Holy hell… I LOVE THIS BOOK! I felt the need to get that out-of-the-way right in the beginning.


This book is a short 232-page read but OMG is it filled with all kinds of sexy…


Makenna James, accountant, is having a downright horrible day…and things are about to get even worse.

Caden Grayson is completely terrified of dark and confined spaces.

Makenna, getting ready to leave her office for the day, makes her way to the elevator. She is extremely distracted and stumbles into the elevator. She catches a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on the hand of the man who catches her…

 Caden and Makenna are forced to fight the fear of being in the dark confined space. They must talk to one another in order to stay calm because neither one of them knows how long they will be in this elevator.


So what happens when you’re stuck in the dark and only have your instincts to go on? What happens when you take physical attraction out of the equation? Caden and Makenna end up finding out more than just what they have in common. They find a passion, they find each others hearts…in darkness.


This book was fantastic!  I loved every single second of it!

The fact that Makenna was forced to think about what it means to be attracted to someone was brilliant. I have often found myself attracted to certain people in terms of personality, but yet the physical attraction just wasnt there.

That’s why this story is so fantastic. Laura Kaye takes that part out of the mix.

Luckily for Makenna, Caden is plenty sexy. Tattoos and piercing…



Some of my favorites from the book:

“Tell me, Red, you gotta say it out loud. I can’t see your face or your eyes, and I don’t want to make any mistakes here.”


“He crowded right up into her space, pressed his body against hers—trapping her against the glass of the door behind her, plunged his hands into her hair until he was cupping the nape of her neck, and devoured her lips with his.” 


I highly recommend this short but sweet, sexy yet sensual, all-around good time novella to my ladies that are fans of romance.

5 out of 5 stars, as if you had to ask!

      • MichelleW (MsRomanticReads) says:

        That book popped my Laura Kaye cherry, and I haven’t regretted it 🙂 Now you will have to read all of her books.

      • Nikki B says:

        LMFAO! Yes, mine too!!! I cannot wait to read more… I love me some Laura Kaye now!

      • MichelleW (MsRomanticReads) says:

        Thank you for the follow! I’m definitely following you back because I have a feeling I’ll always be entertained by your reviews. I can’t wait to see the gifs accompanying a negative review, lol.

      • Nikki B says:

        Anytime! I love my fellow romance/erotica readers! If you want to see a bad review, check out my review of Honor Student…. womp womp!

      • MichelleW (MsRomanticReads) says:

        OMG! That is hysterical! First Dr Who, then the Beast, Glee. As for some of the hangups, could the author be from Europe, for example? I think colleges do things differently overseas.

      • Nikki B says:

        Yeah, I am a pop culture fiend so my GIF’s are all across the board lol

        I’m not sure what the hangups were about. I was very disappointed though because the premise of the book really had me hooked. I am going to give another one of her books a shot though, just for comparison.

      • MichelleW (MsRomanticReads) says:

        You’re nicer than me, lol.

  2. Nikki B says:

    haha, only sometimes 😉

  3. Esther says:
