Madame Delacroix's brothel offers a host of services. Nathaniel Travers has become a frequent visitor over the past five years; his itch only scratched by one of the many who offer services at the brothel, Jasper Reed. Their connection has flourished over the years and allows Nathaniel to divulge information he knows cannot be shared with others. Their late meals and conversations have come to mean a great deal to him, but is it enough to help Nathaniel release the feelings he harbors for his best friend, Peter?

After a decade of working at the brothel, Jasper Reed finally has enough means to close this chapter of his life. His only reason for staying has been the visits from Nathaniel. Jasper made the ultimate mistake and fell in love with His Client. Nathaniel’s reaction to news concerning Peter makes Jasper face a truth he never wanted to admit, that the love he feels may never be returned.

Will Jasper get the love he so desperately deserves, or is he destined to enter his new life in the country alone?

Ava March’s historical novels are definitely some of my favorite stories. His Client takes us back to Madame Delacroix's brothel. The staff knows how to do more than just keep their clients sexually charged. They invoke emotions strong enough to fuel their desire for fulfilling relationships with like-minded men.

Jasper’s love of someone deemed unattainable isn’t a new storyline but the presentation makes it well worth the read. It was easy to see that Nathaniel cared for Jasper. Until the veil was lifted from his eyes, he had no idea how deeply those emotions ran. I wasn’t sure if he would let the best thing in his life get away but was happy with his final decision.

The BDSM is light and chock-full of imagery. I could hear the ripping and panting with each sentence. See the stained lips and almost smell the lust floating in the air. I definitely enjoyed His Client and would recommend it to those who read the genre.
