Genre: Science Fiction Romance
Camryn McNab knows love is a lie. Okay, maybe not for everybody–her fellow soldiers on Squad Nine have managed to fall in love in the middle of a vicious alien attack. But it’s not for her. She comes from two people incapable of love. For now, her life is about survival, fighting to protect others, and kicking some alien raptor butt. What she doesn’t need is a certain wild, bearded, tattoo-covered soldier always underfoot, messing with her things, and driving her crazy. But no matter how hard she tries to outrun Hemi Rahia, she can’t seem to shake him, and a terrified part of doesn’t even want to…
A member of the Squad Three berserkers, Hemi knows his squad has a reputation for not following the rules and being a little wild. Former bikers, mercenaries, and…other less savory things, they fight hard and party harder. But Hemi has known for a while now that there is only one woman for him. One courageous, sexy, attitude-filled woman he wants to claim as his own. But he has to catch her first.
Tasked with a top-secret mission deep in alien creeper territory, Hemi and Cam will fight side-by-side to achieve their dangerous goal. Their chemistry is off the charts, but persistent Hemi wants more than Cam’s body…he wants her heart and soul as well. As their battle with the aliens turns deadly, they will have to fight not only for their love, but for their very survival.
This is probably one of my favorites of the Hell Squad series and I can’t wait for more berserkers in the future! Not to mention where the fight against the Gizzida is going to go. One part of me wants them to kick the alien’s ass and take back Earth but the other part of me doesn’t want this series to end.
“She’d accused him of being reckless, but maybe he just couldn’t help himself. If someone needed help he was going to help. He was a hero—with tattoos and rough edges.”
One thing I really enjoyed about Hemi and Cam’s relationship were all the moments that make a romance a romance. Hemi was always holding her hand, giving her little kisses and lingering touches. All the little things that make you really believe two people truly care for each other. I always enjoy Anna Hackett’s writing and her stories, but this one was particularity good and reminded me all over again why I love the Hell Squad series so much! The pacing was really spot on in this book and I read it in just a few hours because I couldn’t put the book down.
I absolutely loved Hemi and had no idea I needed the berserkers in my life this badly; I can’t wait to read about the others! But back to Hemi…he was so confident, charming, and cocky in the best possible way. He’s wanted Cam for a long time and he’s determined to have her no matter how fast she runs. I loved that Hemi was so sure about his feelings toward Cam and he never doubted that she was the perfect match for him. Cam had a lot more trouble accepting that something with Hemi could last but that didn’t stop her from falling for him, she just refused to acknowledge what everyone else already knew. Sometimes though I just wanted to Cam to get out of her own way.
5 stars – loved it!
