Synopsis (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.
Thoughts on Marcus: I do enjoy a rousing sexy sci-fi romp that involves alien invaders and the plucky fighters who stand up against them no matter the cost and somehow find love in the midst of the crazy. Basically, this book pushed all my buttons. Dead sexy crew of soldiers doing everything they can to keep the remains of their civilization safe? Check. Competent, focused civilian survivor trying to make a difference? Check. Sizzling chemistry? Check. Creepy aliens? Check.

Yep. I'm liking where we're going with this.

Elle and Marcus have been pushing down their attraction to one another for various reasons. When Elle is tapped to join the Hell Squad on a mission, everything comes to a boil. Marcus doesn't want her in danger, but he accepts that her skills are needed. Elle is scared, but she knows how important her expertise is to future survival of the human race.

And let's face it... end of the world sex is the best sex, amirite?!?!?

Awesome broken world, badass characters, and plenty of set-up for the future. Love it!
