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.
I loved Faith and her personality. I felt bad for her loss of her father and her looniness, especially this first Christmas. Her hardware store is barely staying above water, and she is trying to do anything she can to bring in more money. Her best friend, Taylor has her own business doing YouTube videos and Taylor wants Faith to try them out to make money. There are some good people in the small town such as Dwayne who Grant is helping teach hockey to some younger children. Of course you always have the few who cause trouble such as Natalie who wants a piece of Grant. She likes to cause trouble for Faith and was not my favorite person. I liked seeing how Grant chanced from such a womanizer and fake person to someone who could love and had a lot to offer as a person. I loved the story and strongly encourage you to read the book.
