Blog Tour – Heroic Measures by Marie James

 Release Date: August 3
 

Opposites don’t just attract.

They captivate.

They entice.

They beckon.

As the medic for the Blackbridge Security team, he was just fine hanging out at the office in his spare time.

Jude Morris was…boring.

He didn’t need excitement.

He wasn’t a thrill-seeker.

Then he met a woman who was.

Parker Maxwell, the only woman able to captivate, entice, and beckon him, was his antithesis.

The up to his down.

The light to his dark.

The hot to his cold.

He couldn’t take his eyes off of her.

She didn’t seem to notice him.

It’s going to take heroic measures for this guy to win the girl.

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

Review – Heroic Measures by Marie James

56572331. sy475

Heroic Measures; Blackbridge Security #6 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 3, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Opposites Attract/Virgin Hero/Contemporary Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wren and Whitney are going to have to share the first place spot with Jude and Parker. I am over the top smitten with the newest Blackbridge couple.

I adore virgin heros when reading. There is something about a shy, inexperienced, possible late bloomer hero that is just fun to read and I don’t get to read it enough. Jude Morris is a conglomeration of several things that brought him to the age of thirty-one…that’s right!! Thirty-one without any experience and he is ripe for experiencing everything at the hands of Parker Maxwell who happens to love a shy, coy man.

Parker is the complete opposite of Jude. She’s bold, knows she looks good, and has zero qualms about seeking a bed partner, and her real kryptonite is a man just like Jude. However, she is not into relationships. Never has been and never plans to be. One amazing night with Jude might change everything and puts Parker into a tailspin, but running is what she does best, the question is will Jude catch her?

These two were fun and super steamy. Jude’s quiet soul draws out Parker’s inner spotlight and together they shine.

Synopsis:

Blog Tour – CALCULATED RISK by Marie James

 Release Date: May 11

 

Calculated Risk (Blackbridge Security, #5)
As the fixer for Blackbridge Security, Quinten Lake is the man that comes in and cleans up after people make stupid decisions.

 

Which means he didn’t want to be the one teaching lustful women gun safety.

There were guys on the team better suited for the task.

Get in and get out, that’s his motto, something he lives by not only at work but also in his personal life.

And he could be doing just that if it weren’t for the internet.

But if #BlackbridgeSpecial wasn’t trending online he would’ve never met Hayden Prescott.

He wouldn’t be wondering why she won’t make eye contact with him.

He’s supposed to teach her the skills to protect herself, but his ego is encouraging him to be her means of protection.

She isn’t impressed, and he’s left wondering if she’ll ever open her eyes and finally see him.

Review – Calculated Risk by Marie James

56572335. sy475

Calculated Risk; Blackbridge Security #5 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 11, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Security/Suspense Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold StarsThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1368-6.jpg

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

We return to the security world of Blackbridge and all those hot men who make the world a better place.

Calculated Risk is a slow burning romance between Quinten Lake and Hayden Prescott, two very different people when you look at them from the outside. Quinten is a gentle giant of a man who is a problem solver covered in tattoos and a beard. He works with a lot of high profile cases, your hollywood starlets, government screwups, basically he has the patience of a saint when he’s able to come in and clean up all of their mistakes. Where as Hayden is a petite woman with a fiery attitude, but works as an accountant in her nine to five job and normally dates boring intellectuals.

These two most likely would never have met under normal circumstances, if it wasn’t for the home invasion that Hayden was a victim of which in turn caused her best friend to sign her up for a gun safety class at Blackbridge Security. 

Taking back control of her life isn’t easy and honestly, being the victim of anything traumatizing isn’t easy to come back from, however, a large portion of this story revolves around gun safety and taking back part of yourself. As much as I’d like to focus on the part of the story that was lacking around the suspense of why the home invasion happened (this was my tiny ding in my 5 star rating) and then later revolving around more of what was going on in Hayden’s life, I really, really respected everything else. With the way the world is going and everything in the news I truly enjoyed reading this.

