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.


Love in Lingerie is not your typical office romance, this was a slow burn, friends-to-lovers story; full of angst and emotion. Taking place over several years, the two main characters fall in love pretty much at first sight, but their journey is not an easy one. Trey is the owner of his lingerie company, and having been bitten once before, he refuses to risk both his business and his friendship by crossing the line from friends to something more with his Creative Designer, Kate.

I love a book with oodles of sexual tension, and this book had it in spades. The slow burn was quite unexpected but I welcomed it with open arms, I was so eager for this couple to move past all the obstacle’s that came their way, and when it finally happened, I was in heaven.

“When a kiss waits for a thousand days, it erupts like a cyclone.”

A special mention goes to Kate, our heroine – she was a fantastically strong personality who wasn’t afraid to face things head on, and even though she could be a bit naive at times, it only added to her charm.

Trey was adorable and created some swoon-worthy moments, although sometimes painful to watch how he pined after Kate, even when he was in other relationships.

Definitely my kind of book, a highly recommended read for lovers of angst and delayed HEA’s.

Love in Lingerie is a stand-alone contemporary romance, told from dual POV.
