**Review** Elevator Heat ~ B.D. Rowe

Synopsis ~ 

Twenty-year-old Maddie has had a crush on Colin, her studly internship supervisor, for three long months. She struggles focusing on her work, and always finds herself gazing at his wavy brown hair, his chiseled cheekbones, his kissable lips. Little does she know, however, that he has feelings for her, too.

The problem is no matter how much time they spend together in the office, neither one can ever make the first move.

That is, until they both step into the old, rickety elevator late one Friday night.

And things start to get a little steamy...

Amy's Thoughts ~ 

**Provided by NetGalley in exchanged for an Honest Review** 

Very Short Novella. Not a bad story, just not a lot of emotional connection to the characters. Maddie Lowell works as an intern for a casting agent in downtown LA. Colin Florest is her co-worker. and she loves him. He loves her too. But they know next to nothing about each other, until the elevator. 

The layout of this book is one I've never seen. There's a very repetitve scene in it, and it's the 2 hours leading up to the elevator. We get it at the beginning of the book, from Maddie's POV, from Colin's POV, then the full scene itself and aftermath. In my opinion, this is all very unnecessary and was just used to take up space. There could have been so much more to this. More depth to the characters, more moments leading up to their "love", and their connection. 

Again, not a BAD storyline, just could have had so much more. It's a good read if you're looking for zero emotional connections to the the MCs. Honestly, I felt like this was a waste of good reading time and I more than likely won't pick it up again.
