Alessandra has surprised my expectations when it comes down to the act of seduction and idea of pleasure having its own time. She has this magnificent way to show her readers a new idea that at first does not sound appealing, but leads to a better understand to a new life style. This story starts off with Kate being interviewed for a new job position for Trey’s company that designs and produces lingerie of all types. It’s an odd job but that being said, it makes it rather unique because you do not read a lot about a man owning a lingerie company and making his fortunes from it. Unless of course you are the owner of Victoria’s Secrets.
The story starts to slowly become confusing at first due to my questioning as to how the two main characters will move past the obstacles that are present in their lives. Though they start off as co-workers, they slowly throughout time learnt o become best friends. Going over each other’s place without invites, knowing what each other likes… stuff that only best friends, and in some scenarios, couples would do. Even though one of their biggest obstacles in the beginning of the story has something to do with Kate and her former FIANCE, they both somehow learn that their attraction for each other is not just only in the physical sense, but also in the emotional environment.
Alessandra continues the story by providing an emotional attachment from the character to the reader. Throughout the story, when you have Kate and trey fighting their chemistry and avoiding it instead of confronting it, the vibes of sympathy is there. Whenever Kate speaks about Craig, her former-fiance, there is a sense of loneliness that drags the reader to a comfort towards Kate’s feelings.
Slowly things being to deteriorate in the friendship status between Kate and Trey. They both begin to learn that its better to be together and move along from their pasts and continue a future together, even with the surprising turn of events coming from Trey and his “fetishes.” The tension though…. inhales
Honestly, the last time I read a story where the tension rises all the way to the highest level of the empire state building, was YEARS ago. It is so refreshing knowing that even though through books, there is a presence of knowing what you want and knowing how to control your feelings for it. Even if its during times of agony, because this book is the finest definition of absolute agony, filed with an abundance of tension surrounding the main characters. It was beyond incredible to read and enjoy the slow process of accepting the way Trey was and how he came to be once he established himself with the woman of his dreams.
