Becca always starts her day sipping a latte and watching the piping hot Mr. Sexy. When they get stuck together in an elevator, it only takes a minute for Becca's panic attack to take over. What she needs is to focus on something else. Something hot. Something dirty. Good thing Mr. Sexy knows a thing or two about distraction.

Love in an elevator...sounds like a bouncy song title? When it comes to Her 5 Favorite Words, they aren’t the five words, but they are darn close.

I knew going into this story, it would be quick. Still, quick doesn’t take away from the sizzle quotient. Whew! I had to check my fingers for burns. I felt the sparks between Becca and Jordan immediately and didn’t want the story to end.

Ms. Gordon’s story hooked me right away with her descriptions of Jordan. The man is hot and the stuff of naughty fantasy. No wonder Becca was ensnared! I wanted to see Jordan finesse his way with Becca from page one and when he did... it was nice.

Becca came across as a bit horny and conflicted. She wants to want Jordan, but she’s not even sure of his name. Must mean she needs sex, right? I liked that she went for what she wanted and the claustrophobia of the stuck elevator helped heighten the sexual tension. Still, she was almost too wanton. But it added to the story and made her more realistic—she had needs and wants and wanted to fulfill them. I can relate to that. The dirty talk in the midst of the love scenes added a special spice and enhanced the sexiness.

Although this isn’t a traditional HEA, I found I liked the ending and felt it fit the story well.

If you want a steamy read you won’t be able to put down, then you need to get a copy of Her 5 Favorite Words. This 4 cherry book is one you won’t want to miss.