I felt a true connection to Hayden and how she approached gun safety class. I’ll be honest, I was walking in her shoes. I felt everything she was, right up to the point of her handling a gun because I’ve never done this, but I could still imagine those same trepidations that she felt. I also respected Quinten immensely. He was patient and caring and very respectful of every woman who was in his class. As much as Quinten originally complained about teaching, he was actually the perfect team member to do it. 

Lastly, my favorite part is always revisiting past characters and of course my favorite among favorites is Wren and Puff Daddy. They are there as well as several other gorgeous team members. I’m also very excited for the next book because we get lots of hints dropped here and it looks to be juicy.

Overall read 4.5 stars

Review – Truth Be Told by Marie James

56129547. sy475

Truth Be Told; Blackbridge Security #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Second-Chance Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I love these guys at Blackbridge Security and always enjoy the love story mixed with an intense story. In Truth Be Told Marie James takes a step away from her suspenseful tale and gives us a story about second chances and learning to forgive after a lifetime of lies and betrayal.

Ignacio Torres broke his girlfriend, Tinley’s, heart when they were in high school. He did it to protect her and to make sure she never came looking for him. When they were seniors in high school he had no future, no way out of the tiny town they lived in and nothing to offer her but a life of poverty. When he returns to his home town after thirteen years he knew he made the right decision when all he sees is broken down buildings, homelessness and a town even more in despair than even he remembers. The first moment he second guesses that decision is when he sees a teenage boy that resembles him walking behind the only woman he ever loved.

Tinley was broken when Ignacio left. He obliterated her heart and tore their relationship to shreds, demeaning and belittling everything they shared. There was no question in her mind that a man who had no desire to care about her would not care about the child they created. Thirteen years passed and time wasn’t easy on her as a single mother, but her stubbornness has never allowed her to quit or give up. Alex, her son, is hers and she loves him and would never take back her time spent with Ignacio even knowing how it all ended. However, when Ignacio shows up on her doorstep she’s angry and scared. She won’t allow him to take away her son and forgiving the man who suddenly appears is going to take time. The idea of some big happy family will never happen because she doesn’t know if she can ever forgive him.

Both Tinley and Ignacio are in a state of stubborn anger towards each other for a lot of the story. So while this is a second chance romance, even more than that it’s a story about forgiveness and really learning how to communicate. These two people have a son, who is in the middle trying to navigate his parents while learning about their new dynamic as well. I like how he processed things as he learned about the history on each of them and in turn really gave his parents things to think about.

Of all the books in the Blackbridge series, this one doesn’t have the suspenseful/action aspect, but the relationship growth between all of the characters made this story just as good and a worthy part of the series.

As a former FBI agent, Flynn Coleman was made for his work with Blackbridge Security.

He’s highly trained, has a skill set meant for analysis and investigation, and meant to do important things.

Yet, he’s chasing a twenty-year-old starlet’s daughter around New York City because the spoiled brat never learned how to behave.

Remington Blair doesn’t need a babysitter, but her parents insist.

Keeping Flynn Coleman on his toes will be the most fun she’s had in a while.

Besides, just hearing him call her name with that accent is enough to keep her running.

Contingency Plan; Blackbridge Security #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The sexy men of Blackbridge Security have returned, but this time instead of chasing danger Flynn Coleman, former FBI agent, has been sent to sent to chase a young starlet around NYC.

Flynn is used to undercover operations, investigation, and danger around every corner. What he’s not thrilled about on this new mission is babysitting a twenty year old and basically keeping her locked in her mansion. This is not putting his skills to use, not to mention the strong pull he feels towards her, which he refuses to act upon. He’s been there and lost his career over a woman and he never plans on having that happen again.

Remington Blair has only had people in her life that use her for her fame, her money, or her status. She’s never had anyone, not even her parents, spend time with her just because they want to. When Flynn arrives as her new bodyguard and he shows her a side that she’s never experienced, she decides that the chase is finally worth running for.

