    Let me just start by saying wow, what a fun sexy series that I stumbled onto!! I read the first book in this series, not knowing that there were going to be 3, just because it looked like something I would enjoy, boy was I right!! A Shot in the Dark is Paige's story. Paige is the oldest of the 3 siblings who came together to open Pulled Long, a fun coffee shop/bakery. In the first book, Sadie's book, we are introduced to Paige and know that she has had some trauma in her past that has caused her [...]

    3.5 starsFirst half was great, but other half confused me for a second. Whole thing with her ex wasn't quite believable.

    A Shot in the Dark is the second installment of the Long Shots series and in this story, the focus is on Paige Long, the oldest of the Long siblings. For years she's buried herself in her work in order to avoid another relationship catastrophe like the one that nearly killed her. She knows her nature, and what her sexual needs are, but doesn't want to have to sit down and explain it all to the next man she might decide to date.Enter Carter, a local firefighter whose every move screams "Dom." He' [...]

    I love this series :) This is book 2 of the Long Shot series - In the first book, Double Shot, we had Sadie and Paul and a little peice of Josh :)in this book we have Sadie's oldest sister Paige - The series is about the 3 siblings who own a small coffee shop, and have put way too many hours in trying for a successful business. Sadie ran off with Paul, but still helps out with the baking - and Ian (their brother) is still in charge of everything else. Paige helps Ian with pretty much everything, [...]

    A fireman who's also a Dom. Fire! Fire! Fire! Carter is a Dom who can generate heat and passion in the control freak Paige. Paige is the oldest in the Long siblings and this is her story. I really enjoyed this story because I can totally empathize with her. As the oldest child in my family of three, I feel the same responsibilities she feels. Her need of BDSM is so well expressed in this story. I feel the same. Fortunately, this is where we our similarities end.Paige unfortunately was damaged by [...]

    4 Happy sexy stars!A Hot Dom fire fighter who's over six feet tall, drop dead gorgeous, wears leather pants on his off time and possesses a wicked imagination in the bedroom! I. AM. IN. LOVE! Hot damn Carter is a very very fine man. I really like this one, the second in this series. At first the prickly Paige comes across as a bit of a cow. But then we soon learn how frustrated and suppressed she has been for the last 3 years. How can I blame her for her snappy disposition, I can't. I actually l [...]

    Really like this novella and series so farI just wanted more, this was way to short!(view spoiler)[ There was a scene in the book that involves cooking oil,a small drinking glass,a barbecue lighter, some condoms, and a bag of frozen PEAS!!! Thats right its not a typoI said PEAS!!! Take a moment and visualize those items all used together! If you get it then your probably smiling right now thinking that's HOT! (hide spoiler)] On to book 3 :)

    Really enjoyed this one! I thought the BDSM aspects were done really well, the romance and relationship was great, and the smexy times was totally hot. VERY good but short novella! Will be looking for more books by this author.Review originally posted here: thebookpushers/2011/11/03/Publisher: Carina PressPublish Date: November 7thHow I got this book: NetGalleyThis was my first Christine d’Abo book, and will NOT be my last.

    This review was originally posted on Delighted ReaderA Shot in the Dark is the second book in a trilogy about the Long siblings. Paige Long owns a coffee shop along with her sister Sadie and brother Ian. Three years ago she had a very hard breakup with someone who thought beating her was what BDSM was all about. It took a particular beating for her to realize this wasn't what it was all about. Leaving him and the lifestyle behind, she has put all of her energy into starting the coffee shop and h [...]

    Rating: C Heat: SizzlingWarning:This story has elements of BDSM and D/s with moments of light bondage and… object play? Review: Dearest Paige is the eldest Long sibling and, as such, is a mother hen to her sister and brother—constantly worrying and meddling in their lives. She’s an independent, take-charge kind of gal. All business. And also totally unsatisfied. Because even though she is demanding in her professional life, she wants nothing more than to surrender in her personal one. Unf [...]

