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 pu

Alessandra Torre I BOW DOWN TO YOU!!! I cannot even begin to tell you how FUCKING AMAZING Love In Lingerie is. I mean I'll try but hot damn, NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING, I say will do this book justice.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐! Love in Lingerie (stand-alone). Sexual-tension galore as Kate is hired to save a lingerie company & is stripped bare by her boss, Trey!

“If this woman was lingerie, I’d strip it off and then properly show her who is in charge.”

Love in Lingerie (stand-alone) opens up to lingerie executive Kate Martin interviewing for the position of creative director with Marks Lingerie’s owner Trey Marks. It represents her dream job and entails an overhaul to save his struggling empire.

Alessandra Torre has a way of telling stories that suck me in and make me fall in love, even as my brain is telling me that I shouldn't. She is the queen of writing forbidden love stories that leave you feeling conflicted and questioning your sense of right and wrong. She doesn't seem to focus as much on huge, "in your face" subjects. Rather, she skirts the edges of what is generally considered socially acceptable behavior.

Whatever her magic formula is, it is working! She never fails to captiva

Love in Lingerie is a forbidden love story/a friends to lovers romance at it’s finest. If you’re like me and love a drawn out romance- Alessandra creates the most delicious slow burn and sexual tension between Trey and Kate. This book enamored me from the start. It has the perfect amount of angst and the plot has just a touch of mystery in it. I just loved everything about it.

“He should have told me this. He should have told me this years ago, before I fell in love with him, before he injected his soul into my veins and I became addicted.”

This is not your usual office romance! True to Alessandra Torre's brilliant storytelling abilities, this sexy forbidden romance has emotional depth, angsty surprises, and a wonderful balance between humor, hotness, and emotions. I read this book cover-to-cover in one sitting and loved it!!

LOVE IN LINGERIE is a sexy and angst filled standalone about an office romance between the CEO of Mark’s Lingerie, Trey Marks, and his Creative Director, Kate Martin. There is definitely a slow but agonizing build till we get to the action between the main characters but there are several scenes where we get a little tease of what’s to come. I don’t know whether to commend the author or be angry with her for the torture I had to endure. I was dying for Trey and Kate to finall

I adore Alessandra Torre’s versatile writing skills. She’s the author of two of my favorite dark series and then there’s the adorable stories she has put out like Hollywood Dirt and Love Chloe. She is truly an author that the old grocery list comment is meant for!


In this novel, she delivers a slow burn romance about coworkers that through the years hold off on acting on their sexual attraction. Our hero, Trey Marks has very specific sexual tastes and the thought of Kate ever know

"If our love was a lingerie, it'd be a corset, one laced so tightly that it takes your breath."

Love in Lingerie is Alessandra Torre's newest book. It was an enjoyable read, but I think it wasn't as good as her previous books.

The book started when Kate Martin applied for a Creative Director position at Marks Lingerie. Her job is to help save the sinking company and bring it back to life. The first time she met the owner of the company Trey Marks, she instantly felt the palpable sexual

Holy wow, AT sure knows how to write some hot books! Ms. Torre took a unique twist on the usual erotica novels with Love in Lingerie and made it something teasingly sexy.

Trey Marks is a man with far from simple needs, he needs his company to not go under, he needs Kate to help him get his business profitable, and he needs to not want to bend her over his desk. She's off limits to him since she's his employee and more than that, not suited to him sexu

LOVE IN LINGERIE is SEXY. EROTIC. And BEAUTIFUL. Trey hires intelligent and sassy Kate Martin to help save Marks Lingerie from its downward spiral, what he doesn't expect is to find a best friend, a friend who would become so much more. The problem is, Trey doesn't date staff, he certainly wouldn't date a friend and risk her finding out the truth of his desires for fear it may all be too much. The story arc develops over a trajectory of four years depicting an addictive and sexy friends- to-love

For me, making love always has been intertwined with being in love - even during the times I was trying to convince myself that this could not be happening and this was just a matter of attraction and I was not really falling for that guy.
In the same actually way I have never in my life had sex with anybody, while I was in love with someone else – even if I knew that my feelings were going nowhere.

Anyway, now I am happily married for many years and these thoughts are just part of my past and my
The blurb is misleading. They're both dating/fucking other people even though they have feelings for each other and he's supposedly in love with her.

In one scene he leaves after having had sex with OW and goes back to his room where the heroine is sleeping. He's picks her up to move her to her bed while thinking about how much he wants her.

“If our relationship was lingerie, it’d be fur-lined handcuffs, latched around you, the key lost, escape impossible.

Talk about sexual tension!! Alessandra Torre certainly knows how to leave you panting for more. Just when you think you couldn’t handle any more of the hot intensity, she goes and cranks it up just a little bit more. And if that wasn’t enough, now you’re left with trying to decide if you should just keep your head in the freezer for the duration of the story

WOW! Alessandra Torre is such an amazing writer. Not only is this story hot and steamy at times, but it's sensual, romantic, and truly heartfelt. I loved Trey and Kate. While circumstances kept them apart, their feelings never went away. This is a fantastic hot read, the chemistry between the main characters is flammable. This story has a strong story line with great characters, full of romance and erotic scenes.
It totally deserves the 5 stars I’m giving it!

When Trey Marks hires a new Creative Director to bring his lingerie company back to the spotlight and bring profit again, he never expected Kate Martin to take his heart away as much as it pains him, he fights his attraction towards her and has a "no fraternization" policy at his company, makes it somewhat easier to hold on to the frienship they develop...until the time comes, when he can't bear the thought of seeing Kate with others, and even his own kinky sexual encounters c

When it comes to well-written, skin-tingling romances that make you addicted to their every page, Alessandra Torre is my go-to author. In her bold signature style, Torre pens a tender, erotic love story with incredibly dynamic protagonists and loads of sexual tension between them, gripping from the start and paced just right until the very end.

I was captivated by the uniqueness of the storyline but also by the friendship and relationship Trey had with Kate. I couldn’t put the book down. The intense sexual attraction and flirtyness had me squirming in my seat. Trey turned up the heat, just by walking into a room. And the ‘maybe, maybe not’ drove me insane with anticipatio
