Double Shot by Christine D'Abo

This is book 1 of Christine's "Long Shot Series".
Main characters:  Sadie Long owns a coffee shop and she lusts over Paul Williams.  Paul, who happens to be a good friend of Sadie's, works at a sex club called Mavericks.  Josh Scott is Paul's boss.
As Christine's story opens, we see that Sadie is a shy young woman.  She goes into Mavericks looking for Paul but ends up having an interesting fantasy.  You can also tell that Sadie has the hots for Paul.  Paul wants to offer Sadie a catering job.  This is also when Sadie first meets Josh.
I loved the interaction between Sadie and her brother Ian.  I can just picture how Ian is reacting to Sadie's artistic talent.  I love how Christine also makes reference to one of my favorite cooking shows.  It helps to give her story more reality (something the reader can relate to).  She also does a great job of showing the heat building between Sadie and Paul.
The night of the catering event, Paul finally lets Sadie know some of the fantasies he's been having about her.  Christine also gives us a hint of what Sadie wants.  Christine also does a great job of teasing the reader by not having the sex so "in your face".  We get to use our imaginations this way.
The story is subtle and sexy at the same time.  Plus, it's nice to see a young woman character still have a shy side and a business woman at the same time.  The sex scenes flow very well through the story.  You don't feel that Christine decided this was where I needed to add some sex in.  You can feel how all the characters connect together.  And, how bad can it be being "serviced" by two hot men (every woman's fantasy).
If you have a significant other, this book will help put some spice in your love life.  It may also be a book that you would like to read over and over.  This book is h-o-t.  You will need to keep a fan handy.  This is also a short story so if you don't have a lot of time to read and want your "love" fix, this would be a perfect book for you.
I definitely cannot wait for book 2 to come out.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars.
