Book Review – Tricks (Take It Off #6) by Cambria Hebert

Tricks Cover


Love can play tricks on your heart… After serving several years in the United States Marine Corps, Sergeant Tucker Patton decides to hang up his uniform and go to work at a private investigative firm owned by his buddy. His boxes are packed and he’s got one foot out the door when a phone call changes everything. 

Instead of going to North Carolina, he heads to New York City to literally step into the life of his twin brother, who died under suspicious circumstances. But pretending to be someone else isn’t easy. 

Especially when the person you’re supposed to be is wanted dead. 
Not only that, but he’s going from being blissfully single to living with his brother’s woman. An uptight, no-nonsense lawyer.

Charlotte Rose Carter doesn’t have time for fun and games. She graduated with honors and made all the right moves fresh out of college to jumpstart her career as a successful young lawyer. She even snagged the most eligible bachelor in New York City’s corporate world.

So what if her and Max’s relationship isn’t burning up the sheets? So what if their life doesn’t read like a chapter from a sizzling romance novel? This is the real world, and in the real world that stuff is just fantasy. 

Until it isn’t. 

Suddenly, just the slightest touch or a single glance from Max has her heart doing somersaults. Suddenly, the lackluster relationship begins to spark, and Charlotte finds herself tied in a knot of desire.

But she has no idea about the tricks being played right under her perky little nose.




5 Star Review

Charlotte Carter is a young successful lawyer who is too busy for fun and games or anything unplanned. She just doesn’t have the time if she wants to make a name for herself. But she is dating the hottest most eligible bachelor in New York city’s corporate world. Max is the person she is closest to in her life and their relationship is perfect because both Charlotte and Max’s priority is work. Charlotte knows her relationship lacks any sizzle or romance but real life isn’t suspose to be like a romance novel. Right? Until one day Charlotte is burning hot from just a simple touch or look from Max. It’s like the spark in her relationship just appeared out of nowhere. She has no idea the tricks being played on her. 
Tucker Patton served several years in the Marines and decides to join forces with a buddy in North Carolina to open a private investigation firm. His plans change when the FEDs show up at his door to inform him his twin brother died while working with them. So he steps into his twin brother’s life to finish what his brother started. Little did Tucker know his brother had a live in girlfriend. How is Tucker going to handle having a pretend girlfriend when he is typically a love em and leave em the next morning type of guy? 
I really loved this book! Tucker is a super sexy ex-marine that has naughty thoughts and is sex on a stick hot! I also loved Charlotte. She is this young lawyer who plans everything and one day Max is now spontaneous and her life changes. She doesn’t even realize it but this new Max brings color into her world that was black and white before. But it’s a trick and she falls for it not really questioning any of the changes but instead enjoys them. The book is so great because of the dynamic of the Charlotte and Tucker chemistry is off the charts hot!  It lights the pages on fire. I am rooting for them throughout the book. They are so perfect together and bring the best out of each other. There is also danager looming around every corner. The book is well written and I love how the character evolve and grow throughout the book. 
 Can Tucker and Charlotte survive or will they die trying to bring down the scum who killed Max? How will Charlotte react when she finds out she was being tricked? Read this great book to find out or just read it for Tucker he is a good enough reason too.
