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 and Caden get stuck in an elevator and as they spend hours in a dark small room, they have nothing else to do than to talk to one another. Makenna and Caden are so different from the outside, but in the darkness they get to know each other on another level, which leads to a instant attraction.
It was a short novella, but the story was well developed and didn’t feel that there’s something missing. It was a hot and fun read!
