Marcus: Hell Squad
Hell Squad #1
by Anna Hackett
Synopsis from Goodreads
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 warzone, 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.
Coming in at less than 150 pages this was a quick sci fi action romance read.
This story packed lots of great action of military fighters fighting crazy dinosaur type aliens. A she likes him, he likes her but doesn’t tell type romance. Steamy scenes and great humor.
This story was just a fun read. Elle is the groups eyes while they are out fighting. Marcus is the groups leader. Elle finally gets to help out Hell Squad on the ground but Marcus doesn’t want her to get hurt. She isn’t trained for this stuff. Once Elle and Marcus are thrown together we get to see their attraction for each other hit head on. Also we get to see Elle become a bad a** female soldier. One who will do her job even if it puts her in harms way.
You got your action, sci fi, romance, humor and steamy parts. Plus its a short read that keeps you entertained to the end and (at least for me) looking forward to the next in the series.
