The Elevator (Close Proximity #1)

Blurb 

Adrian Hughes is a geek who sucks at social interaction because awkward is his middle name. Even though he’s gay, he’s the opposite of flamboyant (when they were handing out fabulous, he was hiding in another room). Even so, he’s always wanted a boyfriend—who doesn’t want to find love?—but so far, the closest he’s gotten to it is crushing on the hot older guy he only sees on the elevator. So what happens when he’s trapped inside it with Mr. Zillionaire Hottie during a heat wave brownout? He stutters like an idiot, because Mr. Greyson Lee is unexpectedly cool, calm, and collected … right up until he’s not.

When kissing leads to sex, Adrian can’t say no. But is it just a hookup? Or is it the start of something more?

The Cabin (Close Proximity #2) 

Blurb 

Flynn is having a terrible day—his fiancée jilted him at the altar and now he’s alone on his honeymoon. Going to a wilderness resort by himself was probably not his best idea, but then artist Beau Green arrives to make everything even more complicated. A reservation mistake and stormy weather means the charismatic black man is out of options for the night, but Flynn can’t let someone sleep on a cold floor when there’s a perfectly good sofa in his cabin. When the power dies, Flynn ends up on the sofa, too, because there’s only one fireplace, and freezing is not part of his plan for the day.

Also not planned? Having sex with a dude, but Beau is everything his ex is not—kind, strong, and intelligent. Unfortunately, Flynn is straight, and falling for a man might be one disaster too many for him to handle.

Review

These do not need to be read together but they are short little snippets so why not?

In Book 1 – we have a nerdy guy who ends up trapped in an elevator with his secret crush. Needless to say they end up learning more about each other and deciding to explore that. Don’t expect a lot of romance – this is erotica, plain and simple – however, the romance is sweet.

Book 2

This was my favorite of the 2 – mostly because – though it is still very much erotica – it had a bit more “meat” to the romance side of things. Granted, our guys fall into bed very easily and into love even more easily, but it was super sweet and really fun to read.
