5 KINK REVIEW | Just because you want something or even need it, doesn’t necessarily mean you should have it. And that’s the rub for Love in Lingerie.
First, I need to make my apologies. I am so heartbroken right now because I didn’t read this on release day. I am so heartbroken it has taken over 6 months to add my stamp of approval. I see now I have to change my game plan. There are some authors who are must buy and Ms. Torre is one of those authors – obviously. However, we need to break it down even more carefully – She is a “must-read now author” as in on Release Day. That is what I am left feeling as I turn the last page and put this in my “read again” column. Why did I wait so long to feel the angst, love, burn and friendship between Trey and Kate? Trey Marks has just hired Kate as his Creative Director to help save his company.
I wish I had the words to explain this author’s writing in the perfect editorial review. I can only say this: She has a way of guiding you with eyes wide open to the top of a mountain. You know you are on this mountain and there is only one way off. You know the way off is a plunge. You are probably thinking “I am ok with jumping because I know what is down below. It’s okay I want to.”
You are walking closer and closer to the edge and you can see the destination she is pushing you toward. However, at the last moment she disappears. Suddenly you turn around and realize she just pulled a David Blaine on you.
You stop and you think to yourself this is not the mountain I was climbing. Where is my mountain? I want my mountain back.
Love in Lingerie is an illusionist dream. You will be seduced into one type of romance and then another and then you are left blissfully confused. This book will seduce you with words about the sex that can happen instead of the sexual act happening. I dare say it will feed your arousal just on the possibilities of what will happen.
As a reader of romance, we have certain expectations of the forbidden office romance genre. We expect the alpa male boss to have an insta-lust attraction. We may expect the heroine to apply for an executive assistance positon ( don’t take my feminist card just yet ). 9 We may have the “I hate my boss” or the . “banging the boss in the copier room.” All these possibilities come into play as you are reading this brilliant book. Or do they? But the best thing about it, you don’t really know which type of romance you are getting until the happily ever after jumps out and bites you on the ass.
This is an office romance you will love. It’s fill with angst without being angsty. This angst does not require you to pull your hair out. It does not require you to throw the book/ereader at your wall. But, it will have you clinching your thighs tightly, crossing your ankles while rubbing them up and down and feeling the burn!!!!!
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.
