Ian Long owns a coffee shop with his two sisters. Jeff Carson is a straight guy that’s getting a divorce and has a crush on Ian. Christine has given her reader’s another interesting read.
Right in the first chapter, Ian goes for it. You have to cheer Ian on – he really deserves some happiness. Jeff is very blunt about what he’s looking for from Ian. Ian got burned once so now he has self-esteem issues. On their first date, they go to Maverick’s (a sex club for adults).
Christine has them doing “truth or dare” on their first date in one of the rooms at Maverick’s. It was a very interesting scene. What a way to get to know each other. Her sex scenes never disappoint her readers – can we say hot!
I love how Christine doesn’t make relationships easy for her characters – just like in real life. Nothing is straightforward between Jeff and Ian. And of course one of them has an ex. Jeff has the type of personality where he expects answers – he’s exactly what Ian needs. Christine shows the reader that everyone can feel vulnerable but that most families are there no matter what. At the very end, she gives the reader a chuckle.
You will be glad that you have read this series. You don’t have to read any of the books, in this series, in order but at some point you have to read each one. You won’t regret reading the works of Christine d’Abo. You’re also one step closer to reading Josh’s story.
I give “Pulled Long” 4 1/2 stars.
