Infamous Rough Riders’ playboy Grant Saber has been sidelined for a bum shoulder. If he has to be off the ice for three weeks of recovery, he‘ll do it on his back—breaking in a new wanna-be cowgirl every night. But pressure from the team’s owner and Grant’s parents land him in his hometown of Holly, North Carolina instead. Things look up when he learns the hometown beauty who was once so out of his league is now single, and sexier than ever. Determined to slip in a night with her while he’s in town, Grant is shocked to discover one will never be enough.
Faith Nicholas has no interest in the newest Saber-son gossip. After losing her father just months before, she is now on the verge of losing their family hardware store—which is also her home. She couldn’t care less about the Saber’s big money or flashy toys. But she can’t seem to keep Grant out of her store--or her dreams. His magnetic charisma is impossible to ignore, and the longer he stays in town, the more she finds to love about a man who isn’t as superficial as he’d like others to believe.
With a struggling store, four-hundred miles and a rigorous hockey season looming between them, Grant will have to pull out his very best moves if he’s going to make this quick trick last forever.
*Author's note* Previously published as a novella (Home Advantage) in an anthology, this work has never been published independently. It had been rewritten, expanded and overhauled to current Skye Jordan standards... if you know what I mean. *evil grin*
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
This was a weird experience, now let me tell you why. Quick Trick is a revamped version of Home Advantage, part of the All He Wants For Christmas Anthology only with a revised plot line, way more content and a different name for one of the main characters. It gave me a bit of a déjà vu feeling but at the same time it was like I wasn’t remembering things quite right. Hence the weirdness I felt while reading it.
Grant is back home for Christmas after being away for many years. Used to a completely different lifestyle now, the famous hockey hunk can’t wait to get out of the Christmas extravaganza that is Holly, North Carolina. That is until his mother sends him to pick up the tree and he catches sight of Faith who now owns the hardware store. Always being out of his reach during high school, he decides she’ll be a great way to make the most of his time in town *wink wink*
Only Faith has no idea who he is and doesn’t seem to care about his status, money or charm once she learns his identity. This moves Grant to make it his mission to charm the pants off her, literally.
Faith has enough going on in her life to let some hockey star seduce her for one night, but when Grant keeps showing up at her store with any and every house repair he could come up with her resolve starts to wane.
With the time they are spending together, they start to get to know one another, and soon they realize there’s more to the other than they’d expected.
Grant was just as great now as he was before: charming, charismatic, sexy and really bossy in the bedroom (a definite plus). He surprised even himself with his depth, and that was what ultimately won Faith over.
“I came back because you felt like home to me. And I don’t want to let that go. I don’t want to let you go.”
Faith was sweet, caring and all around good-girl-next-door. I was miffed about her stubbornness to give Grant a chance, but as this was not really new, I could be patient with her.
They were really sweet together, their sexy shenanigans were off the freaking charts hot and I had a fantastic time reading Quick Trick. I can’t wait to get the meet the rest of the Rough Riders and their stories.
