"Trick Play (Mavericks #3)" Reviews
ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.
I don’t like to say this, but unfortunately with Trick Play, I just couldn’t really get into it. This is a first for me with this series and Max Monroe, but something about the book just didn’t hook me the way I normally expect with their stories.
That said, there’s nothing wrong with the story itself, or the plot. It’s all about wondering when Trixie will come clean with Cam, and if or how they will end up together. There are great secondary characters in terms of Trixie’s family, and of course we get some glimpses of the Mavericks as well.
I just felt that I didn’t connect with the characters or feel that invested in their story. I’m wondering if this was just me though, and where I’m at with my reading right now.
I have seen ALOT of positive reviews for this book, so I’m thinking I’m one of the odd ones out here. The whole idea of the storyline is a good one, and intriguing in itself, something a little different for this series from Max Monroe.
I still look forward to reading the next book in this series, and whatever else comes next from Max Monroe.

Follow me on:
Cam Mitchell can be a little impulsive and a lot playful, to say the least. Although recently he has found himself wanting more, with his best friends finding the love of their lives, Cam can't help being envious of the bond his friends have with their significant others. So when faced with irresistible attraction Cam just goes with his instincts, and his instincts are telling him this could be something special.
The circumstances to Cam's first meeting with Trixie are unconventional and result in a night Cam will never forget and not for the right reasons 😃 Yet, the pull towards each other is a fight neither Cam nor Trixie can hope to win.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of things Trixie is unable to tell Cam due to the situation she is currently in!!!! Although she is herself when she is with Cam the toll the lack of open communication weighs heavy between them. Especially as Trixie is so very guarded, raising a lot of red flags for Cam. Adding to the tension is Cam's fame from playing for the Mavericks while Trixie cannot risk being recognized!!!!!
Cam and Trixie have the same desire to find a life partner to share the ups and downs with. I loved the imagery used of a lone wolf searching for its pack; especially poignant when both Cam and Trixie were having the same feelings at the same time just in different locations.
The relationship and the intensity of emotions move along at a rapid pace but the progression felt organic and not at all contrived. Cam and Trixie quite simply fit. Although there are circumstantial problems to overcome there isn't anything between Cam and Trixie that cannot be fixed simply by being open and honest 💞

4 stars. This was a cute book! Trick Play is Cam Mitchell and Lana's story. Cam is one of the pro-football players on the Mavericks. When his friend Quinn (from Wildcat) has a bachelor party at a strip club, Cam meets the woman of his dreams. He can't get her out of his mind and goes out of his way to pursue her. The only problem is the woman of his dreams, who he thinks is a stripper named Trixie, is actually Lana and she's way more than just a stripper. Lana has some big secrets. She likes Cam, but she has to stay focused on keeping her secrets in order to keep herself and everyone she loves safe. As she spends time with him, it gets harder and harder to keep him in the dark. When Cam finds out what Lana's hiding, he is not happy at all. But their strong feelings for each other overcome in the end.
I really enjoyed this book! It is definitely my favorite in this series. I connected well with the characters and story. This was a fun, light read. It was quick and easy with Max Monroe's trademark humor, but it had a dash of suspense emotional punch as well. Yet, it was not OTT, forced, silly-funny. Cam was adorable and Lana was strong, yet still vulnerable. They were a great couple. I would have liked the conflict wrapped up a little sooner than the last few pages, but that did not stop my enjoyment. I also would have liked to see more of what their relationship was like once Lana's secret came out. Still, there is a cute epilogue to make up for it.
Overall, this was a fun, entertaining read. I enjoyed watching Cam and Lana "tackle love"! I can't wait for more from the Mavericks and Max Monroe in the future!

"If anything in my life is worth fighting for, it’s her."
If you are a HUGE FAN of the ‘Mavericks Tackle Love’ series by the wonderful ladies of Max Monroe, than you gotta know how absolutely ECSTATIC I was to have my hands on Cam Mitchell’s story! I mean, it’s Cam FREAKING Michell, people! I’m swooning all over the damn place here! Trick Play had all of the ingredients that make up a fantastic Romantic Comedy! It also had Max Monroe’s stamp ALL OVER IT! Sexy, hilarious, witty, emotional, and completely unforgettable, my heart definitely went through the ringer with this one. It was a fast-paced, absolutely PAGE-TURNER of a romantic read and I NEVER wanted it to end.
Cam and ‘Trixie’ were freaking ADORABLE together. Cam is EVERYTHING you thought he would be and more! When he sets his heart on something, it will take God himself, to pull his focus. And Trixie? Well, there is so much more to that woman, you don’t even know. The sexual tension goes up higher with every turn of the page and when these two kids finally break down each other’s walls, your heart will EXPLODE with happiness! There will be some deception, there will be heartbreak, but the romance is definitely ALIVE with this one, folks! I can’t wait for fans of the series to get their hands on Trick Play! A sexy, witty sports romance with enough comic relief to keep you on your toes…you couldn’t ask for anything better!
A stripper and a football player meet at a bar.
Uh, no, that’s NOT the opening line of a joke. Trixie and Cam meet at a bar. A strip bar to be exact. And whoa, do the sparks fly!
I have adored Cam Mitchell from the very first time I met him in Wildcat and I couldn’t wait until it was his turn to find love. And holy moly does love come banging on his door! Or maybe thumping through a heavy bassline, is more accurate.
Trixie. Damn. I have a serious girl crush on this woman. Tough as nails. Strong minded, strong willed, sexy as hell. I devoured every scene she was in—loved her interactions with her co-workers and her family. She is no pushover in life or love.
Speaking of love. There’s a whole lot of love going on between Cam and Trixie. I loved watching Cam and Trixie fall in love. Even without really knowing each other, there’s an undeniable attraction, a connection. And wow is amazing. They’re fantastic together in and out of the bedroom. *fans self*
I couldn’t get to the end of Trick Play fast enough to see how Cam and Trixie’s story unfolded. Then, of course, as I got to the last few pages, I hated for the story to end. That’s the mark of an excellent book! Which Trick Play is exactly that—excellent! ~ Missy, 5 stars
