Pulled Long by Christine d'Abo

Yes! Pulled Long is the third book in the Long Shots series, and the story I’ve been waiting for!!

Ian Long has kept his heart locked away after a series of events has him convinced that everyone he touches will get hurt. Like his sisters, he’s thrown himself into working at the family coffee house and bakery, not only to see it become successful, but because it helps him keep his mind off of “Blue Eyes,” the one man he’d finally started to think might be worth taking a chance on. But Ian’s bad luck still holds true and he finds out that Blue Eyes is going through a divorce – from his wife and Ian isn’t about make himself some straight guy’s rebound experiment. Months have gone by since Ian ran him off, but now he’s back and he’s not taking ‘no’ for an answer.

Okay, after reading the three books in this series I can now say, without hesitation, that Christine d'Abo is an author whose stories I'll be looking for. She knows how to take characters I've only just met and make them seem like people I've known forever. With her comfortable, easy to read writing style and storytelling, she manages to accomplish in a short story what many authors struggle with, even with double the page count. If this is what she can do with a novella, I can only imagine how phenomenal she'd be with a full length novel.

I am definitely looking forward to reading more by this author.

  1. Oooh hold on a minute! So Blue Eyes is divorcing his wife...has Blue Eyes ever been with another man?? Is this a "gay for you" story? Do I need to read the first two in this series? I don't think I've ever tried this author....

  2. LOL!!

    Well, you learn about him divorcing his wife in the second book, A Shot in the Dark. So I gave away no spoilers for this book, and really, I think that's all you need to know going in. I would say you don't 'have' to read book 1&2, but honestly, they're so short (and hot) that I wouldn't skip them. Do you really want to know if he's been with other men? Or if it's a GFY story?

  3. Noo..don't tell me. I'll go download first book. I'm all intrigued ;)

  4. I'm glad you're going to give these a try. They're short, but I love the siblings and they're definitely hot!

    I'm also glad you commented because I checked and discovered I hadn't posted my review for book 1, Double Shot. I took care of that! :)

    I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I have.
