Book Details

Roth by Anna Hackett
Hell Squad #5
Published: September 21, 2015 by Anna Hackett
Genre: Science Fiction Romance

Roth Masters is a protector to the bone. Driven by the losses of his past, he fights side-by-side with Hell Squad to protect the human survivors of the alien invasion. As leader of Squad Nine, he and his team are known for their perfect timing in a firefight. But Roth knows they need more intel on the raptor invaders–something to turn the tide of the battle. And he knows the woman he rescued from an alien facility is hiding secrets he desperately wants to uncover.

Former Coalition Central Intelligence Agent Avery Stillman is still adjusting to her new life. Left with terrible gaps in her memory, she has vague recollections of failed negotiations with the aliens, the invasion, and after that…nothing. Until a hard-bodied soldier pulled her from a tank in an alien lab. Now she’s trying desperately to remember, to help fight back, and also battling the crazy attraction to the man who keeps pushing her for things she can’t remember.

Soon Roth finds himself torn between his duty and keeping the strong woman he’s falling for safe. As the pair head into alien territory to investigate, they are attacked and crash land alone, far from base. They have to work together to survive the aliens, but when Avery finally remembers everything…her secrets could annihilate all they hold dear.

My Review

There was so much new information in Roth and I loved finding out about the beginning of the invasion. I won’t say much so I don’t give anything away but Avery really had some doozies trapped in her head. There’s also some development regarding other human survivors and I’ll just say that things are about to get very interesting!

It was nice to spend some time with a different squad, this one led by Roth, and I’m ecstatic that it’s an almost all female team. These women are tough, brave, and feisty and I can’t wait for their stories. Roth is a great leader who provides a steady presence for his team and a dedication to the squads and the base. He’s smart, intense, and a career solider. Roth desperately needs to know what’s trapped in Avery’s mind so he’s constantly pushing her to remember and this frustrates Avery to no end. Initially, Avery and Roth are at odds and don’t like each other but as Roth begins to see Avery’s dedication to retrieving her memories and they spend more time together their feelings begin to change. I really liked Avery and Roth together because they respect each other and are comfortable leaning on each other when needed.

I’m so excited for more of this series because it’s just amazing!
