Sergeant Stephen Miranda responds to a disturbance call in front of one of the nightclubs in downtown Phoenix. The issue was quickly resolved so Stephen walks back to his patrol car, only to find a smiling young man leaning there; Zachary West, having had a few too many cocktails in addition to being a law-abiding citizen, is in need of a designated driver to deliver him safely home.

Gambling On Maybe is an amusing sexy snippet. The characters are believable. Zach has a vivacious personality that unconsciously persuades people around him to smile or stare in confusion. Zach wears designer fashions and makes no apology for his natural sexuality. Although very much attracted to Stephen, Zach is also aware of how images can have a negative impact on his career. With this in mind, Zach leaves the dating decision up to Stephen. The one intimate night Stephen shared with Zach is not enough for Stephen. Always concerned about his profession before, in–the-closet Stephen is wondering if work is worth the loss of his happiness. Fae Sutherland has created a fantastic short story that I enjoyed.
