Damn, I don't really care about Alaric...give me Theron and pizza girl
Trick is the story of Faith Peyton, a human woman that must marry by law so she is put into a computer and selected for Alaric Woods, bear shifter and part of the “shifter monarchy” as a top architect in rebuilding their society.

I’m a big fan of Scarlett Dawn’s work. There is no denying it. I’ve read and re-read everything she has written but I am also going to admit that I liked the Origin series but haven’t loved it until now…Trick just did it for me.

Fast paced, funny and serious with some rea

Most unattractive cover art in this series. Just Ewww!
Alaric met his mate at his front door nothing happened the end
I actually really like the MC's in this story but I wish there more scenes with them. I feel like I didn't really get to know Faith or Alaric which is a shame as they're such cool and fun characters. And while I appreciated the lighter tone of the plot (versus the previous books), I couldn't help but feel like this book's story was a filler until we get to Theron & Pizza Girl and eventually (view spoiler). Still, this series has been great and I can't wait for the ne ...more

It was a little saddening to know that there's nothing much for faith and alaric plot-wise. It felt like they were some kind of a side story to Poppy-Cass/Theron-pizza delivery girl. Like they were ripped off of their own book.

Shame, too, this one. Faith was the most interesting heroine from this series. At least in my opinion. She's cool and witty and well-rounded. She's not in-your-face strong/badass. But she's not meek/fragile either. I think she's the balance needed among them (the gang). A

Trick by the incredible talented author Scarlett Dawn is the fourth book in the Origin Series.
Trick is not a standalone and I highly recommend to read the books in order. Book one, Trigger tells Poppy and Godric´s story; book two, Transcend is Mina and Finn´s book; book three, Torment is Megan and Rune´s story.
Trick picks up where Torment left off. Mr. Valentine is back and more devious than ever. He picks a young woman and shoves her into the path of another powerful shifter.

Trick is the 4th in the series of ‘The Origin’ Shifter Romance by Scarlett Dawn.

Trick is based on Faith Peyton and Alaric Woods. Faith is nearing her birthday of 25 and by law she has to marry if she doesn’t join the Corporate Army, so she voluntarily chooses to go through the marriage match and by luck straight away she gets bids hitting through the roof and and then selected by the highest bidder. She is then given 24 hours to meet her new fiancé to complete the marriage match contract. She d

I liked this book. I was very interested in the Mr. Valentine plot and I was on the edge of my seat waiting for him to make his next move. In that aspect of the book, I think Scarlett Dawn did very well. In the character development and making me emotionally attached to the characters, she has been falling short in the last few installments. The books in this series keep getting shorter and shorter leading to less and less character development which is essential to a good book or s

I absolutely love it😍😍😍😍💙💙💙💕💕💕!!!! I've been waiting patiently for this book and I want disappointed. A trick brought them together but love will keep them there. A couple twists I want expecting God's death was the jumping point for many relationships. Now we know more about who is fated to be mates and I Cabot wait to read the next book.

WARNING: for whatever reason my actual Kindle was missing chapters as compared to the Kindle Android app. You may also get the same problem?

I liked the heroine but aside from Jonathan & conversation with Crazy Seerer - not a lot to this book.

This was a truly enjoyable read. I have enjoyed all of the books in this series. Each book has its own personality. This was a ‘lighter side’ of the story that has been evolving with each issue. It was engaging and entertaining, full of good humor and love. The conversations between the characters are very believable. Another well done, Scarlett.

Alright, I had nothing against Faith or Alaric but the revelations in main plot ticked me off and left horribly sour taste in my mouth. Damn, I really hate villains who help good guys in their own way. For me, it's the worst cliché in the book (and TV) world. ...more

This threw me through I knew where series was going, but the revelation blew me. Wow didn’t see that coming. Each book takes you farther but then you don’t want it to end. Not going to give spoilers away, but great book. Can’t wait for next book. Thank you

Must read!

Another one bites the dust! This is Alaric and Faith's story and I love them as a couple. You get to see a softer side of Alaric and Faith, his mate, is one tough cookie. More secrets are revealed about the overall plot and I can't wait for the next one in the series. Scarlett Dawn's books are always a must read and this one didn't disappoint.

Love it!

As always, Dawn brings an amazing story with a wonderful web of characters that are both fierce and romantic. Steamy would be an understatement. I would recommend this to those who enjoy romance, paranormal or not. As well as those who enjoy urban fantasy as a whole. It does not disappoint.

