Julia Savage’s weekly poker games are tearing her apart. She’s in love with two of her fellow card players, and much as she’d like to pick and confess her true feelings to one man, she won’t. Not if it means risking the love of the other.My Thoughts: This was a freebie I downloaded back in December that kept getting pushed to the back of the TBR pile. The other day I decided that it was time to dive in and give this bad boy a try. Wow. Hot threesome action and poker games. Sweet. While the sex was hot and everything, the story got a boost when it delved into the past of one of the characters and had him deal with his repressed sexuality.
Hunter Miles has wanted Julia for four months, and he’s about to deal a hand she couldn’t see coming. He’s determined to give her a New Year’s Eve celebration she never expected. He’s going to seduce her—in front of his friend and rival for her affections, Jay Baxter. But Jay’s not willing to lay down his cards. He’s going after Julia too, and he’s not above bluffing to get what he wants. Either way, one of them is going to win her over.
Unless they change the rules of the game. If they double up, there’s a chance they can split the pot…
All in all, this was a quick, sexy read (I wouldn't have minded it being a bit longer) with a bit of heart behind it. There wasn't a ton of character development but, let's face it, that's not really why I was reading it in the first place. To recap: cards, sex, sex, sadness, happiness, sex. Pretty much in that order.
