Peek Inside Dirty Trick

Grace Love can spot a match for someone else a mile away, but the only guy who makes her sixth sense tingle is SWAT officer Trick Matthews. The problem?

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 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.


"Christine Bell really stepped up her game with her new Brazen book, Dirty Trick. Not even a page in and I was completely hooked!" --Words, Pages, and Books

"...the author immediately won me over simply by describing Trick as a Chris Hemsworth look alike. It was not a chore to imagine him in this role and add to that, Trick is a member of the SWAT team. Yep, I was sold!" --Mindy Lou's Book Reviews, Goodreads

"This is definitely one to read; it sizzles, but is perfectly balanced with fun and romance." --Nicola, Goodreads

Ok, the author immediately won me over simply by describing Trick as a Chris Hemsworth look alike. It was not a chore to imagine him in this role and add to that, Trick is a member of the SWAT team. Yep, I was sold!

Joking aside, this was a really cute and short read. I loved Trick and Grace as our ...more

This is Book one on the perfectly Matched Series.

I liked Trick, and I liked that he didn't want to leave his girl, “definitely. Absolutely. In fact, if I had my way, we’d be doing it again right now.” He flexed his hips to emphasize his point." I liked this book, I really liked Trick. ...more

There are some publishing houses that I've come to believe are always "safe bets" -- they have great editors and super writers - and the Entangled Brazen line is one of those sure things. At this point, I've yet to pick up ANY Entangled version that has disappointed... and DIRTY TRICK is a great exa ...more

Grace has a match making business she is very good at. At least for others, she can spot a match a mile away, but for herself.....not so great.

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 h ...more
