Faith put her life on hold for years to care for her ailing father. She gave up a lot, and I couldn’t help but admire her kindness, loyalty, and determination. I adored her spunk, especially when she put Grant in his place and unknowingly made him work harder for her affections.
Once Faith finally decided to take a little happiness for herself and gave in to the overwhelming attraction, their passion erupted in scenes hot enough to rock worlds. Grant was a master at dirty talk and relaxing her inhibitions. Faith was so open and uninhibited that it amped up the heat level even more.
Quick Trick was a fast, fun, hella hot kick off to this new series. There was only a brief glimpse of Grant’s teammates who’ll be featured in the rest of the series. I can’t wait for book two to meet the next Rough Rider.
And then I got to the first sex scene. I love a good sex scene, please don't misunderstand me, I have NOTHING against sex scenes. And, I know that I'm probably in the minority here so please don't throw rocks on me for my opinion, but I am SO OVER the rich, powerful alpha male who swaggers in and growls at the sweet, innocent girl, making her totally flip her personality and have “edgy” rough sex with him. It seems like every book nowadays is fifty shades of cliché with dirty talk, spanking, sex toys, hair pulling, and “magic sticks” that just make the girl suddenly go buckwild and do things that she would never have done before. I actually rolled my eyes more than once during the sex scenes (especially the one that took place outside – seriously? Faith is so overwhelmed by his magic sexiness that she's going to just let him do that to her where anyone in town could see? I don't buy it from HER of all characters). I wound up skimming over every sex scene. NOT because the writing was bad, because it wasn't because Ms. Jordan has SERIOUS writing skill, but because they just didn't seem to fit into the book. I cannot wait for the “fifty shades aggressive sex” trend to go away because this book didn't need spanking, hair pulling, or awkwardly dominant sex scenes wedged into a sweet book to make it enjoyable – the story was already really great on its own. This book would have been a five star book for me if it weren't for these scenes that just didn't fit into the overall tone of the book for me. Again, this is just my opinion, so thank you for not attacking me for it.
The story that this book tells is wonderful, and I really fell for both characters (even if Grant was a bit of a tool at times with his Mr. Important shtick). I was really invested in whether Faith would be okay and whether or not they got their HEA. Ms. Jordan has a real talent for writing romance and characters who are incredibly likable. Even if the sex isn't my thing, her story writing is, so I will definitely give the rest of this series a try.
Grant Saber has broken away from his normal routine due to a shoulder injury & is spending Christmas with his family in his hometown of Holly. He has been pushed to do some volunteer work in the town with the high school hockey team and has a few weeks before he will be released to return back to his team. He is anxious but the break will do him good.
Faith Nicholas was the owner of the town hardware store. She took over the store from her father and it was something that she fought to keep going. Everyone expected her to continue to do as her father did and that caused some issues for her.
Grant had to ask for Faith's assistance and this started a friendship. The friendship that they began was something that they both needed. The more they were around each other the more they opened up and learned about the other. This helped them in their own situations.
With Faith and Grant, they truly grow on you as a reader. They don't automatically fall into each other's arms and they don't have any unrealistic expectations of life. Faith has had a hard life to the due to the circumstances that are put in front of her and how people treat her. She is left with very few people in her corner. That is part of what brings her and Grant together. Grant has a honesty about him even though he is somewhat dense about what a woman is thinking (but he is a man!!)
So with that in mind, they made it work and it worked out well!
Grant comes to the last place he really wants to be, his home town to spend the holidays with his family during his medical r&r from hockey.
He never expects to run in to the it girl he crushed on in high school.
Faith is running her father's store after his passing but she finds herself struggling and lonely. When Grant, who she doesn't immediately recognize hits on her she dismisses him right away as the player he is. But once she gets to know him she finds herself drawn to him. There's just one problem, he is leaving to go back to his real life soon. A life she doesn't really fit in with.
