Easy to read military romances are an enjoyable mix

Broken SoldierBroken Soldier by Jamie Lynn Miller

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hmmm, there’s an awful lot of “just run with it” to be had when reading this book.

As it’s only novella length, I think the author did pretty good to get as much background and scene setting on without it feeling like an info dump.

But, having said that, a big pinch of salt is needed throughout as things go somewhat off the rails and the mission gets deadly serious.

Rogue Soldier (Shadow Unit, #2)Rogue Soldier by Jamie Lynn Miller

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Like book one in the series, this one is majorly dramatic with all sorts of things going on and a body count which gets higher as it goes on.

The basic premise is good, double-crossing your fellow for gain isn’t anything new and this works well, even when the identity of the baddie is established from the off.

The tension lies in waiting for the treachery to take place and it’s carried out with skill and a lot of plotting.

All is brought to a satisfying conclusion and out two heroes are able to fight another day together.

Hunted Soldier (Shadow Unit #3)Hunted Soldier by Jamie Lynn Miller

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sometimes I just want to be entertained without having to think about the practicalities or the realities of whether a plot would actually work. This series does that for me.

There’s ever more increasing dramatic military operations but at the heart of this series is the incredible love and partnership between Shawn and Connor and I love that.

Book Three ramps up the tensions and sees the guys back on the anti-terrorist trail, hooking up with an MI6 operative in Bangladesh and falling into the hands of a previously unknown enemy. I liked the twist in this one, finding out who the bad guy was worked well.

The rest of the team is on hand to come in and rescue our boys at the last minute once the task’s been completed and I just like that these books are an easy read without any mental mathematics.
