    Fantastic fast paced story

    What a fantastic way to kick off a new series! I adored this book and it gives us a different side to Scarlett Cole's writing. I must say she nailed it! The perfect blend of romance and suspense to keep me turning page after page. Sixten "Six" Rapp is a former Navy SEAL starting up a security firm with his buddies. His first assignment is protecting Dr. Louisa North. A scientist researching a treatment for a previously incurable disease. She develops an chemical agent that is so powerful the wrong people want to get their hands on it for all the wrong reasons. Six is skeptical at first but quickly sees that the threat against Louisa is real. And the more he gets to know how the more he wants to make sure she stays safe. A great fast paced story that you won't want to put down. This is one for the must read list. I highly recommend it.

    Full of action and breath taking passion!

    Not sure how she does it, but Scarlett Cole has written yet another story that sucks you into its world, makes your heart race, leaves you breathless, and wanting more, more, more. Sixten and Louisa. Where do I even begin with these two? They're going to be a hard couple to beat in this new series, but I'm sure Scarlett is up to the challenge. Six is a rough around the edges former Navy Seal, who is all alpha, and can definitely get you hot and bothered. But the way he appreciates the female form. Damn! It's beautiful. And he's very thorough. No matter how many missions he's accomplished, or how tough he thinks he is, his heart doesn't stand a chance when he meets Louisa. Lou is all about her laboratory. Her research. Trying to develop a treatment for a disease that took her beloved father from her. She's painfully shy, and socially awkward, but she can't help but feel a pull toward the rugged ex military man. Six shouldn't get involved with her, but when danger comes to Louisa's doorstep, he can't help the instinct he feels to protect her. The chemistry is smoking hot between these two. So hot, you better be prepared for your kindle to melt. This book has everything you're looking for: pulse pounding action, breath taking passion, and every once in a while laugh inducing humour. Speaking of humour, I absolutely adored the camaraderie between Six and his "brothers." And can't wait for their stories as well.

    Romantic Suspense

    Under Fire by Scarlett Cole Love Over Duty #1 Scarlett Cole can write! She took my breath away with her Second Circle Tattoos series then with Preload, a spin-off series from Second Circle Tattoos, I became even more committed to her writing SO when I saw a retired group of men to star in her third series I wondered if she could pull it off. She definitely did! As an introduction to the Love Over Duty series we meet Mac, Cabe and Sixton – the founders of Eagle Securities. They have saved money while in the military with the idea of opening a business when they retired from the Navy. And, with all three finally on the ground in San Diego and ready to work together they are hiring men to be on the team, spending time together and busy, busy, busy. One night Sixton “Six” Rapp is working a fundraiser as security where he meets brilliant nerdy Louisa “Lou” North. He supports her as she faces speaking to the group willing to donate money toward her research (and other projects) and then they meet again when out on a trail and she helps him with a bit of PTSD. So, both have some issues with hers being anthropophobia and his PTSD. I always enjoy learning something new and this term was new to me (severe timidity and trouble dealing with people). I also learned about “box breathing” and though I have done breathing exercises THIS was new to me. Anyway, the two hit it off but really get together when Louisa approaches Six with her fears that the lab she is doing experiments has been compromised. The stakes are increased when papers and more go missing from the lab and then Louisa is targeted for kidnap. With Six and his team paid to keep Lou safe and on the job to find out what is going on the case is solved and resolved (mostly) by the end of the book AND there is a HEA for Six and Lou to look forward to as well as the reader getting to contemplate what will happen next in the series. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    3.825 ~ It Fell Flat and Was Predictable.

    ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Typical Romantic Suspense cover; man in tank top brandishing a weapon. Stormy skyline in background sets the turbulent mood for the plot. > > Looking Deeper < < POV ~> Third-person Scarlett Cole ventures away from her amazing Second Circle and Preload contemporary romance series' to delve into a more action-packed military romantic suspense series debut with UNDER FIRE. Louisa's case is not one they'd normally take on, but something about her calls to Six and he's determined to help her out. Soon enough, though, it becomes evident that she truly needs protecting when a potentially dangerous test sample goes missing from her lab and someone breaks into her home. Social awkwardness and a bit of neurotic behaviorisms aside, Louisa is extremely intelligent. Their chemistry is interesting, but sometimes contradictory. I did not quite feel the bond between them and did not buy their relationship beyond lust and sexual fulfillment. I enjoyed Mac and Caleb, but wish there'd been a prologue or prequel detailing their days with Brock, which ultimately led them to who, what, and where they were today. The plot was a standard fare chemical weapons espionage plot and while it flowed well, it played out like a scripted TV show or movie and contained several points of predictability. The conclusion was alright, but left several areas open for the next book to deal with. Overall, it was alright, but I felt it personally fell a tad short of my expectations. I've really enjoyed this author's previous work (since her debut novel, actually) and hope the second book (presumably Mac and Delaney) will be more dynamic and feel more natural. .

    Such a great read with lots of action

    I love a good romance filled with suspense and action. Under Fire was definitely that. Louisa is a scientist that is working on a cure for Huntington’s disease. Someone has stolen what they assumed was a fatal, but failed sample of her experiment. She met Six at a fundraiser where he was working security and she eventually shares with him her concerns regarding her work. Things heat up pretty quickly story wise while their relationship is a little slower to burn. Once the fuse is ignited however, things get hot fast. There was some push and pull due to Lou being a client of Six’s new security business but he finds it virtually impossible to stay away from her. Lou is practically crippled with shyness but she slowly comes out of it to a degree by the end of the book. I enjoyed watching her grow under Six’s tender care. Six is a great hero who knows when to push Lou and when to back away. He is certainly a man’s man. This is a fast paced read with lots of action and great secondary characters that I’m sure will be getting their own stories. I’ll be signing up for those as well!
