Review: TRIGGER by J.L. Drake

March 19, 2018

Trigger by J.L. Drake
***This book ends with a small cliffhanger. Intended for 18+. May contain Triggers.***

I was raised by the Devil himself.

Formed into a man who was unreachable.

I went from the boy with bruises to the man with a trigger.

Killing is the only thing that calms the itch.

The demons inside were a constant battle…

…until she changed everything.

Problem is when you spend most of your time in the dark, is it smart to step into the light?

One-click Trigger's fine ass!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Flip the Switch stars!!

Every time I see a book get a crazy amount of 5-stars while I struggle to give it four, I have to wonder what I’m missing. And this time, I couldn’t see what everyone else did. While I enjoyed this story and was stupidly entertained by the drama of it all, I felt like I was missing something.

So here’s the deal… I felt like I was dumped into the middle of the story, not the beginning. There were instances that names and past situations were mentioned, but there was nothing to explain their context. I was left wondering if I needed to read a prior book to truly understand what was happening in this one.

While I didn’t feel a true connection to the main characters, Trigger and Tessa, I was beyond curious about Brick and Rail. Between the two of them, they showed me the brotherhood of the MC, the love they have for each other, and they made me laugh, which always works to help me love a story. I’m really hoping to get a firmer understanding of this story in the next book of this series, Demons. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing these characters again, especially with the sweet bloody scenes I’ve been subjected to. Trigger’s madness is extremely hot (and yes, I know I have a problem!).
