Review: Calling the Shots by Christine d’Abo


Calling The Shots (Long Shots #4)

He’s had a wild ride, and now sex club owner Josh Scott is looking for a change of scene. But first, he’s determined to bring two friends together, and he’s willing to be a third wheel to move things along…

Beth Norris is eager to be set up with hot bartender Oliver Stephenson, but she’s equally attracted to matchmaker Josh. Soon she’s fantasizing about both men at once—and about being the one to call the shots in the encounter…

Ready to move on with his life post-divorce, Oliver is conflicted by the realization that he’s attracted to women and men. Or more specifically, to Beth and Josh. He tries to keep his distance, but it’s not long before the chemistry between the trio combusts in a night of mind-blowing sex.

In the light of day, it’s clear something deeper than desire is growing between Josh, Beth and Oliver. But though Josh has helped others find love in unconventional relationships, is he willing to take a chance on one himself?Photobucket

We first met Josh on Double Shot and discovered a bit more about him during the series while all the other couples visited Mavericks, his club for erotica and BDSM members. I loved him with Sadie and Paul and it was clear that he needed more than just one partner to be happy, but at the same time we can see it’s tormenting him what people could say about this strange arrangement.
So he suffered for awhile and it took a lot of convincing from Beth and Oliver to actually make things happen. I can totally understand because he was worried about who work would be after everyone noticed he’s two employs were very happy on his bed.
There’s was also a little bit of suspense while Josh investigate who broke into the club and sprayed the walls with nasty words. So upon all this he was dealing with his feelings and trying to understand how things could work on the future.
I loved Josh, but I think he was too hung up on what people would think, while he was so sure about his partners and decided to worry ahead off time, didn’t actually match him.
