Publisher's Summary

As the battle against the invading aliens intensifies, a group of bad boy bikers and mercenaries will stand and fight for humanity's survival....

Squad Three berserker Griff lived through hell, long before the alien invasion. Once, he'd been a dedicated cop, but then in a gut-wrenching betrayal, he ended up behind bars in a supermax prison. After the aliens invaded, he managed to escape and join the soldiers fighting back...and came face-to-face with his best friend's little sister - the bold, vibrant, off-limits woman he's always wanted. Now, the beautiful, tattooed Indy is his squad's comms officer...and she hates his guts.

Indy Bennett lost her parents and brother in the alien attack, and every day, she vows to suck the marrow out of life. She's also doing her bit in the fight as Squad Three's comms officer, even if it means seeing the man who broke her young heart. Griff was once her brother's best friend, a boy she adored, but now, she knows she needs to steer clear of the hard-edged man who still draws her like a moth to a flame. 

Griff vows to claim Indy as his. The only problem is, Indy is having none of it. As their fiery attraction explodes, they find themselves embroiled in the hunt for the aliens' unexplained octagon weapon and a mysterious survivor town where all is not what it seems. 

Both Griff and Indy will have to learn to let go of the hurts of the past if they have any chance of not just surviving, but having a future.

Great next book in the series

At #17, the team is just like a family. I feel like this one had more of the other characters involved too so it was doubly wonderful to catch up to everyone. The general flow is actually quite similar across stories but the characters themselves are what sells the stories. You want them all to succeed (and you know they will because, hello, HEA) but there are some bumps in the road they have to navigate first. I love Griff and Indy is awesome- such snark. I'd like to be her friend. The romance is great but the connection to the characters really makes you come back for more. Not to mention the action- Anna Hackett can really write great action sequences!

Overall, I really just love these books and I can't wait to read the next few as we wait to see how these Squads rid the earth of these horrible aliens.

The narration was great, as expected since these narrators, Samantha Cook and Jeffrey Kafer do the Hell Squad narrations. I really enjoyed their reading.

Second Chances

I loved getting to read about Griff and Indy in this book. They knew each other before the invasion, with Griff being her brother's best friend, but the dynamic has changed drastically in the last few years. Griff ( who never seemed to want her before) now seems to want something, and Indy ( the one crushed from her crush on him in the past) is the one giving off "stay away" vibes.

Good thing Griff doesn't take no for an answer, even while trying to protect both himself and Indy from both past and present dangers.

Standalone story, but enhanced when read in order of intended story arc. Anna Hackett has never disappointed in a single book I've read of hers.

Love it

BOOK REVIEW........
Ms. Hackett writes amazing stories with great characters (those you love & those you love to dislike), fast-moving plots, unexpected twist and turns, and, of course, hot alpha guys and strong women you can admire. The attention to details make the book come alive as you read it.

NARRATOR REVIEW.......
The narrator did a great job with the voice of the characters

Griff

Hell Squad is back with the spotlight on Squad 3's (the Berserkers) Griff and Indy. Of all the characters in this series, these two have known each other from childhood and their secrets and long buried emotions come in to play. Cook and Kafer do a great job bringing the action to life and the story a little closer to the final battle. Enjoy!

An exciting experience!

Griff is a member of a group called the berserkers. They are comprised of the renegades from society from before the invasion of the Gizzida aliens; for example, one was in jail, and another was a mafia enforcer, and they all ride tricked-out motorcycles. Griff was a former police detective, framed for a crime he didn’t commit, and spent time in a supermax prison because of it. His best friend’s little sister—Indy Bennett—always knew Griff was innocent, but since he broke her heart when she was younger, she has issues with him. Once burned/twice shy and all that… He always had a soft spot for Indy, but with the best friend bro code, he couldn’t act on it, and had to rebuff her interest. Unfortunately, Indy lost her whole family when the Gizzida aliens invaded. As a result, the bro code no longer applies. Now Indy is the communications officer for the berserkers, so they see each other a lot. The attraction still burns brightly, but Indy is staying away to keep her fragile heart intact.

The world-building in this series is incredible. There are a few convenient ‘facts’ that keep the story flowing, like how they always have enough parts to keep all of their technology working when the factories have been shut down since the invasion… If the reader can overlook this detail, then the story is actually quite good. You can imagine how difficult things would be for these survivors, which makes the risks they take for the survival of humans make a certain type of sense. The pacing is fast, the action is pretty steady and the characters make the story fun to read.

The narrators do a good job of capturing the action and conveying the emotion of the characters. You can feel the urgency when there is danger, and you can feel the camaraderie when they are hanging out during and after a mission. This book is fun to read and to listen to—especially if the reader is familiar with the storyline up until this point. Griff will make more sense if you read some or all of the earlier entries in this series.

A lot of healing in this book!

This is such a great book. Indy helps Griff heal in more ways than one. Anna Hackett writes the perfect blend of scifi, romance and adventure with a healthy dose of originality that keeps the reader more than interested.

Cook and Kafer made a good pair, however, they'r pronunciation of names conflicted-- an important detail. I wasn't a big fan of Cooks interpretation of a man's voice and at times her speech was a bit monotone. Kafer could've had a little more of an Italian accent when narrating the preview for Dom. Overall, I liked the combination of a Male and female narrator depending on the POV, and anything Anna Hackett is fantastic!
