Sometimes letting go is the secret to getting off.

Short, saucy and salaciously naughty, this offering was just what the doctor ordered. Or better said, the gal who took it on herself to make sure everyone sat down to a Thanksgiving meal was the perfect distraction. And whether or not it was the perfect disaster, you’ll have to find out for yourselves! Overflowing with innuendos and a banter that gave me a belly full of laughs, it’ll give you a pretty good insight into Cole’s crazy family. He’s pulled out the big guns and confessed to the love of his life about their competitiveness in this little gem of a novella. To see how far they’re capable of pushing their luck was a joy and a half to read. In fact, I found their shenanigans quite exhausting and never knew what to expect next.
“I’m going to rent another family next year!”
But regardless of Cici’s first impression of Cole’s parents and his siblings which in itself was nothing less than hilariously embarrassing, they all go out of their way to make her feel at home. Still head of heels in love with Cole, she’s got to pluck up the courage to do something which doesn’t go quite as planned. I can’t possibly let on because it’d spoil the read for you. But I will say this, Cole’s ideas are on par with hers.
“I’m thankful to all of you letting me into your lives and making my family a lot bigger.”
Of course, you’ve got to read Going Down first to get the gist of Cole and Cici’s sexapades. Whoops, spelling mistake! I meant escapades! And if you’ve had the pleasure of meeting these two adorable characters, you’ll know by now that Ms Stevens usage of colourful vocabulary is hmm. . . a tad explicit! How she goes about writing such outrageous scenarios in a fast-moving plot and make them work had me once again, questioning her imagination. And to be honest, she’s a dab hand at pulling it off.
“Your brain is so weirdly adorable. I love you.”
All the characters’ eccentric traits are unquestionably well-developed. This book is easily read and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending it to those of you who need cheering up. It will brighten your mood, make you tingle in all the right places and when you turn last page, I have no doubt you’ll be grinning from ear to ear like I did. My rating. Well, I think it could have been a little bit longer, but that might just be my greediness! So looking forward to more writing extravaganzas from Ms Stevens. BRAVO!
“I had no idea you two were so freaky. This is disturbing on a whole new level. My therapist is going to have a field day.”

The plan for Cici Carrington was to steadily climb UP the corporate ladder, and hopefully do so without her skirt tucked into the back of her underpants. Unfortunately, there was no contingency plan for the aftermath of spending a night trapped in an elevator with a suit-wearing Elevator Sex God named Cole Danvers. A one…or two-time dalliance wouldn’t normally throw off the course of someone’s life…unless you find out you have to work together the next day.
To further complicate matters, Cici’s best friend is also her Human Resources Director. She has to hide her secret from every person she knows. Her only confidant is her one-eyed cat, and his loyalty is tenuous at best. Toss in an accidental mugging, a bungled disguise, secret meetings, and unintentional arson, and Cici’s beautiful, careful plan has fallen by the wayside.
Perhaps there aren’t any hard and fast rules in life. Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too. Sometimes following the rules doesn’t get you ahead.
And perhaps sometimes you can get off between floors…
When Katherine Stevens isn’t writing, she can usually be found opening juice boxes and looking for lost shoes. Her kids keep her quite busy and always zig-zagging across the line of sanity. She is a lifelong Texan with a terrible sense of direction and even worse memory. She thinks life is entirely too hard if you don’t laugh your way through it.
As a child, she dreamed of being the most sarcastic astronaut in history, but her poor math skills and aversion to dehydrated food kept her out of the space program. Now she writes to pass the time until NASA lowers their standards. Your move, NASA!
