Reviewing Broken Soldier & Rogue Soldier by Jamie Lynn Miller.

Broken Soldier (Shadow Unit #1) by Jamie Lynn Miller 4*
BLURB: Sergeant Connor Finley and Sergeant Shawn Weller are dedicated soldiers working covert ops for Shadow Unit -- a joint UK/US anti-terrorism task force.
Partners in the field and out, they had been through hell together for the last four years and made it through standing side by side. But when their latest undercover op to bring down an arms dealer plunges them into a world of drugs, sex and violence, Shawn must literally get in bed with the enemy in order to complete the mission. And Connor is forced to watch, helpless, as his partner is broken into pieces.
Will love be enough to put them both back together or will this be their final mission?
WARNING: Contains scenes of drug use, graphic sex and realistic situations
 


My ReviewI received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Having grown up in the forces and married a soldier I really love military themed books and this was my main criteria for saying yes to reading this book. As it happens this book was much more than a 'military men in covert missions' romance . It was a look at what good people go through to stop the bad guys in this world. The author has no qualms about giving the reader a realistic and harrowing portrayal of all that Shawn goes through both during and after the mission. However I wouldn't want to leave you with a negative impression of the book because I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading book two.

BLURB: Shadow Unit may have overturned the illegal arms cartel in Kuala Lumpur, but the harrowing undercover op left emotional scars on Sergeants Shawn Weller and Connor Finley. Slowly, patiently, they piece their partnership back together, closer now than ever before.
But the arrival of Julian Montgomery, Shawn’s former CIA handler and lover, threatens to tear them apart. Julian knows all of Shawn's secrets as well as the past Shawn has kept hidden from Connor. Now the self-serving Julian wants Shawn back—with the CIA and with him. No one will get in his way. Including Connor.
When the joint Shadow Unit/CIA mission to stop the supplier of a deadly biological weapon goes sideways, Connor is captured, tortured, and used as a human test subject. It’s a race against time to save his life. But who can Shawn trust?
And who has gone rogue?

My Review: I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. So as previously stated I was looking forward to reading this book and very grateful to the publisher for having given me both books to read. Why? Well firstly because it continues the story of Shawn and Connor and if I hadn't read book one I would have been a little lost (but enough back story was given to fill in any gaps if you had come to this one first). Again Jamie takes the reader on a harrowing journey that seems very realistic to me. This time it's Connor being put through the ringer and as before we get the blood and gore and the feelings. I jsut hope there's a book three to come, I know I'll be adding it to my library if there is.
