the context of covert military operation. My heart was in my throat the entire time I devoured this book. Without giving too much away, allow me to say that the final portion of this book demonstrates how only unyielding love and patient support can make our broken soldier whole once again. This was an awesome read from start to finish. BROKEN SOLDIER was chocked full of the romantic suspense I have come to appreciate. Thank you, Jamie!
