Publisher's Summary

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.

Warning: This standalone is packed with sexual tension, insane chemistry, and enough surprises to keep you listening. May cause distraction from life and require a change of panties.

Enjoyable listen

I enjoyed this book, but was supper annoyed with kates judgemental prudish ways, especially toward the end. Great thing was how the author bought it all back together and thats why i gave this book 5 stars all round :)

Prepare for a long haul with little reward...

The last Alessandra Torre book I read was Moonshot. That was a good book. Love in Lingerie however fell very short of that mark.

This is a typical office romance between a hyper-sexual alpha boss and his attractive subordinate. The heroine will go through two long term relationships both destined for the altar, whilst the hero runs through countless anonymous sexual encounters and one long-term relationship.

Both pine for each other but the other people in their lives, and a flimsy excuse of a non-fraternization work policy keeps the couple firmly in the friend/co-worker zone despite chemistry, mutual desire, and eventually love. There is innuendo, flirting, and some fleeting touches through the book. My problem with this story is how long it took for the couple to finally get together (not until the last hour of the book!).

This story is told from dual POVs, all narrated by Rose Dioro. I find Ms. Dioro's narration just okay. Her speech is a bit too breathy for me, and I didn't like the way she voiced male characters.

I just wish there had been more plot to this book. Some twists, secrets, or a crazy ex in the mix would have helped. In the end, I just found it boring and frustrating. There wasn't enough of a story to sustain the reader until that final hour when the relationship finally came to fruition.

Not worth my credit. It is back to the return bin for this one. I just wish I could get that wasted listening time back.

Nothing Much

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

not really

What three words best describe Rose Dioro’s voice?

I wish a dual narrator. A male voice for the male character

Any additional comments?

The story line is so flat. This could be a 1 hr novella.

Talk about a SLOW BURN

I love a slow burn but this was like 6 hours of foreplay. I loved the characters, I loved the story line and I loved the flirting/burning the characters had for each other. I will say I do wish the story had been longer so it was 50/50 on the slow burn and actual fire.

As always, I love this author's writing. At first I didn't think I was going to like the narrator but in the end I really enjoyed her work.

Slow burn to epic explosion

Oh what a spark had ignited between Kate and Trey the day she began working for the Lingerie mogul. It started small and throughout the trials and tribulations of bringing the failing company back to life, that spark started burning hotter and hotter until it fully ignited into an all out 5 alarm fire.

This was probably the slowest burn in a book I have read or listened to. Although at one point I was like... come on! Just happen!! The waiting ended up being worth it and I just loved the story.

Rose Dioro is an awesome narrator and was perfect for Kate. I really wish it would have been dual narration since Trey did have his own chapters, but Rose handled it with ease.

Okay story, didn't love the narration

This was an okay read. It had a lot of dancing around and teasing between Trey and Kate and I liked their chemistry, but it went on too long. Kate was also judgmental about some things which I didn't like. The narration would have been better if a guy had done Trey's parts, I didn't think the narrator had a great male voice. The storyline was pretty good and this was a fairly short read. The lingerie parts were interesting and I liked seeing their business grow. The ending was cute.

Just Ok for me

I really like Torre books, but this one wasn’t a fave. The storyline was just ok. The work romance nice but their relationship felt a bit pushed and not super interesting. I like Trey and his kink. Kate was ok.

An Angsty and Sexy Tease

Wow.
Love in Lingerie was angsty, with emotional battles and sexy banter that steamed my glasses. The build-up between the main characters over the course of time was frustrating but all in a good way.
Alessandra Torre has never failed me with her writing. Whether it's a dark and way out of the box piece or a sexy and teasing burn, her stories hold an emotional grip on you all the way to the end.
Rose Dioro is an amazing narrator, bringing both the male and female characters to life. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book.
