Brady Fitzpatrick had been friends with Molly Brynes so long that she was his best friend and was razzed a lot when they roomed together. Molly was she best friend and knew everything about him, but as they went to the train station to get his brother's girlfriend, bang went his heart and he instantly knew what his mom and dad meant when they met! But Jessica was now Christopher's girlfriend and he couldn't make a play on her. He knew he rarely kept a girl for longer than a couple of months so h ...more
Brady Fitzpatrick and Molly Byrnes bickered, the way best friends do. This time they were bickering about true love when he spied an off-limits her, Jessica couldn't be on his list of must haves. She was with his brother, Chris, a definite no poaching zone. Brady couldn't see Molly loving him, not when he knew there was no chance of a life with Jessica, not when he changed all his familiar relationships forever.

Jessica and Chris loved each other even after they married, the elder Fitzpatrick's

This book was such a great read and drew me in from the first page. There was lots of action and suspense, I loved the premise of the SEIGE organization and how the different parts of the organization worked with each other, and I loved Molly and Brady’s love story.

First we have Molly – loyal, dependable, compassionate, and so strong! She’s been in love with her best friend Brady forever, but he never sees her as more than just a best friend. Even though she is heart broken when Bra

My opinion:
A pure pleasure! As you know I do love romantic suspense from time to time, it’s a genre I really appreciate but sadly they are also often too predictable for me with “Hearts under Siege” it wasn’t the case at all.

The story is captivating, Molly and Brady are characters we would love to meet and there are so many twists and turns that I was completely hooked turning pages after pages without a break because I needed

This is the first book that I have read by Natalie J. Damschroder and I truly enjoyed it. She has a great way of telling a story that includes mystery and suspense that I was hanging on to every detail until the very end. I will definitely be looking into other titles that she’s written.

Molly Byrnes and Brady Fitzpatrick have been friends for a long time. Just friends. Love at first sight hits Brady hard but it's his brothers fiancé Jessica that he falls for so he distances himself from his family.

I'm not usually a fan of military style romance, but I love Natalie Damschroder's other books and I'm so glad I took a chance on this one. SIEGE is a super secret spy agency - the type where the people working there don't even know who else is working there. Brady is out on assignment when news comes that his brother has died. No one can reach him but Molly, another agent of SIEGE and Brady's best friend from childhood. So the adventure starts with her tracking him down, but it doesn't stop ther ...more

Best friends. Co-spies. Lovers. Brady and Molly have it all, except the love and relationship they could have is obvious to everyone but Brady.

Twelve years ago, he fell head-over-heels in love with his brother Christopher's girlfriend. Since he couldn't pursue her, he did what he thought was best and pulled away from everyone, including Molly. That decision caused their friendship to shift drastically, but it didn't cause her feelings

I really enjoyed this story, it starts out out kinda slow but it doesn't drag out and it isn't long before the mystery unfolds with a few twists that leaves you thinking I didn't see that coming. The heroine is Molly a smart mouth and kick butt type of girl that's been in love with her best friend Brady(groan) we all know getting out of the friend catagory much less the best pal one can be a dead end, good thing Brady isn't as dense as some males but it does take him some time to realize that th ...more

Brady, Brady, Brady....sometimes I just wanted to really hurt you!! How is it that some guys just can't see what's right in front of them?? Brady thinks he's in love with his brother's (Chris) girlfriend (Jessica) turned wife, so he actually steps away from his family, friends, and immerses himself in his work.

Ok, So I loved this one. I'll admit it did take me a bit to get into it but once I did I couldn't put it down. Lost of twists and turn and suspense. A very fun ride. There were plenty of moments where I wanted to grab the characters and just shake them. Brady especially. He is such a great guy but can be so blind as to what's in front of him. I adored Molly. She's very sarcastic and fun. A really strong women. She loves Brady so much and would do anything for him. Even at the cost of her own hap ...more

Absolutely do not start this book late in the day if you want a good night's sleep. Or you don't want to end up in the wee hours of the morning groaning because you hate to put it down. I lasted until 4 a.m. when I finally had to give up and go to sleep!

From the very beginning (which elicits a snicker over a guy who won't take directions well while driving), you find everything that makes an excellent contemporary suspense with humor. You got your clueless-for-awhile hero, a saucy, smart (but no

The blurb gives a good synopsis of the story line and I don't want to give more details so the reader can be surprised.

I enjoyed the book and liked all the characters, particularly Molly who's love for Brady doesn't leave her not living her life and moping for him. She's moved on. The book teases us with a mention that Molly had to leave the traveling world of the music business for a home based music store after a while, but doesn't tell us why. I thought maybe there'd be a big surprise there,

I really liked this book for the most part. I loved the whole bestfriend turns romance part of the book. I liked Molly and Brady together, but I still had iffy feelings about the whole Jessica Thing. I really didn't like her that much. I really wanted to smack Brady and tell him he's an idiot for not seeing what's in front of him. For the first part of the book he was "In love with Jessica" but then he suddenly isn't. I really neede

What a fantastic book of suspense, mystery and romance! I loved being a part of each character's growing up and realizing how much more life can be. Molly has always been a part of the Fitzpatrick clan, including best friends with Brady. You have the story of that friendship becoming more - but the author made it believable and a page turner.
Both of them are a part of SIEGE - but Brady doesn't know Molly is. When life turns upside down with a family death, things start to unravel and go wild. A

What an amazing intense story! It had so many twists and turns. I loved everything about Brady and Molly. Molly and Brady were such strong characters from the beginning. I loved that they were best friends since an early age and knew each other better than anyone. Molly was such a generous friend, always eager to give anything she had to Brady and his family. But I loved how she was not a pushover as well. Then there is Brady who left everything for a long time. You could feel the pain in each c ...more

I can honestly say I was skeptical at first but once I dove in I couldn't stop. Spy/thrillers aren't my usual nor preferred genre but I was happily surprised. I didn't put this down. I read it in one sitting (plagued by the flu) and I really enjoyed it. I didn't find it all predictable or cliched.

I felt so for poor Molly. My God,dude! Get a clue! I wanted to plant myself into the story just to smack him across the face, chest, and head and tell him not to be such an idiot. I mean you're a spy!

I truly enjoyed this spy/suspense/romance. It had such a perfect blend of the three components to keep me flipping pages furiously waiting for the next twist! I loved Molly, she was tough and funny and all things female leads should be. Brady was a strong alpha even though I wanted to smack him around when it came to Jessica.

Hearts Under Siege is an extremely well written romance/suspense novel. There were no proof reading or editing problems in the copy I received. This book was a very happy find for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The plot was original and fast paced, with enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. It ended with a satisfying HEA.

The characters were fully developed and I was especially happy to see a heroine portrayed as strong, intelligent and with good common sense.

I am so happy that I happened
