Nobody can beat Astra Scott in playing the hand she’s dealt.

Astra Scott likes to live life to the full. A sorority girl and Gaming Management student, she spends her days studying and practising guitar, and her nights partying or working at the Fountain Casino, where she has an internship as part of her final semester. The only blot on her landscape is Ash Drake, her best friend Sasha’s boyfriend. Arrogant, physical and blond, Ash has never forgiven Astra for her rejection months earlier and enjoys annoying her at every turn.

But when Astra’s boyfriend Harry reveals a shocking secret, Astra responds in the only way she can think of: by finding a way to take on a more attractive, masculine role in the relationship. Her experimentation with sex toys finds a surprising outlet in Sasha, but when Ash discovers their secret and wants to get involved, Astra finds herself torn between dislike and desire…and as their undercover relationship grows, Astra finds herself falling in love, a path she feels can only end in heartbreak. For Ash may be the only man whose own fantasies are a match for hers, but can she knowingly steal his affections from her best friend?

The Hand He Dealt is the debut novel for Tanith Davenport and can I say it was an absolutely fantastic read. In fact, I had to put everything around me on hold while I read this book.

I loved the storyline and the characters were well developed. I found myself falling for Ash and Astra and the way Miss Davenport brings these two unlikely people together is superb.

A book filled with beautiful romance, struggles, intense sexual tension as well as some brilliant pegging scenes.

This is a highly recommended, must read, one I will be reading again and soon. The Hand He Dealt has reminded me of the why I love reading new authors and I hope this is not the last we hear of Tanith Davenport.
