- 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.
