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.

The Shadow Unit series is about a covert anti-terrorism task force formed between the UK and US.  Connor Finley and Shawn Weller are partners, on the job and off.  This first book in the series is about their undercover work to take down an arms dealer (Jai) and what each must do and overcome to accomplish that task. 

Both MC's go undercover, Connor is hired as security in Jai's Club and Shawn becomes his lover.  Going into the mission, they didn't know that Jai controls the man he's with by getting him hooked on drugs and controlling the supplies.  Shawn is being given heroin daily and has to struggle through his addiction to complete the mission.  Connor is torn apart watching Shawn become more addicted.  But, regardless of the cost, they are able to stop the arms' deal and take care of Jai and his associates.  And Connor works to bring Shawn back to him.  

This is the first book from this author I have read and I was pleasantly surprised.  I had some trouble getting into the book in the beginning and I definitely did not buy the premise or actions of this unit but it is fiction, so it doesn't have to be true.  It's not a light-hearted read but once I was pulled into the book, I couldn't stop reading!  

Rating:  4 stars

Author's Bio: 

Jamie Lynn Miller has been writing fiction since childhood and decided to take the plunge and go pro in 2008, finding to her amazement that people truly enjoyed her love stories. She’s a romantic at heart, and her tales reflect the desire we all have to find “the one,” persevering through trials and heartache for that happy ending.
Jamie has a degree in fine arts and has spent the last twenty years working as a graphic designer, though she’d much rather be writing. She was born in Chicago and still lives there today with her husband and their two furry, four-footed children, er… cats.
If she’s not brainstorming story ideas, you can find Jamie at a sci-fi convention, in front of a furnace doing glass blowing, or on a mat twisted into a yoga pose.
