Double Shot (Long Shots #1)
More lists with this book...
Now I have to read everything Christine d'Abo wrote.
Plot - Your average erotica book (in a nutshell). Sexual tension then more sexual tension then actual sex (threesome) then awkward after sex then I LOVE YOU! then Should I call, or not to call... then I will call then sex (twosome) then THE END!
Writing - Nice. Nothing ...more
The set up for this book from the book summary is Coffee shop owner Sadie Long has been lusting after her good friend Paul Williams for years. So she's more than a little intrigued when he invites her to a business meeting at Mavericks, the sex club where he works.
This was a fast quick read, one I wish would have been longer. I think there is a story about Josh and Paul that needs to be to ...more
Got this e-book from Netgalley - It comes out The first week of October - so watch for the recommend :)
Hot stuff with this book! WOW! *blush* I love a good threesome :)
This story is really great - It starts off with Sadie meeting her good friend Paul at his club - well a club he manages with his friend Josh - Sadie and Paul have been friends for a good 10+ years - and although Sadie has wanted to get together with Paul since her friend and his Ex introduced them, sh ...more

This story has the usual m/f as well as m/f/m, and some brief moments of m/m/f, ménages.
“Hang on a second.” He covered the microphone of his cell and flashed her a grin. “I want you to think about my question.”
She frowned, tucking a loose lock of her hair behind her ear with a self-conscious pass.
”What is your fantasy? Because I really want to know.”
With that simple question, things between Sadie Long and Paul Williams go fro...more
I have still not recovered from this amazing scorching hot novel! Fortunately, it's summer and I had an excuse to fan myself or unbutton my shirt... If not, I would have melted from mere words!
I really liked the style and sensuality released by Christine d'Abo in "Sexcapades", so I've decided to throw myself on her erotic series "The Long Shots."
The synopsis of this first volume made my temperature raise a few fahrenheit by only letting me imagine Sadie's and Paul's amorous ...more
Paul is in charge of pulling together a party for Mavericks and instantly thinks of Sadie. This gives Paul the opportunity to get closer to Sadie. While they meet to discuss the party he asks her what h ...more
One was Sadie, she had no self confidence. It seemed like at every turn she was putting herself down. But then at the end she did a 180 and was very confident in herself, that didn't really match with what we had learned about her so far. I also hated the game of Sadie says. She had never been in a threesome before and they were making her take charge which seemed odd to me.
Another thing that drove me nuts was Paul's re ...more
This story started out as a fun, flirty story about two friends who each harbored feelings for the other. While there was a sexual undertone to the attraction, I couldn't help feel that the desire went much deeper. As Sadie discusses the details of the catering event she's just agreed to, her thoughts wander to all the possibilities and situations she can imagine with Paul and we see how deeply rooted her attraction to Paul is. Thinking about ...more
This was a good story, though short. The build up of Paul and Sadie's relationship is full of tension and fun. I would have liked more story building around the three siblings, but for a short story what we got wasn't bad. They seem to have a fun, supportive relationship.
Paul's subtle challenging of Sadie's emotional bounda ...more
The book ended with Paul and Sadie together, but Paul and Josh were a stronger couple.
There are better romances and better PWP out there. This book fell through the cracks.

Now her friend Paul has provided her with the perfect opportunity to show them this is just what their business needs.
The challenge is to cater an event for eighty plus members of the exclusi ...more
Friends becoming lovers is a storyline I am always leery of reading. Generally they end as friend with benefits and then fizz out. In this one, Sadie and Paul get their kink on! Sadie is the middle child in the Long family. The three siblings own a cool coffee shop which they are trying to run together. I love sibling stories and friends becoming lovers and family helping each other. Between these t ...more

What a hot little book! I loved this one. This is a friends to lovers trope and you all know that I love that!
Sadie owns a coffee and catering shop with her brother and sister. She has been friends with Paul for ten years and has lusted after him for most of that time, but Paul has never been interested. What Paul is interested in is having the Sadie do some catering for a party at the sex club, Mavericks. While discussing the details of the party, Paul pushes Sadie to reveal her fanta ...more
I never learned to write reviews about adult books. I just don't feel comfortable for some reason but I don't want that to stop me from expressing my feelings for the book...
The book was quite short. Just eight chapters of so but they were eight awesome chapters about Sadie and Paul. Two very good friends that have avoided their feeling for each other just because they didn't want to blur the line between them and their friendship.
This is the first of the Long Shot novellas. The Long siblings Sadie, Paige and Ian run and own Pulled Long coffee shop and Bakery.
Double Shot is Sadie Longs tale of finally getting together with her long time lusting crush on her friend Paul.
Sadie is the quieter middle sister, with a tendency to be a bit nonexistent. I didn't feel much for Sadie. She was a bit bland in character until she surprised me by not only voicing her fantasy to Paul but following through.
This is a very sexy m ...more
I really enjoyed Double Shot. Christine d'Abo is a new author to me and I will definitely be keeping an eye on this series as well as other books that she writes.
Although I enjoy short stories or novellas, I do prefer a bit of a longer book. It just seems like either the book feels unfinished or rushed if it is under 30,000 words. I would prefer 50,000 words plus. Then again if you are in the mood for a fun and HOT short story then this book is perfect ...more
My thoughts on any of my Goodreads reviews are only my opinion as a reader. I don't post anything ...more
