‘Time And Elevators Heal All Wounds’ By Eryn LaPlant

In 1993 Rachel Bradley was humiliated in front of her history class by a rogue jock named Kyle Jones. It was a day she’d never forget despite moving away and becoming a successful entrepreneur in San Diego.

Ten years later, at one of her events, a random gentleman signed in for a charity bachelor auction. He was none other than the kid who brought her shame and disgrace, Kyle Jones. But before Rachel could confront him on the matter an earthquake, a damaged elevator, and a plunging fall take precedence.

Will ten years of humiliation be erased after being trapped in a crumpled elevator? Or will the hurt remain between them?
