Calling The Shots (Long Shots #4) by Christine d'Abo

Josh is the owner of Mavericks, a sex club where folks can get their kink on safely.  We met him in the three previous Long Shots books and he has ever been a friend to all but you just know there has to be more to him.  This is the book where we find out why this terrific guy isn’t hooked up with anybody.  In Double Shot Josh helps his best friend Paul get together with Sadie, In A Shot In The Dark Mavericks plays host in getting Paige and Carter together and again in getting Jeff and Ian together in Pulled Long.  In Calling The Shots Josh is feeling antsy.  It’s time for a change.  Paul is content with Sadie and running Mavericks isn’t the challenge it used to be so he is thinking of opening a new club elsewhere.  Beth, his assistant manager can take over running Mavericks especially if the hunky new bartender Oliver helps.  Now all he has to do is play cupid once again to get them together.  Beth is recovering from a bad romance and lusts after both her boss and Oliver but a workplace romance got her fired from Long Shots no way is she going to jeopardize this job.  Oliver is getting over a bad marriage and has trust issues.  He is also confused by his growing attraction for both Beth and Josh.  Can these three get over their past issues and find happiness together?

I like pretty much everyone else who has read the Long Shots series looked forward to seeing Josh get his HEA.  I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and turns this book took.  Josh was much deeper than the smiling cupid he appeared to be in the other books.
