I hired her to fix my company, to bring Marks Lingerie back to life. I didn’t expect her to become my friend. I didn’t 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 friend—a 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 can’t wait any longer. I’m tossing out the rules.
Damn the company.
Damn our friendship.
Damn my fears.
I love when my expectations gets blown to smithereens. That's exactly what Alessandra Torre did with Love in Lingerie.
I went into this story expecting a fun romance and sizzling hot chemistry between the main characters.
Well I got that and so much more.
A hundred percent more.
I got blown away by this very well developed and wonderfully paced story with fabulous characters.
The main characters Kate and Trey were beautifully written and
flawed in their own way.
Kate was my kind of woman.
She was down to earth,
humbled and secure
in her own sexuality and skills
regarding her work as a creative director.
Trey was just as amazing as Kate. He's had his share of women but always
treated them with respect.
He's very dedicated to his company
I was very intrigued by him because he had his secrets and also had his struggles with his company.
I had a crush on both Kate and Trey.
Both individually and together did they show strength and vulnerability.
This wasn't just about forbidden romance because they worked together.
No, it was how a friendship was built and grew into something more.
Their friendship was phenomenal because
of their chemistry but also because they became each other's best friend.
The pace and development of their friendship was flawlessly written and explored, that I felt their hesitation, fear and love they had for taking the next step into a relationship.
Their chemistry was delicious and intense. The push and pull, the flirting between them only showed how crazy attracted and in love they were with one another.
The epilogue was fantastic and my admiration for this story only grew.
What a perfect end to a mesmerizing story.
Alessandra Torre can create
anything with words.
Her prose is poignant and feels effortless. She can surprise me, make me swoon and literally make my head and heart hurt because of the twists and turns.
Love In Lingerie gave me all of these emotions and I enjoyed every one them.
Definitely 5 star worthy.
