This matchmaker's about to meet her match...

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.

My Opinion

Grace Love is the owner of a matchmaking business. She herself however does not have a glowing record when it comes to her own matches. She has been burned by love in the form of a lying ex-fiancĂ©. So, she moved out started a match making business and has been living life relatively low-key. She has a great job that she is good at and loves to hang out with both of her best friends. Serena is always there for a laugh and to make sure that Grace doesn’t get screwed over. Trick is well Trick, he is a cop that lives next door to her. When she moved in, he was a straight player. Lately, though he has been hanging out more and more with Grace and less with other girls. He has been trying to show her that he has changed his playboy ways but she is not taking the hint. Then at the Halloween party, he thought for sure she would know who he was. When she didn’t it was the perfect time to show her what could be. Only he forgets to tell her later that her mystery man was him.

Grace is adorable. She is the soft to Serena’s edginess. She is home to Trick’s dangerous life (being on SWAT is dangerous). She is the sensitive, loving type. Sometimes she can be klutzy but mainly just cute. Her ex really did a number on her and so I understand why she would avoid putting herself back out there. She doesn’t know what to do with her growing attraction to Trick and so that could be a problem.

Trick is swoon worthy and yet he does a jerk move. Not telling her who he is was a jerk move. Yet, he knows it and just hopes that she can forgive him. He has so many feels when it comes to Grace that it is hard to be mad at him for lying. He feels completely guilty for it, which is the one thing he had going for him.

Dirty Trick is a fun loving, friends to lover tale. Grace and Trick’s story leaves you completely happy with a silly smile on your face. That instantly turns into a smirk because you know that Serena is about to meet her match. Hence the frantic search on Amazon to one-click.

My Rating 4 out of 5 stars
