    1. The Poker Night series features a group of 6 gay men (Zac, Bobby, Trey, Angelo, Marco and Kent) who have been friends for almost 4 years and get together to play poker, drink beer and have fun every other Saturday. As the series starts, they're all single, but it's obvious that each of them is destined to find their HEA as the series progresses.The 2nd book in the series, Slow-Play, is Bobby's story and picks up right after Texas Hold 'Em ended.Bobby Quinn comes from a wealthy family, but his re [...]

    2. 3.5*Again Carol Lynne gets a pass on something I normally hate, the one where the dead ex is first on a pedestal until the new lover is suddenly the best lover ever and 'I didn't really have that much in common with the dead guy and who knows if we would still be together' starts.But this is still such a sweet story of second chances for Jules and maybe his first real chance at being loved at all for Bobby.His family is a piece of work, and you can always rely on them getting their due in these [...]

    3. I liked this story a lot. I kind of put off reading it because i didn't like the guys in the first one but I loved them here. The end made me cry and I have to read the next one now

    4. The second in the Poker Night series is a nice may / december relationship, even if, apart telling the age of Jules, 43, there are no other hints that Jules is older than is lover Bobby.Jules is an handsome and lonely doctor, and also a very wealthy man. The money doesn't come from his work but from family; apparently Jules was born in a lovely family and he grew happy and confident. At college he met his first love, and lover, Morgan, and they were fated to be happy together. As all the young p [...]

    5. In this book, Bobby Quinn captains a beautiful boat that he spent years restoring. When he was hurt and unable to make payments, his brother swooped in and boat off the loan, forcing Bobby to work for him if he wants to be with his beloved ship. Dr. Jules Peter helped Zac and Eric get together in book one and as a thank you, they buy a chartered cruise for him. I really liked Bobby. He was a really nice, hard-working, blue collar guy who is struggling to build a life for himself. For some reason [...]

    6. I really, really liked this one. I have been putting off reading it for awhile because I was worried about the huge age difference between Bobby and Jules. But I wasn't bothered by it at all. It wasn't even the focus of the story. Both guys are trying to overcome the pain from loss, Jules from the loss of his lover and Bobby from the loss of his boat. I really liked them both and they were so sweet together. It was a little sad at times but not too angsty. Also, I think this one had less raunchy [...]

    7. Loved this story too!I'm a sucker for May/December romance and emotional baggage, so that was a pleasurable read for me. And it was nice to see all the other guys too, love them!I just want to say a couple of words about Bobby's family.Sure his brother behaved like an asshole, but with this whole situation when his dad cheated on Brad's mother with his secretary (Bobby's mom) and then divorced her - well I sure would hate the guts of my half-siblings in this situation too.

    8. Ok, I love this series, I am writing this after finishing the whole series and it is now one of my favorite of Carol Lynne's. For some reason I love these characters and it is easy to bond with each one in these short 100 pages stories. This series takes place around friends that play a biweekly poker game that have come together for over 4 yrs. This particular book is about Bobby and Jules. Bobby is from an affluent family, but has broken away on his own and works construction and on his trawle [...]

    9. I enjoyed this sweet & sexy read from prolific author, Carol Lynne. I've read several other books of hers including 1 - 6 of the "Cattle Valley" series, 1 & 2 of her "Campus Cravings" series, book 1 of the "Extinction Series" and an early true taboo story- "Stepping Stones" Being familiar with her work, I was looking forward to a good love story that would be chock-full of hot, graphic sex scenesI wasn't disappointed. This story did have the added bonus of featuring a slowly developing s [...]

    10. I like these stories, but they all seem to have the same common unfortunate theme of insta love/relationship, which really takes away from the story for me. I did enjoy this book better than the first, but there were just things that kept me from really loving it. I was happy when Jules decided to take things slow with Bobby. Except, the next night or so, Jules has an accident and Bobby gets called to pick him up. He takes him home and the next thing you know, they are naked and going to town. I [...]

    11. Bobby and Jules' relationship is so cute and down to earth. I adore how Jules treats Bobby like he deserves and he manages to change Bobby's opinion about rich people. I wanted to slap Brad so had for treating Bobby the way he has. Heck I wanted to slap the whole family, even Bobby's mother.This is a book that's so Carol Lynne and I adore it! If you're not a fan of her writing, then by all means skip this, but if you enjoy her stories then this is worth reading. The whole Poker Night series is w [...]

    12. 3.5 stars--Another fun read in this series--plenty of steam with a quick shot of angst thrown in. Although Bobby and Jules' story ends in a HEA, the book itself ends with a cliffhanger for one of the other poker players.

    13. This is a wonderful follow-up to the first book. I really enjoyed the love story between Bobby & Jules. Yes, I'm biased when it comes to age difference, but still it was fun seeing them fall in love, work out their problems and end up together after all. Recommended!

    14. Enjoyed reading a book where two guys have lost so much but still manage to come together and start over.
