I know not everyone is so fortunate to have a job that they are passionate about. I also have a day job and while I enjoy it, the day to day is not something that gets my heart pounding with excitement. :)
Have you ever met someone who talks to you about what they do and you get sooooo pumped up just listening to them you're ready to go back to school and switch careers? Something like this guy:
I was a teacher before I did a little shuffle step into another career, but this guy makes me want to go back. :)
I love writing about characters who are passionate about what they do. The Longs in my Long Shots series love their business. The put everything they have into the store and it becomes an extension of who they are.
What about you? Have you ever been so passionate about something that you want to scream it from the roof tops?

Pulled Long - Long Shots book 3 from Carina Press
For months, coffee shop owner Ian Long has fantasized about a customer he knows only as “Blue Eyes.” Until he learns Blue Eyes is in the midst of a divorce—the last thing Ian wants is to be the rebound experiment of a straight guy. Giving in to lust, he invites the man into the café after hours and they indulge in a little exhibitionist play, but Ian is unwilling to get involved.
But when he’s forced to see Jeff again to return his briefcase, Ian finally agrees to go out on a date. Dinner quickly becomes an erotic encounter in a special room at the sex club Mavericks, and Ian realizes Jeff satisfies desires he didn’t even know he had. The more he gets to know Jeff as a person, the harder it is to resist falling for him.
Jeff makes it clear he’s interested in more than just sex. He wants to go public with their relationship in more ways than one. But can Ian open his heart, when he fears it will be broken?