These are two people who both have huge trust issues in their past, but who also love the cat and mouse game…it pretty much makes them perfect for each other, if they can learn to trust one another. Remi brings out Flynns growly possessive side, which is super sexy and on the flip side for the first time in Remi’s life she learns how to care for someone else, which is also huge step in taking care of herself.

While Contingency Plan doesn’t have as many suspenseful moments as the predecessor novels it is still a wonderful story with a slow burn that will warm your insides as their story unfolds. Also, like the past Blackbridge novels, it is full of great humor and lots of great looking men to drool over.

𝐒𝐡𝐨𝐭 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐚𝐫𝐤 𝐛𝐲 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐞 𝐉𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐊𝐔!

As an IT expert and hacker extraordinaire, Wren Nelson is no stranger to discovering all sorts of secrets online.

He’s a warrior…when he’s behind his computer, that is.

And awkward at best in social situations.

His long hours with Blackbridge Security don’t really provide many opportunities to go out and meet people.

So what is he supposed to do when a wrong delivery—a questionably large box of bedroom toys—ends up in his hands instead of its intended target?

Online stalking has always been his go-to to accumulate information on people, but only seeing Whitney through digital displays isn’t enough. Approaching her doesn’t seem like the best plan either.

What he doesn’t know is that this woman is possibly the only one in existence able to give him a run for his money.

Shot in the Dark; Blackbridge Security #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wren and Whitney’s story will make you giggle and get you hot, both things I absolutely love while I’m reading. 5 ★’s just isn’t enough to give this fun and smexy read!

I knew when I originally met Wren I was completely smitten with him, but that word doesn’t even begin to describe how much I tripped and stumbled head over heels in complete love with this intelligent, witty, filthy talking bird owner, and closet freak in the sheets. Wren is the absolute best. A nerdy wet dream who checked all of my boxes and I love every inch of him!!

Wren Nelson is the intelligence\IT\hacker piece of the puzzle to the Blackbridge Security team. He’s the best in business, but someone with his IT skills doesn’t exactly have high quality social skills. Awkward is his middle name and when he does leave his computer his social time is usually spent with his grandmother. So when he becomes infatuated with the other W. Nelson living in his building he’s just a tad shy and the thought of meeting her in person makes him sweat. Wren instead decides to stalk her online and hack into video feed and watch her through security cameras, instead of talk to her face to face. That is until a chance encounter and Puff Daddy’s potty mouth gives him an opening to take a chance.

Whitney Nelson doesn’t get out much, or really ever, she prefers the safe haven of her apartment and loves that everything can be delivered, but one of the few times she’s in the elevator in her apt she runs into a sexy man carrying a filthy talking bird. Call her instantly whipped and then call her surprised when it’s the same man she’s been gaming with and falling for online. When she discovers that he works for a security company and he can help her out of the jam she’s currently found herself in, her shy gamer is just too perfect to be real.

Wren and Whitney are too adorable and also too filthy for words. Yes, two complete opposite sides of the coin which makes them perfect for each other. They both would probably have never met due to their socially awkward and shy personalities, but together they are able to complete each other in ways they never thought were possible. Their darker prolactivities shine when they are with one another and yet they are also sweetly aware of how self conscious they are and aren’t afraid to talk about it.
I seriously can’t tell you how much I love this vulnerability about both of them.

Everyone should have a partner that they can truly be themselves with express their deepest desires, fantasies, wants and needs and still be loved for their less than stellar moments, like tripping over their own feet. Wren is one my favorite book boyfriends!

(A standalone within a series)

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is the beginning of Blackbridge Security and all the hot men who work there…yum.

Deacon Black was married and burned by his ex years ago. His ex’s best friend, Annalise Grimaldi is collateral damage in that relationship. When Anna needs help the only person she thinks to call is Deacon, even though he isn’t exactly happy to see her name pop up on his phone.

They definitely had more of a hate-hate relationship through most of the book so a lot of their chemistry didn’t immediately pop off of the page, but when Anna was with Deacon’s staff she really made them shine and I am really looking forward to their stories because of those interludes.

