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.
My 5 Star Review
O.M.G! I freaking love Alessandra Torre’s writing! I think most of my friends know this. I went into Love in Lingeriethinking this would be a romance, maybe a little erotic or a lot. I would be totally fine a little erotica since Torre’s Innocence trilogy is one of my favorites. HOWEVER, this book took friends to lovers to whole other level and was unbelievably perfect!
Trey Marks, a self-made millionaire owns Marks Lingerie which and they are currently struggling to survive. In search of a new Creative Director, he hires Kate Martin. He is instantly attracted to Kate, but he has a no fraternization policy and he firmly enforces it for all employees. Kate is obviously attracted to Trey but is engaged to another man. While she can appreciate his sex appeal and striking good looks that is where her thoughts stop regarding Trey.
At least that was her plan. Work hard, rebuild the Marks brand and maintain a distance from Trey. Things don't always go according to plan and over time these two develop a true friendship and their sexual chemistry increases.
Torre’s slow burn was perfect. I was so freaking hooked on this story and couldn’t wait to turn the page. I loved how these two were best friends. I loved their banter. I loved how they saw each other. AND I freaking love how their chemistry is off the charts.
It’s no secret I love Torre’s writing. I especially love how this story was more than I expected. It's the first slow burn I have read from Torre and it was absolutely perfect. Love in Lingerie had me so excited to turn the page and I couldn’t put it down. I read this book in one sitting and from the first page was hooked. Trey and Kate brought out the best in each other and reading their story was the perfect escape.
I highly recommend Love in Lingerie book. It’s sexy, fun and will have you excited to turn the page! Days later I am still thinking about Kate and Trey!
