At a Glance: A well done novella for anyone who wants a quick, sexy read
Blurb: Quiet elevator installer Joe Taylor craves more stability in his career, but not in his personal life. Casual sex suits him, and when he meets fitness center owner Bill Evans at a mall where they are both working, they agree on no-strings-attached weekend hookups. Both men have fought hard to escape their pasts and are afraid to commit, so the agreement works well for them—at first. But when the sex gets hotter by the weekend and a deeper connection forms, Joe and Bill wonder if a relationship is feasible, especially since Joe’s work makes it impossible for him to settle down. Joe must consider his changing priorities and decide if he can take a risk on something beyond the physical.

Review: The Elevator Mechanic is a great, quick read I enjoyed, and I liked that it wasn’t your typical workplace romance. Our MCs are both down to earth guys who have worked hard to get where they are. In this book we meet Joe, the shy elevator mechanic who seems to want more out of life but doesn’t have the confidence to stand up for what’s right and go after what he wants. Then there’s Bill Evans, the sexy, kind, new business owner.
While it was nice to see two guys go from one-night-stand to smexy buddies to relationship, it would have been nice to see them get to know more about each other, get their back-stories, the events that shaped their pasts as well. The story also seemed a little one sided but having said that, this book is about Joe and Bill’s relationship, and it’s a well done novella for anyone who wants a quick, sexy read!
