It’s what I do.
It’s what I live for.
I’m no longer the Preston Hale everyone knew. I left that life and the people in it a long time ago the second I made my first kill. I wasn’t going to give in, but when I heard the screams there was no going back.
It triggered the pain, the need.
I knew what I had to do, and I did it well. But I never expected for Emma Turner – the only link to my past – to come back into my life.
She triggers a different emotion inside me, something I hadn’t ever felt.
It’s not a want to kill . . . but a need to CLAIM.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she began her literary journey she worked in periodontics, enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.She loves to write, but she also loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols. Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, and her standalone novel Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
I was excited to read Trigger because Ms. Dover wrote it and when I read the synopsis, I only got more excited! Trigger was a little darker than her other books, but I love a little darkness in my reads, so that didn't bother me at all. In fact, I loved that about it, but who am I kidding - I loved the whole story!
Preston might be a rough and tough bada*s, but Emma's no slouch herself - she's quite a force to be reckoned with. She doesn't take any crap from him and she's not afraid to go head to head with him and keep him in line. She's strong and she's sassy, but she's also sweet, patient, and understanding too. Emma is the bomb and I absolutely loved her!
Preston can be a turkey sometimes, but I love him anyway. He's got the whole dark, broody, and angry but anguished thing down. Preston is haunted by the past and taking justice for other people who have been wronged - it is the only way he knows how to live now. He's fierce and dark and even though he doesn't want to be affected by Emma, he can't help what she does to him. Preston might fight it at first, but once he's in, he's all in - he's protective and you can tell you how much he cares about Emma and loves her. He's truly a great hero and I loved him!
Trigger was a fast read to begin with, but there were times when I couldn't pull myself away and I flipped the pages as soon as I could and it just made me read even faster. It was full of heart pounding, suspenseful, steamy moments, it was heartbreaking and made my eyes sting with tears, but it gave me quite a few laughs too. It was an excellent, excellent read and oh my gosh, I cannot wait to read Wade's story next!
Trigger is the first book in the Circle of Justice series, it's told from Preston and Emma's POV, and they have an awesome happily-ever-after ending!