While Deacon tried to track down the men and his ex-wife who were hunting her and Anna he was trying hard to not to fall for the woman whom he’d basically overlooked for most of his life. Anna was turning out to be someone he never expected and someone he desperately wanted.

Anna shouldn’t want her best friend’s ex-husband, but she was having a hard time convincing herself why not. He was everything she didn’t remember him being years ago and his helping her now meant the world.

This is just the beginning of some very hot security men and I’m excited to visit again.

(P.S. I really hope Wren is next, he’s so geeky sweet and his interactions with Anna are beyond priceless)

Bully romance has never been so good…” Kristie, GR Reviewer

He can’t stand anything about her, but can’t keep his hands off of her.

Frankie

I wasn’t looking for him.

He found me.

With his sexy smirk and irresistible body.

I wanted nothing to do with someone like him.

Judgmental and brooding.

So full of himself.

But now, I’m stuck playing the fool.

Falling for him.

And losing it all.

If only for one night.

ZEKE

Stuffy, rich, entitled.

The kind of girl that gets what she wants.

When she wants it.

And I want nothing to do with her.

Yet, I can’t stay away.

I’m drawn to her kindness and compassion.

Her beauty.

She holds me when the pain won’t subside.

And now, if I can help it, I’m going to hold on to her…

A bully romance that has a great push and pull and up and down of emotions. Catch Twenty-Two has a broken, vulnerable bully that not only broke my heart over and over, but also made me cry for the girl who he was broken up over.

Zeke and Frankie had that magnetic chemistry where they were constantly being pulled together and when the magnets were correctly aligned they couldn’t stay apart, but if the magnets were flipped they definitely pushed each other away.

Zeke was probably the most vulnerable bully I’ve read to date. He was already broken by life, taking on the burden of his family, having lost their ranch and home, and then watching his father deteriorate right before his eyes. Zeke was angry at circumstance, at things he had no control over, and lastly at his own hormones when he finds himself attracted to Frankie when she arrives for the summer to live at the ranch Zeke works at. It doesn’t help that his family keeps telling him that he’ll adore Frankie and they will be great friends and probably more. He was building up to already dislike her before she arrives and his attraction to her just adds fuel to the fire.
Is Zeke spout vile words? Yes. Is he mean? Yes. Does he care about his family? Yes. Does he loathe treating Frankie horribly? Every single time, but he still does it because deep down…well, he has a lot of emotional reasons which I won’t give away here, but he really is just a broken boy.

Frankie went out to Utah for the summer to visit her grandmother and was hoping to escape the bullying she received while living at home. She never thought she would receive it from the beautiful boy working on her grandmother’s ranch, especially since she speaks so highly of him. Zeke turns out to be two different people; a kind, sweet boy in front of everyone else and a vile, mean bully when they are alone. The hot and cold gives her whiplash all summer until she leaves and finally returns back to Westover where she believes she will never have to see him again. Little does she realize that he will be standing in the hallways of Westover Prep on the first day of school. Which Zeke will she be greeted with, the good or the bad?

As much as you might want to hate Zeke, all I wanted to do was give him a hug. His wounds were so fresh and he really did inner-reflect a lot. He carried guilt and self loathing over how he behaved, but he couldn’t stop himself from hurting those around him. The lion with the thorn in his paw that lashed out in anger.

Frankie is also no delicate flower. She holds her own against his mean behavior, which is why he is continually drawn to her and has a hot and cold shoulder as well. She’s grown up with boys very similar to him, but he’s also new in his emotional state.

I adore this couple and really look forward to updates going forward in the Westover Prep world.

Synopsis:

He can’t stand anything about her, but can’t keep his hands off of her.

Frankie

I wasn’t looking for him.
He found me.
With his sexy smirk and irresistible body.
I wanted nothing to do with someone like him.
Judgmental and brooding.
So full of himself.
But now, I’m stuck playing the fool.
Falling for him.
And losing it all.
If only for one night.

