    TRICK by Laramie Briscoe




    Title: Trick
    Author: Laramie Briscoe
    Genre: Contemporary/New Adult Romance
    Release Date: January 13, 2017


    Blurb

    A forced sentence leads to a reckless passion…….

    Hadley
     

    When my husband walked out on me over a year ago, it devastated me. When the divorce papers came, it killed me. When we had to sell our house, it broke me.

    But then he moved in with his new flavor of the month and told our daughter his new woman wasn’t into children. That pissed me off. 

    Now Riley feels abandoned, and I can’t make it better; no matter how hard I try. I’m desperate to help her adjust to the loss of a male figure in her life. The companion program that matches adults up with children who have loneliness and abandonment issues is my last hope.

    The counselors tell me he’s doing community service hours, and I ask to sit in on his meetings with Riley. The minute I see him astride the matte black Harley, I know neither my nor Riley’s life will ever be the same again. 


    Trick 

    Community Service. Two words I should be thankful for, but I’m not. I resent the hours it’s away from building my business. The two previous kids I'd been paired up with didn’t work out because their mothers were more interested in getting in my bed. This next match with a little girl is my last hope. Unless this kid works out, I’m destined to serve time. 

    When they push her into the room wearing pink converse with a black dress, her crazy curls barely held back by the barrette in her hair, and studious glasses on her face, I can tell she’s scared - of new people, of change, of being pushed aside. Something inside of me breaks, and I want this girl to feel wanted again. 

    What I’m unprepared for is meeting her mom. The second our hands touch, there are fireworks, bright lights, and a picture of the future I could one day have. The future I’ve never allowed myself to wish for. 

    Community service becomes more than a chore, more than time I resent for being taken away from me. In the months that follow, I realize they’re just like me: they’ve been abandoned, left behind by the world, forgotten by those who should love them. 

    Thanks to the one last hope in both our lives - we found the light in the darkness we’d been searching for.

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    Ooh I adored (Pa)Trick! He had made some bad decisions in his past but had paid his debt to society and was making moves to get his life on track. Though on parole, he started his own mechanic shop and was living his new life on the straight and narrow. I had mad respect for this man.

    I also admired the heck out of Hadley. Her marriage dissolved into a pile of rubble. Her husband had abandoned her and her daughter and she had to learn to embrace her new life as a single mother. She realized that her daughter needed a positive male influence in her life and that's where Trick really fit the bill.

    The evolution of their relationship was incredibly sweet and I loved the way that Trick feel in love with Hadley and Riley and they with him. This story is light, sexy and sweet with only a touch of conflict near the end. If you're looking for an easy read, you can definitely add this one to your list.
