Friday Memes: Final Siege by Scarlett Cole

Malachai "Mac" MacCarrick pulled the knife from its sheath with barely a whisper. During his years as a Navy SEAL, most of his ops had been black in nature, with silence a prerequisite for staying alive.
Friday 56:
Delany stood and moved close to Mac, a move she probably didn't think twice about, but he knew it had to do with those stubborn-as-shit walls of hers coming down, whether she liked it or not. 
This week I am reading Final Siege by Scarlett Cole from my review stack. Here is the description from Amazon:

Former SEAL Malachai “Mac” MacCarrick is all about the future he’s created with his Navy brothers in Eagle Securities, taking assignments in the most dangerous places, and doing things no one but ex-military would attempt. But when an urgent phone call brings his troubled past—and the woman he once loved—into the present, it’s a chance to redeem himself that he can’t refuse.

straight to the heart. . .

An investigative journalist researching an explosive story, Delaney Shapiro tells herself she got over Mac—and his role in her brother’s death—a long time ago. But the first moment she sees him at her bedside in an overseas hospital, she knows it’s not true. Every moment together rekindles the desire that once burned between them, and now that she’s a target for an emerging Russian arms dealer, Mac won’t let her out of his sight. To protect her, he’ll risk it all—including his life…


  1. This book is being added to my TBR List ASAP! Malachi is one of my favorite names plus SEAL I'm hooked.

  2. You had me at "investigative journalist." Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE SIXTH WINDOW”

  3. I agree with Amelia. Malachai is a great name for a character. Hope you enjoy it.

  4. Sounds intense...ENJOY!!

    Thanks for sharing and coming by my blog, Kathy.

  5. Hi Kathy, This sounds gritty! This write-up makes me curious how much is action thriller and how much is romance... Have a good weekend.

  8. I love the name Malachai! This sounds like a good one! Thanks for sharing! Happy reading! :)

  9. Sounds like an intense read! Happy weekend!

  10. Hi Kathy,

    Great opening lines, which set the scene really well, although the '56' lines are a bit too macho and predictable for my liking.

    I also find that it generally goes without saying that the hero will always have the kind of name that you are never likely to come across in real life - but then, who am I to break the romantic aura which surrounds the book's premise and that hunky cover art :)

    Enjoy the rest of the book and have a great weekend :)


  11. I haven't read too many SEAL novels but this one does sound good. I do enjoy a protagonist who is a journalist. This sounds like a lot of fun!

  12. Ooooh! This one sounds like it very action-packed! I hope that it is one you enjoy. Thanks for sharing this one. :)

  13. This sounds wicked...I love that 56! Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  15. I've heard a lot of good about Cole but not tried her yet.

  16. This looks like it could be fun. Have a wonderful weekend!

  17. I really like the 56 in this one. Sounds like a good read and this author is new to me.

  18. I love the first line! Great 56, too. Love the sound of Mac :)

  19. Not my usual read, but I hope you enjoy it.