ZEKE

Stuffy, rich, entitled.
The kind of girl that gets what she wants.
When she wants it.
And I want nothing to do with her.
Yet, I can’t stay away.
I’m drawn to her kindness and compassion.
Her beauty.
She holds me when the pain won’t subside.
And now, if I can help it, I’m going to hold on to her…
Forever.

I don’t know a dang thing about farms or crops or smelly animals. Westover isn’t exactly urban, but since it’s in the center of Colorado, we have mountains and steep upgrades rather than mooing cows and clucking chickens running around.

Looking out the window only increases my annoyance. Other than a small house about a quarter of a mile away, there’s nothing but fields dotted with cattle as far as I can see. I can only imagine what it’s going to smell like around here when the temperatures increase.

I’m supposed to be up here resting, per Nan’s instructions, but sleep is the last thing on my mind. I’ve been here less than two hours, and I’m already bored out of my mind. An entire summer of doing nothing is going to be the death of me. I cringe with the thought, knowing just how lucky Piper is to have survived the crash. Tears sting the back of my eyes as a heavy sense of helplessness settles in my bones.

I’m considering taking a nap just to pass the time when an old pickup truck turns into Nan’s front gate, making its way down the winding dirt drive. Kicking up dust as it nears the house, the truck turns toward the barn rather than pulling up directly in front of the house.

“Thank God for small favors,” I mutter.

The last thing I’m in the mood for is meeting people. I know it’s going to happen sooner or later because Nan mentioned introducing me to a hoard of folks on the drive back from the airport. The entire town has been awaiting my arrival if I go by her excitement of me being here. Clearly, she’s been anticipating my visit and telling everyone who will listen.

My jaw practically unhinges when the passenger door opens.

“What do we have here?” I mumble, taking a step closer to the window for a better look.

The hottest guy we have at Westover Prep is Dalton Payne, but he’s the biggest jerk that walks the earth, hateful and vicious in his dislike of Piper and me.

Dalton has nothing on the dark-haired, boot-wearing stranger climbing out of the truck. Even from fifty yards away, his strong jaw and wide shoulders are the stuff fantasies are made of. Maybe my forced visit to Utah won’t be so bad. If I can’t go home to be with my best friend, at least I’ll have this guy to look at in the interim.

As if he can feel my eyes on him, the stranger turns his head, finding me standing in the window gawking at him. My first instinct is to dart away and hide behind the thick curtains, but his eyes are on me before I manage to move. I’m locked in his stare, unable to pull my eyes from his.

Like a bumbling idiot, I raise my hand and give him a quick wave. It’s something I’d never do back home, but Utah is different from Colorado. Nan assured me the people who live around here are hardworking, gracious, and kind. I’ve never found much of that back in Westover, especially not walking down the hallways of school.

This guy mustn’t have gotten that memo because instead of waving back or tossing a simple smile my way, his lips turn down in a sneer. He’s all the way across the yard, and I can still feel the hatred rolling off of him as he glares at me.

In return, I narrow my own eyes. I’m no stranger to hate-filled stares. I’ve spent the better part of my life hiding in the shadows, keeping to myself, and doing my best to stay off the radar of the spiteful people I go to school with, but it’s unnerving that even hundreds of miles away, this stranger seems to feel exactly the same way about me.

He doesn’t pull his eyes from me until the man driving the truck yells to get his attention. When he turns his face away, only then can I move, as if some connection has been broken.

I’m not one to focus on the bad things in life, having a defeatist attitude is a waste of time, but the malicious look that guy just gave me is making me want to reconsider my stance.

