Publisher's Summary

Can you fall in love in thirteen hours?
It's her birthday but lonely workaholic Dana Watts is at the office late, drafting a proposal. The very last interruption she expects comes in the form of the most beautiful breasts she has ever seen. These belong to an incredibly hot woman, who is standing in front of her, stripping to music. Laurel Stanley performs strip-o-grams to pay her way through school. She has never encountered a more ungrateful recipient than Dana. The uptight project manager makes it clear that she is furious to be distracted from her work by the "gift" a colleague sent and equally appalled by Laurel's occupation. After Dana is rude and insulting, and insists on escorting Laurel from the building, the two women take an elevator ride that changes everything.
Stuck with each other for thirteen long hours after the elevator breaks down, they discover how wrong first impressions can be and how right two strangers can feel together. Can everything change in less than a day? Dana and Laurel set out to discover if their passionate elevator encounter can mean more in this fast-paced, erotic story of lust, loneliness, fantasy, and desire.

Not really my thing - mostly erotica

Not really my thing:

Okay well, I gathered from the first chapters there would be erotica in the novel which is fine, and I have read many of books which contain such content, but I am a romantic and prefer, character development, turmoil, drama, conflicts and resolution. I also have an attention detail and things which don't make sense bug me, and undermine the prose. So when comparing this novel with the type I like to read, romantic lesfic, I struggled to give this book three stars. Maybe being harsh, but the there were too many character actions which did not fit the described personality traits. It was only hours into the book when the reclusive, relationship shy software manager, who was only interested in getting her project report done, was asking the friendly kind stripper to simulate... Other plot devices did not sit well with my brain, for example report being lost because of a power failure; managers mostly work on laptops laptops have battery, a laptop goes to sleep and keep a laptop running for days. If its a desktop then a software company should have UPS. Okay maybe they don't have USP, and its a desktop, but all word processing applications have auto-save, and file recovery. Okay you can see how my mind works, and I'm being pedantic I know, But it kinda shows how this is not my kind of novel. I might have realized better from the cover of the novel if I had checked goodreads first. Audible had cropped off the top of the picture, so it just shows briefcase and blue jeans. I guess i would have judged the book by its cover more as a erotica then romance if I had seen that.:-)
