Love in Lingerie by Alessandra Torre ~ Audiobook Review & Swoon Thursday (@ReadAlessandra)

I've managed to pick up another Alessandra Torre book and I love how Trey described moments in reference to lingerie, since it's a passion of his. This book took place over a couple of years, and I enjoyed the depth of the relationship between Trey and Kate.

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.

I really enjoyed listening to Love in Lingerie. The narrator portrayed both characters well, and I found myself immersed into the world. The story wasn't rushed and the relationship between Trey and Kate strengthened over a few years. It was a beautiful read, and everything I hoped from Alessandra Torre.

Trey hired Kate when he was struggling with his business. He was on the brink of bankruptcy and he needed someone with their own unique vision to build up Marks Lingerie once again. When Trey and Kate met, I could see that they were attracted to one another, but they didn't want to act on their feelings as it may jeopardise their working relationship and the company. Instead, I watched as they carried on their lives, dating and working, and fighting their attraction.

Trey was the alpha male I expected him to be, and he liked a little kink in his sexual relationships. Once Kate entered his life I could see that he was looking at himself differently and wanted something deeper than the quick sexual encounters that he had in the past.

Kate was the vanilla relationship type of girl, but I could see that she was searching for something more than the current relationship she was in. It lacked excitement and spark, and Trey seemed to bring a little bit of fire back into her life. It was good to see her become more confident and work hard to succeed in her new role.

It was good to see Trey and Kate together. They worked well together, despite their attraction for one another. They both grew through out the story and their life goals shifted a little. I liked that the book was set over a few years, so that the depth of their relationship felt real.

I've read a few of Alessandra Torre's books before, and I've enjoyed each book that she'd delivered. I love that she creates unique characters and each exciting new world she created. I'm looking forward to her next project, and that one day I will catch up on some of her earlier work. 

*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

Sigh... This moment was beautiful! I love how delicate Trey was!

I slide my hands down the back of her pants and grip her ass, rolling with her, until she falls back on the leather couch, her hair loose and wild, her eyes burning in a way I have never seen. I pause.
“What? What’s wrong?” she asks, her chest heaving, cheeks flushed.
“Don’t move,” I whisper.
“You’re not coming, are you?” Her eyes widen and God, I fucking love this woman.
“No.” I grin. “I am definitely not coming. I just…” I just want to savor this moment. I just want to remember, forever, how she looks right now, the way she reaches for me, pants for me. I want to remember how her lips are swollen from my kiss, her heart is pounding, the glow of her skin. I swallow. “I just want to tell you that I love you.”
