4 Stars to Hearts in Darkness
Remember the Aerosmith song, Love in an Elevator. I’ve convinced myself that Laura Kaye is an Aerosmith fan and this song was on repeat. Because what’s she’s done with Hearts in Darkness is give every woman the simple thought that they would like to get caught in an elevator with a hunk of man . . . because flat out, you just don’t know what you’re going to get under that rough exterior.
Case in point with Caden Rowe, he’s damaged, tattooed, pierced, tough exterior, and very rip. Most women would be a little afraid to stand on an elevator with someone like this and most would be downright petrified to get stuck for hours with this man.
But not Makenna.
When the elevator stops and they are left in the pitch black with her on one side and he on the other, they strike up an unlikely friendship. It’s always easier to tell your secrets in the dark to some stranger and that is exactly what they end up doing. The only difference with these two, they are having the awkward get to know ya stage in one fell swoop and it’s intense.
When the elevator finally comes to life, neither are sure what to do next, but Caden knows he’s not ready to let Makenna out of his sight so he drives her home and she invites him up for dinner and . . . well you need to read the rest!
