5 STARS for Broken Soldier!

Broken cover 6x9 BOOK 1
5.0 out of 5 stars  Soldier Boys
By Darren Ferris on December 19, 2016
Format: Paperback

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!

4 STARS for His Fragile Heart!

Many thanks to Crystal’s Many Reviewers!

“This was a really short and sweet read for me.  It wasn’t anything over the top, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit.
Nathan and Justin were both great characters that it was easy to connect with them both.  I could feel the pain that Nathan was going through.  It was just horrible!  Justin’s character was one that was a complete opposite – he was full of life and happy go lucky.
Being able to follow along as the relationship between Nathan and Justin was fun.  The story overall was a sweet read that while it had a little bit of suspense and drama it was still good.  I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a sweet read and a happy ending.”

5 STARS for Rogue Soldier!

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.

4.0 out of 5 starsGreat Start to a Series!

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.

REVIEW:

Shawn Weller and Conner Finley have recovered from their ordeal in Kuala Lumpur. They spent a month healing both their physical as well as their emotional wounds, now they’re closer and stronger than ever!

Shadow Unit have just finished an op in the Kashmir region of Northern India that didn’t end well. Conner is having trouble deciding whether he’ll accept a promotion that will see him leaving Shadow Unit for another called Ghost Squad. Taking the promotion would be the end of his relationship with Shawn since Shawn hasn’t taken the news as well as he’d hoped. In fact, Shawn gave Conner an ultimatum; the promotion or me! Just as Conner is thinking he’s made up his mind they get the call to join the CIA on a joint operation, the only problem with this is the lead operative for the CIA is Shawn’s ex-handler/lover Julian Montgomery.

Julian has decided he wants Shawn back, the only thing wrong with his plan is that Shawn can’t stand him and refuses to even talk to him. Shawn doesn’t feel right about the op and tries to convince his commanding officer there’s something wrong but every time it’s considered it all checks out. Shawn knows Julian will go to any lengths to get what he wants and if him showing up in Shawn and Conner’s room naked is any indication, Julian is going to play as dirty as he knows to get him back.

You can feel Conner’s heart breaking when he realises what Julian is up to, added to the fact that Shawn and he aren’t exactly on speaking terms and Conner is feeling lost. But, at least he’s been forewarned he’ll now keep his guard up around Julian. The closer to the mission they get the surer both Conner and Shawn are that something isn’t right. Conner is kidnapped in the aftermath of the botched raid. Conner is then used as a “test subject”, after being beaten and tortured he is injected with a lethal poison that no-one has ever survived.
Will Shawn and Shadow Unit find Conner in time? Will Shawn and Conner remain partners? You are going to have to get your own copy of Rogue Soldier to get the answers. Make sure you’ve read Broken Soldier first.

This is book two in the series but I would say can be read as a stand alone although I think book one builds the characters in your mind, so I would read book one first. This book I found more tense and interesting than book one and I really enjoyed that book. I wasn’t expecting the turns in this book and it kept me interested until the end. This book is well written and a very enjoyable read.
