Going Down by Katherine Stevens-Amy’s Review

I was told by a trusted book friend that Katherine was an amazing author and that I would love her book so I gave it a try.


4 stars


The plan for Cici Carrington was to steadily climb UP the corporate ladder, and hopefully do so without her skirt tucked into the back of her underpants. Unfortunately, there was no contingency plan for the aftermath of spending a night trapped in an elevator with a suit-wearing Elevator Sex God named Cole Danvers. A one…or two-time dalliance wouldn’t normally throw off the course of someone’s life…unless you find out you have to work together the next day.

To further complicate matters, Cici’s best friend is also her Human Resources Director. She has to hide her secret from every person she knows. Her only confidant is her one-eyed cat, and his loyalty is tenuous at best. Toss in an accidental mugging, a bungled disguise, secret meetings, and unintentional arson, and Cici’s beautiful, careful plan has fallen by the wayside.

Perhaps there aren’t any hard and fast rules in life. Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too. Sometimes following the rules doesn’t get you ahead.

And perhaps sometimes you can get off between floors…

I have NEVER laughed so loud, hard, or often as I did while reading this book.   It started if off with a bang (literally) and only got better and better.  I loved the preface of the book.  I loved that Cici wasn’t your typical heroine.  She wasn’t perfect, crazy shit happened to her on a regular basis and she just rolled with it.

A huge laugh out loud, insta love in this book for me was Maggie.  She was an epic BFF from her meddling in all things (but especially love life), fashion advice, and larger than life  personality she brought so much life, and laughter to this book.

What I loved about this book the most was CiCi and Cole’s relationship isn’t like your typical story.   It’s almost like their roles are reversed.  Cici has more of a man’s position/attitude, while Cole seems to have more of the female attitude about things.

I see so many good things to come for Katherine.  I can’t wait to see what she gives us next!
