Publisher's Summary

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.

Low angst romance with FABULOUS narration!

Any additional comments?

Quent and Jason have been best friends since their college days. They are partners in every way except romantically, until one day Jace realizes that the one person he cannot live without is the one person who’s been living side-by-side with him all along.

Once they start their romantic relationship, Quent puts it all on the line, ready to have the life he’s always wanted with Jace. Jace quickly goes all in and the story chronicles their relationship through all it’s initial stages, rocky moments, mega-hot sexy times, and loving, romantic moments.

I really liked that Gambling Men is less angst-filled than most of Lane’s other stories. The characters enjoy real growth in the story without being put through any terrible wringers. I loved the side characters and the way Quent and Jace burn up the sheets. Finally, I absolutely loved and adored Gomez Pugh’s narration.

Gomez Pugh has never once let me down - he always gives an excellent performance that keeps me riveted.

There were two things that kept this from being a full knock-it-out-of-the-park story for me though. The overuse of all the gambling metaphors (I get it, okay? It’s “Gambling Men”, but come on…) and, ultimately, I kind of felt like it went on just a smidgeon too long.

Ultimately though, the story is a sweet, low angst, lovely romance with SUPER HOT sex and fabulous narration.

Take a gamble on this romance. You won't lose.

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.
