A standalone romance from the New York Times Bestselling author of Black Lies and Hollywood Dirt…
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 the relationship that Trey and Kate build in the story was lingerie, it would start as a negligee, leaving more to the imagination than not; it would then transition to a corset, slowly revealing some of their assets, but still holding parts securely in place due to circumstances and fears, and then, finally, when everything has been stripped away, the lingerie would simply be a G-string because at the end, it’s more about ripping away the final obstacle holding them both back from taking what they’ve wanted since their first meeting.
Love in Lingerie is so much more than an office romance…it’s so much more than a friends to lovers storyline, and it’s not because of Trey’s views on interoffice relationships, nor the sexual tension that resonates off of every page when Trey and Kate are present, nor is it the fact that Kate has someone else in her life, but what makes Trey and Kate’s story enthralling, addictive, and must read is the fluidity of their relationship and the unknowing steps that are taken to solidify a bond between them…one where their connection becomes less about saving Marks Lingerie and more about being who the other person needs in every facet of their life.
Alessandra Torre, once again, overwhelms me with her flawless writing and the masterful creation of her characters. Trey and Kate are deeply complex characters, which makes them not easy to read, so hearing the ups and downs of their relationship as well as their thoughts and feelings about one another in their own words allows readers to truly understand the decisions Trey and Kate make in regards to not acting on their feelings and the constant state of desire they feel in each other’s presence, which then makes the build up of their longing and need that much more orgasmic towards the end of the story.
Love in Lingerie is so much more than readers will think it is just by reading the blurb, which is exactly the kind of stories I adore!
Trey and Kate’s story is a definite must-read!
