Noah by Anna Hackett
Hell Squad #6
Science Fiction Romance
Laura lost her fiancee in the alien invasion and she’s only just started to feel again and leave her numb state behind. She thought she had a type, strong military men, but Noah is challenging all of that. We’ve heard of the infamous fights between Noah and his Captain Dragon so it was nice to see some page time with the two of them. I was surprised by the addition of Gaz’da; I doubt we’ll see more of him but it was a unique addition to the world Anna Hackett has created.
Laura has had it rough, losing her family and fiancé in the alien invasion and she’s afraid to risk losing her numb state. But Noah is arrogantly determined and she finds herself starting to take a chance. Prior to this Noah has been pretty brusque when he’s in a mood but he’s surprisingly sweet with Laura. I like that they both understand each other’s work and commitments. Noah finds Laura’s strength sexy and Laura admires Noah’s drive and focus when he works on the comps and technology at the base. The ending was a flurry of action and excitement and boy what a rush.
The nano-meds have been used since the beginning of the series and they help heal the survivors from even the toughest of injuries. Sometimes I feel like it’s just too easy, not that I want anyone to be really hurt or die, but it feels like some characters get hurt an awful lot. Also, as a matter of curiosity, how do the nano-meds get extracted? Or do they just dissolve? There’s a lot of concern with the nano-meds getting out of control and attacking the body, so they have to be carefully monitored. But what happens to them after they’ve healed a person? I’m just curious.

Tech genius Noah Kim works day and night to keep the survivors at Blue Mountain Base with lights, power and hot water. He’s also working on a top secret project to help keep them safe. He’s tired, stressed and under pressure—and one woman adds to it all. An annoying, infuriating redhead he calls Captain Dragon.
Captain Laura Bladon lost everything she cared for in the alien invasion: her loving family, her Navy SEAL fiancé and her military career. Since then, she’s been numb, her feelings encased in ice, and she’s dedicated herself to her job as chief interrogator and running the base’s prison. But one person can get under her skin in an instant—arrogant, brilliant Noah. He’s the one thing that makes her feel—and that makes her very afraid.
But as Laura helps Noah on his project, the two are drawn irresistibly together. As they head into the desert with Hell Squad on a mission to a hidden alien outpost, sparks fly and a passionate desire is uncovered. Both are holding onto past hurts, scared to take the risk of loving again…but when the unthinkable happens, it changes everything…and Laura and Noah must find the power to save themselves, their friends and their love.
