Dirty Trick (A Perfectly Matched Novel) by 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.

    Although I only recently discovered Christine Bell, I am a big fan already!  I really like that she writes "friends to lovers" books. Love the Dare Me Series and was really excited to pick this book up.  Grace is such a great characters.  She's sweet, charming, funny and a romantic.  She also has a few moments of comedic gold in this book!  Trick is also a great character trying so hard to figure out how to get Grace to see he's changed his playboy ways.  Sure, this book has a predictable ending but that doesn't mean the journey to get there isn't fun, hot and steamy!

    One of my favorite things about reading Christine Bell's stories

    One of my favorite things about reading Christine Bell's stories is, her characters are so real. Each scene plays out with such reality you can see it happening to you. Some of it, you WISH would happen to you, lol!

    Her one liners, her humor, her emotion and steamy love scenes make it a joy to read her work.

    Loved it!

    This was the first book I have read by Christine Bell and I was very pleased. I am halfway through "Down or the Count" and it is equally as good. I highly recommend her books.

    So, I spent most of my day reading Dirty Trick by Christine Bell

    So, I spent most of my day reading Dirty Trick by Christine Bell. Which happens to be the first in Bell's newest series Perfectly Matched. Basically it's about two friends, Grace and Serena, who own a matchmaking company in Salem, MA. 

    Dirty Trick starts off right before the biggest Halloween Party of the year. Grace basically gets dump before the party and now she's dateless. 

    Trick has been in love with Grace since the first moment they met, but he wasn't really ready for a relationship. So, all Grace saw was the playboy side and didn't believe he would change. She figure it would be best to keep them at the friend level. During their friendship, Trick decided to grow-up and want a real relationship with Grace. Somehow, Grace didn't notice Trick had change. Man that gotta suck for him. So, he figure it would be a good idea to let Grace see him differently and try to win her over using a disguise. When will guys learn? 

    I actually like these two characters, because they really pack some heat when they are together. Grace is a vulnerable woman who is naïve at times. Plus, he's afraid to let Trick into her heart, because she's afraid to get burned again. The last guy did a doozy on her, so she doesn't really trust her instincts when it comes to guys. Yes, Trick was a player, but he really wanted to get with Grace. So, he cleaned up his act. Honestly, that's really sweet. 

    Overall, I enjoyed Dirty Trick. Yes, Trick was an idiot the way he went about to get past the friendship wall. Still, the guy had to do what a guy has to do to get what he wants. Plus, Grace put up some serious walls to protect her heart. Basically Dirty Trick is a hot steamy read with a sappy ending. So, if you are looking for some steam with a dash of sweet, you might like Dirty Trick.

    I've been a long-time fan of Christine Bell and all her other pen names, but this book may be my all time favorite. She's as hilarious as ever, but this time with two main characters that are just as lovable and realistic as Christine Bell's writing. Trust me, this one some be on everyone's insta-buy list!

    Great read

    ## I enjoyed this book tremendously. The two leads have fantastic chemistry which is a must for sure. The first sex scene was a little awkward but things get better from there. This was a short and fun story which I will gladly read again. I only wish Ms. Bell would've added a couple of pages to the ending which I felt was a bit rushed, ergo the 4 star rating.

    I loved this book so much had a hard time putting it down. Something about Christine Bell's writing just had me hooked from the get go and had me cheering for Trick to finally show Grace what she'd been missing. 




    Their chemistry was off the charts and the emotions I hate to say had this heavily pregnant woman a little teary toward the end. 




    I'll admit I loved this book so much I immediately purchased the two Dare Me book in the Brazen series also by Ms Bell and I loved them too looking forward to more in the Matchmakers series.




    Overall I give this 5 out of 5(less)

    I love Christine Bell's writing, she has a wonderfully captivati

    I love Christine Bell's writing, she has a wonderfully captivating voice that puts you right in the middle of her stories. In Dirty Trick, Bell weaves a story of best friends turned lovers through a sexy Halloween trick that turns into the most delicious of treats. 