Anger and agitation settle inside of me. I haven’t been here long, but I don’t imagine there will be many people around that are close to my age, yet I’m not surprised. Of course the handsome guy helping on the farm would hate me at first sight. From experience, I know my tiny, pixie-like frame isn’t exactly what guys are looking for. Guys want girls with big breasts, tiny waists, and hips they can grip when—

I clear my throat as I turn from the window, refusing to let self-deprecating thoughts back into my head. I promised myself I’d be different this summer, and I’m sticking to it. Who cares if one guy on this stupid farm doesn’t like me? That doesn’t mean there aren’t other people I can make friends with. Nan mentioned a sweet boy named Ezekiel that she wanted to introduce me to, and I bet he’s even better to look at than the jerk at the barn. Besides, looks aren’t everything. Kindness and common decency go a long way in making someone appealing, and in reverse, a bad attitude and lack of compassion can make the most gorgeous guy hideous.

Refusing to let one stupid boy make me feel bad about myself, I lie down on the bed, taking Nan up on her suggestion for a nap. With any luck, when I wake up, he’ll be gone, and I’ll never have to look at him again.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A new twist on a bully romance. Dalton is unlike any bully I’ve read yet. A boy who not only instigated the bullying of a young girl, but also grew and festered those around him to be just like him. This is a person to dislike on every level and yet this is who the hero of the story is. Marie James set a challenge and I was curious to see how it played out. Could the ultimate villain be redeemed?

Piper, also known as Bloody Mary, thanks to Dalton, has been bullied her entire life. How the sweet, next door neighbor has put up with it for as long as she has is the ultimate mystery, but it is now senior year and she is looking forward to eventually escaping the monster who lives next door.

Dalton is the king of the school and everyone follows his lead. He’s always picked on Piper so everyone else does as well, that is until an almost fatal car crash wipes his memory and he has no recollection of anything past the age of five. He never once recalls bullying Piper and all he sees is a gorgeous girl living next door. Why do people keep telling him he’s such a bad guy? All he wants is to get to know his next door neighbor.

What would you do to have a clean slate of any mistake, wrongdoing, or blunder? The only thing is everyone else around you remembers exactly what you’ve done and you don’t. The one person you want is the one person you can’t have. This doesn’t make sense to your clean-slated mind. Perhaps that clean-slate doesn’t look so good anymore. Or are you willing to show that you are a new person?

This entire concept is very well done on both sides of that “what if”. How can you trust the ultimate villain and how do you earn that trust when you’ve been the villain?

One-Eighty will dig deep into a lot of issues you may not feel comfortable touching, but they are real issues that happen to teens today. Come out of the other side of the story and I think you’ll be happy that you stuck with Dalton and Piper and hopefully see more of what happens at Westover Prep.

PROLOGUE REVEAL

Prologue

Dalton

They tell me I used to love the color black.

There are many things from my past that I hate.

Myself and the dark color surrounding me are the two things leading the pack right now.

People whimper and cry beside me, and I’m just numb, so broken that my pieces can’t combine enough to form wetness in my own eyes.

I deserve this.

I deserve watching the love of my life with her ashen face and hands crossed on her stomach in constant repose as the preacher talks about her devotion to life and helping others.

I deserve the looks from her mother and father that speak of the million ungodly things they wish would happen to me.

I deserve the blame my own parents planted at my feet for my involvement in the steps that led up to today.

I deserve it all.

The torture.

The accident.

The getting my heart ripped from my chest because of an undiagnosed brain bleed that snuffed out the life of the most beautiful girl in the world.

She was fine when I left the hospital that day. Even her mother assured me she would be okay.

She didn’t deserve this.

She didn’t deserve the monster that tormented her daily.

She didn’t deserve to suffer at the hands of an idiotic boy and the army of bastards willing to hurt her at his command.

She deserved the world, and yet she gets a wooden box and six feet of dirt, all the while I’m left on earth without her.

I can’t do that.

That can’t happen.

Our story doesn’t end this way.

It should be me in that casket. Me leaving this world behind so she can shine in the bright light of the sun and live her life to all its glory.

It should be me.

It should be me.

It should be me.

My hand trembles as I reach into the inside pocket of my sports coat.

I’m not scared or afraid of what comes next.

It’s the anticipation, the thrill of joining her that makes my blood sing, the unused energy making my fingers twitch.

July sun glints off the barrel as I hold my salvation to my head and pull the trigger.
