On every visit to Madame Delacroix's brothel, Nathaniel Travers requests the same man. Stunningly handsome and highly skilled, Jasper not only shares Nate's fondness for wickedly erotic games and black leather corsets, but he has become a trusted confidant. And Jasper's the only person who knows Nate longs for a committed relationship with his childhood friend, Peter Edmonton. Unrequited love hurts, but it hurts even more when the object of affection is in love with another.
Jasper Reed has been working at Delacroix's for a decade. He's saved enough to retire, yet he remains at the decadent London brothel. Leaving would mean leaving Nate and the hope that someday the rugged gentleman would stop pining for his best friend and realize he loves Jasper, just as Jasper loves him.
Edmonton's impending marriage looms before them, causing Jasper to take another look at his stubborn heart. Yet Jasper's a bastard whore, and Nate's the nephew of a viscount. Surely there can't be any hope for them....

Oh yes, another great historical romance from Ava March. This was not one of my favorites, but still really enjoyable. It is told from both MCs POV. Jasper works in a brothel ad Nate is a long time client. Jasper falls in love with Nate, but Nate is in love with his straight best friend. Not a new story, but in the time period and of this coming out could mean death. It is a sweet story of how Nate finally gets his head out of his ass and realizes what is right in front of him. The narrator does a wonderful with the accents of the period and brings this story to life. A really nice comfort read.
