3.5 or so.

It was cute, and funny...and maybe I know people in Chicago and/or in the advertising field, which just throws my ability to suspend disbelief out the door.

The friends of mine in the advertising/graphic arts field are self-employed NOW, and not by choice. They also work out of their homes. And why shouldn't they? You don't need an office for one or two people to do advertising. That's unnecessary overhead. Also, they get work mostly by word of mouth and people they worked for while the

B576 Nov10 Sam Finn, CEO, and Julie Thompson meet in the elevator. He does not tell her he own the building. She tells him her web business is failing and she will leave Chicago in 3 weeks.
With enough elevator smexing to fuel all your forbidden fantasies (in an elevator of course!) this is one book in the Blaze line that is of the must-read category. My first Kathy Lyons definitely whetted my appetite for more of her books and she is an author I will keep an eye on from now onwards.

Shelves: romance
The perfect book for those who have a fantasy about screwing an absolute stranger in the elevator at work only to of course have him be a robotics genius millionnaire love of your life (as opposed to the actual maintenance man who is about 50 and has 2 teeth). Hero is ... talented at creating sex toys as well as medical robots. Hot.

I would have liked it more if Julie didn't constantly refer to Sam as "My Elevator Man". The master/slave role-playing got old too.