    Grace Love is a match maker, however, her skills haven't worked so well for herself. After a devastating breakup that shattered her self esteem, she has stuck to the safe...and somewhat boring. The only man who seems to make her tingle is her playboy best friend and neighbor, Trick Matthews, but she knows messing around with him will only lead to another broken heart. 
    Trick has been lusting after his neighbor since the first day she moved in, but when Grace quickly friend-zoned him, he took the hint. Hanging out with her day after day though has only strengthened his initial attraction for Grace until he can no longer picture his life without her and wants more then just friendship. Trick knows that Grace will never give him the chance to show her how right they are together. But when an opportunity arises at Halloween to show her just how good they can be together without her even knowing it is him, he takes it. The trouble is, once the lies start Trick finds it hard to dig himself out of the pile he makes until he risks loosing any chance with Grace, as a friend and lover.




    I enjoyed Dirty Trick start to finish. Grace is a fun, feisty, and relate-able heroine. I understood her hesitance in even thinking about more then just friendship with Trick. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to shake her occasionally for her inability to see what was right in front of her. Uber hot and sweet SWAT guy who was head over heels in love with her. But, I got it. Trick made me melt right from the get-go. Did you miss the part about uber hot SWAT guy? *melts again* This was a man that was just trying to find a way to be with the woman he loved and took an opportunity that landed in his lap to make it happen. Does that make his deceitfulness okay? I'll let you decide. I'll tell you one thing though, Trick's road to redemption was a heartrendingly good ride! And did I mention the sultry and inventive love scenes? Have a glass of ice ready ladies! 
    If you love contemporary romance with a little hot trickery involved I recommend you picking up Dirty Trick for a quick and satisfying read perfect for the fall season!

    In a word, this book is "delightful." The story revolves around Grace Love and Trick Matthews, two friends who are perfect for each other. Unfortunately, Grace is terrified of risking a relationship with Trick - she has been burned by love before and Trick has a bad track record as a reformed player that makes her wary. All this adds up to him desperately willing to do anything, and we mean anything, for Grace to see him as serious boyfriend material. Let's just say, he embarks on a mission that is sexy but certainly risky, to finally get her attention. (Hint - it involves a hot Halloween costume and a disguised voice). The writing is snappy and at times laugh out loud funny. I love Autumn and Halloween and it doesn't get much more fun and seasonally appropriate than Dirty Trick. 




    Their best friend and Grace's business partner, Serena, plays a key role and may be one of my favorite female characters in as long as I can remember. She is funny, sassy and a player in her own right. It looks like hers will be the next book and I am dying for the day her story comes out!

    Great Book! I am a huge Brazen fan and Dirty Trick by Christine

    Great Book!

    I am a huge Brazen fan and Dirty Trick by Christine Bell is an excellent addition to the imprint. This original story is well-written and flows nicely from beginning to end. The two main characters, matchmaker Grace Love and SWAT officer Trick Matthews are likeable, flirty and hot. Ms. Bell does a wonderful job of evolving the characters from the friend-zone into the love-zone by creating a unique storyline unlike any other I have read.

    Grace and her best friend Serena, own and manage an up and coming matchmaking company. Their firm is successful because once Serena reels in the client, Grace's incredible instincts and ability to understand people takes over, which enables her to conceive the perfect couple. It is interesting to note that neither Grace nor Serena are in a successful relationship. However, Grace's heart, mind and body always tingles whenever she is around Trick, her good friend and neighbor. However, due to a prior relationship that damaged her self-esteem, in addition to her desperate need to ensure Trick remains in her life, she never acts upon her feelings.

    Two things are very important to smart and hunky Trick Matthews, his job and Grace. In fact, he stopped playing the field over six months ago because his feelings for Grace are so strong. He wants to settle down and to prove to Grace that he is a changed man. So he institutes a plan that he believes will change her feelings about him from friend to lover.

    Trick's seduction techniques are steamy and wild. He certainly has Grace's attention. And due to Trick's encouragement, Grace's confidence and sexiness is slowly gaining strength. Once he is able to share his true self with Grace, they can find happiness together.

    This is an entertaining, sweet and sexy romance that should not be missed.

    Couldn't put it down!

    Excellent story that kept me wanting more. It was a new twist on the "friends to lovers" story. My only negative comment would be that the story ended abruptly. It didnt leave the ending up to you, but an epilogue would have been nice!!

    AWESOME!!

    I loved this book. It starts out kinda slow but picks up quick. And then things begin to heat up. And I mean like fire (heat up). The sex between Trick & Gracie is off the charts. I recommend this book to everyone. I have read several of Christine Bell's books and I love her writing. It's always just the right amount of sexual chemistry and sensuality between the characters along with a great story line.
