Carrie Trent has just become the photographer for a gay porn film company where committed couple Cal and Scotty are the stars -- the stars of the company and of every fantasy Carrie has. And now she has to be on-set to photograph them while they have sex in a multitude of different moods and positions.
It’s driving her absolutely insane. She loves them, she really does, but her heart just can’t take being on the outside looking in. Carrie can’t quit, though, because the loan shark she thought was an old family friend wants his money right damn now and she just doesn’t have it.
Now her beautiful, sexy men are making her wonder if they’re really gay or maybe a little bit, just-for-her bi, and her financial troubles are pushing her down a really dangerous road. She's not good at asking for help, but she's not going to get out of her money mess on her own.
Good gravy this is one hot book. Imagine the two hottest guys on the planet getting together. Touching, licking, and pleasuring. Now add a girl. Sound exciting? In Missy Welsh’s book, Take the Shot, it sure is.
I’ll be the first to admit, I like a little domination in my books. When it’s not at all how I expected, now that’s explosive. Ms. Welsh’s writing style kept me right in my seat until the last page, and yeah, I’m still thinking about the characters. I felt like I was right there with them, going through the story and experiencing the burgeoning desires. There were times I giggled and times I wanted to smack a character upside the head. But in all honesty, my feeling emotionally involved in the story is a mark of a great tale.
Scotty and Cal are fantastic. Opposites, but I could totally picture them together. The details in their scenes made the shots literally pop from the page. I liked their personalities and how they gelled together. I did like Carrie, but there were times she frustrated me. Her motivations for being on set with Cal and Scotty made perfect sense, but I still wanted to ask her why she acted on certain impulses and not others. Still, the triple threat was great to read about because it worked so well.
If you want a story that’s got a little bit of everything, heat, heart, and action, then you need to read Take the Shot. It’s a spicy little gem you won’t want to miss.
