Release Blitz ~ Trick by Laramie Briscoe

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


A forced sentence leads to a reckless passion…….


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. 


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.

5 Stars

A story of second chances and finding yourself. Hadley and her little girl, Riley, are picking up the pieces and moving on after the dissolution of her marriage. Hadley enrolls Riley in The Companion Program, hoping to give her daughter a positive and present male in her life, something she never had with her own father. Trick has made some mistakes but he's been working hard on growing his business and doing things right. The last thing he needs is to go back to jail and that's exactly where he's headed if he can't finish his community service hours at The Companion Program. Riley and Hadley are his last chance. Not only do Riley and Trick hit it off, but there's also something there between Trick and Hadley. Will this spark turn out to be more of inconvenience than it's worth or are they exactly what the other needs?
I have read Laramie Briscoe's Heaven Hill Series and really enjoyed it so when I saw the blurb for Trick, I was excited to read it. I was pleasantly surprised at just how much I loved this book.
Trick and Hadley were fabulous characters. Multidimensional and likable, I really wanted good things for them. I wanted to see them happy and Briscoe did a great job showing growth and change through their friendship/relationship. Add Riley into the mix and her interactions with Trick, and I was a goner! It was just incredibly sweet and resulted in such an inspiring change in all of the characters.
