REVIEW – GETTING OFF (Elevator Series, #1.5) by Katherine Stevens

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



A recipe for a perfect Thanksgiving disaster:
Add 1 cup of contagious disease
2 cups of secrets
Stir in too much family togetherness
Sprinkle on some awkward porn viewing
Heat at 350 degrees

A year after Going Down, Cole and Cici are still crazy about each other. Despite their relationship no longer being a secret, they can’t seem to catch a break. All Cici wanted was one perfect holiday, and all Cole wanted was dibs on some cranberry sauce.
As usual, Cici has a carefully laid out plan. And as usual, the universe has a different—more hilarious—plan. Will Cici be able to give up her idea of perfection and go with the flow?

Sometimes letting go is the secret to getting off.

His tongue did wonderful, magical things. Like unicorns-dancing-in-cotton-candy-clouds magical. Before meeting Cole, I was convinced no man could find a G-spot without two maps, GPS navigation, and a set of road flares.



Cole & Cici are back and they are sexier and funnier than ever!!! I think I may have fallen madly in love with Katherine Stevens!! I thought that GOING DOWN was unbelievably funny but then she goes and writes GETTING OFF and she did the unthinkable….she OUTDID herself!!! This lady needs to be writing for a sitcom or movies for one of my favorite comedic actresses, Melissa McCarthy!!! I swear I lost count of how many times I busted out laughing while reading this book!! I haven’t laughed this hard since reading Wallbangerand The Unidentified Redhead. This author has fast become one of my top favorite ROMCOM writers!! If you are in need of something funny or just craving it, I’m telling you, you need to bump this series up on your TBRs!!!

It’s Thanksgiving and Cole & Cici are on their way to his parents to spend the holiday with his family. Cici’s extremely nervous because she has something big that she needs to tell Cole. Things get crazy in the Danver’s household when the entire family, including Cici and the cook, come down with a horrible case of pink-eye thanks to Cole’s younger brother, John. From then on, it is just one laugh riot after the other. The embarrassing situations keep piling up. First, the Danvers children become all too painfully aware of their parents love for Spanish porn, and then they all play an interesting game of Never Have I Everthat outs Cici on several mortifying facts about her that have her wishing she could crawl into a hole and die. But this family is so tight-knit and beyond hilarious and they’ve accepted Cici as one of their own, so no amount of embarrassing revelations is going to change their opinion of her.


When a few unexpected guests show up, let’s just say Cici’s embarrassment level is about to skyrocket to another hemisphere. This is either going to be the best Thanksgiving Cole & Cici will ever have or it will end up being the night that shatters their relationship. It sounds pretty dubious, but I assure you what might seem to be an utterly devastating moment will result in some serious tummy aches from the hardcore laughter that is sure to follow.

I really can’t say enough about this series. This novella was utter perfection but it leaves me wanting more of Cole & Cici. I need at least a few more books dedicated to these two characters. Cole is one hell of a swoon worthy book boyfriend and Cici is that heroine that you wish you had as your BFF.

Do yourselves a favor, one click this series! I promise you, you’re in for some serious off the charts hotter than H steam and more laughs than your belly can handle!!! A fabulous feel-good series!!!
