I have all of the Megan Hart that are on Audible and this is another great one. It was nice to see her introduce some characters for other books. I was on the edge of my seat the last few hours thinking it was going to end a certain way but it went another.....love it! The narrator also did a great job!!
I guess it made it into the erotic section because of the bondage stuff...but this book is TAME by normal bondage standards (assuming there are bondage standards), it was pretty vanilla. I really enjoy books that can bring my emotions through and this book does, I was really angry in parts, cried in others and laughed in others. Lauren Dane is an excellent author and Isabelle Gordon did a great job with the narration.
I really liked this book, it kept me guessing and there are a lot of twists that just sneak up on you. I am surprised this didn't fall into the erotic section as well as romance, I am not complaining but if you don't like sex scenes in your book this is not for you. There are quit a few sex scenes but they don't detract from the overall book, they are the dark Fae after all, the sex just pulls you further into the story.
I can't wait until April for the next one!!
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I have a major author crush on Christine d'Abo. I fell in love with this trilogy with ease, and I attribute that to d'Abo's ability to show, not tell what her characters are feeling, and she didn't unnecessarily drag out the drama or conflict portions of each couple. I also loved that she took the time to focus on the family dynamics of the Longs and showed us upfront who they were at their core. To me, they never felt like fictional characters. Despite the individual stories being short, the events never felt rushed. D'Abo was also wickedly creative with some of the erotic scenes. I laughed, I burned and I melted. This is one of those those books I'll be revisiting often for the emotional and sexual high and the awwws. If you're looking for a scorching hot, kinky read, with a dash of heart and humor, then this is the series for you. I am absolutely going to start collecting more of Ms d'Abo's books.
My only issue is the books are recorded out of order. Below is the order they should be in, however, the recording starts Shot in the dark
Book #1 - Double Shot
Sadie Long has had a crush on Paul Williams for the past decade. They've been friends for just as long, but she won't do anything to risk that friendship. When Paul requests her catering services for Mavericks (the sex club where he works), things change with one question: What's your fantasy, Sadie?" Dare she tell him?
There was one line from Sadie's very naughty thoughts that made me spit out my drink and laugh out loud. Something about brains. - Book contains M/F and M/F/M
Book #2 - A Shot in the Dark
Paige Long, sister and self-appointed mother hen to her two younger siblings feels a spark for the first time in years when gorgeous firefighter Carter West strolls into her coffee shop one evening. His attempts to flirt with her don't go so well when she realizes he's a Dom. Her last relationship ended because of emotional and physical abuse at the hands of her boyfriend and Master. Getting involved with the lifestyle once again and with Carter could end in the past repeating itself, or it might give her everything she's wanted but denied herself. But first she will have to face her past and summon the courage to let Carter in.
Book #3 - Pulled Long
For nearly a year, Ian Long and Blue Eyes aka Jeff Carson (a recurring customer/character since book 1) have been flirting furiously. Then Ian found out that Jeff was in the middle of a divorce with his soon to be ex-wife. Ian can't and won't allow himself to be used as an experimental rebound. But one night Ian's resolve leaves him, and he allows himself to get lost in his fantasy. When they take things public at a company function and get caught, Ian's immense guilt from his past threatens to overshadow his future.
Ian and Jeff were so good together, it's difficult to describe. I also liked getting the big picture about the Long's parents and what had happened to them. With Ian's story, Long Shots came full circle. - Book contains M/M, voyeurism, exhibitionism
