Quent Jackson has followed Jason Spade's every move in business and in poker since their first day as college freshmen. Eight years later, when Jace finally decides Quent is the one man he can't live without, he sees no reason for that to change.
But as much as Jace believes that poker is life, no one gave Quent the same playbook. After their first passionate night, the real game of love and trust begins, and Jace has been playing alone too long to make teaching the rules easy. Jace only speaks two languages: one of them is sex, and the other one is poker. Between the two, he needs to find a way to convince himself to take a chance on love - and Quent to take a chance on him. It's a lucky thing they're good at reading the odds, because they're playing for keeps, and this is one high-stakes relationship that's definitely worth the gamble.

Jace has two loves in his life. Gambling and his best friend, Quinton. They have been friends since college, walk, roommates for a while, started their own business and did almost everything together. They play Raquetball, walk, work and go to monthly gambling where Jace most always wins.
Quinton has always loved Jace. Finally one night on a bet they end up together and begins dating.
This is a very sweet story of two men that have loved each other but were afraid to say so to the other. The story is mainly about the progression of their relationship and coming out to friends and family. It's a sweet story that has scorching sex scenes. Lots of them. It has lots of gambling analogy and metaphors. That was one of my biggest problems with the story was there was just so many. Almost everything they said or did was related to gambling. In my opinion, it was just a little overboard. Having said that, the main idea of the story and the romance was excellent.
This is my first book narrated by Gomez Pugh. I think he did a wonderful job. His voice is great, his enunciation is clear and i loved his take on the sex scenes. I do wish there had been a bit more difference in Quint and Jace's voice but the story was written well enough it was pretty clear who was talking and when.
If you like sweet romance, friends to lovers,gambling and some very hot man sex you should take a gamble on this. I bet you will like it.
Amy Lane has two kids in college, two gradeschoolers in soccer, two cats, and two Chi-who-whats at large. She lives in a crumbling crapmansion with most of the children and a bemused spouse. She also has too damned much yarn, a penchant for action adventure movies, and a need to know that somewhere in all the pain is a story of Wuv, Twu Wuv, which she continues to believe in to this day! She writes fantasy, urban fantasy, and m/m romance--and if you accidentally make eye contact, she'll bore you to tears with why those three genres go together. She'll also tell you that sacrifices, large and small, are worth the urge to write.
