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.

4 Perfect for Me Stars ⭐️ 

Love in Lingerie was a slow burn, friends to lover’s office romance that pleasantly surprised me. Anticipating a smutty romance, I was pleased to read a book with many sweet & humorous moments and a seductive undertone.

Trey Marks has built himself from the bottom ranks to create ‘Marks Lingerie’. But his business is flailing and he needs a savior.  Trey has learned the hard way to never mix business with pleasure, so hiring ‘engaged’ Kate Martin is a safe bet, regardless of how attractive he finds her. Kate Martin is thrilled to have scored the position as creative director but she’s not sure what to make of her new gorgeous as sin boss, Trey.

”According to industry rumors, he’s never been married, fucks like an animal, and has a mouth like my shower massager.”

The first half of the book explores these two individuals who work together to restore ‘Mark’s Lingerie’ to its former glory.  An alliance created over hard work, trust and mutual respect.

”I’m wagering everything on this. On you. I need you to understand how important it is for this to succeed.”

Working closely together creates an underlining tension that neither Trey or Kate are willing to explore.  Between the womanizer and the girl who hasn’t set a wedding date; attraction goes ignored and an unlikely friendship is formed.  

”My company needs her. I need her. And, unfortunately, so does my cock. And that right there, is how things fall apart.”

So what happens when two people who are perfect for each other deny their feelings? Between dysfunctional relationships, half truths and longing; friendship and flirtation will only suffice for so long until all the lies they tell themselves unravel.💥
