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.

‘Trick’ by Laramie Briscoe was such a treat to read. I was more than pleasantly surprised with the book I was reading and I fell in love with Trick, Sprite and Hadley and I give 5 wonderful stars for this book.


I don’t know why I had thought this was going to be a darker book than what it was so I was thrilled to find Trick, the big gentle soul that he was who was just looking for acceptance and love. My heart warmed every time I was reading about Trick and especially when he was interacting with Riley (Sprite).


The thing both Hadley and Trick had said they didn’t want and had made a stipulation before becoming part of a community service rehab programme to provide father figures for those who need is that they aren’t looking for a relationship. Hadley has other things to think about other than men and Trick has had enough of the mummy’s throwing themselves at him, he can’t deal with it any more. Neither expected the instant attraction and connection they would have.


Never did Hadley think that she would get someone who would not only heal her daughters’ broken heart but hers too. Although that being said her heart wasn’t really broken as it was saddened by what she had allowed herself to accept as love. Trick not only showed her what a true gentleman should be like but also how unconditionally love can be given whether you are biologically related or not, being a blood relation doesn’t necessarily mean love.


I won’t go over all the details of the book as the blurb gives you more than enough to make you one click and if you don’t then you are certainly missing out. Absolutely not what I was expecting but I truly loved this book and it left me wanting more. The writing was flawless and going from Trick and Hadley’s perspectives allows you to know them and what they are both thinking. An absolute must read.
