The explosive and addicting Origin series by Scarlett Dawn dares the imagination with its next installment, TRICK. Mr. Valentine is back and he's more devious than ever.

Faith Peyton has run out of time to find a husband and her name is selected on Marriage Match by the highest bidder. When she reluctantly knocks on her future husband's front door, he doesn't even live there! The house belongs to the eccentric Alaric Wood, the sexiest man alive.

Alaric Wood isn't a man to be trifled with. His temper is a blood-thirsty beast that shouldn't be awakened. And when a waif of a woman shows up at his private mansion, claiming to be his future wife, he's had enough of the horrors that have plagued his life.

Except a trick can be more than it seems...

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 she is forced to seek marriage or join the Corporate Army. As she is not army material, Faith goes to the city’s matchmaking company and is bid on and won by one of the richest men in the world: Alaric Wood.

Alaric has been a bit of mystery in the series. While he’s made cameos in the previous books, not much is known about him and I have to say I wound up falling in love with him. He’s a bear, both figuratively and literally. His rage once unleashed is hard to control, and as it seems the Master is now messing with him in sending Faith to his doorstep, another fight is looming. I love the mystery surrounding Alaric but also how gentle he really is. Instead of a ferocious, scary bear, he’s adopts a teddy bear attitude where Faith is concerned.

Of all the relationships that have featured so far in the series, I love the buildup around Faith and Alaric. It’s a slow build with chemistry oozing off the pages. But what I loved most about this book is the big reveal. I do not want to spoil anything about this so I am putting it in spoiler tags: View Spoiler » This reveal makes the book. Not only does it pertain to the entire series, but it also is leading us down a path that I have a feeling will eventually blow up in all out war…..which I’m not opposed too 😉

Overall I really enjoyed this book, finishing it in one sitting. Faith and Alaric are wonderful additions to the series. I love their chemistry, as it reminds me of my own relationship with my husband. And I love how important this book is to the series as a whole. Up to this point, each book could be read as a standalone, but I feel no one should skip out on this one. If you enjoy the series so far, prepare to have your mind blown by this one. If you haven’t started the series yet and enjoy paranormal romance in a dystopian setting, I highly recommend you start by grabbing a copy of Trigger and prepare to binge!
