Peek Inside Flirting with the Competition

But when the elevator they're sharing comes to an abrupt stop, they're stuck—together. The only thing they have in common is determination to get the job...and an unexpected and escalating attraction. And it's only a matter of time before these competitors indulge in a very sexy little connection between floors.

Under normal circumstances, Whitney March might have appreciated sharing an elevator with a ridiculously attractive and clearly wealthy guy. Even enjoyed it. But when her companion turns out to be the man who almost ran her over in parking garage moments earlier? Nope and nope. Besides, she’s on her way to a job interview at a prestigious law firm, and she needs to stay focused. Not staring at the rich and sexy jerk.

Then the elevator comes to an abrupt stop. They’re stuck.

Jordan Campbell has every intention of acing the interview for his dream job, and he’s not about to let anything stop him. Not even the sexy, capable, and fiery woman who turns out to be his main competitor he’s trapped with. The only thing they have in common is determination to get the job…and an escalating attraction. And it’s only a matter of time before these competitors indulge in a very sexy little connection between floors.

Jordan's thoughts when it comes to Whitney are totally carnal, "she tapped her heel-clad foot in a rapid rhythm. Man, she was smokin' hot, and her anger just made her all the more attractive. Nothing turned him on more than a strongwilled woman." Sometimes in order to calm Whitney down Jordan had to ...more

I will admit - I do not like short stories. I do read them occasionally. But I always am left wanting more. Not so with this novel.

This was a fun, short story. I enjoyed the premise of the story, 2 people stuck in an elevator for hours on end.

Cute as a puppy curled up at your feet, this story will warm your heart.

About the author

Kerri Carpenter

Kerri Carpenter began writing in her grandmother's kitchen at the age of seven in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. A life-long fan of reading, she got lost in the worlds of The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. She also assumed that everyone had characters and plots forming in their heads at all times. Once she turned to romance novels, she couldn't get enough of books with happy endings, so she started writing her own. Now, Kerri writes contemporary romances, usually set in small towns. She enjoys reading, cooking, watching movies, taking Zumba classes, rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams, and anything sparkly. Kerri lives in Northern Virginia with her adorable (and mischievous) poodle mix, Harry.
