Since the death of his father, Trick Grigsby has fought to keep his head above water. Following in his father’s footsteps as a talented architect, he hopes to work his way up at the firm. Unfortunately, the company’s new owner barely resembles the man who was once Trick’s father’s best friend. Trick’s days are filled with drudgery and cruel remarks from the man who was supposed to be his mentor—along with his two sons, whose only jobs seem to be making Trick’s life miserable.
But all that is about to change.
Edwin Goodmaker struggled through his fairy godparent curriculum, but his mother—the reigning Fairy Queen—has a simple solution: Edwin will go to New York City and get some practical experience. When he meets Trick, Edwin knows he’s found a worthy charge, and he’s sure he can help Trick achieve all of his heart’s desires. Edwin falls for Trick, but with everything standing in their way, a fairy-tale ending might remain nothing more than a dream.
His Fairy Godfather was massively cute and sparkly. And who wouldn't want a little bit of magic in their lives?
Trick Grigsby has been slaving away at what used to be his father's architectural firm, since his father's death 10 years ago. Now the firm is being run by the man that was his father's best friend and partner, but, Mr. Redden is more like Mr. Scrooge, only more of a jerk. Trick puts up with the man and his sons only because of his father's memory and his hopes of buying in as partner one day. One day far far into the future, though, because Mr.
Edwin Goodmaker is an apprentice Fairy Godfather. He's had some trouble mastering some of his powers, and being the son of the Fairy Queen, the pressure is on. When he gets sent to New York City for some practical application, with the hopes that Edwin will have an easier time of it, Edwin is so excited. And New York is enchanting! When Edwin runs into - quite litterally - Trick, one day, he knows he's found a worthy charge. And Edwin just knows that he can help Trick to achieve his dreams.
I thought Edwin and Trick were too damn adorkable together. Getting to see New York City through Edwin's eyes was nothing short of magical. And that was something that Trick really needed, too. He had been working so hard, for so long, for so little, Trick had forgotten how to appreciate the beauty of life. I just wish he'd seen his self worth a little sooner, because watching him take such horrible abuse from Redden and his sons, time and time again, made me a little grumpy.
But Edwin's innocence and joyful wonder put my mood right again and through him, Trick also found his own self worth. And it was gorgeous. Plus, I found the wrap-up of Trick's dreams very satisfying and the HEA was like all the Christmases at once. With sparkles and fairy dust.
