Title – Love in Lingerie
Author – Alessandra Torre
Publication Date – January 16, 2017
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.
Alessandra Torre has proven to be that sweet tooth item you crave, but didn’t think you needed. However, after it’s consumed, you realize that it hits the spot in the perfect way and maybe your body did require it. Once again, Torre has hit it out of the park and was just what I wanted to get lost in. Love in Lingerie was the perfect combination of sweet and sultry blended with sexy anticipation. Kate and Trey have such a unique relationship and it was so much fun to watch that come across the pages.
“It’s as simple as that. But nothing is ever simple, not when it involves the two of us.”
These two became fast friends and I honestly loved drowning in it. They were flirtatious, yet cautious given the business side of their relationship. However, it warmed my heart whenever they referred to each other as best friends. Though the sexual tension could be felt sizzling from the pages, there was such a sweet build of that angst that I couldn’t help but be on the edge of my seat, waiting for the explosion. Their banter always seemed to be on point – whether it was about relationships or the lingerie – and their voices took me on a ride that I never wanted to get off of.
“When a kiss waits for a thousand days, it erupts like a cyclone—a slow unfurling of lips, of tongues, hands ripping, clothes flying, hot swirls of breath met with a clash of frantic desire.”
Love in Lingerie is written in dual points of view from both of the main characters and I was SO beyond grateful. Those inner thoughts and feelings were so instrumental to my overall connection to the story. Given how much they were denying their feelings and not allowing themselves to give in, it was those moments that I found to be pivotal to see how Kate and Trey got from point A to point B.
“If our love was lingerie, it’d be a corset, one laced so tightly that it takes your breath.”
If there is one thing I have come to depend on, it’s the fact that Alessandra Torre doesn’t ever disappoint. Whether she is writing a book with insane twists or a sweet love story, she forces you to fall in love with her characters in the best way possible. Love in Lingerie may not surprise you around every corner, but the angst and relationship will keep you turning page after page. Torre excels in whatever she chooses to write, but the addictive romances like this one are most certainly not to miss!
