Tattoo. Piercing. Buzz cut. He must look rough on the outside. But he was a big, sweet, considerate, sometimes vulnerable softy on the inside. And she wanted to get to know both sides a lot better.

Two strangers...

When accountant Makenna James finds herself stranded in a pitch-black elevator, she can't help but wonder about the stranger stuck with her. All she noticed about him before the lights went out was a dragon tattoo; all she knows now is his sexy, gruff voice in the darkness.

Four hours...

Caden Grayson is inked, pierced, scarred on the inside and out—and terrified of the dark for reasons he'd rather not remember. Trapped in his worst nightmare, only the sweet voice of the red-headed beauty distracts him from his fear. And, oh, man, as the hours pass and the darkness heats up, that's nothing compared to her touch.

One pitch-black elevator...

He's all rough edges and she's pin-striped skirts, but in the darkness they open up and reach out without any preconceptions to hold them back. But as attraction grows and sparks fly, will they feel the same when the lights come back on?

3.5 stars

Can you imagine being stuck in the dark, in an elevator, with a complete stranger? What if they're not a good person? What if they stink? Makenna and Caden were fortunate to be stuck with one other. They learned about each other with no preconceptions. No distractions. No worrying if the other person was attractive or if they found you attractive. No wondering if they said too much. They grew close, closer than most people, in the span of hours. Makenna knew more about Caden than she knew about most people in her life. Caden grew attached to Makenna in a way he couldn't be to anyone else.

Caden couldn't remember the last time he'd had such an easy conversation or the last time he'd laughed or even smiled so much.

I really enjoyed this story. I liked it so much, from beginning to end, that I don't even feel it necessary to read the next book in this duet. I probably will because it will give me more of these characters and the future that they have together, but I don't need to. This author captured such a unique experience in a wonderfully sweet way. I couldn't help but be captivated by this story.
