My first LP Dover read and I'm sure not my last (I look forward to the next book in the series). Written in dual POV, a lovely second chance romance with drama, love and passion. Preston is in love with Emma, but he has needs and to meet those needs he is taken away from her during their college years. Emma has never forgotten Preston, but she has no idea where he went 8 years years ago, he just upped and disappeared. 8 years later they meet unexpectedly and Preston is ignoring her, pretending he doesn't even remember her. But, circumstances are pushing them together and they can't run away from their feelings. Preston has got to come to terms with his past and let Emma into his current life to enable them to have a future. There's a killer on the loose and time is of the essence, Preston is determined to solve the crimes whilst protecting Emma. Fast paced and exciting. An enjoyable read that had me unable to put the book down.
I was sucked in from the start of this book. The prologue was GREAT and made me want to keep reading.
Preston is a dark, cold, trained assassin…. How cool is his job!? Not going into details, but I really hope people like him do exist! Preston is dark and heartless while Emma is light and happiness. These two met a few years ago in college but Preston just disappeared over night. Years later the fates bring them together through their job. Preston was such a moody bloke. I'd have given up on him! There's only so many times you can be given the brush off. Poor Preston has lost a lot since he and Emma last saw each other and Emma could be the only one to bring him back from the dark side.
I got chills and had a bit of a cry reading this story. There is murder, suspense and love in the pages waiting for you to read them. The writing is spot on. You understand their emotions and feel them.
I really enjoyed this book and I am excited to read Wades story.
Trigger by L.P. Dover is a standalone romance that flirts with darkness without allowing the reader to fully sink into it. It is romantic and angsty, a second-chance romance, and a book about retribution and making the guilty pay.
Emma is happy with her life. She has a great job that pays well for not having to do much and then she realizes why...
Preston has fully embraced his dark side and his addiction and believes there is no coming back for him but when his path crosses with an old almost-flame there starts to be a glimmer of hope. One he doesn't even see at first he is so bogged down in his addiction.
