Review: Going Down

The plan for Cici Carrington was to steadily climb UP the corporate ladder, and hopefully do so without her skirt tucked into the back of her underpants. Unfortunately, there was no contingency plan for the aftermath of spending a night trapped in an elevator with a suit-wearing Elevator Sex God named Cole Danvers. A one…or two-time dalliance wouldn’t normally throw off the course of someone’s life…unless you find out you have to work together the next day.
To further complicate matters, Cici’s best friend is also her Human Resources Director. She has to hide her secret from every person she knows. Her only confidant is her one-eyed cat, and his loyalty is tenuous at best. Toss in an accidental mugging, a bungled disguise, secret meetings, and unintentional arson, and Cici’s beautiful, careful plan has fallen by the wayside.
Perhaps there aren’t any hard and fast rules in life. Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too. Sometimes following the rules doesn’t get you ahead.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: June 2016

Mature content: yes

Review: I saw this book recommended on Goodreads and since everyone was saying it was a funny, laugh out loud read, I decided to give it a try. I admit that as far as the English language goes, it's fairly well written, yes, but that's about it. The plot is barely there, it's offensive in places and plain idiotic in others and there's no romance, just a sequence of out of place sex scenes. I didn't find it funny at all and I was severely disappointed. Going Down is one of the rare books I decided not to finish, because continuing to read it would just be a waste of time, so I don't recommend it at all.

Happy Wednesday,
