I absolutely loved this story!!! It was a beautiful, extremely steamy, best friends-to-lovers story. Since it starts when they first get together as lovers, the entire book is about them working through this new side of their relationship. They have their hardships to deal with, but they come through everything together. Quent is the easy-going sweetheart that everybody likes, and Jace is the hardhead that needs Quent to keep him grounded. I enjoyed watching each of them finding different ways to prove to each other that they would love each other forever.
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.
