Inhaltsangabe zu „Viscount's Wager (Gambling on Love)“ von Ava March

You never forget your first love, but is a second chance worth the gamble? Anthony, Viscount Rawling, knows exactly what he wants in life and he isn't above having a look about London for it. When he spots recently widowed Gabriel Tilden at a ton function, he thinks he might have found love…again. Gabriel is as gorgeous and reserved as he was when he broke Anthony's heart seven years ago. But they were only adolescents then…surely Anthony won't hold the incident against him. And especially not when the attraction between them is stronger than ever. Gabriel came to London in search of distraction, and a teasing Anthony is impossible to resist. As Anthony introduces Gabriel to the pleasures that can be found in the city—and in his bedchamber—their bond deepens into something more. Yet both men are hiding secrets that could pull them apart forever…

Weakest in the series. Hated the MCs, also way too sappy.

  • Weakest part of the series. Over the top and sappy to the core

    As a young boy of 16 Anthony met Gabriel at a house party and they shared a kiss. Anthony thought he found "the one" but the next day Gabriel was seen kissing another girl and went on to marry her.Seven years later Gabriel's wife just died and Anthony meets Gabriel in London. They rekindle their old feelings, but Gabriel proves elusive, just showing up at Anthony's place for a tumble in the bedroom now and then before disappearing again.So, I liked the first two parts of the series just fine. but this one did not work for me. I could not stand the main characters at all. Gabriel's constant guilt over one thing or the other got annoying very fast and I hated how he treated Anthony like a convenient fuck-buddy even though in his own head he was always going on about how much he adored and loved him. Shitty way to show that.I liked the glimpses we got of Anthony in the other book, but here he seemed quite different. He just let Gabriel walk over him again and again because he loves him so much. The whole thing just did not feel like a healthy relationship at all. Also, all that seemed left from his teasing nature was replying "Do you?" to everything. Both men just did not inspire me to get invested in their relationship.And then the end. The whole "one kiss at 16, destined forever" thing felt so sappy and over the top. Entirely unbelievable. I like my romance a little more balanced, a little more on the realistic side. Happy ends are nice, for this one everyone was just way too understanding and nice, that it did feel more like a fairy tale than a romance.Also, I caught the "solution" for both of their problems after just quarter of the book or less, so there wasn't really much suspense. It was just so very on the nose.
