Review: Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye

August 1, 2012
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Release Date: April, 2011
Genre: Contemporary, Adult
Pages: 112
Synopsis (from Goodreads): 
Makenna James thinks her day can't get any worse, until she finds herself stuck in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call and juggling too much stuff, the pin-striped accountant caught only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights went out.

Caden Grayson is amused when a redhead literally falls at his feet. 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.

To fight fear, they must both 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 the sweetest short story I've read. While reading it, I just had a goofy smile on my face. Not only that, this book has really some hot and intimidating moments. I just loved it, and wished it longer.

     Makenna, a forensic accountant, and Caden, a paramedic, are stuck in an old elevator, and end up having the best ride of their lives. Its just so nerve-racking being in a dark box with a stranger, and the author did very well portraying those feelings. The story was told from both the protagnists' POV. The only thing I wished was done better was that between the change in views, the author tend to go back a scene which was confusing at times. Nevertheless, this book/short story is perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and recommend everyone to give it a try.
