“I love...that elevator,” she said. With a sleepy smile and a full heart, he turned his head and kissed into her soft hair. “Aw, Red. I love that elevator, too.”
Ohmygod ohmygod OHMYGOD!!! Is it me or is this book freaking AWESOME.
I’m madly, unconditionally, irrevocably in love with this book. I don..I don’t know where to start I feel so overwhelmed right now *breathe dammit*
OK....Apart from being HOT (most of the time) and SMUTTY the story is perfect definition of “Hearts in darkness”. Two strangers trapped in pitch dark elevator for hours, they strike a conversation just to kill time but in their case what started with casual twenty questions then comforting later ending up connecting emotionally. Without putting any efforts they develop trust, in no time they have this undeniable mutual attraction!
Sometimes your heart sees what your eyes overlook. They just needed their touch their voice their words to trust to feel safe and to fall for each other without worrying how other person looks like! And that’s LOVE for me.
“I've never...you're just...” He heaved a sigh. “Aw, hell. I like you, Red. I want to be with you. I want you to argue with me some more. I want to lie in your arms again. I want to touch you. I...I just...”
Anymore I will always have a smile on my face whenever I’m in the elevator. :)
