"A swoony rom-com brimming with humor and charm."-- Entertainment Weekly (The Must List)

"What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel....One of the best books I've read in a while."--Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Hunger

Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn't normally do. But there's something about Drew Nichols that's too hard to resist.

On the eve of his ex's wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend....

After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she's the mayor's chief of staff. Too bad they can't stop thinking about the other....

They're just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century--or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want....

Booklist Review: "As the assistant to the mayor of Berkeley, Alexa Monroe is a resourceful woman who is prepared for any situation. But when the power suddenly goes out, trapping her in an elevator with a gorgeous doctor, she is unprepared for the sparks that fly between them. Drew Nichols, a pediatric surgeon from L.A., is not in the market for a girlfriend, or a one-night stand. What he needs is a date to his ex's wedding, and Alexa is the perfect combination of sexy and smart who will turn heads and keep him from making a drunken fool of himself. Things get complicated when Drew tells a few white lies about their relationship status and Alexa is expected to act the part of the girlfriend, but their pretense leads to the real thing when they realize they can't get enough of each other. This incredibly delicious meet-cute brings two people together who would not have met otherwise, and though it could have become predictable, Guillory keeps this contemporary romance fresh with well-drawn multicultural characters navigating the perils of long-distance relationships.--Giovanni, Kristina Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Guillory's flat debut, a stalled elevator sparks a fake date that leads to muddled emotions. After Drew Nichols, a sexy pediatrician from Los Angeles, and Alexa Monroe, the Berkeley mayor's chief of staff, are stuck in an elevator together, he inexplicably asks her to be his date at his ex-girlfriend's wedding. The charade develops into a long-distance relationship stifled by doubts and overthinking as the two protagonists attempt to reconcile their emotions and questions about each other's feelings. There are some awkward, sweet, and sexy moments between the newly acquainted characters, but the story wanes as Alexa and Drew attempt a real relationship; complications aren't developed, and the constant overthinking diminishes the strengths of the characters. Mundane details and stilted dialogue add little complexity to the plot or characters, slowing the narrative pace. The protagonists have some amusing quirks and habits that reveal their flaws, but overuse destroys their charm. The lack of exposition and rushed narrative make it difficult to fully identify with the characters or stay engaged with the story, in spite of some sensual episodes.
