But one story had some really hot guy sex scenes.
Three erotic romance stories. They are placed in the wrong order in the audiobook. Story 1 shows Blue Eyes meeting Ian. Story 2 shows their continuing interaction. But Story 2 is placed first on the audiobook which was unsettling because events were out of order. I am guessing the producers did this to put the bdsm story first - thinking it’s the hottest? Riding the popularity wave from Fifty Shades of Grey? I was annoyed. Following is the order they appear in the audiobook.
2 stars. A SHOT IN THE DARK (#2)
There were about three sex scenes, two very long. He gives her orders. There is spanking, other pain things, and rear door activity. I’ve enjoyed other bdsm stories, but not this one. I felt self conscious and uncomfortable. They meet and immediately start doing bdsm scenes. I would have preferred some relationship development.
I did not like the heroine’s actions during the major-conflict-separation. She was stupid and careless and said things I would not have said. It did not please me as a storyline.
The narrator was Winslow Cummings. She made it worse. I did not like the whimpering, crying, weak voice she used for Paige when Paige was being dominated, saying yes sir, and counting the spankings. It came off too wimpy. I’d prefer a different submissive voice. I also did not like her voice for Carter. The narrator is a woman trying to sound like a man, but everything in his voice was low, quiet, and calm. It was missing a confident tone that I think a dom would have had.
3 stars. DOUBLE SHOT (#1)
This was a better story, but I did not care for the major conflict. It was contrived - like the author couldn’t think of anything better. The purpose of the story is sex. There is no bdsm. There are three sex scenes. One of them is very long with Sadie having sex with two men, including rear door activity. For some reason this scene wasn’t very exciting for me. She was directing the action telling the guys what to do. They would say “may I?” and she would say “yes you may.” It didn’t work well for me. I like it better when the emphasis is on guys “wanting” to do things to her.
The narrator in this story was Isabelle Gordon. She was good, although her voice for Josh was weird.
2 stars. PULLED LONG (#3)
This had some really hot sex scenes between two men. These were the best sex scenes in the three stories. They included toys, rear door activity, and public displays.
However, the plot was weak. Ian’s warped thinking caused contrived conflicts. Ian thinks he’s going to be hurt or rejected, so he repeatedly runs away without explaining. He thinks he’s at fault when he’s not. For example, his dad was driving, ran a red light, and had a car accident. Ian blames himself because his dad had the accident while he was angry at Ian. Ian’s mother died of cancer, but Ian feels responsible saying he should have cared for her more. One of Jeff’s clients fires Jeff. Ian feels it is Ian’s fault because he jinxes things for people near him. Those things do not make an interesting story.
The narrator Max Tatch was excellent.
Genres: erotic contemporary romance, menage, male-male.
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
I didn't realise this would be quite so hot - and I just don't know what qualifies for Erotica if this doesn't??
3 stories (2 sisters and 1 brother) all work near Mavericks Sex Club and their fantasies all include the person their hot for and the Club. Weak on the 'romance' side of the stories - they all seem to be just an excuse to include lots and lots of bdsm which gets boring if there's nothing else much with it.
Worth a credit? No, I'd rather have Lora Leigh's books any day.
I REALLY enjoyed this series!
I wasn't really thrilled with the idea of this book when I had read the reviews and read that the last story was man in love with a man story. I'm not into those types of stories, but I purchased it any way and I am so glad I did!
Let me say that even though the last story is man on man, it is more of a love story than anything else. Yes there is man on man sex, but it was the first one that I actually really listened to and was greatly glad that I did. While that type of thing still won't float my boat, this one was done in such a way as to be appealing even to the straight crowd!
I say give it a chance! There are three stories here, they are all connected to each other but will each stand alone. And if you don't find you like one, there are still two more excellent stories to listen to that are well worth it!
I love audio books that the characters come to life and have me feeling as if I was there too.
The sex scenes were hot! Learn some new tricks
All they were real
None all were great
Worth a credit
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
men are sooo sexy.
just a good listen if you like hot
Winslow seems to be a new reader, great job on men's voices. Gabra also does the best mans voice
Tell us about yourself!
I so recommed this book though, I would suggest that this is not for timid readers. This book is detailed and beyond steamy. The relationship between the men and the couples is very erotic.
The Dom/Sub story of Carter and Paige is my favorite...but the love scene between Sadie and Paul with Josh is most certainly a close second.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Buying this book was a long shot for me but i was happy i purchased. The first two stories were great but the 3rd story is a little to much man on man for me. Over all the book is Hot and Sexy and enjoyable. :)
I like sexy erotica with a good storyline. Fantasy or sci-fi or just something that captures my attention right away.
This was HOT! and it had a good storyline to it. I mean it wasn't an in-depth storyline but it wasn't all just about the sex. This was the first time I had listened to this author and I liked this book enough to look up her other books and bye one.
Wow, I've listened to many erotic novels by now but this one took my breath away. The sex scenes were fantastic. Do not listen while driving you will be totally distracted!
