Review: Under Siege

Book Review: Under Siege, by Catherine Mann
 
✩✩

To the air force, Lt. Col. Zach Dawson was a dress-blue bona fide hero, complete with medals and behind-enemy-lines battle scars. But a hero didn't allow an airman's pregnant wife to become a widow under his watch. And a hero didn't command combat squadrons yet lack control over two daughters desperately in need of maternal love.
To heck with heroes. Zach the man and father knew exactly what needed to happen. Julia Sinclair would become his bride-of-convenience, her baby and his girls gaining a parent in the bargain. But having Julia under his roof put Zach's reputed restraint under siege. 
 
Genre: military romance

Publishing date: May 2010 (for the Kindle edition; the original print edition is older)

Mature content: yes

Review: To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with Under Siege. The book started amazingly well. I was hooked from page one and I kept thinking it was truly going to be 5-stars worthy. This lasted until Zach and Julia decided to consummate their marriage. From then onwards, things just seemed forced between them, as if they were both just going through the motions because that's what's expected of them, and because there's supposed to be a happy ending. Everything else was great - the interaction with and between the children, all the ups and downs of holding a family together...but the romance? Not convincing enough. So, if you want a light, uncompromising read and are not bothered by the details, Under Siege is not too bad. Otherwise, there are much better choices out there.


Happy readings!
