All In with the Duke (Gambling on Love #1) by Ava March
Max Arrington, the Duke of Pelham, vows to never again let a handsome face blind him to a man's true intentions. But ten months of celibacy and lonely nights drive him to a decadent brothel, where a beautiful young man arouses his illicit passions as never before.
Tristan Walsh has grown tired of being used for men's pleasure. But his latest client is different: commanding yet generous, Max makes him feel cared for as well as wanted. Yet Tristan knows he'll never have the choice to leave the brothel and submit only to Max.
So when Max invites him to be his guest at his country estate, Tristan eagerly agrees to his terms—days to do as he pleases while Max tends to the dukedom, and nights spent together in wicked play. But when the "business arrangement" begins to deepen into something more, Tristan must face the fact that he has no true place in Max's life—or in Max's guarded heart…
I’m quite unimpressed with this story, although it goes with the almost “classical” whore-royalty path it ends up being as if the relationship is forced and fake.
Max is the duke of Pelham, after having his heart broken over the eyes of a manipulative lover he is determined to focus himself in managing his vast wealth.
Tristan Walsh is a beautiful prostitute, after gambling more than he owns he finds himself working at Rubicon’s.
When Max’s eye connect with Tristan’s there is instant attraction, but not the kind someone would expect from a prostitute but the kind that defines true lovers. There is no escaping their infatuation with each other, and when they are apart they fantasize of being together.
Their love making is HOT! The dirty talk AMAZING! And the kink enough to make it SPICY.
But… Yes, there is a but….I was expecting a kind of headache and pain a romance novel includes but Tristan’s decision left me speechless. The managing of their situation from that point onward made me conclude that this man will remain in his heart forever a prostitute no matter what everyone around him say, and that in my opinion is very very sad.
