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.

Crystal's Thoughts:
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!
