From the hunters . . . to the hunted.

When former CIA officer, Harper Brooks, joined an elite unit of special operators, her mission was to serve and protect, not to fall in love. But Roman Riviera was like no one she’d ever met.

Echo Four was the quiet one. A broody genius. And that intense and gorgeous Navy SEAL stole her heart. But would he also steal her focus?

Feb 02, 2021 added it  ·  (Review from the author)

When his hands gently captured hold of her arms, at first, she thought he might shove her away. There was a slightly angry curve to his lips as if he were on the verge of snapping.

This was a look she could read easily. And it was rare. Only when someone or something threatened her or the team did he become this fierce. The look of a warrior in the midst of battle, fueled by adrenaline, honor, and patriotism. Not necessarily in that order.

“What is it?” she asked, somewhat breathles

I can’t do this book justice with my words but I’m going to try. Roman and Harper’s chemistry literally sizzles off the pages. They’re both harboring secrets not allowing them to love each other like they want to. But an attempt on Harper’s life brings out the best/worst in Roman. He’s an enraged warrior ready to put himself in the line of fire willing to lose her and love her from afar. Those secrets that were making them stay away made them stronger than they thought and the team (his brothers ...more

OMG!! This book has everything that you want and expect from a Brittney Sahin book. I think that everyone who has read the rest of the Stealth Op books has been waiting on Roman and Harper's story. Let me tell you it does not disappoint. I did not want this book to end, but unfortunately it did. Just to prepare you all it works on all of your emotions every single one. I highly recommend it. ...more

This. Story. Is. So. Freakin. Tight.

If you’re a fan of Brittney Sahin’s Stealth Ops series, you’ve been waiting on Harper and Roman’s story for, what feels like, forever.

Talk about slow burn.

Since we first glimpsed their stolen glances when they thought no one was paying attention, and as their story slowly progressed from their appearances in the previous Stealth Ops books and most recently, from the Dublin Nights series, The Final Hour, their chemistry is so palpable that, for this reader,
Brittney, Brittney...what have you done! Asher was my favorite! But let me just say this ROMAN! OMG! I never was jealous of a fictional character but I want to be Harper soo bad! This is the first book that was just killing me with anticipation! And let me tell you Brittney did not disappoint with this amazing book. It has love lost, evil family, secrets, lies, suspense and finally true soulful love!

Roman is fighting a battle that no one knows about, not even his brother Bravo and Echo team. He

Every once in a while you wait with anticipation for a book to come out. Sometimes that book will disappoint, but sometimes it will surpass your expectations. Chasing Shadows will surpass those expectations. The emotion, the adventure, and the ride you go on will leave you breathless. This book is amazing. Brittney will surpass your expectations and tgen some. Harper and Roman are truly amazing and their love is intense. I never knew what they meant by book hangover until now!!

Britteny Sahin keeps rolling out one 5+ star book after another! When you think it can't get better, BAM, she does it again! Harper and Romans story does NOT disappoint. This book will pull at your heartstrings, make you mad, and everything in between. Some characters you want to hug, and do bodily damage to others (if they existed). You can't go wrong with Britteny Sahin!! ...more

We’ve waited so long, and we are not disappointed! Chasing Shadows by Brittney Sahin is a convoluted story worth reading as it keeps book lovers on the edge of their seats trying to figure out who might be the culprit/culprits leading the Teams on a wild goose chase. The people, themselves, work throughout the tale to determine who is pulling their strings; readers do the same, and it’s not until the end of the narrative that we are all sure. They are well-developed characters with very dangerou ...more

This book is straight up fire!! The chemistry between Harper and Roman has been building throughout this series and finally we have their story. I had my theories of what their story would be like, but nothing prepared me for this book. I read it in one sitting. Brittney once again hooks you from the very start and holds your interest until the very last word. I devoured this book. I laughed, I cried, and I wanted to knock some sense into Roman more times than I can count. Brittney has a way of ...more

It's always the quiet ones *fans self*

I was afraid the actual would not meet the expectation and thankfully I can say IT WAS AMAZING. I wanted to know more about Harper since book 1 so was thrilled when she became part of the Stealth Ops crew. I have since then waited and waited for her story so my anticipation and expectations were high.

Brittney Sahin delivered a sexy, action-filled story, and just when you think nothing else can happen -boom!

What an absolutely wonderful read! Roman and Harper story is just filled with intrigue , danger, suspense , romance and of course love. Their tale is so fast paced you can’t put it down, the twist and turns keep you reading till the very end. The whole plot just keeps changing its hard to keep up, you think you have it figured out then bang off you go in another direction . Don’t miss this one!

Chasing Shadows reveals the hard truths of the shadows that have been following Roman Riviera and Harper Brooks. My heart was on an emotional roller coaster ride throughout the book and now I am currently nursing my emotional book hangover. I had a hard time trying to find the words to write this review because I was left speechless when I finished the book. Out of all the Stealth Ops books, I felt this book the most and the hardest, in my heart and soul. I absolutely loved every single word of ...more

Wow!!! Just WOW!!!

