On the surface, Raphael has everything he needs: good friends, a title, and membership to the decadent Hunt Club where forbidden pleasure can be had at a moments notice. Pretending is not what he wants. Expectations by family and friends keep his feelings for Lord Claymore at bay. When his best friend returns to London in a black mood, Rafe sets out to cheer him up and make Claymore’s upcoming birthday an event to remember.

Shaken and uneasy of his growing attraction to men, James has reached an uncomfortable crossroads in his well-ordered, respectable life. Plans to end his torment on his birthday are mere days away. However, his intention to explore forbidden passion just once comes unstuck. Can James follow through with his well-reasoned, sensible decision when a man who knows what he wants, needs him too?

I am a sucker for friends-to-lovers romances and make it a historical MM romance, and I’m in reader nirvana. This totally fit my craving! Rafe has a full life but even his carnal escapades at exclusive Hunt Club leave him unfulfilled. He’s been in love with his best friend, James, since childhood but Rafe would never burden his friend with his desires. James has lived his life for his family and his title; he craves giving in to his attraction to men, though he never imagined Rafe would be interested. This isn’t an angsty read but instead just the delightful romp of two men who decide to deepen their friendship. I loved watching Rafe show James the sexual ropes but both men still holding on to their friendship. The historical elements didn’t overwhelm the story but added a little intrigue in how James and Rafe could make a romantic relationship work. I liked this novella so well that I went back and bought the first three in the series (loved book 3!) I will be on the look out for this author now as I love well written gay historical romance.
