Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of a deadly alien invasion, a band of survivors fights on.
In a world gone to hell, Elle Milton - once the darling of the Sydney social scene - has carved a role for herself as the communications officer for the toughest commando team fighting for humanity's survival - Hell Squad. It's her chance to make a difference and make up for horrible past mistakes, despite the fact that its battle-hardened commander never wanted her on his team.
When Hell Squad is tasked with destroying a strategic alien facility, Elle knows they need her skills in the field. But first she must go head to head with Marcus Steele and convince him she won't be a liability.
Marcus Steele is a warrior through and through. He fights to protect the innocent and give the human race a chance to survive. And that includes the beautiful, gutsy Elle, who twists him up inside with a single look. The last thing he wants is to take her into a war zone, but soon they are thrown together, battling both the alien invaders and their overwhelming attraction. And Marcus will learn just how much he'll sacrifice to keep her safe.

Promising Start to Action Packed Steamy Sci-Fi!


I love coming across a "new to me" author, and series and stumbled across Hell Squad while searching for something different to listen too. After reading the reviews, and visiting the author's website, I knew I had to give this series a shot. Now that I've listened, I'm glad I did!

What really caught my attention was the alien invasion/apocalyptic theme, and the romantic relationship that develops between the H/h in a world that has literally gone to hell. Marcus, Elle and the other Hell Squad members are trying to defeat, and destroy the aliens who have invaded earth. In this first book, the Hell Squad team manages a small victory, but the war is far from over. I loved how this story establishes the relationship between the first couple Marcus and Elle, while also laying the foundation for future stories by introducing events, and characters that will take place in the next book. If each book in this series manages to not only develop a steamy relationship between a new H/h, but also build upon the previous book, while further developing the overall plot, I think I am going to really enjoy this series.

Another solid plus, the narration. Jeffrey and Samantha are excellent narrators, who do an outstanding job with the characters, and dialogue. This is a fast paced story, where the scenes can change quickly, and range from intense to steamy, but these narrators flawlessly deliver all the various tones and emotions throughout the story.

A promising audio start to the Hell Squad series, and an excellent KU/whispersync deal! Looking forward to listening to book two.

Great story

BOOK REVIEW.......
Ok first I have to admit that I wasn't really sure I would like this series. While I love love love sci-fi movies and shows I generally have trouble with getting into sci-fi books.

That being said. I love this series! The characters are so full of life and strength. The dialogue is witty and smart. I loved how flawed and messed up everyone is, yet still strong and touch enough to fight back yet. It makes for great obstacles for the characters to have to over come along with the aliens they have to fight.

Now I would be lying if I didn't say that the aliens are a little bit hokey. They are a mixture of different dinosaur/reptilian and human shaped. I wish there was a drawing of them in the books. It would help with picturing them. However they are rather cool sounding and impressively evil wicked buggers.

The characters of Marcus and Elle were well rounded and nicely written.

I would recommend this book and series to anyone looking for a good alien story to read.
