Blog tour: R.J. Prescott's "City Under Siege."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for R.J. Prescott's "City Under Siege."


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 speciality. 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.

Review: Jo 

This one took me a few chapters to get into, but once I did I was hooked. "City Under Siege" was everything that it promised to be; exciting, passionate and gripping until the very last page. If you love the sound of a romance with a gorgeous SAS hero, this is one to add to your TBR's. 

"The truth was, when there were a hundred reasons to let go,
 she was the only reason I needed to hold on." 

This thrilling novel sees the story of Sarah and Tom. Tom, an extremely hot military man was assigned to protect Sarah after she found herself in the middle of a terrorist plot. As you can imagine, everything that happened from the moment they met was either sexy and swoony or filled with edge-of-your-seat drama as the couple fall in love in the middle of an action packed plot. You can see why it was a page turner.

"She was crazy and chaotic and colourful,
 and she lit up the room like a fucking lightbulb. 
She was a beacon of hope for a guy like me." 

I absolutely loved Sarah and Tom together. They made a steamy couple with heaps of sexual chemistry between them. Tom turned into a delicious alpha and became so protective of Sarah. He stopped at nothing to keep her save and I found the way that he cherished Sarah to be so attractive. I also enjoyed Tom's relationship with his colleagues. They shared a lot of entertaining banter and I would be more than happy to read other books from Tom's friends. 

"So, I guess I'm stuck with you now then, huh?"
"Suck it up, buttercup. You're stuck with me forever." 

"City Under Siege" was another fantastic read from R.J. Prescott. It gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me. 


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.”
