Rating: You Need to Read
Makenna James thinks her day can’t get any worse, until she finds herself stuck in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call and juggling too much stuff, the pin-striped accountant caught only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights went out.
Caden Grayson is amused when a redhead literally falls at his feet. His amusement turns to panic when the power fails. Despite his piercings, tats, and vicious scar, he’s terrified of the dark and confined spaces. Now, he’s trapped in his own worst nightmare.
To fight fear, they must both reach out and open up. With no preconceived notions based on looks to hold them back, they discover just how much they have in common. In the warming darkness, attraction grows and sparks fly, but will they feel the same when the lights come back on?
Makenna James was busy celebrating Murphy’s Law when Murphy out did himself and caused the elevator she was in to breakdown. Not only was her day wrecked, but she was on the verge of a hysterical breakdown in front of a pierced and tattooed stranger in a pitch black sweatbox. Caden Grayson was terrified of dark enclosed spaces due to trauma suffered in a childhood car accident that resulted in the death of his mother and younger brother. To look at Caden, no one would believe this tough looking behemoth would be afraid of anything. The only thing keeping him sane is the hysterical redhead in the corner of the elevator. Things are not looking good.
I absolutely adored this sweet little parable about not judging books by their cover. It is indeed a message that bears repeating, and Laura Kaye has found an utterly charming way to tell it. In complete darkness, Caden and Makenna are stripped down to the bare essence of what makes them human, and without the visual trappings to hinder them, they discover a commonality that brings them together on the most basic of levels. It is only after they are rescued that visual cues are misinterpreted and problems arise. If only everyone took this theme to heart.
The heat in the broken elevator did nothing to quell the ardor that these to were generating. It was a passion of the soul and not of the eyes. It was the perfect short read and I highly recommend this enjoyable tale.
