About The Book: Friends, strangers, high risk situations bring couples together for highly charged sexual encounters in elevators. Enjoy stories by Mallory Hall, Renee Michaels, Shannon Robinson, and Collette Thomas.
Who doesn’t love great elevator sex? A public place, the chance of someone catching you in the act…the four story anthology “Goin’ Down” lives up to the fantasy.
In Fired or Fired Up a weak-willed secretary, Chirene, is fired by her surly but hot boss, Jacob. She enters the elevator to leave her job only to be accompanied down by Jacob. A sense of freedom filling her, she finally tells off her boob of a boss, and he’s turned on by her aggressiveness. I had trouble understanding how Chirene went from doormat to dominant and then from anger to lust so quickly. Her motivation didn’t gel for me, and Jacob was not a likable character. Still, it’s a fun read with red-hot sex.
In The Aft Shaft a fifty-something woman, Marietta, becomes trapped in an elevator on a cruise ship with, Cord, a way-too-young and way-too-hot-to-ignore cowboy. After years of celibacy, Marietta can’t keep her eyes or hands to herself. Realizing his luck, Cord has the best sex of his life with this beautiful and confident woman. After being “rescued,” the lovers are separated only to find they’ve fallen in love. When they meet again and Cord professes his love, I couldn’t help but cheering for them both.
In The Elevator Man Anna gets stuck in an elevator with, Roman, the building manager, who alleviates her fear by talking fantasies. Soon, elevator sex with Roman becomes a weekly ritual until she discovers her best friend is seeing him, too. The ladies team up to wreak vengeance on Roman but then decide to share him. The story was hard to follow at times and the absence of Roman’s point of view made him seem sleazy and un-sexy. The relationship between the two girlfriends was fun, however, and the revenge was entertaining.
In Descent Into Pleasure the smart and sexy Jenna does everything she can to avoid the tempting and delectable Dante, but he has resolved to seduce her body and win her heart, turning her world from all work to a whole lot of fun elevator play. A smart and stubborn female character combined with a determined dominant male gives the reader a very hot and satisfying read. Loved it from beginning to end!
