Final Siege by Scarlett Cole Review

4.5 Smooches



Former SEAL Malachai “Mac” MacCarrick is all about the future he’s created with his Navy brothers in Eagle Securities, taking assignments in the most dangerous places, and doing things no one but ex-military would attempt. But when an urgent phone call brings his troubled past—and the woman he once loved—into the present, it’s a chance to redeem himself that he can’t refuse.


An investigative journalist researching an explosive story, Delaney Shapiro tells herself she got over Mac—and his role in her brother’s death—a long time ago. But the first moment she sees him at her bedside in an overseas hospital, she knows it’s not true. Every moment together rekindles the desire that once burned between them, and now that she’s a target for an emerging Russian arms dealer, Mac won’t let her out of his sight. To protect her, he’ll risk it all—including his life…


Scarlett Cole never fails to amaze me with her stories.  Her books take me on a journey I never expected. Final Siege is the second book in her Love Over Duty series and by far my favorite thus far. I am a sucker for a second chance romance especially one with a  tragic backstory and Final Siege is all of that and so much more.

Mac and Delaney’s past had them deeply in love but after his best friend/her brother dies Delaney blames Mac. Mac has lived his life since then living in honor of her brother. But there is so much more to the story than Delaney knows and now that she is back in his life it finally time for him to tell her everything.

I read the entire book on the edge of my seat. I fell hard for these characters and their tale. If you love a sexy read with a lot of emotion and action then this is one you don’t want to miss.
