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.

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.

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 :)
