Review: DOUBLE SHOT by Christine d’Abo

129042329From NetGalley:

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. While catering an event at the club is not quite the proposition she was hoping for, her business could use the boost. And she can’t resist the chance to work closely with Paul in such a sexually charged atmosphere. Enter the club’s hot owner, Josh, and suddenly Sadie’s fantasizing about being part of a threesome.

Paul has always wanted Sadie, but never thought she’d see him as anything more than a friend. On the night of the party, he and Josh tempt Sadie to reveal her deepest desire-a desire both men are eager to help fulfill.

Giving in to her sensual side, Sadie enjoys a night of mind-blowing sex. But in the light of day, will she lose Paul as a friend, or gain him as a lover?

Book 1 of the Long Shots series.

29,000 words

I have a mixed opinion about this novella.I loved the writing. DOUBLE SHOT is erotic and sensual. The author does a very good job of making the sex between Paul, Sadie, and Josh sensual instead of skanky. On the other hand, the story was lacking an emotional depth that I find necessary to enjoy erotic romance. We are told that Paul and Sadie are best friends, but there isn’t anything in the story that really backs that up. I didn’t feel the connection between the characters. I think this might be because of the length. There isn’t much time in 29k to develop depth to the characters. I will read the next book in the series because I liked the author’s voice. I’m just hoping that there is a little more emotion in the next book.

the book girl gives DOUBLE SHOT a 3/5

  1. Hmmmm….novellas can be really tricky and I’m often disappointed because of lack of development in some way, e.g. character, relationship, etc. or a hurried resolution. I think I’ll skip this one.