I know when I pick up a Brittney Sahin book I can be guaranteed the following: Fast paced story, fascinating villains with intricate and evil schemes, intrigue and suspense, some HOT sexy times, more than one jaw dropping moment at a unsuspected plot twist, and some of the best characters I’ve ever read!!! It’s a lot to anticipate and demand of an author; and every time, Brittney has exceeded my expectations. I reread several parts because they were just beautiful!

Hold on.... things are about to get a bit bumpy.

This is book 9 in the Stealth Ops Series. All our heroes are happily married or engaged, some with children, others expecting. Roman & Finn are the last two single guys on the teams or as Roman says, Finn is the last single guy. Hmmmm....

With each book in this series that gets released the more I fall in love with each of the characters!! Brittney is making it really hard for me to choose a favourite couple because I can't choose as I love them all. Each of the storylines are different but all the endgoals are the same.. For the couple to have a HEA.

I've been waiting for Harper and Roman's story for quite a while lol. I just knew we'd find out why they weren't together from the past few books. But I knew that once we got their

***Chasing Shadows can be read standalone, but you will WANT to read all of Stealth Ops to learn more about Harper and Roman (and all the men of Bravo and Echo)***

This book is all the things. The intensity of the relationship between Roman and Harper leaps off the pages and slaps you right in the heart. I cried, I got nervous, I seethed, I wanted to jump through the book to join the fight... I wanted to scream to the characters like Bastian from Neverending Story in hopes they could hear me and

Do you ever read a book too fast because you have been DYING for its release only to wish it wouldn’t have ended so soon? That’s how I feel every time I finish one of Brittney’s books! Chasing Shadows leaves nothing untouched. I have been rooting for Harper and Roman for so long and it’s great that they are finally where they should be!

I need more stars. This is an incredible book. Steamy romance and special ops combine for an intriguingly complex storyline exploding with the intensity of a Tom Clancy novel. I was privileged to read an advance copy and I will be adding this one to my permanent library. Read the series!

Are you a fan of heroes that kinda make you want to hit them over the head with a 2x4 but also love them forever? Roman the guy for you! I loved Roman and Harper so much I can’t even tell you. Roman has a heart of gold and will do anything for those he loves even when that involves him taking himself out of the equation. Harper is such a smart, capable badass woman despite going through it in her life. I loved this couple and I loved this book. Brittney always knocks it out of the park but this ...more

Roman and Harper 🔥🔥

We have been waiting for these two to get together for 8 books!! IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! Roman and Harper have been exchanging glances, stealing moment and questioning their judgement for years now. Chasing Shadows is the culmination of their struggles to be together. The lies, the secrets and all that was holding them back can’t keep them apart anymore!

In true Stealth Ops fashion there is a “big bad” threatening the team and their families. This one hits a little closer to h

I’m a huge fan of Brittney Sahin’s work. When I first discovered her series I was all in couldn’t stop reading.

I feels like I was waiting for this story for so long because you read about Harper and Roman in multiples books and you just feel their passion for each other and just want to see them get finally together.

In the begging it was hard for me to get sucked up by the story like with all the other books.

 A gorgeous, but slightly tortured, displeased, sullen, grumpy, intense alpha hero with a weight of the world on his shoulders and a heart of gold
 A strong, sassy, quirky, vulnerable heroine who is not really equipped in dealing with our sullen, grumpy, stubborn hero

I just finished walking through a labyrinth with Roman & Harper as they fought for and fought against the thought of a happy ever after for themselves. Why do I describe Brittney Sahin’s ‘Chasing Shadows’ as a journey through a labyrinth? Labyrinth’s usually have one point of entry with the objective to get to the center and return. Both of these characters have secrets, both of them are protectors who put others well-being above their own, both of them are obstinate, and both of them are unbeli ...more

Roman and Harper gave into the attraction they share, but neither can commit, their secrets hold them back, so they vow to keep it a friendship so that they can remain focused on their work within a special operations unit. When a request for Harper comes from someone in her CIA past, the team follows to protect her as she meets the informant. It is there that Roman begins to realize that he cannot deny his need for her and there that a threat agai

"I don’t know how to regret this. Regret you.”


I received an ARC for an honest review. This is my first book of Brittney Sahin and I’ll mention a view points I liked and I didn’t like below.

First of all, it was a good read, but not a page-turner. The first 300 pages (as in kindle) were very confusing, because there was a hint of a forbidden love and I had no clue why. After some time it was unbearable to continue because it took really long for the truth to be revealed. That annoyed me t

How do you know you just finished reading an amazing book? The answer is simple. Once you complete the book, you open it right back up and start it all over again because you can’t possibly imagine life without it.

Book 9 in the Stealth Ops series is phenomenal. I really am at a loss for words to describe Chasing Shadows. After reading the first 8 books in the series, you get to know the main characters, Harper and Roman, already. You can tell they have something going on and a lot of chemistry.

This is book nine in Britney Sahin’s Stealth Ops World. An amazing series of books that just seem to get better with each new one. Chasing Shadows has been long awaited and for those of us that are fans, expectations were high. Her fans are completely invested in her characters and nothing but the best for Roman and Harper’s story would have been acceptable. Britney totally delivered.
