4.5 "Squirrel with a Forgotten Past" Stars! If you read the book, you'll understand the reference. If you haven't, then I challenge you to explore this unique read. I have to say the blurb hooked me, though the read was unlike anything I was expecting or that I have previously read. This is one of those reads where the less you know going in, the better, as a number of important factors in the plot are a "trick". You will no doubt be left to surmise one conclusion, only to be intrigued by the crafty writing which hides the truth, like a magical illusion. The one thing I can tell you, is that if you enjoy emotionally gripping, sensual, erotic and romantic reads with a suspenseful overlay, then I highly recommend adding Only Trick to your TBR list.

They were never supposed to meet. Having grown up on complete opposite sides of the tracks, Darby Lucille Carmichael, a senator's daughter, and Patrick "Trick" Roth, a former drug addict and the son of homeless parents are the least likely couple you could imagine. Nonetheless when their paths cross, notwithstanding their unlikely connection, they feel a camaraderie unlike any they had previously known. Soon they become enveloped in a friendship like no other. Trick becomes Darby's first real friend and Darby gains a position in Trick's life unlike that which he has allowed any other woman to possess before.

They were warned to stay away from each other. Trick, a make-up artist, living with an older man; and Darby's step-mother and father ever conscious of their public political image; theirs was not a union meant to be exposed. Still no obstacle, large or small, could keep them away from each other.

Darby Carmichael, physician assistant, meets Trick Roth, makeup artist, motorcycle rider, and super hot squirrel, in her ER when he injures himself. Trick doesn’t remember five years of his life, and doesn’t trust women. Darby doesn’t trust men. So of course, romance happens.

The Good, The Bad and Everything In Between

-Interesting hero: I liked that Trick was a bit of an enigma, and didn’t conform to the usual romance hero type. He’s cocky and brash and rides, but he’s a makeup artist and wears guyliner. When the story begins, and Ms. Ann plays with his sexuality so Darby (and the reader) isn’t sure what’s going on. I liked the idea of Darby developing a friendship with him first and the short “chapters,” which amounted to a couple of paragraphs giving a glimpse as to what he’s thinking, certainly helped with feeling better connected with Trick’s issues. I would have enjoyed seeing him a little more protective of Darby and a little more caring of her comfort. That’s just a personal preference. He was a bit of a jerk through most of the story, but it’s in keeping with his trust issues and he makes up for it by the end.

-Darby’s sense of humor pulled me in: She self-deprecating and a bit lonely and insecure, but I liked her internal monologue. Her humor was a saving grace, because as the story progresses, she becomes a bit of a drama llama.

There’s reasons for this of course. Her relationship with her dad is all kinds of jacked and she truly has no friends, except for Trick. If I struggled with anything though, it’s her tendency towards immaturity. I could understand that they were both emotionally stunted in their own ways and it was in keeping with their characters.

Hurray, I finished! I feel like I deserve a Medal of Perseverance for finishing this novel. It has such a strong beginning so I’m still trying to figure out what went wrong. We’re given a quirky and sympathetic heroine in Darby and I really enjoyed the “falling in love with your gay best friend” angle. Trick is a supposedly gay, über hot, guyliner-wearing, tattooed makeup artist. Darby has never had a friend and Trick never lets anyone in. Watching them bond as friends was lovely and funny; however, the story seems to lose its footing when they become more than friends.

Trick has an unexplainable aversion to women that has something to do with a past he can’t recall. Ok, I can understand that. But for the love of all that’s holy, why did he have to pretend he was gay just to avoid women’s advances?! It just didn’t make any sense to me and it’s a major basis of the plot. Darby becomes clingy when she’s away from Trick for one minute. Trick behaves like a jackass by ignoring her and pretending he doesn’t notice when other women put their hands all over his body. As for the steam factor, the sex is hot but Trick and Darby act like dogs in heat and it becomes extremely repetitive. “Come”. Sex. Lip smirk. Sex. Jellied toast with eggs. Sex. Emoji texts. Sex. – Every. Single. Chapter. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

Although things seemed to be heading downhill, I held out hope until the story completely jumped the shark. Darby – this intelligent woman who has a fulfilling career she loves, and who lives down the street from a grandma she adores – spontaneously quits her job one day and moves to another country the next day to live with Trick. Whyyyy? Why was it necessary? And the big reveal about his past? 1) Who cares? 2) Grow up, Darby! Why so much angst?
