Victoria to me isn't a female James Bond, she's a killer on a mission for revenge. She's a kickass female in all things except Diego. Diego was once Victoria's love till family separates them for years. Victoria moved on to Renaldo. Tragedy happens to Victoria and Diego is back and wants her back. Diego wanted Victoria as much as she wanted him till his family interfered. He can't believe she moved on and now he'll do anything to get her back.

"An eerie silence engulfs the area. Like the silence I imagine engulfs you when you know that you’re at death’s door."

I’ve read a few reviews and they all describe this in the same way. This is a more intense and sexualized version of James Bond with a badass female lead character. And I agree with that fully.

Victoria is the female lead that we hope for in books. She takes care of business and doesn’t need a man to help her along the way. She can handle any situation that comes her way.

This story will leave you wanting more hot friction between Victoria and Diego. The cover and the title is perfect for this sweltering book. Victoria knows how to kickass to save her family, but when the hot Spanish Diego shows up, she forgets what mission she was on. I love the friction between the two families. They can't live together but they can't live without. Hannah knows how to light the room up. She makes you feel the raging fire between these two characters that burn a fire from just o ...more

Victoria is a woman on a mission, shoot to kill then worry about the aftermath well, after. I have read reviews that call her the female James Bond but I don't agree with that statement, James Bond is out to do good for everyone where Victoria is out for revenge for personal reasons. The person she wants dead is Jose Herrera because he is the one that is supplying her mother with drugs that she cannot stop taking.

Now here's the thing, Diego, was and if you ask me still is the love of Victoria's

This was one hot and steamy read. There was inching up to that point. You don’t get the slow burn you get from the majority of books. No, the author just simply put it out there and god do I love her more for it. It was truly a book of cat and mouse between the main characters. But you never knew who the cat was or the mouse. Which made it even more fun to read. Both making characters knew what they wanted and were willing to do what ever it took to get it. They didn’t care who they ran over to ...more

I wanted to give this story more stars I really did. But I felt I was missing something. I felt like I walked into the middle of this story and couldn't figure out what I was missing. I even went looking for another book thinking I was missing a first or prequel that went with this story. Nope, nothing. So I did read this book but I didn't enjoy it as much as I think I would have if I didn't have that feeling.

Reading the blurb for Hard Trigger had me very curious..I love all things cartel/organized crime related so I was excited to read this. With that being said I feel like I started in the middle of the story and I felt lost...I felt like I was missing something. I was very confused reading it. I really wanted to like Hard Trigger but I just couldn’t get into it. The only saving grace for me was Diego Herrera..he was so sexy and so macho. I looked forward to when he would pop up lol overall and sad ...more

I really like romantic suspense books; I always want something extra with the hot sexy scenes! This book has some action-filled scenes and hot ones too. The whole families feud and forbidden love, did the story really interesting. It was really good to see a badass female lead. Victoria is exactly that; fierce, badass and ruthless when it comes to fulfill her tasks! She was described as a female James Bond but I see her more as a mercenary killer, kind of an anti-hero sided with the bad

Hard Trigger: A Rogue Romance by S L Hannah
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First of all, I have to say that this book was such a surprise and completely explosive. There is an underlying raw energy throughout the story that refuses to be ignored.

The writing! I seriously don't understand how Hannah does it, but her writing just sucks you in. It is so easy to get lost in her stories. There isn't any rereading of the first paragraph, due to awkwardness. You are automatically pulled in from the first sentenc

REVIEW:

Hard Trigger is not your ordinary romance. Far, far from it.

Centered around the Mexican drug trade, it tells the story of Victoria, a woman who has chosen to enter the dangerous world of her stepfather's drug business. When she discovers her father was murdered by a childhood friend's uncle, head of a rival fa

This author is new to me and it’s always good to find new authors, especially who write your favourite genre-romantic suspense.

