One of my FAVE scenes in Under Siege! 🔥 “I can’t just bail on Lily. And explaining this one to her is gonna be…” “Leave that to me.” Ash’s hand wrapped around mine, hauling me back into the bar, beelining for the small crowd of guys that had gathered around my best friend. “Pardon,” Ash interrupted their conversation. “Tinsley's gonna be staying with me for the next few weeks. She’ll stop over to grab clothes and any other shit she needs, and you’re welcome to come over anytime. But for the next ...more

Love, love, love this one. Great short story. Perfectly safe. Loved the way they loved each other and were only about each other and no one else. Great read.

Received as an ARC for a honest review.
Loved the book. Loved the way they met and that he knew she was the one before he met her face to face. These two were awesome together. Their chemistry was off the chart.

I understand that book like this are just quickies with no depth but only sex. But having read books like Dear Aaron with similar plot line about being a pen pal with a soldier, I'm highly traumatized.
Why did I start reading this book😖

Super quick read which I love sometimes. Aria Cole has a way with those and getting straight to the good parts without skipping on the story itself. You can kind of call this an insta-love type of book, but kinda not as well. I don't want to spoil a thing with this quick read, but it is 100% hot and steamy. I loved it and the story between Tinsley and Ash. Make sure you add it to your to be read shelf! It's a definite must read.

Ash Ford is super hot and super intense. He's a man on a mission and he's not gonna be satisfied until he's made Tinsley his in every way possible. The ultimate alpha, he's definitely a man who you want to be the sole focus off.

It's a short, intense, super sexy story and I'd definitely recommend it if your a fan of Aria's work. She writes these stories so well, you won't be left disappointed.

5 Stars!

Sexy. Swoony. Sweet. Over the top. Insta-everything. Aria Cole knows how to write them dirty, naughty, short, safe, and easy. She'll make your heart race, get your blood pumping, and have your panties damp.

Under Siege is her newest standalone novella and holy smokes was it amazing. Tinsley and Ash burned up my pages and had my heart sighing with happiness. Their story was just what I needed to heat up my cool nights.

Run to this author on Amazon of you like your bedtime stories a little..

A hot quick read by Aria Cole.

Like a lot of Aria Cole books Under Siege is quick and hot, contains insta lust, an alpha male cave man and a super fast track to a hea.

Under siege is about Ash who is in the armed forces and Tinsley who have both been writing to each other for three years and have never met.

And when they do meet hold on because it's a scorching hot whirlwind of a ride to the hea.

I like these books there great for when you just want a quick read and haven't got the time or maybe

This was a very swoony, safe and sweet read for me, but with a very realistic and naughty side. This book had me at the prologue with the last letter Ash wrote Tinsley....dibs, double dibs, mine, you name it and I’m calling it. Everyone should have and want a man like Ash. A real man, that’s all man, but can still be devoted and completely in love with his woman. So if you want to feel that way....even for a this book. Hell just read the prologue if that’s what you want...he’s wort ...more

This was a swoon worthy, sexy, safe, military romance that hit all the right buttons on my list—A sexy, alpha military hero, innocent sassy heroine and one intense connection between the main characters. Ash and Tinsley are definitely soulmates who meet when exchanging letters while Ash was serving overseas in the military and thru that, a friendship formed. From that friendship, ended up forming a very special type of relationship that has lasted over 3 years. Finally Ash came home determined t ...more
This story is short, fast paced and sweet. I read this book in one sitting and wasn’t once bored. I really liked Tinsley and Ash. I liked their story and them as a couple. The chemistry between them was clear to see and they were sweet together. I liked how possessive Ash was. He wasn’t willing to let Tinsley shy away from him. Some of the scenes in this book were panty melting hot.
I really liked the two epilogues for this story. Both are super sweet.
