Book Blurb

Adrian Hughes is a geek who sucks at social interaction because awkward is his middle name. Even though he’s gay, he’s the opposite of flamboyant (when they were handing out fabulous, he was hiding in another room). Even so, he’s always wanted a boyfriend—who doesn’t want to find love?—but so far, the closest he’s gotten to it is crushing on the hot older guy he only sees on the elevator. So what happens when he’s trapped inside it with Mr. Zillionaire Hottie during a heat wave brownout? He stutters like an idiot, because Mr. Greyson Lee is unexpectedly cool, calm, and collected … right up until he’s not.

When kissing leads to sex, Adrian can’t say no. But is it just a hookup? Or is it the start of something more?


Book Review

In the ‘Romance on the Go’ series things happen quickly with insta-lust the rule rather than the exception, and ‘The Elevator’ certainly fits the mold. Even though geeky software engineer Adrian has been lusting for Greyson, the hot, older man who works on the top floor of his office building for over a year, they have never shared more than a greeting in the elevator. Until, that is, one fateful Friday night when a power outage locks them in close proximity for a few hours and they share… well, let’s just say words are not all they exchange! They are so hot together that it’s a miracle the elevator cables don’t melt.

Adrian may be socially inept, but his one-on-one skills are impeccable. Except when the elevator starts moving again and Greyson is pulled away by his assistant waiting for him in the building’s lobby, Adrian has no idea what to do. Was the encounter just a hookup? Would he and Greyson have anything to say to each other if they went on a date? Does he dare find out? Lucky for me – and him – Greyson has a plan and I loved seeing how it plays out.

If you like your romances hot and heavy, if you enjoy a good May/December pairing between a geek and a zillionaire, and if you’re looking for a read that feels like reading an erotic modern-day fairy tale, then you will probably like this short story.