Victoria is an extremely determined young woman, desperate to kill Jose Herrera. Herrera is just as determined she won’t succeed, naturally! He heads a drug cartel out of Mexico City while Victoria’s stepfather is the head of the other leading family p, however, they are on opposite sides. Diego, Jose’s nephew, once Victoria’s best friend, is everywhere she is, thwarting

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

I will keep this short and sweet as there is absolutely no point in beating about the bush…this was superb.
I could bleat on about how I thought that Victoria was quite simply awesome and how much of a shame it was when her and Diego were separated but it doesn’t make much of a difference because without the detail…which I will tell you now that you’re going to have to read for yourself, it would make no sense to you!
I loved that Victoria was bada**, on a one-woman mission that she was not going

Victoria is out for revenge, and no man will get in her way. Yeah, this is a heroine that I can get fully behind, as she needs no help from a man to get it done. Although, there a few times that Diego comes in handy on the down low, but unfortunately, a bloody family feud prevents them from being together. So they light the sheets on fire, and off she goes with guns blazing, while he "tries" to keep an eye on her. Yeah, it's a complicated situation, that kept me turning that pages, with twists t ...more

A short action-packed tale. Diego and Victoria have a rather unconventional relationship, we are lead to understand that they grew up as friends together but fought their attraction for each other as they both battled with family rivalries. Victoria takes the modern day strong independent woman to a new level and is after vengeance again for those who have wronged her family. Diego tries to win her over and convince her that their love can overcome the family feud.

S.L. Hannah had me drooling with this cover. After reading the blurb for Hard Trigger, I was intrigued.

Victoria and Diego are separated by their families and actions of those around them. Their thoughts of love are left behind, until they meet again. The passion burns hot between them still, but they are on different sides of a war neither started.

The story itself was intriguing, the writing well done. But there was something

SL Hannah is a new to me author and o really love to read books by authors I've never read before. Hard Trigger was a well written book. It's short and fast paced. Victoria and Diego have known each other as children till their families separate them, they go on to meet later in their lives, but they are on opposite sides. While Victoria has plans of making Diego's Uncle pay for his deeds, Diego is busy thwarting every thing she does.

Would I try this author again? Sure I would. At time

I really enjoyed this book, I would have loved to see it as a full novel and not just a novella. But SL Hannah managed to jam pack this with action. I loved Victoria- she’s an incredibly strong woman whose mother married into a mexican cartel. Diego was the first person to friend her when she got to the country. Their love grew but had many plans from within their families that got in the way of their love. I loved how Victoria didn’t cave for love, she continued her revenge plan until it was do ...more

I was intrigued by the blub for this book but once I started reading I quickly felt like I was missing something. I even went to check that this wasn’t the second book in the series and I needed to read book one first. It isn’t a second book. The story its self is good. But, I just felt like it picked up in the middle. The more I read the more I felt like I was missing the beginning of the story. The book isn’t very long. Maybe she could make the story longer and fill in the missing bits. Overal ...more

This novella is a quick read and entertaining with its strong heroine, Victoria and dark hero, Diego.

Victoria as a character is not believable but then she is an ‘action’ type of heroine who knows all of the best ways to kill, maim and dispose of someone...anywhere. Diego has more mystery to him and is a little bit more believable..just a bit. That doesn’t mean I didn’t like these characters because I did and they were definitely explosive between the sheets as well.

A fun bit of make believe jus

3.5 I loved the idea of this badass, take no prisoners, passionate killing machine of a woman. Victoria is definitely all the above. However I was into her and Diego until I realized how incredibly toxic they were together. I mean this is no fairytale at all and it has that crazy mob feel but.... he's a dick lol Had issues with Victoria's disguises but I'm gonna let it slide. I will finish by seeing that the fifa sitch was just an odd end.

I love when an author takes a female heroine and can make her into this amazing vigilante. Victoria was definitely a heroine that you want to envision yourself as. This is definitely a second chance romance, as things are reignited with her last flame, Diego.
I’m not going to lie-this was super hard to follow at first. In my opinion, I’m going to dismiss it as the fact that it was simply just so intricate of a plot. If you find yourself struggling through the first part of this book,

I was given a chance to read this novella and I can say it was an intriguing read. I loved Diego and how much he tried to protect Victoria. And I love that she is a badass who doesn't need a man to save her.

The story it self is quit fast paced and at times I couldn't keep up, but I still liked it as a whole. I have to say I think the Spanish is why I'm giving it 4*

This is my first book by S L Hannah

The character Victoria is on a mission and nobody is going to stop her. That is until Diego comes back. There's bad blood between the 2 family's but the sexual tension is stronger and they want each other. The history between the 2 characters has twists, turns and a definite page turner. I was blown away when her dad told her that her mother was into drugs and getting them from another family. I would definitely recommend this book.

Victoria is definitely a bada** James Bond. She has a vendetta that she is determined to carry out at all costs.

Diego and Victoria have an explosive chemistry when they are together. He tries to protect her and discourage her from the vendetta concerning his Uncle Jose.

Hard Trigger is fast paced and the characters are flawless.
