Sharp Love (Gambling on Love #2) by Ava March

This is the second book in the Gambling on Love Series.  The first book was good so I had high hopes for this one as well.  Check out the cover and Goodreads blurb:

London, 1822

William Drake has lived among thieves, bastards and beggars all his life, doing what's necessary to survive. As a young orphan, that included looking after his best friend, Jack Morgan. But as they grew older, Jack took the honest path, leaving Will behind to fend for himself the only ways he knows how.

When an unsavory errand for his employer brings Jack back to London's underbelly, he needs Will's help. It's there, among the alleys they ran through as children, that the love he's always felt for Will returns. As their nights together grow hotter, Will discovers something new about his old friend—Jack's need to serve extends into the bedchamber.

Will has never fully abandoned his dream of escaping London with Jack. But what could the Duke's driver want with a dishonest cheat like him, beyond a bit of rough sex? It takes the gamble of Will's life to find out if he can win Jack's heart…

Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: D/s theme and elements, and male/male sexual practices.

Jack and Will have a beautiful friendship. They truly do. I also liked that Will had such a simple goal in mind for his life. He just wanted to make enough money to buy his own place in the country where he could garden and live a quiet life. He may have to count cards to do it but he has a noble goal. Jack is blind to the nobleness inside his friend. They have so much to overcome if they want to be together but a little bit of trust can go a long way to make it happen.  I really enjoyed reading this book because it was realistic.  It reminds us that nothing in life will ever happen just as we think it will.  Sometimes, we need to trust in others to give us a helping hand.  All in all, this is a beautiful love story.
