I have a passion for lacy designs. But my lingerie business is in trouble. If I don’t find an investor before I return to L.A., I’ll be forced to close my London boutique. The good news is the top fashion magazine wants to feature Kate Golden Lingerie in a double page spread. The bad news—they want me to model my lacy thong. 

How can I say no? I care way more about sexy lingerie than I do about love, until him . . . 

Drew, the insanely hot photographer I keep crashing into. I can’t help myself. He drove me wild during our boudoir photo shoot. Those eyes. That delicious mouth. The way he feels between my legs when I’m riding on the back of his motorcycle. I know, he’s a rich, bad boy, who only dates models. Sooo not my type. I’m not his either. But we can’t keep away from each other, even when we try . . .

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Personally, I didn’t quite enjoy reading this book. It was hard to keep myself interested in the story. It was, at times, hard to follow. At times, it felt like information overload.


At the beginning it was really hard to get into the story. The story line tended to drag and there seemed to be an abundance of information. I finally got to a part in the story that grabbed my attention and I really enjoyed what I was reading. It seemed, however, that I had hit another wall and I just couldn’t fall back into the story. I tried and tried and tried. I really wanted to like the story. I wanted to like the characters.


The part of the story I did like, was quite enjoyable. There was some good humor, some witty banter, and provided good detail and descriptions.  The scenery seemed fun and fascinating. The characters held my attention.


However, there is this looming feeling of frustrating at the ability to fully describe what this book lacked. It felt like the author tried a little too hard to write a good book. At times, it felt like the details were too great or it was too wordy. At times, the characters lacked that “oomph” I felt in the middle of the story.


Sadly, I don’t think I could recommend this book and that really saddens me. I really like to try something positive about every book I read and I’m having a hard time with this book. What I do beg of you is that you take my review with a grain of salt. Check out some other reviews and read the blurb. If it sounds like a good read, then give it a shot. Maybe I was in a bad mood when I was reading this story or maybe my mind was wondering.
