Dirty Trick by Christine Bell
Series: Perfectly Matched Book #1
Author: Christine Bell
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 Mathews 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.
Review: This is just such a sweet, feel-good kinda read. When Trick and Grace first met, Trick was just a player looking for some fun. But Grace took one look at him, pegged him for what he was, and they became just friends instead. Unfortunately, it took awhile for Trick to realize that he was actually in love with her – and by the time he did, he was firmly in the “friend zone” – with no hope in sight of getting Grace to see him as more than that.
Desperate times call for desperate measures – and Trick certainly has those in spades! When the opportunity presents itself to get Grace to see him with new eyes (well, sort of – he is wearing a mask at the time) he jumps at the chance. He figures if he can just open her eyes what they have together, she’ll see him differently. But the longer he plays the game, the more he rationalizes it in his head – and he keeps delaying telling her the truth. But what happens when Grace finally realizes the truth?
Just a fun, fun read that you won’t want to miss!
