Book Review: Going Up – Amy Lane

via goodreads

via goodreads

Every dreary day, Zach Driscoll takes the elevator from the penthouse apartment of his father’s building to his coldly charmed life where being a union lawyer instead of a corporate lawyer is an act of rebellion. Every day, that is, until the day the elevator breaks and Sean Mallory practically runs into his arms.

Substitute teacher Sean Mallory is everything Zach is not—poor, happy, and goofily charming. With a disarming smile and a penchant for drama, Sean laughs his way into Zach’s heart one elevator ride at a time. Zach would love to get to know Sean better, but first he needs the courage to leave his ivory tower and face a relationship that doesn’t end at the “Ding!” via Goodreads

This one didn’t really work for me. It was comical to the point of being folly. I loved Amy Lane but this story’s just too bland with uninspired characters. The elevator “dates” are just downright ridiculous. Like seriously? I’m like, get his freaking number already and ask him out on a freaking date!!!! It’s just way too over the top for me and it’s not even romantic at the least. I’m almost sorry I’ve to give this a 2 star rating.

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
