Callie Montgomery has lost all self esteem since catching her now ex-husband in an affair with their much younger dog sitter no less. Callie has decided to put her career first proving that she doesn’t need a man to survive. She has been working for a temp agency and has recently been working for the remarkable Stephanie Weaver who has come to town to get her big new office building up and running. Callie has become invaluable to Stephanie.

Staying late in case her services are needed, Callie meets the devilishly handsome and very British Dominic Colbourne who is a big investor in the new building. While Stephanie and Dominic are meeting Callie is having lovely fantasies about the handsome Brit. After the meeting Stephanie asks Callie to escort Dominic out on her private elevator. The hour is late and the building is closed up for the night. Being the dutiful employee Callie ushers Dominic onto the elevator. They are on their way down when you guessed it there is a mechanical problem and the elevator stops. There is no one else in the building so the two have no choice but to spend the long hot night in the elevator with nothing to do but talk.

Going Down? is Ms. Kauffman’s second offering for the Brava line and this one is every bit as sexy as the first. Going Down? sets the scene for a very long night of exploration with two people who have nothing to do to kill the hours but talk and reveal their innermost feelings to each other. The love scenes are certainly hot and make the reader long for a stranded elevator and their own Dominic to explore the long hours until morning. As a long time fan of Ms. Kauffman’s work it is good to see this author branch out into other areas with her writing. Long time fans as well as new readers will find this story quite entertaining.
