Going Up | [Amy Lane]

Going Up

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.

Publisher's Summary

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!"

    "Going Up"
    Would you listen to Going Up again? Why?

    Yes, it was a fun and happy book. It had a Happy Ever After ending that I like.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The lead character and his love interest.


    What does Paul Woodson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The enthusiasm for life and change. The fun of learning how to be a friend and lover.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Learning to live.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a really fun book and I have listened to it several times.

    Story
    "Made me smile"

    Zach is the son of political, rich parents who really don’t care much for their son except as window dressing. He’s the lonely prince in the tower (the penthouse of one of his father’s buildings) who rebelled just enough to be a lawyer who protects people but not much else. He works, he has no friends and he calls in escorts for those times that his loneliness gets to be just too much.
    When he meets Sean, substitute teacher, on the elevator dressed as a cowboy, he is bemused. He’s a bit socially awkward, our Zach, but Sean doesn’t mind. So begins the strange relationship of Sean and Zach via the elevator. Admittedly, it’s an odd way to get to know someone but it’s probably the only way Zach would have been able to. While Sean is the younger and definitely poorer of the two, he is by far the more confident and life experienced.
    We get to know a little more about Zach and it’s heart breaking, really. When Zach tells the story of the train I wanted to squish him. We get to know more of Sean and when Sean dresses as the conductor I wanted to clap and was happy.
    This is the Amy Lane that I love. Solidly on the side of the sweet, with MC that will just grab my heart and twist just a little because I want so much for him, and then make it happy. "You were going to be my dessert." I wanted to reach into the book, pull him out and just hug him. Awesomesauce.
    I was a little worried because this was a new to me narrator. He is now firmly on my list of positives because I thoroughly enjoyed his voice and it added just that much more to a fairy tale story.

    "Of course this is good, it's Amy Lane!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Amy Lane. I cant often handle her because she knows just how to break my heart but I love reading her nonangst. This was a sweet short story. What you see is pretty much what you get. Secondary Characters are amusing. And it's overall a great way to spend an afternoon.


    What does Paul Woodson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    HIS VOICE! I almost crashed my car at that sex scene. No Lie!

    "Cute story"
    Would you try another book from Amy Lane and/or Paul Woodson?

    I love Amy Lane's books. I really love her much more intense broken but not shattered guys, like in Chase in Shadows, Racing for the Sun or Mourning Heaven - unfortunately they have not made those titles into audiobooks yet.


    Would you recommend Going Up to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if they wanted a light, cute read.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Do you think Going Up needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not really, the story wrapped up well

    Story
    "Cute but boring"

    This is a warm and fluffy listen about two men who meet and fall in love during elevator rides. That's it, that's the whole story. No drama, a little angst, but nothing else. If you are looking for a nice light mm romance, get it as a sale purchase. Not worth a credit.

    "Really Bad!"

    This was just a boring book with poor narration. It's only 2hr 39min, but I still couldn't finish it. Painfully slow, unsympathetic characters, & unrealistic storyline.
