Cici, the female lead character, was a funny woman with verbal diarrhea. I enjoyed her so much. She had her quirks such as yelling former presidential names when she climaxed, yes I'm not kidding and it was hilarious! Her roommate was her one eyed cat Leroy who also had his quirks just like his owner. It was an exciting ride to watch Cici meet the attractive Cole and connect with him in a stalled elevator. I felt their attraction instantly and he was such a great opponent to Cici. Their relationship was romantic and funny.
Cici's best friend Maggie was hilarious too and also had her weird ways. They had their own way of communicating and it only added to the laughs.
Katherine Stevens definitely delivered a romance comedy that I fell in love with. Her writing was fresh, flawless and just flowed. I couldn't stop reading. She's definitely an author I'm going look out for in the future.
Anyhow Cici is a mid-level manager of a small company. The book starts with a big corporation swallowing the said company whole and the resulting restructuring. Last day in the new office was over for Cici and she took the elevator down to go back home to her lonely life. Actually forget what I just said: she owned a tom cat Leroy and the guy was going well beyond his duty to make her life exciting. Any owner of a cat - including yours truly - will know exactly what it means.
Coming back to Cici the elevator got stuck between the floors in the empty building with all means of outside communication not working or not available. Stuck with her was a handsome stranger Cole not seen by the heroine before. After some meaningless banter, light snack consisting of some granola bars left in Cici's purse and napping the couple decided the best way to kill some time was to have sex - there was a mutual attraction.
The sex was great and the morning hours were coming, so it seemed Cici's misadventures were over. Little did she know they just barely started. First thing she realized in the morning after regaining her freedom was that Cole was her new direct subordinate. Full stop. Ask George Costanza about how it is not a good idea to have sex at the place you work (Seinfeld, ep. The Red Dot).
The situation was the following: two people were working together; they were also madly in love with each other and could not keep hands off each other. Add to this Cici's superhuman abilities and you might get the idea.
In case it was not clear it is a romance book. It also happened to be outrageously funny (I laughed out loud a lot). It is funny enough even for the people that are not into the genre to try it. If you are looking for a read with some deep meaningful philosophy which will turn your life around and make a Tibetan monk out of you, look elsewhere. If you just want to have fun, raise your spirits and laugh this might be the book you want to read. I quite like it.
Thanks again to my friend Patty for recommending the book. I was looking for something funny and this one delivered in spades.
I loved this book and this story -- it was a great new twist on a classic romCom.
Cole works for Cici in a company with some serious intercompany dating issues and a faulty elevator. Of course Cici doesn't know that yet when she gets trapped over night in said elevator with the hot guy!
Ms Stevens did a great job of making the story fun and silly and yet interesting and believable
I cannot wait to read her next one
