“Your mother’s opiates are coming from Jose Herrera’s distribution network.” My pulse races as my stepfather speaks these words. Because taking on the Herreras also means taking on Diego.
Reckless, and hardened by a volatile past, Victoria does not see a future with Diego Herrera as a realistic option. As their childhood friendship ignites, they find themselves on opposite sides of a bloody feud between the two most powerful families in Mexico City. And she’s a Moreno now—brought up to be the secret weapon nobody suspected.
But Victoria can’t deny the attraction. Diego’s commanding muscles, the coarse, dark hair of his solid chest, that rugged scar above his sensuous lips…
Loyalty is in the eye of the beholder.
My absolute favorite genre is dark, romantic suspense. Hard Trigger is definitely that. The female lead, Victoria is a guns-blazing badass, who refuses to back down from anyone who may give her a run for her money. Diego is her childhood sweetheart, whom she tries to stay away from. Victoria refused his proposal and walked away, but Diego doesn’t want to take no for an answer. With his uncle being the head of the drug cartel, he is a man who has many targets on his head. Diego will see to it that he uncle is safe, even if it means keeping him safe from Victoria. If you are looking for a cute romance with an adorable HEA, you won’t find it here. This is a dirty tale or revenge.
I must admit that Hard Trigger was not what I expected it to be. I was lost quite a few times, re-reading parts and then flipping back to make sure that I didn’t skip something. I even went back and read the synopsis and description to make sure that I wasn’t missing something, or maybe it was second in a series. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. There seems to be quite a disconnect and at times felt rushed and yet the beginning was slow. It’s hard to describe and I desperately wanted to give this book a four, although it lacked the “oomph” and “wow factor” for me. I would absolutely give S.L. Hannah another chance and see what she will put out next.
