He’s quiet, a thinker who is always three steps ahead of the game—in and out of the ring.

Trenton “Trick” Jameson is a mystery, even to his fellow fighters at Diablo’s Throne. They only know him as the Country Boy Brawler who left home to chase his dreams. His band of brothers have no idea what he's lost or left behind...

And that’s the way Trick wants it.

I think this is my favorite in this series so far, and that's saying a lot as the first 2 books were amazing. Who doesn't love a good, nice, white knight with muscles? So much story in this one little book. And a lot of humor thrown in. This is definitely a MUST read for 2018.
Trick was HJ Bellus’ third book in the Diablo’s Throne MMA series and I’m hoping it won’t be the last.

Trenton “Trick” Jameson was known as the “Country Boy Brawler” in the MMA world. He left his family in the small town of Idaho to pursue his dreams. He was a fighter but always wanted to go to college for his accounting degree so he attempted both simultaneously.

Mackenzie “Mack” Graham was the clumsy but deathly shy introvert that had a simple and understated beauty. She was used to being the

Trick is just gentlemanly at times, “when we are together, I pay. No exceptions. You’re not going to argue. It’s the way I was raised. ” I kiss her sweet, cherry-flavored lips." Trick has inform his woman on some things, “you can’t be considered a farm boy’s or cowboy’s girlfriend if you haven’t romped around in the hay a few times.” I loved this book, I loved Trick he was protective and caring.
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

4.5 stars

Trick is the third book in the series and while it can be read as a standalone it's worth your time to read the others in the series.

I'm a sucker for Alpha males and their protective nature and Trick had this in spades. He left home at an early age to pursue his dream of an MMA fighter. Because of his dream, his father has disowned him but he's built a family with the men at the gym. He realizes he can't sustain his career and needs to go back to school for a brighter future.

I am addicted to this story. Heck, I'm consumed with this series. My heart was completely invested in these two characters.
They're both woven perfectly with Heidi's words that you can’t help but fall. A perfectly written book that gave me all the feels. In Heidi's special way, she had me laughing on one page. Tears ready to fall on the next. Such an amazing story.
Trust me, you need a whole lot of TRICK in your life.

"These fighters at Diablo’s Throne are a special type of men."

This series is quickly becoming one of my fav sportsbooks. This one was even better!
In the second book of the series, we see more of Trick and his shy way. This guy can beat everyone in the cage but can also blush like a school girl. It's so sweet! These characters are awesome, and I have a lot of fun reading it.
Trick was trying to move on with his life after he left home to follow his dream. His

I don't even know where to begin with this book. I enjoyed Trick and Mack's story so much I finished it in 2 hours.
Leaving Idaho and everyone behind Trick heads to college and train for MMA with Diablo's. But sometimes leaving doesn't always work the way you planned and you end up back where you started. And sometimes even the best plans work out different in the end. For you never know just when someone may land in your lap changing everything.

This book is amazing. These MMA brothers are so different from each other and their girls are so awesome! Trick is far from Jag but who needs more than 1 Jag! The world couldn’t handle it! So far I think Trick is my fave!

This series continues to surprise me. I really enjoyed Trick's 4.5 stars story. It was filled with many emotions from all angles were I couldn't help but constantly swoon for this MMA fighter. He left home to make more of himself and the risk of leaving was hard leading him to pick between the family plans and his want to make it on his own terms. He is sweet, sexy, and an alpha male that you cannot help but fall head over heels for.

OMG! OH. MY. GOD. Just. Ohmygawd. I knew I’d like Trick before I started it. HJ Bellus is one of my favorite authors ever, so I started this fully expecting to enjoy it. But I more than enjoyed Trick. I effing LOVE TRICK! Not like “Oh this is gooooood” love. Nope I full on stalker level love this book. I fell fast and hard for Trick and now must recover from an epic book hangover. HJ Bellus took this series to even higher levels than it already was with this addition.

Seriously love this series! I love this group of friends who are truly family!
Mack made me sad. She had a horrible start to life that no one ever let her forget. Kids are cruel but even as adults these people were cruel. She was a scared little thing with no self confidence. Until her big strong hero Trick came in and saved the day. I absolutely loved watching him build her up, give her strength. She blossomed into a strong independent woman who in turn held her hero up when he started to

What a great continuation of the Diablo’s Throne MMA series. I loved Trick and everything that he is about. There are some stories that just grab you and make you not want to let the characters go and this is one of them. I wanted more! It follows Trick and how he gets into MMA and how Mack literally falls into his lap one day in class. Can he break her out of her shell and show her how to live and love. Emotional, heartwarming and suck-you-in type of read. One you won’t want to put down and ...more

My life now looks like a car without brakes. Lol. Once I end a book I automatically start a new one. Sometimes I forget the time and dig in but the problem is that sometimes I stay awake till the sun is almost up and I need to go to work... Crazy right??
H. J. Bellus had been in my book life for a few months and the impact that had made me want to read non stop. After the first book I was doomed.

