This was a nice story, but I think it would have worked better if we were given Sean’s POV. Zach was a bit boring. It was also hard to believe that Zach spent the majority of his life fighting for people’s rights, but managed not to have any friends. There wasn’t much dialogue or relationship building taking place. Their meetings in the elevator started out cute, but then got weary. The highlight of the story was Zach’s secretary, Leah. There was also the treat of seeing Jace and Quent from one of my favorite Lane stories, Gambling Men.
Every dreary day, Zach Driscoll takes the elevator from the penthouse apartment of his father’s building to his coldly charmed life where being a union lawyer instead of a corporate lawyer is an act of rebellion. Every day, that is, until the day the elevator breaks and Sean Mallory practically runs into his arms.
Substitute teacher Sean Mallory is everything Zach is not—poor, happy, and goofily charming. With a disarming smile and a penchant for drama, Sean laughs his way into Zach’s heart one elevator ride at a time. Zach would love to get to know Sean better, but first he needs the courage to leave his ivory tower and face a relationship that doesn’t end at the “Ding!”
