In the middle of an alien invasion, a big, tough, tattooed former mercenary is finally going to chase down his woman.

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 a

A cute novella.

Loved Hemi, but wanted to smack Cam with all her ruminating about her parents' failed love!

Looking forward to Ash's story! ;)

Four and a half
This series has always been action packed with delicious heroes and thoroughly evil aliens. Ms Hackett continues to imagine vile absolutely grotesque alien creatures and the newly discovered Creepers are possibly the most horrendous weapon that the Gizzada have released in their attempt to colonise Earth. Still the squads that protect the Enclave work hard to track down and destroy their enemy but what's the point in surviving if there's no one left to love you?

Originally published at Reading Reality

Science Fiction Romance (SFR) has to walk a tightrope. It has to have convincing and consistent SF worldbuilding, AND it has to have a romance at its heart. For the most part I absolutely love this author’s SFR and her action/adventure romance, but this particular entry didn’t quite work for me.

While on that one hand Hemi feels like it is intended as the reverse of Theron, the two stories may just have come out too close together for me. Both romances featu
YES! I love that Hemi is this bad assed guy who has a sense of humour and a huge streak of loyalty. Oh yea, and we can't forget his healthy dose of never give up! I love him! And yup, he has a brother .....squeal! Our poor emotionally wounded Cam gets a really good run for her money and I loved it! Great addition to the series in which I am still at the point of please never end!
‘Hemi’ officially ushers in the Berserker squad and I’m glad we’ve come a way with this particular group of wild and rough-riding people. When they first appeared, they seemed to be a bunch of hairy things closer to grunting apes than humans who rode souped-up motorcycles that were used as mini-weapon-launching platforms to combat the aliens; which is sort of cool, but probably not quite the swashbuckling type of heroes I could envision. But Anna Hackett’s development of the squad is quite remar ...more

This read was smoking hot and filled with lots of action. I been waiting for Hemi for a while .
The first Beserker book and it did not disappoint. Cam has been fighting her attraction to Hemi for a while now. Hemi finally wears her down and makes her confront her fears of relationships.

Things are really heating up with the aliens. The creepers are creepy and would be a terrifying way to die.

4 stars.

Hemi is one of the Berserkers but I really liked his steadfastness with regards to Cam. This instalment is supercharged with action and Hemi is like a cat with nine lives!!

Highly entertaining!

Received an ARC for a honest review
As we come closer to just what the Gizzida have in store for Earth, we get the first of the Berserkers stories. Hemi and Cam are like fire and gasoline and they've been dancing around each other from the start. Both are strong characters and while Hemi is well grounded, Cam has her demons and has a hard time overcoming them. Plenty of action to move the story with enough humor to make it a fun read.
Book Gannet
After thirteen books, fans of this series should know what they’re getting by now – a sexy, alpha male, a strong, smart woman and lots of evil alien shenanigans to balance out the sexy times. Plus, this time around, we get a closer look at those Berserkers, at last! This has been a long time coming, not just getting to know the squad better, but also because Hemi has been chasing Cam for a while.

I loved Hemi. He’s sexy and playful, pushy and dominant, but never over the top. He might like to be

Finally Berserker time

This story is now finally starting with a Berserker and his long-term crush.

Hemi and Cam are mightily attracted to each other, but while it is in this world now quite normal to have an affair, Cam shies away. What are Hemi’s motives, can she trust him? Also she is not that kind of girl that he seems to want.

Grown up in complete opposites without knowing it, the tough Cam, accustomed to being and solving everything alone is chased by stubborn, fearless & protective Hemi

Cam has no idea what the New Year will bring, but Hemi does, at least as far as Cam is concerned. While Hemi has a strong sense of right and wrong, he knows the right woman will be worth the trouble and for him Cam is that person. All he has to do is convince her of that, if only he can get her to stop running. Hemi prefers attitude and fire and he and Cam have been circling each other for months. The New Year’s Eve party is in full swing and the room is filled with hope; the one thing that no o ...more

Hemi is the first of the Berserkers to get a HEA!

Hemi and his fellow former mercenaries, bikers and ex-cons make up the infamous Berserkers.
They are hard core, Alpha to the nth degree and maybe not bring-home-to-mum kinda men but they get the job done and you can rely on them to blow the Gizzida back to wherever they came from!

Cam is a top-notch soldier, male or female. She is driven to the end of her well worn tether by a certain Kiwi Bad boy. He bedazzled her helmet for cripes sake! The man m

This spine-chilling action sensuous tale has you hooked from the start with gripping suspense, deadly dangers, intriguing banter, horrific alien monsters, a bit of jealous drama, a few surprises and a happy ever after that is built on trust and much devotion.

