Love in Lingerie promised to deliver on a trope I favour, office romance. When written well, office connections can be intense and thrilling. The office context is cleverly constructed and underpins the story well. The significant timeline for this story is a real strength, the long haul being the focus.
The connection between the MCs Trey and Kate was definitely intense. I devoured their story initially but as the story progressed I did become a little frustrated with a repetitive back and forth and a lack of courage from these two. However, I enjoyed their friendship and their misfires on the journey. I’m a fan of the slow burn so that element was a definite plus. The tension between Kate and Trey was ever-present and I couldn’t help but be compelled by their story. The secret between them underwhelmed me however, and I longed for a Torre-twist.
I liked this book but I didn’t love it. Because I’m a Alessandra Torre fan in every genre she’s written, I have expectations and this one didn’t wholly meet mine. I found it light in flavour and I wanted more from the couple. That said, it delivers on a light contemporary romance that is a short-ish, sexy read.
A copy of is book was provided by the author in return for an honest review.
