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.

descriptionLOVE this cover. A superb representation of the hero and overall theme of the book. Great composition with good use of graphics. Interesting a bold typography. All in all a very impressive cover.description

descriptionI don't even know where to begin with this one. I mean the book started out with eye torture. Anything to do with eyes freaks me out so from the outset I was queasy. Luckily for me, we move on from the eyes to a more acceptable form of torture that I apparently have no issue with. So it was all good from

Dark, fast paced, thrilling MC book from the mind and keys of JL Drake.

Trigger was raised by the devil, mentally and physically abused for years. Trained to fight to near death while still in single digits he is now the President of the Devil's Reach MC. This isn't one of those soft, we aren't 1%-ers. They are hardcore. Run drugs. Kill with no thought. That last part something the President cherish and is an expert in. He does three things...leads his brothers in the MC, kills those who threate

Holy. Hell.

I had a feeling about this book. I only saw a small teaser image and the blurb, but something told me I was going to love this story. When it downloaded to my kindle, I jumped right in. J.L. Drake’s Trigger was everything I didn’t know I wanted!

Prince Charming is overrated, Trigger. People like us need people equally as fucked up. It evens shit out.

This is the epitome of an MC romance. I mean, I expect a certain level of dark, but there’s dark and then there’s dark. Trigger was in th

A Small Cliffhanger??

J.L. Drake is NUTS if she thinks the ending of Trigger is a small cliffhanger. Nuts I tell ya! Ugh, even though I HATE cliffhanger endings, I really liked meeting Trigger and his MC brothers and I guess Tess was ok too. ;)

"I reminded myself to check in with my past every once in awhile because it was a wise thing to do. It helped keep my guard up."

His past is what motivates him daily. Trigger is a force to be reckoned with and I loved every minute of it. As a big fan of th

Trigger is the story of a man named Trigger. Trigger has never had a chance to be anyone but who he is. Forced to fight from an age none should have to he is a very hard human being.

Tess is a beauty with a very complicated past. Her best friend Matt "Brick" gives her the escape she needs from her life and offers her a job and a place to stay.

I absolutely love Tess. She has spunk and will not back down while still being scared to death of certain things. I really hope we get more of her story i

Trigger is a dark, sexy, MC book that will leave you craving more. It starts with a bang and holds your attention the entire time.

I love MC books. Sometimes though, they have the same theme over and over, but this one was very different.

First you have Trigger………He’s rough, scary, and sexy. He knows what he wants and he goes for it. He doesn’t do relationships or love, he screws and then moves on to the next one. He kills and smokes pot and doesn’t care what others thin

"You weren't born a sinner, Trigger," she said softly, as if she forgot to include me in her conversation.
"Neither was the devil, but look how things turned out for him."

President of the Devil's Reach MC, Trigger has been raised to be a cold blooded killing machine, a weapon of destruction he doesn't blink twice at taking another's life or making them suffer. No remorse, no regret Trigger is feared and revered in equal measure yet his club is unraveling at the seams. With club business being int

This story is deliciously dark. I devoured this book in one sitting and couldn’t put it down once. I will admit that at times I had to really concentrate to stop myself getting lost. I liked Trigger. Usually I cannot connect with characters as dark as Trigger but I truly adored him. Although he was dark and dangerous, I felt like he was slightly insecure. He was brought up to act the way he was hence why he became the devil. The way he had been brought up he didn’t know how to be anyth

HOLY HELL! JL Drake has some wicked in her! If you have ever read her other books... you know she likes to shake things up and has a bit of a dark side! Well hang on for this ride because she unleashes it all in Trigger!!

There is no easing you into this story... She starts out strong and dark and wild and only moves it up many levels from there!!

We meet Trigger...President of the Devil's Reach MC, a trained fighting machine groomed by the devil to kill at the flip of a switch. He can not be tou

Trigger grew up with a home life that was so bad, that it was like he was raised by the devil himself. The mental, and physical abuse twisted him up inside, so now he battles severe demons on a daily basis. He's now the President of the Devil's Reach MC, and he runs it with an iron fist. And no woman has ever gotten past his walls, until he meets his VP, Brick's best friend, Tessa, who is now working for him. He certainly doesn't need any distractions with two different MC's plotting, not to men ...more

I enjoyed this book so much I want to read everything by this author and can't wait for the second book in the series.

Tessa has a mysterious past that has her running from it, Brick or Matt, an old friend, helps her to escape and brings her into the Devil's Reach MC where she meets the president, Trigger!

This story has plenty of aggression and violence but not overly so, it has everything and more that you expect from an MC story. There is no nonsense drama and action

It is no secret that I love a good MC romance and if it is dark as well, well then that makes it even better. Trigger is the first book in the Devil’s Reach series and it was a pretty good start to the series. It took me a bit to really get into it but once I did I didn’t want to put it down. The dynamic and strength of the relationships of not only Trigger and Tess but all the members of the MC was strong, even when they have a mole they are not to be messed with. From the start y

My first read by this author and after thi I can't wait to read more, especially the next one in this series.

Trigger is a dark, gripping MC book that will leave you wanting more. Be warned it does end on a cliffhanger, its not a major cliffhanger like some books but its still a cliffhanger for those who like to wait till all parts are out before reading.

Trigger was my perfect bad boy. Straight away I fell in love with his character and his relationship with Tessa. The whole story entra

J.L. Drake takes us on a heart-pounding, breathtaking, insane ride with Trigger. This book had me glued to the pages, putting it down occasionally to remind myself to breathe. Its fast paced, well written, and detailed so perfectly, you feel as if you are a fly on the wall, just watching it all happen.

Tess, a strong, independent woman. She's incredibly brave and tough. *I* fell in love with her. Trigger is dark, brass and a fighter. Literally and figuratively. I loved watching Tess f

Josie's Review

This is the first time reading a MC story written by this author and I had to gather my thoughts after reading it. The first page literally made me cringe but holy cow what a ride this was. What I love about a good MC read is the darkness, grit, angst, violence and the hot and heavy sex they usually have. This one had it all. I absolutely loved every single page of this book. This book was well written, the plot was complex and the overall flow was perfect for this story. The main

J. L. Drake has done it yet again! Another book that I didn't want to put down even after I finished it. I fell totally in love with trigger and his bad boy reputation and I love how Tess doesn't cut him any slack and gets brought in just like part of the family. Drake has brought in so many parts that make you really feel like you live in the story with them!! I can't wait for more of this great story!!

I know better than to start books that have a cliffhanger and I knew I should not have started this until the second book was out but I read the first chapter and I couldn't put it down so I kept going and now I'm mad because I don't know when the next book comes out. But I know that this was great and I cannot wait for the second one.
