“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 Review

This book has very little over 120 pages and it has an action to die for! And… it almost happens, I mean, not you …. But people, I mean characters. OK, I’ll shut up know!

Really now, for a short book, it has some crazy events happening that will keep the reader hooked on page turning. It happened to me at least. There is some (SOME!) tension between the main characters, they want to be together but they can’t because their families won’t allow it. However they constantly fight for or towards each other and they hang to their feelings to be able to trust one another.

I loved the amount of detail we have in “Hard Trigger” and I liked the characters. The author built their background really well and managed to create strong personalities. Victoria is one badass woman. Her courage is matched only by the feelings she has for Diego and those feelings could burn cities. I loved them both!

The only thing I would complain is that too much of the story is told and not lived in the book while we read it. I wanted a bigger book, one that could capture more of their childhood and more of the conflict between the families. I wanted the inside scoop on one of the most feared family in Mexico. I wanted a tiny bit more!

But that does not mean this book is not worth your time! It’s one incredible story that will make you a prisoner of its covers. It is my first book by S. L. Hannah and definitely it will not be my last, for she has a lot of talent with words. 4 put of 5 stars!
