Hearts in the Darkness by Laura Kaye

Makenna James thinks her day can't get any worse, until she finds herself stuck in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call and juggling too much stuff, the pin-striped accountant caught only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights went out.

Caden Grayson is amused when a redhead literally falls at his feet. His amusement turns to panic when the power fails. Despite his piercings, tats, and vicious scar, he's terrified of the dark and confined spaces. Now, he's trapped in his own worst nightmare.

To fight fear, they must both reach out and open up. With no preconceived notions based on looks to hold them back, they discover just how much they have in common. In the warming darkness, attraction grows and sparks fly, but will they feel the same when the lights come back on?

Reviewer: QueenBee
It's rare to see a novella which manages to be more than a sex scene and has a detailed storyline. Hearts in the Darkness is one of these rare novellas and it was pleasure to read a book where the author managed to create a story while not cutting the sex scenes. Makenna and Caden’s chance meeting in an elevator sets the precedent for the story and it was amusing to see the typical reactions from a man as Caden discreetly eyes Makenna in the elevator.

The two main characters seemed total opposite at first but it wasn’t the typical butt heads scenario that we usually get in this situation. In fact it was tender and romantic which made the book more enjoyable.

I have to give it 4.5 stars. This book is crying for a sequel, I would really like to see Caden meet Makenna's family since that didn’t happen in this story.
