Synopsis (Goodreads):
In the aftermath of a deadly alien invasion, a band of survivors fights on…

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.
Thoughts on Roth: Hoo-boy! Roth and his team are out there fighting the good fight against the aliens that have decimated earth. YOU GOTTA LOVE THE MEMBERS OF THE SQUADS, MAN. They're dogged in their determination to find a way to bring down the aliens and take their planet back.

As one of the squad leaders, Roth is on the front line. While he has the best interests of the survivors at heart, he's a little ham-handed when it comes to trying to get information out of Avery. Mostly because the blank spots in Avery's memory are as frustrating for him as they are for her. Honestly, they're probably a little more frustrating for her. Imagine knowing you had important intel locked away in your head and being unable to access it. Intel that could help save countless lives. NO FUN.

As always, the aliens get more deadly at every turn and the heroics of the survivors get more thrilling. When the world is burning around you, you have to grab onto life as hard and fast as you can. These Hell Squad couples do just that and it's GLORIOUS!
