Synopsis (Goodreads):
The battle of survival against the invading aliens heats up…but Hell Squad never quits.

General Adam Holmes’ life is dedicated to keeping his small band of survivors alive. On the run, with only Hell Squad and the other soldiers for protection, they are making their last dangerous drive to the secret stronghold of the Enclave. But there are a lot of aliens between them and their destination, and the survivors are tired, worn, and at the end of their limits. Adam feels the pressure dragging him down, but as their leader, he can’t be their friend and he can’t dump his burden on anyone else.

Long before the alien invasion, Liberty Lawler survived her own personal hell. Since then, she’s vowed to enjoy everything life has to offer and she’s managed to do that, even in the middle of an apocalypse. She does what she can to help the survivors in her convoy, but one man holds himself apart, working tirelessly for them all. Liberty can see Adam is at his breaking point and she vows to tear through his rigid control and save him from himself.

But the aliens are throwing everything they have at the humans, trying to stop them from reaching the Enclave. Adam will find his resolve tested and the pressure higher than ever. But it will be one beautiful woman—one who won’t take no for an answer and who worms under his skin—who can save them all and give him the strength to go on.
Thoughts on Holmes: Dedicated (and surprisingly sexy) General Adam Holmes is up to bat this time. And, BOY, is he in for a surprise when it comes to Liberty and the pull she has on him. (Which just goes to show, you can't keep a good couple down even when aliens are trying to take over the planet.)

Okay. The survivors of the alien attack on their base are reaching their breaking point and Adam and crew are trying their hardest to get them to the Enclave and the safety it will provide. To saw Adam is a little on edge would be putting it mildly. Like any good leader, he takes every person they can't save personally and the weight of it all is threatening to drag him under.

Fortunately for him, Liberty steps in to help him unwind and things progress from there. *wink wink* No lie, they're a surprisingly sweet match. She's just what he needs to help him shoulder his burdens and he's the type of upright man Liberty had given up on after what happened to her in the past. Of course, it takes a while for both of them to get in the right headspace for a relationship, but they get there.

They get there.

As always, I'm loving the craziness of everything. Romance in the middle of an alien invasion works for me and I'm completely down to see more of these rough and tumble soldiers (both men and women!) find their special someone.
