Can you fall in love in thirteen hours?
It's her birthday but lonely workaholic Dana Watts is at the office late, drafting a proposal. The very last interruption she expects comes in the form of the most beautiful breasts she has ever seen. These belong to an incredibly hot woman, who is standing in front of her, stripping to music. Laurel Stanley performs strip-o-grams to pay her way through school. She has never encountered a more ungrateful recipient than Dana. The uptight project manager makes it clear that she is furious to be distracted from her work by the "gift" a colleague sent and equally appalled by Laurel's occupation. After Dana is rude and insulting, and insists on escorting Laurel from the building, the two women take an elevator ride that changes everything.
Stuck with each other for thirteen long hours after the elevator breaks down, they discover how wrong first impressions can be and how right two strangers can feel together. Can everything change in less than a day? Dana and Laurel set out to discover if their passionate elevator encounter can mean more in this fast-paced, erotic story of lust, loneliness, fantasy, and desire.

i love love love the sex sxene. Gave me some wonderful ideas..... i just hope my boo will be as willing as Dana..... love the book. Magan you did it again gurl!!!!
This book is 85% sex and edgy sex. This book could have used a plot, but maybe that was not the plan? Ever drop your phone and accidentally have your book start up at the office? This is the one you DO NOT want to do that. LOL.
Say something about yourself!
Yes. The sex scenes was very erotic. Too bad the performance was lacking.
Yes for the same reasons has above.
No. I thought that her performance lacked emotion and was rather dull.
I really liked the idea behind the story. The sex and romance between Dana and Laurel was very hot. Too bad they couldn't get someone else to do the audio.
It was a hot, lesbian erotic novel that didn't just end when they got together. It couldn't actually end when they got together because the Thirteen Hours in the title was at the beginning of the book and really explains how they started their relationship.
The sex scenes were very good. Explicit, so if you don't like that in your books, this is not for you. Very well written as well. I also liked how real the relationship was between the two women. Not everything was roses and chocolate. O'Brien actually filled in how they continued to get close and how they each overcame the natural blips in the road that every relationship has in the beginning.
Aimes did do a great job at keeping the two women distinct. I don't believe I was ever confused as to who was speaking and who did what.
The only extreme reaction I had was getting turned on by scenes O'Brien wrote. There were places where she made me laugh, too.
There aren't a lot of lesbian romances out there, which makes me turn to heterosexual romances instead. For any lesbians out there looking for a great story, look no further. I did immediately look to see if O'Brien had other books available on Audible and was very disappointed that she didn't.
I would read another book by Meghan O'Brien/Alicyn Aimes.
The way Dana and Laurel meet could have been more developed. By the end I didn't care if they had more sex or not. It seemed like that's all they did. I would have really enjoyed more back story and how they interact with the outside world.
She did a wonderful job
no clue, it would be a 'R' movie.
The book was fine, the narration was great, Alycyn did a good job. Believe it or not, I would have enjoyed more story and less sex (I never thought I'd say that). The book was more of a timeline of Dana and Laurel's sex life - it took you from one escapade to another.
I only listened to the first 15-20 mins and was disgusted by the sexual nature of this book.
I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
This was an awful read! The story line was bad and the narrator was bad! NOT worth the credit!
"Not really my thing - mostly erotica"
Not really my thing:
Okay well, I gathered from the first chapters there would be erotica in the novel which is fine, and I have read many of books which contain such content, but I am a romantic and prefer, character development, turmoil, drama, conflicts and resolution. I also have an attention detail and things which don't make sense bug me, and undermine the prose. So when comparing this novel with the type I like to read, romantic lesfic, I struggled to give this book three stars. Maybe being harsh, but the there were too many character actions which did not fit the described personality traits. It was only hours into the book when the reclusive, relationship shy software manager, who was only interested in getting her project report done, was asking the friendly kind stripper to simulate... Other plot devices did not sit well with my brain, for example report being lost because of a power failure; managers mostly work on laptops laptops have battery, a laptop goes to sleep and keep a laptop running for days. If its a desktop then a software company should have UPS. Okay maybe they don't have USP, and its a desktop, but all word processing applications have auto-save, and file recovery. Okay you can see how my mind works, and I'm being pedantic I know, But it kinda shows how this is not my kind of novel. I might have realized better from the cover of the novel if I had checked goodreads first. Audible had cropped off the top of the picture, so it just shows briefcase and blue jeans. I guess i would have judged the book by its cover more as a erotica then romance if I had seen that.:-)
