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
"If our love was lingerie, it would never come off."
Alessandra Torre's books are always so different. That's why I love reading them.
When I started Love in Lingerie, I thought I knew the plot. A love story involving a forbidden relationship at the workplace. Boy, was I wrong!
Kate Martin is applying for a new job. She's smart, creative and has great instincts in regards to lingerie. She knows she could make Marks Lingerie a success. She was not counting on feeling attracted to the owner of the company, Trey Marks. This could complicate her life. After all, she's already engaged.
Trey Marks is trying to stop his company from going into the red. He needs new blood and Kate seems to be the perfect applicant for it. Yet, he shouldn't feel tempted towards her. He shouldn't care that she's already engaged and he shouldn't want to get to know her better. His business should be his first and only concern. Then, why is he risking it all?
This book was hot but also there was a sweetness surrounding the attraction between these two characters. They tried to fight their attraction from the moment they met. Then, slowly they became friends and despite falling for each other, they thought the company and their personal misgivings were going to interfere with their relationship. The build up was a killer. As the reader, you knew they belonged together. It drove me nuts to see them making mistakes and pushing each other away. But, no worries, Alessandra made sure it was worth the wait.
