Release Day Blitz & Review ~ Love in Lingerie by Alessandra Torre


Love in Lingerie is LIVE!!!!


Book Description:

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.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“If our love was lingerie, it would never come off.”

Love in Lingerie is the epitome of the slow burn, a gorgeous friends to lover’s romance that will have even the hardest of hearts totally melted into a mushy pool. This was a swoon fest and my heart and soul totally fell in love with these two characters. As ever, character connection was on point, dialogue was spot on, humour and wit scattered throughout and Alessandra Torre delivered one of the most intense friendships I have read about in a long, long while.

“Lingerie, I can handle. Visions, I can create. A team, I can inspire. A boss, I can please.”

Alessandra Torre can turn her hand to anything she puts her mind to, from her dark reads to her romantic comedy, Hollywood Dirt, which is still one of my favourite reads…EVER. Love in Lingerie is a contemporary romance with a friends to lover’s trope and as I said above is the epitome of the slow burn. This book makes you wait, and wait, and wait…but with every page, every glance, every word that oozes between this couple you are just willing them to wake up and smell the coffee. These two belong together, they bring out the best in each other, they are best friends, they work amazingly well together, they were just darn perfect.

“If this woman was lingerie, she’d be black leather, with studs along the seams and enough of a dominatrix vibe to give a man pause. If this woman was lingerie I’d strip it off and then properly show her who is in charge.”

Trey and Kate, Kate and Trey, these two went together like peanut butter and jelly. The unlikeliest of friendships in the first instance, yet once these two got going you were perpetually fanning the flames. There was enough electricity between these two to power the national grid and with each turn of the page that connection only intensified. The sexual tension is enough to cause your heart to stop and how these two managed for so long without crossing that line is beyond me. These two were the king and queen of restraint and cold showers.

Trey Marks is struggling, his company has hit the skids and his lingerie company is in desperate need of a breath of fresh air. When Kate walks into his office for the new creative director interview she immediately intrigues him and he thanks the lucky stars that she has an engagement ring on her finger as he has a strict no fraternization policy and that ring will ensure that despite his initial attraction he would never act upon it.

“If my need was lingerie, it’d be blood-red, with lines that scream for attention.”

Kate has been in a stagnant job for over a decade and when the current creative director announces once again that she won’t be retiring Kate soon realises if she wants her career to progress then she needs to change jobs. Kate is well aware of Trey Mark’s reputation and as soon as their eyes meet she feels parts stir that shouldn’t, but for the sake of her career she could hold herself back.

“I don’t need Trey in my bed, as my boyfriend. I can be happy having him everywhere else.”

Herein starts one of my favourite friendships both as co-workers and outside of work. These two bounce off each other, they lift each other, they support each other, through work trials and tribulations as well as relationship woes too. These two never crossing the line because of that dreaded policy and also the intense fear of wrecking the friendship they both treasure more than anything in the world.

“I’ve wondered if we’d have chemistry or whether our tension was all a myth, the promise of the unattainable only hot because of its impossibility.”

Love in Lingerie was a fantastic read. Light hearted, swoon worthy, intense, low on angst but high on all the feels and emotion. This is a great sweep yourself away from the rest of the world read that is all-consuming, heart-warming and soul lifting. Totally loved it.
