Grace Love is lousy with men. She can spot a match for someone else a mile away, and her balls-on instincts are why her matchmaking business is thriving, but finding her own Prince Charming? The only guy who makes her sixth sense tingle is her playboy best friend, Trick, and no way is she risking their friendship, no matter how hot she knows the sex will be.
SWAT officer Trick Matthews is a patient guy, but Grace’s inability to see what’s right in front of her is grinding on his last nerve. Yeah, he blew his shot at breaking out of the friend zone when he tamped down the urge to lick her from head to toe the day they met, but he’s got a plan that’ll change her mind. Incognito at Salem's hottest Halloween party, he’ll show her exactly how good they could be…and that he’s the man for her.
Dirty Trick is a sexy, entertaining read. Leave it up to Brazen to indulge my guilty pleasure reading. Dirty Trick was one of those hot, guilty pleasures that once you start reading it, there's no stopping until you've finished the book. Trick and Grace. I love these two. They were so much fun to read about. The sexual chemistry sizzles whenever they're together. I mean it's hot. There's more to these two than just chemistry. I love that this story has that mix of sexy times as well as seeing the two of them together as best friends.
Trick, the hot SWAT commander how lives next door, has loved Grace from the moment he laid on her. Grace on the other hand fights her feelings for Trick (who's real name is Patrick). Thinking he's still the playboy he was when she first moved in next door a few years ago, she doesn't see he's no longer that guy, and he is head over heels in love with her. Funny how that is, since she and her other best friend Serena have an extremely successful matchmaking service. Being the patient man Trick he, he values their close friendship, and decides to do what he has to to convince Grace that he is the right guy for her.
Lucky for Trick the upcoming hottest Halloween party in town gives him the chance to hide who is and make his move on Grace. OKay, so let's talk about that for just a moment. I at first wanted to roll my eyes over Trick wanting to hide himself to Grace, but I understand why he did it, and I also loved the Serena totally laid into him for doing that as well, and even knew it was him at the party. Now I will say that the scenes with Trick in disguise and Grace are hot! Like hot sexy times, that are written for adult readers. Back to Trick.... Grace is still guarded from her ex who really was a horrible boyfriend, and knew how to make her feel like crap. Trick, being the man that he is, is bound and determined to make Grace see she is that beautiful, sexy women that he's fallen for.
Holy hotness batman the sexual tension between Grace and Trick was well done. I also loved that Trick is a member of the SWAT team.... yeah that works out perfect for this story. I loved how things developed, and how the story wrapped up. Sure the story line at times is predictable, but it's a guilty pleasure, that's excepted. Dirty Trick is definitely one of those enjoyable sexy time reads that is packed full of sexual tension, sizzling chemistry, and has a great story line rich in love, friendship, and learning to trust again. I so need more of their story.
