Lovin’ in an Elevator

By Angelita Gill

For most of us, time spent in an elevator is hands-down awkward. Sharing such a small space—even for a matter of seconds—with a stranger, seems to put most of us in a guarded, uncomfortable state. Because, let’s face it, we all cherish our personal space and elevators take it away from you. We give a hello and step aside, but no one over the age of five enjoys riding elevators. And we all join in on the automatic staring at the digital counter until we arrive at our designated floor with that triumphant feeling of escape.

In my 1NightStand story, Hungry for Touch, an elevator happens to be where the hero and heroine meet…and where the sparks fly hot and fast. Kimber isn’t aware the stranger is the military man Madame Eve set her up with; Nate has no idea his arranged date and the woman that smells like sweet sweat and tropical oil are one in the same. When the elevator malfunctions, that’s when the fun really begins.

Chemistry-building banter fires up a sexual tension that results in a kiss that leaves both burning for more. Though Kimber and Nate both have specific, private reasons for turning to 1NightStand, it all comes down to something humans all crave: touch. Don’t miss how fate and Madame made these two world-weary people come together by purchasing Hungry for Touch.

Have you ever been attracted to a stranger in an elevator and wished you’d said something? Or locked eyes and silently 
hoped they would make a move?

  1. No, but it would have been nice! I'm really really picky about the guys I like - course now I'm married, I'm not supposed to like any guys but the one I'm with. I think people go out of their way to avoid eye contact in elevators. Maybe they're worried they would be attracted or that if the thing broke down, they might have to eat the other person to survive ---oops straying off topic.

  2. No fun experiences for me like that. I usually have the kids with me anyway. Oh well... That is why I love to read 1NS. I can live through the characters.

  3. I can't say I've been lucky enough to get into an elevator with someone that I hope would show some interest. Of course most of the time the elevator is full or close too so no one looks at each other. You just want to get out because it's just too close contact! LOL!


  4. I do not recall, so I don't think that I have. I am afraid of elevators. I try to just focus on my breathing and sometimes close my eyes. I am not claustrophobic, but have a fear of falling and I guess I have seen one too many movies with the elevator plummeting to the bottom. Lol.
    This sounds like a great sexy story, though! Thank you for the opportunity to read it. :)

  5. There have been plenty of times that I wished I would have said something, but only one time I did. :) It was a great experience!

  6. Well that hasn't happen to me and won't happen unless there is to many stairs but usually I try to ovoid elevators lol but maybe some day. Btw congrats ;) and awesome giveaway

  7. Nope. If I'm trapped in a box with someone I find attractive, I shriek like a howler monkey and flap my arms like a chicken. If they can't handle all that, they can't handle me.

  8. I usually avoid looking at people in the elevator, Lots of strange creepy people in elevators LOL!

  9. LOL! I love reading all of your comments, sounds like kissing strangers in an elevator is strictly the stuff of fiction ;) I remember once when a guy strolled in the elevator wearing a suit and smelled like carnal SIN. lol There just wasn't enough time to for me summon courage to get flirty. 3 seconds is only for the truly brave. haha. I will notify the winner of the free copy of Hungry for Touch tomorrow! Thanks so much for participating, I love writing for 1NS and super appreciate our awesome, dedicated readers.
