London is a city in flames. Tensions are high and a critical situation is about to go from bad to worse. The Prime Minister wants to send a message, and the SAS will be the ones to deliver it. Emotional detachment is my specialty. I’m ruthless and cut throat, but there is nobody better. Sarah Tatem is an innocent. Caught up in a world in which she doesn’t belong, and trying desperately to do the right thing. My job is to keep her safe long enough to get what’s needed, and bring an end to this siege of terror. But something has changed. I’ve learned that the only thing stronger than loyalty is love, and now she’s gone. My name is Lieutenant Tom Harper, and I’m about to unleash hell.

    My Review

As you all know, The Hurricane and The Aftermath were two of my favourite reads a couple of years back. Therefore, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a new R.J. Prescott book. Especially one about the SAS.

As soon as I saw the cover for City Under Siege, I needed to have it. And it's safe to say it didn't disappoint. Filled with action, danger, and chemistry, this book kept me hooked from start to finish.

There was definitely sparks between Tom and Sarah. Although this isn't a conventional relationship and they don't do all that many coupley things, it's easy to feel the chemistry and heat between them. I especially felt the depths of their emotions towards the end.

I won't say anything about the plot other than it held my attention and was well developed. I did think the ending could have used a couple of extra chapters to make it a bit more gradual and satisfying, but it did tie up loose ends like I wanted.

Overall, another great read by this author. Con still holds a special place in my heart but I'd definitely recommend this.

Read an excerpt from CITY UNDER SIEGE

I was practically kneeling in front of the screen as I tried to understand what I was seeing. Men were shouting at one another, though their words were indecipherable. The person filming darted out from behind a shipping container to take more shots. Everything was happening so fast, the camera moving wildly with the person it was attached to. Finally, I realised it was a body cam by the way it was flailing and jerking all over the place. I had no idea what shipyard they were in, but it made sense that the assault would be there rather than a boat. They would have wanted to take the terrorists after the handover happened, just to be sure. A soldier came into shot across the way, crouched behind another container, and I guessed he was one of ours. Covered from head to toe, it was impossible to know who it was, but I held my breath anyway. The camera at least became steady as the gunfire slowly ebbed, though focused now on the last of the targets. In the periphery of the screen, the kneeling soldier leant further forward to take a shot when he was yanked sharply backwards in a move that literally saved his life. As the last shot rang out, sounding a death knell to the terrorists who’d been responsible for taking so many innocent civilian lives, the rest of the team seemed to realise what I already knew. The rescuer, the guardian angel who’d ripped his teammate away from the path of certain death, had exposed himself to make the ultimate sacrifice, saving his friend’s life at the expense of his own. Soldiers darted in front of the camera again, and a few more indistinguishable voices called out before the silence. The excruciating, insufferable, tormenting silence, broken only by the clear voice that cut through the darkness like a scythe, ripping a hole through my heart as it did. “Man down.”


USA Today bestselling author R.J. Prescott was born in Cardiff, South Wales, and studied law at the University of Bristol, England. Four weeks before graduation she fell in love, and stayed. Ten years later, she convinced her crazy, wonderful firefighter husband to move back to Cardiff where they now live with their two equally crazy sons. Her debut novel The Hurricane was an international bestseller and finalist in the Goodreads Awards in the category of debut author. Website / Facebook / Twitter / Instagram

Review ~ Toad by Cambria Hebert

ToadToad by Cambria Hebert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn't think it was possible, but Toad surpassed Butterfly--and I really loved Butterfly. I knew I would love this book before I picked it up though. It's about Nate, and I loved Nate in book 1.

I'm so glad Cambria managed to keep Nate's personality true to what was in Butterfly. He was quirky, random, cute, and just pure awesomeness. I loved his odd mind and his easy-going nature. He wasn't the typical hero, but he's one of my favourites. I could relate to him and felt for him.

I won't say anything about the plot other than it was great. Mostly, this book is about Nate--he makes it. If you loved him in Butterfly you'll be hooked on Toad.

Definite must read!

Review ~ Butterfly by Cambria Hebert

Butterfly (A Public Enemy Standalone)Butterfly by Cambria Hebert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn't think Cambria would be able to top her Hashtag series. In fact I was going to wait to read this because I didn't want to feel disappointed. Don't ask me why I thought I would be. I have no idea.

Anyway, in the end I saw the cover reveal for Toad and I couldn't resist reading Butterfly. It definitely didn't disappoint and I think this is my new favourite Cambria Hebert book.

Butterfly was sweet, cute, funny, real, and an all-round great read. It held my attention the entire way through and put a smile on my face. I loved how Stark and Violet bounced off each other and it was just an easy romance to watch and fall in love with. There was about the right amount of drama, but for the most part it remained lighthearted and enjoyable. I couldn't put it down.

Overall, I'm so looking forward to Toad. Nate was a great character and I hope he lives up to what he was in Butterfly. I'd highly recommend this read.

Review ~ Eulogy (Eagle Elite, #9) by Rachel Van Dyken

Eulogy (Eagle Elite, #9)
eARC received via a tour company in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: February 20th 2018

Publisher: Self-published

All is lost.
I don't recognize myself in the mirror anymore.
My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.
I've lost my soul.
She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.
Sixty lives are mine to take.
Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.
Sixty lives plus one more.
When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.
Only one person stands in the way.
She doesn't realize I'll kill her too.
I don't own a heart.
And even if I did — I wouldn't fall prey to its lies again.
I am Chase Abandonato.
Heir to a legacy of betrayal.
And I will kill them all.
Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.
A life for a life.
A soul for a soul.
Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Blood in. No out.

My Opinion

I've been dying to read this book for months. The second I finished Enrage I wanted this book. 

If you've followed my blog for any length of time you know this is one of my all-time favourite series and it just keeps on giving.

Eulogy was everything I wanted it to be and come to expect. From the first page it hooked me until I couldn't put it down. It was great to be back in the mafia world, hearing the thoughts of so many past characters. Eulogy was carefully organised by who told what part and I enjoyed the numerous POVs.

I won't go into specifics about plot. The Eagle Elite series are books you need to experience, and in my opinion if you don't you're missing out. If you've read them them you'll know what to expect and Eulogy won't disappoint. If you haven't, you need to start!

Overall another excellent addition to the series. I hope this isn't the end!

Review ~ The Healing Touch by Apryl Baker

The Healing Touch (Manwhore, #3)The Healing Touch by Apryl Baker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've enjoyed this series, but I don't think book 2 or 3 lived up to Touch Me Not. Don't get me wrong, I liked The Healing Touch and I got through it in a day. It kept me entertained and I liked some of the flirty banter. However, in comparison to book 1, it wasn't the same for me. Overall though it was a good series and I'm interested in the spin-off series coming soon.
