REVIEW: Trick by Lori Garrett

"Gunner Hunt—resident bad boy and town loser—made one smart, selfless decision in his entire screwed up life—he walked away from Harlow Mills.
He and Harlow had one summer of mind-blowing sex and passion, but Gunner knew he wasn't good enough. He loved Harlow enough to walk away.
It's been three years since Gunner stomped on her heart and left her broken, but when Harlow walks into the dive bar he now owns, that familiar spark reignites and burns through both of them.
Contrary to what Gunner thinks, Harlow isn't just lusting after the off-limits bad boy...or the toe curling sex they have. She wants Gunner back, and she wants him for good.
But some things never change, and even though their feelings—and their chemistry—are still going strong, the fact remains that Gunner’s world of motorcycles, booze, and a band of screwed up brothers is no place for Harlow Mills, card-carrying member of multiple country clubs and daughter of a millionaire.
Gunner has two choices:
Accept that Harlow deserves better than him, and walk out on her…again.
Or man up and learn to be good enough for the only girl he wants in his bed, and his heart.
Gunner tricked himself into believing he didn't need Harlow in his life once before...but can he give up the only woman he ever loved a second time?"


I loved this story!  Harlow is the beautiful and sometimes spoiled daughter of a wealthy business man.  The summer she turns eighteen, she falls in love with THE bad boy in her town, Gunner Hunt.  Gunner comes from a long line of rough guys that are a bit on the shady side.  They have a summer of passion and love but he leaves her believing that he is no good for her and she deserves someone else.  Three years go by and a chance meeting....Well, you better pick this book up to find out the rest!

Harlow was great.  She never let anyone tell her how to feel and who to be with.  She fought for what she believed in whether it was Gunner or her dream to be a dancer.  She had great friends.  I loved Daisy and am excited to see that the companion book is about her!  The relationship with her father was tense at times but to be expected.  I was so proud of Harlow for trusting her gut with the whole Rochelle situation. Overall, she is a very likable and strong character.  Which is a refreshing change from a lot of the damaged and insecure heroines we are seeing these days.

Gunner!  At times he was a hot mess!  However, HOT is the operative word here.  WOW does he know how to take care of a girl in the bedroom!  His transformation was great.  He remained true to himself but became a better version.  His relationship with Mr. Daniels was so sweet and I'm glad he took his sage advice.  There were no games and when it came down to it, he took care of business.

Overall I thought Trick was a great read!  I wish it was longer and I wanted more!  I will definitely be reading more of Lori Garrett's books and suggest for you to read this one too!  It's a strong and sexy novel!
