I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I hired her to fix my company, to bring Marks Lingerie back to life. I didnÔÇÖt expect her to become my friend. I didnÔÇÖt expect to fall in love with her.
The first rule of business is to never touch your employees. I think there is another rule about not falling for your best friendÔÇöa rule against imagining the curves of her body, or the way her breathing would change if I pulled down her panties and unzipped my pants.
Now, I canÔÇÖt wait any longer. IÔÇÖm tossing out the rules.
Damn the company.
Damn our friendship.
Damn my fears.
Him and Her. Trey and Kate. Co-workers and best friends who Alessandra Torre crafts into a delicious couple in this friends to lovers story. I read this story is one fell swoop, meaning I lost almost a full night of sleep but I was glad for the sacrifice. Trey and Kate worked their way into my heart and I simply needed to see how they worked through the many roadblocks of a them.
Love in Lingerie is perfectly paced, showing the initial spark between boss (Trey) & employee (Kate) and how that relationship shifts into a unique and beautiful friendship. But there’s an undercurrent, an atmosphere of intense sexual attraction between them that is tested and put to the side. Usually I have an affinity for one characters or the other, but in this case I adore Trey and Kate equally. There is really no doubt how much they love each other giving us that angsty component. They both work to have romantic relationships with others and simultaneously burying their own jealousy and the fear of losing a place in each others lives.
Any read from Alessandra is a sure thing but what really stands out for me is the way she develops their friendship. As well, anything by Alessandra is going to be HOT and with Trey and Kate trying to avoid the draw between them, it’s an especially sultry read. The heat between them is undeniable but there is simply too much to lose if things don’t work out, but it’s up them to work out the risk versus reward factor as they do with flair! 5 Stars and recommendation!
