Review by: Umasreedasan on July 13, 2015 :
With no local slang and less locale specific info, this novella immediately appealed to me as an Indian reader.

Though we could guess the ending, the real talent of the author is in her presentation capability - I couldn't stop reading anywhere.

The portrayal of the character Derek with its contrasting facets is simply wonderful.

A good novella from a talented author.

I enjoyed this quite a bit. It was a fast, easy read. In fact I finished it while I ate my dinner! I thought Lori was an endearing character. Derek sounded really cute and adorable. The ending was a surprise in that I felt it came too rapidly but this was overall a wonderful read and I will recommend it to my friends.

Review by: portlandcars on July 20, 2010 :
I found this novelette to be a quite entertaining read, that is also has a surprisingly emotional depth to it. The overall premise of the story is about a boss and a secretary getting stuck in the elevator after work one night. Although, the entire story takes place in the elevator, there are many flashbacks that reveal the plot line.

What makes this story so incredible is the way that it stirs up emotions of love, fantasy, and the mixing of the two. Anybody who has been in love, or even had a secret crush on somebody, will be able to relate to this story and to Lori and Derek, the two main characters.

I highly recommend spending the 20 minutes it takes to read this novelette. You will quickly feel like you are trapped in the elevator with Lori & Derek and will find this to be a very enjoyable read!
