I find it hard to believe Grace would put up with half of what Trick puts her through. Still, I've read far worse books in this genre. The ending is very rushed.

My review from Goodreads listed below:
Tricked Truth by Beth Kery
I don’t usually clarify my star rating but I felt I needed to with this story. I rated it a 2.5 in my head but gave it 3 stars in Goodreads. That extra nudge was simply because it’s a Beth Kery story. I almost always enjoy her stories to a varying degree, from good to very good except this story. Oh...and except Velvet Cataclysm which I didn’t like at all. Her writing style in this book is a bit like poetry in the way she uses her words. Okay maybe not poetry but I don’t know the word to describe it so here is an example. “The amount of incendiary material he’d built up for Grace must have been monumental.” See what I mean? The whole story is written like this, different.
Now on to my thoughts about this story.
First off Grace is NOT Trick’s mother-in-law. She was married to Trick’s father Evan, so she is his stepmother! Grace is described as his mother-in-law in the Goodreads synopsis and also several times in the story, talk about confusing and not a good start to this book. This story did get a bit better as it unfolded and the characters took shape for me.
Trick was an asshat to Grace from the word go. Grace was a strong, assertive woman with everyone but…Trick. For the most part, Grace was Tricks whippy post, figuratively speaking that is—and she let him. That’s the part I disliked most, her hypnotic like acceptance of his treatment. I understood it sure and it was explained at the end but I don’t have to like it though.
Then there was the mad dash to the end of the story where explanations’ and secrets were revealed. The ending was just too rushed for me. I needed more closure

Loved this book! It was intense (similar in some aspects to Come to Me Freely). There is a HEA, but you don't always see it coming. Please write more Beth!!!
