Calling the Shots by Christine d'Abo

Long Shots # 4
Calling the Shots is the fourth and final book in the Long Shots series which has centred on a BDSM club, Mavericks, and the coffee-shop over the road, Pulled Long. All the siblings that own the coffee shop have found their Kinkily Ever After and now it is the turn of club owner, Josh to find his lifetime ménage-a-trois.

Josh has been running the club with the help of his assistant Beth who we met back in book 2 when she was fired for being caught having sex on the table in the coffee shop with her now ex-boyfriend. Both of them have a twinkle in their eyes for sexy barman Oliver and all three of them have emotional traumas in their past and are reluctant to trust again.

I really enjoyed this watching Beth and Oliver discover their sexuality. Oliver has been married and it ended messily and he always thought he was heterosexual but his lust for Josh and Beth has awakened his bisexuality and his submissiveness. Beth, once she lets go and gets started, finds that she is a switch, enjoying both relinquishing and taking control. Josh, the most experienced of the trio, guides their sexual journeys mostly taking on the role of Top.

However unrealistic it seems, there’s something very special about this kind of relationship, something that is uniquely theirs that no one on the outside looking in could ever really begin to understand. It’s kind of like their very own secret club. Whenever I’m reading ménage scenes, I often wonder how hard it is for the writer to keep the continuity going – you’ve really got to keep in mind where every bit of every participant is at any given moment. Do they use posable dolls to keep it all straight in their head? I had a mental picture of Christine d’Abo sat at her computer with Barbie and a couple of Ken dolls trying to work it all out!

Anyway, it’s a very sexy story with plenty of sex, anal, m/m/f, m/f/m and some light BDSM themes and there’s a suspense plot thrown in too as someone has malicious intentions towards the club.