Hemi has been hot for Cam since he laid eyes on her but she avoided his advances like the plague. Hemi loves to drive her crazy with flirtatious innuendos making her want to play. She does not mi

HEMI! Man, I like this guy. The gleefully chaotic beserker has insane focus when it comes to the woman he's determined to woo. He's just...he's just Hemi, okay? He throws himself into everything he does whole-heartedly and gives it his all. It doesn't matter if it's regarding eliminating an alien threat or trying to convince Cam how perfect they'd be together. The guy goes all in and doesn't back down.

Cam, on the other hand, is a little more reserved. She's more guarded with her heart and more c

Finally! A Berserker 💃

Spoilers and some gushing ahead!

From the very first mention of the squad of Berserkers I was excited to read about them. There is nothing I love more than a bearded, tatted up badass and Hemi absolutely delivered.
From previous books we knew Hemi had been chasing Cam but she'd been avoiding him just as hard until a New Year's Kiss changed everything.
I adored Hemi, he'd been with OW before in the camp but from the time they entered the Enclave he's been alllllll about Cam and

Now that the earth is under the scourge of the alien invaders, Australian society is pretty much dead. All that are left are survivors, mostly soldiers and some isolated people, almost all of them young adults.
On that note, the series is rife with hook -ups🍌. Big

Excellent, as always!

Hemi, a Squad Three berserker, is never one to shy away from a challenge, and Cam, from Squad Nine, is definitely a challenge. Since he first saw Cam, he decided she was the one for him. She answers his smiles with insults, his complements by running away. He's resorted to teasing and pranks to get a rise out of her. But he's done with that now. With the world under attack by alien invaders, life is hard enough just surviving. Games are over. It's time to go after what he wa

Camryn McNab childhood memories were not good. Her parents fighting and no other family to support her had done a number on her. Not easy to trust and no long-term relationship. With the Gizzida threat over their heads all the time, she was yearning for some of the affect her mates had found but, doubts were clouding her mind. Hemi Rahia thought he had waited enough. He would go after the woman that had been running from him all the time. Loved all the drama between these two characters. The ber ...more

Hemi makes his move

This is a fantastic addition to the Hell Squad post alien invasion series. Hemi Rahia has been circling Camryn McNabb for some time. He's a berserker from Squad Three. She's a member of Squad Nine, which is made up of women. She's determined to keep things simple. He wants more. Then they get a lead on an underground Gizida transformation chamber and it begins to look like what little time they had could well be over.

I received an ARC of this story and have voluntarily chosen to read and review it. My review is honest and fair and in no way incentivised.

This story is awesome, as is the whole Hell Squad series. Anna has done a sensational job writing this series, and Hemi's story is I think, my new favourite, actually I think he's actually my new favourite book boyfriend. I don't want to say much and give anything away, so read and see if you think he's as perfect as I think.

This is one of the better entries in a long-running series. I'd suggest reading Theron before it, and probably the first book to get your bearings in the world. It's got punchy, easy-to-understand action scenes, some red-hot lovin', horrible monsters, and fascinating gadgets.
The leads in this story are very sympathetic. Hemi's a crazy risk-taker but also a teddy bear. Cam is a little less well-drawn, but I like her general confidence and competence. They're fun together and also clearly good fo

This is part of a series and might be a little confusing if it is read as a stand-alone. This story provides closer looks at some of the characters that have only been briefly mentioned in previous books. Unlike previous stories in the series with fast paced action from the first page to the last, this book has shorter bursts of exciting action spread throughout the story. The two main characters are both strong and interesting people who have a very steamy romance (not overly explicit or descri ...more

A fast-paced, FANtastic adventure!
There's nothing I love more than an adventure with a crazy-romantic hero and a kick-a** heroine (plus their pals). "Hemi" has it all!
Hemi Rahia, from Squad 3 (the Berserkers), is big, broad, bearded, brave, and bold. His mission: annihilate gizzida, make Camryn McNab his. Cam is tall, tough, tantalizing and terrible at relationships. Watching Hemi batter down her barriers - awesome! In the meantime those gizzida are up to some really gross, scary experiments. Y

How happy I am to finally read about the Berserkers and to see Cam lead the crazy tattooed badass onto a merry chase to win her heart. Those two were just hilarious and so lovable, as are their respective Squads.
I love that the survivors are bonding and living instead of merely surviving, bridging hope onto a destroyed world.
