Dangerous: Former Navy SEAL Clarence Wolfe’s unit was taken out with a land mine. Injured and devastated, he hasn’t been quite right since. Worse, the tragedy was no accident. All Wolfe wants now is to take down the man responsible. In the meantime, he’s good with being the muscle for the Deep Ops team–and leading a steamy no-strings-attached personal life. Until one intriguing woman changes everything.
Determined: Reporter Dana Mulberry is on a mission to avenge the death of a fellow journalist. She’s finally hot on a trail–right to a sex club–where she runs into . . . Wolfe? It seems both their leads have led to the same spot. To keep from blowing their covers, they’ll have to at least pretend to have a little fun. Trouble is, they genuinely like each other. And that’s way too risky for Wolfe, especially when, to his surprise, Dana agrees.
Complicated: Drawn to each other in ways they can’t understand, Wolfe and Dana keep it professional–until they’re shot at one night. And when their adventures land them both at the heart of corruption in D.C.–and at odds in their missions–they’ll have to dig deeper than ever to succeed in their quests–and with each other.

My Rating: 4.5
I believe that most readers who have followed the ‘Deep Ops‘ series have been waiting for Wolfe’s story – I freely admit that he’s been on my radar since I first met him and his story went beyond what I was hoping for. ‘Broken‘ gives Wolfe the chance to shine on his own while dealing with his own need to avenge his military unit who were killed in the line of duty… when in reality their deaths were murder. It’s taken time but Wolfe finally has tracked down this vile villain – only to discover that he isn’t the only one out to see this filth pay for his actions. Dana has her own agenda which follows closely to Wolfe’s plans. She is following the trail of a fellow journalist’s murder – and the last person she expected to find was Wolfe. Now it’s in both of their interests to work together, and not blow either’s cover… right up until everything changed, and the rules don’t matter anymore.
I enjoyed every moment back in the ‘Deep Ops‘ world. Always fast-paced action, intriguing clues, the sizzling chemistry between Wolfe and Dana, and a plot that flows smoothly while always keeping me on my toes waiting for what happens next. And let’s not forget the absolutely most important character in this entire series… Roscoe. There are times when I think I follow this series just to run into this wild and crazy pup’s antics for he certainly steals every single scene he’s in. I adored Wolfe and Dana together. He’s a protector who rarely lets others see his softer side. He’s got issues, well-earned issues yet Dana’s strength and equally intense need to put things right is the perfect life partner for this man. I liked them individually and most definitely together. I had a blast with ‘Broken‘, and if you love a good, intense Romantic Suspense story then you’d love not only this story but the entire series if you haven’t yet started it. There’s more to come and I’m already anxious to get back to this world to discover what comes next for this team.
