Joe and Daphne go to I Heart That City every Thursday night to celebrate being together one more week. They almost lost their marriage and themselves to a former lover, who only wanted Daphne.
When Amos sees the happy couple, he knows he must capture them on film. Only he really wants to capture them for himself. Inviting them to let him take pictures only makes his longing more intense. And he's not the only one feeling the sexual spark. Joe and Daphne find themselves attracted to the man who seems to find both of them desirable.
One problem: they've taken a break from threesomes. When they decide to try and see where things go, passions explode with body shots on camera, and on Daphne and Joe with tequila. But Daphne's past has her in its sights and it could ruin everything.

5 Hearts! "Ms. Armstrong has outdone herself by creating a sensually scorching and moving story of jealousy, humor, love, and devotion between a couple finding their way back to each other and a man who craves nothing more than to share his life with the man and woman that arouses his wants, desires and ultimately his love for them. This story is a powerful read with its gripping emotions, passions, a large dose of drama, and a whole lot of sexual tensions and kinks to have the reader hot and bothered. The characters are well developed, emotionally flawed, and haunted by past events to the point the reader knows and understands each character fully."
—Shannon, The Romance Studio
4 Stars! "Body Shots is a very sensual, erotic romance that made my mouth water. Daphne and Joe are a fun couple, always ready to try new things. Amos is a little different, and he uses his camera as a shield to protect himself from heartbreak. I enjoyed all three characters a great deal. There are a few secondary characters to keep this story moving, but they managed to stay secondary throughout. The sexual scenes are very sensual, and the visual descriptions are perfect for building the mood. Some readers may be offended by the M/M scenes but they are a huge part of the storyline and offer great insight into the characters. Overall, this was a very good story, with tons of sensual sexual encounters."
—Stefani Clayton, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
4 Stars! "Mechele Armstrong is a truly brilliant author. Her story is beautiful and the characters engaging. This is a four star novel that will leave the readers happy and ready for more. Body Shots is the perfect story any time you want an adrenaline rush mixed in with the steamy heat of romance. I can not wait to read whatever Ms. Armstrong is offering next."

And she realized what she didn't hear.
No more clicks.
She wasn't even sure when she'd stopped hearing them, but except for heavy breathing and the pulse pounding in her ears, the room was silent.
Amos had stopped taking pictures.
She didn't open her eyes to look at him, though she desperately wanted to, but continued to kiss Joe. Finally, when the clicks didn't resume, she couldn't help herself and broke off the kiss and turned to look.
Amos had lowered the camera in one hand. Was looking at them with an unreadable expression. His breath sighed from his lungs with effort.
Joe kissed her again to get her attention back to him. His warm lips sought inroads into hers. There was a jubilance in his kiss. From the fact they'd won.
Amos's shaky voice came low. "Hold on, guys. Stop. I have to get batteries. I'll be right back." And he took off for another room beyond this one at a gait that was almost a gallop. He almost hit the door but it opened for him and he sped through. "Don't move."
Joe shifted back on his elbows to look at her. He'd obeyed Amos and stopped kissing her. Didn't move from her. Instead, he created a slow, steady circular grinding of his hips against her.
"Think his batteries are really dead?" She plowed herself against him, trying to get in as close to him as she could get.
He chuckled. Brushed a soft kiss on her nose. Didn't answer the question. "Did you get what you wanted? You made him stop taking pictures."
She hesitated. "You did know my intention." She shouldn't be this nervous. Only she couldn't help her feelings. Last time they'd played, there'd been a horrible cost. She didn't want to go through that again.
"You're not that hard to figure out." He shifted his weight to ease from her a little. She wanted to pull him back down fully on top of her.
She lowered her legs from him to accommodate his new position. "I thought I was a woman of mystery. Intrigue."
Joe leaned down to kiss her again. "Not to me."
She never knew if she liked that Joe knew her that well or she didn't. But he always had seemed to anticipate her. Not even Gary had gotten to know her as well or as quickly as Joe, though he'd tried to become "her Joe." There was no one else for her but the original, though. She curled up her lip into a pout. "I had no idea I was predictable."
He laughed. The reverberations shook his chest and smooshed him against her. "I wouldn't call you that. Ever."
"I don't think he had low batteries."
"I don't think he did either." He moved his weight to the other side. "Wonder if he's jerking off?"
She tapped on his back with a gasp. "Joe!" Giggles broke free from her. She'd not be able to look Amos in the eye now. She'd be wondering if he had been jerking off while he'd been in the back.
Joe's eyes twinkled at her as he winked. "It's what I'd do. Especially if you'd been looking all sexy like you have been all afternoon. And making out" -- his face sobered -- "with someone else."
Hell and beans. The reminders came up at the most unexpected times. This one caught them both off guard and changed the mood.
Before she had a chance to answer, Amos charged back in the room. "Sorry about that. I'm all ready to go now."
Daphne broke out in a full laugh. "Are you now?"
