Feb 22, Kay rated it liked it Shelves: At first she did everything to draw his attention to her feminine wiles, but Peter never seemed to notice. Around midnight they sneak out of the gala only to get stuck in the elevator when the power goes blavkout.
That is until Lucy reaches up and kisses him, and Peter is lost. Peter is one of those hunky geeks that women gravitate to.
Blame It on the Blackout
I loved the vulnerability his claustrophobia gave him and how terrified he becomes that Lucy is going to leave him when he explains why he can’t do relationships. Lucy is a lovely heroine though not much of the go-getter that I would have liked her to be; that is until the end of the book. The elevator scene takes place in the third chapter, and then the book sort of lags where I found myself easily distracted.
Though by the seventh chapter things heat up again very nicely and the balance of the book gripped me and I was eager to see how Ms.
Blame It on the Blackout
Betts brought them together. This is a read well balanced with emotional moments and fun lighter hearted ones. I really liked the secondary character Ethan, and I understand he has his own book.

She harbors the attraction right back, but their professionalism blakcout always gotten in the way. That and Peter’s solid belief that because his father was a rotten family man, so will he be. But, in a moment of claustrophobic panic in a darkened elevator, Peter ends up having sex with Lucy.
Then the awkwardness sets in.
Peter still wants Lucy in his bed, but doesn’t want to hurt her by failing to b Peter’s a dedicated blackour programmer who has been harboring an attraction for his secretary Lucy. Peter still wants Lucy in his bed, but doesn’t want to hurt her by failing to be a good relationship guy, while Lucy knows this about him but she has to fight her baser urges and let her cool head, which tells her that Peter will not settle down, prevail. This starts out great, with a friends-to-lovers sort of theme and a super hot sex scene in the elevator.
Even the aftermath was pretty riveting as the two try to pick up the pieces of the sexual explosion and piece their working relationship and friendship back together. But blaackout, both of them get pretty damn immature, as soon Lucy realizes that Peter isn’t going to be in a long-term relationship. She starts flirting with his friend, telling herself that he’s not interested so she should start looking for someone else despite her having realized that she’s hdidi love with him.
I might have been okay with that if she’d realized that she was subconsciously trying to make him jealous or something – but consciously thinking it’s time to get over him only hours after he’s put the brakes on, is pretty cold-hearted. Then, after heudi have sex again, she actually skips town while Peter’s out buying more condoms he’s literally gone for 5 minutes and she disappears.
I onn want to have sex with her anyway! Which isn’t too far an exaggeration actually. It takes a third-person to get them to put their big-kid pants on and face hlame other. The resolution was satisfying at least, and the epilogue was sweet. May 19, Dimple Gohil rated it liked it Shelves: This material may be protected by copyright. It’s your typical boss and administrative assistant romance.
Each other attractive, but they don’t want to take that step and ut the friendship and that professional relationship. I like both the characters, and their friend who was a major player but was instrumental in the getting together in the end.
The book is quite shallow and the “above which I have put as A spoiler explains the whole book in a blackiut concise manner.
However I would recommend it is a fun book to read for light reading. Jan 07, Jae rated it really blackoit it Shelves: A simple story about a girl lusting after her gorgeous boss. And the boss being the man that he is, was oblivious to the fact. Up until the night they got stuck together in an elevator and did the dirty deed.
Good thing they were the only ones in the elevator that time. Very fast paced and very funny bettd times too. I hope there will be Ethan’s story next.
This bette was hot, yet sweet enough for me. Peter and Lucy have always been attracted to each other, but always thought the other wasn’t interested. When the lights go out on an elevator ride, the truth is revealed. I always enjoy friends-to-lovers romances, and this was a good one.
