Bombs in the forms of human beings! Whoa nelly, say that again. Yup, this book is about humans that are being turned into walking, talking bombs. Touch these poor souls and boom! Talk about freaking scary as hell.
Trigger by first time author Jessica L. Webb is an action packed adventure. She does not write like a newbie, Wedd has a great writing style, and her story telling is outstanding. I started this book late one evening and read well into the night. This book grabbed my attention, and even though I needed to go to bed, I had a hard time putting it down. With that being said this book is frighteningly good!
Kate Morrison is the Chief Resident of Vancouver East Emergency Room. Kate’s entire world is thrown the moment Joe Caglioni walks into her emergency room. This walking human bomb is suffering and in a terrible amount of pain but insists on not being touched by Dr. Morrison. Adding to the chaos is the appearance of Sargent Andy Wyles of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. She has just showed up insisting the same thing, no touching the patient. Goodness, so what does any great doctor do, heck yeah, she hits Joe right in the chest to restart his heart, she will not stand by and watch someone die without giving it her best shot at saving them. Guess what the bomb did not detonate! Without spoiling the book I will say Kate has a special gift that resulted out of tragedy. Kate and her special attributes are now a thrust into a mystery which she along with Sgt. Wyles must race to solve. Who is making this army of human bombs and what is their diabolical plan?
The book reads very well and is full of heart pounding, adrenaline racing moments. I have zero clue if human bombs can be actually made, but Webb 100% sold me on the possibility through her story. I was held captive throughout the book, desperately needing to know how this was all resolved. While the romance is very good, it is not the whole focus of the book. Let me say what romance there is in Trigger is utterly fantastic. So subtle and extra sexy. This book has action out the wazoo, but it doesn’t stop there. Mystery, intrigue and a fantastic couple are in full force as well.
