{NA Novella Review} Elevator Heat by B.D. Rowe

{NA Novella Review} Elevator Heat by B.D. Rowe

Twenty-year-old Maddie has had a crush on Colin, her studly internship supervisor, for three long months. She struggles focusing on her work, and always finds herself gazing at his wavy brown hair, his chiseled cheekbones, his kissable lips. Little does she know, however, that he has feelings for her, too.

The problem is no matter how much time they spend together in the office, neither one can ever make the first move.

That is, until they both step into the old, rickety elevator late one Friday night.

And things start to get a little steamy...

{Rating} 3/5 - I liked it!

"The girl had no idea that in less than three minutes all her dreams would come true." (page 1, line 1)
They've been pining for each other for months. There are lots of covert glances and unspoken fantasies but their interactions are limited to business. But then, one night they get in the elevator ... and can't get out.

The characters are interesting but I would have appreciated a bit more character development.  Colin is a good guy, especially in the elevator, trying to be calm and strong for Maddie who is freaking out. Though he cares very much for Maddie Colin has suffered a terrible loss and is afraid to move on, afraid to make a move.

It was a very fast read and I loved the ending!

  1. It sounds like character development may have been helped out by a longer story. That is one of the downfalls of novellas. Although there are certainly well written novellas out there. Sounds like a nice story though.
