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.

~ 5 Sexy Lingerie Stars ~
This has to be the most frustrating, angst filled forbidden romance I have ever read, but I loved ever second of it. This story couldn’t have been told any better.
Even though there were some aspects of the story I didn’t really care for, they didn’t take away from my enjoyment of this story. This book had my emotions all over the place. I was laughing one minute and then I wanted to throw my kindle the next. (although that was the most prominent feeling through parts of this book) Alessandra Torre is a fantastic story teller. Her storylines are interesting and captivating. Her characters are friendly and lovable and easy to relate to.
This story is told over a couple of years, but it doesn’t drag along at all. This is a fairly quick read. I was able to read it in less than a day. She kept the flow and pace of this story moving smoothly. I had a hard time putting this book down. I love how she sucks her readers in and makes you feel like a part of this story and these characters lives.
Love in Lingerie is a forbidden friends to lovers story. We follow the story of Kate and Trey. Trey is the owner of Marks Lingerie Company and his company is slowly going down the hill. Enter Kate who is interviewing for the Creative Director position. They have instant chemistry but Trey has certain rules when it comes to mixing business with pleasure…..he doesn’t do it!!! So over the course of years, their friendship grows, but so do their feelings for each other. Both scared of ruining the business relationship and their friendship, they fight those feelings….causing a lot of Sexual Tension!!! It literally melted my kindle 😉 Will Trey and Kate ever get over their fear and embrace their true feelings?? What happens when Trey’s past secrets come to light, Will Kate be able to accept them?? Will these two ever get a HEA??? You need to read this book to find out.
If you are a fan of Alessandra’s you don’t want to miss this book!!! If you love angst filled forbidden romances between friends, then this is a book you should read. Definitely one of my favorites of 2017!!! I know I will be reading this again in the future.
