Tricks (Take It Off #6) by Cambria Hebert


Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Tricks (Take It Off, #6) “It’s never felt like this before,” she said, her voice a low whisper.
“Darlin’, you haven’t felt anything yet.”




Well, this was definitely my favourite book of the series, and it was actually worth reading the 5 previous books to get to this one!

I really liked Tucker in this book, I mean, he was just dreamy. I mean, my, oh, my, this boy was hot!

“I practically squirmed under his stare, not because I didn’t like it, but because I did.”



And Charlie wasn’t bad either, although I did find it a little odd how long it took her to tell the difference between her boyfriend and his twin brother.

“When did you get the tattoo?” she asked, her voice low and slightly off.

The storyline in this was okay, but it was the romance/sex scenes that made this book enjoyable. I found the storyline where Tucker stepped in and basically took over his brother’s life to be a little unbelievable, and I really wasn’t impressed that he then even took over his brother’s job? Really?

“We need you to step in where Maxwell left off. To assume the identity of your brother.”



Anyway, forget all that, because we actually got really good, steamy, hot, ‘I need to read this twice’, OMG sex scenes! Something that has really been lacking in the previous books in this series, but finally! Finally! Cambria got it right! And boy will I be reading those naughty chapters again!

“Everywhere he touched I felt the kiss of longing. The only thought in my head in that moment was, Don’t stop.”



So I’m going to ignore the unbelievable bits of the storyline, and give 4 stars to super-sexy Tucker, and those naughty little sex scenes. Yay!
8 out of 10
