Pulled Long (Long Shots 3) by Christine d'Abo

For months, coffee shop owner Ian Long has fantasized about a customer he knows only as “Blue Eyes.” Until he learns Blue Eyes is in the midst of a divorce—the last thing Ian wants is to be the rebound experiment of a straight guy. Giving in to lust, he invites the man into the café after hours and they indulge in a little exhibitionist play, but Ian is unwilling to get involved.

When he’s forced to see Jeff again to return his briefcase, Ian finally agrees to go out on a date. Dinner quickly becomes an erotic encounter in a special room at the sex club Mavericks, and Ian realizes Jeff satisfies desires he didn’t know he had. The more he gets to know Jeff as a person, the harder it is to resist falling for him.

Jeff makes it clear he’s interested in more than just sex. He wants to go public with their relationship in more ways than one. But can Ian open his heart, when he fears it will be broken?

Reviewer: Fashionta
This book is the end of the suspense that has been building throughout the series, where we feel the flirtation between Ian and “blue eyes” that kept us wondering what will happen with these two.

In this book, we understand more about Ian, and how his past experiences affect his views on the future. Ian suffered the loss of his father’s love for being gay and believes he is the reason his father is sick now, also his bad experience with an ex left him with no self confidence and his misconception that bad things happen to the people he cares about. He tries to push Jeff away but as they say, love conquers all.

The characters were so realistic that you can’t help but feel Ian’s pain, laugh with their Truth and Dare game, feel anger towards the homophobic Anderson, and relate to the love between brother and sisters. The sex was hot and the end amazing. I LOVE this book and look forward to seeing what Christine D’Abo will come up with next!

I give this book 4 stars.
