Release Blitz! Trick By Laramie Briscoe

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.

You never know when you are going to find that person who makes your life complete, especially if you aren’t looking at the time for whatever reason it may be.  Love can come out of nowhere and sometimes it’s when you don’t think you need it is when it will show up and make your life more complete.  This is what happens in Trick.  I love that Ms. Briscoe has once again gone outside the box we know her for and has written a story about love, family, seeing what is on the inside of a person and not allowing their past to define them. 

Trick is an ex-convict, he has done some things in his past obviously that he is now on parole for but he really is making a better person out of himself and trying to put the past where it should be, behind him.  To do that though he has to fulfill the hours of community service he was given.  Serving as a male figure in a child’s life is how he is doing this ad when he meets Riley and her mom Hadley all bets are off because he wants to be more than just a role model; the question is though will Hadley and Riley want him as more?

Hadley and Riley have felt the sting of abandonment and heartache when Riley’s father hasn’t had anything to do with her after he left Hadley.  Getting these two to trust Trick isn’t going to be easy, but something just clicks between them all.  I loved seeing Hadley grow from where she was when we first started to read about her to where she was at the end.  Riley the same as well.  These two deserved the love, stability and family that Trick could bring them.

Trick was really a book about giving someone a chance, to not allow preconceived notions rule your real impressions of others.  It is about love, family, and friendship.  I really enjoyed Trick and I think if you are a fan of Ms. Briscoe or new to her writing you will enjoy it as well.
