4.5 stars

*Reviewers note: Quick Trick was released last year in an anthology What He Wants for Christmas under the name Home Advantage. The book has been expanded from its novella length, the characters developed more, and some of the names have been changed but it is still a sweet, sexy and enjoyable romance.

NHL hockey star Grant Saber returns home for the Christmas holidays while rehabbing a shoulder injury. He isn't all that happy to be home as his relationship with his family is a strained and complicated one, but when he is sent to pick up the family's Christmas tree and sees Faith Nicholas again after so many years he begins to think being back in Holly might not be so bad.

At first Grant came off as a bit of an entitled a$$, but the more time he spent in town the more his real personality came out. We see that he is kind, considerate and caring and despite his celebrity likes helping the people he cares about. While a bit cocky and confused as to why Faith hasn't brought up his celebrity status, he enjoys visiting Faith's hardware store while working on little projects around his parent's home. I liked that Faith intrigued him, that she wasn't fawning over him as he was use to and that he appreciated her work ethic and spunky attitude.

While Faith was attracted to Grant she wasn't interested in being just another notch on his bedpost, but with his daily visits to her store for supplies she became more interested in him, began to see all his layers and grew to understand that underneath his overconfident attitude was a pretty good guy.

Their romance was not without issues; Faith was a bit insecure about Grant's past womanizing and Grant knew he'd have to return to his team soon but the passion between them burned brightly and the more time the spent together it became evident they had something pretty special going on.

With the Christmas season as a backdrop, a bit of small town hockey thrown in for good measure, and a whirlwind romance Quick Trick was extremely enjoyable.