This is one great series. It starts with Trigger. This is the fourth book in the series. Faith is turning twenty five, she must sign up with a marriage broker and be matched. All this must happen before she turns twenty five. Faith is a strong and capable woman. She is the first mate on a fishing boat. She knows how to survive and is a hard worker. She is matched with the highest bidder, Alaric Wood. She sure did not expect that, one of the richest and most reclusive of men. Off she goes to meet ...more

Fast fun read. Had me smiling the whole time. I can't wait for the next book in this series .
Trick by Scarlett Dawn is the fourth novel in the Origin series, and as we have hit the halfway mark of on Origin, it has the most reveals and surprises for fans of the series.

Faith Peyton is a brand new character to Origin and I love her! She’s a straightforward, what you see is what you get kind of girl. And it’s a breath of fresh air to have a character like that. An orphan with little memory of her childhood or her own origins, Faith works as a fisherman, but as her 25th birthday approaches

Dystopian Paranormal Romance

I purchased this at the current price. This is my honest review for which I receive no compensation of any kind.

The cover is the same style of the others in the series. I’m not sure about how the young woman’s hair and the bear’s fur blend or don’t blend. The story is a bit off from what the other stories are. The pace is fast. But the tension suffers from the switches between sex and the weather and o

I love this series!!!

So much humor! I laughed so hard there were tears running down my face! After the heartbreaking events in the previous books this was like a breath of fresh air.

The female characters just keep getting better and better. Each heroine is my favorite until I read the next and then she becomes my favorite. While there is progress in the overlying story arc, the way this book unfolds makes you realize that life goes on and you should appreciate what you have in the moment.

Faith’s time is up, she knows she is not made to be part of the Corporate Army and so she must marry. She is ready to be a wife, ready to call a home hers (she was raised in an orphanage). Mainly she just wants to belong. So off to The Marriage Match for her, a company that matches couples based on the highest bidder. The computer matches her with Alaric Woods, so she goes to met her future hubby.

Alaric had no idea that he was being matched, so color him surprised when he opens the door. He is e

Faith and Alaric book 4

This book was definitely a lighter read then the last 2 had been. I felt like there was and wasn't any progress with the story line at the same time.
I gave this book 3.5 *** stars because the female and male lead were hysterical. They met each other by accident, and yet no accident at all. Many things are brought to light about the main villain of the series in this book, and yet we're still hanging to the edge of our seats wondering what is actually going on!

Borrowed book two (Transcend) with KU - It was OK but hate how the author treated Poppy and Godric and didn't give Finn much development
Borrowed book three (Torment) with KU - REALLY ,REALLY, REALLY hate what the author did to Poppy and Godric but the main character part of the story is OK

Because I like you, I'm going to give you some advice.  Please read the previous books in this series.  I think that there is some serious world building and important story arcs which have their set-ups in books 1 - 3 which (in part at least) feed into and play out in this book.

With that proviso in mind, on the whole, I enjoyed the relationship between Faith and Alaric.  Of course, there is the usual insta love/lust that one often encounters in shifter novels.  In the context of that genre, I d

Tone lightens a bit in this fun fast read with answers!

This was a great short read. After some of the heaviness of Torment, Trick was a breath of fresh air. I loved Faith and Alaric and laughed many times during this book. Even better, we start getting some very concrete answers to who Mr Valentine is and what he may be trying to accomplish thought maybe not the whys. It could be because this was originally intended to be a 5 book series and is now 7. We also find out a bit more on what's going

Love Faith. This book had many **awe she’s so sweet*** moments; a nice change up. Still worth the read even if you miss the action, because it’s well written and exciting. Love Scarlett’s work. It really says something that the book is still one that I devoured in two sitting even without all the proverbial explosions and car chases (although the car scene in this book was hilarious). Faith is definitely sweeter than the rest of the ladies in this series, but it goes show you can still be a bada ...more

This book was okay for me faith didn’t really intrigue me, I felt like this was a fluffer piece. I also don’t think Alaric and faith are going to make it for some reason I think faith may be Jason aka Mr Valentine’s mate. Just some hidden cues throughout the book made me believe that Faith may end up with Jason. On the plus I can’t wait for Theron and Pizza girls book (does she even have a name?) Lastly I still miss Godric I truly miss him and really think SD will have to work magic for me

Wasn't my favorite of the series

I can appreciate that she rushed through the 4th explanation of shifters but it all seemed too fast paced. I mean she was fully invested from page 10. I saw the Poppy part coming but nothing really came of it, wondering how long we'll have to wait. I feel like this was just a story to come out with who they're fighting, like she just had someone say it vs them figuring it out. Wasn't my favorite of the series but I'll keep reading the next one.
