  • Gambling Men by Amy LaneTitle: Gambling Men
  • Author: Amy Lane
  • Series: N/A
  • Genre(s): Contemporary, M/M
  • Publisher:  Dreamspinner Press, May 2012

  • Length: 220 pages

  • Quick blurb:
  • Quick review: A few too many heavy-handed metaphors take the focus away from the characters.
  • Grade: B-

And it was poker – the water they swam in; the air they breathed; the language they spoke; the solid, bass, masculine sound of love that had no soft edges.

I always love Amy Lane’s characters and gorgeous writing, but the combination of poker AND hunting metaphors got to be too much by the end.

Also: I think hairless dude on the cover must spend a LOT of money on manscaping.