    Let me start by saying that I can't wait to get my hands on the third book in this fun and sexy series. A Shot in the Dark is the second book about the Long siblings, focusing on Paige, the oldest. Paige is three years out of an abusive relationship that made her question her every thought and desire. Her dominating, abusive ex-boyfriend took advantage of Paige and caused her to shut down her emotional and sexual desires and build a wall to block others out.But then Paige meets Carter who wants [...]

    You know a short story is good when you wish it would be a full length book and that is my feelings for this one. First off we have the coffee shop location with the 3 siblings, which I love, and then so far each book is so different as to what sub-genre it tackles. It is almost like getting a variety pack of cookies.I found this book to be oddly sweet. Paige is wound up tighter than a drum and needs a way to deal with things, her preference is BDSM and pain. However after a really bad experienc [...]

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My reviews don’t contain spoilers.The set up for this book from the summary is Carter is one of the hottest men ever to walk into Paige Long's coffee shop. The attraction is mutual, and when Carter reveals himself to be a Dom, the submissive in Paige is aroused.As a follow up to Double Shot, this book held its own. I really like this one. Even though this book is a novella, it took it’s time with the romance and I real [...]

He comes back the next morning and tries again to get to know her. Paige is helpless to deter Carter when she sees him in a firefighter uniform making more fantasies for her. Carter man [...]

    I'm glad d'Abo writes full-length novels now, as these short tastes feel like they could be so much more. The heroine's kink is not my kink and the crazy/abusive ex boyfriend trope is not my thing but I finished in one sitting anyway. I like how the Blue Eyes storyline was carried through books one and two and I can't wait to see their HEA!

    A Shot in the Dark #2 by Christine D’Abo* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*Paige is a submissive that likes a little pain but her ex-boyfriend took it to extremes, scarring her from future play. It’s been three years since she walked away from Rick and that lifestyle, now she is suffering because she hasn’t been taking care of her needs. She doesn’t realize how much she misses that lifestyle until Carter walks into their coffee shop and offer [...]

In Double Shot, the first book in the series, Sadie got her happily ever after. A Shot In The Dark tells the story of Paige, the oldest Long sibling.Paige has had a tough life and has put all of her energy into her work instead of trying to find someone to spend her time with. She left a life behind that she's tried to forget for [...]

    When I started this, I had no idea that it was the second in a series by the same author so I was not familiar with the characters or the back stories. That did not seem to matter as I was able to jump right into the story of the two main characters (Paige and Carter) and even became eager to read the next in the series about Paige's brother, Ian (something I will do as soon as I complete this review). Paige and her siblings co-own a popular coffee shop that is down the road from a popular BDSM [...]

    Mmm… coffee and a hot fireman… who could ask for more? Oh yeah… and I should also mention the steamy bdsm scenes. This just couldn’t get any better except it did. The plot in A Shot in the Dark, the second book in D’Abo’s Long Shots series, is inspired enough to give the book substance. Paige, the eldest Long sibling, has buried herself in her work ever since her previous Dom became abusive. Set up as strong yet vulnerable, Paige is an amazingly well-developed character for such a sh [...]

    My Review:This is book #2 in the Long Shot series, about three siblings running a coffee shop. Book #1 was Double Shot and you can see my review of that book, HEREhint, it was rated an A. This book is about Paige, the oldest of the three.Hmm, this is a tough book for me to rate. While I enjoyed the book, the BDSM element was a little more hard-core than I am used tot necessarily in the way that you would think with a BDSM novel. It wasn't too rough or anything like that, but the sub's needs for [...]

    The book start hot with Paige discovering two employes having sex on kitchen of the coffee shop, but that was somewhat good since she had to be barista that night after firing the couple and had her first encounter with Carter. But she thinks nothing about him, and cut his lame attempts off flirting right at start. When Carter comes back the next day and Paige discover he's a firefighter, her mind can't stop the fantasies from poping up. Carter is a Dom and likes to visit Mavericks with his frie [...]
