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.

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.”  


I’m a big fan of R.J. Prescott’s Hurricane series. Those characters have stolen a piece of my heart and her writing style always captivates me from beginning to end! I was really excited to be introduced to an entirely new cast of characters and story. City Under Siege is an intense and passionate reading journey that kept me turning the pages until the very end. 

Since the death of her father and brother, Sarah Tatem’s life has been a mess. She has been thrown into a world she does not belong to. The family business is creating chaos in her life and her aunt is putting non-stop pressure on her. Her life is put in danger when secrets are revealed about her family. Enter Lieutenant Tom Harper. His job his to protect her from any danger that surrounds her. What he did not expect? Falling hard for her. She’s like a soothing balm to his broken soul. 

I really loved the slow burning romance between Sarah and Tom. Their chemistry was instant, but their love bloomed in the most beautiful way and caught them both by surprise. R.J. Prescott always makes us feel like we are another character in the story and not just a reader. I was at the edge of my seat many times during this reading escape. Tom was a fantastic hero and I loved how he deeply fell in love with Sarah. I was cheering for their HEA from the very beginning. I loved how Sarah pushed his buttons and made him step out of his comfort zone, which was letting someone in to love him. 

I’m completely in love with Eli, Will and Crash an Nan. They all contributed to this story in a fantastic way and they brought a smile to my face. R.J. Prescott is an amazing author that writes stories that linger with you for a long time. If you have not read anything by this author, you are seriously missing out! 


I give, City Under Siege, by R.J. Prescott, 4.5 fierce, passionate, intriguing, heart-pumping stars!
