Title: Snakebite (Alpha Squad #1)
Author: Heather Ramsay
The Alpha Squad—an elite United Nations military unit tasked with stopping the world’s most dangerous arms dealers. Their existence is shrouded in secrecy, hidden away in the New Mexico desert.
Phoenix is their newest recruit. Where she came from, nobody knows. Not even Phoenix herself. Amnesia has left her with no past, no identity. The squad is all she has. She wants to prove she belongs there – to the other soldiers, to herself, and to her commanding officer, the formidable General Cobra. Cobra is cold, hard, ruthless. And Phoenix knows he doesn’t trust her.
When they are sent to Colombia together on an assignment, something begins to change between them. They begin to form a friendship, an understanding, and maybe something more.
But Phoenix is about to learn that the past can’t stay buried forever…

I love books that feature a strong heroine and Phoenix was definitely it. The head of her squad, Phoenix, along with Medic and Wolfe, hunt down criminals under the order of their leader, the mysterious Cobra. The action at the beginning of the book is a real hook but as the story continues, the mystery deepens as Phoenix’s past is revealed and how it connects to her future in the squad.
Definitely a must read for fans of action and suspense.
