She's good at sorting out professional messes...
Accountant Zip Collins spends so much time on spreadsheets that's she's forgotten what it's like to be between the sheets. During her weekly cocktail hour with the girls, they consult a Magic Eight Ball about her crush on bartender Tony. When the toy advises her to go for it, Zip dares to color outside the lines and go after the man who heats her dreams...
He's in the middle of a personal trial...
Tony Giordano enjoys Friday nights above all others, because it's the one night a week he's sure to see the sexy accountant and her friends. Having long since resigned Zip to the look, but don't touch category, he's blown away by her invitation. Tony's always been a planner but with his custody battle looming, he's not prepared for the effect she has on him...
One night leaves them both shaken...
What began as a whimsical dare quickly turns passionate, but is an unquenchable desire-and a Magic Eight Ball's advice-enough for these two planners to risk happily ever after on?

    Shaken by Heather Long is just another example of how versatile this author is. This short story packs a lot of umph, with well developed characters and enough steam to warm you up on a cold winter's night. Highly recommended read.

    ***Received from Fated Desires Publishing for an honest review***
    (This is a short story/novella. This review is not based on story length but story content as length has very little to do with how much I enjoy a book.)

    There's a lot of oomph packed into this novella. Tony and Zip aren't shallow characters indulging in an attraction that's been simmering for a while. They're realistic and believable, from their individual histories to occupations, to their current situations and emotions.

    And what I loved the most was Zip's friends' support throughout the entire story. The Martini Sisterhood isn't just the name of the series; it's a nod and a raised glass to the power of true friendship.

    Fun and HOT HOT HOT!!! what I loved about this the most was there was no one trying to tear them apart (not really) and neither of them had huge amounts of insecurity that they had to express over and over again. It was upbeat and sexy!!

    Ms. Long pens a sexy, steamy and enjoyable novella with Shaken.

    Ms. Long pens a sexy, steamy and enjoyable novella with Shaken. I really enjoyed Zip and Tony. They’re full of life and even though they are even fans of different baseball teams, they somehow come together and make it work. 




    This is a fast paced story, Zip and Tony have been eyeing each other and dancing around each other for a year until with the help Zip’s friends and a Magic8 Ball, Zip finally acts on her attraction. Tony is definitely willing and able to meet Zip full force with his own attraction. 




    Full of heat, and loveable characters it’s a great start to a new series, and I look forward to the rest of the ‘sisters’ downfalls when they get their own turn at love.

    Good Book! Shaken (The Martini Sisterhood #1) by Heather Long,

    Good Book!

    Shaken (The Martini Sisterhood #1) by Heather Long, is a steamy novella set in New York City. It is about five best friends that know each other inside and out. Every Friday night they meet after work at Coveted, one of hippest bars in Midtown Manhattan to enjoy great service, cocktails, and good conversation. This book focuses on accountant Zip Collins and the bartender at Coveted, Tony Giordano.

    Zip and Tony have been attracted to each other for about a year, but were unable to do anything about it until recently. When Zip gets a little tipsy, she asks Tony out and he readily accepts. Within a two week period, their lives are completely transformed and their future is bright.

    This is a fast-paced read with lots of scorching heat. The characters are fun, likeable and well-defined. I am looking forward to reading more from author Heather Long, and can't wait for book two in this series to be released.

    ARC received from publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    A sweet and sexy read from one of my favorite authors.  Zip is about as buttoned down as you can get but a girl can dream yes?  Tony is the sexy bartender with the dreamy eyes but he is so much more than that.  They have been making eyes at each other for over a year but it takes a couple of Martinis and a magic 8 ball and the good natured egging on from the girls to get Zip to ask Tony out.  Is this the beginning of a wonderful new relationship? Without a doubt.
