Hearts Under Siege
by Natalie J. Damschroder
Brady Fitzpatrick has spent a decade burying the pain of a broken heart while working for SIEGE, an information-gathering spy agency. That it kept him away from his family as well as his best friend Molly has been an unfortunate side effect. But when his brother, also an agent, is killed during a foreign op, Brady is drawn into a web of intrigue that threatens the lives of everyone he loves…
Molly Byrnes has loved Brady forever. As his best friend and a de facto member of the Fitzpatrick family, she holds them together in their crushing grief. But as a member SIEGE’s ground team, she doesn't buy the official line about Brady’s brother’s “accidental” death and launches her own investigation—only to uncover a shocking secret that she and Brady must get to the bottom of before their target finds them.
Tangled emotions land them in bed together, opening Brady’s eyes to the incredible, fearless woman who’s been there for him all his life. But after a lifetime of disappointment, how can Molly trust the possibility of a future with him…or if they can count on any future at all?
Brady has stayed away from his family for years. He had his heart broke and doesn't want to face the loss all the time so he stays busy working for SIEGE. He is a spy going on dangerous missions and his family doesn't know what he really does. Molly has always cared for Brady. She has been his best friend for years and his family treats her like one of them. She is also a member of SIEGE and while she knows what Brady does, he has no clue she is a member of SIEGE. When Brady's brother is killed Molly has to go get Brady. Molly feels something isn't right with the death and begins to look into it her self. While she and Brady work to figure things out they find themselves in danger and while Brady has had his eyes opened to how great Molly is, she is afraid his past heart ache will never stop.
Molly is such an amazing character. She loves Brady and his family and will do anything for them. She is strong, smart and doesn't let anything stop her from getting the answers she seeks. She is the type that would rather stand by and let the guy she loves be with someone else as long as they are happy. I love her and how she is constantly surprising people. Brady is a good guy who has had his head turned by a woman he can never have. He has walked away from his family and never thought he could be around them a lot. He has a dangerous job and he is good at it. I really started to like him when he really uses his eyes and sees what is in front of him.
From the start I could tell this would be a great book. I got wrapped up in this family and just had to have more. There is tons of action and danger and they are working for the same company but some of them don't know it. SIEGE has many secrets and plots unraveling and Molly and Brady find themselves right in the middle of it. There is so many twist and turns you don't see coming that keep you guessing what next. I love when Brady sees his past love again and has to face the fact she may not be the girl for him. He finally sees her faults and sees how wonderful Molly is. Molly is always right there ready to help in anyway. If you want a book that keeps you intrigued and fantastic characters and romance you must try this one.
