An Unexpected Win by Jenna Byrnes

 A game of poker sets the stage to change three men’s lives forever.

Carter Perry is playing the poker hand of his life. The game is no limit Texas hold ’em, and he has a hand that no self-respecting player could toss. Unfortunately, the pot is growing steeper by the minute and Carter’s wallet is nearly empty. He’s had a few drinks and when he runs out of money he decides to offer up the one thing of value he’s got left—his submissive. For one night.

Trey Mitchell’s been watching the game from his knees, at the side of the table with the other subs. He knew going into the game that the stakes were high, but his Master is a professional poker player and he has never dreamt that the man might lose against a table of amateurs. Tension is thick as the hands are revealed. Carter goes ballistic when he loses, but hands over Trey’s leash to the handsome, hunky Native American who goes by the name of ‘Hawk’.

Yuma Nighthawk has his eye on Trey all night long and for him, the poker game couldn’t have ended better. Assuring Carter that he’ll take care of his sub in accordance with the rules set out by the Rose & Thorn Society, he instructs his own submissive, Kel, to make sure a drunken Carter gets home safely. He has other plans, which include ravishing Trey and hatching a plot to make the man his own.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of ménage in a polyamorous relationship between three men, references to TPE and fisting.
This is book four of the Rose and Thorn Society series but can be read as standalone.

We start the book with Carter losing at poker and because of a bad bet losing his sub, ‘trey’ for a week because of it. Hawk, has trey for one night and decides he wants to keep him, that he is exactly what he has been looking for all this time. The problem is trey already has a master, Carter.

This novella is packed with emotions from all sides. Not just sexual but healing and growing. I liked that Hawk was willing to step up and help another Dom when in need and trey did actually have a mind of his own. Well played Ms. Jenna, well played.
