Title: Hearts in Darkness
Makenna James thinks her day can't get any worse, until she finds herself stranded in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call, the pin-striped accountant catches only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights go out.
Caden Grayson is amused when a harried redhead dashes into his elevator fumbling her bags and cell phone. 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.
One pitch-black elevator…
To fight fear, they must 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?

Hearts in Darkness is one of the many books I own that I wonder how did I have this book for so long without reading it before now. Caden will also remain close to the top of my favorite hero list forever. He drives a Jeep and has tattoos and piercings. Yep, he was made for me. *sighs*
First of all big time kudos to Laura Kaye for kicking up the sexual tension early on in this book and keeping it simmering just below a boil for the entire book. Oh Caden and Makenna make one hot read. Could you imagine meeting under those circumstances. That alone makes this sweet romance all the more unique thus a must read.
Caden and Makenna quickly move from strangers to confidants as Caden reaches out for anything to calm the panic that is quickly rising to push him over. Makenna does not know anything about the man in the elevator with her other than she seems to calm his anxiety about their current predicament. The distraction technique brings Makenna and Caden closer together. They have far more in common that they ever would have expected. They just have to get past all the awkwardness that would have kept them from ever knowing each other once the power comes back on and sends them back into the real world and their very different lives.
This is such an amazing sweet love story. Treat yourself to something awesome and buy this book. I can promise you will not regret it.