Trick is the third book in the Diablo’s Throne series. They can be read as standalones, but if you love alpha MMA fighters I recommend reading the whole series. I loved this book and have to say it is my favorite in the series so far, but I am sure that will change when I read the next book!

I love the brotherhood of the Diablo Throne fighters and how they always unquestioningly have each other’s backs.

Trick’s story is no different. He is following his dreams of becoming a fighter, but

There is so much to love, to laugh and to cry about in this book. It is every emotion you could ever feel.

In a continuation of the Diablo’s Throne MMA series, this is book 3, and after Cruz and Jag, we get to read Trick’s story, and wow! Once again, HJ Bellus puts a story together with her trademark writing of tension and steam pulled together with a layer of humour endemic in most families, where characters always try their best to wind each other up.

This is why we love MMA romances. The men

What!!??? Just say what now!! Trick just blew Cruz and Jag completely out of first place!! And this series just keeps getting better and better!!! This book tho, this book, lord have mercy this book touched me so much. That Heidi will have some work cut out for her to top this one because just daaammmmnnnn woman!!! First off I had a feeling Trick would be my favorite from the beginning because two reasons 1. MMA fighter and 2. Country boy can you say Kryptonite!!! Then add on that Southern charm

I am sooo in love with HJ Bellus MMA men!!! These books have been soo freaking good and such a great page turner with all the bad ass fighting and drama going on...ohh and then let me mention, the romance in her books are off the charts HAWT!!! Goodness...I can't get

Trick is the next book in the Diablo Throne books. I feel like you could probably read each as a standalone, but in each book, Bellus gives you glimpses in the lives of the other guys and to me it just

Trick may very well be my favorite from Diablo's Throne gym.
Trick, the Country Boy Brawler, knew ranching was never where he wanted to be. After being forced out of his parents house by his mom to follow his dreams, he never looked back. That doesn't mean he never thought about it, but never wanted to return.
Mack is a clumsy, introvert who literally falls into Tricks lap the first day of class. And this woman has him intrigued from the very beginning, never can get the thought of her out of his

This is a story about finding your place in the world and the people that become your family. Mack (Mackenzie) learns how to truly live her life and falls in love with Trick. Trick is smitten from day one and Mack becomes the center of his world. I loved catching up with Layla and Cruz, and Sunni and Jag, from books one and two in the series. The extended epilogue and the bonus emailed scene were perfect! This has become one of my favorite series, each book even better than the last.

Love Trick with his Sweet Ole Country Boy Demeanor <3
Trick is such a sweetheart and the protective instincts he has for the people he loves blew me away. Watching Mack grow into herself with the love and support from the Diablo's Throne MMA family was amazing. I thought that no one could top Cruz, but I have been mistaken (in such a great way!)

Would love to see more from the Diablo's Throne MMA family!

Absolutely loved Trick's story. The Country Boy Brawler is amazing and meant to be an MMA fighter. On the flip side, he is gentle and caring. Enter Mack, and Trick is exactly what she needs to help break her out of her shell. Loved watching her change and grow. Love this series and can't wait for the next one!

Trick Book 3 Of this series Diablo’s Throne MMA was absolutely extraordinarily, i couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next when I turned the page. Trick and Mack both had some demons that were life changing they could make or break them. Their story is intense, steamy, filled with hurt and hope most importantly a lot of LOVE!! Family isn’t always a blood connection. Ok that’s it I can’t give any spoilers

I loved Trick and thought he was a great alpha male lead for this book. I'm glad he went back home at the end. It bothered me a little that he "retired" to the ranch that he desperately wanted to leave. I couldn't stand Mack at all. She was such a weak female lead. I understand she had a hard upbringing but she couldn't even order a donut without freaking out? I must have missed it but why was she afraid of cars? She had a good role model of Gene in her life.

Let me start off by saying I love this series. I love all the guys and girls and the family they've created.
I didn't love this book. I felt it was rushed and skimped on the character development. I didn't see any development of feelings between Mack and Trick, it just happened. We see none of the good stuff of their developing feelings, you know, the great part of early relationships.
I also don't understand why Mack was so anti-social. I get her history, but to me, it didn't add up to what it

Holy smokes!!! HJ Bellus is proving why she belongs on my instant TBR list even if she hadn’t uploaded the synopsis yet. I loved Cruz and Jag. But, Trick yeah he might’ve just gotten bumped to the top!

Trenton “Trick” Jameson grew up on his families ranch. If it was up to his father he’d take over the ranch one day. But, his mom knows ranching isn’t what he sees for his future. She helps pack his things and pushes him out the door and tells her son to follow his dreams
