To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
C'est une suite, quasi impossible à apprécier si on n'a pas lu les épisodes précédents. On a l'impression que c'est en fait un gros roman que l'auteur a découpé pour le vendre en plusieurs fois, mais du coup on perd beaucoup de la profondeur des personnages et des scènes car on a sans cesse l'impression qu'il manque quelque chose pour comprendre ce qui se passe. J'ai arrêté la lecture à la moitié.
Seeing as this was the third installment in the Long Shots series, I wanted to know what happened with Ian and "Blue Eyes". I have never read a m/m book before, but with the hints of what was to come in Ian's book throughout the first two in the series, I HAD to read it. I'm glad I did too. This was a really good book and the dynamic between the two men was awesome.
Ian is reluctant to get into a relationship because of his past mistakes and the scars that they have left behind, so instead he throws himself into work. One night, "Blue Eyes" returns to the shop and they hit it off again, but Ian is the reluctant one on pursuing the other man as he thinks "Blue Eyes" is straight and just wanting to experiment. Throughout the book Ian has his issues with past mistakes and misconceptions. Will "Blue Eyes" wait long enough for Ian to get his act together? Find out for yourself and read the last in the series, "Pulled Long".
The story was well written, loaded with emotion and the sexy bits were smokin' and also well written. But I have to admit I was torn about Ian. On the one hand, he was a very real character. Alpha heroes seem to be very popular, but I personally can't stand them. I'm more of a Beta girl, so I loved that Ian was soft all around. It made him very lovable, and I rooted for him from the first page. But he was very down on himself, and after a while, he got to be very whiny about it. To the point that while it made him very real, it also weakened his character. It was just too much for me.
All in all, worth the read, but not a keeper for me.
This was my first erotic romance, and it did not disappoint. While the sex scenes were ooh-la-la hot, Ian and Jeff shone through the pages and living, breathing characters. In fact, I love Ian so much, I hope d'Abo brings him back! Absolutely masterful writing.
