Joe Taylor is an elevator installer who enjoys his work. If he could put in a bid for his ideal position, it would come with a permanent location and a team to call his own. As it is, his current job leaves little chance of that happening. Trepidation over the possible reactions of his employer and coworkers makes him keep his sexual preference close to the vest.

Bill Evans has a mission and game plan. Building his career has put a possible long term relationship on the back burner. Bill is sure that’s an ideal option until he looks into the soulful brown eyes of Joe. There was so much there that he was drawn to the man and couldn’t let go of the hopes of seeing those eyes glowing brightly below him.

When the opportunity presents itself, will Bill and Joe keep things simple or will they decide to give love a try?

Bill is a man of action. While he was determined to get what he wanted, he wasn’t willing to hurt Joe in the process. Joe’s shy personality is a refreshing change from the norm and adds a wonderful element to the story. Their relationship alters as much as their individual personalities after the men finally meet.

Serena Yates’ The Elevator Mechanic is part of the Workplace Encounters series. She has the ability to make her charming characters believable and multidimensional. Even during this short tale, the men evolved. Their mutual respect was clear and enhances their relationship. You could see them pull strength from one another in various areas of the story and I knew it wouldn’t be long until the saw what I did; that their relationship wasn’t trivial but would become lasting and permanent. And their encounters are sensual and laced with love. I’m looking forward to future releases for this series.
