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.
Trey Marks’ business is failing. He needs a new Creative Director that can turn his business out of the red and into the black. When he brings Kate Martin on board he thinks that he has everything under control. She’s engaged, therefore there is no danger of breaking his own ‘no fraternizing’ rule despite the immediate chemistry they have between them.
Kate Martin needs a change. She’s spent the last 10 years being denied the promotion that she was promised. When she finds out that Marks Lingerie is in need of a new Creative Direction, she jumps at the chance to finally move up in her career.
He needs a Creative Director, and I need a new job. Word on the street is that Mark Lingerie is struggling, and I don’t need a psychology degree to read the stress that frames his cocky stare.
Kate begins to make major changes to Marks Lingerie which enrages Trey, but in time she is able to prove her worth. Trey leaves the future of his company in her hands. Marks Lingerie is soon in the black as Kate revitalizes Mark Lingerie.
I’m wagering everything on this. On you. I need you to understand how important it is for this to succeed.
Soon Trey and Kate become a power house. It’s undeniable that they are both attracted together, but they both have acknowledged that it would be detrimental to the company.
Baby Jesus in a Manger. The man should be illegal.
I’m going to some up this book in one phase: It’s a big cock-tease. Yup, I said that right, cock-tease. It’s definitely hot. This book definitely gave me the shivers(the good kind) and made my ears burn up in heat. But this is not your typical love story. This is not simple. This is not picturesque. This gets dark and dirty and it pissed me off. I was about ready to throw in the towel, but Alessandra is one of my favorite writers, so I knew to hang in there. She always delivers.
FINALLY Trey realizes that he would be losing a lot more than his company if he didn’t face the fact that he can’t be without Kate.
It had been the news of her date that had broken my restraint, the way she had bounded inside, full of stories and smiles, as if this guy was a possibility, as if he could , in any way, make her happy. I had seen hope in her eyes, and a panic switch in my heart had tripped.
I’m sorry, is it hot in here? **fans self** Trey Marks has all the right words. And what that man can do with a pen… Let’s just say that the last 10% makes up for all the frustration that you feel from 50%-80%. Yeah…that’s a lot of frustration, but totally worth it!
I loved how Alessandra always has some sort of connection in her books. With this one it’s Trey’s comparison to how a person or a situation is like lingerie. It’s genius, it’s sexy, it ties the book in perfectly.
If our love was lingerie, it’d be a corset, one laced so tightly that it takes your breath.
If our love was lingerie, it would be drawn on her skin with ink, a tattoo designed to bend and grow with her.
If our love was lingerie, it would be see-through lace that would share everything while still teasing the hell out of both parties.
If our love was lingerie, it’d be leather, thin strips of binding that could withstand a hundred years of war and peace, fights and love-making. It would yield and give, yet never rip or break. It would be build to last, to wear forever.
If our love was lingerie, it would never come off.
