REVIEW – GOING DOWN (Elevator, #1) by Katherine Stevens

Profile portrait of businessman working on laptop in black suit at studio



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…

I never thought of myself as a swoony girly-girl, but I was swooning lately. Oh, I was swooning like no one had ever swooned before. Tales of my swooniness would be told for generations. I was probably counterbalancing the women’s suffrage movement with how hard I was swooning.


Honestly, I had never heard of Katherine Stevens before I picked up this book, but now after having finished it, this woman is definitely going to be on my radar!! What an awesome feeling to find a new author to love!! The cover and the synopsis piqued my interest but the story reeled me in hook, line, and sinker!! I lost count over how many times I laughed out loud. This book is non-stop laughs but with a healthy dose of panty melting steam to boot!

Cici Carrington is a beautiful, quirky and single girl who lives in a tiny one-bedroom apartment with her one-eyed cat, Leroy, on the lower east side of Manhattan. She works at an advertising agency with her bestie, who is equally if not more quirky than Cici is. One night after quitting time she ends up getting on an elevator with a devilishly handsome man who’s wearing a suit that looks like it was tailor-made to fit his beautiful body!! Her luck gets even better when the elevator breaks down and she is stuck with Mr. Suit Wearing Hottie for HOURS!!!! After hours of chit chat and fun banter, one thing leads to another and clothes are being ripped off and they are having the HOTTEST & LOUDEST sex of their lives!!! Plans are made to meet up again soon but things get a whole lot more complicated when Cici gets a promotion and HR has hired a new assistant for her. The assistant turns out to be Cole Danvers, the HOTTIE Sex God from the elevator!! This throws a huge curveball for them as there is a strict no fraternization rule at work. At first, I was a little disappointed. I wanted him to be her boss. Somehow I thought it would be sexier if he was a man with power, but I couldn’t have been more wrong!!




The no fraternization rules don’t exactly stop these two from having sex on the regular in Cici’s office and the woman isn’t the least bit quiet during the act. You know that it’s inevitable that the two will get busted and that only helped to keep me on pins and needles every time they threw caution to the wind and would engage in all kinds of hot & dirty sex in the office!! And, OMG, this story was so hysterical! Cici is the biggest nerd and completely accident prone, and yet Cole couldn’t get enough of her. I fell so completely in love with Mr. Cole Danvers!! He really is ever girl’s dream and worthy of top book boyfriend status!!

This is definitely a book you need to add to your TBRs and try to get to it ASAP!!! I will be keeping Katherine Stevens on my radar from now on and will read anything written by this woman!
